Happy New Year 2022 and some stats and findings about this blog (2021 in review)

2021 has been another challenging year for all of us. The darn virus dominated our real life and some of us had more time inworld, other had no time for Second Life at all anymore. With regard to this blog 2021 has been a good year. I succeeded again to have an entry for every day (YAY). Blogging daily is not easy always as there’re days with not that much to report 8and others where you could write almost books!). In addition, I’m not able to write every day due to other obligations. Hence I always have some posts on stock and I try to pile up a few more for when I’m off for a few days.
In 2021 there about 180 diary entries, over 120 posts about art in Second Life and 35 simploring reports. Over all the blog grew by 379 new posts bringing the total archive of this blog to over 2,600 (!) posts.
As taking pictures is one of my passions in SL and storage space here is not free, I group my pictures to save space. When you click the pictures you can see them a bit larger. I also post the pictures on deviant art (Diomita Maurer at Deviant art). For my simploring tours I opened a flickr account where I publish pictures from these tours in full size. As there’s a picture limit of 1,000 for a free acount, you find there only the pictures of the last about 30 simploring tours. There you get the pictures in a higher resolution. In total I took more than 15,000 pictures again in Second Life in 2021.

In 2021 almost 15,000 people visited our blog compared to 19,000 in 2020, that’s quite a decline. The blog also got less clicks, 45,000 compared to 68,000 in 2020. Most clicks came from the Germany (9,500), US (9,400) and the UK (4,700). We had less days with very high viewing numbers, indicating that less new visitors came and began to read and read and click and read. Instead the blog is getting more and more regular readers. The number of followers increased once again to over 240. The statistics show that in total people from over 130 (!) countries visited our blog. Many thanks to all friends, readers and followers.
Most found our blog coming from search engines (11.000), from Facebook (1,500), from deviantart (1,300) and from  scoop.it SL Destinations (600) (that’s from where I often picked my simploring destinations. This website has closed a few months ago, probably one of the reasons for less visitors/clicks). Again not only the new blog entries attracted readers, there’re also some “evergreens”. The Top 4 Posts in 2021 were

1. The Victorian Corset Story – Part II –  1,141 clicks – March 2017 (written by slave Flo) – ranked 1st also in 2020
2. The Victorian Corset Story – Part III – 289 clicks – March 2017 (written by slave Flo)
3. Kara Bound – 209 clicks – April 2014 – also ranked 3rd in 2020
4. The Victorian Corset Story – Part I – 204 clicks – March 2017 (written by Flo)

This blog contains a lot of memories for Mistress Jenny and me and for the people close to us in Second Life. It started as a little diary to keep up with all the things happening around us in Second Life and has grown with time. In the meanwhile I read back myself often to look up a date or to check if I came across a place already before. I introduced a new series in 2019, the “Backflash of the month”. In the “Backflash” series I select an old entry once a month and present it here. This way I force myself to browse in the archive and to fresh up a few of the many memories. For our readers this series shall provide an insight into our Second Life without reading back the many posts and it might also give reason to browse through the archives.

In my diary entries you could follow how my submission to Mistress Jenny kept growing deeper and became natural for me, but you could also follow how much I enjoy to have her as my sub, as my property during my green lights. She’s still and will always be owned by me as well.

I still have fun writing and it’s my intention to continue daily, if I find the time for it. Considering how much of our free time in real life is spent in this virtual world it makes sense to keep the memories like you do in real life. The memories are real and they stay vivid and present this way.
That we attract so many readers who follow our ways in SL makes me happy and keeps me motivated.

Thanks again for reading and following my and our blog.
Have a great year 2022 in SL and in RL, and above all stay healthy! Let’s get over this pandemic now and forever.

Art in Second Life 2021 (119) Clay & Seed

Akiko Kinoshi (Akiko Kiyori) invited me to the opening of a new exhibtion at her sim Akimori on Sunday, December 5th. I had seen there “The Borderless Project” this Summer and wrote a blogpost series about it (read here part I, part II, part III and part IV). The new exhibition is called “Clay & Seed“.

I could not attend the opening itself and went there already the day before the official opening party. Akiko had told me that the exhibition was already open. With the invitation I got a notecard with the landmark, a notecard about the exhibition and a notecard with information about each participating artist: Haveit Neox, Bamboo Barnes and Lilia Artis.

