There is of course many ways to break this hymen, but I think everyone ealse's answers give many examples, but masterbating with wide objects that could resemble a penis are probably going to burst the hymen if you are thusting it into you hard enough.
The pain of popping usually goes with the shape of your hymen, By this i mean the opening of the hymen. The hymen is a thin tissue layer that is near the vaginal opening, sometimes it is so thin around it that you can see it, and when your cherry pops it might not hurt alot at all. The more of the vaginal opening the hymen covors, and the thicker it is, the more it will bleed and hurt.
Personally, when my boyfriend popped my cherry, it hurt, on a scale 1-10 i would say it was a 3. I had a very thin layering around the edges. But my boyfriends penis was very big so that could have been half the pain because i was alreaqdy really tight. I didnt bleed almost at all, there was only a single drop of blood from my cherry poppin.
Some hymen have very thick layering, with alot of blood running through. That could hurt very badly to break, and it would bleed alot.
I hope that helped.

xxlove4teachinxx answered Monday January 28 2008, 7:48 pm: Ok i read this on a site "having a hymen and being a virgin are not the same thing. Virginity means never having had sex. Of course, people have very different ideas of what "having sex" is, so that affects what their definition of virginity is." There is really no way to tell if you are a virgin or not..and i have heard stories that it does hurt the first time. [ xxlove4teachinxx's advice column | Ask xxlove4teachinxx A Question ]
babygirl22 answered Monday June 25 2007, 5:38 pm: OK first the hymen is a piece of skin that covers your vigina hole and it has holes in it to let out menstral fluid. When u put a tampon up there it can break also when you have sex the mans penis breaks it. when he breaks it you are not a virgin anymore. It can bleed and ya it hurts alot the first time but it will feel good after. [ babygirl22's advice column | Ask babygirl22 A Question ]

And yea that's how your gynecologist would know if you were a virgin or not. [ tcklebunni's advice column | Ask tcklebunni A Question ]
BabbiD0LL answered Friday February 24 2006, 10:46 am: Popping you cherry is your hymel, some people arent born with it. You offically dont lose yourr virginity until you have sexual intercourse. If you put a tampon in your vaginal area then your cherry will pop its like a barrier between them.
xxditzyazn10xx answered Thursday February 23 2006, 10:31 pm: okie i' ve always heard when it means to pop your cherry it means that like u know you lost your virginity or a guy either fingered you or something, now when that happens your well..crotch..lol..starts bleeding a little bit and so yeah but i really dont know if it hurts or not [ xxditzyazn10xx's advice column | Ask xxditzyazn10xx A Question ]
MummuM answered Thursday February 23 2006, 10:29 pm: The Hymen is a thin membrane that partially covers the vaginal entrance of most females at birth; although an intact hymen is sometimes erroneously thought to prove virginity, it can actually be broken by many activities besides intercourse, such as; riding a bike, inserting a tampon, horse back riding, getting fingered, etc. Many people are under the impression that the hymen is located within the vagina. It is not. It's part of the vulva, the external genital organs. It's located outside the vagina.
BrittyP5 answered Thursday February 23 2006, 8:48 pm: It means when a boy has sex with you and he rips this piece of thin skin up in a girls vagina. Yes, sometimes. Yes the Gyno. can tell because if that skin is ripped or not. [ BrittyP5's advice column | Ask BrittyP5 A Question ]
Cj answered Thursday February 23 2006, 6:42 pm: it is a thin membrane that is up there. poppin your cherrs is when it breaks, burts, rips, or whatever.
it could happen from riding a horse, climbing trees, sports (ballet even), and or by having sex or masturbating. yes, mastubating is putting something up there.
It is traditionally a way of telling if one is a virgin or not. it will be broken if she had sex before.
when it breaks, it bleeds a bit, so men would have sex with thier wives on thier wedding night on a white sheet. If blood stains are found on the sheet afterwards, that means it was a virgin.
It even usually works if it was previously broken doing something aother than sex (or masturbation.) cause only a piece of it breaks when you break it climbing or riding. it will finish breaking on the wedding night and will still bleed.
don't worry, it is supposed to be rare to break without something going up and breaking it. and it shouldn't hurt.
Oh yeah, tampons might mess with it though. [ Cj's advice column | Ask Cj A Question ]
xomegaroni answered Thursday February 23 2006, 6:36 pm: ok it basically is when your 'hymen' tears er w/e. i never had sex er anything, but i know a lot of girls get it torn from riding a horse, playing sports, etc. i don't think you can feel it & it probably is difficult to tell if you're a virgin er not by it since you can tear it many different ways.
