In the realms of a murky darkness is where the mysterious awaits. Is it dark and murky or is it madness. Or are you the mad person here?
Is that a tentacle curling up around your thigh or have you lost the plot?

I have said before many times that there is so much to do and see in Second Life. The grid is large and the organic nature of evolution of landscapes makes Second Life an ever changing world one just can’t explore enough to keep up and see everything.
And then there are social groups and clubs from sailing to aviation and dancing. Also groups for families, fundraising events and more adult activities. There is so much to do. So many interesting people and activities.
Today I would like to share with you a social group in Second Life which has to be one of the friendliest and active groups I have experienced.
Drivers of Second Life is an active group with several team members who work together to provide a new weekly drive across parts of Second Life. Created by Christi Charron and Patty Croquet, a new scripted hud is provided free weekly which directs you to your destinations.
Drive activities involve driving road vehicles, watercraft and aircraft. While you are expected to have your own vehicles, you don’t have to spend much at all and even better, sometimes there are free vehicles given along the way for people who don’t have a vehicle and also a prize at the end of a drive. As example, I have collected cars, one or two trains, amphibious cars and a plane. Not to forget all terrain vehicles.
Some drives are just a single activity for the week. A recent drive was a story and adventure taking several weeks of driving with each drive a new hud. When I joined Drivers of Second Life a few months ago, they were in the midst of a secret mission. I don’t know much I missed out on but it was a lot of fun and I have met many people.
The most recent activity involved flying where we needed to land a plane of our choice to show we could progress to the next level. The first was a simple landing at Hollywood air mall. The second was flying a small plane to land on a short dirt strip. The third and final landing an emergency landing on a short length of narrow road which was heaps of fun.
One of the funnest activities group activities I have participated was a long weekend camp involving a drive to the camp site and setting up tent. Some of us went along in the first group, some in the second planned wave. Others like myself traveled over in my own time as I was sound asleep when they started. You know, silly timezones and all.
It was fascinating to see the different caravans, camper vans, winnebago’s and tents were set out across the campsite. We received a cosy caravan on reaching our camping destination which I loved. It also came in handy as I didn’t own one at all.
Camping activities included games, dancing to tunes played by a rocking DJ, an all terrain driving challenge with a vehicle provided that we could keep, a bull riding challenge and of course, you’re own fun. This has to be one of the best weekends I have spent in Second Life. I could have jumped into pixel land and lived it.
With approximately 150 to 250 people participating weekly, Drivers of Second Life is the most active group I have come across. Members are friendly and helpful.
While Christi Charron and Patti Croquet are the main two organisers, it takes a whole team of people to make this so successful including owners/builders in Second Life(ie: Aleksandr String and Robi Rossini) who participate and John Sheppard who has been awesome in helping with directing traffic. Some Second Life businesses sponsor as part of advertising which helps as a two way street such as Second Life Aviation’s ‘Music to Fly By(MtFB)’ radio with Luke Flywalker providing an online stream for us to listen to while participating.

When Christi and Patty, both from Second Life Cheerleader Squad(SLCS) created and sent out the message that they were starting a driving group with a scripted hud, they were not expecting the quick and sudden turn out of people wanting to participate. A group which has only continued to expand and move forward.
If you’re looking for an active group full of the funnest people you’ll meet in Second Life, come join us. I’ll post a weblink below. And don’t worry if you missed a drive in the week of release. Join the group, collect your hud from group notices and take the drive on your own or get friends involved to join you. We’ve even rocketed into space to explore a space station. Each drive hud is left for people to use with a group notice sent so people know when each drive is being removed.
Exploring and adventuring with Drivers of Second Life is a wonderful way to find new places to explore or you might find a shop you want to come back to visit.
Today I attended the 5th Annual Larry Armchair Event which is held as part of the Relay For Life for American Cancer Society to raise money to support people with cancer. With the support of Second Life Aviation and Music to Fly By(MtFB), Larry’s Armchair Event set off with tremendous support.
