With the rise of the religiously motivated abstinence movement in America, a greater emphasis began to be placed in some circles on maintaining virginity until marriage. Virginity was held up as a pure and sacred state which would be "spoiled" by sexual contact prior to marriage. However virginity can also be portrayed within the movement as a somewhat binary state, as people who have already had sex can become part of the abstinence movement by becoming "born again virgins." Therefore Toby is trying to convince Dawn that they can have sex (or that he can rape her) and that they can still remain "pure" in God's eye's by rededicating themselves to abstinence as 'Born again virgins" afterward. It may also be an acknlowedgement on his part that he is raping Dawn and that therefore she bears no blame for her lost "purity."It also can just be seen as a lie on the part of a young man raping a woman and attempting to assuage his guilt about it.
