A born-again virgin (also known as a secondary virgin or renewed virgin) is a person who, after having engaged in sexual intercourse, makes some type of commitment not to be sexually active again until marriage (or some other defined point in the future or indefinitely), whether for religious, moral, practical, or other reasons.
This term has gained some popularity among evangelical and fundamentalist Christians, who place a strong emphasis upon sexual purity and abstinence from premarital and extramarital relations.
In some Muslim cultures, sexually active females choose to undergo a hymenorrhaphy to restore their hymen and thus physically restore a measure of virginity. Another option is the artificial hymen.
