3. Dom Corner - BDSM Safety with Tarl Field

I know I always talk about safety in BDSM and some may wonder why it's such a warm subject to me. Well without safety you will either hurt your sub, scare them, or worse mark them for life both mentaly and physically.

But there is one thing that safety rests firmly on and that's trust. If you don't have trust you can not trust the one you're giving your life over to. Because that's what you do when you allow someone to take control over you. When you let someone restrain you no matter if its rope or chains or steel shackles or even silk scarf in playful bedroom bondage, you give up your freedom and your ways to escape if you get scared.

I am not writing this to scare you from BDSM. I am writing it to tell you that you should not just pick the first guy that claims to be a Master or the first woman claiming to be a Mistress. So how do I know a true dominant you ask. Well to me it's not easy since I am a dominant myself. Now here is the point I just said I am a dominant. How do you know that?

In my case, ask my friends and you will know. But if I don't know who your friends are you ask? Well that's true you don't know my friends. Then I suggest when you find a person you like and that you think you can trust, start out slow and with backups. In SL you can always reset your shackles or restraints. In RL I recommend a friend that calls you after 1 or 2 hours and that you tell the dominant this. If he or she won't accept that I recommend you not go home with that person.

Now why did I say that about RL? Well I know many in SL want to try BDSM in RL after a while and I do not want them getting hurt in RL. In SL you only risk your emotions and that;s not just so little. Many forget that behind each character there is a human being.

For now I will leave you with this and any questions can be directed to me Tarl Field. Thank you and I hope this helps.

6. Hornet's Auction article

BDSM Life Slave Auctions

Saturdays auction took place infront of another full sim of interested Masters and Mistresses. We had two quality slaves up for auction this week; and whilst bidding was not as frenzied as it has been in previous weeks, there was still interest from several parties who saw the quality of the slaves up for auction.



The winning bidders were very pleased with their purchases and everybody was happy with the eventual outcome.



The popularity of BDSM Life Slave Auctions is steadily growing within the slave community as the place to be auctioned. We already have 4 quality slaves ready for the next auction on Saturday with several more waiting for a vacant spot at forthcoming auctions.

BDSM Life Slave Auction is the place to buy quality slaves and quality prices and I urge all Masters and Mistresses to be there next Saturday for what is sure to be another exciting and rewarding auction.

