I am not quiet sure what are you asking?
Are you asking if you are still considered a virgin if you had foreplay?

Hi Anon,

Thanks for your post.

Depending on what you mean by virginity (and foreplay), you may no longer be one. Generally (especially socially in some countries) one is considered a virgin if she has never had sexual intercourse or any kind of penetration (penis/finger/object etc).

Some cultures believe that the lack of a hymen signifies a lack of virginity but this is certainly not the case since the hymen can tear just by being physically active.

Foreplay with no penetration or oral sex (with no penetration) does not take away virginity (from a medical/physical point of view) although again, some cultures believe it does. Simply kissing and hugging has nothing to do with virginity from a physical standpoint.

Depending on whom you ask, virginity isn't as clear cut as it is if you simply take it from a biological stance.

If you have further questions, let us know!
