This work argues that, apart from being an unachievable and discriminatory cultural practice, the virginity taboo has negative and destructive implications for the social construction of honor, sexuality, romance, marriage, gender relationships, and gender roles.

The author also suggests that this practice conditions people to a passive and frustrating social existence and encourages society toward profligacy of human resources. Forsaking the utopian myth of female virginity and delinking the hymen from sexuality and honor could both improve social ills and increase productivity in this important region.
