Hello Anonymous,

I am glad to answer your question.

What defines a virgin is complex. Definitions of virginity are often deeply personal and stem from religious, cultural, historical, and family influences that emphasize different values.

Some individuals define a virgin as a person who has not had sexual intercourse, meaning penis to vagina intercourse. To some, a virgin is someone who has not engaged in any intimate acts, including deep kissing, genital touching, and oral, vaginal, or anal sex. Others may allow certain intimacies, like kissing and masturbating, or touching yourself, while excluding other sex acts. Some people believe they are a virgin until they have sex with someone of the opposite sex, while many believe that people who exclusively have same sex partners can and do lose their virginity.

It is normal to question whether you are still a virgin. It's also normal, if not especially easy to come up with your own definition of what virgin means to you. Finding your personal definition could lead you on a journey of self-discovery and growth.

All the best,
