Time for something different. Lately I became more and more fascinated by the concept of banishment.
Banishment means being sealed in a futuristic full body isolation Bane-Suit with no IMs, no ability to speak and several other restrictions. The idea is loosely based on the novel Eudeamon where this kind of banishment is used to punish criminals.

So one day - after I had a 5 hrs test-run of the demo - I gathered my courage, bought a Bane Helmet and asked my Mistress to lock me in for one week with the option of increasing the time.

A proud Bane kneels for her Mistress.

As exciting it feels to dare a full week in almost total isolation (I am able to walk and teleport around freely and can read chat), it is at the same time frightening. There is no way to bail out before the time is over and my possibilities of actively answering to people are limited to gestures like nodding, shaking my head, shrugging etc.

My life as Bane S-4265 began as the helmet closed around me on Monday 3 PM SL-time. And so far I'm getting along pretty well with my banishment. I know it can be hard though, but I'm confident to stand this challenge. It's just one week...

The Great And Seedy Zindra Bike Tour - Part 6

I hope you had a nice Christmas. As you might imagine Drows don't celebrate Christian holidays (Its just inappropriate for a fairy creature for obvious reasons). Nevertheless I have a liking for sweets, good food and nice things to unwrap.

Anyway. After some Christmas-related laziness its time to go on with my (still not bike-)tour.

Whore Street isn't that different from Slut Alley - not really surprising.

I had a pretty interesting conversation with one of the regulars there. According to her its not always and exclusively about sex at these places. Sometimes the visitors just search for somebody to talk with; seeking companionship rather than just copulating pixels. Another aspect - I think - which reflects 1st Life in SL.
But don't get a false idea. Of course these places are very explicit and adult-rated for a reason.

Not far away from the Whore Street lies a peculiar little club with a rather... explosive theme - The H-Bomb Lounge:

Hmm... Lovely concept... Drop da Bomb!

Indoors the nuclear-theme is nicely consequently continued.

I love clubs with a certain edge to their theme. But since I am at Zindra, most places have a totally different (but already familiar) determination:

Yet another variation of a well known theme...

Clear concept: urban decay look, lots of poseballs and rlv traps and lots of people waiting to get hooked up.

Oh and next to the sluts are residing the bimbo's:

The Bimbo Cheerleaders Adult LockerRoom is about... well you can guess.

That creepy... I mean neat looking guy is my old friend Jarem who I found standing around at Slut Street just before. I'm sure he just went there to admire the sports car...

There is also a Infohub in the neighborhood. But since its looking just like the standard Infohub you find everywhere I decided to skip it. Especially since another building in sight tried hard to get our attention:

Hmm... Big Bang Sex Park. Pretty subtle advertisement again. But the walls look suspiciously gorean...

Its not gorean - its just seedy.

Places like this give me a hard time: its just too messy to take a really good picture...

Obviously that place offers a lot - just not organization. Anyway... reaching the end of the road seemed a good way to finish this blogentry too ;-)

This is the end... at least of the southwestern bypass.

Today's leg did lead me from Cloudville to the eastern end of the Southern Bypass.

The Great And Seedy Zindra Bike Tour - Part 5

SL-BDSM-Experts may have recognized the region in my last post. Cloudville is of course home of the House Nishi:

Ok, "house" is an understatement.

The place is more like a city by itself: Several levels with theme-rooms, stores, a garden with maze, a gazebo, a prison, a cafe (not for prisoners)...

Think BIG: The idea for the castle seems to be making the largest possible structure with as less prims as possible.

Choices, choices... perhaps I will have a manicure instead...

They also have a hunt these days (till the end of the year). Nothing with bow and arrow though - a hunt for freebies. You can find more information here.
Personally though I think you get the best freebies already without hunting since there are lots of gifts for group members available at the dungeon.

Pretty good looking and the price is unbeatable.

One of the themed rooms. "Mechanica" is obviously something for the kinky engineers in SL.

I like it more relaxing though. Like in the "Jungle Room".

This theme is called "Darkness". Of course.

Well, House Nishi has a lot to offer & the interior looks pretty nice too. Also to mention on the plus side is that there is usually quite some traffic going on. I'm counting 90 people on the sim as writing this.

Just as I went back on the road again. I spotted a suspicious "Gorean Slave School" sign on my map. Of course I immediately did investigate that place:

Soft pillows and warm colours - yet I still felt a bit uncomfortable.

Perhaps you already know that Gor and me won't ever be friends. In Twilight Forest you usually have nothing but issues with Gor-player. Its a world full of stupid machism and disdain towards women. I had more than once a rather unpleasant encounter with Goreans.

Typical issues are:
  • Excuses like "I wasn't ready" when they got ambushed while wearing a meter in combat mode (be more observant, dude!)
  • RPing the use of hidden weapons while tied up or even unbinding.
  • Total denying of RP (happens usually when shooting a "brave" male Gorean". Some people just can't lose. Especially not to a female). 
  • A general disdain towards the use of RLV - Keep it real! Why pretending to be locked in a cage when - thanks RLV - you actually can be?

All in all Gor is a too uniform, uncreative and predictable world based on a almost fascist ideology with restraining rules which don't leave much space for individualism.

Though the people I've met at the Slave School were really pretty nice. No surprise, they were slave students - who buys (or captures) a disobedient slave?

They are just living in a totally different world and surely want just the kind of dominants they find in Gor...

Obviously Christmas-fashion somehow found its way to Gor too.

After leaving that place. I stumbled over another - pretty odd - sign right next to it. "Bavaria Sex". I could definitely think of a more descriptive name for a store selling RLV traps.

Surprising but efficient way of hiring a secretary: Force sit and strip if you step too close.

I don't know if humans can really imagine how teasing a prohibition sign is for a Drow...

