Second Life - Naturism in the virtual world.
« on: May 11, 2017, 01:15:48 pm »
Second Life is a massive, online virtual world.  Think "The Sims" but behind each avatar is a real person controlling what they say and do.  Yes, there is a Naturist movement in the virtual world of Second Life.  It gives people an opportunity to try it out in a safe environment and see how they feel without taking the plunge.

In Second Life, I'm in charge of two naturist marinas as well as over 100 privately owned residential islands.  People "live" there and login to spend quality time hanging out with their friends, sailing, flying, or just chatting around a campfire.  Some have been in SL for years, including myself. 

There's mountains, forests, oceans, rivers, town and villages to explore.  And you can make your avatar resemble anything you want, although most people try and make them look like their real life counterpart.

It takes a but of time to get used to using the controls but it's totally worth it.

Oh, and did I say, it's all completely free?

Here's a couple of photos I took recently while in the marina.

I've played around with second life a few times, unfortunately the user use the nudity for sex stuff and not real naturism, but it could be nice to "open" an island just for naturists, if anyone is up for it we can try building something nice for IYNO members
We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.

We have built this SL naturist estate to follow real naturism rules.  There's a strict set of rules that visitors and residents must follow or they are asked to leave.   So there's no open soliciting or sexual displays. It's all pretty much as you would expect to see it in a real one.   We also have a lot of members of the group who are also members or RL naturist organisations and clubs.

And to say that SL users are "in it for the sex",  well, I've heard it said that naturists are also "in it for the sex", too.  And neither statement is true.  You only get out of SL what you are willing to put in... just like real life.

There are no nude patches.  You can wear anything you want.  Or as little as you want, or just wear nothing at all. You have full control over your wardrobe.

Does anyone have realistic body proportions for their SL people? All the photos posted seem very Barbie and, the the case of the dude, over exaggerated emphasis on muscles and phallus.

Members are free to change their body shape, colour and size to whatever they want.  You can use the free Vitruvian shapes or make it look exactly like think you appear in real life, even down to the faces.   Yes, some people use the opportunity to over-exaggerate their physique with muscles and barbie-doll bodies (and yes, some people choose to larger penises and boobs than they have in real life, too)  BUT it's their choice. There's plenty of tall, short, thin, fat people in SL, too. Even pregnant ones.

YOU decided how you want to look.  And we shouldn't be about critisizing how people appear or even how they WANT to appear.

I tried this briefly before and it had potential but I played it like a video game rather than a life simulation which angered people. I think it'd be weird if everyone had barbie doll anatomy though, if I get it would you be able to talk me through the setup if I get stuck?
