Hello i am male of 24 years. i have read a lot about hymen but i found only what is hymen, types of hymen, how does it tear  and hymen surgery. but i did not find the role of hymen in sexual intercourse. now my questions are does tearing hymen make feeling of less tight for men? is hymen symbol of tight vagina? what is the role of hymen in sexual intercourse ? when does it tear , immediately after entering penis or during intercourse or after intercourse ? and finally is there any difference between having sex with virgin and non virgin for men?

The hymen, as you probably already know, is a thin piece of skin at the bottom and opening of a vagina. Even though a woman is a virgin it does not always mean her hymen is intact. It can be torn if she's very athletic, has inserted something in to her vagina like a tampon, and other reasons too.
When you have intercourse with a woman who is a virgin it can tear the hymen and cause some bleeding. This is completely normal.
It's true that some women have to have their hymens removed by a Dr because the skin may be too thick for intercourse.
It can make a difference to a man that has intercourse with a woman that's a virgin, or a woman that is not. That's because if you've had intercourse or have given child birth the vagina has been stretched a little where as a woman that's a virgin usually has a tight vagina.
I hope I've answered your questions. If you have any more please feel free to ask and we'll do our best to help you.

The hymen has nothing to do with tightness, the vagina will barley change. Its not like shes giving birth. I will tell you this I've been having sex for two years and if i have sex every night for a month my vagina will be SLIGHTLY looser. If i go lets say a week or two without sex it goes back to being really tight. I think it varies depending on how much sex you have and with what size of penis your penetrating with. Ive only had sex with one man. I am 17. Lost my virginity to him. He claims that it feels just the same as it did the first time, the only difference is we are a little more mature and comfortable with having sex with each other. The first time might be a nervous wreck but don't freak out stay calm.

I don't understand your question
~"and finally is there any difference between having sex with virgin and non virgin for men? "~
I'm going to answer in two different ways on what I think you are trying to ask.
If you are asking if having sex with a virgin women or non-virgin women will bring you a different experience during intercourse then my answer is, Yes. Depending on how often she has sex with other men, how long ago it was, and how big his penis was, her vagina will be slightly different than a virgins.
Note: not all virgin women are the same, both of my friends did not bleed when losing their virginity or feel any pain, meanwhile I bled for 4 days and felt extreme pain. My boyfriend's penis is only 4 to 5 inches long. I felt my vagina rip when losing my virginity.  After having sex 4 more times the pain went away and I only bled once after the first time. Now i dont bleed or feel any extreme pain other than pain from positions that hit my vaginal walls to hard.

If you are planning on having sex with a women who is not a virgin but are scared to don't sweat it. Go ahead and have sex, judging her or being paranoid you aren't going to be satisified will only make the situation worse. Treat her how you would any other girl. It won't ruin your life to have sex with her instead of a virgin. UNLESS!!!! She has a disease or STD from a partner before you! Safe sex! CONDOMS! OR Simply ask if she is clean. GOOD LUCK!

pls note the feeling of tightness during intercourse has nothing to do with the length but rather the diameter of the penis. even if its 4 or 5 inches long and the diameter is 2 inches then that would be a different story