Clay & Seed is “a collaboration of art, utilizing 3D, 2D, and Text. For the Clay & Seed exhibit, Bamboo Barnes chose to focus on 2D artwork, Lilia Artis on poetry, and Haveit Neox on sculpture and architecture. The goal was to have these disciplines unite into a single work, which in this case of three like-minded artists, occurred organically.

Haveit’s galleries provide the supporting walls for Bamboo’s imagery, while Lilia’s poetry garnishes the windows of these clay buildings and thus closes the circle. During the process, each artist’s work contained a seed of inspiration for the other two. Being admirers of each other’s works for many years, it seems destiny smiled on these three with the opportunity to share their visions together and in an art region that inspired their creativity.

Describing the erosion of the environment and human relationships, the work of all three artists explores the fields of destruction, growth, abuse, hope, gratefulness, and loneliness.

The landing is in the center of the installation on a little platform with three trees. A few chairs invite to sit down and to have a first view on the artwork. It is in the skies. Two big buildings, which reminded me of cathedrals, caught my eyes first. The two buildings are the galleries. Between the two buildings are several platforms in the form of dishes. They seem to be supported by many beings among others also mermaids. On the dishes are 3D art objects. You also see paths that lead the visitor around and along the paths are more 3D art objects.

Clay & Seed – Impressions (1): First views on Haveit Neox’ artwork

At the landing point you can grab presents from the three artists, art that you can use to display at home. I started to explore the installation. All 3D objects were made by Haveit Neox. In the accompanying notecard Haveit wrote about himself:
I feel that I grew up in a garden. Nearly always a barefoot kid with stained feet from the earth, I constructed primitive cities with yard debris, mud, and twigs. Colorful paint and cutout pictures from magazines enriched the surfaces. Later I fashioned cities of fired clay and glazes. Interior and exterior spaces fascinated me as I observed bugs take up residence. I also drew cities on paper and long scrolls. The cities advanced from their mud origins to painted scrolls, and ceramics.
In Real Life, I have displayed my artworks mainly in Los Angeles, New York, and a couple shows in Paris. The theme is often based on urban settings of my own invention. In December 2009, I was led to the virtual world of Second Life. As a child, a strong and recurrent fantasy was miniature people populating my cities. Avatars fulfill that dream. The spaces I make in SL receive real people in their pixel guise. In the context of the city, the interior and exterior spaces hold my artwork, and are themselves a habitable exhibit.

Clay & Seed – Impressions (2): Haveit Neox’ artwork

There’s a lot to discover and to see. For example you find the small clay cities, you find artful beings like horses, fishes, mermaids, fantasy beings, you find smaller 3D art pieces where several layers build the 3D effect. And the 2 galleries of course.

Some of Haveit Neox’ sims and buildings still can be seen in Second Life – something on my list of places to visit: Acc Alpha (also known as the city of Accentaury), QeddoQ, Sparquerry and Centaurs’ Hall.
On vimeo you can watch a video about Haveit’s RL clay artwork and about Accentaury: Accentaury Tour 2014. On the sim of ACC Alpha, Accentaury, City Center 2016.

At the entrance of both gallery buildings are storks that hold boards with the poems of Lilia Artis. As mentioned above, poems are also in the windows of the two gallery buildings. They aer kind of a connecting element between Haveit Neox’ 3D art and buildings and Bamboo Barnes’ pictures that are exhibited inside of the galleries.

Clay & Seed – Impressions (3): Lilia Artis’ poems

spit out

you look at me
showing yellow teeth
I see cities tumble
out of your open mouth
and remnants of corpses

your foul breath crawls
over my body that is locked in place
to witness you gobbling down empires
and spitting them out again
only to tell me who I am

