A female asked:

If the head of the penis made your vagina bleed, does that make you a virgin or not? did he even pop my hymen?

Hymen intact?: If your hymen is intact then I guess you could still be considered a virgin. You would need to examine your vagina to answer the question. Based on the information presented, I'd guess you've "popped your hymen."

Probably: If you had vaginal bleeding following intercourse, you were not having your period and you were a virgin prior to intercourse, then it was likely that your hymen was ruptured.

Name games: Some cultures have an interesting approach to virginity. They place a value on the hymen/ bleeding with the first sanctioned intercourse as some evidence of purity. Some women are born without a hymen or loose it to non sexual events. Many forms of intercourse can pass disease but preserve the hymen. If you bled, tissue was torn. If you had a penis in your vagina you are not a virgin.

Virginity: Ever since Clinton-Lewinsky, we've become even more creative in defining our status eg oral virgin, anal virgin, vaginal virgin, technical virgin, etc. Traditional definition referred to penile-vaginal sex with idea that one "lost" virginity status upon penetration. Some women have more prominent hymen than others, such that some bleed/bled more their 1st time, while others never did.
