Virginity & anal sex
Posted on: 01/08/2010
Can a virgin lose her virginity from anal sex? And what does it mean when you get spotting after that? Does that mean you lost your virginity?
Viriginity is "not being sexually active" -- anal sex means you are sexually active. During the first vaginal intercourse, when the tissue inside the vagina (called the hymen) is torn by a penis, a female tends to bleed. So anal sex cannot tear the hymen, and the bleeding was probably due to the very delicate tissue inside the anus being torn. I hope you used a condom!
