That is a question that only you can answer.

There are many different definitions of "virginity", depending on the context. Are you concerned with whether or not you are a virgin due to a particular religion, future partner's opinion, or for medical/health concerns? Some women must remain a virgin in their culture for marriage, or risk injury or death. Other women, in other cultures, feel that they should remain a virgin so that they have no sexual contact with a man before marriage. And, of course, there are many other variations of this word, and the deeper meaning.

Usually the term "virgin" very specifically describes a woman who has had no penis-to-vagina intercourse. Depth of penetration usually does not have any significance, but depending on the woman and her reasons for choosing this way of "being", she can define it as it suits her belief system.

Do you feel that you are still a virgin? What is important to you about remaining a virgin?
