But how does it feel to be a virgin in your 30s and 40s? I only recently fell in love properly for the first time. He seems to accept me exactly as I am. I feel like we are soulmates. Anonymous woman, I am still a virgin because of my crippling social anxiety, possibly due to my large facial growths.
The Russian girls whose hair is used to make 'virgin' hair extensions
An explosion in the popularity of hair extensions - fuelled by celebrities like Beyonce, Kim Kardashian and Victoria Beckham - has seen huge numbers of women and teenagers across Russia selling their locks for a relative pittance to feed a booming industry in human hair. In an exclusive investigation, MailOnline has followed the path the hair from the heads of struggling Russian women and children, through the treating and processing plants in tyrannical Uzbekistan and war-ravaged Ukraine, before it is sold to Western women in upmarket salons in Britain and the US. Daria said she 'almost burst into tears' when she sold her hair.
She chopped off her long black curls, traded in her dress for her father's baggy trousers, armed herself with a hunting rifle and vowed to forsake marriage, children and sex. Had she been born in Albania today, says the year-old sworn virgin, who made an oath of celibacy in return for the right to live and rule her family as a man, she would choose womanhood. Sworn virgins became the patriarchs of their families, with all the trappings of male authority, by swearing to remain virgins for the rest of their lives.
