* With the exception of Harry, this occurs to the aliens on ''[[ThirdRockFromTheSun 3rd Rock From The Sun]]''. Harry was implied to have had sex in an early episode and it was presented as a joke that someone that clueless actually "got some", but the other three Solomons lost their virginity with great fanfare.

* Sid of ''{{Skins}}'' is under pressure from his best friend Tony to lose his virginity, as Tony is embarassed to be friends with a virgin. JJ in the third season is also miserable about being a virgin, especially when his two best friends manage to be very sexually successful, but eventually his lesbian friend Emily sleeps with him out of pity.

* All over the place in ''RevolutionaryGirlUtena'', as the difficulty and implications of growing up are one of its main themes. It's best exemplified in Akio, who represents the corruption of the adult world, who by the end of the series is basically a SexGod, and who repeatedly tempts the duelists by giving them a vision of 'something eternal' by taking them a drive in his car in sequences heavily suggestive that he's having sex with them. It's also possibly the reason behind the incestuous themes, exploring the tension between characters wanting to return to their carefree childhoods with their siblings but increasingly unable to access that world except through 'adult' means.

** Not only that, this was actually quite common in Western Europe until *TheTwentiethCentury*. There was also less real stigmatization of prostitutes themselves, added to the fact that wives were [[DoubleStandard expected to stay virgins until marriage]] while husbands were supposed to... be more knowledgeable by that point. It still happens, although it's for the most part a DiscreditedTrope. Still somewhat accepted in [[ValuesDissonance other parts of the world]] for much the same reason.

cleaned up some clunky language and repetition
Given that AManIsNotAVirgin, a leading man who has no sexual experience will be mortally embarrassed about the fact and feel the need to get de-flowered as soon as possible. The plot generally follows his attempts to meet Girls and get them into bed so he can win his place among his fellow Men. This is almost always a comedy plot (usually a comedy film), so his attempts are inept or nerdish and HilarityEnsues. Conventionally the hero is successful, thus proving his masculinity and reassuring the insecure male virgins in the audience that they, too, will someday be Men. AnAesop about love being more important than sex will then be shoehorned in, and the hero will settle down with a nice girl -- quite possibly the UnluckyChildhoodFriend he completely ignored in his quest to 'get some.' Whether this happy ending satisfies the MoralGuardians varies; the wholesome 10% may shed some sanctity on the rest, but that's not what the audience is paying to see. They're there to enjoy the titillating adventures of a protagonist who wants only to get laid. If the movie was made after 2000 then there will invariably be an UnratedEdition DVD promising even more titillating moments. This trope could have originated from such [[TruthInTelevision warped standards in the real world]], or contributed to those standards; probably, both.
