question - August 16th 2011, 01:52 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

i added a triggering thing because i wasnt sure if this is triggering or not.

My question is, if a peson is raped, does that make them a virgin? or are they not a virgin? i dont know if that made sense or not.

sorry if it didn't.

Hey Marla,

That's really up to you. I would still consider myself a 'virgin' if I were raped, but that's up to you to figure out on your own--it depends what your definition of virginity is.

You can always contact me to talk about anything!

First of all, your question did make sense so don't worry about that.

Secondly, I would still consider them a virgin as rape isn't necesarily about sex but more the power and control of the act.

I think, Biblically speaking, you are still a virgin. Virginity is not only body, it's your mind & heart also. You did not go with this man willingly, he took you by force. So no, I think you are still one

It all depends on how you think about it. After I was raped, I continued to label myself a virgin because I didn't want the sexual action. I was FORCED. When I had consensual sex, I decided that I'm no longer a virgin.
