The 'cherry' on a girl.

ok I feel like a total div asking this.. but where exactly is the cherry on a girl-- because people say 'pop the cherry' and I know what there talking about just not where it is. so please help because some sites say its just outside the vagina.. some say its deep inside. and some say it is the opening to the vagina. and others say it feels like a little bump / sack just inside your vagina that feels like its full of air.

also.. if it pops will it bleed alot. ? and.. I ddi try and work it out for myself but I have no idea.. PLEASE HELP.

  • The hymen, or "cherry" is typically right at or just inside the opening of the vagina. Its exact location and shape can vary, but it is a thin membrane of tissue that partially or sometimes almost fully covers the entrance to the vagina. It often thins and deteriorates with age, but can also be ruptured or torn with tampon use, rough physical activities causing trauma to the groin (e.g., horseback riding), or from sexual intercourse. During first sexual intercourse it may or may not still be intact, but even if it is, the hymen on some women/girls is more elastic and will stretch rather than rupture and bleed. Tearing of the hymen during first intercourse and the subsequent bleeding is "popping the cherry."


What Guys Said 6

  • It's breaking the hymen during a woman's first intercourse. There is often some bleeding when it happens, but serious bleeding is uncommon.

  • The hymen is a fold of mucous membrane which surrounds or partially covers the external vaginal opening. It forms part of the vulva, or external genitalia.A slang term is cherry, as in "losing one's cherry" to mean losing one's virginity).

    i got that from Wikipedia

  • Popping a cherry is breaking the hymen.

  • it means to break hymen

    n you don't have to have sex to break it

    stuff like tampons and horseback riding break it all the time

  • it covers the outside of the vagina. link

    • It is NOT deep inside, anyone who tells you that must have attended sex ed under president Bush.

What Girls Said 3

  • it's the hymen.

  • it means your breaking a girls hymen

    (hymen is a think layer of skin cover the outside of the vagina with a slit in it for vaginal fluids/period blood to come out)

    & when a guy 'breaks' it you bleed, there for popping the cherry(:

    oh & you can break it other ways like, strenuous activities(:

    hope I helped :D


  • It's breaking the hymen. The hymen is the crescent shaped kind of piece of thin skin that partially covers the vaginal opening. Sometimes it can be shaped differently. When you first have intercourse or even sometimes if you just use a tampon or horseride or something it stretches and will tear the hymen, which more often than not, makes it bleed. Usually it's only a bit of blood that comes- well, that's what it was like for me. It hurts a little, feels sore and kind of burns but once you're fully penetrated it's usually fine. Hope this answers your question :)