[12:01] hibit Spad: lol
[12:02] Achron Timeless: so if no one can TP in...
[12:02] Melinda Waffle: you will have to do the class athy :)
[12:02] Athaliah Opus: Welcome, we will wait to see more people trickle in and see if our teacher will be able to get back.
[12:03] Baby Anatra: sir crashed
[12:03] Melinda Waffle: true
[12:03] hibit Spad: I think this sim is pretty close to maxed out
[12:04] Athaliah Opus nods.
[12:04] Achron Timeless: and I just about crashed right then
[12:05] Athaliah Opus smiles and looks around the room. First off. I just want to say Thank you all for believing in OpenCollar. This group started as a small group of friends who wanted to ?
make submission free in SL.
[12:05] Baby Anatra: sir is trying to get back in now
[12:06] Athaliah Opus: We have additional information on the wiki, which is located at http://opencollar.wikidot.com/start There's the basic how to set up the collar with examples quick guide which is useful for those not familer with collars.
[12:07] Baby Anatra: sir can get in the sim is full
[12:08] Athaliah Opus nods and understands. "Thank you baby"
[12:08] Baby Anatra: yw
[12:09] Athaliah Opus: Also, we are starting to get a small staff of "helpslaves" and others that like to help in the OpenCollar Chatter and R&D group. If you have questions, the Chatter group is the first place to go after the wiki.
[12:12] Athaliah Opus taps her foot and waits for the teacher.
[12:12] Athaliah Opus: Looking over the speed of the sim, it might be a bit awkward to show you how the collar works, as it might be a bit difficult for everyone to see what is happening.
[12:12] Baby Anatra: he trying to get back in
[12:13] Ray McKeenan: Will class notes be posted on the wiki later?
[12:13] Melinda Waffle: ok, he is at least online again
[12:13] Athaliah Opus: Yes Ray, all class notes will be on the wiki and in a few locations later.
[12:14] Marissa Mistwallow: Who's the teacher?
[12:14] Melinda Waffle: Tarl Filed
[12:14] Rogue Joubert: will there be a list of locations?
[12:14] Melinda Waffle: He crashed and has problems getting back
[12:14] Athaliah Opus: While we wait, why don't we take a few quiestions.
[12:15] Athaliah Opus: Rogue, which locations?
[12:15] Lynette Steamweaver: IS there a way that a sub with a locked collar can get rid of an owner in the case of an 'emergency'?
[12:15] Rogue Joubert: you said there would be locations for the class notes...where will those locations be
[12:15] Marissa Mistwallow: Lynette: Yes, there's a runaway command.
[12:15] Athaliah Opus: Yes Lynette, you can use the "runaway" command.
[12:16] Marissa Mistwallow: There has been talk of adding an option to disable it, but so far it cannot be disabled.
[12:17] VictoriaRose Amat: Is there a way to remove spy and listener scripts from the collar?
[12:17] Athaliah Opus nods. "And always, you can go to the code list, and put in requests, suggestions and bug reports. That is located at http://code.google.com/p/opencollar/issues/list
[12:17] Marissa Mistwallow: the spy script won't open any listeners if the spy features are turned off, but yes, you can just delete the script
[12:17] Ray McKeenan nods "Good. How does one get the RLV to work? I have it installed as told with the download, but I can't get it to work in here. What am I missing?
[12:17] Achron Timeless: wb Tarl
[12:17] Melinda Waffle: wb Sir
[12:17] Marissa Mistwallow: And if you remove the listener script, the collar won't work at all!
[12:18] Tarl Field: finally made it
[12:18] Ellyssia Sexton: wb Sir
[12:18] Tarl Field: sorry for the delay
[12:18] Baby Anatra: WEEEE
[12:18] Lynette Steamweaver "welcome back Techer person"
[12:18] Baby Anatra: WB sIR
[12:18] VictoriaRose Amat: and the collar will work without those two scipts?
[12:18] Tarl Field: Shall i take that question athy
[12:18] BelleVie Moonites: Nice to see you, Sir.
[12:18] Tarl Field: about the rlv
[12:19] Athaliah Opus: In case of anyone likes to know, Merissa is usally found at the OpenCollar HQ and is one of the scriptors that works on OpenCollar and is a great one to quiz on the more scripting type of questions.
[12:19] Marissa Mistwallow: Well I wouldn't say I'm *usually* at hq...
[12:19] Athaliah Opus: Welcome back Tarl. We were just taking a few questions while waiting. Feel free to start when the current questions are cleared up.
[12:19] Tarl Field: Rlv installition
[12:19] Tarl Field: ONlöy copy and and paste restrainedlife.exe
[12:20] Tarl Field: not the xml file
[12:20] Athaliah Opus giggles and hands the class to Tarl Sir.
