Title: Second Life - Naturism in the virtual world.
Post by: Brendarella 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 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 and fashion.

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?

@newbie If you need any help figuring things out, I can def help with that. That wasn't the problem. "I had played SL for several years and it just got boring for me. The only reason I still keep my account is because that I have purchased many things in there. At the prime of my SL life, I was an admin for several groups and land security for the biggest dragon sim there was.

Post by: newbie on June 01, 2017, 11:10:01 pm
You don't have to spend a lot of money - but like with most things in life, money makes things better.

So far, I've spent about $50 on custom skins, clothes, shapes, hair, gestures, and accessories.  I wouldn't lay out that kind of money routinely tho.  But I don't mind spending a little to get my avatar the way I want it.

But, a lot of what I have can be earned in the game (or found) but spending money is easier and faster.  I've looked into land and housing or renting an apartment but all of that is a monthly fee or would require my character to work.  That's too much like real life so I'll just let her evaporate at the end of her adventures.

None of SL is a substitute for real life but to me, it's a bit like my doll collection.  I get dolls, customize them, dress them in all kinds of clothing, make their hair pretty, and sit them on a shelf to look at them.  What purpose does that serve?  None, really.  It's a complete waste of time other than the fact that I enjoy doing it.  A little piece of my heart goes into my dolls and my online avatars.

And SL is WAY cheaper than dolls and actual doll clothes!

ok. you convinced me i'm going to give it a try (when i have some spare time) - then we'll see if it's something for me  :cheesy:

I have met many real life naturists in Second Life and they've told me that they get a lot from living a virtual naturist lifestyle. Sometimes, someone tells me aren't able to experience real naturism because they are disabled or embarrassed or that they still haven't got up the courage to try it out for real.

Second Life naturism isn't meant to replace real life naturism.  Nor is it a substitute. It's just another way for people to express their naturist feelings

If you click on Profile and goto Account Settings you can look in the notifications portion and check the box if you want notifications sent to you. If you routinely check it but don't want any notifications sent to you then you just have to click "Show Unread posts since last visit" or "show new replies to your posts" up at that top. Unless viewing daily or bi-daily, these can start to get quite a few post in them.

It's also encouraged to make yourself more known and to post outside of just one topic as well.

Is the nudity part of the base game or does it require a third party mod?

User-generated content is a big part of the game and drives the in-game economy. Degrees of freedom are pretty large, so nude content is easily encountered.

Geographical areas are designated as General, Mature and Adult. You can set your viewer to the appropriate level so you as you explore, you only encounter suitable stuff.

For example, if you went into a naturist resort in Second Life, you may encounter naked people. But if you go to a public outdoor concert, on a sim with a classification of General, you won't.

Some people have no real opportunity to experience naturism.
Some people don't feel confident enough to plunge in to a naturist experience. 
Some people may have have strict parents or they live in a community or even a religion that misunderstands and discourages such a practice as naturism.
Some people may have familiy responsibilities that they consider hinders their desire to try naturism.
Some people may work in areas such as the entertainment industry or appear in the public eye.
Some people may be severely disabled or bed-ridden and their only escape to naturism is by means of virtual reality.

These are a few examples I just thought of, I'm sure there are plenty more.

Of course, the real world experience will always be superior to any virtual experience, but that doesn't invalidate the virtual one. Many people enjoy both worlds.

if you're lucky enough to be able to participate in real life naturism, please allow those that aren't so lucky to enjoy some aspects of it.

Ann, if you’re looking for a place where you can be naked in the cyber world without any worries then Second Live is exactly where that can happen. That’s what it is that is all about!

If you want to try it out it’s very easy and it’s free.   https://secondlife.com

The only problem is that you have to learn how to control what you see on the screen using your mouse and keyboard. And it only really works on a laptop or a desktop computer.   You won’t be able to run this on your smartphone.

But there are real genuine naturist groups and places in there for everyone to enjoy.

If you have a half-decent laptop and a reasonable internet connection, the rest is free.  You can visit the website and download the Second Life viewer, which is the "window" through which you interact with the virtual world...  And off you go. From then on, it's just fun and practice.

The group has thousands of members.  Many of them are occasional visitors but a few hundred are residents of the tropical isles and have built their homes there.

