Two-finger test[ edit ] The process of virginity testing varies by region. In areas where medical doctors are available, the tests would often be given in a doctor's office. A doctor performs the test by inserting a finger into the female's vagina to check the level of vaginal laxity, which is used to determine if she is "habituated to sexual intercourse". Examinations to test for previous sexual activity used to be performed on rape victims in Bangladesh and India before it was banned. Traditionally, Kenuzi girls of the Sudan are married before puberty  by adult men who inspect them manually for virginity. Example of violence against women[ edit ] Even though virginity testing has been proclaimed an example of violence against women by the World Health Organization, it is still conducted in many countries.

Etymology[ edit ] The word virgin comes via Old French virgine from the root form of Latin virgo , genitive virginis, meaning literally "maiden" or " virgin "  —a sexually intact young woman or "sexually inexperienced woman". As in Latin, the English word is also often used with wider reference, by relaxing the age, gender or sexual criteria. In the latter usage, virgin means uninitiated. The Latin word likely arose by analogy with a suit of lexemes based on vireo, meaning "to be green, fresh or flourishing", mostly with botanic reference—in particular, virga meaning "strip of wood".
