SUMMARY
Virginity as a social construct is best understood by understanding where virginity and myths about the hymen came from in the first place. I talk about the origin of virginity and how holding on to this concept negatively affects people. I argue that instead of thinking in terms of "losing virginity" we should think about sexual acts as equal and think of the start of sexual activity in terms of a "sexual debut".