Hi DaniSnow. Yes, there are a few folks from the forum here who've joined Second Life.  If you send me a message with your SL name, I'll be able to contact you on there and show you around.

To get in to Second Life you just need to download and install something called the SL viewer.  This is your eyes and hands while you're in the simulation. It's like watching a film starring yourself. Every person you meet in Second Life is a real person. There's no cost for any of this.
Everything you need to know can be found here.   https://secondlife.com

Yea, last time i was in SL there weren't a lot of people either, don't know if SL lost its popularity or maybe it depends on people in different time zones.
Maybe we can try to arrange a "meeting" there for the forum members.
If i remember correctly when you add someone as a friend you can get a notification when he comes online and i think you can also send them messages offline

Second Life is HUGE. And it's international. Just because you turn up to a single place and there's no one there doesn't mean it's dead.  it probably means you’ve turned up at the wrong place at the wrong time. That’s pretty much like real life. If you turn up at 3 o’clock in the morning to a Club meeting, only to find you’re not only at the wrong time, but in the wrong country, then you can expect not to see anyone.

Imagine if a flying saucer landed and the occupants got out, went to the first person they met and said “where do we go for the nudist camp?“, It would be pretty much the same reaction that you’d get if you approach someone in Second Life and asked them the same question. 
There are usually around 65,000 people logged in Second Life  at any one time. And they’re spread over an area which is equivalent to the size of a small continent. There are many diverse different factions who are enjoying themselves. They fly, sail, surf, race cars, hunt vampires, dock their starships in space stations, socialise, build things, and Role-Play (https://secondlife.com/destinations/roleplay), And some of them also do a lot of naughty sexy things. None of these have anything to do with naturism. But there are some areas where naturism is not only allowed but encouraged. Most “naturist camps” in SL are little more than excuses to have sex. But there are some genuine places in there, you just have to find them. And the Eden Naturist Estate is one of the largest of it’s kind. It’s a place where many of the Second Life residents come to make their home and live in a clothes free environment. They don’t do it all the time, just like in real life. Just remember, most genuine places in Second Life are communities, not “camps“.
Title: Re: Second Life - Naturism in the virtual world.
Post by: Brendarella on December 04, 2019, 03:37:46 pm
The other thing to remember is that Second Life is not a game as such. You don’t “play“ it. There is no objective or goal except those that you set for yourself. I once heard someone say “if you want to know how to play Second Life, you must be doing it wrong“.

Here's something.  The one on the left is Melanie.  I met her on another forum a few weeks ago and we got chatting.  She said she'd never been to a naturist resort because she hadn't had the nerve. I told her she might benefit from trying out naturism virtually, in Second Life.  She had never heard of it. 

She soon got the hang of how to control her avatar and within a couple of weeks of joining, she and I were taking a boat out and sailing the tropical waters around the naturist estate of Eden. That's how easy it is.  She says she now feels much more confident about it and is even considering trying out the real thing. 

If you have any questions for her, you can ask her yourself on the forum where I met her.  I can give you the details.

Several folks from on here contacted me and asked for more info about getting into the virtual world of Second Life and visiting a naturist estate there.  Well, Blake Skies from IYNO did more than that! He joined Second Life a few weeks ago and he's already the proud owner of a beautiful home on his own tropical isle in The Eden Naturist Estate - and is even flying his own planes.   

I met up with him and he showed me around his superb house.

We went for a flight across some of the islands from Naturopolis to Tortuga airport

and then he flew me back in his amazing sea plane.

We also went to The Pink Pussy, a popular nightclub in a futuristic holodeck.

Blake is a lovely guy and it was a pleasure to meet up with him "in the flesh".
If anyone else from here is interested in joining us, Blake and I would love to meet up with you. It's all free and we have great fun.

(https://i.postimg.cc/QBg78cC6/Snapshot-008.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/QBg78cC6)

He invited my friend, Melanie and myself over to his naturist home and came to pick us up in his hovercraft!

(https://i.postimg.cc/G9J8gZdn/Blake-at-Swift-11.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/G9J8gZdn)

But as he was about to fly away, I flagged him down...

I told him we may be geting some new INYO members to visit us in Second Life at last, but warned him not to get too excited...
