You must have heard several myths about what virginal girls look like or how they act. The only way to know for sure is to ask her. Not even an examination by a doctor can confirm if a girl has had sex. The same is true for guys. Surprised? Be ready to be shocked some more.
Despite the fact that her answer is the only way to know, there are still a lot of cultures that believe you can tell if a girl is a virgin. One myth is that if a girl’s hymen is intact she is still a virgin. The hymen is a thin mucous membrane of skin that surrounds or partially covers the opening to the vagina. During sexual intercourse the hymen can sometimes break and tear, causing some pain and light bleeding, but many girls don’t have this happen at all. The hymen can also break through a lot of other means, such as vigorous sports like bike riding or gymnastics, using tampons, or through growth and development of her body (reason a doctor’s examination may not always give the true situation!). Some girls never have their hymen break at all.
Here are some other myths about virginity:
- There is a certain age when girls should lose their virginity: This is not true to any extent. Some girls and guys don’t lose their virginity until they are well into their adulthood, while others have it happen earlier.
- A girl looks different after she has sex: Girls who are sexually active look exactly like girls who are virgins. There is no way to know by looking at her (i.e., her breasts don’t grow larger, she doesn’t walk any different, etc.).
- A girl who is a virgin is shy or a prude: Many guys and girls would be surprised at which people are virgins and which are not. Many girls who date a lot, have boyfriends and are known as flirts can still be virgins.
There goes the busting of the myths about girls and virginity, just thought you might like to know. So, be good boys and girls.
