Virginity testing is a marriage custom where the bride is expected to pack a white sheet into her luggage before she leaves on her honeymoon. Today in Sri Lanka this white cloth is significant for the ammas, aachchies, nandammas etc. Officer Andrea Boekal co-ordinated the workshop. When the girl is tense and fearful, she will contract the peripheral muscles and this will cause the vaginal opening to be narrowed and restricted causing pain during attempted penetration. Historically, and in the present age, some cultures, which have treated female virginity more significant than male virginity on the pretext that sexual prowess is fundamental to masculinity, have lowered the expectation of the male virginity without lowering the social status.
Some of the young men interviewed thought that the bride who does not bleed at first intercourse has had premarital sex.
The Naked Truth Of Virginity
In cultures that have insisted on female virginity at marriage, the stakes have been very high. Another question often asked by many is that is, it possible for a virgin to become pregnant? Some young men said that they judge the character of their future wife by the results of the virginity test. In a highly civilized and enlightened society, these man-made manoeuvres and traditional expectations should be resisted so that both sexes can enjoy their sexual life by avoiding inter-personal relationships pitied against one another intentionally from outside. Most of them wanted their future to be a virgin at the time of marriage.
