Covering the opening of the vagina, the hymen is a thin layer of skin that can be torn or stretched open with penetration. Found about half an inch inside the vagina, the hymen has tiny holes and a small opening in the centre that allows for menstrual flow. Sometimes the tearing of the hymen can be uncomfortable and cause bleeding.
David, a year-old in England, needed to lose his virginity or he was going to die. The subreddit is a community for virgins to connect, meet up and hopefully have sex for the first time. We tracked down two guys who used it to get laid for the first time.
I'm here to tell you that you were probably taught a lot of myths about sex from that weird P. No, Coach Carr, if you have sex you are not guaranteed to get chlamydia and die. But you might get chlamydia, so please remember the part where he tells you to use a condom. But fear not!

Where bananas are obvious, and peaches have been assigned backdoor duty, since the 16th century, artists, writers, musicians, and run-of-the-mill perverts have all agreed: There's something about women and cherries, whether that cherry is in our mouths or waiting to be popped inside of us.
The concept of female "virginity" has a complicated history, and has often been incorrectly linked to breaking the hymen. Bleeding after intercourse was thought to be proof of an unbroken hymen, and thus, proof that a woman had not had sex before. The reality, however, is that the state of your hymen has nothing to do with sexual activity.
The most common language used to describe sexuality can appear bizarre and confusing when given a second thought. For instance, the whole idea of cherry popping is pretty odd when you start to unpack the concept. The metaphor gets weirder the longer you think about it.
