Simploring 2018 (14) 50 cats by Cica Ghost

Cica sent me a notecard with a poster and a landmark of her newest installation “50 cats“. The name reveals exactly what you will see when you visit 50 cats.

50 cats by Cica Ghost – an overview

Cica’s cats live on a meagre rocky and almost round island. In the middle of the island is a plateau which is surrounded by a village consisting just of many similar houses. The village looks dead and not inhabited. There’s just one path, that leads from the landing point at one corner of the island to the green hill with the plateau in the center. No other paths, no shops, no trees, almost no vegetation.
The plateau itself is different. It is a large and mostly paved place, with some flowerbeds in the corners and even 2 trees. At 2 sides the place is fenced with varicoloured wooden boards. And there they are: exactly 50 cats.

Impressions of “50 cats by Cica Ghost”

The cats are tall but they don’t look scary at all. They seem to look sceptical at all visitors. None of them is smiling, most aren’t even cute in a classical sense. But every cat is different. A few of them lay on their back, a few sit, on cat is trying to catch butterflies. And thay all are looking at the visitors.
There are not only the 50 cats to see. You’ll find also some rabbits who live peacefully beside the cats. One of the fences is decorated with mice – how funny as the cats can’t eat them and have to look at them all the time, the other fence is decorated with one of Cica’s stick figures, a girl that holds a balloon.

As Inara, who posted about 50 cats on February 7th, I can’t find any fitting interpretation for me. 50 cats is a sim in Cica’s typical design that gives home for her cats. Not much is destracting the visitor, so the focus is studying the cats, comparing them, thinking about their intentions and moods. You can buy the every cat and they are not expensive.

I bought one instead of leaving at tip. This cat, I’ll call her Cica, sits now on the porch of our house at home (I reduced her size).

50 cats is another interesting installation of Cica Ghost. I like that Cica always creates something different, always something outstanding. Thank you, Cica! I enjoyed my visit very much.

February 11,12,13th – Anniversary row

We have quite some anniversaries these days among our family and friends. Starry (Starbright Wingtips) and I rezzed the very same day, Feb 11th, 2008. Hence we both celebrated our 10th annverisary of joining Second Life before yesterday . Very close to one year older in Second Life is Argi (Argi Boa). She joined February 12th, 2007 and celebrated her 11th rezzday yesterday. And today, February 13th, 9 years ago in 2009 our Flo (Florence Riddler) joined SL.

Happy anniversary Starry, Argi and Flo!

Happy anniversaries Starry, Argi and Flo!

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 (12) Neverfar

For my simploring tour February 1st, I selected Neverfar from the Destination guide. The name rang a bell, and yes, I read about Neverfar in Inara’s blog a couple of day’s before “Neverfar in Second Life“.
Neverfar was created and is owned by inertia (caridee.sparta), who is also offering her building skills to do design sims for customers. Hence Neverfar is also kind of a showcase. inertia says about it: “The Neverfar Project specializes in bringing my signature shabby vintage style to your space with amazing landscapes and sceneries. My our meticulous attention to detail and only the best in Second Life decor and landscaping items, i’ll bring your dream to life from a single room to a full sim uniquely designed by me.

Impressions of Neverfar (1)

Neverfar consists of 3 islands. The main island is public and there’s a lot to discover. The little village, obviously we’re somewhere in Asia, offers a lot of little details to discover. The rest of the main island is also inhabited and fun to explore. There’re many cosy places which offer nice views – a pardise for photographers. Time seems to stand still a bit in Neverfar and the “shabby vintage style” adds a particular charm. When you’re in the little village you will most probably meet a flying robot, which is harmless but a reminder that time didn’t stand still *winks*. I wonder what’s the robots’ assignment? Anyway it is funny!

Impressions of Neverfar (2) – note the fying robot and and Cica’s animated stick figure

On the other public island you climb up the lighthouse for a spectacluar view or visit the residentail home there. You’ll need to swim or fly to get there. The third island is private and you should respect that.
Inara mentioned Cica Ghost’s animated stick figures. And I saw them, at least a pair of them on bicycles. What a nice surprise 🙂

Impressions of Neverfar (3)

I enjoyed my short visit to Neverfar. Thank you inertia for sharing it with the public! And I like the expression “shabby vintage style”, as it describes pretty well the overal setting of Neverfar.

Simploring 2018 (9) Ivy Falls

Once again I selected my destination for a simploring tour following Inara Pey’s blog “Ivy Falls in Second Life“. Ivy Falls is a full sim, built by Kere Delcon and Rekka Berchot, it’s group owned, the group founded by Rekka, hence I assume Ivy Falls is onwed by her or by her and Kere. Ivy Falls is a stricly adult sim. It consists of two parts, one public part and a private part, the latter being separated from the public part by a pond. You can only reach it taking a boat or now during Winter by walking over the frozen pond. Please respect privacy and don’t go there.

Ivy Falls overview and gliders at the landing point

The public part is very picturesque and predestinated for those who have a passion for taking pictures (like me). You’ll find many spots with a great view or where you can cuddle, sit or mediate. There’s a lot to discover.

Teleporter tour exploring Ivy Falls (1): Gliders (upper left) / Bar (upper right) / Beach (lower left and right)

The landmark to Ivy Falls leads you to the top of a rock from which you have a good view over the sim. you can either take the teleport system to travel around or you use the glider up there and begin your exploring with flight around. I did both :-).

Teleporter tour exploring Ivy Falls (1): Campsite (upper left) / Sauna (upper right) / Bath house (lower left) / Boat pier (lower right)

The center of the public part is a small village with a lighthouse, a bar, a cafe, a gallery, and a barbershop, a bit aside of the center a bathhouse and a gym. On the other side of the village’s pier there’s a big beach with some beach houses. And if you take a walk outside of the village to the other side you can find a campsite and a sauna.

Ivy Falls bar and dungeon

Besides that I enjoyed the views and the love for details, with which Ivy Falls is built, the nature and the great views, I also focussed on the adult part of Ivy Falls, that is not only based on potential nudity at the beach during summer. But the adult part isn’t obvious on a first glance. Most prominent is the dungeon, which is in the backrooms of the bar. The bar itself is very nice and cosy, and of course I also liked the dungeon, which is really classic and offers enough opportunites for play.

Exploring Ivy Falls: Bath house (upper leaft) / Gallery (upper right) / kinky wardrobe (lower left) / old chapel (lower middle) / Barber shop (lower right)

But the dungeon isn’t the only kinky element. At one house I found a wardrobe which is just a hidden rack and naught me tried it out. I didn’t test, but I assume that the gym offeres some spots for play as well as the bath house might do. Looking for adult fun you should also try out the furniture of the many cosy spots. All of them offer not only cuddling animations but also adult poses and animations.

Impressions from my visit to Ivy Falls

Overall Ivy Falls has something on stock for everybody, be it kinky or not. For example the glider or roaming around with a boat, enjoying the nature or a coffee in the center of Ivy Falls. It’s beautiful and perfectly set for Winter right now. I intend to have a look at it in Summer or autumn again. I enjoyed my visit. Many thanks to Rekka and Kere for sharing the sim with the public.

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!
