Muslims on TSR, how highly do you regard virginity watch

    I would still consider myself Muslim despite having sex, drinking etc because, fundamentally, I believe in God and the 5 pillars. For me, Islam doesn't need to be more complicated than that.

    My question to you, Muslims on TSR, is: How seriously do you feel about virginity? In my (and many others') opinion(s), virginity was invented to commodify women. I'm not - by any means - a feminist, but you hear all the time about "purity" and "virgin brides" etc.

    What are your thoughts on the matter?

    I think many in today's society will be losing their virginity before marriage. I respect someone who remains one until marriage but I wouldn't look down on anyone who didn't. But I agree there is double standard amongst some guys where they expect a virgin wife but think it's fine to not be one themselves.

    What do you mean by commodify women? In Islam men are meant to remain virgin too :confused:

    I understand that, but it's much more severe for a woman to sleep with a man outside of marriage than it is for a man to sleep with a woman outside of marriage.

    When I did make the commodfiy comment, I was referring in a broader sense, i.e. even in a non-Muslim society, it's still more acceptable for a man to have sex outside of marriage.

    Thanks for your input, I was wondering how other Muslims felt on the matter. I definitely think that people can still be Muslim without following the archaisms set by the Quran/Muhammad PBUH 1500 years ago, i.e. sex, alcohol, interest, food.

    not really, both male and females shouldn't sleep around that goes for men too
    what is a muslim u should ask yourself
    a muslim is someone who follows the prophet's way of life and uses the guidance from the quran which is written by god
    u can't really be a muslim, if you ignore the prophet and the quran thats where it all comes from

    You hardly, if ever, hear women referring to virgin men as 'pure' and desiring a 'pure husband'
