    In That70s Show when Donna lost her virginity she imagined "I had sex" was written on her forehead (this was shown so the audience could see it, too).

    See Did You Just Have Sex.

    Do we have a trope for the "check the bed sheet the next morning for blood" thing? Some cultures actually demand that the bloody bedsheet be displayed the morning after the wedding to "prove" the virginity of the woman.

    "If a man takes a wife and, after lying with her, dislikes her and slanders her and gives her a bad name, saying, "I married this woman, but when I approached her, I did not find proof of her virginity," then the girl's father and mother shall bring proof that she was a virgin to the town elders at the gate. The girl's father will say to the elders, "I gave my daughter in marriage to this man, but he dislikes her. Now he has slandered her and said, 'I did not find your daughter to be a virgin.' But here is the proof of my daughter's virginity." Then her parents shall display the cloth before the elders of the town, and the elders shall take the man and punish him.

    IIRC, Loveless has the kitty ears that disappear when they lose their virginity.

    @Superior: That's referring to blood on the bedsheets. It's not something she wears.

    • The song in Pod People has an audio technician wearing a shirt that reads "I'm a Virgin".
      • Parodied in the MST3K bit from the same episode, where TV's Frank wears a similar shirt.

    Oh, that video for "Everyone's Had More Sex Than Me" with everyone's number of sexual partners written on their shirts. And yep, there's one poor fellow with a "0" on there.

    you mean the one by TISM? Everyone Else Has Had More Sex Than Me. Hell of an awkward title, but it works somehow

    In The Bell Jar, Esther imagines that there are only two kinds of people in the world, people who have had sex, and those who haven't.
