If you are a sexually active lesbian and have never been penetrated by a man, are you still a virgin?

In brief: It depends
There are many definitions for "virgin"; some believe it is not having had sexual intercourse with a partner of the other sex, some believe it is once you become sexually active "below the belt" and had penetrative or anal sex ("untouched").
It depends on what you believe the definition of "virgin" is. It is a grey zone!

In brief: You decide
Some people believe that a woman/girl loses her virginity once she uses a tampon.
Others believe this but only if the woman's hymen gets torn in the process. Others still believe a woman can have any type of sex other than vaginal intercourse & still be a "virgin." in many cultures that consider(ed) women property the notion of virginity is/was very impt. How does this notion affect ur life?

Agree with Dr. Adelstein. There are some cultures where anal intercourse is practiced before marriage so that the female partner can still be considered a virgin.

In brief: Definition?
In a biblical sense, you probably would still be considered a virgin.
In many cultures, you might still be considered a virgin. However, a virgin usually indicates inexperience sexually, and you are experienced. As far as your health and medical history, you need to be honest with your doctor and let them know of your experience.

In brief: Words have meaning
If you look at that original meaning it implied purity & no chances of having acquired a sexually transmitted disease.
While lifestyles and relationship patterns change, the implied definition remains the same. Any partner sex will have risk of a sexually transmitted disease and thus end the "pure" label. The rest is word games.