[12:20] Ray McKeenan: I did everything the readme said to do.
[12:20] Tarl Field: that should work and remember the rlv is not avalible for the releasecandidate
[12:20] Melinda Waffle: it is
[12:20] Melinda Waffle smiles
[12:20] Tarl Field: thats the point read me tell you to copy all
[12:20] Melinda Waffle: sorry to interrupt
[12:20] Tarl Field: Only copy the restrainedlife
[12:21] Tarl Field: Thanks athy
[12:21] Ray McKeenan: Oh, well I did that already
[12:21] Achron Timeless: ok, what if we went ahead and copied the xml file, will there be any problems?
[12:21] Tarl Field: as i found out the xml is not needed
[12:21] Melinda Waffle: and of course you should start restraindlife.exe instead of secondlife.exe
[12:23] Lynette Steamweaver: hehe thank you
[12:23] Tarl Field: i hope i am still here
[12:23] Trinity Vanmoer: you're welcome ;)
[12:23] Tarl Field: sl is being veru laggy
[12:24] Melinda Waffle: ray has gone...
[12:24] Tarl Field: Okay lets start with the simple things how you start after wearing the collar
[12:24] Melinda Waffle: maybe starting the right exe now
[12:24] Melinda Waffle smiles
[12:25] Lynette Steamweaver: can the collar be put on any attachment point?
[12:25] Tarl Field: if you choose so yes
[12:25] Marissa Mistwallow: yes. As long as you can make it look good there ;)
[12:26] Marissa Mistwallow: but if it's below your head, you have to be careful with float text showing up inside your body.
[12:26] IM: Marissa Mistwallow: that sounds like a fantastic idea!
[12:26] Athaliah Opus giggles. "If it was possible to make it with OpenCollar scripts, it was made. From belts to naughty bits to piercings.
[12:26] Melinda Waffle: Teacher crashed again
[12:27] Baby Anatra: ON NO
[12:27] Athaliah Opus: Oh no.
[12:27] Thomas Aker: he will brb
[12:27] xam Ock: (( Sim is full ))
[12:27] Melinda Waffle: Btw... i am wearing an Open collar earring... so no problem
[12:27] Achron Timeless: so in theory I could stick the scripts in damn near anything and it'll work?
[12:27] Athaliah Opus: I even have a ring to wear with the scripts.
[12:28] Dylana Wetherby: where can we get open collar piercings?
[12:28] Lynette Steamweaver: prim hair with open collar scripts : D
[12:28] Marissa Mistwallow: I had opencollar scripts in my hair for a while, just to try it
[12:28] Achron Timeless: now there's an idea, I'm running out of attachment points
[12:28] Marissa Mistwallow: I got tired of having the opencollar menu come up every time I tried to use mouselook.
[12:29] Athaliah Opus: We had a few designers release them in the OpenCollar group. But from now on, anyone can release things to the OpenCollar chatter group for other group members.
[12:30] Athaliah Opus: Let me look and see who was the designer that did that for you later.
[12:30] Athaliah Opus: Catch me in IM after the class for that.
[12:30] Dylana Wetherby: ta, I will!
[12:30] nathen Ghost: hi all
[12:31] nathen Ghost: greetings miss Dylana
[12:31] Thomas Aker: greatings Nathen have a seat
[12:31] Athaliah Opus: Ok. so RLV features are a fun part of the collar, but its not a required requirement for it. It just adds additional features to it.
[12:31] Dylana Wetherby: greetings, Nathen.
[12:31] Athaliah Opus: Have a seat Nathen, it will take a few to rez.
[12:31] Lynette Steamweaver: RLV is fun^^
[12:32] Athaliah Opus: Yes, RLV is great fun. For those that don't know, its the Restrained life viewer.
[12:33] xam Ock: Why the open collar menu becomes ineffective after 30 sec?
[12:33] Athaliah Opus: It adds additional features to your SL, like making things fun like not being able to unlock things and being locked into postions or kept in one location. There's a ?
ton of features added to the collar, and you can find them out by exploring the RLV button on the collar. If your not in RLV ,that button will not let you turn it on.
[12:34] Marissa Mistwallow: xam: Because the script stops the listener to save resources.
[12:34] Marissa Mistwallow: There's an item on the bug tracker about increasing that limit, so feel free to weigh in.
[12:34] Athaliah Opus: That is a current suggestion request. If you feel you want it longer, feel free to add to the code list why you think it needed to be made longer.
[12:35] Athaliah Opus: Honestly, a lot of the suggestions that are requested are good ones and are usually added in the next release, depending on the complexity of adding it. But as the ?
collar is getting more feature fillled, it will come to a point where something might be better added by your own scripts or we can make a sub project.
