S in the A to Z bloggers Challenge

Second life.

my sl av although her hair goes between blonde and brown lol

I have to admit I am a Second life addict, but this wonderful world often gets a lot of bad press, the reality for a lot of people on first entering second life, is that there is sex sex sex everywhere, and although there is a lot of this, there is also a lot more, for those for who pixel erotic fun does nothing.
There are huge writers communitys on secondlife, even publishers are heading in world looking for the next publishable writer.
there is dancing and music, not all of it erotic either and many find love in world too.
you can visit hundreds of sims that have been based on real life destinations, take in awesome shows, go to the cinama and watch a whole host of movies (FOR FREE). Set up your dream home or land, create your own furniture and clothes, and all from the comfort of your own home.
I'm only touching the surface here, but there really is something for everyone, and people are producing some great and fun content in world. There are even live performances by big names, in the world of music, plays, and churches that hold real services.
a free account works the same as a paid acount, the only diffrence with the paid account is you get lindon rewards and a really bad house lol. Your much better off however simply buying your own lindons and renting a much nicer house in world and it would probably work out less, so i favour the free account personally.
so I dedicate my Blog today to all the second lifers out there.

and for your entertainment, I'll be posting some links to vids and pictures below, to give you an idea of the wonderful world of second life. be sure to watch the music vids at the end if nothing else bc they are awesome :)

second life- the online virtual world

some people like to get married in secondlife, its not a real marriage more an expression of love, but it certainly can feel real at times.

real sweet sl wedding vid

and of course kids, yes you can have kids on secondlife, for some women this is the only way they can ever have children of there own, and you can do the whole process starting with prim baby right the way through to a child avatar.
yes there are people willing to be children on secondlife, adults essentially playing children to some this might seem strange, but for some who never had a happy childhood or were abused this is a way for them to understand what it would have felt like to have loving parents.

the people delivering the baby in the vid below are actually real life midwives, so they know what their doing and make the r very realistic

  1. I have never heard of second life. It sounds kind of like World of Warcraft only more like real life. Not for me, since I have enough trouble dealing with my first life I don't need a second, but it was interesting hearing about it.

  4. I've heard of sites similar to Second Life, haven't actually checked them out though. I guess its like other games, you can escape reality for a while, right?

    And, I have an award for you at my blog, do pop over when you can. ;-))
