Okay to clear this up. You are not required a lap dance in order to lose your Pat Virginty
. During Hey Paddy....at your first show your ears are vigin to the CHORUS. Thus Pat spotlights the virgins...a lucky few get lap songs. But the idea is too loosen the whole crowd up, and to get your pipes tuned up.
If you are passed over for a lap song before the the CHORUS is explained, and then sing the chorus....your virginity is gone. Pat has taken it like a thief in the night.
To become a Born Again Pat Virgin you need to abstain from Pat in his many forms for a long time. Thus why Luke has left us .....he longed for his more innocent time before obsession turned into apathy.