Starting at Flying Burrito Brothers Unity Airport where a chair with balloons securely attached awaited us, a flock of excited aviators were keen to start this group flight to celebrate the very real trip taken by Larry Walters on the 36th Anniversary of his pioneering armchair flight on 2nd of July, 1982.
Flying Burrito Brothers Unity Airport
Departing at 1pm today, 2 July 2018(SLT), one excited traveler made a call out for wine and wine she was delivered. Thank you JɅƳĐΕƝ Ŧαггση for the wine. It made my wine drunken yelling at boaters that much more enjoyable. *hic*
We took off heading east to the Blake Sea, traveling far overseas, spilling the odd drop of wine into the ocean to keep the fish happy(why should fishies miss out?), floating away past Hollywood Airport and over the Rainbow Sails Yacht Club. I was going to yell out to a fellow rainbow sailor but the wind was blowing my words back in my mouth to be heard.
Rainbow Sails Yacht Club
Typically, my yacht was hiding from a wined up balloon riding aviator as you can see in the photo above. Well, you can’t as she’s hiding.
We then headed around and drifted as the winds blew us around facing west, or heading west as I’m sure I was drifting while facing in all directions. As we drifted in the air among curious birds and the occasional hovering helicopter, we passed Honah Lee Field Airport and over the Island of Newbs at Blake Sea – Sirens Isle. I tipped a little spare wine as I passed over. I hope the receivers of raining wine realised it was wine.
Landing at Komatsu Regional Airport
And then with the amazing power of the wind, an ever changing beautiful creature of the sky, we were blown south west where we landed at Komatsu Regional Airport where we celebrated a successful balloon armchair flight with Luke Flywalker blasting us away with rocking tunes.
Somewhere between the start and finish, a couple of us including myself somehow lost our clothing. Whether it was the wind or the wine that dissolved our clothing is up for discussion but thankfully we, Captain Street Reaper and I were wearing our swimwear in case of an emergency watery landing. Nice budgie smuggler, Captain.
All up we had a brilliant day, the sun was bright, the skies were clear, the wind was helpful and the wine, well let’s say the wine was awesome.

Previously I wrote about being caught in a D/s relationship and the ramifications of being found out but what about the benefits of a healthy sexual relationship?
What I am going to write about does not require a D/s relationship but it does help. It helps a lot. You can do this with a partner or on your own. I recommend both with a partner and alone.
This is for women and men. It does not matter if you worship pussy, cock, feet or any other body part. You can do this in your virtual world as well your material world. Practice them both together and apart.
Now I’m going to be honest with you again. I have been sexually active since I was in my first year of high school at the age of twelve years old, in the year I turned thirteen late in the year. I was effectively twelve years old. Now before anyone panics and says I’m encouraging underage sex, the average age when a person first has sex is sixteen to eighteen years old which is a good age. It’s the preferred age for the sake of emotional maturity. I just was too horny to wait. And let’s face it, my girlfriend was too much to resist. Not even the resistance could.
We were sexually active younger in the 80’s, with the fear of HIV/AIDS not pushing teenagers into delaying sex until the late part of the 80’s or the early 90’s.
What is edging?
Edging is when you or the person you’re with arouses you to have you close to an orgasm only to stop just before you point of no return. Allowing your body to relax before starting again.
What the benefits of edging?
There are many benefits. The main benefits are that you learn how to better control your orgasms, pro-long your orgasm, makes your orgasm intense, teaches you and your partner about your body(and theirs if you and partner play both ways) and you will find yourself experiencing an after sex bliss like you haven’t experienced before.
This takes time and practice. I highly recommend this for men so they too can learn to hold their orgasm as long as possible to increase the pleasure of their partner. You start by delicately touching your body with your finger tips across your face, neck and shoulders. Along your arms and your chest. Down your tummy and thighs, the sides of your torso and buttocks. Touch your lips. Always waiting till you feel your senses are alert before you touch your pussy or your cock. Slowly progressing till you can have a tight grip, always stopping just before you reach your point of no return where you relax and brush the energy concentrated in your genital area by lightly moving your hands over your body from just above your genitals, upwards to spread your intensity across your body until your body can’t take any more where you whole body feels utterly full and your whole body trembles and you experience a whole body orgasm.
