Season’s Greetings

This is what happens when you shop indiscriminately. You mix up the genres so that your avi has a hentai outfit from CryBunBun without a bouncy big-butt-n-boobs body, Goth Lolita eyes from rotten with nary an apron in sight, stripper boots from Venus Shoes, hipster hair from Monso, eye sparkles from the aesthetic acrobats of Emotional Circus, and horns (do you remember when everyone wore horns?) from an old fave, Petrichor. You think I forgot the tail but Portia is actually using it to dial Santa on his private line.

I want all the points for matching the red of Portia’s outfit with the red of her boots. You can award me in gingerbread men.

Ready to serve

I don’t have any fantasies of service submission. But Portia likes to keep her eye on the madeleines. I put this look together with discount items: I got the hair, lingerie, eyeshadow, eyelashes, and lip gloss via Fifty Linden Friday, Happy Weekend, and my favourite, SoKawaiiSundays.

I paid a pretty packet for these cuffs and collar, past gacha items by Mug, which I picked up on Marketplace. They are gorgeous creations of lace, leather, and chains. (I had to edit the cuff on Portia’s left wrist. Inworld there is no break in that chain.) This picture seems pretty tame. Until you notice the way Portia’s nipple is playing with the pointed cup of the Savannah bra.

Breath play is not safe. That’s why I like this statement from Dan Savage’s column: “What most people who are into choking want is to feel controlled,” said Mistress Matisse. “So put your hand over [their] mouth. Grab [their] hair, wrap an arm around [their] shoulder—not [their] neck—and put your other hand over [their] mouth. That should satisfy the urge.”

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.

On the prowl

You can add a photo of yourself to the Missing panel on Iso Darling’s milk carton. Portia drinks 1% at home, skim in her coffee when she’s in town, 2% when she travels. Portia pretends she doesn’t know how to say “skim” in Italian and accepts the 2% graciously. Of course right now nobody can travel. And everyone feels flummoxed trying to drink milk while masked.
You may have one more day to scoop up R2 A/D/E’s Kamari outfit at Collabor88. (This was a pricey one. 388L to get the whole outfit.) Sadly, La Malvada Mujer’s tattoo is no longer available. Perhaps you bought it in a spree at Enchantment and haven’t worn it yet.

Beauty in suffering

If you feel like this and would prefer not to, you’re a lousy masochist. For instant relief check out Chill’s free meditation sessions. Chill is hosting complimentary 10-15 min Zoom sessions every Mon, Wed + Fri at 12:30pm CDT. It’s also on IG Live every Tue, Thur, and Sun at 9am CDT, but the link for that is busted. If you enjoy seeing a lovely bottom’s distress there’s more under the cut. In addition to the nudity, you will doubtless enjoy another relaxation tip from your lovely blogger. Continue reading

LeLutka evolution (or, ooh shiny!)

I bought Erin, from LeLutka’s Evolution line, because I wanted to get in on the conversation the group was having. I played with the demo for a while, not convinced I needed a new head. (I had just made friends with Korina at Xmas time.) I bought the head because sharing the technical challenge and styling adventure made me feel less lonely. I was thrilled to kit Erin out in Glam Affair’s Adele, which is the first GA skin I have bought since the tones changed. I have watched in horror as skin after skin appeared with white highlights in more and more bizarre shapes. Adele feels like a return to the good old days when we tolerated flatness because we knew we were playing with images, not trying to look real. Erin can be used with skin appliers but she is designed to be a BOM head, which means there’s a learning curve. It starts with balking at the fact that you’re going to leave all your appliers behind. The good news is that you can wear old tattoo layers if you’re working with BOM.
It’s not like I didn’t know what all those white splotches were meant to be on GA skins. Erin is great because distracting highlights can be added via the HUD rather than drawn into the skin. Getting all the shiny and all the HD requires switching on Advanced Lighting, wearing an included facelight, and muttering incantations to your graphics card. I hope you’ll appreciate the time I spent customizing Erin. I had to get used to her out-of-the-box face and body, both of which are long and lean, before I could slider her into the gal you see here, with her cute heart-shaped face and bootier body.
Things got even slicker when I picked up This is Wrong’s shine tats for the EVO head, which are free. (They’re supposed to be an update but you can grab them even if you never bought the original.) When I first tried to use a shine tattoo I couldn’t get the effect to work. Now that I am a technical wiz I had no problem grabbing all the lights This is Wrong has to offer and turning my av into a human disco. (There are moving lights, which make different parts of the tattoo appear lit at different moments.) You probably won’t be surprised to hear that I prefer my av to look more like a library. I’ll be back to flat Erin from pic one before creators can invent pulsing freckles and fluorescent moles.
