    I guess life's just unfair. If a guy ain't a virgin, you'll never be able to tell. Unfortunately, its not the same case for women. It's disgusting that women are facing the reality of being ostracized or murdered for losing their virginity before marriage. Its driving them to spend $4,000 on operations to restore their virginity which even then are not necessarily foolproof.

    To choose between maintaining family ties or a sex life.

    Life's a bitch.

    I have two friends from Saudi Arabia. The girl once told me that Saudi girls are not even allowed to ride bikes or horses in case they "lose" their virginity (you can't even lose it that way, wtf). I'm glad for not being born there

    ^ That's what I thought.

    Of course it's terrible but it's not exactly out of order with how things are often done in the Middle East.

    I wasn't shocked to say the least.

    In many cases, "proof" of virginity is required after the wedding night. (trying to be delicate here). Sometimes an accident on a bike or while riding a horse or other activities can rupture the hymen, and you won't bleed with your first sexual experience, hence there won't be any "proof" you were a virgin.

    These girls can then be ostracized or put to death. Pretty messed up.
