A fleshy stone fruit that has been touted as a superfood by nutriotionists due to its high concentration of anti-oxidants and anthrocyanins, which have analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects in rats.

Sexology
A widely used, rude colloquial term for the hymen, a membranous tissue which partially covers the vaginal orifice and is traditionally a sign of virginity; however, the hymen can be broken not only by sexual intercourse, but also by tampon use, masturbation and vigourous exercise; some women are born without one.
