The Prioritizing Of Female Virginity

Have you ever thought of this? I mean has this question ever cross your mind?, why is female virginity given so much priority in the society?

Female virginity is so sacred, very much talked about, and to some extent the most important part of there life. But on the other hand their male counterpart are very much sidelined , not talked about, not appreciated or even seen as a relevant thing (their virginity) in the society to talk about. So the big question still remains,

Why is female virginity given so much priority over there male counterpart?

Or does it mean that there are no male virgin in our society?

Shouldn't that same sacredness also be given to male virginity?

Since there are no proven test for female virginity, should we even consider it as as a fraud or is it just another myth that has been going on for years.

It's just my opinion, so let me hear from you, because I think it worth it.

  • There shouldn't be more priority to female virginity to Male cause the female can't lose her virginity without a male participation. So I think there should be high demand of the both in the society. Then reasons why I think there is more priority to female virginity than male is because of the society that is the part of the world where we are which expects every female should be descent.

  • Both male and female virginity should be considered sacred and important in the society but the mistake and the belief of the society is that male are less prone to dangers than female and this has destroy life's of many male child

  • Right from time immemorial, it had been recognized to be that women who kept themselves are considered special and sacred e.g the mother of Jesus. God created women in a special way, that womb they have is also special, they are like creators so their virginity is respected so much. God himself has respect for virgins.

  • I think the best gift a woman can give to her husband is her virginity. On the other hand the mans virginity is as important as the female counterpart. But it's just that the society we live in today has subordinated the woman to the man( right now it's changing). It's as though all the rules are for the women.

  • To me I support the prioritising of female virginity. This will make many female outside there to have the fear of doing bad things around. Furthermore, virginity is not effective in a guy.  Nobody knows if you're a drill. So I think female virginity should be emphasised

  • nowadays ladies sees this virginity as a way of frauding guy, that's it's not a sacred to some guys due to the experience they have with some girls. but to me it's still a sacred, virginity is a dignity.

  • To be a virgin  as a  lady is not easy especially when you have seen things,  and virginity of a girl is her pride and prestige.  I think  why male virginity are not given so much priority is maybe  because they  have not gotten anything to use and check male virginity.

  • Certainly virginity isn't for female only, we have male virgin but the society we live in has made a taboo for a lady to lose her virginity before her wedding night thus allowing man to be promiscuous. Come to think of it, haven't heard of a man been shamed for not been a virgin but alot of female has been abused for doing so. Double standard and it ain't cool. 

    In western world, no one cares about your virginity but what you can offer..

  • I really don’t know much about why the female virginity is held sacred but I think is because it involves the shedding of blood, and that action can be likely seen as a covenant. S3x has its spiritual complications especially the breaking of the feminine virginity, whoever breaks a feminine virginity is now bonded in a covenant with her due to the presence of the blood.

  • I will say it is not a fraud and one of  the reason why female virginity is been prioritize over the their male counterpart is the men is that they have less or nothing to loose but female after loosing theirs they are faced with risk of unwanted pregnancy etc.

  • The reason is that once any lady opens her leg for a man ,she doesn't stop ,she keeps on, so measures are taking in place once the virginity is lost the next thing that follows is menopause but men don't enter menopause only women and that is why a man can still be active even at old age and can marry as many wives as possible but virginity of woman is priceless and a husband will always respect a woman that kept her virginity as a role model because marriage these days in Igbo land is like buying a lady and no man will be happy to buy a used container

  • That's how the culture has kept it. We can't amend what has been in history you know, but I believe as we grow older in this digital generation that mentality will be wiped off from our minds. Lol

  • Personally i believe that there are several tests for the female virginity. And many men claim to know various method of testing if the female involved is a virgin. Many men would personally want their wives to be virgins as they take pride in disvirging their wife. However you can't prove that a man is a virgin and neither would u mind as his manhood will neither shrink from being disvirgined or enlarge in comparison to a female.

  • Female virginity is believed to be sacred according to tradition and it represents dignity and pride for the family of a girl who is able to keep herself till marriage. It was priotized in the past because it brings glory to the family and indicates that such family has taken a proper care of their female child. There is no way to a certain a male virgin, this is why priority is not placed on male virginity. Unlike the hymen place at the entrance of a female private organ which when it is broken shows that such gilr has involved herself in an immoral act.

  • In my own opinion that virgin thing is in the past and don't really matter now. But then if there still exist virgins thumps up for them, I wouldn't say it's an achievement cause those who ain't anymore one time was and the present ones will lose it someday.

