Dio’s 10th year in Second Life Feb 11th, 2018 – Part II

Yesterday, I had my my 10th anniversary of joining Second Life.
It has become a tradition for me to write a longer blog post on the occasion of my rezzdays, to have a look back on the last year and to realize the changes in my Second Life as well as the things that didn’t change. Yesterday, I published Part I of my anniversary entry and talked about my home, the changes in the family and my simploring tours.
Today’s part II is about family members,  other Highlights of my 10th year in Second Life and about my relation with my property, my wife, my Mistress Jenny. Enjoy!

Back to my SL “family”. They had their own highlights in my 10th year and of course these are also highlights for me.
slave Flo wrote another story, which still can be continued: The Victorian Corset. You’ll find part I, part II and part III in this blog. We had fun reading and illustrating it.


Kitty Maurer had kind of a competition with our ex-slave Dana and became a Hu-cow (Human Cow) like Dana. Considering that Kitty is male gave it an extra kinky touch. Kitty did well and produced lots of milk. I could have considered to drink my coffee with milk again *winks*. It was fun!

August 5th: Diomita with Hu-cow Kitty

Angelique got very active at the Oak Meadow community and managed a lot there. It was a new experience for her, trying to get all interests aligned. Some day it was all too much for her and she retreated from her “job” there and started something new. She then began to study at Birchwood Academy …. and gave in her studies in January 2018, saying that the academy is a step to high for her, she can’t follow the classes and gets behind. Oh my, I don’t want to sum up all the tuition we payed over the last years for Angelique’s education and still she’s a real brat sometimes. She’s now at another Institute called R.M.I., where they want to  treat her self wetting problems. It looks like we’ll pay more tuition.

September 17th: Angelique Maurer

Our slave slut cecy continously added to our fun. Her sluttiness and desire are insatiable. Unfortunately slut’s online times do not fit with ours anymore and we see her only during the weekends lately. Nonetheless, slace slut cecy is dedicated to us and loyal and we enjoy having her in our family and love to tease her when she’s around.

September 6th: slave slut cecy hanging around at Lochme (pictures by cecyme)

Our slavin Christa had the fantasy to become a puppy slave. Be careful, what you wish for! She became our puppy slave and we restricted her hearing and speech to that of a pet (there’re some great scripts for that). We had agreed to keep her as our pet for one full year. After 6 months, we allowed her to change her outfit and we loosened her restrictions a bit, so that she can communicate with us at least. She still has another 6 months to go.

December 26th: Diomita with slave pet Christa in her new puppy suit at home and at Mesmerize Dungeon

slave Adarra couldn’t be with us as much as she and we wanted due to her RL and the timezone issues. We did not see her often, but when she was around, she was always helpful and tried to add her part to the family. For example she made slave Kelly’s branding for the Maitreya mesh body.

October 17th: Diomita watching the slaves kelly and Adarra at our Stonehaven patio

My 10th year starts with Kitty Maurer, slave Flo, slave slut cecy, slave Adarra, slave puppy slavin C, slave kelly and slave Bella as officially collared slaves and subs. Angelique Maurer is not collared by us, but as our niece she’s part of the most inner circle. We’re quite full again:-).
In March 2017 we started our key-holding service. Our idea was (and is) that unowned slaves and subs may come to us, ready to be locked. We will lock their gear and take their keys for a predefined (longer) time of a week or more. They can enjoy being helpless and controlled. There’s no way back. We take a small fee for it, that is used to support our regular Friday night parties and our dj Virgo Babii. We had some feed back and the service also added to our fun.


The Friday night parties are a fix date in our Second Life. We enjoy starting the weekend dancing and chatting and being very relaxed. It might be one of the oldest regular parties in Second Life, running since 2008. WOW. Lately our parties have been very well attended and we came to the limit of our homesim, that can only handle 20 people simultaneously. Thank you for the great music and for providing this fun, Virgo. It became a part of my RL.

November 10th: Friday Night Party

We pursued our kinky Second Life not only within the family. We had several potential slaves and subs around us for a limited time. They left again for different reasons. Nonetheless they added to our fun. I want to mention here: Maddie (), slave Jade (,), Summer Robertson (), Rubbertoy (), sissy maid (), ally () and slave D ().


