I did say that I am going to write a post about the V-word.
So here it is.
Virginity – a state of a person who has never engaged in sexual intercourse (Wikipedia)
Myth – traditional story of ostensibly historical events (Merriam-Webster Dictionary)
I have been recently reading a very hot account of a certain self-described libertine’s experience of having sex with a girl who claimed to be a virgin.
And then I read a blog decrying Miley Cyrus’s gyrations during the MTV Awards. Miley Cyrus was once a virgin too, you know. Oh I’m sorry — at 20 y/o she’s still a virgin technically?
And then my friend Ana declares: Sex seemed to be a lot hotter than it can actually be as I imagined it when I was a virgin.
“Maternity is a matter of fact; paternity is a matter of speculation” — where did I read that?
In any case, I would like to add: Virginity is a matter of speculation.
For only the person who owns his/her body can definitively know if he/she is a virgin (or not).
Yes people, there is such a thing as hymen. But please, believe me when I say hymens can be tricky. And they are in no way evidence of one’s lack (or possession) of sexual experience.
Coitus is the operative word for penis-inside-vagina. And technically speaking (at least, as per current general population’s most popular belief) — as far as females are concerned, a virgin is a virgin if penis-in-vagina has never happened. I have no idea what the definition of virginity is in guys.
If a time machine transports the Virgin Mary and Joan of Arc during present era, I wonder what their opinion will be regarding people’s opinion of their virginities.
