is nudity allowed on a M rated sim

Question

  • 0

It is your sim and it is common sense not to show up to poetry readings nude. Unless it's a nude poetry reading. Ban and eject them, it is your sim.

You shouldn't have to make a sign for every possible act of stupidity.

As an afterthought, I wonder if they did not think they were nude, perhaps they were wearing clothing that was not rendering to you. It is possible and not entirely uncommon.

Nudity is not prohibited per se.  What's prohibited is public sexual conduct.  It's a little tricky.  Here's the "official" definition of what's allowed in a "Moderate" sim...

"Second Life's Moderate designation accommodates most of the non-adult activities common in Second Life. Dance clubs, bars, stores and malls, galleries, music venues, beaches, parks, and other spaces for socializing, creating, and learning all support a Moderate designation so long as they do not host publicly promoted adult activities or content and do not use adult search tags. Groups, events and classifieds that relate to this broad range of activities and themes generally should also be designated as Moderate.

Residents in these spaces should therefore expect to see a variety of themes and content. Stores that sell a range of content that includes some "sexy" clothing or objects can generally reside in Moderate rather than Adult regions. Dance clubs that feature "burlesque" acts can also generally reside in Moderate regions as long as they don't promote sexual conduct, for instance through pose balls (whether in "backrooms" or more visible spaces). However if any of these businesses uses adult-oriented search tags, the region may be categorized as Adult and blocked from appearing in non-Adult search."

The burden to stay within Moderate bounds is therefore on the landowner. You are the one who will get crossways with Linden Lab if the sim isn't within the guidelines.  If you can have a poetry reading in the nude without "promoting sexual conduct", then I guess it's OK.  As the landowner, however, if you don't think you can do that, you can make your own rule that says "On this sim, we don't allow poetry in the nude."  As a matter of fact, as the landowner of a private sim, you can make any rule that you like and eject anyone.  You don't have to post a sign, and you don't even have to have a reason.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU - she knew exactly what she was doing. I read her profile after the incident and being nude wherever she goes is what she does. She is trying to prove a point but NOT on my sim. One individual (a so called friend) said well I should have something posted. Both of you have given me confirmation of what I already knew. Thank you again. Commonsense is often lacking. She is free to do her "thing" but not on my sim.

Thank you also, Charolotte. She did know and was proving a point. Thank you for confirming what I knew. LOL

You make the rules...or, if you want, you can rule arbitrarily!

But as Charlotte says, sometimes a person will see themselves as clothed, but appear nude to others.  It's an SL glitch that can lead to a lot of confused argument.  So my advice would be to cut people a little slack, until you're sure they're really trying to push the boundaries deliberately.

Probably not the same woman, but someone like that showed up to one of our book discussions last winter. We just ignored her "attire" and she left after a while.

True enough. We were just feeling mellow and non-combative at the time. She didn't get the reaction she expected, I think.
