Virginity is a Myth

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.

Virgin Mary.  She gave birth vaginally to Jesus Christ, hence, we can safely assume that her hymen was no more. From Wikipedia.

Another Thing With Virgins

The best time for planning a book is while you’re doing the dishes. Agatha Christie

To paraphrase, “The best time for planning a blog post is while driving at 15 mph along EDSA during SM Megasale weekend.” – Anastasia Christina

Charrise is a virgin. That is not very difficult to understand given that Charrisse is also a nerd. Who loves Gloria Steinem.

She once asked Ana regarding the risk factors for staying untouched, untutored, innocent, un-fucked, as far as females are concerned.

Ana: There has been no formal study done on the subject, from what I know.

Charrise: Really? Well then, I’m fucked!

Ana: No, dear, you’re not. Otherwise, we won’t be having this conversation.

Charrise:  Ha ha, great joke!

Ana: (contrite) Sorry. (The truth is, this morning, Ana had an Aubrey-Plaza moment, albeit with someone named Christian, so she should be forgiven for being distracted.)

Charrise: Ana, really! I think I will die like – you know – this!

Ana: Say the word, darling. You’ll feel better.

Charrise: I can’t. It sounds sooo … dirty, you know?

Ana: I know what you mean. Everybody just get their kicks out of making fun of them.

Charrise: Yes. Just what is so wrong with being …

Ana: … untouched, untutored, innocent, un-fucked?

Charrise: See, even you can’t say the word.

Ana: Of course I can. Virgin. There.

Charrise: (wails) That’s because you’ve had sex!

Ana: Oh Charrise, what can I say? This guy told me once that really, men do pretend that virgins don’t matter. But the truth is, nobody, not even men, can resist having something that is shiny and new.
