Is "Virgin Complex" unique to Chinese men or not? [Copy link] 中文

Just came across an article "Paying to become 'like a virgin' in China" on msnbc.com, specifically in the "Behind the Wall" section (that's interesting.).  (URLs are not encouraged here, I was once told by the mod, so forgive me for not posting the full link.)

The argument of this feature article is quite straightforward: Despite increasingly liberal attitudes towards sex and Internet pornography, a woman's virginity is "still highly valued by many men here [in China], especially in rural areas."

It is reported one CPPCC or NPC (which one I forget) suggested Chinese girls exercise abstinency before they get married, since "hymen" is the best gift they could give to their future husbands and in-laws, although prominent sexologists like Li Yinhe strongly ridiculed the idea.

Is this "virgin complex" unique to China and East Asia (I heard men in Japan and Korea also hold a similar view)?
We are all prisoners of our own device.

Virgin Complex

As an American I can report that the "virgin complex" is pretty much universal, in that virgins are preferred but not always preferable. :-)

I remember it here about 40 years ago, now nobody gives a toss and why should they ?   

Would you really want to know how many sexual partners your intended might have had ?  I wouldn't and when it is very rarely mentioned its usually by hypocritical men who have slept around themselves.

Still a few male chauves around but they are getting fewer and fewer thankfully.
