Its a very dirty island

I would not feel comfortable showing you what goes on inside this SIM.  The long distance shot is perfect, the people who made this SIM has good reason to seek out privacy.

I am no prude in Second Life.  Consenting adults have the right to create what ever kind of pornographic performances they agree to.  Lets be honest, porn is very big on the Internet and Second Life helps people produce more interactive porn outside of the control of a production house or concerns of human trafficing or exploitation that dog online porn.

But there is a great deal of lurid attachment projected in to Second Life's space from the fantasy space of thousands of users.  In this way Second Life becomes a kind of shared dream space, a collective fantasy where the more primal desires of many users get played out.

In this way SL engages users in their fantasy lives, while TV on the other hand tends to distance people. We all have guilty TV shows we like.  I love to watch Sex in the City and 16 and Pregnant because I hate them so much.  We project emotions and desires in to TV and in this way we consume our own desires, we thus get the illusion of detachment from our desires.  Second Life on the other hand allows us to act out our desires, which mean we can't disown them and sometimes are forced to confess that the desires being acted out our our own.
