Back in December of 2019… that long ago? …I wrote a review of available women’s genitals. See Second Life Vaginas: The V. That is the vagina for the Maitreya body. Now there is a version for Slink Original and Hourglass and Inithium Kupra (with a 50% off Kupra version until Feb 14, 2021 – see details at the in-world store. – MAP URL). The marketplace URL is here (URL – NSFW).
I got the Slink Hourglass demo. It comes with Slink Classic and Redux versions. Both in the same package. If you don’t know Slink, the Redux version is the version highly optimized for BOM. Slink Classic is their older more complex applier style body. Whichever you prefer, they have something for you.
The Original and Hourglass versions of The V are different and NOT interchangeable. So, for Slink users that frequently swap between Slink bodies like I do, they will need to make a decision. Hourglass or Original or buy both? They don’t have a package deal for buying the two.
This is the first vagina I have seen advertised as BoM ready. I think that is sort of misleading in this case. The HUD suggests that reality too. The Labia Majora is excluded as it should be colored by BOM. At first, I couldn’t get that to work with the demo. I thought I was probably missing something as these are sold as different skin tones and promoted as BOM… (WTH?) How is that?
This vagina is interesting enough I contacted the designer and provided my first draft of the review. I got feedback and now think I understand why this model is as it is.
BOM is going to add a complication for those designing vaginas. The UV Map in the crotch of the Classic avatar and most mesh avatars leaves a lot to be desired. Especially when a woman spreads her legs. Angi Manners (anj4) the designer of Session products decided to solve that problem by not using third-party skin on the vagina. No BoM. Doing so makes for just too few pixels in the area. Instead, she chose to use a custom Hi-Rez 1024×1024 texture and materials with a custom UV Map. Otherwise, this part of the avatar would be very low-rez… basically fuzzy and not in a good way. Continue reading →
Unpack the demo and add the Pro Bento VaJayJay v2.3 – DEMO and one of the two HUDs, main and mini.
I thought, for a time, this was the ultimate in vaginas… as far as Bento and rigged mesh go. Also, it is probably the most realistic. But, not necessarily the best choice or most practical nor anatomically correct… position-wise.
What is realistic are the lips and the internal vagina. The lips are as we expect with the inner labia slightly extending past the outer labia. The vagina is a cave-like model being a bit of a tube inside the avatar. Unfortunately for the guys, it is an RL proportionately sized vagina. I mean those elephant-trunk-sized penises are NOT going to fit. Continue reading →
I could be crude and get into a debate about which promiscuous woman… Sorry guys, but that’s not where I am going. This is very much a Second Life™ thing as it is an ‘equipment’ review. Where else would people discuss their options in vaginas? As in what theirs is going to be… and what it can do…
Nal Teasing the Boys…
While once upon a time Xcite! Was the top of the line, no longer. The Xcite! X4 female vagina was last updated sometime in 2016. Sometime later a poster saying ‘X5 Coming Soon” appeared in the Xcite! Sales region. So, while I still occasionally use my Xcite! X4 parts and visit the Xcite! shop but not often. Mostly because of the massive script load. More about Xcite! later.
So, who is the best ‘virtual’ plastic surgeon building genitals these days? Is there anything new down there? I’ll provide some answers. But let’s frame some things. We have had Bento for a time and we are seeing it used in some of the new vaginas. Not particularly well IMO. Continue reading →
The BoM applier for GA.EG heads is out. It is said to work on Bento and non-Bento GA.EG heads. But, ONLY GA.EG heads.
You can get it for free at the main store. You pay L$1 and get L$1 back, so is free.
GA.EG BoM Applier – Sept 2019 Release – Free
The applier comes with instructions. Use is easy and simple. Figuring out how to do makeup and tats may be a bit strange if you have forgotten how Classic avatars and system layers work. However, you can save a BoM look as a favorite in the head’s HUD… skin section.
You still have to have a BoM capable viewer. More and more third-party viewers are BoM capable. Just not Firestorm. :/ But, soon.
Ever wonder how the SL travel and places blogs find those awesome places?
It seems the Blogger & Vlogger Network has a list of them. (here) They also have a form one can fill out to add to the list. So, they find these places when people stumble-on or otherwise find them and add them to the list.
Only those who dream learn to fly
The list is titled Photogenic, Rezzable Sims. Rezzable? My first thought was griefers will LOVE this list. However, many of the locations require membership in a group to get rez-rights and a number of those groups have a Join Fee. About 20 of the 37 locations are listed as free. If there is a cost it is referenced in the listing. They also have the region’s maturity rating, PG, Moderate, and Adult. Nine are rated Adult, but not all 9 are hook-up places. And even those that are, look good.
The list apparently has some age. Several of the links landed me at places other than the obvious intended landing point but the correct region. However, a couple of regions were gone or repurposed.
I found Backdrop Cove (Map URL) in the list. Got some pictures. This place is not as crowded as Backdrop City. So, posing and setup was nicer. Also, you can rez stuff without having to join a group. They use a 60-minute return. It is a moderate region and the pose and animation stuff I saw was PG. Donations are appreciated. Please help out. Continue reading →
