Video: The hymen is a poorly-understood body part, right up there with the spleen and the gallbladder: you’ve heard of it, but may have no idea what it looks like or how it actually works. This video from CollegeHumor schools you with style.
The most important point: a hymen isn’t a marker of virginity that gets popped as a rite of passage. It’s actually a membrane that (usually) only partially covers the vaginal opening, and it varies from person to person. It’s totally normal to have sex without tearing it, or to tear it without having sex. Some women never had one to begin with. Watch the whole video for more fun facts about this misunderstood membrane.
