Recent trends of sexual abstinence vows among teenagers in developed societies recall the traditional construct of female virginity. While this contemporary concept ostensibly applies the idea of virginity to both sexes and thus escapes from the patriarchal notion of sexual control, it is still not without its problems. Adolescence health experts point out that when teenagers are taught that abstinence is the only way to sexual well-being, they are being denied useful knowledge of sexually transmitted diseases and planned pregnancy. Furthermore the notion of chastity varies from one movement to another. More conservative ones like the Silver Ring Thing forbid any kind of sexual contact between girls and boys but many teenagers secretly believe that vaginal intercourse is the only thing they are not allowed to engage in. Also such movements are very often couched in religious terms and this raises questions about their validity in an avowedly secular society.
The bottom-line seems to be that no single kind of virginity test is foolproof. So instead of looking for a partner who is technically a virgin, one might do better to accept a woman for who she is and for all the ways she can bring joy in another person’s life.
