Actually, there is no real way to tell if anyone (male or female) is a virgin! By "virgin", I assume that you mean "person who has not had intercourse". Some women are born without hymens, and sometimes, the hymen is eroded by non-sexual activity (exercise, inserting tampons, etc). Males do not have anything that stretches orbreaks during intercourse, and sometimes, females don't either.

For more about virgins and hymens, please read the following article:
