In females virginity is tightly connected with a hymen. It is a piece of flesh that partially covers up the entrance into vagina. If the hymen is in place it may (or may not) mean the girl is a virgin. Technically she is a virgin if she has an unbroken hymen.

There is something called the two finger test. Usually, it should be done by elderly women. They carefully examine the vagina and even insert their finger into it to test the muscles.

For one, a virginity test is a part of sexism. As one woman said: “no one’s penis is important enough to judge who I am or to define me.” And it can also evoke various infections in vagina if not performed with care. Moreover, true virginity cannot be defined by hymen or absence of inserting penis into the vagina. A woman still can have oral sex or even anal sex and remain a “virgin”. Or she could restore hymen to get back her “virginity” through a surgery.
As you see, being a virgin is much more than just having certain things in place. It is about moral purity and commitment to God and to the man she loves.
