Urvashi Rautela: Virginity should be a girl's choice
Urvashi Rautela: Virginity should be a girl's choice

Mumbai, July 18 (TIWN) Model-actress Urvashi Rautela feels there is still double standards and stigma attached to the issue of virginity among women that needs to be stopped. She adds virginity testing, which is prevalent in many parts, should be stopped, too.

Urvashi’s new film “Virgin Bhanupriya” released digitally this weekend. In the film, she plays a girl who is desperate to lose her virginity to begin with.  Asked about why virginity is a parameter for judging a women’s character, Urvashi told IANS: “India is a land of contrasts. On the one hand we are the land of Kamasutra and we have temples with erotic sculptures, and on the other hand we have the whole taboo on female virginity. We have a very conservative approach on female virginity where we take virginity as a parameter to judge a girl’s character, moral value etc. In many pockets of our country, women have to go through a virginity test before marriage.”
