Dio’s 11th year in Second Life Feb 11th, 2019 – Part II

Yesterday, I had my my 11th 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 closer family and the changes in my family. Today’s part 2 is about my simploring tours and other highlights of my 11th year.

Let me start with my simploring tours, and there were many! I admire the creativity of artists in this virtual world, I visited galleries like DaphneArts, La Masion D’Aneli, Diotima, Niflheimer Art Gallery, the Alphalune Creations gallery of Berry Richez, the VOIR gallery and lately the gallery of Gem Preiz. I explored 8 installations and 2 exhibtions of Cica Ghost, who always conjures a smile in my face. I attended several light shows of Mario2 Helstein.
I also saw and reported about quite some installations that were supported by the Linden Endowment for the Arts (LEA) like Gem Preiz’ Demiurge, The Labyrinth Experience or Light thoughts 4 and many more. In the meanwhile I know a little bit of the art scene in Second Life and I am looking forward with curiosity to my 11th year in SL and the art I’ll see.

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, Sweet Paradise of the Darks and Cake are examples for that. Most of these dreamworlds were homesteads: Maison de L’amitié, Wild Edge, Season of Joy, Hinansho, Glenrosa, Winter Moon, Adele, Baileys Norge, The Silent Mind, Chochou … just to name a few. In these sims I spent relaxing hours and enjoyed the views and the peace.
Some were really particular. I want to mention the Zany Zen Railway, a tiny, almost cute railroad crossing several sims. Zimminyville did impress me too with it’s two so different parts, the lovely picturesque town and the moon colony. And just rescently I visited The VR Planetarium Dome, not only an instructive place, but offering great views and also lot’s of fun.

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. The Beguinage of Bruges (in Belgium) was one of these impressing places and I spent some time learning about this place in the real world.
I never heard about the Isle of May, Achill Island, Black Bayou Lake or Rummu – now I have the feeling that I’ve been there already, not only because I read about these places and saw pictures but I got a 3-dimensional impression in Second Life.
Outstanding was also the visit of the Chateau of Clagny, a place which doesn’t exsist anymore. In Second Life it came back to existence.

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. Unfortunately some of these places don’t stay long like the Knot Society, Club Fem, Silent Manor or Mastering the Zen.
I discovered Meadow Rose, a perfect combination of a dreamworld, cosy and picturesque but also with it’s kinky corners. I was also impressed by The Citadel, a combination of art and kink. We visited the Tentacles, a park which was created by our friend Starbright Wingtips. We also visited the Steampunk prison of her.

Thank you all for building, for creating and for sharing your dreams with the rest of the community. And please apologize if I did not mention all of my tours, it were simply too many. I did really enjoy all of my simploring tours!

What else happened in this 11th year?
Again way more than I expected before reading back my own blog. And way more than I can summarize in this blog entry. We had several 10th anniversaries: Kitty’s 10th collaring, Jenny’s 10th rezzday, Jenny’s 10th collaring, Mistress Jenny’s and my 10th wedding anniversary. We also had 2 weddings at our sim, held in the chapel that was once errected by Danii Szydlowska.
Angelique performed at the Little Princess Ballet Academy Show in February 2018. She also spent a lot of time “working” as a maid at the Hilltop Manor located in The Apostasy. Angelique spent a short time serving at Sainte Agathe Castle. And together with slave Flo Angelique “worked” at the Paradise Finishing School.

slave Flo and AnneWanne were our twin drones and provided a lot of fun for us, mixing them up as Flo drone and Drone Flo. Later we had quite some time where our slaves were Rubber Rocket Dolls. Trying to tempt people touching the rocket boobs and getting Rubber Rocket Dolls themselves when the rockets hit them, was fun.
Our slave kelly was rented out for more than 2 weeks to Antony (antonygift) and made some new and exciting experiences away from her owners.

Mistress Jenny became more and more the (not secret) decider in the background as my submission to her got deeper and deeper. My red lights, when she takes full control were very intense, in particular as my submissive feelings got stronger each time. This way my green lights were highlights for me in this 11th year and I look forward to those Mistress will grant to me in my 12th year. Mistress Jenny now got a mesh head too, it was my present to her for her 10th rezzday in March 2018. She’s just adorable in every way!

We also still enjoy bondage in all forms. We tried out new racks and new toys like the serious plug pear or the serious nipple rings. The slaves, in particular slave kelly, made some incisive experiences with the pear.

I continued creating one “Enjoying Bondage” picture per month, that always also highlighted the activities of the according month.
Last but not least we had our great Friday night parties every Friday. We think that it might be the longest regular weekly party in whole Second Life with a duration of more than 11 years. Virgo is still our dj every week and we enjoy starting our weekends dancing and chatting amoung friends. Thank you, Virgo!

Mistress Jenny and I as well as the core members of our little family are embedded in a great community of friends, we know some of them way over a decade now, some for several years and some are new friends of ours. Even if not mentioned by name in this anniversary blog post, these friends do mean a lot to me. 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 11th year in Second Life and I look forward to the 12th!
Love from Diomita

Diary 2018 (104) June 14th/15th Ending my green light

Thursday, June 14th, I met with Jenny in the afternoon for an hour. We went to Heavy Bondage Club with slave kelly and met Angelique there. We also met gwenney (gwenney Resident) there. gwenney has been at our home several times lately and had attended our party last Friday. She’s a shy submissive, but it mustn’t be worng at all to observe first and from a safe distance and to apporach slowly. gwenney intended to visit our party again on Friday (she didn’t). We just had some chatting and enjoyed some eye-candy at Heavy Bondage Club, then we returned home.

