  1. Do the least harm possible. And keep in mind that it's not just your RL partner that is potentially affected, but your SL partner as well. Feelings will occur on both ends and even if your RL partner doesn't give two flying *****s what you do in a virtual reality world, you may very well end up causing your SL partner more harm than joy, especially if your RL partner changes their mind. There really isn't anything any of us can say to you, for that very reason, unless of course you want to massively over share to online strangers. Just consider all parties involved and do the least harm.
  2. Those are a lot of implied words that I never wrote. I'm sorry that I hurt you. I really, and sincerely am. I bet you put your entire heart, soul, and energy into your sewing patterns, and that they are absolutely a product of love to the highest degree. And that, in itself, is every bit as intelligent, graceful, and wondrous as being able to explore another human and the intricacies of sexuality. And while I imagine it probably takes you closer to 10-16 hours to finish a physical garment, that it probably took you a week+ when you were first beginning, and that time and effort is completely priceless. Definitively, my position is that sexual services are a product comparable to that, and that sexual services do not objectify the provider, freely given or in exchange for monetary value. But in the context of how Drake was framing their contentions about her price point, it felt... less than polite. I used the wrong word, but essentially it felt like they were belittling the amount of effort, energy, and creativity that sex work requires. A well made $3 mesh once made is made, and it's out in the world for consumption for at least 2-4 years before becoming outdated, and is a constant potential source of revenue with upkeep, and it seemed at the time a poor comparison to sex work which is an individual experience each time, and the formula constantly has to change to keep the potential revenue per customer. Basically, it was a comparison of mass production vs. custom order, which is--blah blah blah, ramble ramble ramble, I am sorry I used that word, I am certain each and every single mesh garment is made with the same love-creation-energy. My bad. In a different thread that you've involved yourself in that's related to the subject of asking references. It's in this same subforum.
  3. I would just do it. At best, they enjoy seeing you informed and cautious enough to ask for references. At worst, you have to explain why having references happens to be important to you in an online setting. I've personally never thought of it, but usually if I'm excited enough about someone as a top or bottom, they meet all of my friends anyways. I guess that's kind of like giving references? Vultures will always be out there and excited bottoms make easy targets. Bu hell. You could see it as kind of a service. Make it trendy to ask for references among people you know. Make fetch happen!
  4. I didn't say anything negative about creator work. ? And I'm sorry I'm the one to tell you this but purchasing time and services from a person does not make their involvement less human or personal.
  5. Why are you comparing a real person's sexual and emotional involvement to a 3 hour blender product? You're objectifying her without even paying or asking for consent. Rude. She's not asking for plus gifts, she's asking for ballpark 20k L and is willing negotiate lower. Half the price of cam models? Sounds about right from what I've seen. Especially after seeing her in game picks. If you don't understand the value of industry workers for your personal life, that's okay, dude. But she's a 7 month avatar and has indicated RL community experience with a vetting process. Perhaps if you're interested you could ask her for advice for your own vetting process. And sure? Try out being an in game industry worker. It's fun.
  6. A friend that I found by chance through RP. Real life feelings got tangled the closer we became OOC. Eventually contact was cut due to the way it was affecting us, and stupid things I did. Still miss her four years later; she touched my life in such a wonderful way, and I still harbor those happy hopes that maybe we can just be good pals at the long end of the road.
  7. FollyToBeWise sort of sold herself short. I know it's popular to heckle industry workers, but just to put it into perspective, 20,000 L / $80 a week is way on the low end for what you would expect to pay for personalized attention. If she averaged spending one hour a day per week with you, you're paying her a little over $10 an hour. People outside of SL that offer the same level of contact--basically through e-mail, text, or chat, without voice or cam--could probably get away with charging something like $50 an hour.
  8. So... I guess I'm just an anomaly because 90% of my SL friends that are women RL primarily use male avatars in game. Including the one that introduced me to the SL world to begin with. And with at least two of them, I would have never in a million years guessed until we all got on voice chat one night. Best thing? It really helped me identify just exactly how fluid my sexuality, and just how much gender appearance can affect perception of personality and attraction.
  9. I must have had signatures turned off, as well! But going to Cindy's profile is how I figured out what her store is. Kix Erotica. Good stuff in there, I especially like the lesbian pallet sofa, that particular loft chic style, but the bdsm furnuture didn't match the subtle style I'm going for.
  10. Hi friends! I'm looking to build up a bit of a private dungeon for myself, but it feels like the same things that were made 5-6 years ago are still in circulation today. Granted, I've been gone for 4 years, but I was hoping by at this point that there would be something else out there other than BH and Dutchie. So far the 'newest' and most elegant of my discoveries have been Stockholm and Lima, but their animations appear a bit dated, too. Any recommendations for places to check out?
  11. Don't lose hope! I'm actually doing this with a person I just met and an old friend, but sometimes you meet people that you just know you want to hang around with. ☺️ We bought a mainland property and everything and are house hunting at this point... hardest part is trying to find furniture with animations for 3 people beyond threesomes.
  12. I feel you big time. Transcendant relationships like that is what I feel mmos and typical networking platforms is all about. Two of the coolest cats I know are still loose friends with me through FB even though they stopped playing regularly around advent mesh. And it's such a great friendship because we can literally go without months of talking, and then all the sudden reconnect as though time never passed. But when all three of us played we were i n s e p a r a b l e.
  13. Heck, I might love them! I'll shoot you an IM in world. Real life happens and my free time is occasionally sparse, too. And honestly if I like talking to a person their lack of availability just makes me that more eager to talk to them next time they're on.
