I didn’t realize it at first, but one of the reasons I was born here in SL is to make friends. I was over two weeks old before I finally made my first real friend, and it happened in the weirdest of places!
Promise not to think the worst of me, but it happened in a place called the Carnal City sim. I stumbled into it by accident – I was searching for something else and it showed up in the search (yeah, likely story I know!). Curious I went there. Now this is an *adult* sim, so it’s not for the faint of heart, but if you can get past your prejudices it’s fascinating! Designed by a lady name Dura Voss, it’s a true masterpiece. It simulates a run-down ghetto area with amazing detail. I’ve been wandering the city for about three or four days now, and still find new places and details! Trash in the gutters, litter, decayed buildings, and of course people doing *things* right in the middle of it all. Hey, I said it was adult!
A typical street scene in Carnal City!
The weird thing, though, is that I have found that it is one of the best places I’ve found to meet people! There’s a fairly steady flow of traffic through there, but not enough to make the lag too bad or be socially overwhelming for a wallflower like me. In about three days I’ve met four of the sweetest girls there. They’ve taken me under their wing and helped me so much! They’ve made my life a bit more complicated though, I can tell you that! I used to be so shy and retiring, but they’re bringing me out. Nothing like blasting naked through the streets on a motorcycle with another girl (you know who you are CR *grin*) to get your confidence up. Did I say complicated? Sorry, I meant wonderful!
As you can see, it’s all about role play. It’s fun to go there and release your inner bimbo, so to speak. I have to admit, I’ve bought a couple of trashy outfits to wear when I go trolling there! It just makes you feel so alive.
Yours truly. A night out on the town!
It’s a place where you can let your inhibitions go and just live in the moment. I can do things there I’d never do anywhere else.
All thanks to a few good friends I’ve made there. Of course I’m not done yet! I intend to make more friends there if they’ll have me! Sorry, I’m not going to give names or pictures of them, unless they tell me it’s okay. I respect their privacy too much for that. If you’re in the mood, though, drop in and say hello – I may very well be there at any given moment. Don’t be bashful – I’m not near as much any more. One hint – especially aimed at the guys – check a girl’s profile first. She will often give you an idea of whether or not she wants to be approached, and sometimes even how. Might keep you out of trouble, and off a few mute lists!
So, drop by, stay awhile! Shop the shops – yes they sell the things you’d think for the most part. In fact that’s where my dress in the picture comes from! If you enjoy it – and I think you will, be sure to leave a tip for Dura in one of her tip jars around the town. I have!
P.S. – almost forgot! Get there by searching for carnal city, search for my profile in-world (it’s in my picks), or go there directly from here.