At night Angelique, slave kelly and Rubber Rocket Doll slave Flo were inworld. Angelique was shopping and grabbed some demos again. She said, she should change her display name to “Angelique Demo”. Then she can simple wear the demos and her last name would be shown either as embroidery or as a hoover sign. What a funny idea! Anyway, our night started with a fashion show at our Stonehaven patio. Angelique found some nice clothes again but Jenny and I couldn’t decide yet, what she may buy.

After Angelique left I took Jenny, slave kelly and Rubber Rocket Doll slave Flo to Silent Manor, Adara’s new place, which I explored together with slave kelly already a few days before (see Simploring 2018 (52) June 11th – Silent Manor).
For Jenny and slave Flo it was their first visit. We visited the roof with all the cages, the manor itself, the dungeon maze, the cafe and the pool behind the manor. Close to the pool slave Flo got trapped and had a few minutes just hanging around. And slave kelly stepped into a tentacle trap and we had fun watching her as she was abused by the plant.

We visited Mesmerize Dungeon with slave Flo and slave kelly for a bit and when slave Flo went off to bed we took slave kelly home and stored her in the cage by the dance floor. Jenny and I retreated to the annex of our skybox, where I had my way with Jenny. She’s such a good and devoted sub! That was the right moment for me to end the green light and to replace her “Mine-collar” with her partnering collar. I was obliged to end the green light before our Friday night party anyway. Thank you for this anniversary green light, Jenny, my love, my world.

Friday afternoon, June 15th, we, gwenney, Rubber Rocket Doll slave Flo, slave kelly, Jenny and I had a nice chat and another little fashion show given by Angelique. That was quite relaxing. And at night we had our party again. The theme was vintage lingerie – and we all had fun.

We had a lovely and large crowd and enjoyed our start into the weekend.

Simploring 2018 (52) June 11th – Silent Manor

Silent Bondage Island was a quite popular adult homestead sim built, owned and operated by Adara Kattun. She lived there with her silent slaves and there were quite some people visiting regularly. You never heared her silent slaves talking as they were strictly gagged and at the landing point of Silent Bondage Island were big boards demanding to keep subs and slaves permanently gagged.
Silent Bondage Island was lovely and picturesque, and had steep rocks. On the top of the island was a villa and in the underground Adara had built a huge dungeon labyrinth with lots of cages. And there was this sound of birds, that accompanied you everwhere, you knew where you were even being blindfolded.
My family and I visited quite regularly and our Kitty was also often there and she had her times being restricted there by Adara. I won’t forget Adara ranting one day about Kitty that she had more than the 9 lifes of a cat.

Sadly Silent Bondage Island closed one day all of a sudden. But Adara built new places, that vanished again. Now there’s a new place – Silent Manor. Kitty spent already some time restricted there and when I met Kitty Sunday, June 10th, she just had managed to get free. I visited Silent Manor already before Kitty had her “vacation” there, but had not yet found the time or the right occasion to write about it.

Hence I asked Kitty to write something about Silent Manor. Here is her report:

So what is new about Adara’s latest sim?
As some of you may remember, Adara Kattun has been the brilliantly creative force behind several “Silent” sims.
Her latest home, Silent Manor, contains many of the beautiful style elements that visitors already admired in her previous homes, such as the gorgeous garden, Bondage Cafe, a boat dock, a hippodrome and other race-horse training facilities, a harbor, an elegantly decorated villa with an inviting swimming pool in the back and, of course, many really cool traps scattered across the area. A must-visit is the roof-terrace where cage-enthusiasts can find a carefully curated selection of some of SL’s nicest cages and cells.
Of course the real fun starts once you go underground, into the dungeon area. Only prisoners may enter. Therefore, confess your sins, take the restraints, make sure your relay is on and tp to your fate. Please note that there is a separate area reserved for Adara’s slaves. If you’re not brave enough to tp, you can dare to explore by foot and discover the immense variety of cells, cages, restraints and other artifacts of the dungeon. Which ever path you choose, expect to find yourself in a situation that you didn’t quite expect.

Thank you, Kitty!

No blog entry without pictures! After I got Kitty’s report, I visited Silent Manor together with slave kelly on Monday, June 11th, mainly to take some pictures.
We used the teleport pad, that is right in the entrance hall of the manor, to visit the cage area on the roof, the prison, and the slaves area. The prison and the slave’s area are under the manor and those familar with dungeon labyrinth at Silent Bondage Island will recognize a lot of it.
Of course you can also enter the dungeon labyrinth using stairs, if you find them. One possibility is to enter through the pod prison, the entrance to it is left of the manor. But the door from there to the dungeon labyrinth is closed from this sine. There are lots of racks and cells and cages everywhere on the whole plot as well as in the manor itself. I’m happy that Adara has also saved the Bondage Cafe from Silent Bondage Island, a place I really like.

Once again, Adara created a really great place, she’s a great builder. Everything has it’s place and she used the whole plot very smart. The sound of the Harbour bell is also back again. The manor itself is furnished and decorated very stylish and elegant. And besides all the kinky stuff related to cages, slaves, bondage and pony play, Silent Manor is again beautiful and a nice place to be and to watch.

Thank you Adara for your work and in particular for sharing your place with the public. Visitors be careful – keep subs and slaves gagged and be aware of RLV traps, you might book a longer vacation.
