Virgins is a collective term commonly associated with people who maintain activities that appear highly time-consuming or may be deemed unattractive by the opposite sex, resulting in the assumption that those individuals have no sexual experience. Although the term is at times used as a form of self-parody, its main usage lies with mocking specific groups of people for their looks or hobbies.
During the course of the 20th century, specific activities like playing video games, reading comic books or being active on the internet were most commonly associated in a negative fashion with the nerd stereotype. Maintainers of these hobbies were commonly depicted and generalized as being rather unattractive due to their looks, clothing and body type. This in turn generated the general assumption that they were not deemed attractive by the opposite sex, resulting in the assumption of them having no significant other and still being a virgin even at a higher age.
Involuntary Abstinence is a concept of Internet humor typically iterated in image macros poking fun at male-oriented hobbies and activities that may be deemed unattractive by the other sex. The captions in these image macros commonly imply that the males shown maintain those hobbies for the sole sake of staying a virgin and protecting it.
