Is Second Life becoming more conservative when it comes to erotic expression in public?

No one really knows. So they can't give you an objective answer. The best we can do is some anecdotal personal experiences. So you have 6 or 7 data points from the 30k to 60k concurrent users on each day. That is a really small sample.

I doubt there is any good way to tell how SL is or isn't changing culture-wise. I suspect SL simply follows RL culture changes.

There are a load of sex places that are well populated.

The Sands - usually 15 to 30 people any time of day, people are talking in IM and only some times does a fun local chat get going. Usually around the striper pole. In the porn theater people are in IM or watching the video. People do hump in public at the Sands. But we are script limited there. Add my genitals, Its Not Mine, some toys, and soon I'm getting warnings I'll be ejected for too many scripts. If I do tough it out I have to deal with excessive lag. It is better to go to their place or mine or a beach or club with low lag.

oRgAsMs - Is almost always busy. Lots of newbies. People do have sex in public.

Monica's LustHouse - This has recently changed. There used to always be lots of people there. Not so many now. They do have sex in public but it is a laggy place for having sex. For a time the LMs took you to a ground location and you had to find your way up to the lounge. I think they did that to show people the rest of places available in this region. Now the old LMs take you to the lounge as they used to.

Bumrose in Eden - This is a fun place but with script limits and a requirement to have spent some money on your avatar. The later isn't enforced. People sail or motor into the island with their boats. Lots of sex going on in public when anyone is there... typically 3 to 10 and more of an SL AM time of day place.

 

 

Thank you for stating that about Lusthouse...  It has gone through so many poor changes lately is extremely unfortunate.  Even on their best days lately there are few people there, talking much less engaging in anything.  Its sad.  Was thinking the other day I wish they would just make it the same design that it was before because that is what worked.

well its funny I was in SL like in 2007 but in the 'old days' when we were all on the system avatars seemed everyone was humping like rabbits. Now that we have all the hot mesh bodies and looks, hardly nobody into that no more. May as well have a bible study class at your average 'adult' place now a days!

Back in the day (dinosaur story coming...) I was a member of a BDSM sim called The Black Rose(?). It was a community type sim with active seating and talking(texting) areas as well as a more discreet dungeon and play areas. After being there a while I was invited to a private party on the sim. I rezzed in a large room with a covered center area and a ring of tables. The covered area was set up for public sex (pose ball animal skins) and those who sat around the tables were expected (but not forced) to perform. There was a host who got the ball rolling (or the roll balling?) New couplings were encouraged. Anybody could ask or be asked by anybody (everybody) else. Because we all knew each other, or at least we're familiar to each other as regulars, it sifted out the silent statues and anonymous lurkers. It was more or less an intimate but controlled orgy. On one occasion the center area offered an S shaped love seat. two fully clothed avatars sat down and the rest of intercourse happened in chat. Very very hot. Everything was said (including cat calls and commentary) in open chat. No money was exchanged. Shy people became animals. Dommes sometimes found themselves submitting. It was a lot of fun. I suspect there are still places like this on the grid, but they are not advertised. I imagine that high quality, Intimate, public group, lasciviousness is hoarded and guarded.

back then at sexy nude beach there was underground dungeon with many different BDSM anims  and 3-12 some beds and all that.  😁Now it became more PG and now you can see just naked avatars there.

Maybe the human-centric adult places, but there is plenty of dark kinks out there in SL and some wildly active groups and places for various fetishes. I hit one place today and there were at least 20 avatars of all shapes and species, and at least four or five couples actively coupling in the open. Does this count as erotic expression? Not sure, but there are places where SLers are engaged in the activities to which you refer.

I was and still am the more bible study class type inworld SL 😉 ,  but i did see this and been there in those areas back in 2007.

The hotter the look, the more it's like a reputation hunt - TODAY.   In most  cases it's just like at "insta" and people behind the avatar try to get karma-points and followers for their reputation and with a certain number of followers they get more jobs or gifts (or more) from creators for their work with their blog activities and else.

Really like YT, FB, insta - everywhere.

 

Question to the audience here: is it possible nowadays in SL to perform successful fashion model blog work and work f.e. as an escort in SL  with the same avatar  name, still?  i'd doubt this.

...yes, i remember the days of 2004/2005/2006 were >>  an avatar  (the same avatar) << did event hosting, escorting, teaching and fashion design and was 'featured at Business Week'... 💤

More freedom of speech et cetera in ..2004? Sure.
