i masturbate and I'm a virgin. even if you "put something inside you" you will still be a virgin. I know a lot of girls equate anything entering the vaginal canal to losing virginity, but last time I checked, you can't lose your virginity to a tampon. I say go for it! chances are, if you're concerned with breaking your hymen, you can get a finger around it. just remember, you will only lose your virginity when you have intercourse.
