Never Have I Ever Challenge!

Never Have I Ever Challenge! (click here for a raw shot)

I am attempting to bring my Monday Memes back, because I miss doing them so much. However, I am not sure I’ll be able to do them continuously every Monday. So I’ll keep it easy and just do them when I can.

For this week’s Monday Meme, I am going to play the Never Have I Ever game, where I will post a series of statements about your Second Life and you have to answer by admitting if you have or have never done that thing. Most of the time the statements are supposed to be about things people don’t necessarily want to admit to, however, I do want to point out that I don’t think there is anything wrong with any of these things and I am totally not judging you if you DO do any of these things and enjoy doing them in your Second or even first life. To each their own! Besides, who am I to judge, I like to take porny pictures with my ALT, right?

I did do a judgmental picture for today’s post though because I thought it would be fun. Don’t I look like a stuck up princess ready to judge everyone? I love it!

Meme instructions: Copy and paste the following statements and answers to your post, delete my answers and input your own. Don’t forget to leave a link to your post in the comments so others can come by and read your answers as well!

  1. Never have I ever had sex, in Second Life. – I have. I guess I can’t weasel out of this one.
  2. Never have I ever visited a sex sim, in Second Life. – I have. I went to Bukkake Bliss when it was still around back in 2008. I don’t know what the latest sex sims are that the kids these days are hanging out at.
  3. Never have I ever been an escort or stripper, in Second Life. – I have never. I was a belly dancer though but didn’t strip.
  4. Never have I ever been in porn videos in Second Life. – I have never. (that I know of)
  5. Never have I ever done things that may be illegal in the real world, in Second Life. – I have. Drugs are illegal but hopefully I won’t get arrested for admitting that.
  6. Never have I ever created an ALT for secret activities, in Second Life. – I have. Unfortunately the activities were not as scandalous as you may be thinking.
  7. Never have I ever had a one night stand, in Second Life. – I have. Long time ago.
  8. Never have I ever been part of a roleplay community, in Second Life. – I have never, which is surprising but I am not very good at roleplay.
  9. Never have I ever discovered a new fetish, because of Second Life. – I have never. (I think)
  10. Never have I ever done things in Second Life that I wouldn’t admit to my friends or family. – I have. Pretty much my whole Second Life.

I do want to give a big thanks to my plurk friends for helping me out with some of these things. I thought of the idea but then I drew a blank on what I could use. I wanted to make it fun and interesting, not sure I accomplished that, but I think it’s a good exercise to be open about our desires and activities in SL, (sometimes.) If you feel like any of the statements are too intrusive, feel free to skip them but I do hope you give it a chance!

Please remember that you can participate in any of the memes/challenges at any time. You’ll find them all under my Blog Challenges category along with other memes and challenges I’ve done over the years. If you do an image to accompany this post, please feel free to do add it to the Blog Memes Flickr Group. You don’t have to have a blog to do this challenge, you can share your words in the comments or on any social platform.

Skybox Hermit

(click here for a raw shot) Are you a skybox hermit? I can be at times, but I also like exploring the grid. I like scouting locations for shoots or just exploring the creativity of Second Life content creators. However, I can also be quite anti-social and just want to keep to myself, dress up […] Continue reading →

Dum Maaro Dum

Dum maaro dum literally translates into ‘take another hit’ and it was the name of a very famous bollywood song in the 1970s, then reworked in 2011.

Avatar in a Box Challenge

The lovely Vanessa Blaylock has started a new challenge called Avatar in a Box! She was inspired by Hugh Kretschmer‘s 2006 art/fashion piece Special Delivery where he lovingly assembled outfits and body parts in a box, which you can see in her post. I didn’t really want to cut up my avatar in pieces like […] Continue reading →

Mrs. Robinson

Botgirl called me Mrs. Robinson earlier today and that sort of inspired this post, even though I am completely innocent and have even sworn off men for the rest of my life (or until I meet a really hot guy). But yeah, I did have fun dressing Manberry up like a schoolboy and photoshopping a […] Continue reading →
