Pause whatever it is that you are doing and imagine a world where “virginity” does not exist. Yes, go on and imagine what life would be like if hymens weren't supposed to tear the first time you had sex, and you didn’t have to "lose" your virginity to never be, um, restored again. Sounds like a fantasy, doesn’t it?
Well, it’s not. You and I, and women all over the world, have been fed up with several myths about our own bodies and the way those bodies should react when they are penetrated. From movies to books to adults in our lives - everyone seems to be propagating these myths, maybe because they don’t know any better themselves. But here’s an awesome video by Adam Ruins Everything that explains exactly how the hymen functions and just why the obsession with virginity is totally absurd. Watch, learn, spread awareness and bust the myths!
