* ''Happy Birthday'' by Gary Glitter. "Then I am gonna do, things to you, I've never done before! When you're old enough, ha, I do my stuff, till you beg for more!" Becomes a lot harder to listen to when you learn what Glitter got arrested for...

* The short story ''[[TheDresdenFiles Bombshells]]'' has a protagonist [[note]]Molly Carpenter[[/note]] who invoked this on herself. After the man she confessed to rejected her on the basis that she was underage, she decided to wait. Not give up on the idea- just wait several years.

* In one episode of ''Series/{{Castle}},'' the eponymous character makes the paper as one of New York's most eligible bachelors. Not only does basically every woman they meet in the episode feel the need to comment on it, but his teenage daughter comes home with several requests. After she mentions one elderly teacher- "Too old?"- she mentions that one of her classmates is also interested, and ''she'll'' be eighteen in a few months. Castle isn't interested though.

* Interestingly {{invoked|Trope}} in ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDxD'', where Issei instates this for Koneko. While Koneko is already well over the age of consent[[note]]The timeline's blurry, but it's probably she's well into her triple digits[[/note]], physically she's still an underclassman, yet also already fertile. A pregnancy would be disastrous, and [[ChivalrousPervert Issei]] doesn't want to risk it any more than she does.

* The Romeo and Juliet laws are specifically used in order to help teenagers not be persecuted if they break this trope. For instance, if a teenage guy at 17 and a teenage girl at 16 start a sexual relationship theoretically he could be accused of statutory rape when he turns 18 (or reaches whatever the area's age of consent is), despite the small age difference. The laws help act as a defense against teenagers who are accused of statutory rape (often by disapproving parents).
