The other day I met a new member called Dannyboy at Caroline’s Swinger Mansion. He is actually a follower of Second Life Adventures and joined to meet me in “person” (virtually that is). He said “I hope this is not too creepy”. No, its not, I enjoy meeting my readers and lets face it: I use this blog to even promote the my new venture. So if anybody is thinking about meeting me In-World, don’t hesitate you are absolutely welcome to do so. Just don’t stalk me and bear in mind you might find yourself featured on this site.
The conversation turned to the subject Sex in Second Life and me being of the curious kind (female and a journalist, which makes me probably the most curious person on the grid) I started to ask questions about his very own personal sexperiences. Here is a part of the talk we talked:
Caroline Resident: Does it carry over for you into RL?
dannyboy: I mean I have a gf in rl, so all the crazy stuff I can do here doesn’t translate over but I’d say the consistency is about the same.
Caroline Resident: What I mean is, do you just role-play it or , do you actually get aroused in real or even cuming in real when doing it here?
dannyboy: Yeah I definitely get aroused, sex on here is a replacement for porn on some days. 99% of the time I’m having sex on here I’m jerking off in rl
Caroline Resident: you just said something interesting, sex here is sometimes a replacement for porn. That got me thinking about something, if that is the case then all the roleplay and emoting part is actually not that important anymore, but the animations right?
dannyboy: Correct. I do appreciate emoting and role play sometimes, but I find myself more turned on by “pixel porn” and normal dirty talk that you’d hear during sex. Plus its hard to emote while jerking off haha.
Caroline Resident: Yes, I prefer the role play bit but thats because i am a role-player, but actually sometimes I feel also like just doing it and forget about that part, but i still do it because I think its lame to the other person not to do it.
dannyboy50124: Yeah and that makes sense. Obviously the encounter will be lame if one person is putting work into emoting and the other isn’t even trying. I think everyone involved needs to find a balance though. I remember one girl i was with was a really good and enthusiastic emoter, but hers were so long I had to wait several minutes between everything she sent which kinda killed the mood for me.
From there on, I decided to try with him. I started to emote (as you do) getting out of my cloth. He actually was a good role-player as well. One thing led to the other and shortly afterwards we engaged in hot sexual role-play, more or less to this point:
As of then, we dropped the role-play part and continued with plain, interactive pixel-porn:
Role-play (emoting) is important for those initial steps. I would miss that part, building up the excitement, the banter and so on. But quite frankly, when it gets to a certain point, the role-play gets in the way and plain, straight forward animation and based sex with dirty sex talk in chat is what is required.
A question to my readers
Is role-play or emoting overrated? Whats do you prefer: sexual text base role-play or animation based pixel-porn or like me: a combination of both?
