Xaara and Alanis Gallery

When visiting one of the SM-Clubs (Stand & Model) what we do quite often to chat and chill, we also read profiles. In one of these profiles Jenny came across a gallery and gave me a hint to have a look as she knows that I love to see art and to dicover places I haven’t been before. That is how I came to Alanis Gallery. It is quite a surprise that I haven’t been there in all the years that I’m already in Second Life.

“Established since 2008, Alanis Gallery Sensual Images in Xaara, is a showcase for carefully selected original works by RL Artists with exclusive rights in SL, many with a D/s theme.  Original RL photographs by Sylvia Fitzpatrick (which explore, both figuratively and conceptually, the submissive female, fetish and her local landscape).” And it is really huge (!). I like that you can teleport around between the different exhibitions and you’ll need it in order not to get lost in the gallery. The pictures are great, of course I don’t like them all but the bondage pictures I saw from several artist were really good. You can buy the pictures to decorate your SL home. Here are just 2 little teasers from Alanis gallery.

Outside of the building I didn’t expect much but there is much more. Xaara is also a bdsm community and has a lot to offer besides Alanis Gallery.
Xaara is “a Mediterranean style resort full of friendly people, beautiful art galleries, surprising shops and entertaining events and activities.” I roamed around and found that there are 6 private skyboxes that are free to use for a limited amout of time and I visited some ot them. They are at least a great hideaway to retreat to with a sub/slave or with Mistress Jenny. And there are also public play spaces for example a shibari room.

I really was surprised that I haven’t been here before! While I was exploring I had a nice chat with Laz (haydenpryce) who co-owns the sim and runs it together with is sub and with the help of the Alanis Gallery ran by Syliva Fitzpatrick and her partner Michiel Seetan.
Xaara is (another quote) “a place to find your own BDSM or erotic path. For mature visitors only. Where Dominants and submissives can relax, role play, explore, gain knowledge or feast the eyes on the best sensual art in SL.”
There are events and a events calendar and for sure a lot more activites (like the erotic library, dancing, discussions and …). My visit was short considering the variety and what Xaara has to offer.
Thank you Laz for providing it.