[12:36] Athaliah Opus: Just like the Cuffs, that is a good subproject that is currently being worked on, it will use the same color setting and textures as the collar.
[12:36] Marissa Mistwallow: well in this case it's just a matter of adjusting a constant.
[12:36] Achron Timeless: cuffs?
[12:36] Rogue Joubert: will updates be sent to us or we have to go to pick up the new updates?
[12:37] Athaliah Opus: Currently they are in the alpha stage, but look for cuffs that have a bit more features in the future.
[12:37] Marissa Mistwallow whispers: Rogue: Updates are sent to you.
[12:37] Athaliah Opus: Updates are sent two ways depending on how the collar designer made it. In place, where its sent to you when you put it on.
[12:37] Rogue Joubert: Thank you Marissa
[12:37] Marissa Mistwallow: In the form of an updating sphere. You rez your collar and then the sphere updates the scripts.
[12:37] Ray McKeenan sits in another chair after coming back from a crash.
[12:37] Athaliah Opus: And the other where an updater is sent out.
[12:37] One Ferraris: hello My Queen Lu Stand and me have only one prob , to use the RLV folder for clothes , dont work , what we do wrong
[12:37] One's translator: hello My Queen Lu Stand and me have only one sample, to use the RLV folder for clothes, dont work, what we do wrong
[12:38] Marissa Mistwallow: okay, Athaliah is right. But the official collar does use the updater method.
[12:38] Marissa Mistwallow: some send an entire replacement collar.
[12:38] mir Homewood: I have the clothes option working on my rlv if you want to im me i can explain how i did it One:)
[12:39] Rogue Joubert: so in the future you will be having cuffs?
[12:39] Athaliah Opus: The maker of the RLV, marine. (She is a goddess for making it available to everyone) She has a blog in which she tells how to set up the #RLV folder.
[12:40] Athaliah Opus: http://realrestraint.blogspot.com/2008/08/objects-sharing-tutorial.html might help you with troubleshooting the RLV folder. If not we can try and help you to troubleshoot it later.
[12:40] Athaliah Opus: Yes Rogue, they are in alpha right now. They have been released in the past as simple cuffs with little scripting.
[12:40] Rogue Joubert: Thank you
[12:41] Achron Timeless: will these cuffs be compatible with any existing cuff system? lockmeister, lockguard..
[12:41] Athaliah Opus smiles. "Thanks mir for helping."
[12:41] Athaliah Opus: yes, they already work with the lockmeister and lockguard, that is what the previous ones were able to do.
[12:42] xam Ock: Hope they will add !xcite too
[12:42] Lynette Steamweaver: oooh me too
[12:43] Athaliah Opus: Thats something that would be up to !xcite as they do not allow their scripts to be given away in free objects per their licencse.
[12:43] Lynette Steamweaver: damn
[12:44] xam Ock: !xcite chain anywhere is free as far as I know
[12:44] Athaliah Opus: It would be a conflict of the OpenSource licence to include it as they use closed information in their scripts. Its clearly set out in their partner information.
[12:44] Marissa Mistwallow: By the way, OpenCollar currently supports LockMeister but not LockGuard.
[12:44] Lynette Steamweaver: Aprille Shepherd: There are 81,200 on SL...a new Record as far as I know.
Don't think I have seen that in 3 years.
It's a good thing...but may also cause issues with bandwidth and use.
[12:44] Athaliah Opus: Thanks for correcting me Marissa, I don't know everything.
[12:45] Ray McKeenan: Thats to bad
[12:45] Marissa Mistwallow: There's an issue on the tracker for LockGuard support. It will probably show up soon, don't worry.
[12:45] Marissa Mistwallow: http://code.google.com/p/opencollar/issues/detail?id=182
[12:45] Athaliah Opus smiles. ;) I do know a lot, but the best thing is that I know who to send you to for what type of questions and help troubleshoot things.
[12:47] Athaliah Opus: Ok, is there features that people are curious about first? I was planning on showing off the badwords feature but I am curious if there was another was was wanted.
[12:49] Athaliah Opus: The badwords feature is where you set a word with simple matching. I have mine set up so that everytime I say one word, I get placed into an animation. Mine is underground, which hides me from view. And if you ever make a mistake and your trying your hardest to type out a penance phrase, it might take a few times to get it right. With a creative owner, you can have the collar wearer wagging their rear like a dog, or the default of being shocked and throwing a tantrum.
