Some very kinky Second Life avatar images are exposed this week at a big art festival in Amsterdam, Holland: ‘Kunstvlaai /Artpie’ !

To our surprise the electronic arts organisation Planetart selected to exhibit the slideshow of the Sexand Life Flickr group! (online access only with a Flickr account or view a Flickriver ‘safe’ selection)

So if you are anywhere near Amsterdam: Please check it out yourself at the center of the Gashouder dome. This nine day art fair closes sundaynight may 23rd! Of course there is a lot more cool stuff to see and experience.

Videogames: ‘Utterly barren of SEX’?

Posted in cyber, GAMES, LIFE, MEDIA, SEXUALITY, SOCIETY, TECHNOLOGY, VIRTUAL WORLDS with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 2010/02/03 by Wekomen Klaar

The PC Gaming blog  Rock, Paper Shotgun published an Interesting article: (found via Blondin Linden in the SL Zindra Alliance Group)

“RPS In Second Life: An Orgasmic Bellowing”

Pay any attention to that irreverent, smiling spectre we call technology journalism and you’ll probably know two things about Second Life. ONE: That it’s very successful, and the millions of dollars it rakes in are shared with its dashing player entrepreneurs. TWO: That it’s full of sex.”


“The sex, all those animations, the sound packs full of squeaks and moans, the skanky clothes and variety of downloadable erections, they all exist to augment Second Life.”

Second Life’s sex trade doesn’t represent players creating pornography within the framework of the game. More often than not, it’s simply another part of socialising that players want to simulate. Players will meet, chat, romance one another over however many days or minutes, and then have sex.”

“it’s staggering the degree to which the games industry seems to be laughing these people off as a bunch of hilarious perverts. The money being spent on sex here is a grand shout out from the Second Life community, an orgasmic bellowing from the rooftops that shouldn’t be ignored. It says two things: One, many gamers are tremendously unafraid of virtual sex and/or virtual romance. Two, they’re willing to pay for it.”


“The West doesn’t shy away from romantic novels, sexy TV shows or porn movies, and Second Life is a naked statement that we have no problem with digital eroticism. So why are we being trounced on the erotic videogame front?


In 15 years the idea that the Western videogames industry was once utterly barren of sex games will be a mad thought.

Still relevant to this topic, an article by Vint Valken from november 2008:

Doing Pixel Boom Boom – not limited to SL?

“I’m sure ‘pixel boom boom’ – an euphemism for ‘3D virtual sex’ or whomever you wish to call it – happens in other Virtual Worlds and MMORPG’s too. Yet, Second Life gets always targeted by the RL press. Of course, you have ‘dedicated’ virtual worlds such as the Red Light Center, but I wonder, do World of Warcraft, the Sims, Entropia Universe, … avatars have a sex life too? And all the necessary bits & pieces to make ‘virtual intercourse’ a true ‘immersive experience’? :D”

PORNOSOPHY: A TWO WEEK ART FESTIVAL OF PORNOGRAPHY, CREATIVITY AND CONTROVERSY

The Pornosophy Closing Party is over and what a succesfull groundbreaking art show the Pornosophy Freak Showroom was! Also it could not have ended any better then it did, with a surprise visit from V.I.A. (Very Important Avatar), Philip Linden himself!

~

We tweeted a selection of local chat quotes from the final hours of the Pornosophy Closing Party. Please check it out @ twitter.com/sexandlife (with event staff permission. In case you see yourself rather not published this way on the web, we will delete it of course)

GROUP CYBER SEX

The most hawt action was not logged at all, but was going on in the voicechat channels! A truly international kinky crowd, with all kinds of exotic accents, were having a real fun Celebration of Cybersex with ‘dirty talk’ on their mic’s! While their avatars were  going wild on the dancefloor at the live DJ tunes. (and in some secret corners of the carnival ground…)

SECOND LIFE FOUNDER VISITS PORNOSOPHY

A historically even more significant text has just been published by Jacopo Perentias well as by  Chianera Cioc: An unedited chatlog about Sex, Drugs ‘n’ Art with no other then the Visionary Viceroy of Virtual worlds: Philip Linden! A.k.a the founder of the revolutionary free metaverse Second Life (secondlife.com)  and Linden Lab former CEO: Philip “I’m-not-building-a-game.-I’m-building-a-new-continent.”Rosedale,

[21:40] Chianera Cioc: OMG

A SURPRISE REZZ

Philip Linden arrived totally unexpected over an hour after the closure of the Pornosophy Freak Show. Fortunately the Italian Freak Showroom event organisers Loglady Loon, Jacopo Perenti and some of their staff were still online. Even though it was around 06:30 am in Italy when Philip rezzed on the ModaSL sim. They must have been exhausted after this people packed party night and these two nervwrecking weeks full of much work, excitement and controversy for the ModaSL staff! Some sponsors pulled out of the art show for ”vulgarity” arguments reasons, Chianera Cioc got banned from SL for a dayJacopo Perenti even got complete ban from  SL for more days during the exibition!

The Pornosophy Freakshow hosts kindly offered Philip an exclusive V.I.A. -tour around the closed porn-art exhibit fairground. Luckily all the amazing pornographic artworks were not de-rezzed yet!

Now the exhibition is over, all the works will also be published on the web, you can probably find them gradually

New: SLag Magazine

Posted in EROTICA, FETISH, LIFE, MEDIA, PORNO, SEXUALITY, TECHNOLOGY, Uncategorized, VIRTUAL WORLDS with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 2009/04/09 by Wekomen Klaar

The premiere issue of SLag magazine has finally been released!

Hereby I simply have to give big compliments to editor-in-chief GLAMOURAMAMA BOA and her team: For publishing such an impressive digital glossy on virtual kinkyness, for free!   Congratulations for this achievement!

On pages 11/12 there is an article by Subversive Vavoom titled: ‘SLexual Revolution’. Allthough it wouldn’t really have been neccesary to keep my name anonymous (as ‘Wekomen Klaar‘ is a pseudonym anyway), I am really pleased to see the published article quote from the email interview she did with me. I hope it encourages many people to express their sexuality creatively in a way that had not been done before in their personal lives, or in general.

“Yes definitely we are at the beginning of a new sexual revolution in general I believe. Probably sexually the most liberal virtual world Second Life does play a role in this. At Flickr proof of this can be found: Two years ago there was hardly any explicit sexual SL images on Flickr, or of any virtual world for that matter.”

“But look at the amount and average quality now. SL has certainly brought a new dimension in visualization of peoples fantasies, and brought a new level in human history for brains to connect . (brains: the most important sex-organs!) “

“You can see SL erotica slowly getting more mixed and accepted by the conventional RL erotica art / porn scenes. And I am sure some people from those scenes are discovering SL through this way and getting in on it out of curiosity and are adding their individual creativity. I am sure SL sex is already influencing RL art and porn culture. And therefore it is doing something to the minds of people, not only in SL.”

“Anyway i think whatever happens at Linden Lab, be it bankruptcy, censorship or other counteractions by external conservative forces against free sexual expression, “the genie is too much out of the closet already” for this new sexual revolution to be totally dependent on SL I hope.”
