Virginity is part of our existence in the world as embodied sexual subjects. While many meanings are associated with virginity, in most of the Arab world virginity relates to the presence of a hymen and extends to encompass the honor of the Arab community, and virginity loss commonly relate to first vaginal intercourse. This study explored the meanings of virginity from the perspectives of Arab and Arab American women. A qualitative phenomenological approach, informed by the philosophy of Maurice Merleau-Ponty, was used to conduct in-depth interviews with ten women. Our participants provided a better understanding of the diverse meanings of virginity that move beyond the binary of virginity and virginity loss, and into a spectrum of embodied meanings.

I think this violates the community guidelines. Chat or rant, adult content, spam, insulting other members. I think this is illegal. Harm to minors, violence or threats, harassment or privacy invasion, impersonation or misrepresentation, fraud or phishing, etc. Arab men prefer virgins, I know that because I myself an Arab and I was just like what the community wanted me to be until I had sex with a virgin and discovered it sucks. Arab males don't feel secure with an experienced woman, they want her blind so they can control her, want her ignorant so they can be the only thing she knows and with lack of experience, women simply will be considered they don't know any better. And that's the point. I prefer the woman to enjoy it and like me enough to want to be with me or id rather be on my own. I am also an Arabic man, I get Europian girl didn't look for who kept herself virgin for the real love I guess time is not a factor in the Arab world-in your country.
Think about it: knowing that you are going to have one woman for the rest of your life, would you want her to be sexually open, and willing to wear that Princess Leia outfit, or the woman that thinks birth control is the devil, and sex is only for procreation? If you want the latter, get the fuck off my website. Come back only after you have done some serious soulsearching and self-reflection.
Virginity is a sacred aspect when it comes to marriage in Egypt - or is it? Mariam Raymone interviews men with different backgrounds to understand what they think of women who lose their virginity before marriage. Of the unfortunate undeniable truths of Egyptian society and our general commonwealth is gender inequality. It is one of the simple infallibilities of our Egyptian existence.
