The status of a kajira’s silks can refer to several thing on Gor. Most commonly such words are used to designate a girl virginity. White silk can mean a girl is a virgin, and red silk the loss of virginity and accessibility as the girl’s owner wishes.
Even a non-virgin, new to the owner’s chain, might be temporarily designated as white silk though with the simple attachment of a white silk ribbon to the girl’s collar, until her owner decides on what function the girl will perform.
For the Tribe, the passage from white to red silk is of special importance and it indicates a potential for change in both physical, as well as emotional matters.
John Norman speaks of blood auctions conducted by the Free in which a girl surrenders her virginity.
In the jungles we have no such written basis, not even for the ownership of slaves as it is the custom amongst the Wa Ngao to own kajirae as a tribe..
So, we take literary license and create our own equivalent for these kajira.

Then I felt her, and I could not have stopped her, had I wished to do so. I was chained as she removed the white-silk ribbon from my collar. In a moment she had fastened something else there, in its place, Doubtless another ribbon, doubtless the red-silk ribbon which had been given to her earlier by Mirus. She jerked it down on the collar, snugly.—Dancers of Gor, 11:209
