1. Relay For Life Clothing Fair (by Constanza Amsterdam)



Monday, 22 March at 8:00PM SLT, the clothing fair was closed with a big BAM!

What an awesome week it was with so much to do. The great part of this week was not only that we raised a lot of lindens for Relay For Life but also that so many designers have been working together and helping each other so we could raise even more for the Relay For Life Foundation.

And yes also this fair has been a great marketing tool for Eye-Catcher to put it self on the map.

I am happy to tell that Eye-Catcher raised 16,212L$ in total for Relay For Life. The total raised money by the Relay's Raiders was 4,479,532L$ and the total campaign raised 10,706,849L$ so far this year.

I am so proud of everyone and i want to thank all the customers of Eye-Catcher for their support during the event and before.

Please do note that Relay in itself is not closed. To quote HaroldThe Burrel: “Clothing Fair is just a beginning event for the charitable fund drive that runs through July 19th.”

So you may still find kiosks and vendors around SL where you can donate funds to Relay For Life.

2. Store Highlight - Buy Master a Gift



I met with Lectrici Vlodovic, owner of Buy Master a Gift, early Sunday morning at his kiosk in BDSM life. As he demonstrated some of his eclectic collection of creations, he explained his design philosophy to me.

"well I'm fairly new to sl and enjoy seeing how things work. When I first joined I was not impressed with the lack of mens clothes available....", " Lectrici said, "....at least BDSM themed, unless you were a sub. So in learning and playing around I made a few basic t shirts with a BDSM theme."

After being approached by several people who wanted copies, he thought there might be a business opportunity in quality men's clothing. Not only has Lectrici filled a void in clothing, but his creations are soem of the most reasonably priced clothes out there, at least compared to women's clothing anyway. All of his t-shirts are only $50L each. He has so many other t shirts available it's impossible to show them all here, so just drop by Buy Master a Gift and browse the catalog!

In addition to t-shirts, Lectrici sells these awesome black and mesh shoes. He soon plans to have several other colors available!

Lectrici next branched out into scripted furniture. Here's a picture of one of his erotic room dividers. Several different pictures are available to choose from. He should have a couple of them displayed in front of his kiosk starting Monday morning! He also created this nice side board and lamp, which lights up.

This is his new BDSM bench. Lectrici was kind enough to shoot this picture with me to demonstrate the animation. It uses lockguard cuffs to chain the slave to the bench. For only $100L it's a steal!


      And this is Lectrici's newest creation, a work in progress, his Naughty School Desk. It's equi[ped with several sit animations and the lid flips up to display a set of Teacher's choice whips should some incorrigable student be in need of a little discipline! He is offering it for half price to any BDSM Life member wearing their BDSM-Life title who makes a purchase at his store at his meet and greet session.

So, come meet Lectrici Vlodovic, on Saturday, April 4, 12 PM SLT, at his kiosk in the BDSM Life sim, near the Lecture Room. He will rez some of his awesome creations on the common area outside his shop so you can try them for yourself. And pick up one of his free t-shirts for your Master!

Hope to see you there!

4. Switch Corner (by Cazzy Hax)



What is a switch? The label ‘switch’ means different things to different people, depending on how they live their lifestyles. Some people might be 50% dominant, 50% submissive, others might be 80% dominant, 20% submissive, and other people might be different, but for this article, I am writing from MY perspective, my own thoughts and opinions on what being a switch means to me.

I am a switch, which does not mean that I am undecided in what I want, far from it! I love being a switch, because it allows me to enjoy being on the Top as well as being on the bottom. It allows me to explore many aspects of BDSM in both roles, and it means a big deal to me, it is a role that I am comfortable with in myself. It is a journey, where there is no end, and I will learn new things everyday, both about myself and what kind of activities I like. I am mostly Domme, occasionally like to be on the bottom. I love being on the bottom, but most of the time, I do like to be on the Top, to be one in the control. I like to be flexible and if I am on the bottom occasionally it means that I will know what it will be like in the sub’s shoes as such and it will help me be a better Domme, I believe in that.

I love being tied up and is a bit of a pain-slut, and if I was a Domme all the time, I would miss that, and it will make me miserable, therefore will lead to that I will become a bad Domme, that will lead to my submissives being not happy in the relationship at all. Being a switch makes me feel comfortable with myself and makes me happy.

So that’s what being a switch means to me!

Thank you for reading!

Please submit your experiences as Domme, sub, or switch, for publication in future newsletters. Just send a NC to Roni Scarmon or Cazzy Hax for consideration.

5. BDSM Slave Auction (by Hornet Lefevre)



BDSM Life is without doubt becoming the place to obtain the very best slaves at the very best prices. As the auction grows in popularity with both Slaves and Masters and Mistresses, it is becoming the place to be at 3.00pm SLT every Saturday.

I look forward to seeing you there next week for what promises to be another exciting and rewarding auction.

6. Grease Party



What with the change of date to Fridays at noon SLT, I've missed most of the recent parties at the Hard Restraint Cafe. Mother nature dumped a blizzard on the Rocky Mountain front range last Thursday though, and being snow bound for the day, I was able to attend.

The theme was Grease, with the ladies vying for Pink Ladies and the men as T Birds. $1000L was on the contest board.


Cazzy and I went shopping before hand to find appropriate costumes. She, Consie and I all wore Pink Ladies jackets.

WIth only one male contestant, the top prize of $700L went to Robyn Rossman. On the female side, I am embarrassed to say that I walked away with $100L having earned NO votes at all. Ellyssia Sexton took second place, and Chas Seetan ran away with first!
