Let’s Talk About Virginity

Rana Husseini

Abstract


Taboo subjects such as the importance of virginity for Jordanian women and their sexual knowledge were open for public discussions in recent debates in the Kingdom. A private hospital which organised a lecture on virginity issues recently drew a large crowd that participated in an open and frank dialogue. For the first time in the Kingdom’s history physicians and psychiatrists presented the issue from a social, psychological and anatomical angle. Medical experts agreed that virginity should not be a prerequisite for men in choosing their partners.
