I found this site while searching online for some research that could explain the possibility of a hymen being whole if a 13 year old claims she was raped over 100 times. I saw that you had some information about how it could be damaged if one is not sexually active, but not really anything for the argument that a young lady could have had sex that many times, and it still be intact. I have been struggling with this for over four years, and cannot currently pay a forensic expert $300. per hour to review the information. I do not understand how this could be a valid argument, even if there could be thickening or elasticity involved, especially as she was young and accusing a large, grown man. Would you mind to help me to understand how this could even be remotely be considered as plausible? I wish to be as objective as possible. Regards and thanks for the site.

Rape isn't sex, for starters.

Can you perhaps say more about what this situation is, why we're talking about paying forensic experts for anything, etc? I'm very perplexed by the situation you're asking about, particularly since it doesn't sound like you're asking about your own body.
