I've always admired what Second Life as a virtual world was capable of.. but at the same time I absolutely hate that it's basically boiled down to a way to quench your innate primal need for relationships and sex.  I can't state how much I hate that side of it.

 

Where would you go in Second Life if all the sex and dance clubs were deleted?

 

Some of the more interesting places I've been:

 

Karaoke bars where people are just trying to be funny or are actually musically talented.

Classes on Mythology, Religion, Speaking English/Spanish/French.

Learning to meditate.

Hockey/Wrestling matches

RP sims where people aren't just trying to constantly have sex with each other.

Amazing locations like Kowloon, MayFair, Insilico.. etc.

Places where real life businesses have offices.

Places where real life artists display their stuff.

If all the sex and dance clubs were deleted from SL, there'd be a mass exodus.  If, by small chance, SL were to survive such a thing, I'd hate to think of what little content would be left.  In which case, even though I go to dance clubs rather infrequently and sex clubs even less, I'd be looking for something besides SL on which to waste my time and money.

The few sex clubs and sex related places, what I have visited out of curiosity, I have found very boring, laughable and silly. Dancing places where there is good music and good dance animations are fun to visit with good friend.  It can be very relaxing and sensual. I would miss dancing places if they were gone.

What else there is? Let's see, some of favourite things to do are:

• Sailing. One can see regions with new eyes while doing that. There are multitude of beautiful regions to be reached by water ways. I love it.

• Flying slowly with helicopter over regions. Again a new amazing view of the world below.

• Visiting amazing places what people have created. Perving peoples' profiles is good source to find many of them.

• Relaxing on some tropical island's sandy beach listening to music and forgetting everything else. Mmm...

• Live concerts. There are many not so good performers, but there are also some very excellent ones.

• Randomly exploring places where I have never been before. Amazingly there seem to always be new interesting places to be found. SL is very vast place indeed.

• When one gets a bit tired of inworld things, one can come to see "what's hot" in these forums. :matte-motes-wink-tongue:

There wouldn't be anything to do in SL if all sex & dance clubs were deleted, cuz there wouldnt be any SL. Even if you & I don't care about SL sex its the only or main thing so many others care about that SL would become depopulated overnite if this happened. There'd be no1 buying anything or paying rent or tier & LL would go outuv business.

Listening to other people's music, whether a live performance or a DJ's show, is probably what I spend the bulk of my time doing here. Where there is music there is almost always dancing and socializing. If that's what you meant by 'dance clubs', deleting them would really cramp my style.

I literally can't remember the last time I was in a sex club but I agree with Dres—if they disappeared so would a whole lot of SL residents.

Getting out on the waterways is on my list of things to do, although I'll be more likely using oar or motor power, not sailing, same as in RL.

On the occaisonal times I get inworld with nothing already scheduled (my inworld time is pretty limited) I do like firing up the Destination Guide and picking a spot, often from either Strange & Mysterious or Adventure & Fantasy.

I could always go to my land in Ferguson.  If not there, I have a spot in Samoa.  Then again, I put a cute little house in Brown that I need to furnish.  Then there's my place in Ukanipo.  If none of those fit me, I have my sim, Morbidette. (

.... Why do I have all this land? (

It's your substitute raggle blanket :matte-motes-wink-tongue:

It's great to have land, real or virtual, but in virtual you never have to mow the lawn or dig out the borders.

Not much would change for me either. I'd still be exploring cool places, chatting with friends, creating, learning, running my store, tinkering in the garden, playing games, breeding rats, playing 'lets pretend', taking photos, coming up with ideas.

If SL wasn't here, I'd do it elsewhere. There are always options.

It was just an analogy so you guys would tell me places or events you've gone to that don't involve VIRTUAL SEX or DANCING ON POSE BALLS.

Well ... i dont usually dance on pose balls anymore cuz i have my own dance chim .. nonetheless music is the thing i like best about SL & usually when i'm listening to music i have my avatar dancing .. There isn't any virtual sex going on right then or there becuz the club or party is in a M rated place but you can bet there are ppl hitting on other ppl in IM & ppl pairing up & going off to where they are having slex .. The thing is even true of religious venues .. I attend Wiccan circles & Asatrur blots in SL sometimes .. & the dances afterwards .. & even there ppl are IMing one another & pairing up for casual slex or forming relationships that involve slex .. SL totally revolves around pixel sex even when it isnt apparent or obvious: builders build nice stuff that ppl want so they can impress potential or actual slex partners with it .. or so their avatar looks nice so they can attract partners .. ppl pay rent or tier so they can have private places for having slex .. I don't see why you hate virtual sex so much Chimn .. even if it isnt your thing to do its the thing that makes SL viable so w/out it you wouldnt even have SL for doing other stuff in.

I don't go to sex places very often, except when I'm in the mood to heckle. I love watching the girls who are boys who do girls etc.

