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

SLebrities

Yes, even in the virtual world of Second Life, they exist and much like in real life, you have all kinds of celebrities: those born in a family of celebs, those who are famous by collateral -i.e. friends, partners or exes of someone famous- and those by own merit who either work in Arts and Crafts or in the entertainment industry.

But what drives a person to become a SLebrity and pursue this lifestyle? Is it the shine and glitter? is it the attention? perhaps the shows of affection and admiration from the masses is what they crave? I’ve seen people look for all sorts of things in second life, trying to compensate -or not, this also varies- for all they lack in real life but stardom is something that not only seems to be happening a lot often recently, but also becoming a trend and a lifestyle goal that would indicate personal success for some.

Those who do manage to get to a point where everyone knows who they are, by own merit or not, sometimes fall into a weird “Diva” trip I simply find amusing, which varies from extremes of the spectrum: the ones who parade around expecting personal favors and treatment in a very public fashion and those who also want that but pretend to be humble and modest. I am sorry, but the ones who truly make a difference in second life and how we experience it, are most of the time anonymous -not many people knew who was really behind the Gay Archipelago among other projects who have benefited, inspired and helped many in our community until he passed-

But then again, isn’t having a blog and a following of readers also a way to achieve stardom and public attention? -some may wonder- not really, might be for some, but for me is simply a way to inform people out there -both in-world and on the internet- willing to read me on how I experience second life and the many wonderful possibilities it offers, while trying to remove the “game” stigma this virtual reality has had, for far too long.

Si, incluso en el mundo virtual del second life, existen e igual que en la vida real, hay todo tipo de celebridades: aquellos que naces en un entorno de famosos, aquellos famosos por colateral -es decir, amigos de un famoso, exes ó  compañeros sentimentales- y aquellos por merito propio que trabajan en el mundo de las artes ó el entretenimiento.

Pero, ¿qué empuja a una persona a perseguir este estilo de vida? ¿será el brillo y glamour? ¿a lo mejor la atención? ¿las muestras de afecto por parte de las masas? He visto a personas en la plataforma buscar todo tipo de cosas, intentando compensar -ó no, esto tambien varía- por todo aquello de lo que carecen en la vida real, pero la fama y el estrellato es algo que no sólo parece estar ocurriendo muy a menudo ultimamente, pero que también parece se está convirtiendo en un modo de vida casi religioso para todos aquellos que persiguen la fama.

Aquellos que consiguen llegar a ese punto deseado en el que todo el mundo los conoce, ya sea ó no por merito propio, caen en una especie de “zona Diva” que encuentro simplemente divertida, y que cubre ambos extremos del espectro: los que quieren atención y trato especial por sien quien son y que lo piden de forma muy publica y aquellos que también lo desean, pero pretenden ser humildes. Lo siento, pero aquellos que realmente hacen la diferencia en el second life y como lo experimentamos son bastanate anónimos -no muchos sabían quién estaba dentro del proyecto de Gay Archipelago entre otros proyectos que han beneficiado a muchos en nuestra comunidad, hasta que falleció-

Pero entonces algunos se preguntarán, ¿no es el blog una forma bastante pública de buscar la atención y la fama? no en realidad, a lo mejor para algunos sí, pero en mi caso particular es una manera sencilla de informar a todo aquellos que me leen -ya sea en el second life o fuera de este- de como experimento la plataforma y de las miles de maravillosasd posibildades que ofrece, mientras intento remover el estigma de “juego” que esta realidad virtual ha tenido durante demasiado tiempo.
