Stop the Virgin Myth

Niels-Ole Rasmussen, Denmark, 2019

88 min.Series (documentary)

#Stop the virgin myth
The virgin membrane is covering the entrance to the vagina. Like a biological chastity belt this membrane protect her innocence. At the first intercourse it breaks and stains the sheets in red.

This is the story we all have known for centuries. There is just one problem: There is no membrane. Nothing must break and bleed during the first intercourse. Its just a myth, a myth that can be extremely harmful to young women of the world.

Now Özlem Cekic attacks the myth. She seeks the truth about women; she shows us the dire consequences of this old myth, and she put action behind word – #Stop The Virgin Myth is tv that changes the world.
