One of the most common questions I’m asked is whether or not the thin membrane in the opening of the vagina has to be broken during the first time a person has sex. We have this idea that it’s like a ribbon cutting ceremony and call it ‘losing one’s virginity’ or ‘popping the cherry.’ The truth is the hymen comes in many forms and changes in different ways depending on the person and their actions.
