Unless you can bend over that far, you're not an expert, and you're also not a gynecolegist.

I remember bleeding a little bit when I had my first pap smear. I think my hymen got snagged a little. But I knew I was still a virgin because I learned that by reading a teen magazine.

THis is all from centuries upon centuries of societal conditioning that women can't take precedent over their sex lives. That's why women who have had multiple sexual partners are considered whores while men are venerated

Adam: Maybe you should call an expert. Emily: good point i’ll get one now. Adam:Yeah,it’s what I usually do. Emily:How’s this for an expert? Adam:ok I feel bad now.

I love how she pointed out how the "virginity" exams in rape cases is again sexual assault. It's true. After being a victim, you don't want anyone going near your parts again.
Louis Deydier (1 month ago)
I want to sensibilize you on two things: First: don't blame your former teachers/instructors/whoever else taught you wrong because these people's knowledge depends of their predecessors. Have you dissecated a vagina before to check what this video says? Neither do them: they teach what they were taught. The answer? Forgive and move on, don't blame. Second: using one's sex to assert a scientific claim concerning its body is a terrible fallacy. There is absolutely no correlation between having or being something and possessing the entire knowledge about that thing. That's not how critical thinking works. It's like saying I am a car owner so I know absolutely everything about my car, from how it is made, with which exact material to how it works and how to flawlessly drive it. No one is born with instinctive perfect knwoledge about itself. I'm a human and I don't know how the process of pooping works nor why it comes out brown while it came in in a large variety of colours. I am a male and I have no clue of how the penile erection process works. I have no natural way to know that beside direct experimentation or learning from another. And the same applies to Emily. Of course you still show your sources but that is not the point, I do not question the information, you are still doing a more than decent job here. But presenting a woman as a woman body expert just because she is a woman herself is a very dangerous fallacy that can lead to a lot of misconception and disinformation. That's one of the anti-vaccine movement motor: "As a mother I know exactly what is good and what is bad for my children and that evil autism chemicals-filled seringe will not touch my kids". That's a pretty bad move and I am quite disappointed for I do like your work and videos and so expect a lot from it. One last thing is a big thank you, really. A pretty personal and intimate reason I think is still important to share so you understand why this video have been really important to me. Me and my girlfriend have a lot of trouble for our intercourses for penetration seems impossible and it frustrates and stresses her a lot as she's still a virgin. Not knowing what to do, why it happens and seing her like this makes me sad because I love her. Without further ado, I would say that watching this video and reading a few stories in the comments helped me know more about our issue and damn, what a relief. Even if it didn't solve the problem, your video helped me a lot (which will help us as a couple) and I am sincerely grateful for that. Thank you for reading this way too long comment. Here, have a potato! Again team, thank you from France.

Charon (1 month ago)
Physically it's not a thing, no. Socially it is. But the social aspect of it is what makes people misunderstand what hymens even are.
I would just like to ask: who out there is stupid enough to think that a hymen is a thin, paper layer?

BECAUSE THE HYMEN DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY!!!!! Also, can we get an episode about the concept of virginity itself?? I mean, when I look up any term referring to sexual intercourse, it always refers to vaginal sex. Do other forms of sex NOT count as sex?? What even is virginity?? Does making out not count as sexual activity?? What about groping?? When does a person go from "not having sex" to "has had sex"?? I really don't understand the distinction when it comes to healthy consensual relationships...
Marvel Disneyfan (2 months ago)
The weird thing is, I (a guy) already knew the hymen wasn't an effective determination of virginity, but I DIDN'T know that women had separate holes. Not sure how I made that hurdle, but... there it is.

966 people (at time of writing) are so ignorant about the va-jay-jay that the truth hurt them, and they downvoted the video in self-defence...
Brian Cason (2 months ago)
I’m just baffled how many people seem to be of the opinion that just because the experts don’t physically appear on the screen somehow delegitimizes the sources that are cited on screen along with their facts. Do you people not realize that (1) this is on a clip of an entire episode so there may very well be an expert who appears in another part of the episode? AND (2) “experts” are often portrayed by actors on screen but because the way the TV show frames the quote you assume the person saying it is in fact the expert when they aren’t! Yet that is somehow more credible to you than this? Pay attention next time you see an expert and ask yourself “did he say this person is actually Dr Soso?” Or did he actually say “Dr Soso writes in his blah-blah book...” before someone else appears on the screen dressed in a lab coat quoting the source material? That doesn’t make the quote or the facts any less legitimate!

