It's widely believed that the 'two finger test' is an accurate way of determining whether or not someone is a virgin but the procedure bears no scientific evidence.
As per the World Health Organisation, "there is no examination that can prove a girl or woman has had sex – and the appearance of girl’s or woman’s hymen cannot prove whether they have had sexual intercourse, or are sexually active or not".
In 2018, the United Nations called for an end to the tests describing them as a "medically unnecessary, and often a painful, humiliating and traumatic practice".
In fact, the hymen can be damaged through a number of natural causes such as sport while some women aren't born with the body part.
But T.I. isn't interested in the facts.
"So then they say, 'I just want you to know there are other ways besides sex that the hymen can be broken like bike riding, athletics, horseback riding, and just other forms of athletic physical activity'," he revealed.
"So I said, 'Look, doc, she don’t ride no horses, she don’t ride no bikes, she don't play no sports. Just check the hymen, please. And give me back my results expeditiously."
Responding to the now-viral story on Twitter, gynecologist Jennifer Gunter wrote a thread educating her followers on the hymen - dispelling common myths shrouding the misunderstood body part.
"The hymen is no virginity indicator, 50% of sexually active teens do not have a disrupted hymen," she tweeted. "The hymen is often very flexible."