[12:50] Athaliah Opus: Its all up to the owner to set what they would like done. I know one person that set up the penance phrase as "My Master is God of the world and humblily beg at His feet for forgiveness" to one that had it set at "Uncle".
[12:50] Rogue Joubert: ah...btw that position underground.....how do you undo it.....I had my pet underground and didnt know how to undo it?
[12:51] Marissa Mistwallow: use the command "release"
[12:51] Marissa Mistwallow: it ends animations.
[12:51] Athaliah Opus: Ahh, Rogue, the collar wearer would need to type out the penance phrase. Its set by default to "Pet is very sorry for her mistake".
[12:51] Rogue Joubert: ok thank you
[12:51] Athaliah Opus: Also release does kill the animation.
[12:52] Rogue Joubert: yea I know I can do that but dont you have to click on the collar first? I couldnt get to the collar cause they were underground
[12:52] Marissa Mistwallow: just type "xxrelease", where xx is the sub's initials.
[12:52] Marissa Mistwallow: so for me, it would be "mmrelease".
[12:52] Rogue Joubert: ok thank you
[12:52] Achron Timeless: initials and menu, like atmenu for me will bring up the menu as well
[12:52] Athaliah Opus: Also, there is a few ways to get the collar menu up. Just type the prefix and the comman menu
[12:53] Athaliah Opus: er command "menu"
[12:53] Marissa Mistwallow: And the guide you can get from the opencollar has a nearly complete list of commands, if you like reading.
[12:53] Rogue Joubert: so then when you want to do any command you can use the initals in chat right?
[12:53] Athaliah Opus: A third way is to use an owner's hud. which you can get in the group notices.
[12:53] Lynette Steamweaver: lasmenu
[12:53] Athaliah Opus: Correct.
[12:53] Lynette Steamweaver: lsmenu
[12:53] Rogue Joubert: thank you
[12:54] Athaliah Opus: Another useful thing if you don't want people to see that your typing "aomenu" all the time, is channels. The defult is 1, but you can set the collar to use another. So you can type "/9aomenu" and that would send the command to the 9 channel and have the menu not show in open chat.
[12:55] Athaliah Opus: But to do that, you need to tell the collar first to listen to that channel by using the channel command.
[12:55] Athaliah Opus: Does that make sense?
[12:56] Athaliah Opus: Some fun things, the hug, subhug and kiss commands. The owner can command the collar wearer to hug/subhug/kiss another at their whim.
[12:57] Athaliah Opus: So If I was on Baby's collar as an owner, I could command her to hug Marissa by typing the command "bahug mar"
[12:58] Athaliah Opus: Just need a few letters of the name for it to ask the person. Don't worry it will tell you if it can't tell who to to hug.
[12:58] Melinda Waffle: want to show athy?
[12:58] Athaliah Opus: It will then ask the person to be hugged if they want to be hugged, with a "yes or "no".
[12:58] Athaliah Opus: Sure.
[12:59] Melinda Waffle: moment
[12:59] Athaliah Opus: I'm sure that Tarl had a lot of things to show off like this using you two. ;)
[12:59] Melinda Waffle: lol
[12:59] Athaliah Opus: mwhug mar
[12:59] Melinda Waffle: ok athy...you are secowner now
[13:00] Earring Large Silver Hoop - left ear: Marissa Mistwallow did not accept your hug.
[13:00] Melinda gives Marissa a big hug.
[13:00] Melinda Waffle: mmmmmmm
[13:00] mir Homewood: whenever i try to hug it says the person can not be found, i am typing the whole name is that wrong?
[13:00] Melinda Waffle: and no way to avoid it
[13:00] Marissa Mistwallow giggles, because she is hugging a mist ball
[13:00] Marissa Mistwallow: Ah, thank you. Now I can see you.
[13:00] Melinda Waffle: yw
[13:01] Melinda Waffle: and thx for the hug
[13:01] Melinda Waffle smiles
[13:01] Athaliah Opus: mir, we can troubleshoot why its not working with you afterwards if you'd like. But it could be that the collar just does not see the person nearby.
[13:01] mir Homewood: thank you
[13:01] Marissa Mistwallow smiles
[13:01] Lynette Steamweaver: does the person to be hugged have to be in a range of say 20M or 10M?
[13:01] Athaliah Opus: Also, you can add extra poses to the collars. Just drop in the pose and use it like a command.
[13:02] Lynette Steamweaver: how do you add the posses and the commands?
[13:02] Athaliah Opus: The poses you just dropthe collar on the group and drag and drop them inside the collar.
[13:02] Rogue Joubert: just drop the poses into the collar in the content tab?
[13:03] Marissa Mistwallow: yes, that's it.
