Virginity only matters if you’re lighting the black flame candle to summon witches.
Actually, When people talk about “blood of a virgin”, what’s actually meant is “virgin blood”, aka blood that’s never before been used in a ritual.
Therefore, virginity doesn’t matter for anything.
*noises of comprehension and frustration that I didn’t make that connection before*
why re-use blood for a ritual. why. are the human sacrifices not coming in like they used to? please remember to conserve our resources by using blood in rituals sparingly. blood that is not mixed with other ingredients may be reused for future ritual purposes with proper preparation and storage. please recycle used blood at one of the municipally provided recycling centers throughout town and do your part to make sure that our town’s various ritual activities remain bio-friendly and sustainable.
The way I interpreted it was “virgin” as in the person had never donated/had their blood taken for a ritual before. Like, a person who survived the bloodletting once was no longer “virgin” and couldn’t be used as a blood source again.
…but Night Vale is good too.
