1 in 200 mothers reports a “virgin” birth

Wow, now that’s some hardcore hamstering.  Sadly, I’m sure the number of men reported as the actual father (vs the reported father being the ACTUAL father) is much higher:

One VERY interesting corollary to the study is this quote:

Besides “virgin pregnancy,” the study also detected hundreds of “born again virgins” who said in the first round of the survey that they had lost their virginity, yet later indicated they were virgins. The survey included more than 7,800 women who were surveyed in 1995 and again in 2008-2009.
