Piotr Kopik is a multimedia artist based in Warsaw, Poland. His work encompasses installations and live performances, graphic art, animation and machinima, painting and drawing.

He is currently working on a RL/SL documentary investigating the use of avatars as prostitutes and escorts.

Although the full documentary is scheduled for release later in 2012, a trailer video is available for us to see what Piotr has in mind.

.

The documentary’s premise appears to be straightforward. Piotr, in a small non-human abstract-shaped avatar, films himself having voice sex with Second Life prostitutes. He then presents that footage to philosophers, sexologists, sociologists, writers, artists, professors and other experts for comment.

I think it is fair to say that although the commentators may well be experts in their own field, some are clearly quite naïve or unknowledgeable about Second Life. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing in itself, from a documentary point of view. However, the remarks by Grzegorz Kowalski (Visual Arts Professor) that “Avatars are asexual to me” and “No matter what you do, it will never be pornography” seem to me to be very wide of the mark. What do you think?

I noticed that some of the SL filming appears to be rather clumsy, with the camera crashing into and through avatars’ heads. If a machinima appeared on NaughtyMachinma or SLPORN containing such a basic filming error, it could quite rightly be open to criticism. I am thinking that perhaps we need to give the benefit of the doubt in this case and assume it to be a deliberate editorial technique designed to “break immersion” and therefore exaggerate and emphasis the avatar/real person relationship.

I think my biggest concern is the danger that Piotr and his pool of experts represent that class of people that I have elsewhere described as “being *in* Second Life, but not being *part* of Second Life”.

This attitude, which can be seen in many of the educationalists in SL, in the investigators and market researchers, in some artists and, indeed, even in some Linden Lab employees results in a definite disconnect between the person and their avatar; an “outsider” approach to Second Life.

I think Piotr’s documentary has the potential to be interesting and penetrating – but only if he can avoid treating the subject matter as an “observer/outsider” and actually immerse himself. If he doesn’t manage to do this then the danger is that his film will be just another muckraking lampoon of Second Life which us residents cannot and will not take seriously.

And this would be both a shame and a missed opportunity.

The jury is still out.

New: SLag Magazine

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.”

Mature machinima

While there is a lot of machinima created with Second Life and even a lot of pornographic SL pictures being published, strangely enough it doesn’t seem to be easy to find X-rated SL videos. Youtube obviously doesn’t allow hosting of these adult machinima and many porn sites only focus on RL porn. There already is a lot of CGI erotica out there, but why is it so hard to find explicite sex video’s with individually controlled avatars ? (CGI is not that).

However just as the avatar-porn-art stills production obviously has exploded the past year, I expect the same to happen with erotic and pornographic machinima the coming years.


New Flickr groups: “Machinima Erotica” + “Machinima Porn”

Since recently anybody can upload video’s at Flickr, and to encourage the creation new machinima erotica and pornography, I started this new Flickr groups: (members only)

“Machinima Erotica” flickr.com/groups/eromachinima

“Machinima Porn” flickr.com/groups/pornmachinima

If you have links to other porn machinima (and I dont mean rendered CGI porn!) from virtual worlds, add those links in comments please!

Here is a short list of  rare hardcore sex machinima’s made inworld SL. So far most of them are about shemales sex, directed & produced by ‘Avatar Vendetta’.