[13:03] Baby Anatra: i will see you all taters have to get going
[13:03] Rogue Joubert: and then to use them you use their initials and the name of the pose?
[13:03] Athaliah Opus: yes. Then the command is the name of the pose. So if you drop the pose "bunnyhop" just type the prefix and the command. So for me it would be "aobunnyhop"
[13:03] Melinda Waffle: cu sissy
[13:03] Lynette Steamweaver: ooooh cool
[13:03] Athaliah Opus: Bye baby, say hi to Tarl when he gets back for me.
[13:04] Baby Anatra: i sure will
[13:04] Rogue Joubert: LOL Athaliah you and I are on the same wave length ;)
[13:04] Thomas Aker: be well Baby
[13:04] Athaliah Opus: The last thing that I want to talk about is the sub AO. Its a Zhao2 Animation override which has been modified to work with the collar. So if the owner tells the collar wearer to kneel, you kneel.
[13:05] Athaliah Opus: With some of the AOs, you have to run to click them off when a command is given. This makes it so you can have them work together. And you can use them with all of the colllars, so you can wear a glow collar one day and the steel collar the next and not have to change things.
[13:06] Athaliah Opus: We also have a pony and crawl notecards set up in it as well for when needed. ;).
[13:07] Melinda Waffle: but this one i wont show right now
[13:07] Melinda Waffle smiles
[13:07] Athaliah Opus: If your familer with editing AOs, its is the same to add your own custom stands and animations. I don't recommend it for those that don't have some experiance with setting up AOs unless they are patiant.
[13:07] mir Homewood: where do we get the Zhao2 animation override and does it work for male subs
[13:08] Athaliah Opus: Its at the HQ and in the multivendors around the grid. The picture looks like two white dots, and its a HUD to put on your screen, just like every other AO out there.
[13:08] Athaliah Opus: Yes, there is even a male notecard with some simple male anims in it.
[13:08] mir Homewood: thank you
[13:08] Athaliah Opus: So your male subs won't look too feminine. ;)
[13:09] Achron Timeless: unless desired of course ^.^
[13:09] mir Homewood: i know i hate swaying too much when i walk
[13:09] Athaliah Opus: of course!
[13:09] Athaliah Opus: Ok, what other areas did I miss? (waits for questions)
[13:09] Athaliah Opus: mwcutie
[13:09] Melinda Waffle: lol
[13:09] Athaliah Opus: Sorry, had to show off my favorite pose. ;)
[13:10] Melinda Waffle: maybe owner system?
[13:10] Rogue Joubert: yea but that may not be a bad thing LOL
[13:10] Athaliah Opus: Do you mean the Owner Hud melinda?
[13:10] Ray McKeenan: I would like to hear about the owner hud.
[13:10] Melinda Waffle: no... owners and secowners
[13:10] Melinda Waffle: or did i miss something
[13:10] Melinda Waffle: mwrelease
[13:10] Melinda Waffle: as i am still the owner i can release myself
[13:11] Melinda Waffle smiles
[13:11] Athaliah Opus points out to you htat melinda is wearing an AO.. as she stood back up, or released herself.
[13:12] VictoriaRose Amat: can you make yourself a second owner while you still own the collar
[13:12] Athaliah Opus: In OpenCollar you can only have one owner. multiple second owners.. Or you can have a group set with secowner permissions. Personally I have my collar set up with me as the owner and others with second owner, but that is because I am weird and have to troubleshoot things.
[13:12] Athaliah Opus: Yes, you can set yourself secondowner when you first get it, while you have owner permissions and then set the owner to another.
[13:13] VictoriaRose Amat: great thank you
[13:13] Athaliah Opus: But the new owner, can always go and remove the sec owners, very easy to do.
[13:13] VictoriaRose Amat: ok understood
[13:13] Classroomchair5prims whispers: Hi Dylana Wetherby! Touch me for Menu. Say /1a to Adjust.
[13:13] Melinda Waffle: i usually let my subs to be secowner
[13:13] Melinda Waffle: so they can use the poses
[13:13] Athaliah Opus: And onto that, we have a new feature with the 3.101 release called OpenAccess. Where anyone in the room can have limited funtions on the collar as long as its set open by the owner..
[13:14] VictoriaRose Amat: generous of you
[13:14] Melinda Waffle smiles
[13:14] Melinda Waffle: but owner always tops secowner
[13:14] Marissa Mistwallow: but then they can also turn off rlv restrictions!
[13:15] Athaliah Opus: I have mine set up for that a lot at HQ.. I have found out that there is a large amout of owners that like to use wildcards to leash... I find this out by them getting ?
