Biblical Limericks: Hello Nurse!

When David the king was quite old
he found that he was always cold
though cloaks were piled on
his warmth had all gone,
so his staff made a plan that was bold.

A virgin, beautiful to behold,
into King David’s bed would be rolled.
This was nothing debased,
she was perfectly chaste;
at least that’s how the story was told.

1 Kings 1: 1- 2

If she was just there to keep him warm (cough, cough) then why is the narrator so very keen to point out that she was "young" and "beautiful" and "a virgin?"