  • I don't really know, the way people carry it all about a female virginity, as if males, we don't need, or have to be virgins too. 

    Maybe because is believed men love s3x more than women, which is no longer true.

  • There is a saying that says " A lock that can be opened by any key is a useless key , but a key that can open any lock is a master key" but I recommend give credits to the male virgins , it's not easy resisting temptations

  • I don't really have much to say. Just that I think male virginity isn't as sacred as that of women. If a wirl looses her virginity, she's likely to get pregnant that's why no one plays with female virginity. 

    - Okafor Chigaemezu Ifeanyi - 2019-09-27 12:21:00 Quote

  • Because you are still a virgin as a man does not me you will conclude that female virginity has no test. Its male virginity that has no test and that is the sole reason why it is not celebrated and taken serious.

  • Good question.. The same priority placed on female virginity is supposed to be placed on the male virginity too...

    Butthe reason it seems like they dont talk about that of the male is because its the female thata most affected in the scandal of breaking of virginity...if there's pregnancy, its the female that is  exposed 

    And most STDs are visible more on females than males

  • Virginity is the state of a person who has never engaged in sexual intercourse. There are cultural and religious traditions that place special value and significance on this state, predominantly towards unmarried females, associated with notions of personal purity , honor,and worth.

  • Our afrcian culture made women virginity a big deal which is a good one, well I don't think there is need for that same energy in male's virginity. I know men that kept themselves and never realized that had low sperm count until they got married. We all know the implication of that.

  • Virginity is very sacred right from the beginning of creation. It is an ideal fact that a lady should preserve her virginity until she is married and then proper to engage in sexual intercourse with her intimate spouse whom she has agreed to spend the rest of her life with. I respect girls who highly moral and have great standards sbout themselves in this area of life....... Kiddos to them all

  • Why they actually stress female virginity is because women are the weaker vessels. If she has lost her virginity because of one man what makes you think that she did not sleep with any other man. And set If u hear a woman is not a virgin, there is a comma abi, but if women hear a man is not a virgin, they see you like a real man already.

  • Females have what is called the hymen which gets broken after the first sexual intercourse and this involves blood while in males theres nothing like that,he still feels the same way after the first sexual intercourse

  • Virginity Of lady is her pride weather being proven by anything, once a lady has not have any s8xual intercourse that automatically made her virgin weather she have bad/good attitude she is a virgin,  And she needs to be respected. Marrying a virgin in Nigeria is as if you are the most luckiest man on earth.

    - Paul Tochukwu - 2019-09-27 13:41:26 Quote

  • Well the female virginity is more prioritized based on the fact that people say a guy can't be a virgin that I only the girls that the word been a virgin should be used for, and with all those sayings too, a guy with my findings respects a lady who is a virgin a lot. And some guys wishes to marry a virgin

  • Yes we all know virginity is dignity and it meant for your husband on your wedding night but after a wedding night please what else?

    I feel like there's no importance to virginity just be a decent girl that's the thing.

    - Kuburat Abdulsalam - 2019-09-27 14:39:05 Quote

  • There is no specific test for a virgin girl to prove that she is or not but the truth remains that virginity is no a myth just that it's been giving much importance and because of that it makes all attention to fall on it and such the ladies take it so seriously. 

    As for guys, we don't have s guy Virgin. Being a virgin as a guy is between you and your God because they is no specific thing to show for it.

  • The female  virginity is so sacred because we females have a lot things attached  to it,  even the Bible specifies that a female  should  give her virginity  to her husband. I feel it's because of the presence of the hymen

  • Our Africa society make vaginity a very special issue, a woman who is vigin is considered as good type, not considered other accept of it, viginity is more value that any other thing in our society. any vigin is regarded as saint without sin.

  • Well, the virginity of a girl is her pride. In my own thought, I don't think there's something like a Male virgin because you can't know even when he tells you he is. In female virgin do exist because if s8xual intercourse happen between a male and female, if the lady is still a virgin there must be a blood coming out of her private part

    - Emmanuel Omotoso - 2019-09-27 15:54:25 Quote

  • Well, in female virginity, you can actually see it and when broken, they feel pain but men ,vir virginity shows nothing. So, we pity women because of the pain and that's why we give their virginity priority

  • Men will always be men ,see there are certain things that you cant compare together just like virginity. In our society female virginity was given more attention than male whereas it should be treated equally, this virginity issues has caused so many female the relationship of so many years.

