09:32 am - Virginity
Interesting. Virginity has a number of definitions, but the one that intrigued me most was this:

3. An unmarried woman who has taken religious vows of chastity.

In other words, women can become virgins again through religious vows.

How do you like them apples?

The most interesting thing about it is that (with women) there's a noticable physical difference between a virgin and a non-virgin. That's why it's so intriguing to me that a religious vow can re-place viriginity in women (but apparently not men) when there's a physical difference.

*shrugs* I suppose it would make the perons *like* a virgin if they lost their memory. Great. Now I have Madonna playing in my head.

Great, thanks for that. Madonna is catching you know.

Perhaps thats the idea. Because there's no physical difference between a sexually active male and a virgin it doesn't matter whether they are or not, so there's no need for a religious vow to restore it.

I just realized that I wrote:

Didn't she play a Peron in some movie? If she did, I didn't mean to write that; it was just a happy pun. And Madonna is somewhat like a virus.

But you might be right. The idea could very well be that the idea of the vow is to make a kind of "sacred agreement" that replaces the virginity, even perhaps creates a "spiritually real" hymen to replace the physical one. . . Hmm. . . I wonder. . .

Gotta think a lot more on that.

w00t!

You know, some Japanese women do try and have their innards reconstructed so they can be "virgins" again.
