What does it mean to be a virgin if you are a woman ?

What does it mean to be a virgin if you're a woman? Your hymen could break doing other things besides sex and other sexual activity. So, exactly what does being a virgin mean? Does it simply mean being sexually inexperienced? Are still a virgin if you masturbate? So what is it? And is it still a huge deal to men if a woman is a virgin? Thank you for answering!

Inside a woman's vagina there is a thin membrane called a hymen. This can easily be broken with a tampon or fingers but some women experience having their hymen torn when they first have sexual intercourse. This is where the term virgin has come from. A woman who has never had intercourse still had her hymen thus making her a virgin. It has nothing to do with experience. If you have never had sexual intercourse, then you are a virgin. Masturbation plays no role in virginity. And as a man no it's not a big deal as long as you are open minded.