My relation to Mistress Jenny is the base of my Second Life. I wouldn’t be here without her. She continued to strenghten her position as my Mistress. As of right now, this is not going to change. She grants green lights to me, where I may control her (I do enjoy the green lights a lot!) and she holds me in a red light, when she’s in the mood to apply her full control. This is keeping our relation exciting.

During one of these red lights, Mistress Jenny had me in an outfit, that she named “submission complete”, and this describes our relation as how it is right now. Mistress Jenny is in charge and I am her Ehesklavin, her married sub wife. Nonetheless we mostly are a domme couple and we both enjoy controlling our slaves. Thank you Jenny for being my Mistress, my world and for being Mine nonetheless.

August 31st: Mistress Jenny with Ehesklavin Diomita – “Submission complete”

What’s left from my 9th year in Second Life, that I didn’t mention yet? Yes, an actual picture of myself. Inspired by Angelique and others I decided to try out a mesh head. In Second Life you become more beautiful with time, YAY. Such a shame that we can’t transmit that to real life. With Angelique’s help I managed to get the mesh head looking quite similar to my system head, hence it is still me (Angelique’s mesh head is really “wow”). I can switch between both heads and I do change according to the technical needs. The mesh head for example isn’t animated correctly for animations of older equipments. In addition I sometimes come the the maximum of possible attachments when I wear the Mesh head. The Mesh head is of Advantage, when I take close-up pictures, particularly when I use my LUMIPro HUD.

September 16th/17th: Diomita Maurer with “systemhead” and with “mesh head”

For sure 10 years is a long time in reality as well as in a virtual world like Second Life. I was blessed to come across Jenny with who I share not only Second Life. Our relation is the strong base upon which we built our world, but we also need and enjoy the community of family and friends around us. Thank you all for making this world for me and for us. SL is first of all about people and it’s you all who make my and our SL what it is: Still going strong, still enjoyable and still exciting! It was a great 10th year in Second Life and I look forward to the 11th!
Love from Diomita

Dio’s 10th year in Second Life Feb 11th, 2018 – Part I

Incredible!
Today marks my 10th anniversary of joining Second Life.
It has become a tradition for me to write a longer blog post on the occasion of my rezzdays, to have a look back on the last year and to realize the changes in my Second Life as well as the things that didn’t change.
As this post became a little bit too long, I decided to split it into two parts. The part one will be about our home, the changes in the Family and my simploring tours. Enjoy!

Let’s start with our home. It hasn’t changed. This time I also can’t report about a major refurbisment. There have been only some minor changes, some more plants, some new furniture and toys. I personally am very happy with the layout as it is now, but there’s always room for improvements.

December 15th: Our winterly homesim “Mount Everest”

Since my 9th rezzday the family has only grown. None of our slaves and subs left. We still have slave Flo, slave slut cecy, slave Adarra and slavin C. Our sub Kitty Maurer is still owned by us and enjoying spreading mischief and causing trouble for herself and others. And Angelique Maurer, our niece, stayed close to us as well. She left Zoey and finds more and more her own way in Second Life but she feels being at home when she’s with us.

The Maurer’s: slave Adarra, slave puppy Christa, slave slut cecy, Diomita, slave kelly, Mistress Jenny, Angelique, slave Flo, slave Belly and Kitty (from left to right, picture is from January 1st, I added in slave Adarra, slave Bella and Kitty)

In October 2017, I met kelly (kellytrip) at Heavy Bondage Club. I knew her as Claven’s slave. Claven brought her sometimes to our Friday night parties as a kind of a decoration for her. Claven gave her to Mara (Maralyn Corleone) and Mara allowed kelly some freedom, like looking for trouble at Heavy Bondage Club. kelly found the trouble she was seeking for. What started with teasing developed to a longer roleplay. We had kelly and later also her former owner Mara as our victims at home. We shaved their heads bald, we (ab)used them and we threatened both. The roleplay ended when kelly offered to fully submit to us if we let Mara go. slave kelly, Maurer’s lil slave, had no traditional trial, she was simply enslaved and is our slave now.

