The opposite of virgin?

Question:I am looking for a good word that is the opposite of virgin, not like "whore" or whatnot, just the opposite of virgin (i.e. had sex at least once). what is the word for a "non-virgin"?

Answers:
I also think the word nonvirgin or non-virgin is a viable word for this context. See also: http://www.morewords.com/word/nonvirgin/...
It is used sociologically in this context too. For example see:

Don't forget that the word virgin is used in other contexts besides a sexual context and nonvirgin would be approriate in other contexts also. For instance, virgin and nonvirgin are used when describing such things as oils, cartridges and feedstocks:

non-virgin
Or a Nigriv.
Ex-virgin.
Sexual/sexually active.
Stretched
Sexless
S-l-u-t ?
Er, deflowered? or how about ex-virgin?
If you're not a virgin, you're screwed.
Used
honestly I don't believe that there's a one word summary for someone who has had sex except for non-virgin. Just like there's smokers and non-smokers. Whenever it's in the act of something I believe there's a one word depiction interpriting the act or there's two, one for each stance.

The closest thing that I can think of for someone who is depicted as having sex is "prostitute". Although I think prostitute can be an umbrella term for things outside of sex.
seal broken?
I don't think there's a word for it. When you're a virgin, you tell people you're a virgin. But when you've had sex, you tell people that you're no longer a virgin. It's that simple.
lost virginity,unvirgin,not virgin,sexually uninnocent
Experienced
Theres no good word for a person who has had sex like virgin is for those who havent other then non or ex virgin. The best descriptions are like deflowered or free to have sexual intercourse. or loss of virginity.
I will assume that your "good word" should apply to the female sex.

"Unchaste" would be one opposite word, but it sounds very old-fashioned. There was a time when "new bride" would have been used, coyly and rather indirectly, to convey the same meaning, but it doesn't work anymore.

"Experienced" is useless, since one can be quite sexually experienced without engaging in penile-vaginal intercourse.

The problem, in our time, is that an unmarried female's virginity was once closely connected to her worth; it was a concept closely connected to the totality of her being. This is no longer true.

We would want a word that more objectively and forthrightly conveys the sense that she had something that she no longer has.

I would suggest: "dehymenized." But the presence or absence of a hymen is not a reliable indicator of virginity.

According to the Wikipedia artice, "hymen" there is an English translation of a French word used in translations of the works of the Marquis de Sade: depucelate. It is derived from the French verb, d├ępuceler. "Pucelle" is French for "virgin."

So the opposite of "virgin" would be "depucelated" or "one who has been depucelated."
A virgin being someone who has not had sex, the opposite could be interpreted as someone who has sex all the time.

I guess nymphomaniac and s l u t would fit that definition.

But if you simply mean a person her has had sex, as opposed to one who has not, non-virgin, as others have stated, seems to be right or the current popular phrase, already mentioned also, sexually active.
