** Also both brothers are both a little bit nerdy, Dean constantly [[ShoutOut dropping references]] and Sam being a former law student, and seem to have no trouble getting laid.

This trope can apply to female nerds as easily as male nerds, but thanks to the DoubleStandard, the males are far more likely to [[AllMenArePerverts find unwholesome outlets for their unexpressed sexuality]], virginity notwithstanding. Also, because males are expected to make the first move, female nerds are not at a disadvantage due to shyness or social ineptness. In fact, male nerds have just as much chance of being the CasanovaWannabe as any other type of male character. Some males (and a rare female or two) may try to [[OfCourseImNotAVirgin deny their virginity]], out of [[SexAsRiteOfPassage fear of losing face]], but thanks to their nerdy exteriors, they are unlikely to be believed by other characters, [[BlatantLies if they even have the social graces to spin a convincing lie in the first place]]. Another possible reason that female nerds are less likely to be virgins is because AllMenArePerverts and AManIsAlwaysEager in Fiction Land, and couldn't care less about what a woman's hobbies are as long as she's letting him have sex with her. [[note]]Sociological experiments have shown that the majority of the male population will indeed say yes to any somewhat attractive woman offering sex even if he doesn't yet know a thing about her, so this portrayal isn't entirely without a basis in reality.[[/note]] Women on the other hand are often depicted as far more discriminating and will reject a partner whose hobbies aren't "cool" enough. Hence the use of terms like "girl repellent" (or the less G-Rated version "pussy repellent") to describe nerdy things.

Now, this does have some [[Main/TruthInTelevision real life basis,]] in that some nerds and geeks do lack some social skills, and take up unusual interests as a way to fill the gap in their lives (or, more unfortunately, fail to develop social skills ''because'' of said interests). Some might just be [[{{Asexuality}} asexual]].
