Most Helpful Opinion

  • 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."

  • 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

  • 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 :Dbye.

  • 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 :)
