* Main focus of "La Première fille" by French singer Georges Brassens. The narrator goes on to detail all the different girls it could have been, and all the different ways it could have happened, regardless of which he will always remember his First. This incidentally allows the narrator to imply [[TheCasanova a very rich]] sexual life on his part by enumerating random female names saying that they'll all be forgotten long before he forgets TheOne. Brassens uses the phrase "baptism of love" whih is exactly this trope, as well as SelfDeprecatingHumor about how awkward and nervous he was while trying to keep his cool which could imply this trope in retrospect.

Often a subtrope of the ComingOfAgeStory. Contrast with the CelibateHero theory, which says, "Real men can resist sex." Compare SexIsCool. Often found in the SexComedy. A subtrope of this trope is ProfessionalSexEd.

* In ''OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest'', although he has to be persuaded by others into doing it, [[spoiler: having sex is what gives Billy Bibbit the confidence to stand up to Nurse Ratched, and gets rid of his stutter into the bargain. Candy must be some lover.]]

* The ''{{Series/Firefly}}'' episode "Jaynestown" dances back and forth between playing this straight and [[SubvertedTrope 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 it's not clear how much was meant to be attributed to the sex and how much to Inara's pep-talks before and after.
** The son's remark "YOU wanted to make a man of me. I guess it worked," implies more that it was the pep talks, since the father's behavior clearly indicates that by "a man" he meant "the same downtrodden kid but now he's had sex".
*** Or it was referring to the fact that his actions directly contradicted his father's orders, and he was therefore standing up to "the man" himself.

* In ''Anime/TurnAGundam'', the protagonist and other children would celebrate a coming-of-age ceremony as per tradition: among other things, they would go to the top of a mountain, strip naked, and put leeches onto each others' backs to create marks. And do whatever else they want. Too bad an untimely attack ruined the ceremony, or it would've been...very...interesting.

* Rare female example in ''VideoGame/BaldursGateII'': if the player romances Aerie, she asks to sleep with the protagonist at the end of her romance arc to prove herself a woman rather than a girl. Accepting her offer leads to the ''bad'' ending of the romance-the good ending has the player teach Aerie the distinction between sex and love. The good ending leads to Aerie's continued romance arc in ''Throne of Bhaal'' where this trope is visited again as Aerie, very much in love, asks the protagonist to sleep with her again-not to become a woman, but because she loves the protagonist, and sleeping with her is the good path.

* ''Series/HarryEnfieldAndChums'' has a comically [[ExaggeratedTrope exaggerated]] example in the last regular episode, when Kevin the Teenager, an extreme stereotype of the horrible teenage boy, finally loses his virginity. The next morning he has been transformed into a charming, polite and helpful young man, to his parents' incredulous delight (and his friend Perry's disappointment). Though the transformation (but not the sex itself) was [[{{Retcon}} retconned]] in a subsequent Christmas special, turning out to have been just a beautiful dream of his mother's.
