Fox’s New Girl has been going to the flashback well with increasing regularity throughout this season, the show’s second. That’s not a bad thing: Fat Schmidt is wonderful, as is Puka Shell Necklace Nick Miller, who I’m guessing was really into Blues Traveler and thinks the Spin Doctors are underrated. Tonight’s episode continues the trend, with each of the characters, including Jess, Winston, and Cece, explaining how they lost their virginity.
In honor of “Virgins” — and the fantastic sounding web series, Losing Your Virginity With John Stamos (I wonder how Joey Gladstone lost his…?) — let’s look at how some of TV’s greatest characters had sex for the first time.
Ron Swanson and Tammy One (Parks and Recreation)
Tammy I has been with Ron his entire life. Literally. She delivered him as a baby, was one of his teachers, and even took his virginity. No wonder she feels so possessive towards her, i.e. threw acid at Tammy II.
Willow and Oz (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)
Angel(us) bedding Buffy in “Surprise” gets most of the attention, but another character lost their virginity in an equally important episode. “Graduation Day, Part I” has the Scooby Gang preparing to slay the mayor before he turns into a snake (it makes sense in context, kind of), and apparently “preparing” means Willow getting her freak on with Oz, a werewolf. Been there.
Rory and Dean (Gilmore Girls)
Ugh, DEAN. MARRIED DEAN. MARRIED TO LINDSAY DEAN. Just “nope” all around.
Cassie and Sid (Skins)
Gilly…? Skins is an entire show about teens having sex, for everyone except poor ol’ Sid. At least until he falls for Cassie, even though he’s really in love with Michelle, but actually REALLY loves Cassie. Sam’s gonna be pissed.
Seth and Summer (The O.C.)
Seth created a special mix for Summer that loops the “come on” ending of “Transatlanticism” endlessly. Incentive.
Jeff and ??? (Freaks and Geeks)
Like any sad former-hippie who’s now working as a guidance counselor, Jeff had sex for the first time in the back of a van on his way to Woodstock with some unknown woman. “Yeah…woman….*cranks “Truckin’”*
Donna and Eric (That ’70s Show)
It happened at a Midge and Bob’s second wedding, and it was awkward and not sexy at all. Sounds ’bout right.
