Sex and Drugs and Rock ’n Roll in Second Life

How’s that for a catchy title, hmm? Yeah, I knew it would catch your attention!

Yep, this post is definitely NSFW: Not Safe For Work. And definitely not  for the kiddies, so hustle them outside or back to their mobile phones.

There. Are we alone now? Good. I’m going to talk about a subject that is near and dear to a lot of people’s hearts: sex. Making love. Bumping uglies. Making the beast with two backs. Or, to put it plainly, fucking.

Let’s face it: in a world where folks are free to express themselves through their creations, it didn’t take long for someone (or, more than likely, several someones) to realize that there was a market for sexual simulations—and stimulations, too.

FACT: Same-sex marriages have been available in SL ever since the idea of Partnering was introduced.Pretty neat, huh? Well, I think so! And so does my friend Fiona, who recently partnered with her pet, Serena. And they’re planning on a wedding quite soon, I think.So chalk one up for gender and sexual equality in SL!

Although I identify as bisexual in SL, my operator ( the RL human behind the avatar) is a divorced mother of 3, so I guess she’s also bi as well.

Let’s Get Down to the Nitty-Gritty

You can indeed have sex in SL. In fact, for a lot of us, that’s their raison d’etre for even being here in the first place. One-on-one, group, bestiality, orgies—you name it, you can find it in SL.

Pose-balls and Furniture

Pose-balls are just that: scripted items that control the actions and postures of your avatar.  Furniture, on the other hand, are a bit more sophisticated and offer more options than mere pose-balls. You can find them designed for plain-vanilla sex between two heterosexuals, two gay men, or two lesbians. Or multiple partners of all persuasions.

It’s just a matter of finding them. And I’m not going to give you any hints—that would give you insight to my own particular RL perversions—other than to say use the Search feature in your viewer of choice. Suffice it to say that whatever you’re looking for, you’ll probably find it in SL.

Just be sure that whatever your particular kink, it’s not in violation of SL’s TOS (Terms of Service). Specifically, DO NOT engage in sexual acts with child avatars. This can get you banned for life from SL.

It’s also not a good idea because it promotes illegal activity (depictions of child pornography), and the avatar who seems to be coming onto you might very well be part of a law enforcement sting (entrapment) operation which might result in you being arrested in RL. The best thing you can do in such situations is to report any such contact to the powers that be in SL.

Safe sex is so much more than condoms and birth control.And speaking of which, yes, you can indeed get pregnant and give birth in SL. One of the more popular ways of doing that is via Mama Allpa and its associated add-ons. You can find Mama Allpa itself in-world at their main store.

And that, my friends, is all you need to know to begin a fulfilling sex life in SL.Of course, to put things in perspective, you also know as much there is to know about the English language as did William Shakespeare….