Lilia Artis writes about herself:
My RL artwork stepped into the background when I discovered the love of writing, which has become my main career. Coming into SL however, rekindled the passion for the paths of colours, light, pattern and structure. And so, I merge both interests into my virtual art, be it 2D, 3D or machinima. During my creative voyage all these years I noticed how much my virtual art inspired the exploration of my RL artwork and vice versa, often one leading to the other. In the beginning I was neck deep into painting with acrylics and water colours and drawing. When I later learned to weld metal and to sculpt stone and wood, I discovered my love of creating 3D objects. At first it only led to learning the goldsmith craft and creating my own jewelry. But I was hooked and seeing what you can do with prims in SL felt like such a similar process, minus the damaged fingers. I will never forget the joy of building my first simple virtual installations made of prims. Again several years later, learning to sculpt with 3D software led to learning to sculpt with clay in RL, something I would never have considered otherwise. But I wanted to create faces, something that fascinates me most…
I have done solo and collaborative exhibitions in galleries and at events in Second Life. For a while my main focus concerning artwork was on machinima. I teamed up with Haveit Neox and we expanded to RL art projects as well, which we will continue into the future. Since 2015 in SL I focused on building together with Haveit Neox the Arts & Entertainment region for Fantasy Faire.
There are still video’s available of Lilia Artis’ machimas, which were made for the UWA art challenges, 2015 & 2014: ‘Tis an Egg, touching white and Striding – unknown Roads.

Clay & Seed – Impressions (4): Bamboo Barnes’ artwork

Inside of the galleries are Bamboo Barnes pictures. I never saw that many pictures of her than in this exhibtion. There are around 30 pictures in each of the two buildings.
Bamboo is in Second Life for over 14 years already, painting software & photoshop are her best friends. Bamboo had many exhibtions and appearances in the Second Life art scene and in 2018 she had her first exhibition in real life: “I create what I see but maybe you won’t, they are about people’s reality and  mind.” Bamboo’s art is a mixture of abstract forms, of people and photographs. Most pictures are colourful and it is in the eye of the beholder what we see in her pictures. I myself saw her work the first time at La Maison d’Aneli during the Holiday season 2019/2020 (read here). I also saw her exhibition “Marginal Mannerism” at DixMixGallery in April 2021 (read here), the exhibition “Meant to be” at Itakos Art Gallery last year (read here), I saw “Conjure” at FOCUS Magazine F.A.I.R Gallery in August 2021 (read here), I saw “Mindstorm” at IMAGO Land (read here), and just recently I saw her exhibition “Drawer” at Hannington Arts Foundation (read here). I also had a look at her flickr page.

Clay & Seed – Impressions (5): Bamboo Barnes’ artwork

The broad range of themes is intriguing. There are pictures that remind of Mediterrean cities painted in water colour and artfully processed in Bamboo’s way. There are faces under several layers so that the spectator has to dive into the picture, there are pure abstract cretions as well as pictures of art objects. You have to see them yourself – and you need time to get all the details. Each of the two buildings would be worth a seperate visit.
But that’s not all…. Looking down I could see another platform. It is connected to the art installation “Clay & Seed” with a long row of horses which winds up from there to the platform. I did not check if you could walk up and down, I think it is more another art object, that connects the world below with “Clay & Seed” in the sky. On the lower level is another art installation of Bamboo Barnes, this time in 3D. I didn’t find a name or anything about it. The installation consists of boxes, mirror boxes and ice cubes. As you could expect it, it hs very colourful. You can walk inside and suddently you’re completely in another world. Whereever your look at you see Bamboo’s art.
In the outside Bamboo added some geometrical forms and objects .. and you can sit down for a break and a chair. This chair is one of the gifts you could grab at the landing of “Clay & Seed” – and it is now also at my homeplace.

Below “Clay & Seed” – Bamboo Barnes’ Boxes

Visiting “Clay & Seed” made my Saturday an art day! I enjoyed my visit, reading about the artists and writing about this great installation. Thank you Akiko Kinoshi (Akiko Kiyori) for your kind invitation as well as for providing the space for the arts. Thank you Haveit Neox, Bamboo Barnes and Lilia Artis for your artwork.
According to Akiko “Clay & Seed” will be availabe for a visit for several months.

Simploring 2021 (34) Southern Magic

Looking for a simploring destination, I had to scroll through the blogs, that Annie checked for me and us before on her scoop.it SL Destination. On RigTorok’s blog I came across “Southern Magic” and decided to visit it.

Southern Magic is an adult full region owned by Davis (davisdelong). The landmark description lists the main points of interest and activities on this sim: “Welcome to Southern Magic! Romance and Music are in the air! Bring a date or find one in the many romantic nooks and crannies!” along with several tags “Southern shopping square, cocktail bar, Riverboat, Hand and Foot, Greedy, 7 seas fishing, Musicans, Djs, Ride the Croc, Adult

Southern Magic – birds eye view and orientation map

Southern Magic is built to create the look and feel of the old South in the US. The landing is right next to the largest building at “Southern Magic“, the Magnolia Club. You should be a group member to enter the club, joining the group is free.

