So much of our social life is focused around sex and hookup culture, but to me it seems that sometimes worth in relation to sex is more important than worth in relation to personhood.
Historically , virginity was tied predominantly to women. Through biblical texts and societal perpetuation, the “virgin” was defined as a woman who had yet to have sex, as proven by her “unbroken” hymen.
Women’s virginities were seen as a necessity in marriage, because women who weren’t pure were considered damaged goods. Marrying a “virgin” would also ensure that any future offspring were truly yours,an important point in a time that placed such a heavy emphasis on inheritance.
