* Music/DieAntwoord's video for "Baby's On Fire," where the duo plays a pair of siblings, exposes the DoubleStandard this trope creates: Ninja sleeps with every girl in town, but flips out every time Yo-Landi tries to have a sex life of her own, chasing every boyfriend away with increasingly-larger weapons. The video ends with her grabbing a brick and knocking him senseless as she runs off with her new love.

# If the couple breaks up, the friendship is over.
# The boyfriend (and in some cases the brother) may have a history of being, shall we say, "less than respectful" of their "conquests" and the brother doesn't want his sister getting the same treatment.

* This is actually the story behind the band No Doubt. Gwen Stefani's brother, Eric, started the band and she liked fellow band member, and friend of the family, Tony Kanal. He thought she was off limits, but they did end up dating for a while in secret. The relationship was less than successful, as reflected in some of the group's songs like "Don't Speak". Everything turned out okay in the end, though, and she is happily married now, and he is also in a relationship. She sang about this in the song "Cool", indicating that they had closure.

The brother's efforts may lose their effectiveness, however, if the sister tells him to get lost or otherwise actively ruins his attempts to prevent the boyfriend from dating her. After all, the sister may not take kindly to ''anyone'', not even her brother, trying to control who she can and cannot date.
