A female asked:

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

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.

Not: You can decide for yourself what it means for you. However, genital to genital sex with penetration is not consistent with a label of virginity. It includes all the risks of any full intercourse including pregnancy and transfer of sexually transmitted diseases. The hymen does not pop, it tears & the entrance of the penis with bleeding does the deed.

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."
