Dop a search around the site and the boards for the subject of virginity, eh? What you'll find out is that it is NOT a medical state or concept. There is NO "physical" definition" of virginity: it's a cultural and personal concept that people define in all sorts of different ways.

Not all women bleed with first intercourse, just like not all women experience pain. If you subscibe to the idea of virginity, no one else can tell you what it means, but to most it means either having any sort of partnered genital sex or intercourse, which you had.