But I wouldn't lose any sleep over them closing tomorrow, any more than I lose any sleep over smoking being banned from public places (and in spite of people thinking the sky would fall in and all the pubs in UK would shut down overnight once smoking was banned, relatively few have closed down since).

There's never enough time to do all in SL, and I promised myself that one day I would work through the whole of the Destination Guide, but I never even have started going through it.

There's Giant Snail Racing on Devon Dreams sims

Roller Derby (which keeps being advertised on these forums)

Women's Wrestling http://slurl.com/secondlife/Busby/62/182/73  (found while out exploring randomly the mainland - I love the mainland, never get fed up of it)

I could spend more time stalking, enjoy being made to feel seasick again on my buddy Fi's speedboat (we zoomed around the Bay City waterways)

A really great demon took me for a ride on his hoverbike around the Caledon sims, which are really special.

Photon Pink is a real challenge for a graphics card, but always cheers me up when I'm feeling blue and in need of a sugar fix.

I could tour all the coffee houses in SL, and if feeling a bit sociable, join in with a trivia quiz, or round of 'truth or dare'.

Motorbiking is always hair-raising.

Swimming in SL soothes me. I don't swim very well in RL, but I don't need the same substitute for sex in my virtual world, so it's not uppermost on my list of things to do in SL.

Music is one of main reasons I still come back to SL. It is amazing that one minute you could be at a rock club, the next feel like listening to something less heavy and go to a trance club. If clubs were gone, I would be gone. There are a lot of things to do here, yes, but music is the main driver for me, for the moods of places as well.

Music in this game to me is like listening to the radio.  I haven't listened to the radio for good music.. ever.  Pandora, yes.. since i can choose everything and they're not going to end up playing Justin Bieber or the latest mainstream rap song about doing the dougie and supamanning that ho.

There are just some activities that are way better in RL than the virtual one, such as the two you mentioned.  Since I prefer the RL version of dance clubs and sex, I wouldn't miss them if they were deleted from SL.  I would continue to use SL as a creative sandbox and for roleplaying.

There are world class DJs in SL. You may hav2 cruise the clubs to find them. Once you've found em tho .. they often have a stream thru Shoutcast .. some 24/7. I listen via Winamp. I've heard better music in or cuzuv SL than iv EVER heard on the radio .. including Pandora. Bestuv all .. no commercials !! & its all totally free ...

Well music depends on the places you go, don't like music in one place, change it or turn it off.

For me, I like the DJs, especially people that actually spin their own music, that make it. I've met couple of great ones and I enjoy the music they play. Yes, it is almost like listening to the radio, which I also like. I'm a music junkie, I like to pick what I'm listening to and in SL it is a very easy thing to do. But it isn't for everyone...

Jeanne, I have to say I don't agree with most of what I see from you (vice versa, no doubt) but on this we are in complete agreement. There is no limit to the variety of music available in Second Life. None. There are certain types of music I don't really care for and those I tend to avoid, but I love hearing new (or old) stuff here that I never hear anywhere else, especially the live music.

Within the last handful of days I've heard one fabulous live singer working with karaoke backgrounds, three live singers who accompany themselves (two guitars, one saxaphone), a live piano recital (mostly Beethoven with a break because the pianist needed to get up and feed her RL dog, who we could hear in the background) and two terrific DJ sets.

Speaking of piano recitals, I was very excited when, recently, I received a group notice for a piano recital, only to be very disappointed when I realized it was for women only (with one notable exception).  It's a shame when you have to miss out on things you'd love to do, because of your choice of avatar... but perhaps that's a discussion for another thread.

I'd still would go, or stay, where I always am, in my 1920s Berlin.

Even though it has some hanky panky and some dancing, that is just a small part of the sim.

Outside of our roleplay sim, I don't go to many other places, but if I do, they are not sex or dance places.

Virtual naughtyness is boring to me and 99.9% of all the music played in SL is not music I like.

Although to many SL is all about this kind of stuff, to many it is not.

Unfortunately SL does seem to have the reputation to just be about adult type entertainment.

If all the existing ones were deleted I'd get together with a few friends and start one, make a killing :matte-motes-nerdy:

Seriously, wth are you even asking this. Seems like what we have here is just another bunch of self righteous do-gooders who want to control what other people do and like.
Have you ever spend some serious time there as an open minded person (I don't mean the seedy places like rape sims (yes, they exist, ended up in a few accidentally that were mislabeled)? Most sex/dance sims I've been to (tbh, not an awful lot of them, maybe I got lucky) have very little sex, just a lot of flirting and chatting. What sex there is is mostly directed away from public areas.
That's true even for strip clubs where, in my experience, the strippers most often are NOT prostitutes, and will not grant anything even remotely approaching sexual favours beyond showing off their bodies and maybe blowing a few kisses.

Yes, there are brothels, escort services, and what not. Just as there are outside sl. Big difference: in sl no one is forced into it, the people working there choose to do so of their own free accord, can always turn off their computers if they don't like it.
The job isn't for me, but I won't judge anyone who chooses to engage in it.
