Hi everyone,

My name is Marik and I'm currently doing a study on gay cybercultures, specifically focusing on Second Life.

The purpose of this study is to examine how people experience and express their sexuality in virtual environments. The goal of the project is to gain a better understanding of the experiences of residents, as well as how virtual environments and communities are formed and interact.

I am conducting interviews between avatars and I am calling for participants that are over the age of 18, identify their avatar as a gay male, are frequent residents, and enjoy having sex in-world.

If you have any questions or would like to to participate, contact my avatar Marik Crumb or drop me an email at: secondlifestudy.sfsu@gmail.com

Thanks for your time!

I joined a while back but never posted an intro...

Second Life name: Rayanne Graff
Age: 30
Gender: queer
Sexuality: pansexual
Second Life Partner:
Run a business in SL?: my RL gf (SL Jinx Paz) co-owns Club Lecimetiere
-- if so, what kind?: It's a goth/punk/bdsm dance club
SL Interests: vampires, dancing, shopping, playing slingo & pizzeria

Has anyone found any gay/lesbian clubs in SL that draw a big crowd? It's been months since I've even looked for one. I did find an area with rainbows everywhere that seemed to be a club but it was completely deserted. I love Club Lecimetiere because they are welcoming of everyone but it would be really cool to find a completely gay club ala QAF's Babylon or a dyke bar.

I guess I'll see if there's any interest in having a community dedicated to gay members of Second Life. If you join, it would be appreciated if you could fill out the following information. It's not required or anything, but people might find it helpful.

Second Life name: Ren Eliot
Age: 21
Gender: male
Sexuality: gay
Second Life Partner: Ernesto Augustus
Run a business in SL?: no
-- if so, what kind?: n/a
SL Interests: making friends, having fun, being silly, shopping

More things may be added to that list if I think of them.

Well, I'll post some pictures of my avatar while I'm here. They aren't cropped, so expect them to be large if you click the cut. (And yes, that's a rule. Put pictures under a cut, please.)

Introducing Ren EliotCollapse )

Feel free to post any pictures from SL you want here. If they contain mature content, please say so in the cut text. There shouldn't be anyone underage here since SL is for people 18+, but you never know. Maybe we'll get some members from the teen grid, after all.

Oh, and I'll work on fixing up the journal layout when I get home from work tomorrow. I know it's ugly right now.
