Are purity and virginity equally important for women and men?

I know the bible puts a lot of emphasis on women in particular being pure… more so than on the men.

Even though Christianity teaches that purity is a virtue for both women and men, equally, I just want to see if there is still any type of difference in the way us Catholics perceive women and men when it comes to purity.
