Discussion at LnL: Intimacy in Second Life

This past Tuesday, we met at LnL to discuss the topic Intimacy in Second Life. It seems to be easier and easier to accept that one can develop a strong level of intimacy with someone in a virtual world using only technological means. In RL intimacy may be roughly defined as a close interpersonal relationship involving an emotional and a physical connection. In Second Life most of those present thought that it was all about the emotional side but not only cybersex and that the physical aspect would have to be present in RL sooner or later for a full relationship. As in SL there seem to be less restrictions, the group thought that this may be one of the reasons why relationships in SL are shorter and less stable. One of the most important issues in an intimate relationship is trust. All agreed that anonimity adds a factor of unbalance to intimacy in SL. Most defended that in many ways for many people SL filled an unmet need for intimacy in RL, becoming an alternative, hopefully a vehicle to intimacy and not a substitute. The topic of intimacy in a virtual world is both complex and intriguing. In a Lounge filled with people (extra seats had to be rezzed!) it was certainly a very interesting discussion!

Discussion last Tusday - Fashion, style and appearance!

We gathered at LnL to discuss the topic "Lean and mean! - appearance, fashion and style in SL!". Fashion seems to be booming in SL. We might say that this puts a great emphasis on appearance and style in-world. Perhaps even a strain on those residents who are not into fashion. Most of the participants thought that being fashion-sensitive in Second Life was not that important, despite the fact that assumptions are made about people/avatars based on the way they look. All agreed that SL offered the possibility to make use of unlimited creativity resources and that it is certainly cheaper than RL, making it possible to give a unique perspective of oneself and to experiment. It was interesting to see that for some the style they have chosen in SL now influences the way they dress in RL! Not many believed that brands are important in SL; they stated that a name may draw attention and make one feel interested and curious about what is being produced, but they wouldn't purchase a fashion product based on its brand. It was also mentioned that it may not be clear to a newbie easy it is to customize the avatar and the endless possibilities available; as a response to that several members of the group mentioned mentoring and how important it is to guide people through the first steps in SL. The group also discussed briefly fashion shows and the imapct they have in the SL community; most agreeded that they have a very small impact and become a bit irrelevant as there are no seasons in SL! Food for thought! For others who participated in fashion shows, this was an interesting yet stressful experience. The group was supportive of fashion designers encouraging them to continue to create thus contributing to the evolution of SL. To conclude, appearance is important in SL for most of its residents! Fashion and style are means to fully enjoying Second Life, for some of us one of the most interesting ways of experiencing SL, for others simply an extravaganza! Whichever the case, enjoy and dare to be different! Join us for a new topic and an amazing group of people for an interesting and lively discussion at LnL! :)
PS: Enjoy the beautiful photo of LnL's Lounge London always surprises us with!

WOW!!! LnL is in Showcase!

A few days ago, LnL Square received the unexpected visit of Limey Linden (photo above)!

Limey was at LnL following up on our application to Showcase and, WOW!!... as you can see in the amazing photos London took for us, LnL is now featured in SL's Destination Guide/Showcase, a selection of the hottest spots in Second Life! In-world, you can find us in Search > Showcase > Fashion & Style! We are thrilled by the recognition and we take this as an acknowledgment of our project and a strong incentive! LnL is the result of a lot of work and energy, care and respect for all our group members, visitors and clients. Join us in celebrating this achievement! We invite you to drop by the store for a visit and to keep an eye on this blog for upcoming events! :)


Lo and behold!
This is inspiring, inexplicable, frightening... The strangest place in LnL Square... An eery room filled with darkness... We dare you to find it! It is the beginning of the hunt for a heart.. a tainted heart... On the photo (from left to right), the prizes of the Lovebirds Couples Hunt, for the Tainted Love Hunt and for the That's Amore Hunt.. enjoy... And... be very careful... You never know what might jump from the darkest corners and grab you... *evil laughter*!!!!!

And we talked about Profiles in Second life!

Tuesday's topic was Mirror, mirror on the wall... - profiles and their secrets!. Profiles are an interesting feature in Second Life. They provide room for reality or fantasy. They reveal more than we think (or wish?!) about us! All participants agreed that Profiles are an important way to take a first glimpse at the person you are talking to. Many decided not to fill in any RL (Real Life) information to preserve their anonimity and privacy; for those who consider SL an extension of RL, RL details often appear in their Profiles. The group talked a lot about Picks. It was interesting to see that this tab is used to, as it was mentioned, tell a story, the story of each one's SL experience. Many also use this tab as a library of resources, while others use it as a photo album of friends and SL family. The tab 1st Life was also discussed. The group agreed that it should be filled in with caution, especially when RL photos, residence locations, etc. are shown. As a conclusion, Profiles are very interesting! Whether they are funny, annoying, creative, silent or inspirational, Profiles mirror the person behind the avatar and opening a Profile could just be the beginning of an interesting adventure! If you haven't done so yet, make it a habit of taking a look at other's Profiles and you will enjoy getting to know others a bit better! :) Join us next time for a new topic at LnL's Lounge! A final word of thank you to London who took this cool photo (above) and who does all the cool photos of the discussions! :)
