Hi Anonymous,

Please help me clarify-- what diseases do you think an intact hymen will cause? 

There is no disease that accompanies being a virgin. Please don't let anyone try to tell you any different. Some men may try to tell you this to get to to have sex but being a 21 year old virgin will not put you at risk for illnesses or diseases. 

Good Luck,
