Two virgins dating
Samira Ibrahim is the Egyptian woman who filed suit against the government, initiating public discussion of the Egyptian government's use of the testing.She said in response to the physician's acquittal, "A woman's body should not be used as a tool for intimidation, and nobody should have their dignity violated." Many spouses tend to engage in virginity tests based on the fact the hymen did not bleed after the first intercourse, leading to countless social problems in many middle-eastern countries.Such a visit did not require a visa, but as proof of her bona fides, she was required to submit to the test.
In January 1979, a woman was required by British immigration officers to undergo a virginity test when she arrived in London claiming that she was there to marry.
In Iran, Atena Farghadani was charged with "illicit sexual relations falling short of adultery" for shaking hands with her lawyer in June 2015. The tests are often done without the woman's consent.
She complained that Iranian prison officials and guards have made lewd gestures, sexual slurs and other insults to her, and went on a three-day "dry" hunger strike in September 2015 in protest of this ill-treatment. In a note written by Farghadani leaked from prison, which has been seen by Amnesty International, Farghadani says the judicial authorities took her to a medical center outside the prison on August 12, 2015 and forced her to submit to a virginity test, purportedly for the purpose of investigating the charge against her. They have drawn widespread condemnation, with critics saying they are inhumane and hurt the dignity of women.
Another form of virginity testing involves testing for laxity of vaginal muscles with fingers (the "two-finger test").
A doctor performs the test by inserting a finger into the female's vagina to check the level of vaginal laxity, which is used to determine if she is "habituated to sexual intercourse".
