What is virginity?

A virgin is someone who’s never had sex. In some cases, people who’ve had anal sex say they’re virgins because they’ve not had vaginal sex, while some say as long as one has been involved in any form of sexual act they are no longer virgins. “Virginity” is debatable but one this to note is Virginity is not dependent on the hymen.

Does having a hymen mean you’re a virgin?

Some people believe that you’re not a virgin if your hymen is stretched open. But having a hymen and being a virgin are not the same thing.Some people are born with hymens that are naturally open.
