What's the Deal With Revirgination?

What's the Deal With Revirgination?

I just came across a disturbing website called Revirgination. It's devoted to giving you info about hymen repair. Why, you may ask? So you can look and feel like a virgin again.

After you've had sex for the first time, supposedly your hymen (a fold of mucous membrane that partially covers the external vaginal opening) breaks, so having hymenoplasty surgery can help reclaim your virginity once it's been lost. The website says that "you wouldn't want your boyfriend/future husband to feel ashamed because your hymen no longer exists," but a woman's hymen isn't necessarily an indication that she's a virgin. Many times this mucous membrane can separate due to nothing sexual at all: strenuous activities, sports, inserting a tampon, or for no apparent reason whatsoever. Masturbation can also cause the hymen to separate, but for some women, even after intercourse, the hymen remains intact.

This whole idea about revirgination just confuses me — a little surgery down there isn't going to erase the sexual experiences you've had, so what's the point? Perhaps it makes sense for some, so weigh in and tell me what you think about revirgination.

I think this is ridiculous. Once you've had sex you aren't a virgin anymore. I think that not dwelling on it is a better bet. No man is ever going to know if you don't tell them.

Yes, I can see why this might be important in certain cultures where virginity is sacred, and if the girl was raped, this could in a way save her life. I'm sure non-virgins are not sought after for marriage in some cultures.

for as long as men have been requesting from us the proof of virginity that is how long we have been producing such.

What if your hymen was broken because you were raped and you want to "lose" your "virginity" with somebody by choice now? I can see the reasoning behind that. Otherwise... no. I didn't lose my virginity to my first boyfriend because he raped me. I lost it to my second.

...if this becomes popular.. it'll just give another reason for men to doubt women all over again. "are your boobs real?" "is your hymen real?" :ROTFL:

Disturbing for so many reasons. Cultures or religions that require you to be a virgin when you marry will NOT be impressed that you had sex, and then had your hymen reinstated. I mean, what guy who thinks that he is his wife's first, would enjoy finding out that not only is he not her first lover, but she has lied and deceived him for however many years. Better to be upfront about it to begin with. If a tiny little piece of membrane is more important to your future mate than the whole rest of your body and mind, then you need to look elsewhere for a mate anyway. Better to know up front that he does not value you at all, than find out later after you've lived a lie for years. As for rape victims, the rapist steals sooo much more than just their hymen from them, and frankly i don't think any surgery can reinstate what was taken from them. A disturbing fad that i hope dies like all other fads eventually do.

Yeah.. I've heard of this before. It was in an article where islamic women in Spain were getting the procedure done so that their husbands couldn't tell that they had already had sex. There are occasions when the hymen doesn't break upon "devirginization;" when I was in sex ed, the teacher said it could break when riding a bike or something. I wouldn't know, I'm not an expert on this stuff. Only repeating what I've heard.

Very sad ...I have heard of this before and it does indeed seem to be cultural.

I know there are some cultures that "require" you to be a virgin on your wedding night, but if you are so uncomfortable with your sexual decisions that you are willing to go as far as surgery, there is something mentally not right.

Wow, that's crazy. It's so horrible that women feel like they have to do something like that to fit in with their culture (or men in other words). So do some women have this procedure done even if they really are still virgins? Like if virginity is all based on the fact of whether you have your hymen or not, then for ex. What if a women really was a virgin but her hymen was broken b/c she played sports or used a tampon, would she still get the procedure just b/c her husband would think she wasn't a virgin? B/c that's double crazy. I mean...can men actually tell if you do or don't have your hymen when they have sex with you? I mean really...what kind of man is thinking that as he has sex with a women!? lol lol lol! "honey, I don't feel your hymen, have you been lying to me about being a virgin!?" you: "ummm no sweetie, you just don't know what to feel for, trust's there". ROFLMAO!!!!!!!!!! hahahahhaha. :)

Really silly. HOw can you tell your hymen is broken anyway unless a gyno tells you?

I understand that it happens for cultural reasons, but I honestly think it should be outlawed. Its disgusting and absolutely not right these women have to go through this. But then again youve got vaginal mutilation ceremonies still happening, so what good would it do!

I think that once you've had sex you're no longer a virgin. A repaired hymen can't change that. But I can see how maybe a virgin rape victim might benefit from this. The rapist took something very special of hers...this would be a way for her to start over and save the experience for someone she loves.

This makes me laugh. Although after a long time period of not having sex (no hot men anywhere to be found), I feel like a virgin again!

"This makes no sense to me. Does this involve some faith-based reasoning?" I would think this might be practiced in response to *cultural* pressure rather than as a method religious preservation -- meeting the expectations of a person's family and community (rather than attempting to adhere to God's commandments). But I wouldn't know.

Good point Cubadog. I lived in Cairo for two years and I rather frequently heard stories of wealthier Egyptian women having this done because of the pressure to appear a virgin when they were married. You also see this in the Gulf and Saudi Arabia. Even here in the UK you hear of women of Pakistani/Bangladeshi descent having this done. Yes, it is sad and disturbing. Of course, as an indicator of virginity it is useless. Backward cultural practices, unfortunately, die hard. (Rather pathetic too that the men who obsess over this question of "honour" don't apply this same standard to themselves)