The Magnolia Club is an adult based meeting and dance club on Southern Comfort sim – a place for romance and more. A place to meet, hangout, catch up with friends and lovers, dance, cuddle and maybe more. We hold occasional events here but music is always on and you are welcome to come and dance or wait for people to show up any time of day or night.
On the indoor balcony upstairs you will find dining tables and chairs. You can eat all kinds of beautiful cakes desserts and patisserie, drink tea and chat quietly perhaps for before moving on upstairs to more sensual pleasure – the access to this part is reserved to group members. On the outdoor balocony are teleporters to 4 suites, each consisting of 4 rooms with adult equipment (The Bedroom, The Living Room, The Bathroom and the Playroom). Each suite has a slightly different decor and furniture.” (most parts taken from the notecard that you can grab at the entrance)

Impressions of Southern Magic (1) – The Magnolia Club

I continued my simploring tour and walked through the lovely park in front ot the Maglia Club to the little town “The Square”. The houses really provide the look and feel of the old South. All of them are furnished, the stores are really store where you can buy clothes for example. The atmosphere is really great.

Impressions of Southern Magic (2) – The Park and The Square

Next stop for me was the Riverboat. No old South without a Missisippi paddle wheel steamer! The Riverboat offers a larger gaming area on the lower floor, and a large dining room on the upper floor. The Riverboat Club holds a Dinner Dance Experience on Fridays. The Dinner Experience is a roleplayed formal dinner (Grab a notecard at the entrance to the boat to read more about it).
And above ot the dining room is a wedding room, almost perfect for weddings!

Impressions of Southern Magic (3) – The Riverboat

You can explore Southern Magic either on foot (like me) or you take the carriage (I didn’t) or you use the teleporter boards which you find at all mayor points of interest. I walked long the river on the Riverboat walk and came to the Open Air Venue and Dancing area. And I visited The Plaza, another event space.

Impressions of Southern Magic (4) – The Riverboat walk, The Open Air Venue and Dancing and The Plaza

But there’s even more to do at Southern Magic. There’s a 7 Seas Fishing game if you like to spend your time with that, or you could visit The Swamp. I read that you can ride an alligator there (I missed trying that, a reason to return asap). Beside these activities you find quite some nice and romantic spots to sit and cuddle at Southern magic, lovely places surrounded by the atmosphere of the old South.

Impressions of Southern Magic (5) – The 7 Seas Fishing, The Swamp, and two of the many romantic spots

I enjoyed my simploring tour and saw another great place in Second Life. Thank you Davis (davisdelong) for sharing your place with the public and for adding all the activities!

Diary 2021 (146) October 29th – Our Halloween Friday night party

Friday, Ocotber 29th, I met with Mistress Jenny in the afternoon. We went to club Domme a Domme, where we caught up with our news. Mistress and I had a few IMs, one was about my story from owning Mistress Jenny as mine to becoming her married slave. Mistress Jenny talked with me about it and fueled my submission to her.
When we returned home, she provided me my fix. She made me lick ehr while she was talking about welding my collar, about my position, about my enslavement. Mistress is a real expert when it comes to conditioning. Thank you, Mistress Jenny!

October 29th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at club Domme a Domme and at home

After we had recovered we changed into our outfits for our Halloween party at night. My Little Red Ridding Hood costume was quite bloody!

Our Halloween party was great fun. I’d like to say – as every year. Mistress Jenny had done a great job with decorating our dancefloor and embedding it into a forest. And we had great costumes.

Friday night Halloween party: Mistress Jenny and Diomita, Janina Foxdale, Sarah Fhang (upper row), slave Holly, Mistress Jenny and Diomita, Maurer’s pet Sun, Virgo Babii (lower row)

Some outfits were quite scary, bloody or simply creative. Our Ebony had wings, but couldn’t lift off due to her fat ass. Domina Ansar was a huge fantasy robot with skulls just topped in height by DwarfSquasher Stormcrow. Some (late) guests just joined as they were. Well, and Claven’s decorations do always come naked (or just with chastity belts).

