* Averted in the manga ''Manga/BlackLagoon'', Benny the ship's tech is the only one shown to have a sex life and he got the girl he got ''because'' of his hacking skills. The other characters probably aren't virgins, though.

Added DiffLines:

* On ''{{WesternAnimation/Daria}},'' both [[IntelligenceEqualsIsolation Daria]] and her artsy best friend [[CoolLoser Jane]] end the series as virgins; of the other notable characters in their grade, the only one not implied to have sex is [[ExtrovertedNerd Upchuck]]. There was an episode where Daria and [[TallDarkAndSnarky Tom]] almost have sex, but Daria [[LetsWaitAWhile can't go through with it]].
** Interestingly {{Inverted}} with Daria's popular, boy-crazy sister [[LovableLibby Quinn]], who is implied to have a ParalyzingFearOfSexuality. In fact, there's not really any indication that anyone in [[GirlPosse the Fashion Club]] has had sex.

** Averted with Charlie, a semi-recurring character who {{LARP}}s and loves HarryPotter, and is implied in her introduction to get some rather regularly. 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.

* ''RevengeOfTheNerds'' plays with this in varying degrees. Clearly some of the nerds are out of their depth sexually, but Gilbert seems fine at attracting nerdy girls, Lewis comes off as a sexual maestro, and Booger clearly has enough experience to take an illegitimate child scare seriously in the fourth movie.

* In ''TheBreakfastClub'', Brian Johnson (the "brain") is a virgin... but so are Claire (the princess) and Alison (the basket case). However, Alison and Claire both get together with Bender and Andy at the end, while Brian is left alone and single.
* Implied in ''DeadPoetsSociety'':

* ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' averts this. Aside from Sheldon justifying it with his {{Asexuality}}, no one else in the group is a virgin, even if Raj has trouble with women (as a result of a personality issue completely unrelated to being a nerd, and it didn't stop him from sleeping with at least two girls in the series). Played straighter with Amy.

* Similarly, ''[[Series/ThirtyRock 30 Rock]]''[='s=] Liz Lemon is not a virgin, but merely has a terrible sex life, partly due to her bad social skills and partly due to the fact that, aside from [[StraightMan Floyd]], all the men (and one woman) she has dated turned out to be either insane or wildly unsuitable in some way.

Added DiffLines:

*Suverted in ''Literature/ShoShanYLaDamaOscura''. Almost all of the adults on the book are nerds on their own way (Except Kadiri and her nuns, Sasuke, Placida and Kokoa) but it's implied that all of those nerds have also an active sex life.
