And this ties into what is known as the sexual double standard: Women are shamed for having sex and men are rewarded for it. The idea of your first penis-in-vagina sexual encounter being something significant and life altering well, for women anyway has origins in women being considered property.

The hymen is the stuff of legend and lore in many cultures, the treasured prize a woman gives her husband on their wedding night.

Virginity means a state of purity or in experience. Traditionally a virgin is a person that has not had sexual intercourse. Virginity has different meanings and importance in different religions and cultures.

Unfortunately, it is still widely believed and practised to subjugate women. The Human Rights Watch condemned the test as a form of gender-based violence and called on the military to end the practice immediately, which it says violates the prohibition of inhuman treatment under international human rights law.