October 2017: Diomita with slave kelly

In November 2017 Bella (BellaRose1998) came to us. She attended one of our Friday night parties from a quite secure distance. Bella didn’t dance but stood aside most of the time and she spent some time at the pit, where slave kelly was stored that night. She was picturing herself fully controlled, tied and locked and was not at all shying away even from isolation but had no experience. Bella stayed with us for several weeks, was treated like a slave and fitted in well. She’s patient and accepts her place. After a short traditional trial in the tube cell, we collared her as Maurer’s Rose in January 2018.
I explored and discovered a lot in Second Life during my 9th year. I admire the creativity of artists in this virtual world, I visited galleries like MetaLes ..O.. ArT Virtual Space, Blue Orange, SOOSH Art Gallery, Serena Imagine Arts Center, The Eye Art Gallery and La Maison d’Aneli. I saw several installations within the LEA programm like Another world, Surreal Chess Wonderland, 16 Fields and The Mind of The Machine. I came across the light shows of Mario2 Helstein and saw the Solstice Light Show. I discovered the fractals of Gem Preiz in his exhibitions No Frontiers and Chaos. I visited Enchanted art and Cerridwens Cauldron, I saw Moya …. and many many more.

Dio’s 9th year in Second Life – selection of art that I saw

I found many cosy and lovely sims where people buildt their own dreamworld, peaceful and picturesque. You don’t need many prims or a large place for it, Long Journey and Another Long Journey are examples for that. Most of these dreamworlds were homesteads: Maison de L’amitié, Amandia, Follow Your Bliss (II), Ash Falls, Tavana Island, Sunfall, Sol Existence, Binemust, Borneo Island, Aspen Fell Memories, Cherishville, Holiday Trace, somewhere ….. just to name a few. In these sims I spent relaxing hours and enjoyed the views and the peace.

Then there were the sims that have a real background, where a place in the physical world was build in Second Life. This way I got a picture, an idea of the real places and my visit gave reason to do a little bit of research. Khodovarikha (in the Barents Sea, Russia) was one of the most impressing places and I spent some time learning about this place in the real world. I didn’t read or hear about Marfa before seeing it in Second Life, now I know that this place in the middle of nowhere is quite known as a major center for Minimalist art. But there were more like West Of The Rain (inspired by The San Juan Islands in Washington State), Costa Blanco (a southern province of Sweden), A piece of Ireland (Blarney Castle in Ireland), ~Neive~ (Neive is located in the Province of Cuneo in the Italian region Piedmont) and New Greenland (inspired by Kangaamiut, Greenland).

I also discovered many places related to my kinky side, to BDSM. That’s another dream you can live in Second Life and I do. Some of these places were not new at all, but new for me or I just rediscovered them. I want to mention the Seaside Slave Storage, Angel of Pain’s BDSM Island (which I visit more often again), SJC Playground, Fortress Mortice, Chek Chau – Daisy’s playground, LICK and Crystal Bay, Elegant Femme Gallery and Maison Sybille, Sadiana, Headlights, Mirage and The Havens. But there’re many many more. Also these places are build with passion and love and they all offer a lot more than just bdsm.

Thank you all for building, for creating and for sharing your dreams with the rest of the community. And please apologize if I forgot to mention some of my tours, it were too many. I did really enjoy all of my simploring tours!

End of part I

Simploring 2018 (8) Gem Preiz’ Sapiens

I discovered Gem Preiz’ artful work in Second Life last year and had some posts about the exhibitions and installations that I visited (No Frontiers, 5 years of Fractals, Chaos). Gem Preiz works with fractals, his pictures are based on math, but although the forms are duplicated what you see is a picture and you’re not able to to see the logic behind it. Often his work has a touch of science fiction. When I got the invitation to visit Gem’s newest installation at LEA 29, Sapiens, I went there a few hours before it opened offcially.

Gem Preiz’ Sapiens – Exhibition board (upper left) / at the landing Point (upper right) / inside the grid cube (lower)

You land in a hallway that could be part of a spaceship, some fog rises from below. There’re boards on both sides of the hallways and you can grab information about Gem and a notecard about the installation Sapiens. Gem describes his intentions and thoughts about Sapiens in the notecard (grab one). The boards also recommend the appropriate settings for your viewer for the best experience of Sapiens. I strongly recommend to switch the music on. At the end of the hallway is a cube, which is used as a TP to the installation itself.

Gem Preiz’ Sapiens – in the hallways / inside of the grid cube

Sapiens is a cube, a grid of 4 x 4 hallways and you land somewhere inside of an hallway. The cube hoovers in the endlessness of space. The hallways do look all the same, like at the landing they appear to be part of a huge spaceship. You get more or less lost in them, it’s a labyrinth, a maze. Gem describes the grid cube as a “limited universe, locked like a prison”. The “maze of interconnected passages is similar to a brain where the thoughts turn in a loop without any solution”.
You can travel between the 4 levels using elevator platforms that are on some crossings and which move up and down steadily. At the corners of the hallways you can peek out into the inner structure of the grid cube and again you’re lost, you find no mark, just endless repeating structures.

