Playing With / Defiled Forever

Go To

Basic Trope: A character who has sex is considered finished and no longer desirable.

  • Straight:
    • Alice has sex with Carol and Bob is no longer interested in her.
    • Alice dumps her boyfriend Bob because he had sex with Diana.
  • Exaggerated: Because Alice loses her virginity from being raped, Bob has her publicly executed.
  • Downplayed: Slut-Shaming.
  • Justified:
  • Inverted:
  • Subverted: Bob comes from a conservative family valuing virginity, but when Alice reveals that she had sex with Carol, Bob was okay with it.
  • Double Subverted: But only because he thinks lesbian sex isn't really sex, and when he finds out that Alice also had sex with Dave, he immediately dumps her.
  • Parodied:
    • Alice's skirt is blown up, and she runs away in shame, shouting "I can no longer be a bride!"
    • Bob sneers at Alice for 'letting' her skirt be blown up and tempting him. Alice tells him he's the one who stared at it with a massive bulge in his pants. Bob realises this and runs away in shame, shouting "I can no longer be a groom!"
  • Zig Zagged:
    • Alice is raped just days before her wedding. Bob still loves Alice, and still decides to go through with the marriage. Then people start talking, and Bob breaks up with Alice. Then he feels bad about it, and apologizes to Alice and the wedding is on again.
    • Bob has absolutely no intention of breaking up with Alice but is confused about how to help her. Alice mistakes that for lack of love and breaks up. Bob pleads with Alice and Alice realizes he really does love her. Together they work through it.
  • Advertisement:
  • Averted: Alice's virginity is not a factor in whether or not Bob loves or marries her.
  • Enforced:
  • Lampshaded: "Sorry Alice but I can no longer be with you. You're a disgusting slut now, and I refuse to marry a slut".
  • Invoked: Alice wants to break up with conservative Bob, but is afraid to break his heart by dumping him. So she sleeps with another guy or fakes her own rape so that he'd dump her instead.
  • Exploited: Alice is aware that no men want a "defiled" woman, so she proceeds to tell off her potential suitors that she's not a virgin as an excuse to drive them off.
  • Defied: Alice looks for men who do not care for her virginity to marry.
  • Discussed: "Why did you break up with Alice? Did she lose her virginity to someone else?" "No, we've grown apart. That's all."
  • Conversed: "Oh, so just because Alice isn't a virgin anymore, she's trash?!" "That made more sense back in the Stone Age, but today it's just misogyny."
  • Implied: Alice kept her prostitution affair hidden from her family. Tightly.
  • Deconstructed: It's not that Bob wants to have sex with Diana in the first place. He was drugged by her. But even so, Bob was treated as if he's a cheater and got dumped by Alice and abandoned by his family.
  • Reconstructed: It's probably for the best that Bob was left out with ignorant people. He later met with an open-minded Evelyn and had a better relationship, while Alice's own ignorance led to her downfall.
  • Played For Laughs: Alice thinks she's been defiled forever from something utterly innocuous, like a handshake from a guy or being seen in a bikini.
  • Played For Drama: Bob was drugged and raped by Diana and had to keep it a secret from everyone, including his girlfriend Alice.

OMG, that woman's lost her virginity!!! That must mean she's a whore!!!! She's Defiled Forever!!!!!!

How well does it match the trope?
