A plot in which a man usually who has no sexual experience will be mortally embarrassed about the fact and feel the need to get de-flowered as soon as possible. The plot follows his attempts to meet girls and get them into bed so he won't be harassed like hell in college. This is almost always a comedy plot, so his attempts are inept or nerdish and Hilarity Ensues. Sometimes the person is a lady, and the motivation is usually other than embarrassment from lack of experience. Conventionally the hero is successful, thus finally experienced and reassuring the insecure male virgins in the audience that they, too, will someday get laid. An Aesop about love being more important than sex will then be shoehorned in, and the hero will settle down with a nice girl — quite possibly the unlucky childhood friend he completely ignored in his quest to "get some".

The girls were accompanied by older women from their village in Chiradzulu district, near the border with Mozambique.
First Rites are a rite of passage in most Cro-Magnon cultures, in which adolescent girls are ritually deflowered. After this, they are considered women and are allowed full status as adult members of their tribe, including being allowed to take a mate. This comes from a shared cultural value that young people must be taught about "The Mother's Gift of Pleasure", or sex.