Friday night Halloween party: Ebony Massey, Domina Ansar, ruby (saharapuddle), sapphire (littleshy97), Claven Albatros with Laura (Laura00175) and Kira Skytower (upper row), Baroness Capelo, Claven Albatros, DwarfSquasher Stormcrow with Della Randt, Starbright Wingtips and Jayson Dakota, Mina (Mayhemzodd Mcdunnough), Dr. Mara Lynn (Maralyn Corleone) (lower row)

That we had a outfit contest has become a tradition. We had several winners and none with more than 2 votes. Our slave Holly and our pet Sun also won – and we will get something nice restrictive for them for the prize money *winks*. And Virgo had to strip, this time she dared to even take off her panties (if she wore any, what I doubt). The pictures I took are nice memories – until next year’s Halloween party.

Simploring 2021 (33) Grauland November 2021

following Inara Pey’s blog I came across “Grauland” again. Inara just had published a new blogpost about “Grauland“: “Grauland’s Lights in Second Life“.

I have visited Grauland in 2019 the first time (read here), three times in 2020 (read here, here and here) and the last time in April 2021 (read here). And everytime it was different. Each redesign was worth a visit so far.

Grauland is an adult homestead owned by JimGarand. He runs a shop for poses (M-1 Art Poses). Inara reported in her post that JimGarand had been away for a few month, and that he moved to a new (adult) homestead. And he created again something different from what I saw from him before. As far as I could find out, Jim’s shop for poses (M-1 Art Poses) is not (yet?) located in the skies above – at least I saw no teleport point to it.

Grauland is a modern town. The landing point is in an older part with a red light district. In the background you see the skyscrapers of what might be the business district. It you use shared environment, it’s night and a bit hazy. You can sense that you’re not in the best district of the the town. The facades are used for big paintings, racelights lead to nightclubs and other stores like a laundry or a cinema. Public toilets are not far from the landing point.

Impressions of Grauland November 2021 (1): Around the landing point

I walked towards the promende first, had a short break at a bar, then walked all along the promenade with its modern light art objects. The promenade ends in a tunnel.

Impressions of Grauland November 2021 (2): Promenade with its modern light art objects

I walked back and used the stairs to enter the largest building at Grauland. I named it “Modern Art Building”. In the court you find more light art objects. The building itself seems to have no purpose. It is just empty. The glass facade offers great views on the skyscrapers inthe background. I left the Modern Art Building on the other side and came to a huge Arch of Victory, obviously a protected landmark in the heart of the town.

Impressions of Grauland November 2021 (3): Modern Art Building

I continued exploring the redlight district and found more hidden backyards, bars, a garage amd even a furnished flat, which you enter through a door teleporter. The atmosphere of Grauland is very dense and feels authentic. Jim selected the textures, the all paintings and racelights very well and I’m pretty sure that I missed many details. It is very well made!

Impressions of Grauland November 2021 (4): The redlight district

Finally I visited the beach and the pier. That’s quite a contrast to the town. At the end of the pier is a hut where you can sit inside like in a sailor’s club and outside you have a nice view on the sea or backwards to the town with it’s skyscrapers in the background. At the beach you also find a nice campfire.

Impressions of Grauland November 2021 (5): pier, beach and campfire

JimGarand has once again re-invented Grauland and surprised me with a totally different design. The setting and the atmosphere of Grauland are very fitting. The art is not too dominant, yet present and the Modern Art Building gives enough reason to speculate about its purpose (if any). Thank you Jim, in particular for sharing your sim with the public again.

Art in Second Life 2021 (83) “Marking the Twain” by London Junkers

After my visit to the exhibition “Sinners and Saints” (read here) I had contact to London Junkers, one of the artists who contributed to “Sinners and Saints”.

London invited me to see his latest exhibtion at United Artists of SL (UASL). The exhibition is called “Marking the Twain“. At the entrance you get an important hint “Welcome to London Junker’s Marking the Twain, to enjoy this installation better please use midnight setting or use Shared environment, then read the story in the poster on the entrance billboard. Thank you. enjoy.”