Aidan Stevensonpowell (3 months ago)
Honestly, up till now, I thought of it as a permeable membrane across the opening that allowed the blood out during periods. Kinda embarassed for not knowing that. Sure I’m a dude, but still, as a self-proclaimed man of science, somewhat feel like I should have known that.
CurtMOG633 (3 months ago)

Nicolette James (3 months ago)
So does that mean I had sex wrong? Mine broke and never grew back.
Charon (1 month ago)
It doesn't grow back, but if it was never torn (was stretched before intercourse which is the correct way to go about it) it will return to how it once was when not sexually active. You still have your hymen, everyone will always have their hymen unless they're born without one or got it surgically removed, but if it was "broken" it was just torn and is now different physically.

Why this episode lacks sources?! If the things I know about the hymen is a myth I don't want to replace it with other myth thinking it's valid information.
Slovenly Muse (3 months ago)
Wow, lots of strong feelings about the "human woman" joke. Yes, people, it's true. Women may not know and understand every biological detail of their anatomy, but we do understand and know what's right for our own bodies. The point is, LISTEN TO THE WOMAN YOU'RE WITH. SHE knows her sexual history and whether or not it's her first time. YOU can't tell that from the presence or absence of blood or a hymen. SHE knows if something hurts or doesn't feel good. YOU can't assume that it's "supposed to hurt because the hymen breaks" or "can't really hurt because you're doing it right" and just shrug it off. DON'T place your assumptions and preconceptions about female anatomy above the actual lived experience of the woman you are with. COMMUNICATE and listen to what works for her, and don't assume that you're the expert on her experience because you maybe know more scientific facts about female anatomy than she does. I don't care if you're a f-ing gynecologist. You haven't read the instruction manual for my body in a textbook. The only way to know for sure is to LISTEN TO HER.
Allie Nordin (3 months ago)
Why are so many idiots getting angry at that joke about her not needing to bring in an expert because she already is the closest thing to an expert on this episode, just because you don't understand the female body doesn't mean she couldn't possibly understand it more then you.

When people say women pee from their vaginas, their using the coloquial for vagina, not the scientific term.
Will Youth (3 months ago)
Virginity is like being a non-golfer. Why are we even inventing the words that describe people who have NOT done something? Isn't it more logical to call someone who has done it?
LittleBlueNerd (3 months ago)
The fact that they had “a human women” be presented as a reliable source, is bull. Even if what she says is true, dosnt mean that girls just immediately have this knowledge when they pop out of a vagina.
Nicola Heekin (3 months ago)
Wouldn't a gynecologist be an 'expert'? Heck, I'm a human woman and I have very little idea what goes on down there half the time! Our bodies are very complex, and there are some things that only a medically trained expert would know.

I love the whiny men on here complaining that women aren't the only ones who have to worry about virginity. Newsflash fellas: No one is going to murder you if you don’t have sex. Yall get made fun of because you haven't gotten laid but the minute you bone a lass her life could be ruined or, in some countries, over. Sorry, but despite coming from the same societal issue, the two aren't comparable.

When I got home, I decided to show him this lovely video and later I got a message from him thanking me for sharing it because he had *no* idea about any of this and was glad to know now.

So maybe you should be lecturing the fundamentalist Islamic nations who don’t even let women drive or leave the home without a male escort, let alone inspect their vaginas before allowing them employment?
Louis Lipp (4 months ago)
It's worth mentioning that there are several types of hymen. Some always break due to their format. There are "elastic hymens" that almost never break until, say, something big comes out that entrance. The idea of the hymen is to protect the female by helping to cover the entrance and keep it safe in there. It has a physiological benefit.

DuckyDae X (4 months ago)
The point Emily was making about being a 'Human Woman.' was a satire on the fact that women can be typically overlooked as many forms of media typically ask a male doctor instead. Which I'm not discrediting but, c'mon it's a little insulting when Emily clearly knows her own body and doesn't need a professional who doesn't have the same experiences to completely undermine her.

My mom had actually told me I couldn't use tampons since I was a virgin and the hymen blocked me from doing that, now I can show her this.
Reket11 (4 months ago)
Yes, but you should know that the 52% 'hymen after intercourse' was SOME of it still present. The study also describes 'notches or clefts' in hymens after tampon use. In other words, it can be partially broken. Now, the countries checking hymens .. they also tend to imprison or kill for leaving Islam, prohibit women from driving a car etc. So, Adam's friend is preaching to the quire here - no one in the western world puts any legal emphasis on the hymen.