At the sides of the hallways of Sapiens Gem presents in total 40 fractals which he categorized into the themes: technology, maze, darkness, confinement.

Gem Preiz’ Sapiens -examples of the exhibted fractals

While I explored I met Inara Pey. I follow her blog “Living in a modemworld” for some years now and I often follow her exploring tours when I go simploring. It was the first time that I met her inworld and we had a very nice chat. And I had the opportunity to thank her in perosn for her great work for the community. Inara was just visiting like myself and just working on her blog post about Sapiens, which was published a few hours later (“A journey into Sapiens in Second Life“). As Inara has a passion for science fiction and space flight, Sapiens was for sure a highlight for her. Inara also told me, that Gem plans to expand the installation End of February, hence a reason for me to return.

Gem Preiz’ Sapiens – more impressions / Inara and Diomita (upper left)

Back to Sapiens. If you look out for details on the sides of the hallways besides the 40 pictures, you can find “Exits”, actually I saw 2 of them. They allow you to explore the inner structure of grid cube into which you peek from inside. You need to fly as there’re no hallways, otherwise you’ll fall down. The hovering objects, Gem calls them shuttles, are phamtom and thus colliding with them is harmless. I flew a bit around and although it looks huge at the first glance, you quickly discover your limitations. You can’t get out, I got a real prison feeling there and returned inside.

There’s another exit. In the hallways you find big black hands every once in a while. First I thought they might direct you way, but they don’t. Either by accident or by systematically walking every hallways on each level you will find a spot with many of these balck hands. They seem to have caught a golden statue, a human, who cowers under them. Clicking the golden statue brings you to the end of the exhibtion, which is on a extra platform, from where you can also return to the start. You can also see all 40 exhibited pictures once again in a catalogue. Above the platform sits is a huge golden statue (the homo sapiens sapiens?) holding the grid cube in it’s hand, looking at is lost in thoughts.

Gem Preiz’ Sapiens – the golden homo sapiens sapiens

Sapiens is a great combination of a 3D installation with a gallery presenting Gem’s fractal art. Both fit together perfectly. It is a journey into the inexplainable space inside of our brains, that can be like space flight into the endless room. And I like and admire the fractals. Thank you for another great experience in Second Life, Gem!

Simploring 2017 (89) Gem Preiz’ Chaos at The Eye Art Gallery

Gem Preiz’ “Chaos” – The Eye Art Gallery – November 2017 (1)

I discovered Gem Preiz’ art this year and wrote about it in this blog. I saw “No Frontiers” and I saw his exhibtion “5 years of Fractals“. A few days ago I got an invitation from Gem Preiz to visit his latest exhibition called “Chaos” at “The Eye Art Gallery“. Considering that Gem uses fractals for creating his Pictures, “Chaos” seems to be the opposite of what is underlying his art.
Gem wrote an introduction to his exhibtion “Chaos” that describes perfectly what he does and what it expresses:

Gem Preiz’ “Chaos” – The Eye Art Gallery – November 2017 (2)

Confronted with the mysteries of the origins and with the question of the determinism of the Nature, Mankind from Hesiode’s theogony to the most recent mathematical theories, wanted to tame the Chaos, first by naming and personifying it, then much later by putting it in equations, still unsolved.

Look for an underlying structure in the formless and for causes of the unexplained, here is the rock which the Man-Sisyphe pushes in front of him in his secular effort to understand the Universe and dominate it.

This exhibition displays 12 fractal “paintings” on the theme of the Chaos, which seem to illustrate its description given by Ovide : «a raw confused mass, nothing but inert matter, badly combined discordant atoms of things, confused in the one place», but arisen from mathematical functions and numerical calculations which make them pure products of a perfect determinism.”

You can look a few seconds or a few hours at each picture, you won’t recognize any system, any order or any equation that describes it – it looks like chaos. Just the knowledge that it is no chaos won’t help you solving this mystery. And if you neglect this fact and don’t search for the system, then you can see what your mind wants to see within the chaos. I saw landscapes, rocks and water, I saw vulcans and fire. Amzazing pictures, Gem! Thank you.

