The society and different religions have taught women that their value is in their virginity. Women have a hard time expressing their sexual freedom especially in this day and age. For men, virginity is a sign of weakness while for women, virginity is a sign of self-love and respect. A man with a large body count is deemed a hero while a woman who has a big body count is labeled loose.

Speaking on Real Talk With Tamima, Rahab Ng’ang’a a 35 year old disclosed that she was a virgin. She greatly attributes her decision to her faith even though her humble background also motivated her.