No map with my progress today since I didn't really came far. I'm basically still standing in front of House Nishi where I ended my last post. Next place to discover is "Whore Street" - I guess the name gives a vague idea already what its about:

More of this in the next post... ;-)

The Great And Seedy Zindra Bike Tour - Part 4

So far it seems my journey turns out to be a "bike tour without bike". Well, I don't mind it too much since peaceful walking on a nice and tidy road is less stressful than riding cross country and crashing against banlines all the time instead. So I am just happy with what I have since the sights I discovered so far are really making it worth to explore. Lets see what I found this time...

Yet another dark ruined asylum @ Beauvauis.

No much surprises inside: It meets the standard for creepyness and insanity.

And its pretty cozy too!

My next stop did lead me a little north, away from the road where I spotted some activity on the map. Well, I found indeed "activities".

A typical example of subtlety in advertisement ;-) But it worked: I took a Landmark.

Pretty explicit place...

But I admit: for a place simply offering sex-rp its quite sophisticated.

From the (slut) alley back to the open road. Btw: its called "Southwestern Bypass" but has no cardiological significance.

Baaah! So much road and so less rezz zones.

Todays leg did lead me straight from Beauvais to the sim Aulen, just south of Cloudwille (this name might ring a bell for some. If not, check my next blogentry).

The Great And Seedy Zindra Bike Tour - Part 3

From the kinky art gallery in my last post it wasn't far to another place, which did rise the bar for kinkiness quite a bit:

Xegul: Now thats somehow peculiar looking. Lets see what's there...

After a few meters I found a hole in the rock walls to slip trough (what I find quite fitting for being a drow). I didn't had real expectations to the place so I was pretty surprised to find its much larger than the first impression did betray...

Some kind of rlv-enabled nude beach...

...and it has traps, as I found out stepping into a beachside cave. Rlv-traps of course. The screen turned black and suddenly I found myself...

... stripped in some kind of underground dungeon.

On looking for my way out I explored a strange subterrean forest with giant mushrooms, ruins and, well...

...some kind of alien seed vessel. Don't get too close it might try to fertilize you.

The forest. Don't try to find me there. Drows are just too adapted to sneak unseen through underground habitats.

Eventually I made my way out mostly unscathed. After slipping through another dark cave entrance I found myself at the place's shopping mall:

In general you can say the place covers quite the range. From some artistic shibari-bondage...

Ikea should take this as example: A cute and helpful step by step tutorial.

...to classical BDSM equipment like stocks, cages and bondage racks, to more odd stuff like shemales in all kinds of variations:

At least its not a Drow.

Oh and again: Watch out where you step into...

Of course they strip you, these critters.

What sould I say - its surely not a place for everyone. The preferences of the owner are obviously pretty special, but the place has some pretty good ideas like the rlv forest and the many force-tp possibilities are quite fun (see picture above). Seen from the building point of view I have to add that the quality is somewhat below state-of-the-art though. The Forest with its sculpted plants, the open fields and the rocks look pretty good but other parts look rather crudely made. Less would have been more in this case. I prefer a few more sophisticated buildings instead of a huge rlv-complex with too less details to loom really convincing.

Of course I have to explore this cute flying rock...

I want that too! The self-moving broom of course.

Just a few meters further I found a hunting place. This of course made me curious. Well first... then a bit disillusioned:

That makes me angry: Women = prey, men = hunters.

Where is the challenge? Where is the risk for the hunter if they cant lose? Where is the thrill of the unexpected? Its just picking your slave of the day to play with her. Not much better than gor and certainly not my cup of tea...

I found a new friend! A cute... uhm... spermish looking... devil at Beauvais.

Too bad our friendship didn't lasted too long. It got auto-returned after a few minutes.

Today's journey was again not the longest but a very interesting one. Its just what I hoped as I started exploring Zindra: Lots of kinki interactivity.

The Great And Seedy Zindra Bike Tour - Part 2

Time for part two of my journey through Zindra and this time I could even use my bike! I did continue my ride eastwards Melissa's Cageroom and got quite the distance behind me this time. As expected the island (or continent) has quite some things to see... and try. You don't have to wait long till you run into them. But let's have a look:

Zindran Coastal Parkway @ Wyelde: Where does this mysterious gate will lead to?

Wow - it can hardly be more spectacular! Empty Spaces @ Wyelde. (Yes this caption contains irony. Did you find it?)

Love is in the air! Or at least on the road: Zindran Coastal Parkway @ Orburs.

Parking my bike at The Keyhole Club @ Orburs. The many poseballs indicate its a... "busy workplace".

Santa's coming!

Of course I wasn't sitting there alone long.

*Grrrrrrs on rule #6 and murmurs something about racism*

After this dissatisfying experience the club was done for me and I headed to my bike again.

Fort Grand: A weapons store - it's look doesn't gives me much trust in their quality though. Or are they working too well?

Fort Grant: Heavy Metal Dreams. No, actually its called: "Fuckmachine Laboratories"...

Well... "fuckmachines" isn't the whole truth. The creator seems to have an affinity for milking too. Perhaps he has a sidejob as dairy farmer...

This place is called: "its a museum,with art and nice things made in sl by people"

Obviously it's at Zindra.

Ah well... now its really getting seedy...

Cute birdy!

Today's route did lead me from MCR to this kinky art museum at Fort Grant. Pretty interesting route which makes appetite for more!

Oh and in case you don't really know what Zindra is, its the adult-rated landmass of SL, whilst the other continents are rated general or mature at best. Of course there are countless of adult-rated sims spread all over the gird but the nice density of kinkiness here really invites you to do some exploring.

The Zindra Continent in its full glory. You might recoginize the spot in the southwestern corner where I started my tour. And no, the southeast hasn't crashed - the sims there are simply missing still...
