Storyline

Robin is about ready to say "I love you" to Ted - the first time she would have said it to any man - but it just won't come out. These feeling coincide with a visit to New York by Robin's seventeen year old baby sister, Katie Scherbatsky. Katie doesn't arrive alone, but with her two month boyfriend, Kyle, who is also visiting family in New York. Katie plans on losing her virginity to Kyle on this trip, something that Robin tries her hardest to talk her out of. Robin requests her friends' help in convincing Katie not to lose it to Kyle, but to wait for someone special. This request makes everyone discuss their first time, which brings up some controversy between Marshall and Lily based on Robin's first time. And Barney's first time comes straight out of a movie... or several movies. Written by Huggo

First Time in New York (#2.12)
13 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Robin's sister comes to lose her virginity in NYC. And she tries with all her friends to convince her not to do it. The episode is less fun than the show usually is. Especially when one thinks how patronizing they are towards this girl, doubt it would happen if this was a brother. Didn't expect it from Robin.

It is fun though to see how others lost their virginity. The controversy of Lily and Marshall is very fun and interesting. I would say she is right, it doesn't count, just like Marshall noticed it later. And Ted's was also well done, great to see them switch gender role instead of making it typical. And wow, Barney's virginity loss was not all that glamorous, also reminds us he was very different in his younger 20's
