Most of my blogs over the years have been written for people who are already sexually active and have experience with pivi penis-in-vagina intercourse. I hope guys will read this as well—virgins or not. Losing your virginity is not a topic that most of us bandy around in casual conversation. I heartily recommend that your first sexual partner be someone who is gentle and kind, with a good sense of humor. Take it from me: Couples who do it sober have a happier and safer experience!
Illustration by Shawna X. It should come as no surprise to Broadly readers that most of the world is organized around men. A man, Jacques Derrida, even created the word to express the idea: phallogocentrism. In short, the phallus defines the world, and for millennia it has defined sex.
The hymen is a crescent-shaped thin membrane that covers part of the vaginal opening see diagram below. This occurs especially if the opening in the hymen is small or there is pain with insertion. Some women may have a few spots of blood the first time they have sex, others do not. There is no sure way of knowing if someone has ever had sexual intercourse. In the old days, people believed that a woman was a virgin only if she bled the first time she had vaginal intercourse with a male partner.
