Is a woman still a virgin if a man's penis only goes in a little ways?

Question:

Is one still a virgin if a man's penis head slips in the entrance of a woman's genitals but not all the way? My friend thinks a girl is still one, but I would like to be sure. Thanks for your time.

Answer:

Your friend is trying to excuse her misbehavior by making the definition of her sin so narrow that it doesn't include what she allowed to happen. In this particular case, she is claiming that she remains a virgin so long as her hymen is intact. However, she is skipping over the more important issue -- she has committed fornication. There a prior question that discusses a similar issue in detail. Rather than repeating it, please see "Am I no longer a virgin if my boyfriend touched certain areas?"
