The most common myths about losing virginity
“Plucking the cherry” is what is popularly called the concept of virginity. However, you will be surprised to learn that there is really no real or even metaphorical cherry to lose. The concept of virginity is based solely on and supported by careful deception. It is one of the best-selling, most overrated, and most uneducated concepts we have created as a society. This is unconvincing and completely pointless.
This is a myth that has long been spread by our ancestors, who somehow thought that keeping girls and boys in the dark about sexuality was good for them. But alas! As we moved towards social evolution, it became normal for men not to be virgins, and the burden of responsibility fell on women. And because of that, we now tell our daughters to take care of their virginity so they can marry the right man.
We’re here to tell you that everything you’ve been told about virginity is a complete lie. This is heresy, carefully crafted by the community without any medical support. Therefore, let’s together destroy the myths that we are so conveniently used to feeding.
The term “virgin” refers to women who initially abstained from any sexual relationship. Virginity is a condition of a person who has never had sexual intercourse. The hymen is a thin piece of mucous membrane that surrounds or partially covers the external vaginal opening. It is a thin, fleshy tissue that sits in the opening of your vagina.
Myth number 1. An intact hymen means you’re a virgin
The hymen is nothing more than a thin membrane that is present when the vagina is opened. Scientifically, this in no way means a woman’s virginity. Because there are many reasons that can lead to bleeding in the hymen, such as cycling, horse riding, gymnastics and more. In addition, there is a possibility that the woman does not even have it initially.
Myth number 2. Loss of virginity makes your vagina free
Under no circumstances should you believe that losing your virginity will make your vagina look like a huge bucket. No, it’s not so! In fact, even after years of sex, your vagina will not be free at all. The only thing that can change this is aging and natural childbirth.
Myth number 3. You can only lose your alleged virginity once.
First, the very concept of losing virginity is flawed in every possible way. Second, no one but you can decide when you really “lost” her. A simple violation of the hymen means nothing.
Myth number 4. If you use a tampon, you are not a virgin.
Inserting a tampon into your vagina does not in any way mean that you have lost your virginity. The tampon stops and collects your menstrual blood to help you cope with critical days. It is by no means an object of pleasure at all.
Myth number 5. If you masturbate, you are not a virgin
Masturbation is the act of pleasing yourself and satisfying your own sexual needs. If you masturbate, do it more often. Because we are convinced that this does not deprive you of your “virginity.” But it really brings insane satisfaction.
Myth number 6. Sex within marriage is the right way to lose “her”
Now this is another big fat lie that almost everyone spoon-feeds us with. Marriage or not, but in order to have sex, you need to feel comfortable with that person and with yourself. Because otherwise, you won’t enjoy it in the least bit. All types of sex are good for your health as long as you are happy with them.
Myth number 7. You will bleed and sex will be painful the first time.
This is absolutely not true. Gender determination varies from person to person and from couple to couple. You may or may not bleed. Whatever it is, rest assured it doesn’t define anything. Every body is different, and while some women have a lot of blood on their first try, some don’t have it at all. When it comes to pain, it all depends on your partner. A ruptured hymen isn’t the only reason that can cause you to bleed and make you feel uncomfortable.
Myth number 8. Gynecological Examination May Affect Your Virginity
This is a pure lie. A gynecological exam is all about health, not sex. Examination of the external genital organs will help avoid infections and other problems with the genitals. This examination is usually done with a speculum, which pushes the walls of the hymen or vagina apart and does not affect your virginity at all.
Myth # 9. Virginity makes you more attractive.
First, attractive to whom? You are on your own, and if someone does not like your sexual status, you can permanently remove it from your life. You have the right to decide when and how to lose the “secret”. We have already written about this on our website. Virginity does not make a person pure, and its absence also does not make you unclean.
Myth number 10. Loss of virginity leads to a change in consciousness
Another “hyped” myth. Many people think that after the first time, the girls’ attitude completely changes. They start to feel differently and their life changes 180 degrees. Indeed, for some, the loss of virginity can be a serious life stage that will lead not only to physiological changes. But in modern society, for many young women, sex does not represent a special responsibility, even the first one.
Most importantly, your body is yours and you can do whatever you want with it. Don’t fall prey to these fictional myths about sex and virginity. Just practice safe sex, protect yourself and monitor your health, for example, using a women’s calendar.