I won’t publish the whole story here, as it would spoil your experience, just a few words to understand what you can see and experience when visiting:
Standing atop that old steamer boat with clouds touching us while we flew across the skies; his face was familiar, rigid and wise, and he looked majestic against the thin line on the horizon, where the gray light exploded in a boom of colour with his presence.
He was the captain of that ship. THe captain of that creature I was riding on my way South. And I guess I was a cadet under his command…..
His name was Samuel, oh yeah, I remember that name, and boy if I loved the man who owned itm and all those Summer days and starry nights, when we went on all our adventures, together, marking the twain.
(London Junkers)

Impressions of “Marking the Twain” by London Junkers (1)

The installation has just a few elements. There’s the big old steamer boat that flies over the water and touches the cloulds. It is a big boat and on the upper deck you can recognize Samuel, standing there tall and confident having full control. On your way to the steamer boat you may notice a fisher on the shore. But he’s not fishing fish. Intead you see letters floating on the water.

Some ink drops into the water from a big fountain pen .. forming the letters.. that will once become a story. You must just fish the right letters and put them together in the right way. One who was alble to do that was Mark Twain. The steamer boat with all it’s details stands for his most renowned story about Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer. I admit I only read this one book of Mark Twain,

You can find some details on the steamer boat, like the golden bell in front of it. Or like benches with books from mark twain laying on them.

Impressions of “Marking the Twain” by London Junkers (2)

The installation along with the beautiful written story is one piece of art, they belong together.

I’ve never been to United Artists of SL (UASL) before: “UASL is a relaxed group of artists in SL that share and communicate regarding various art events and opportunities open to the artist community. We encourage people to use their imagination and to continue to learn different methods of creating art. We fully support other artist groups. As well, we manage and host our own events. This is for art related events, not club or DJ events.
UASL offers several different areas for artist to experiment or to exhibit. UASL has a management team consisting of Riannah Avora, CheloBaron and RainCat Furstinna of North (vihmakass).
For more information either visit their website or read the notecard that you will get when you visit “Marking the Twain” by London Junkers.

Thank you London for your installation. I enjoyed my visit!
Thank you UASL for enabling this installation.

Backflash August 2021 – “New slave midsummer outfit” (August 2016)

In the “Backflash” series I select an old entry once a month and present it here. This way I force myself to browse in the archive and to fresh up a few of the many memories. For our readers the series shall provide an insight into our Second Life without reading back the many posts and it might also give reason to browse through the archives.
For August 2021 I scrolled back 5 years and selected a little series of post from August 2016: “New slave midsummer outfit”.

Enjoy reading!


New slave midsummer outfit (Aug 3rd, 2016)

Monday, August 1st, we began to fit our slaves into their new midsummer outfit. It is according to midsummer something very little – a naughty harness colourable in 100 different colours and reveals the slave’s breasts and pussies. We added a RR armbinder and just to be prepared for any misbehaving a RR ringgag. That’s it – simple and sexy. slave Nina and slave cecy were the first who were put in their next outfit. When we were done and satisfied with their appearance Mistress Jenny and I took the slaves to Mesmerize Dungeon to expose them.

Tuesday, August 2nd, we put slave Flo in her new midsummer outfit. She choosed yellow and that’s quite outstanding. Pauline asked to joined and for her we selected a green harness. So far the slaves are yellow (Flo), cyan (cecy), red (Nina) and green (Pauline). Should we call them by their colours? At least a nice idea, isn’t it? After fitting the new outfit we took the the yellow, the cyan and the green slave to Lochme and enjoyed some chatting and banter.

We went to The Secret House that night and had a nice chat. slave blue did enhance the new outfit creating a little tattoo for the cleavage with two “Maurer roses” and the letter “M”. If you take a closer look at the tattoo inworld you’ll notice the roses do have 4 thorns each. So you can also consider them to symbolize Mistress Jenny and me and our 8 subs & slaves.

New slave midsummer outfit (4) (Aug 6th, 2016)

It looks as if the slaves have a little conspiracy. They show up one after the other each night. On Thursday night (August 4th) it was slavin C who was fitted into her midsummer outfit. This time I choose for her as I got used to have her in pink. So she became slavin pink. After she was dressed I put out three kinky cushions fitting in colour with the three present slaves yellow, cyan and pink. While Mistress Jenny and I cuddled on the bench we watched the slaves riding the dildos with increasing lust.

Later we went to Mesmerize dungeon for the slaves to cool down after riding the dildo’s and for chatting. We met slave L there who you might remember from last year where she joined some bondage fun. She makes a contrast to our slaves.

