The concept of female 'virginity' has often been incorrectly linked to the breaking of the hymen. Bleeding after intercourse was thought to be proof of an unbroken hymen, and thus, proof that a woman had not had sex before.

Among the Saansi community in Rajasthan, the practice of conducting virginity tests is common in certain districts, with a white thread placed upon the bride and groomâ€™s bed on the first night. The groomâ€™s family inspect the thread the next day for blood stains to confirm that the bride is a virgin. If she â€˜failsâ€™ the test, she may be obliged to pay compensation to the groomâ€™s family.
Though it sounds new in India, Amazon has been selling such products for quite a long. 'Virginity Complete Package' and 'Artificial Hymen Kit' are some of the similar products available on the online shopping site. Such products are even sold in Europe, with a German company, VirginiaCare, selling artificial hymens containing bovine blood.
