Location: On the beach snuggling in my basket
Soundtrack of the Minute: Fünf Sterne Deluxe – Willst du mit mir gehn?
No worries I am not dead and I haven’t dropped blogging, but the past weeks saw me ill to a certain degree (actually far more then I would have liked), and so I didn’t get in the swing of things really. But now I am back and I thought why not pick up again with Berry’s current Challenge 😉
This week she challenged us with Unspoken Rules in Second Life. And yes there are quite some in my eyes, and some people really need them clubbed in their delicate heads with a baseball bat. So let us see what kind of unspoken rules I have up the sleeve (some might be a bit adult ;)). For the full rules, and her answers to them, see Strawberry’s post on the Challenge. I will post 5 rules as well (even though I can think of various others, but i will keep it short ;)).
Do not jump on furniture unasked and do not start running intimate animations
Jumping onto the same furniture with a person in itself without being asked is just rude. Highjacking the Poseball Menu and starting intimate animation is an absolute no go. Nobody likes creeps doing that
Do not have your weapon at attention all the time
It is sad, that this has to be said in 2017 still. Nobody wants to see your perma erection, especially not if you are sporting some 2006 oldschool freebie wiener. And yes this goes also for areas where nudity is encouraged.
Consent is nothing that is granted automatically or by a certain dresscode
Just because I am in a nude area, or have my slutty dress day, it doesn’t mean, that I am available for everyone to be used, as their imagination tells them. Just as a hint … those are real people … not rubber dolls.
Give people space, even in a public place, and do not invade their conversation unasked
It is just rude, to invade other people’s conversations unasked. Make yourself noticed and asked if you may participate. Show some common decency. When approaching the people do not crawl over them, it is just a nono once again.
Keep your gestures for yourself
Who has ever said that the massive and repetitive use of gestures is a desirable behavior? It is not … it kills the atmosphere, it disrupts conversations and everybody older then a year has probably seen most of them anyway. So go to some third rate club and spam your gestures there.
