If Bob wants to get laid and has to choose between asking Alice, a beautiful woman with an active sex life, and Claire, a [[HollywoodHomely "plain"]] woman looking to keep her virtue for her wedding night, Bob will always choose Claire.

Virgins are presented as more cherished or desirable than unvirgins.

* Played straighter than an arrow for laughs in the play and film ''Film/ReeferMadness'', well, the one that wasn't made in the thirties. Mary, the token adorable little miss diabetes-inducing sweetness, is the high school sweetheart the protagonist falls for. Sally, the only woman with a libido, is the 'reefer den slut' who boasts about being in 'more laps than a napkin.' Sally can seduce the protagonist, but only Mary can redeem him of the vile weed. Of course, one puff of the whacky tabbacy and Mary turns into a reefer slut as well. Hilarity and [[spoiler: DeathBySex]] follow.

* ''Music/UnfinishedMusicNo1TwoVirgins'' by Music/JohnLennon and and Music/YokoOno alludes to this. At the time both of them weren't virgins any more, but they were so in love after meeting each other that they ''felt'' like virgins again. Thus the title.

The reasons behind this vary depending on the period of the story and the characters themselves. In early stories it's because SexIsEvil, and virginity is a sign of purity, and thus desirability -- and also giving the man some hope of averting MamasBabyPapasMaybe, since it's evidence that she doesn't just sleep around. Modern stories often follow the Madonna/Whore Complex: men marry the Madonna, but sleep with the Whore. There's also the bragging rights behind bedding a virgin, which would be a BIG notch in any [[TheCasanova Casanova]]'s or rare male [[TheVamp Vamp's]] belt. The [[UnfortunateImplications assumptions here]] are that [[VirginShaming men are not allowed to be virgins]], and the [[VirginityMakesYouStupid virginal are idiots]], and [[MadonnaWhoreComplex non-virginal women are whores]]. It bears repeating that this can be a gender neutral trope; when a man ''is'' a virgin, that signals to women that this guy is likely waiting for love and not just wanting a one-night stand.

** And played ''very'' darkly in another episode where the VillainOfTheWeek specifically targets virgins to rape. He "justifies" it by saying that his wife wasn't a virgin when they got married--as if that's any kind of justification. And he was already a sexual predator before they met, further showing his excuse to be a load of bull.