Backflash July 2021 – “LICK – Heaven or Hell” (July 2016)

In the “Backflash” series I select an old entry once a month and present it here. This way I force myself to browse in the archive and to fresh up a few of the many memories. For our readers the series shall provide an insight into our Second Life without reading back the many posts and it might also give reason to browse through the archives.
For July 2021 I scrolled back once again 5 years and selected a post from July 2016: “LICK – Heaven or Hell”
Actually today i would categorize this post under “Exploring sims in Second Life” or eventually under “Art in Second Life”, but these categories didn’t exist yet when this post was written.
The landmark provided with the original post doesn’t exist anymore, the sim is gone. That is no surprise after 5 years. Nonetheless my post and my pictures still exist. And also the video on youtube about the sim (it is a bit lengthy with over 50 minutes) still exists. Enjoy reading!


LICK – Heaven or Hell

What a title (!). Actually this post is not what you think it might be about. “Heaven or Hell” is a sim in Second Life. I found it browsing through the SL destination guide under the tag “Art”. The descrpiton doesn’t say that much “Has your fate been decided for you or will you decide? Choose wisely, choose carefully. And remember you can always check out but you can never leave. Turn your sounds up and get ready for the ride.”

July 23rd: Diomita visiting “Heaven or Hell”

At the landing point you have to decide to go to heaven or to hell. Btw. have you ever thought about why there is as stariway to heaven but a highway to hell? I like the text between the two doors “When you think of heaven and hell, you already have images in your meind of what you think it should look like. No right or wrong they are your images and these are mine“. Mine refers to Sera Bellic, who owns this sim and “LICK” sim design.  “LICK sim design offers complete sim/parcel design, landscaping and interior design. LICK is dedicated to creating beautiful, enchanting spaces for your home or business.” Back to my simploring. I decided to see hell first. For going to hell you step downstairs into a dark area, fire is everywhere, it looks very hot.

July 23rd: Diomita stepping down to hell

Walking around you see some dead bodies, some cages and some steam fountains erupting through the hot ground, the eternal fire of hell is around you. After a while I found the entrance to go further down to hell, a tunnel system that is connecting caves. Skeletons and skulls lie on the ground everywhere and dinosaur skeletons guard the entrances to the caves. You can hear screams every once in a while when your sound is turned up. Scary? Yes.

Ok, the hell did meet my expectations, my images and what I’ve been told about hell when I was a kid. But how will heaven look alike? Good news is, in Second Life you can see both :-).  So I stepped up from hell and went further upstairs to heaven. Heaven is a beautiful and peaceful place, an harmonic landscape.

Ok, the heaven did not meet exactly my expectations. I saw no angels and I didn’t hear plainchants and I didn’t walk on clouds. Shame! :-). But heaven in SL is still nice. I walked a bit around and found 2 spots that did make up with my expectations. Firstly I walked over a bridge build of violins and secondly I visited the only house in heaven and obviously the angels get their wings there.

One last remark: I my imagination the word “LICK” can mean heaven sometimes *winks*

If you don’t want to go the “Heaven and Hell” yourself you can also watch a video from Andrew Carvin that is a bit lengthy though here. Thank you Sera Bellic for this piece of imagination of heaven and hell.

Backflash June 2021 – “Another full house” and “The slaves” (June 2016)

In the “Backflash” series I select an old entry once a month and present it here. This way I force myself to browse in the archive and to fresh up a few of the many memories. For our readers the new series shall provide an insight into our Second Life without reading back the many posts and it might also give reason to browse through the archives.
For June 2021 I scrolled back 5 years and selected 2 posts from June 2016.
The first post is from June 25th, 2016 and titled “Another full house” and shows me with slave cecy, slavin C, slave Adarra, sklavin Gebby and slave Nina. They all have left us and we can only hope that they are doing well.
The second post is from June 13th and titled “The slaves”. I had made a picture with all 10 (!) slaves, subs and applicants we had around us 5 years ago. What a collection!
Enjoy reading….


Another full house (June 25th, 2016)

Thursday night was short as I was home late. And I found a full house of slaves when I arrived. Of course I couldn’t resist to take a picture (well, several pictures) of them.

