comment Is チェリーボーイ wasei-eigo?
The term "チェリーボーイ" is one that sometimes get mentioned in lists of "interesting" katakana expressions - I wouldn't be surprised if it's one of those 日本人の知らない日本語 that Japanese-learners are more familiar with than native Japanese speakers.

As background, Online Etymology Dictionary mentions that the use of "cherry" to refer to virginity in English dates back to 1889.
