Make Pride

I’m marking Pride month with every celebratory heart in my inventory. Pride has expanded beyond the gay male community to represent multiple gender and sexual communities. This year I learned that the kink community is not friendly to asexuals. It’s great to see virtual rope classes that are dedicated to “LGBTQ” students. But where does that leave the I and the A students? The online asexual munch listed on FetLife consistently drew only two or three RSVPs. A recent Dating Kinky event on asexuality was canceled and has not been rescheduled. I like to joke that an asexual event will only work if it’s geared towards their allies. If the allies show up a few of us ace-types can sneak in. Read “Making Space for Ace (Asexuals) at Your Sex and Kink Parties.”

See you on the beach with this bag, a gift from Belle Epoque at Shop & Hop, where merchants are celebrating SL18B as well as Pride. My av’s hair is Mina’s gift at Shop & Hop. Limos below.

Going nowhere slow

In December of 2020 I decided that I was tired of seeing female tops and bottoms wearing almost nothing. Enough with the flesh, I thought. I pumped out two solidly clad mistresses but lost steam before I got to this submissive. Believe it or not, I have been hobbling around the grid in ballet boots and straitjacket for more than five months.

The Duchesse boots by Voluptas Virtualis are gorgeous sleek treats, the first high-quality boot I’ve seen in 14 years inworld. The fat pack is affordable, so you can play with colour combos until your top cries red. The boots come in matte and glossy versions. Sadly, Faina Cortes has closed her inworld store, La Malvada Mujer, but you can find goods like the Rhea tattoo on Marketplace.

The highly detailed straitjacket—with the lovely name of Sealed Entity—is by CerberusXing. It comes with a bloody version. There is also a male version.

This pic gets closer to the feeling of fearful anticipation I’d like to experience in the dungeon. It’s too dark to be a fashion photo but too static to capture the energy of a scene, so it’s not winning any awards from kinksters or fashionistas over at Flickr. It is, however, bigger, so go savor the shadows. Thank you to Twizsted Cynaiade, who helped me find the legacy Windlight I used for this, my first shoot with the souped-up environment settings.

Another thoroughly modern mistress

I quarantined to see my mother, who has dementia and who I haven’t seen since March. That meant daily anxiety miraculously cured enough by clonazepam that I stopped thinking about throwing myself off the balcony. I didn’t have a problem not leaving the rented apartment for 14 days. I did have a problem functioning. Things are only marginally better now. I can no longer stand to go for the walks that have sustained me thus far through COVID. I am just too discouraged and aimless.

Luckily, I managed one day to escape to SL, where I shot another of my modern mistresses. Yes it’s possible to top without wearing only straps and heels! For those of you who do not possess a bio-cock, Abrasive’s inexpensive strap-on fat pack allows you to change colours of the panties and the prick. I have to say that none of the colors looks that appealing in darkness. Experiment with all the lights on!

I find this Zenith top (and panties not shown) incredibly sexy. It’s made of a very fine translucent and oh-so-touchable material. Neither it nor the loose harness (that can be worn alone) is constricting. I’m a rope top so I understand the need to move in my outfits. Sexy is not about what we show but what we don’t show. The body is there and it’s almost within reach. Unless one has to be a good boy or girl or non-binary bottom and NOT TOUCH.

Winter is always a good time to start with some sensation play.

I want to be her

I stopped blogging kinky outfits because of the glut of hyper-sexualized heteronormative outfits I was seeing everywhere on the grid. 50 Shades of Grey must have sold many more copies than I thought. Delicate-looking lingerie with plenty of straps was feeling v. lite, like bedroom bondage babewear. The sight of thongs made from pearls bound to slide up one’s hoohaw had me worried about realism.

Happily, I found the Pretzel lingerie and straps from Vinyl, which look solid, comfortably contemporary. There is no underwire in that bra, no big bazooms boasting soft power. If not perfectly non-binary, the outfit at least swings butch with the right pair of practical boots from Asteroid Box. They are perfect for stomping and a bootblack’s dream. The semi-concealed knife could work well for fear play. C’est la vie’s wool over-the-knee socks keep cold dungeon air at bay and aren’t going to tear during a scene.

And then there’s Moon’s Noeky hair with feathery bangs. In the 1940s, my paternal grandmother threatened to disown her daughter when she got her hair cut in bangs. Because only the bad girls wore bangs on the silver screen.

LOTD at last

I am becoming a Look of the Day blogger. The looks are going to be varied because Portia’s style is eclectic. One day she’s a lazy space-warrior. Today she’s a Loli lite and a lot uptight in her establishment pinstripe dress by Pixicat. There’s actually going to be a lot of black in the coming days but not a lot of flesh.
I love this skin from It Girls, so much so that I didn’t add a lippy, just colourful brows and greyish liner, group gifts from the fabulous Faina Cortes of La Malvada Mujer. Honestly, adding a lippy is not easy. Either the lipstick doesn’t cover the lower lip or it makes the mouth wholly round, killing the cute v-shape in the top lip. The Rain hair from Tableau Vivant comes with a dry version but I figured it’s okay for one part of Portia’s body to be wet and the rest dry. This isn’t after all Real Life.

Cheapskate

I have a confession to make. I spend my weekend mornings happily shopping the sales, picking up enough cheap stuffs to compile and style a look. I’m talking about Fifty Linden Friday, which yielded the delectable CURELESS tattoos worn here, The Saturday Sale, Happy Weekend. Sometimes I’ll spy something from Wanderlust Weekend, which is aimed at role players. My fave is So Kawaii Sunday, which is like a vein of cute and sexy gold. In this photo Portia is sporting 8 steals. Thanks to these sales I’ve been able to experiment with skins from Pyscho Pills, which Portia is wearing with green hair, and Heaux, which Portia is wearing with a fetching fascinator. Because the skin is 75 L at most, paying for the body to match the tone feels like a sweet deal. These newer skin lines are doing wonderful work for LeLutka Evo.
I loved slipping on Wen, a fascinator with choker (not shown) and delicate orbits. The earrings from Hate Me and Eat Me are so cool that I used them again for my green-haired girl. The fatpack is only 150 L at Lybra. I learned to do a thing where I can make Portia’s eyes glossy! These are a gift from La Malvada Mujer. Faina Cortes makes excellently odd eyes.
It’s hard to believe that we’re back to layers. I saved all of mine. They aren’t high-def, but I was pleased with my pale-green tinted Noh brows, an oldie from [CX]. Portia’s hair by Doe is the fabulous Kraken pack.

Halloween dreamed

WordPress won’t let me use the old editor so I have no idea how to share all the
beautifully scary ideas I have floating around in my head.
I gave up on posting this a few days before Halloween because WordPress
wouldn’t let me edit or publish what I was able to toss together.
I’m trying out Safari now in the hope that it will work.
If this works you will be able to read me say “I hope you had a lovely Halloween.
Don’t hate me for having no control over line spacing.”

I didn’t know…

…my av could look this cute. I’ve long admired this kind of Asian face with a long nose. I imagined that only the most skilled manipulator of at least five factors could get this look. Turns out all I needed was the Usagi skin in icecream from Psycho Pills with the shape included. Remember those crazy days when we couldn’t look like the picture on the box?!
This is the time of year when all the creators get their bikinis out on the shelves. I figured I’d also pretend that we are not yet faced with the ugly kale and chrysanthemums of fall.
