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…)

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
