Filed under: Second Life — Richard @ 1:34 pm


Amy and I couldn’t find a community of like minded people where we live, so we decided to experiment with Second Life to see what we could find there.  Megan seemed to have had very satisfactory experiences in her time there, so I thought that it might work for us as well.

What I had in mind was a few D/s minded people - maybe a bit kinky, maybe not, who knows.  Hopefully some people interested in photography, ideally passionate about it.  Building a community takes time, and my initial building in Second Life was an art gallery, where I could display photography and other works of art.

A peaceful, sedate appreciation what that world has to offer.

An idea whose time has probably come, but not  for me.  As our community began to grow, I could quickly see that a quiet art gallery wasn’t going to be a compelling place to entertain the people we were getting to know.

So I smashed it.

Late one night while Amy slept I went in and  tore everything down.  Everything.  Every single object of the 900+ I’d placed.

Such a pretty place, but not one conducive to the kind of community I wanted to be a member of.

So what have we now?

Check out the picture - That’s Amy and me pole dancing in the distance, with a shapeshifter werewolf, a vampire, and a mermaid around a fire pit while Gloria Gaynor belts out”I Will Survive” on the video screen.

Our kind of people.

Who knew?


  1. Richard you seem so serious…
    I hope you can finally grow a community you like…
    With love.

    PS : do you and amy still spend time at KoS ?

  2. I loved the art gallery, but I also really enjoy the transformation into what it has become. Thank you for building such a fun place to play.

  3. I found it difficult at best to find like minded people in SL. What we commonly found is people “pretending” to live the lifestyle. I wish you both happiness in SL. I hope you find the people we could not

  4. Hi Juli, There is definitely a lot of filtering that has to be done to meet like-minded people on SL. I was surprised by the number of vanilla people playing in what to me are clearly D/s themed sims. We had hoped to find a Gor sim to play in, but most of those seem way too rule-focused for us (Richard sees no upside to him having rules lol). We’ve met more kink friendly and sex positive people (more important to us I think than specifically D/s, M/s or D/lg couples) just randomly throughout SL rather than in D/s sims. And we have developed friendships with a few very special people who aren’t kinky, but are open and fun to be with. Come visit us! xoAmy
    PS Chantal, any place with you is a fun place to play.

  6. Wow. You guys are still going strong. It’s been so long since I visited your blog (I didn’t even know you had left blogger). I guess I have some catching up to do. I hope it is every bit as interesting as it ever was (I’ll bet it is).
    I like the pic. Makes second life look very interesting.

  7. Aw Robert, I’m sorry it didn’t work for you! Let us know when you are planning to come on again and we’ll try to be there to show you around.

    Silent Male! How great to see you again! Glad you are still around, too.