  • To me male virginity has not been given much attention unlike their female conterpart because it goes or comes unnoticed.  Girls are given priority because they are given out for maraige and as such every husband would expect to meet her wife in her virginity state. It is presumed to be a thing of honour even for the parents, they hold their heads high if their daughters are met by a husband or groom as virgines.

  • The female folks are most vulnerable in the society. They don't work alone in the darkness or else they may be raped. They must accompanied by a friend or relative when someone who is not close to them in other to avoid sexual harassment. It is not so with men. People do easily take advantage of women that is why their virginity is given high reverence than the male counterpart.

  • A woman virginity is her pride and prestige... Our country now women virginity is sacred... Because they have something to test if she is still a virgin or not.. But I don't think they have for male... It's said a woman is meant to loose her virginity on her wedding night

  • The reason why is like that is because if a guy is a virgin you will not know but if a girl is a virgin she will not even say it you will know

    - Miracle Boniface - 2019-09-27 16:33:28 Quote

  • I think the reason for the prioritisation of the female virginity is because it is usually more emphasized in most religions. Apart from that the existence of the hymen, which marks the state of virginity of a female makes it possible to determine wether a girl is a virgin or not. The absence of something like that in males makes their virginty less significant.

  • A woman is a blessed creature. One with the ability to bear life within her. The passage to do that is disclosed in the loss of virginity. To be a virgin is a thing of grace and purity, untouched and holy .. A woman who losses her virginity to a man is bound to him even if he doesn't become her lifelong spouse.

    So if we decide to give our Virginity to Christ we are bound to him spiritually and he sows in our lives the seed of life so great  unseen by another. PRAISE BE TO THE LORD

  • Good topic. 

    Well it is believed dat  females are t be pur till marriage. I believe dis mentality can into existence right from d scripture about Mary. 

    It was eve since den it has been seen as priority for females. 

    Moreso  our in our culture, it I a thing of pride do dat kind of  girl and honour  to d family. 

    Dat is why it seems so sacred.

  • Virginity is still sacred and dignifying,  its peculiar to female folks because female virginity has a vivid proof,  while male doesn't have. And according to our society,  its still ladies that are mostly advised to keep themselves.

  • I can't correctly predict if a guy is a virgin or not, but the same cannot be said when it comes to ladies. 

    And due to this believe that we go all out appreciating any lady cux they were virgins, it becomes a means of extortion and lies so as to cover their real identities. 

    I have come across in my line of relationship a girl who kept telling me she was a virgin, but I knew she wasn't, and it continued till the day I went through her text for the first time, something she has kept doing anytime she wants cux she knows my password, when I went through her text, I discovered a chat where she said she keep telling men she was a virgin to get them not to have s*x with her and a means for her to extort money from them, till how long she wished to do it. I was so so disappointed in her after knowing that for the last years of knowing her, I really don't know who I was dealing with.

  • Female virginity has its place and the emphasis placed on it is not wrong. A female who cannot maintain her virginity should do contraception which may have several side effects. When a female becomes pregnant several challenging scenarios will have to be addressed and decisions made. These decisions definitely affect the future of the female child. Therefore female virginity is not over emphasized.

  • Virginity is priceless to women because that is their dignity unlike a man who doesn’t claim virginity status 

    that is because men are the ones that advance move to women in the real sense so they see their Virginity as a big Price 

    the same way a woman gets to menopause at a certain age while men are still active even at  old age

    so Virginity is a precious status in a woman’s life

  • That is the life we live in, in life when you see a pregnant woman you congratulate her forgetting the mad whose hard work is showing on the lady, same thing when you see a virgin you encourage her but forgetting the male counterpart, that is to tell you that as a man, those things dont count to people, what count is what you have archived and also as a man, dont wait for people to congratulate you like the ladies.

    - Eke Kingsley - 2019-09-27 18:22:25 Quote

  • What I can say about this is that virginity is the dignity of any lady. And because of this, they use it as a cover up to proof themselves to a guy that seriously want to date them but its unfortunate many a times its a lie. If we are to gather ten ladies together hardly will you see three that are still virgin of them. And the same goes to the guys too. But its just that male ones is hidden.

  • I will say virginity is a pride for the female..and it should be considered for male too because there are also male virgins..any woman who loses her virginity to a man is supposed to be bound to him but today it is not so..because of the wayward generation we are in today..i pray God helps us
