What’s the difference between kinky and erotic?
Well, imagine a beautiful woman with soft skin and beautiful smelling perfume, and she traces an ostrich feather gently across your lips. That’s erotic. If she uses the whole ostrich, that would be kinky.
When it comes to fun and games, the metaverse is a broad church; choose your comfort level and leave others to find theirs, yet, one can't help noticing that much of the 'mature' entertainment on offer is, well, more sad than Sade. Not so at Roissy. A BSDM estate owned by Megan Fabre and Marian Wildcat, this is a mature area in every way: the eroticism is not (oh go on, let me get it out of my system) 'in your face'... unless you want it to be; but it is more than that, an exquisitely walkable build where tolerance and good manners are prized and ever present. Roissy is styled after the 1954 novel L'Histoire d'O (The Story of O) by Pauline Réage. The French novel won plaudits and caused outrage from the fifties onwards, becoming an international best seller in the 70's. While possibly more read about than read, its own history finds resonance today as literary taboos, questions of taste, violence and censorship continue to challenge and intrigue thoughtful people worldwide. How appropriate then that Second Life should have such a literary park, in which these ideas and more can be virtually explored.
Exploration is encouraged here. Roleplay is welcomed but not enforced, and visitors who repect the rules (avoiding things like child avatars, age play, ridicule and general griefing, obviously) are welcome. Intimate matters are kept to the private homes and the Chateau, and while some of the ladies in public places may be topless that's as osé as it gets, making it a pleasant place for those like me on a day trip. I covered up in this lovely Kouse Singh dress and TP'd into the grounds of the chateau. My first encounter was with a silent gentleman, was he sporting a tail, a whip, or just pleased to be there? I decided not to ask; what really got my attention were the lovely buildings and flowers.
Magnus Stovall: It was Marian Wildcat's idea. She set the Story of O theme and did most of the building: we have about 2000 members in the group. Sim Roissy 2 and Le Chateau are by the Governess of Roissy, Duesen Marx, but the overall build is only loosely based on the story of O.
Not a ... slavish recreation, then. I noted emphasis seems to be on beautiful rental houses here, rather than the endless stream of empty shops or pointless 'meeting rooms' you see on so many sims.
Qual'è la differenza tra un atto 'kinky' e un atto erotico?
Bene, se una bellissima donna divinamente profumata e con la pelle morbida passa una piuma di struzzo sulle tue labbra, quello sarebbe un atto erotico. Se invece passa sulle tue labbra tutto lo struzzo, quello sarebbe ... 'kinky'.