Thursday night it was slave Nina’s turn to get (ab)used. She also got aquainted with our office desk. In order that we don’t mix up the slaves those who were used lately wear the bag gag… slave Nina is number 4 … still some to go *winks*. The night was short but enjoyable … and the slaves sweated inworld and in RL.

The slaves (June 13th, 2016)

Over a month ago we put slave Flo into her red latex catsuit adding a red latex hood with black eyepads and a blonde pony tail. That day the new outfit for our slaves came to life. The outfit has been further developed and slave Adarra first added the “Maurer”-rose to the left buttock, then the national flag of the slave’s residence on the right buttock. Every slave got a different colour in a shade of red, pink, violet or liliac. And not only our permanently owned and collar slaves Flo, Gebby, Adarra, cecy and Nina were dressed accordingly but also Kitty. In addition we had or have slave Po, slave Mii, slavin C and slave Pauline in the very same outfit. In total 10 (!) slaves. When we go out, they add colour to every sim and they attract attention, in particular when they come online together. Everywhere we go with the slaves we get compliments and also application to join the group.
When I publish pictures here in the blog I refrain from telling who’s who. I can only guess how difficult it is to distinguish them, in particular when you don’t see the flag on their buttocks. The slaves will stay in their outfit at least until end of June so there will be more to report about them and there will be more pictures. In May I had in mind to put an enjoying bondage picture together showing all slaves on the naughty slut platform in Lochme but I gave up this plan as it was a bit to ambitious to get all slaves aligned in the right position. Instead I made a little collage of all slaves together with Jenny and me. I hope you like it – I am pretty sure that all 10 slaves are in the picture. Just let me know if I mixed them up *winks*

Diary 2021 (74) Jund 3rd/4th – 10 years Eurobrat HQ at Mount Everest

After the full and varied day before, Thursday, June 3rd was quiet and relaxed. I met with Jenny in the morning, right before she had to leave. She was about to travel visiting her family, hence it was an extra for us to see eachother.

June 3rd: Mrs and Mrs Maurer at home

I was inworld again in the afternoon and tried out outfits for our Friday night party. I send out a pre-announcement for it:
“Tomorrow marks the 10th anniversary of our Friday night party at Mount Everest as well as the 10th anniversary of the sim itself. So let’s go back to the future and dress retro or come as you are … we will have a contest for the best outfit. Enjoy dj Virgo’s great music and come and celebrate with us.”
I found something nice, an outfit that I acquired 10 years ago – and it really looks 10 years old, as Second Life has improved a lot in particular with regard to avatar appearance.
I changed back and spent some time at Heavy Bondage Club and had a chat with Angelique.

I was inworld again early at night and went on a simploring tour, very enjoyable. slave Elena (Elenaslv Serenity) came inworld and after I had finished my tour, I picked her up at home and met with Angelique. We went to Carnal Intentions. I chatted with Angelique and slave Elena and time went by quickly. Later slave Holly joined us. After Angelique had left to bed, I stayed at Carnal Intentions with slave Elena and slave Holly – and Jenny came inworld. Her connection was weak yet good enough to chat at least. We had time to catch up with our mutual news RL and SL. slave Holly left early as she was feeling a bit under the weather.

And that’s it about Thursday.

Friday, June 4th, I was inworld during the day and visited another gallery. And at night I was early online to prepare our party. slave Elena was at my feet and slave Holly cleaned the house for the weekend. Our party was great. We had fun with our retro oufits, talked about old times as well as about current issues. It has to be noticed that the oldest equipment at our dance floor is Virgo tip jar, which she used already when the party was held at the Bratz-Club.
Jenny came inworld as well. We danced and enjoyed the start into our weekend. And we had our contest, which was a little extra fun.

June 4th – 10 years Eurobrat HQ at Mount Everest / 10 years Firday night party: Della Randt, Angelique, Starbright Wingtips, Jenny, Diomita, slave Holly, slave Elena, Dely Ebony (krysbia), slave Melissa, illa Quan (upper row), Tinker Vel (Velika47), Sara (SaraRandall), Astra Nebula, Firefly Starlight, Baroness Capelo, Claven Albatros, Scheherazade Enchantment, Talos (Talosborn), Kira Skytower, Virgo Babii

Della Randt got the most votes (5) followed by Angelique (3) and Starbright Wingtips (2) … and several others with 1 vote. Congratulations to all! We hope for many years to come for our Friday Night party and for our home.
