There is no clear parallel to the notion of a virgin birth in pagan literature, only of births resulting from intercourse between God and a woman (of which there is no suggestion in Matthew and Luke), resulting in a being half-divine, half-human (which is far different from biblical Christology).

John Frame, quoted in Jesus in An Age of Controversy by Douglas Groothuis, p. 218
