On Shuffle with Cindy Lee #2 - Troubleman: Heavy is the Hymen

On this episode of On Shuffle with Cindy Lee, I tackle the social construction of virginity.  T.I. recently made news about his daughter's enforced so-called “virginity checks”. I discuss the considerable fall out, touch on his daughter’s reaction to the story, and get into the responses of the medical and sexuality fields.
