Sex and Second Life

This site is a true reflection of my comings and goings within the virtual platform known as Second Life, it is mostly my first person recollections of anything happening. Enjoy the read and do follow and share if you liked what you found

Alcohol

We’ve all had all our moments of drinking to later that morning trying to pull ourselves together by drinking lots of water, and not being a heavy drinker myself -I think I am what you would define a social drinker-, I am left wondering if any of you have ever logged in second life with a few too many to, not only not remember anything you did or said, but to also be stuck with apologizing and cleaning after the collaterals your own drunkenness produced.

But being a social drinker myself -this I am sure is due to the neurological effects alcohol produces on people, hence aiding in shedding our inhibitions when faced with strangers-, I continue to wonder if it is really necessary to resort to alcohol when you are in-world? Most people would safely say that your in-world reality is safe, being user created and as soon as things get too intense you can always log off, but some of the effects on things you are exposed to whilst logged in, transfer all the way to your real life.

I have to admit that I did get drunk while DJing during my first second life new years, but as an excuse I was surely not the only one; I have seen people however, use all sorts of excuses when “logging irresponsibly” and do or say things that later will regret. The person under the influence is in an advantageous position though, as most of the time alcohol will help you get things out of your chest you would not dare to while sober to not only not remember you did, but leaving those you interacted with scratching their heads.

So, is alcohol and social platforms -second life more specifically- compatible?, there’s a huge grey area right there, second life is what you make of it, it is your reality and how you choose to experience it, but do remember that those avatars you interact with, have people behind the keyboard and people sadly, don’t have a log off button.

Todos hemos tenido nuestros momentos en los que hemos bebido de más para luego a la mañana siguiente intentar volver a ser nosotros mismos bebiendo mucha agua, y no siendo yo un gran bebedor -creo que me definiría como un bebedor social-, me quedo preguntandome si alguno de ustedes alguna vez se ha conectado al second life con unas copas de más, para a la mañana siguiente no sólo no recordar nada de lo que hicieste o dijiste, si no que además estás ocupado arreglando los colaterales que tu ebriedad produjo.

Pero al ser un bebedor social -esto lo explico con los efectos neuronales que el alcohol produce en las personas cuando se enfrentan a situaciones sociales con extraños-, me sigo preguntando si es realmente necesario recurrir al alcohol cuando estás conectado. La mayoría de las personas dirían con seguridad que tu realidad virtual es segura, al ser creada por los usuarios y tan pronto como las cosas se ponen demasiado intensas siempre te puedes desconectar, pero los efectos de todo a lo que eres expuesto mientras estás en la plataforma virtual, se van contigo a la vida real.

He de admitir que una vez en mi primer año nuevo en el second life, me emborraché mientras pinchaba un set, pero como excusa, no era yo el único con unas cuantas copas de más en esa fiesta; he visto a personas sin embargo, usar todo tipo de excusas al “conectarse de forma irresponsable” y hacer ó decir cosas de las que luego seguro se arrepentirán. La persona en estado de embriaguez tiene una posición ventajosa con respecto a los demás, ya que el alcohol te ayuda a sacar a la luz cosas que bajo otra circunstancias nunca harías y con la añadida ventaja de que luego no recuerdas haberlo hecho, mientras que aquellos expuestos a la verdad se quedan rascandose la cabeza con todo aquello que les dijiste.

¿Es el elcohol y las plataformas sociales -second life para ser más precisos- compatible?, esto todo está en un area gris, el second life es lo que haces de él, es tu realidad y como la experimentas depende sólo de tí, pero recuerda de que esos avatares con los que interactúas, tienen personas en el teclado y estos tristemente, no tienen botón de desconección.

Life is a series of transitions. It’s not about where you are right now. It’s about which direction you’re going. Smile, and drink a frappuccino.