How does a cute kitty like you, like me take this to a virtual world like Second Life?
Whether you voice or type in Second Life, there are ways to express ourselves beyond words. We express ourselves from the clothing we are wearing(unless we’re naked) and the body language we carry in our poses and animations. We can do this without anybody knowing and this is where I come in from the view point as a submissive whose been getting off as a bottom since 1984. OMGoddess that makes me feel old.
My girlfriend/domme when we were in our early 20’s in the early 1990’s would take me out under submission without any obvious tell tale signs of collaring unless you knew the signals. There was no definitive submissive collar. No leash. No vocal addressing as Mistress or Pet for others to hear. The item of being under public submission may be purely emotional, it might be a piece of jewelry or an item of clothing. Maybe the way the hair style.
There was one moment when a woman, obvious to us she was a domme who approached my domme where we are Circular Quay in Sydney, telling her how sweet I looked and that she had not seen a pet look so sexy under public submission as I looked down, feeling my cheeks on fire. And the tone in my Mistress’s voice telling me that she was motivated even more so with her fine pet receiving a compliment whilst on public display, discreet as we were.
This is the level of discretion I enjoy in Second Life. I wear a collar which is visual to all but that does not mean I am under submission at the time I am seen. I might be Miss or on my own when I am under submission but you would not know because every message is held in private, shared by instant message. Messages which works for you and your partner/s.
In your vision a person under submission might look free yet in their mind, they are as bound as if they are cuffed, locked to a post or strapped to a bed.
While out in public, my girlfriend would speak to me so I would be feeling hot inside. My tummy would be buzzing, my legs tingling as heat kept my inner thighs feeling warm and wet. She knew how to speak to keep me under absolute control. She could take me close to climax with only her words only to bring back down as we mingled in public. Never allowed to cum unless instructed and even then, it had to be quiet with a disciplined facial expression so nobody else would know. Or on a train where you can busy your face in their neck as if you’re resting on a pillow.
You can pull your emotional state into Second Life. There are times when we meet people or already speak with someone whose presence makes us fill with sensual desire.
Can you use your mind, your imagination to bring yourself close to orgasm only to stop just in time? Try it. It takes practice. I would practice it on the train to work or any other public space.
For clitoral stimulation while sitting at your computer, I suggest a ribbed sex toy like the glass dildo above for self edging. A clean non-fluffy towel on the chair and lay your ribbed toy lengthwise underneath so you use your hips to stimulate your clit, leaving the end accessible to hold with your hand when you need reposition it in place or to slide her in your vagina when you’re ready for the next level of edging. For men, use your hand, a fleshlight or other toy.
Bring this to your Second Life and make the most out of your discreet sex play while out in public places like SL dancing clubs. This is a whole different game on a higher level of seduction than avatars falling down from an orgasm or being snared by a plant for everyone to see. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. What I’m promoting in this article is subtle, unseen to anyone but those involved when done right. And you will need a fresh towel. I promise, that towel will need washed.
One real life day of public edging with my girlfriend in the early 90’s included a ride on a Sydney ferry as her words and the water tested my self control. Followed by an evening ride home on a train where I was finally permitted to relax a little. Made more challenging by the young woman sitting behind us with her boyfriend who didn’t realise we could hear her teasing him into a state of arousal as she described what she was going to do to him when she got home.
The sound of her voice, her cute reflection in the window, the scent and sound of my domme beside me as I snuggled in, wondering when I would be permitted to climax as my mind grew foggy, clinging onto my Miss, my breath on her neck.
In a forced break from Second Life blogging with my gaming computer in for warranty repair, I thought I would write about being caught in a D/s relationship after reading a young woman’s account of how her and her boyfriend’s kink life was discovered by his mother and the ramifications.
Just in time for America’s Pride Month which is also being held in Second Life this week until the 24th of June, 11amSLT to 11pmSLT.
My first girlfriend and I were more than just close friends. We were lovers joined at both ends of the whip and bound by love. A relationship connected so intensely that we are still close friends today, serving each other as Domme and Submissive for much of our lives.
