Not Having Much Luck With the Ladies/Men? Get a 2nd Sex Life!
Monday. 2.12.07 4:57 pm
One of the many computer games that I like to play is "Second Life", a massively-multiplayer online game. Basically, the idea behind it is that you can do anything you want in the SL world. You can make your own clothes, build your own house, construct your own car, run your own business, and just about anything else that you can think of. If you're good at it, you can sell what you make and use the money to buy things from other players, or trade in the game credits for real money. Or, if you're not good at it, you can spend your own real money to buy in-game credits.
What a glorious concept! A whole new level of human communication and experience, achieved through the wonders of the world-wide-web! Just imagine all of the possibilities offered by such an interactive world!
Indeed, people have thrown the full force of their imaginations into it, and come up with some very interesting creations and venues. For example, people have created genitalia-shapes to attach to their waists in-game. Oh, and beds that animate two players in sexual positions and motions. And stripclubs! Lots and lots of stripclubs.
In fact, the strip club, gambling and escort service markets probably make up the majority of the SL economy. When I looked for a job in-game, it was almost impossible to find any non-sexual paid positions among the multitude of "HOT GIRLS NEEDED NOW!" and "BIG BOOBS CASINO IS NOW HIRING ESCORTS DANCERS AND OTHER GENERIC DEMEANING POSITIONS" advertisements. Of course, my male gender didn't help much, because the truth is that most of people who attend these clubs (and probably a few of the women who dance in them) are actually guys.
Yeah, humanity took the unlimited potential of this new frontier and basically... well, we basically screwed it... in the most literal sense of the word. It kind of makes you wonder what the world would be like if people really had that kind of creative power in real life.
Anyway, lecherous perversions aside, I elected not to run my game character through an amateur sex change, although those $5/hour stripper jobs (plus tips!) were certainly tempting. Instead, I opened up a sunglasses store (no, I'm not joking). And surprisingly, despite their complete lack of sexual usefulness, the shades actually seem to be selling pretty well.
Perhaps there's hope for humanity after all.
Thank you, that is all.
PS: If you want to join Second Life, its free here (and yeah, I'll get a few points as you're referrer). I'm "Kadre North" in game, drop me a line and I'll help you get started.

I've never tried Second Life but I've certainly heard about it....
Don't know what my parents would do if they saw me playing a game with stripclubsin it, but I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be good.

That's why I stopped playing the Sims. Spent all that time making people fall in love with me and what did I get? A bit of tongue action.
WHERE WERE THE ONE NIGHT STANDS, I ASK YOU?!!
