     Besides, there are so many 1980s Disco Role Play sites in SL already we don't really need another one.

    One observation..... when I DJ for people in SL who make requests for stuff from the 70's, 80's and 90's - they are the demographic that tips well........ they also tend to be SL "older" residents.

    My usual set is a mix of everything from 1981 to today; and after a while I have noticed a trend....... :-)

  2. I don't mean this answer to be snarky :-)

    Sex in SL covers a LOT of territory since SL has many residents who come here to not be constrained by the "normal".

    Sex is here and many female avatars participate in it. But that breaks several broad ways;

    Poseball sex (visual)

    Voice sex (auditory)

    Text/Cyber sex (Textual / Descriptive Relations)

    So you might get more accurate sponsors if you were clear which kind of medium you're wanting to pursue sex within.

    A word about any specific fetishes would probably help too and which specific groups  you are interested in:-) (bondage, pony girl, furries, aliens, vampires, etc)

    Also, as SL is safer for those of us leading alternative lifestyles, you will see many more overt same-avatar-sex relationships meaning that many females here are looking for females, or vice versa.

    Overall, SL is not a dedicated sex game, but it does have its erotic areas. If that's what your main drive is here, you might start in the Adult-Rated groups and on the Adult Continent.

    Have fun !

  3. Welcome Matt :-)

    The fastest way to get into Circulation is to use Search to find in world counterparts to things you like to do and then join those groups. Clubbing helps, as long as you're willing to initiate conversation yourself - my experience is that half of SL logs on and then waits for someone else to break the ice :-)

    These forums are a good place to network too, hang out here for a while and participate and pretty soon you'll have all kind of interesting people to talk to here, and in SL.

    I think in SL you are whoever you are and it shouldn't have to matter who you are in the real world.
    For example, I am an Opossum in secondlife. 
    It should be no concern to anyone else that I may not be in real life.

    Embrace your virtual Oppossum-ness!

  5. I'm always quietly amused when a particular relative-by-marriage compliments me almost every summer about how well I tan (she's very scandanavian blonde and has some issues with Race). She always is SO nice to me, and I wonder if that would continue if she saw my genetic history and found out why :-)

    Probably so, she already knows me :-) She's not hopeless.

    23-And-Me genetic testing has cause some people emotional trauma tho :-)

  6. This is an uncomfortable topic, but it needs to be aired....

    BDSM is a "thing" in SL, and way too many times would-be Masters are subject to ridicule by both those they want to take as Submissives, their current Submissives and the general public.

    The proper term for this ridicule is "Master Baiting" and it really needs to stop!

    Master Baiting can have all kinds of negative consequences in Second Life! It's hard on the hands (from all that typing), and if you Master Bait too much, it can spoil your ability to experience intimate moments when you finally find that special someone..

    So please; no Master-Baiting! Think of crochet or something else, anything to get your mind elsewhere.

    This has been part #1 of my 12 part series, each to be published as it's own individual thread.

    I would write more, but I need to go out and buy batteries.....

    Personally, I do believe in a higher power or at least an intelligence beyond conventional understanding.

    But that's the rub" "beyond conventional understanding"

    Human misinterpretation of any sort of higher-order has had all sorts of negative consequences.

    Human misappropriation of belief in a higher order has led to crusades/jihads where -everyone- claims God is on their side and where religion always seems to lead to oppression of somebody and forcing conformity to the political ruling-class's ideology.

    That sort of thing had me (in the 90's) living in a conflict zone and trying to locate mass-graves of people who were killed by other people who believed- they- had a mandate from their-God to slaughter people. In fairness, so was the Other Side.

    So, I handle organized/systemitised religion like a handful of broken glass; very carefully and without trying to get any on me.

    Second life is probably a poor choice of places to seek an audience; too many of us are here because we're fleeing the orthodoxy of real-life......

    ......and you're poaching on the Flying Spaghetti Monster's turf.......

  8. The revival of this may be indirectly my fault :-) I mentioned in another thread that sometimes people who have social interaction issues gravitate to the internet......

    Usually a good old Block handles it, but some of them are remarkably well-organized and equipped with Alts that just keep right on coming.....

    No good answer to that either as LL can't really police alts. My solution is to cultivate a thicker skin.......it's been unfun for me but better in the long run than tilting at untiltable windmills.

    I can't control the sun, but I has plenty of sunblock!

  9. If this makes anyone feel better about "elite" Para Roleplayers, I saw this today after attending a reunion of sorts on Saturday for a roleplay sim I dearly loved. I saw lots of old friends and we talked a LOT about the depressing state of RP in SL and a common theme was; "It's sad that the off-putting role play groups are the ones whose sims seem to stay funded.

    Scattered about the Reunion we had all kinds of playstyles and some very good -people-. Unfortunately, we all have real-lives that keep us from being on 20 hours a day and real-world social interactions that arm us with the ability to get along with our own species.

    I suspect a good chunk of these "Parapost Nazis" (airquotes) I hear about but rarely meet are the folks who can spend way too much time in SL and whose people/coping skills have suffered. They try to ramrod others because they just "operate differently", and let's be honest.....who has NOT noticed that the internet draws some odd personalities at times? (Include me in that "odd" type)

    The folks I reconnected with with last night were WORTH boo-hooing over, and I probably did 2 or 3 times during the event :-)

    It bothers me to see them generalized into the same "Dickish" lump as the people behaving arrogantly; these are my friends and they have not earned that. Still, I acknowledge that individual experiences me vary.

    Unfortunately, the ones who -are- causing issues can be like the Energizer Bunny.

    Life was never advertised as "fair" :-(

  10. I guess I'm on the outs with -this- group :-)

     

    01..I prefer Parapost, it just reads better. 

    02..I have never told anyone "parapost or I won't play with you". Being flexible means a wider base of people to play with.

    03..Metered combat is like inventing metered sex and both would  have one thing in common: neither are any fun to me :-)

    04..The people who evidently were so assinine about forcing people to Parapost are probably part of the Shrinking RP Community problem,, and should be slapped with a wet mackerel for poisoning the well so profoundly. Para is an option, there are degrees to Parapost (some are very laconic and livable) and it should never be mandatory and a bar to play.

    05..I'm evidently a weirdo; I adapt my style to the audience.

    Hey..we already knew I was a wierdo........

  11. I'm not sure if this crosses the line on the Advertising Ban, but I have met many fun people at Drama Libre. They only have two events a week (the big one is Saturday nights) and them theme is always a performance-artish fun gig :-) Its also a rather bohemian crowd there with Tinies, Furries, Human avatars of all types and age-ranges.

  12. Well, I don't live in Britain and have an Insane Level Fiber connection, and I have the exact same issues at sim crossings.

    I think the issue is on LLs side at the handoff between servers, but someone more hardware-savvy might have more to say on the subject.

    Unfortunately, unlike Cindy  I don't have cake - but I do have a fresh-baked Chess Pie.......
