* ''Literature/{{Dracula}}'': Jonathan Harker. It doesn't help that every time he ''does'' get a chance to hop in bed with his wife, a certain somebody tends to interrupt. With blood-drinking.
** Lucy Westenra even moreso. The only character who is explicitly not a virgin, in fact, is Abraham Van Helsing, the OmnidisciplinaryScientist [[TheMentor Mentor]] [[TheSmartGuy Smart Guy]]. Subverted by the fact that, after Van Helsing, the second-most-competent person around seems to be Mina Harker, who is almost certainly a virgin (although Dracula does symbolically rape her at one point...)

Added DiffLines:

* This trope is reversed in real life, as research points to people with higher education losing their virginity later in life. Considering that someone who ''is'' able to spot TheCasanova 's intentions from miles away will ''not'' lose her virginity to him, but wait for someone more worthy, remaining a virgin in the meantime, this makes rather more sense.

* MK did a multi-part series about fan wishes - not requests of him specifically, just things his fanbase wanted for themselves in general. One posted a comment on one of his previous episodes wishing he (the fan) could have mind-blowing sex that resulted in so many bodily fluids it would [[{{Squick}} coat the walls]]. MK's only response: [[DeadpanSnarker "Virgin."]]

* In many conservative regions, teenagers (especially girls) are often encouraged by their schools and churches to take "virginity pledges" promising not to have sex until they're married. However, many teens [[note]]And, seemingly, [[UsefulNotes/BillClinton one recent U.S. President]] (in his case based on [[RulesLawyer then-current definition of "sex" in the [[UsefulNotes/AmericanCourts federal law]]]])[[/note]] interpret this to mean that penis-in-vagina intercourse is the ''only'' thing [[TechnicalVirgin that counts as sex]], meaning they proceed to have oral and anal intercourse with no protection because in their minds, it isn't sex if there's no chance of pregnancy (and thus they're still "virgins"). The transmission of STD's would suggest otherwise.

This trope is the reverse of the virgin as portrayed in classical literature. In ancient myths, virgins were often dedicated to some higher purpose. They were supposed to be above such things as lust and passion, upheld as an example that people should strive to follow… and if they fell from this pedestal, boy, did they fall hard. Just ask [[ClassicalMythology the goddess Artemis' attendants]]; if they gave in to the pleasures of the flesh, there was a world of hurt in store when the Boss Lady found out.
