Virtual Sex in Second Life

I don’t normally use this blog for things like this but there are some really good discussions going on right now .

Google the words Virtual sex (About 81,000,000 results (0.26 seconds) or even sex ( About 1,900,000,000 results (0.41 seconds)  and see the numbers. Try Sex in Second Life ( About 272,000,000 results (0.33 seconds)

Sex sells .

Half of Second Life’s 50 Most Popular Sims Now Adult-Rated: A Lesson for Second Life 2

According to Louis Platini’s Metaverse Business, a Second Life analytics company that gathers publicly accessible in-world data for its clients, here’s the top 50 most popular sims in Second Life for last month, listed by their average visitor count, unique visitor range at any given period, and the sim’s rank the previous month. In September, this listing saw a very peculiar milestone, spotted for the first time since I’ve been referring to this data:

Half of the top 50 most popular Second Life sims are Adult-rated, so designated for extremely graphic sexual and violent content.

Should LL’s ban sexual content and sexual activity for Second Life and Second Life 2.0?

Do we even care?

I am pretty much adult content but not always, I enjoy many other things in Second Life. I visit G rated sims. I never limit my SL experience to just one thing. I have never seen a problem filtering things I did not want to see. Why is it that sex in SL is such an issue?

Linden Lab Official:Teens in Second Life

The Lab has age and rating restrictions in place. This used to rattle me because I 1. do not log in to babysit children and 2. Unless the avatars are providing some form of legal ID to verify age, it is just not my problem. Let the Lab sort it out.

Every time this discussion come about I am always amazed. It’s like *OMG sex* !!! Nuuuuuu. If sex in Second Life is not your thing set your maturity ratings to G, avoid it , find a platform , any platform that has no sex and go there. :) After all it is YOUR World. You make it like you want it, yes? I never see any gasping about *OMG they are all G/PG* . Live and let live. Keep your activities legal and enjoy Your Second Life !

Tons of good dialogue going on right now and some really excellent insight from great bloggers.

Dropping some links that I’ve read and been following.
