Myths about virginity tests

1. Hymen
Many people believe that virginity can be seen from whether a person's hymen is still intact. This is why people believe tests to test for virginity are possible and necessary. In fact, the hymen can not be used as a measure of virginity.


The hymen is a thin, flexible layer that protects the vaginal opening from the inside. This layer has various forms. Most hymen have a hole in the middle. This allows the discharge of blood during menstruation. However, there are also women whose hymen only have a very small hole so they are prone to tearing. This hymen can tear at any time, for example when exercising, riding a bicycle, dancing, falling, having sex, and many other possibilities. Having sex is not the only reason a woman's hymen is torn. Women who have had sex may have their hymen intact. This is because some women have a very strong hymen or the opening is large enough for the penis to enter without tearing the lining. Tampons can also enter the vagina without damaging the hymen.

Because every woman has a hymen of a different nature and shape, there is no particular way to test a woman's virginity just by looking at her hymen. A torn hymen is usually characterized by cracked, cracked skin around the vaginal opening without a membrane. However, just like injuring any skin surface on your body, tearing the hymen before sex is normal and nothing to worry about. A torn hymen also has no effect on a person's general and sexual health. 2. Vaginal bleeding
This myth stems from a similar belief, namely that virginity can be tested by looking at the hymen. One of the symptoms of a torn hymen is bleeding in the vaginal area. So, people come to believe that every woman should experience bleeding on her first sex. In fact, a torn hymen does not always cause bleeding. Or sometimes the bleeding that occurs is so light that it is not noticed at all. Remember, some women have a hymen that is so thin that the damage isn't so severe that it causes bleeding. Meanwhile, there is a thick hymen so that damage can cause bleeding. Therefore, it is not true that a person who is still a virgin will experience bleeding when he first has sex.

3. Female sexual arousal
If a woman experiences orgasm, vaginal wetness, or excitement the first time she has sex, it doesn't mean she's "experienced" or has had sex before. The myth that women who are passionate or reach orgasm the first time they have sex are not virgins depart from traditional beliefs. It is taboo in society for a woman to have sexual arousal when she is a virgin. A woman should not know or enjoy sex like a man. This is of course a big mistake. Everyone, be it a woman or a man, has the same awareness and sexual arousal. This sexual awareness can begin at any age. There is a sexual awareness that appears during puberty, but there is also a new emerging in adulthood. Even some people already have sexual arousal at elementary school age. Having extensive sexual knowledge also does not mean someone is not a virgin. However, so far society is often mistaken and gives a negative label on women who do not cover up their sexuality. So, don't be mistaken and think that a woman's sexual arousal is something that should be covered up because it can be used to test her virginity. Only the woman herself can interpret and confirm her virginity.
