Being a female virgin can be a huge turn-on for some men that they would want their future partners to be someone who hasn’t done the deed yet. For some, ending up with someone who’s still a virgin feels like winning a lottery ticket. But the thing is, no one can really tell if a woman is still a virgin or not just by looking at her.
They say the only way to know if you’re dating a virgin is to see if she bleeds the first time you have sex. That has been the mindset of people for many years but one doctor wants to bust the myth about female virginity.
Bleeding after having sex for the first time doesn’t determine a woman’s virginity.
There is a need to understand about the female hymen to bust the myth.
The hymen is a membrane that covers the vaginal opening.
Relationship and marriage therapist Dr. Oyebade Obalola Jerry writes in a lengthy Facebook post, hoping to provide some education about female virginity, particularly involving the hymen. According to Dr. Jerry, a good understanding of the hymen should put an end to the myth that virgin girls bleed after their first-time sex.
The state of a woman’s hymen doesn’t say anything about her sexual activity.
The hymen wears away with age.
Activities like biking, exercising and horseback riding can also wear away the hymen.
Some women don’t bleed after doing the deed for the first time but that doesn’t mean she’s instantly no longer a virgin. Not all women have hymen as some are born without it. For those who do, the case can vary. The types of hymen can differ from one woman to another, in which some can have thick hymens while others have thin ones.
In 1998, an informal study published in the British Medical Journal and led by Dr. Sara Patterson-Brown found that 63% of women who had sex for the first time reported the absence of bleeding. As Dr. Jerry continued to explain, women who bleed during sex are those that had rough sex partners.
For instance, if the guy forces the girl to have sex with him and penetrates her when she’s not ready, it would likely cause injury to the girl. Bleeding after sex the first time is most likely the result of an injury and not because of a “broken” hymen.
That said, Dr. Jerry intends to let people know the importance of learming more about the hymen because women are being hurt or criticized for not bleeding after sex the first time. There are cases in which women are being divorced or even physically abused because their spouses think they are a disgrace just because they didn’t have “virgin bleeding.” The most important takeaway is that you can’t be “virgin detectives” since there is no way one can assess if a woman is still a virgin or not.
Take these wise words from Scarleteen:
There is NO physical way to determine if someone is a virgin, because virginity is an idea, not a medical or physical condition.

Fly’s ‘Zombie’ Head Infected With Deadly Fungus Will Give You The Creeps
Apparently, the virus takes over the victims’ bodies and controls their behavior.
When we think of zombies, images of the undead immediately pop up on our minds – like those ones from Walking Dead and Game of Thrones! We rarely think of animals or even insects, for that matter, but that’s exactly what we get in the photo below.
The said photo, taken in a Singaporean forest, has immediately went viral on social media because it’s “really freaky”, according to several netizens. It shows us the image of a ‘zombie’ fly head after it’s been infected with a lethal parasitic fungus.
Fungal stalks are bursting from this dead fly and its creeping people out.
According to photographer Faiz Bustamente, the Cordyceps parasite may have infected the fly before it died. The parasite “takes over its victims' bodies like a horror movie zombie virus,” wrote the Daily Mail....
Belgian Artist Gets Stuck Chained To a Marble Block , Rescued 19 Days After
The artist does not see this as a failure.
Belgian artist Mikes Poppe initially planned to free himself from the chains attached to a giant block of marble - a feat that was supposed to show people the “burden of history” that artists cannot get away from. However, his plan somehow "failed" as Poppe had to be rescued and cut loose after 19 days.
Poppe had to endure 438 hours of the performance. He slept, ate, washed and drew while he was chained. He’d worked to chisel himself free from the stone but eventually, he realized “it’s not possible.”
Poppe’s performance was part of a live-streamed art exhibition, titled De Profundis.
His leg was attached to the chain buried in the three-ton block of marble in the Ostend courthouse.
