Virgin is a person who has never had sexual intercourse. Sexual intercourse (also called coitus, or copulation) is reproductive act in which the male reproductive organ enters the female reproductive tract. If the reproductive act is complete, sperm cells are passed from the male body into the female, in the process fertilizing the female egg and forming a new organism . Sexual intercourse is sex, but "sex" is not limited to intercourse; not even limited, in fact, to genital activities. In reality, "sex" describes a huge range of activities. This is half of a dialectic: many things can be sex because sex has whatever meaning we experience moment by moment; and sex has an infinite range of meanings because the scope of activities that can properly be called sexual is so vast [3.]” One of the best-known sound bites of Bill Clinton’s presidency was denial: “I did not have sexual relations with that woman”. Clinton later stated that he believed the agreed-upon definition of sexual relations excluded his receiving oral sex . NB. All penetrative sex (where the penis enters the vagina, mouth, or anus) carries risk of STIs for both, lessened to some extent by condoms. There are no medical signs and symptoms of male or female virginity with one exception, which is presence of the halat hymen at the opening of the vagina . The hymen is a body part, also known as virginal membrane, it is a tight or loose and flexible rim, fringe of tissue around the vaginal opening that partly covers the entrance to the vagina of a virgin. While the professionally detected presence of a certain type of intact hymen indicates virginity, the absence of one is definitely not a proof a woman is not a virgin. An innocent, pure, prudent virgin can be robbed of her virginity and remain innocent, pure or prudent. However virgins rarely are asexual . Sexually active virgins have nothing to do with innocence, purity, or prudence but still preserve their virginity. Until marriage. If lucky. And wise.

Accuracy of traditional 'virginity testing' and impact of its type I and type II errors
on the death toll of HIV and other STIs epidemics
By their very nature, the South African and Swazi local goddess of rain Nomkhubulwane rites which are conducted by traditional healers ( Zulu: izangoma, Xhosa: amagqirha ) and labelled as 'virginity testing', definitely have nothing to do with professional medical examination meeting the specific evidence based medicine criteria.Dr Halat's arguments against non-professional virginity testing here .
The type I and type II errors are unavoidable.
False positives on 'virginity testing' fulfill the medical criteria of type I errors, i. e. tested virgin in spite of having had coitus at least once [main reasons: (a) elasticity of the hymen (certain types) i. e. the hymen regains its shape after inserting a penis, (b) healed hymen tear - post-coital healing of the hymen with no or hardly detectable scarring, (c) anatomical abnormalities of the vulva, (d) diseases of the vulva including sexually transmitted diseases and other infections, (e) constriction of the perineal muscles (voluntary or unconscious) visibly bringing the torn tissue together, (f)induced vaginal tightness; see:
Genital Self Examination at virgin-o-logy.com addresses common concerns, including problems caused by masturbation, e.g. "I do masturbate how to check if I popped my cherry myself?", see:

For the ones tested as virgins in spite of being ex-virgins, false positives on 'virginity testing' supply the certified evidence of the inefficacy of the system that is supposed to support virginity, and in fact encourage the spread of the promiscuity and rape culture. The rapists and their victims, their peers and whole communities get a guarantee stamp that the truth will never be uncovered.
VIRGINITY TESTING BEFORE UMHLANGA
"We look for the ihlo (eye, sometimes translated as the hymen) — it looks like a white dot. A virgin does not have a hole, only a white dot. It grows inside the vagina of a girl. If you see a damaged hole, then it means that the white dot has disappeared." here
