Popping your cherry is perhaps the most antiquated way to describe your first experience out of all the many ways to express it (and yes, graphic).It is based on the assumption that your hymen (the thin tissue at the entrance of your vagina) breaks during intercourse, which may result in blood loss (hence the red color of the cherry).But how can you know whether or not you’ve burst your cherry?
When a woman has her first sexual encounter, some will bleed profusely, while others will not bleed at all. Both are totally normal in every way. When a woman has penetrative intercourse for the first time, she may experience bleeding as a result of her hymen straining or ripping. In females, the hymen is a small flap of skin that partially conceals the opening to the vaginal canal.