an extra, Me!
[13:15] Melinda Waffle: really... never mentioned
[13:15] Melinda Waffle: lol... happens
[13:15] Athaliah Opus: Marissa, it depends on if they are set as Owner or second owner if they can turn off RLV funtions.
[13:15] Melinda Waffle: i thougt so also
[13:15] Marissa Mistwallow: By the way, the command for that is "*grab"
[13:15] Melinda Waffle: only owners are able
[13:15] Melinda Waffle: secowners not
[13:15] Melinda Waffle: but not sure about
[13:16] Melinda Waffle: maybe try it out athy
[13:16] Melinda Waffle: *grab
[13:16] Melinda Waffle: noone with opened collar in here
[13:16] Melinda Waffle smiles
[13:16] OpenCollar - 3.101: Open access set.
[13:17] Athaliah Opus: Try again. OpenAccess only with me as my owner on the collar
[13:17] Melinda Waffle: *grab
[13:17] Melinda Waffle: *unleash
[13:17] Marissa Mistwallow: I just set openaccess, so it should work now
[13:18] Melinda Waffle: *grab
[13:18] Rogue Joubert: so that is openaccess where anyone can grab and unleash
[13:18] Athaliah Opus: yes, and if they have RLV on.. a lot more.
[13:18] Rogue Joubert: ok
[13:18] Melinda Waffle smiles
[13:18] Melinda Waffle: seems not to work marissa
[13:18] Rogue Joubert: and they dont have to be listed as seond owners
[13:19] Melinda Waffle: aounleash
[13:19] Athaliah Opus: Correct Rogue.
[13:19] Athaliah Opus: Ok, any more questions?
[13:19] Ellyssia Sexton: i got a question about rlv if i am out in public can anyone undress me if they are capable?
[13:20] Marissa Mistwallow: mmmenu
[13:20] Marissa Mistwallow: I don't think my collar is even working!
[13:20] Athaliah Opus: Yes they can, if you have them set in your collar, or if you have OpenAccess set. They cannot touch your collar if not.
[13:20] Marissa Mistwallow: oh, it is, it's just being very laggy
[13:20] Melinda Waffle: or if wearing an auto accept relais
[13:20] Athaliah Opus nods to marissa, as it might not be because of the lag.
[13:20] Ray McKeenan: I crashed just when the teacher was talking about the RLV and installing it right. What did I miss?
[13:21] Ellyssia Sexton: ok so only my Master can than
[13:21] Athaliah Opus: Hi Ray. We will post this on the wiki for later.
[13:21] Dylana Wetherby: me, too!
[13:21] Dylana Wetherby: yay!
[13:21] Ray McKeenan: Ok, good. Thank you.
[13:22] Athaliah Opus: And next time I think we are going to have to figure out a way to have it at several locations at once, or just make it all by notecards because of the intrest.
[13:22] Ray McKeenan: I nearly lagged out trying to get in here.
[13:22] Athaliah Opus: But I do believe that I will be having a Owner Hud class soon, as it is something that a lot of people are intrested in because of the force TP feature that is possible ?
with RLV.
[13:23] Melinda Waffle: its great
[13:23] Melinda Waffle smiles
[13:24] Athaliah Opus: Sorry about that. Underestimated the response as I didn't want to send too many notices about it to the group. Obviously a lot of people wanted to know more.
[13:25] Athaliah Opus: So, no more questions except for the ones after the classs. If you do have more questions, check the wiki first, then the Chatter group for questions. And if not. come ?
to the HQs and look for someone with the tags over their heads to help. And if that fails. I can help by IMs.
[13:25] Melinda Waffle: so will i... as far as i can
[13:25] mir Homewood: thanks so much for the invaluable information today!
[13:25] Athaliah Opus smiles.
[13:26] Lillith Surtees: ty very much athalia and all the other helpfull misses :)
[13:26] Rogue Joubert: yes thank you'
[13:26] Thomas Aker: ty Melinda
[13:26] Melinda Waffle: yw
[13:26] Athaliah Opus: I'm sure that Tarl had a lovely class planned out, but due to SL issues, things happens. Glad that I was here as well for backup, and that we didn't have to cancel.
[13:26] Mandy Karu: Yes thank you so much
[13:27] Athaliah Opus laughs as she finds herself in someones lap. "Time to turn off OpenAccess, I think.. "
[13:27] Melinda Waffle: seems now it gets funny
[13:27] Athaliah Opus: aorelease
[13:27] Ray McKeenan: Yea, I'm glad for that,
[13:27] Trinity Vanmoer: :)
[13:27] Athaliah Opus: aounleash
[13:27] Trinity Vanmoer: ahh - the power of scripting :)
[13:27] Dylana Wetherby: ty so very much!
[13:27] Athaliah Opus laughs. "habit there. ;_)
[13:28] Athaliah Opus is going to go afk for 2 minutes to grab the text of the log.
[13:29] Lillith Surtees: bye @ all, have a nice week :)
[13:29] Athaliah Opus: Class is over. I've always wanted to say that!