Gem Preiz’ “Chaos” – The Eye Art Gallery – November 2017 (3)

“Chaos” is presented at The Eye Art Gallery in November 2017. The Eye Art Gallery is owned by Mona (monabyte) and has a monthly changing exhibtion as far as I understood. Unfortunately Mona’s profile is in Spanish (maybe another language?) and I couldn’t find our more about the Art Gallery but I saw some names in the member list that sound familiar to me. Thank you Mona (monabyte) for enabling this exhibtion of Gem.

Simploring 2017 (77) 5 years of Fractals

When I read Inara Pey’s blog entry “Five Years of Fractals in Second Life” I remembered my visit to the installation “No Frontiers” by Gem Preiz at LEA in July (read here).
“5 years of Fractals” is an exhibition at the R&D Art Gallery that covers Gem Preiz’ artistical work of the last 5 years.

You can grab an information about Gem Preiz at the entrance of the exhibition and it is helpful for understanding what you see. Gem Preiz “is educated in science and mathematics and is fond of anything related to Nature, Cosmos and Earth, from astronomy to geology. The world of fractals is, in the same way, ruled by Mathematics functions which, as Physics do in Nature, enable to create objects which features repeat themselves at every scale.” In the notecard you’ll find a list of Gem’s work in Second Life and wihtin the LEA program – a long list btw.

The exhibtion is just great. It shows what you can do using fractals, be it related to nature or to Science Fiction, or be it simply fantasy. You will be captured in these pictures as you can discover so much. Many frames are slideshows presenting not just one picture but series of pictures. This way when you stand in one room of the exhibtion you can really dive into this world of fractals. It is amazing. There are links to youtube videos, that were taken at Gem’s former installations. I recommend watching them while you visit the exhibtion. It might change your view on the presented art as the videos add a third dimension and Gem selected fitting music.

The exhibition “5 years of Fractals” at the R&D Art Gallery is quite large and although I spent more than one hour there, I haven’t seen it all. Thank you very much, Gem. I had a nice time-out visiting your exhibtion.

I also looked up Gem Preiz’ profile and he found a nice way to interpret his Second Life name Gem:
“Gem like Gemini, which means twin: I feel so mach better when I’m together with my twin – Gem like Gemstome: I have a passion for minerals”
For sure Gem Preiz’ art is a gem of Second Life.
I also like what he states about his Real Life as it fits perfect to his art: “I spend more than half of my life dreaming of another life”

The R&D Art Gallery is at a sim with the name Diotima. The name Diotima means Zeus Honor, either in the active sense of a woman who honors Zeus, or in the passive sense of a woman honored by Zeus (source: wikipedia). On a sidenote: when I selected my name for Second Life I didn’t remember this name correctly and choose Diomita instead – funny coincidence.

Simploring 2017 (52) No Frontiers

For simploring Thursday, June 29th, I checked the Second Life Destination guide  and selected another LEA sim, LEA 16
“No Frontiers is an LEA immersive installation where you can pilot spacecrafts among large halls displaying high resolution sci-fi fractal frames by artist Gem Preiz. The trip will lead you to planets and stars after flying among colorful creations, surreal alien worlds and futuristic space bases.

Upon your landing you can grab 2 notecards with information about the art installation and about the artist Gem Preiz. There’s also a guide how to set your environment. Then you choose a vehicle, a space ship and begin your discovery. From the landing a tube leads into the isntallation itself, you fly through the tube to a box and at the wall you look at when you enter the box is a one high resolution futuristic science fiction picture, the box itself is filled with geometrical objects, which move and change and add another dimension to the picture at the wall. From the box another tube leads to the next box. I didn’t count the boxes, according to the notecard there’re 16. And each box is an expereince on it’s own. Flying the space ship is fun and getting these views was simply great. The journey ends in open space where planets and objects float in space.

No Frontiers by Gem Preiz is closed now unfortunately, I made it there on one of the last days. But once again I found a different way to present art and I learend about another artists playing with the possibilities of Second Life. Gem has a long list of exhibitions within Second Life and had several installations within the LEA program already. He’s educated in science and mathematics and and according to himself he enjoys the diversity of shapes and colors as a reflection of Nature’s one. Well, I can’t describe his work any better. No Frontiers was just great to see and I will look out for more art from Gem Preiz, thank you Gem!

No landmark this time as the installation is already closed unfortunately. I hope you got at least an impression of it by the pictures I took.
