What 'counts' as losing your
Different people have different
opinions on this, and some say
there are different types of
virginity. But most people
generally agree that if a man or
woman has had penetrative sex,
that is sexual intercourse, then
they are no longer a virgin. What do you think?
It depends on how you look at it. Any sexual act with another person would qualify you as sexually active and no longer a virgin, but to physically lose your virginity would be to engage in intercourse. Every woman has a hymen, or a "cherry", and once it has been broken, she is no longer a virgin, even if it was not broken by intercourse itself, but by other forms of sexual activity (i.e. fingers, toys, etc.)
There are two ways to see this.
Some people strictly go by if a woman's hymen is intact she is considered a virgin (Even if she has had oral, anal, or manual sex with a partner or partners).
Others see any sexual activity between two people as a loss of virginity. Personally I'm torn.
It would be hard for me to consider someone a virgin who has had oral sex with several partners even if they never had "intercourse" .
The word "virgin" still has the meaning of "purity" beneath it.
In my opinion, I believe losing your virginity comes when you have participated in intercourse. Oral or anal. To me, any act where both partners are completely naked and engaging in intercourse constitutes losing your virginity.

Sodom wasn't smited for homosexuality (false-idol worship, poor treatment of strangers and the poor, gang rape). Leviticus doesn't matter (old covenant, pork, lobster, tattoos, mixed fibers, period sex, swearing). Paul was talking about vastly different subjects (lust, guilt, boy...

As the un-believers would have us believe, Man was created, specifically, by a form of deity for the purposes of testing. In this creation Man, being an inferior life form, would be subjected to a hostile world without an instruction manual, but no matter, Man could not read or write anyway. In...