Without hiding details and over sharing, we became friends and lovers in our first year of high school where we met. Her parents were liberated while my family was socially conservative with an expectation on girls to remain pure while boys were expected to learn how to be men by having as much sex as they could with other women.
We were a few months in self discovery where I lay on my bed, completely naked with soft material strong enough to bind my wrists and ankles to my bed without hurting as I wore her boxing gloves to further disempower me. I remember the darkness from closed eyes and being unable to speak for the gag as she sat over me when I felt a sudden foreign presence as if it barged in.
I opened my eyes to see her, my girlfriend watching me with her cheeky smile on her face. And then I looked over to see him. My brother closest to my age, three years older than me standing there with an expression saying that this was the last thing he expected to see. His younger and only sister strapped to her bed, gagged under her girlfriend’s whim.
I always feared this but she didn’t know the fear in the back of my mind, coming from a free thinking sexually liberated household. To her credit, she stood up and walked over to him and spoke with him with the ruler in her hand that made the clearly visible red lines on my thighs. She stood there confidently wearing nothing but her underwear as she spoke to him before expertly shooing him out of my bedroom and pushed my table against the door so we could be left alone where she made me yell and scream, knowing that my brother would have heard. As uncomfortable as this reads and felt, the natural domme shone as she put me through shaming that pushed both of us beyond our boundaries.
As it turned out, he was okay with this. As it turned out, he’s bisexual. As it turned out… I’ll mention this later.
We decided to take our dirtiest play to her home where I felt more comfortable, away from being further discovered by those whom I feared would find out. Like my eldest brother who had already said many times that homosexuals should be put in prison or killed to keep the streets clean. It was the 1980’s after all.
While nobody ever walked in on us at her home where she lived with her mum and dad, there was one day when her mum asked us to sit with her for a chat while nobody else was around.
We sat at the dining table where there two bags placed there for us. They were gifts. I heard her mum tell us everything in the bag was for us and that she knew we were having sex. I remember hearing her words to her daughter, “We know you’re having sex because we can hear it. There’s a gag in there for (my name) so we can get some sleep at night.”
I was very nervous. I was feeling scared while my girlfriend emptied both bags as her mum and I sat watched, explaining what some of the items were. Many nights were spent there. I must have spent most weekends there.
Being able to explore in the safety of her parents home was something I cherish to this day. As well as the not so safe things we did elsewhere.
My home was violent for me. It was dangerous and I suffered the repercussions for being who I am, I never let my girlfriend know much of, and none at all with her family as I found a middle aged lesbian couple who could truly understand and guide me(not sexual). They give me the life tools I needed to survive.
This young woman whose blog I read today, her boyfriend dumped her at the behest of the bullying of his family when his mum came across their shared kink blog while her mum gave her all the love and support she needed. Her mum loved her and gave her the trust she needed, just as my girlfriend’s mum did for her.
It’s hard to know who to tell when your home environment isn’t safe and those you turned to for help all rejected your pleas, only to leave you experience further abuse.
In hindsight I wish I told my girlfriend what happened to me instead of turning cold and unresponsive to her. Her parents would have helped as well just as the mother of the young blogger did. I could have told her as I did later that it was my brother who did not mind us being together who assaulted me under the orders of our mother for being me.
I said earlier that the bond between my girlfriend and I was strong. We drifted a little until I told her what happened to me. We reconnected as friends. I fell in love with another woman who I spent a lot of time in our Owner/Kitty relationship until I panicked. Yes, healing takes time. But my girlfriend from high school supported me and soon I was owned by her once again but not as girlfriends.
She was my Mistress.
She owned me.
I was hers.
I had my own bedroom in the home where she lived with her husband and children. She had places to keep me when we visited their semi rural property on acreage. I was under ownership lasting well over a decade.
Even when I moved away to live in a fake marriage with a man who was hiding in his closet but we did care for each other, she was still my Mistress and if she booked me a flight to stay with her, I was on that plane bringing only what she told me to bring. Often nothing but the clothing I was wearing. The clothing she instructed me to wear.
