Concept of Virginity

Leave a comment

I never realized that there is not an actual definition for virginity. Being a woman, we are always taught that losing your virginity is a very big deal. Everyone says that it is a life changing moment and it may even be described as when you become a woman. But what is virginity? Apparently no one actually knows. Why do women have such a weight placed on their virginity when men do not? The article we read about virginity really opened my eyes to the fact that no one really agrees about what virginity actually is. Virginity is more of a cultural concept rather than a medically defined word.
