The problem of course, being that there is no 'biological sense' of virginity.
Virginity is STRICTLY a cultural phenomenon. A virgin is someone who haven't
had sex. Full stop.
Your definition of virginity as having a hymen has no function. Instead of
talking about 'being a virgin' talk about 'having and intact hymen', because
thats what you mean.

Redefining a word that already has an accepted definition is not improving
communications. :)
