Show me a virgin and I will prove to you she is a goddess!
Virginity is a widely debated topic, while some religions have been able to state it's Importance some haven't. the power of a virgin to explore his or her divine benefit is called Synopsis. According to Rakuteen Kobo Synopsis is: The Power of Virginity explores the benefits, privileges and divine favour that is bestowed upon the man or woman who chooses to wait and make God their first love.
Also according to Dr Stefanie Sinclair; Virginity, women’s lack of sexual experience before marriage in particular, has been highly valued in many different cultures. Some feminist critics have argued that the high value placed on the virginity of unmarried women has been used to control women, denying them sexual freedom and associating it with the transference of ‘unspoiled goods’ from fathers to husbands. Others celebrate virginity as an active, liberating choice. Virginity has also been valued for its very practical function of preventing unwanted pregnancy, particularly in the absence of other forms of reliable birth control. The veneration of the virgin goddess Athena in Ancient Greece and the power assigned to the Vestal Virgins in Ancient Rome and to the Virgin Mary within some forms of Christianity highlight the great spiritual significance that has been associated with female virginity.