Also, there is one piece of information. I forgot to mention that the collar wearer is always able to stop any anims or restictions at any time by using the safeword command. Its set to the word "safeword" by default, and does inform the owner when used.

3. Highlighted Store - Witchmaster


Witchmaster

If you are looking for sexy body stockings for a reasonable price, Tarl Field's Witchmaster line is a must-have. I am not a clothing designer, but I do review SL silks, and Tarl's attention to detail has impressed me ever since I first tried on a couple of his creations. The seamlines are aligned perfectly, a task I know can be quite challenging when working with semi-transparent materials. The embroidered designs are a delight to behold!


Witchmaster stockings currently come in three colors, black, grey and pink, my favorite. Tarl has plans for at least two more fabulous colors: red and purple. Two basic designs of each are available, with or without cleavage. In addition, these sexy stockings are available with or without embroidery. The sheer versions are simply breath taking! Add a little spice with a cute heart print, paw print, or oriental looking dragons.



Tarl's beautiful creations can be purchased at his store in BDSM-Life for only $100L each. Or if you cannot make up your mind, pick up an entire set of 12 in any color for only $900L.

Every day, February 21-27, Tarl will be available at his store in BDSM-Life from 12PM-1PM SL time, to meet with customers. He is offering a special sale during that week: buy two and get a third of equal or lesser value for free! And be sure not to miss a special fashion show at the same tmie on Wednesday, February 25, when his luscious models will be showing off his creations. Tarl is also interested in discussing custom design work.

4. Personal Ads

At BDSM-Life, we have Personal Ads boards where you can put up a personal ad to let people know that you are looking for someone.....and we have 3 sexy girls looking!

Timelord Aeon
I'm looking for experienced and unexperienced slaves/subs. I'm a loyal, strong, protective, kind and caring master for any slave/sub. Make them feel safe. If they are without a home I will help them find place. Also if you have rlv that's fine.

Ruelle Mint
I'm looking for a strong mistress, futa/herm/shemale/female/other! My fav species for a mistress is demons, red skinned demons, gender aside. I don't know what else to put here but that I'm not new to s/m and that I know I don't want a nice loving owner...

Terri Parkin
I am a Mistress, that believes in understanding and correctness without severe punishment. Everybody can take a whip and be mean, the Mistress needs so many other skills, to read situations correct and be fair. Looking for girls to bring to understanding, and help them learn and understand themselves. Hope to hear from you soon

Please go to the personal ads boards at BDSM-Life, and click on the name to get their notecards.

If you are interested, then get in touch!

We have plenty of spaces for people to post up on the boards at BDSM-Life. Even better if your picture is up on the boards, we will put your name and details in the newsletter.

Please either IM or send a notecard to Roni Scarmon to let her know if you have a personal ad at BDSM-Life and she will put your personal ad in the newsletter. Send a picture of your self and we'll add it to the newsletter, too!

What a great way to look for new lovers, new sub/slave, new Mistress/Master!

5. Why not buy a slave for Valentines Day!

Saturday saw the next slave auction at BDSM Life. The turnout was excellent with three slaves up for auction, and the seating area was full with Masters and Mistresses ready to bid. The quality of the slaves on display was not in question, and the bidding was fast and furious as Masters and Mistresses made their attempts to make the winning bid for each of the slaves. The seating area gives everybody an excellent view of proceedings with all being able to see the cross upon which the slave under auction is tied. In addition, a large screen behind the stage shows an image of the slave to further enhance the viewing experience. BDSM Life had slaves on auction for every taste and desire and this was born out with both Masters and Mistresses making the bidding. We also had multi-lingual slaves on offer with one slave being purchased by a French speaker, confirming the cosmopolitan nature of BDSM Life.

All in all, the auction was a great success with all slaves being successfully sold and the winning Masters and Mistresses very happy with their purchases. BDSM Life’s slave auction is growing from strength to strength as more quality slaves apply to be auctioned and Masters and Mistresses start to see the quality we have on offer. The next auction is Saturday 21st February at 3.00pm SLT and I look forward to seeing you all there.

Spread the word; BDSM Life Slave Auctions is the place to be on a Saturday night!

February's Comic
