Can someone really be a ‘born-again virgin?’ by L. Borreli
I do not support the term or concept of “born again virginity” as I’ve explained in a few previous posts, such as (Link): this one, so I shall not belabor that point here.
(Link): Can Someone Really Be a ‘Born-Again Virgin?’ by L. Borreli via Medical Daily
- Is it really possible to become a “born-again virgin” through spiritual and surgical routes?
- The Social Construct of Virginity
- The (Link): social construct of virginity will most likely not disappear. People define virginity by what it means to them and what works in accordance to their morals and values. However, the most common definition of virginity for heterosexual women is whether they have had penile-vaginal intercourse.
- According to (Link): The Kinsey Institute: “Losing one’s virginity is a physical act, whether or not a woman notices any blood from her vagina. The reason why some women bleed when they first have sex is because a thin layer of tissue called the hymen covers part of a woman’s vaginal entrance.”
- It is believed when a woman has sex, the hymen tears and she may begin to bleed a bit. However, some women don’t have much of this tissue to begin with, or have tissue that has been torn from using tampons, from masturbation, or from being fingered by a partner. This is why looking for blood on the sheet or going to the doctor is a poor way of determining whether or not a woman is a virgin.
- Born-Again Virgin: What Is It?
- According to Dictionary.com:
- “Revirginzation is the process of a sexually active person attempting to regain virgin status by abstaining from sexual relations, esp. during the time just before marriage; also called secondary virginity, revirgination.”
- UrbanDictionary defines being a born-again virgin like this:
- “More than a year between sexual relations, with anyone else.”
- But, how did this label come to be?
- The concept of born-again virginity started to be embraced in the 1990s and early 2000s as abstinence education took root in public schools.
