* In Tyrion Lannister's backstory in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', he loses his virginity to a crofter's daughter who he ends up marrying shortly after, only for his brother Jaime to reveal to him that she was a whore whom Jaime had paid to give him his first experience in an elaborately-crafted setup. [[spoiler:Eventually, it turns out that this isn't quite what happened.]]
** That last spoiler makes the example a subversion combined with in-universe FridgeHorror. It would serve as a MoralEventHorizon for Tywin on its own, if Tywin hadn't many times before then. Also turns out to be Tyrion's BerserkButton.

* A traditional among the nobility and upper classes in ''Literature/KushielsLegacy'' is to celebrate their sixteenth birthday and entering adult society by a visit to the Court of Night Blooming Flowers.

Princess Sidonie even has Amarante, the daughter of a priestess of Namaah aka basically-the-goddess-of-sex-among-other-things, as one of her ladies in waiting (and to teach her 'the arts of the bedchamber').

** When Phèdre and Alcuin are training to be courtesans, Cecilie Laveau-Perrin is hired to be their tutor. But subverted, as--to Phèdre's surprise--Cecilie's teaching is confined to the classroom and books. She teaches them what to do, to be sure, but she doesn't ''show'' them.

* The ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' episode "[[Recap/FireflyE07Jaynestown Jaynestown]]" dances back and forth between playing this straight and subverting it. Inara, the show's HookerWithAHeartOfGold, is hired by a rich snob to "make his son a man". The son has much more confidence afterwards, but this may have had as much to do with Inara's pep-talks before and after as with the actual sex.

* On the HBO series ''Series/{{Rome}}'', Atia hires war-hero Titus Pullo to make her son Octavian (the future Emperor Augustus) into a man. Naturally, one of Pullo's efforts is to take young Octavian to a Roman whorehouse. Octavian is fifteen or sixteen when this is going on, going by the relative ages of characters and historic actions that are occurring. By Roman standards, he was about to ''legally'' become a man, and Atia wanted him to learn all the appropriate Roman male behaviors, including 'penetrating someone.'

It's understandably presented as somewhat of a frightening ordeal, considering the boy is only about ''twelve'' when this happens. He also fantasizes about Malena herself replacing the prostitute.
