Note that applying this trope in RealLife is a very bad idea as it gives the message to teenagers that they don't get to control who's allowed to be intimate with them or have any agency over their own lives and other people are allowed make the decision for them -- which often leads to them becoming involved in abusive relationships once they do finally get out from under their parent's immediate control.

-->'''Emma:''' Okay, Killian. We should get out of here before David decides to give you his Overprotective Dad Speech.\\
'''Hook:''' Well, you can spare yourself the trouble, mate. I assure you your daughter couldn't be in better hands.

* Simon B. Cotter has a bit where he talks about the DoubleStandard, saying that if he had a teenage son who came home late from a date with a girl, he'd still punish him and lecture him for it, but secretly he'd be proud of him, and the next day he would brag to all his friends that his kid got laid. However, since he has a daughter instead, he plans on having this conversation with her when she becomes a teenager:
-->'''Cotter:''' Honey... sex ''hurts''. In fact, if you do it before you're 25... you could ''die''. I know because [[WouldHitAGirl I'll kill you]].

* Discussed in ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} story ''Fanfic/HellsisterTrilogy'' when Kara wants her boyfriend Dev-Em to meet her adoptive parents, and Dev argues her birth or adoptive parents will murder him. Despite his fears, Fred and Edna Danvers resign themselves to the fact their daughter is dating someone they don't approve of (Superman got into a fact with Dev, nonetheless).
-->'''Kara:''' So I want to show them the nice young man who picked me up in the 30th Century. Just be as charming as you are to me, and you'll do just fine. I mean it, Dev. I want you to come home with me. Just for the week.\\
'''Dev:''' Kara, darling. Listen. Do you think your parents are going to be really enthused about us sharing what I'm about to get out of? Marriage, yes. Parents are overjoyed to hear that their daughters are getting married. But living together? That means you're despoiling their little darling. They come after you with Kryptonite and chains from Daxam.

* In ''Film/FiftyFirstDates'', when Henry tries to get close to Lucy, her father and brother naturally assume he just wants to have consequence-free sex with her, possibly even multiple times, given her LaserGuidedAmnesia. This is justified, given Henry's reputation as TheCasanova, and the fact that it's extremely difficult to have a relationship with a woman, who forgets all about it the following morning. However, this is subverted later, when Lucy's father actually starts to try to get them together.