She released me two years ago due to my health and risk of injury to myself if we were to continue. Our love for each as friends today is stronger than it was as lovers in high school. She’s part of my first life’s inner circle of friends of my girlfriend and mine. A tight knit and kinky as latex, leather & lace sisterhood of lesbian and bisexual women.
D/s relationships come in many forms. A D/s relationship may be soft and sweet through to as punishing as a mutual consensual agreement between all parties may be. Some involve sex, some don’t. Some are purely psychological/emotional while some are as physical as they wish it to be.
I enjoy serving two Mistresses in Second Life whose personalities and styles are far different from each other. I love them both. And not least, I love my love, Abby in Second Life. I live such a complicated life in the eyes of many. And no, people who see this as me being someone whose constantly horny are incorrect. Please don’t judge what you don’t understand.
If you should learn that someone you know is involved in a D/s relationship, don’t prejudge them and don’t intrude. Ask if you may ask about their D/s before you ask and please keep it respectful. None of this is abusive as long as there is mutual consent and each party respects each other’s boundaries.
And if you or you know someone who are young, be they in their early teens or even early twenties, I urge you to be open to them. Self discovery can be painful. Especially in this era of rising global religious fascism, it is important to be inclusive.
If you are in Second Life, please consider visiting this year’s Second Pride event currently held until 24th June and donate as little or as much as you wish or can afford. This year’s Second Pride event is fundraising for The Trevor Project. Partying 11amSLT to 11pmSLT.
I apologise for not blogging during these two weeks during Second Pride and Second Life’s 15th Birthday Celebration due to a faulty computer. My computer is being sent in for a warranty repair so I will be offline one or two weeks.
This could not have come at a worse time for Second Life activities as I am in SL15B’s media group and also in Second Pride’s Blogger team as well as a sponsor for this year’s Second Pride event.
I’m disappointed and will leap back into destination and event blogs when I am able to log back into Second Life once my computer returns in a healthy state.
June 1969 saw the Stonewall Riots(Manhattan, USA) which gave birth to the rise of rights for LGBTQI communities through global activism. It is for this reason America celebrates their Pride Month in June and we in Second Life also celebrate Pride in June, Second Life being American founded, owned and located.
Last year’s Second Pride was very exciting for me as it was my first virtual pride celebration to attend. It was like experiencing a reawakening of who I am.
There was the moment of love where a gay man broke down through all the built up guilt and abuse placed on him over the years. The biggest virtual group hug supported him offering all the love and support he had been denied all his life, I was reminded why I love my rainbow communities. And in days where there are Governments, political movements and some religious institutions pushing hard to bring back all of the bigotry long defeated, now is more important than ever to stand proudly together and say ‘This is me’.
2018’s Second Pride Event, ‘This is me’ is a celebration of community with monies raised to support The Trevor Project;
“Founded in 1998 by the creators of the Academy Award®-winning short film TREVOR, The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) young people under 25.”
The party is on at Bay City’s 10th Anniversary Parade and Party as we celebrate ten years of the best Second Life community in Second Life. Yes, I know I’m biased but not because Cafe Sheree is based here. Bay City rocks as the community spirit here is very impressive.
I quickly felt at home at Bay City.
We gathered at Bay City Municipal Park at Harwich from 12NoonSLT. Everyone was in a jovial mood as we prepared for the parade under the esteemed leadership of Bay City’s Marianne McCann whose our Not Quite the Mayor.
Then off we left. A parade of fun loving Bay Citirians who showed off their Bay Pride.
There were four parade groups. Each of us strutting our stuff. Each of us with our own Bay Pride on as we headed to Bay City Showgrounds.
What a crowd. So many happy here wearing their Bay Pride. It makes me happy that I chose Bay City for Cafe Sheree. I got a chance to wiggle with well known Second Life adventurer/blogger, Daniel Voyager. Hey may not be hopping mad but he has the hippity hop.
Lindens also attended to party with us. Yay!
Four hours of entertainment with live performers and DJ’s.
