* In the ''Literature/BlackCompany'' short story ''Tides Elba'', the city's religion the company is stationed in includes that women permanently shave off all the hair below their neckline after losing their virginity. The Black Company being a mercenary outfit full of men with too much time on their hands, this gets discussed at length.

* ''Literature/SongAtDawn'' It is customary for a bride to wear her hair up after consumating her marriage (i.e. lossing her virginity.) [[spoiler: Estela doesn't do it after her marriage because John isn't interested in doing it with her. Instead, she does it after a traumatic experience with a stable hand that she doesn't want to admit to herself was a mistake.]]

* In the fourth series of ''Series/{{Misfits}}'', there's a minor character who has the power to make the number of sexual partners a person has had appear on that person's forehead. How the power defines sex for this purpose is not specified. Judging from the effect on characters with known sexual histories, receiving oral sex apparently doesn't count.
* ''Series/AdamRuinsEverything'' [[AvertedTrope averts]] this, with Emily explaning in one episode that female physical virginity is effectively non-existant, as the hymen can be torn any number of ways, and it is not uncommon for it to heal.

Compare DidYouJustHaveSex, NerdsAreVirgins (nerdiness as a Virginity Flag), SexDressed, VirginityMakesYouStupid, VirginPower, VirginVision (the unjustified form of this). Sometimes, this can be faked with a ConsummationCounterfeit, as when the {{MacGuffin}} is a bloodstain on the sheets.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/TheRedTent'', it's mentioned that among the Canaanite wives that Jacob's sons took, the morning after the wedding night, the mother of the bride would run into the tent and steal the bloodstained blanket [[note]] We now know that neither blood from a broken hymen nor a "tight" sensation are reliable proof of virginity, but this story is set in the Bronze Age. [[/note]], to save just in case Jacob wanted "proof" that the bride was a virgin (and therefore that he had paid a fair price for her). The women of Padan-Aram think this is {{Squick}}, and their [[SexAsRiteOfPassage Ritual of Opening]] is designed to make it so that there won't be a bloodstain so no one will know whether they're virgins or not and judge their worth by that.

* In MercedesLackey's ''TalesOfTheFiveHundredKingdoms'', unicorns act as living 'virgin detectors.' Beautiful, beautiful, brainless virgin detectors... This can cause some [[HilarityEnsues issues]] when one does not want their virginity (or gender for that matter) known.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Hellsing}}: Played with. When a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire]] fatally drains an opposite-sex human and that human is a virgin, s/he also becomes a vampire. If not, s/he becomes a [[OurGhoulsAreCreepier ghoul]]. While this makes it easy to tell which opposite-sex victims were virgins or not after the fact, most vampires can't tell which humans are virgins or not before they drink. This leads to some vampires who don't want to sire children (like the {{starter villain}}) [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil personally ensuring that their meal is a non-virgin]] before drinking.
