  1. Ehsan Sehgal:

    Virginity, regardless of its others' contexts and conceptions, only applies to the women, not to the men. The sexual experience does not verify or endorses the virginity in a case of the same-sex or the sex that does not tear the hymen. If the hymen stays safe, even after the sexual experience, the female is still the virgin. The hymen holds only the women, not the men. The Male remains his entire life a virgin with the sexual experience, or without that.
