1. Midnight Express Mania


What boy doesn't like to play with trains now and then? ;-)Don't miss the hot new Midnight Express from Eye-Catcher's ever creative Constanza Amsterdam! This sexy silk set is the last train leaving town and it is routed straight to your man's heart!

The Midnight Express' dual stroke locomotive is powered by a large pair of 500KW turbines concealed in a sleek, modern housing. The undercarriage is resizable, guaranteed to support the largest capacity loads. Triple redundancy in the linkage between cars ensures a smooth ride on the roughest tracks. Best of all, the hood can be easily removed by any qualified servicing mechanic for fine tuning and adjustment. ;-)

The caboose is similarly fashioned. A detachable silk train drapes all the way to the floor. Three silver warning lights flash automatically when the train is in motion. And a distinctive black heart logo is stenciled on the rear fender.

The train comes fully assembled but may be reconfigured as needed. Select from one of six timing options to ensure maximum performance. Detach casings and mounting brackets with a simple click. Automatic reassembly also provided. Custom lighting is supplied. And you can easily boot anyone who doesn't have their fare off the train.

OK, so what does all this railery mean to the more literally minded? Simply this - these silks are HUD equipped! All your passenger - er - guy needs to do is click on the bra or skirt and you will be presented with the option of removing the item. The HUD menu contains an option to put them all back on with a single click. Block persistent pests with the blacklist option. Highlight your face. And you can choose from 6 different dances including the choo choo, i mean cha cha! lol

Best of all, these silks sould be yours for free. Click the Midnight Mania poster in the Eye-Catcher store in the BDSM-Life sim to enter your name in the daily drawing for a chance to win a set!



Or visit Eye-Catcher and buy a set for only $500L!

2. Fiction Contest


Think you write great BDSM fiction? If so, consider entering the BDSM-Life Newsletter Fiction Contest. In addition to publishing the winning entries, the first place winner will receive $600L, second place will take $300L, and third is worth $100L.

What are we looking for? We want something fresh and exciting, and obviously with a BDSM slant, of course! Although your submission may be inspired by SL events, please do not submit verbatim chat logs. And we would prefer stories that are well written and easily readable. I hate to be the typical schoolmarm, but poor spelling and missing punctuation can render the best story unreadable. Nor does our editing staff have the time to edit submissions for publication. So please try to make your writing as clean as possible if you want to be seriously considered, OK?

You may begin submitting contest entries to Roni Scarmon immediately. The submission window will be open until the end of June. The winners will be announced July 7.

3. Adult Content - Age Verification



Like it or not, you need to be age verified if you want to continue to enjoy the BDSM Life sim. One way to do so is to purchase Lindens. You can supply credit card information directly to LL or use Pay Pal, as I have done. An alternative is the Aristotle Integrity check process, which verifies driver's license, national ID card, or passport information for 157 nations. This removes anonymity somewhat, unfortunately, but that's the price we have to pay to access adult content, evidently.

Visit the Aristotle website at http://integrity.aristotle.com/, if you like. It explains the process somewhat, but there is no way to get verified there. Instead, you must visit www.secondlife.com and log in there using your SL avatar name and password. You'd think they'd make it available in world, but that would be too easy, I suppose. Anyway, once you log in you'll see an option for Age Verification in the list of links on the left hand side. Click that to open the page shown below and fill in the requested information.

Time is running out to get age verified. DO so soon - we don't want to miss any of you in the BDSM Life sim!

5. The Hunt - Part 1 - By Larae Magic


The Hunt: part one.

Praxis dropped from his mount to the ground in an almost silent crouch, sun darkened fingers reaching out to the earth to test the barely perceptable track. With a touch as light as a feather's caress he read the sign left by his prey. His dark head lifted, nostrils flaring as he drew in a deep breath... one word slid through his focused mind..."close". In a low stalk, soft leathers molded to his lean muscled form making not even a single trace of sound, he worked his way through the dense forest after what ran in obvious fear...careless in flight. His ears picked up the sound of the running... a deep masculine male smile spread over his face as he picked up his speed to pursue what he had spent the night in careful pursuit of.

Sunhalo felt another branch snag her torn gown, snaring her tight... tears of fear and hurt trailed along her pale yet dirty cheeks. Small fingers grasped the tatters of the once glorious silver threaded midnight blue skirt, tugging hard. Her eyes darting in panic through the deep darkness of the thick trees...not seeing, but feeling along all her senses the One...who sought her. A whimper slipping past her parched lips as she fights the snarled dress held fast by the branch as if in direct aliance with HIM. "let me go!" she pulled with desperation and the fabric renders in a loud long tear to her round pale hip...but she was free. In a whirl of swishing fabric she turns and flees further into the cool darkening forest.

His eyes watch her slender supple forn fight the grasp of the tree as his ears pick up the unmistable sound of tearing silk... the smile widens on his usually hard lips as he sees the smooth pale flesh exposed by the tattered swirling material...and knew...with out any doubt... she was his and would kneel in woman's softness at his feet. A nod... and he stepped in light a silent pursuit allowing her to run her wildness into fatigue. Dark eyes watching her and the surroundings carefully as he kept careful pace with her...the one who would soon...very soon... surrender.

Please consider taking your picture with the protest signs in BDSM-Life and posting them on the Flickr site at:

You can also still vote on Jira at:

Jira Vote Site

But what do you do if all our protesting falls on deaf ears? We could boycott Second Life, of course - take our dollies and dishes and go elsewhere, so to speak. If enough people did this, the financial blow might be significant enough to LL to force reconsideration of the issue. And pigs may fly (certainly someday in SL anyway!)

Unfortunately, of all the talk of alternative grids I have heard, I have yet to see such a place. If you're seriously considering a total shift to another engine, you'll be starting over in what, Entropia or World of Warcraft? All your SL dollies and dishes are useless elsewhere. Do we really want to give up everything we've done for ourselves here? Not this girl, thanks anyway!

Like it or not, you need to be age verified if you want to continue to enjoy the BDSM Life sim. One way to do so is to purchase Lindens. You can supply credit card information directly to LL or use Pay Pal, as I have done.

3. To Obey or Not To Obey - by Kadin Ansar


Domme/switch/sub Corner

Every dominant wants perfectly obedient sentient property. Right? Wrong! The dominants worth their salt want obedience plus some. They also want service, and preferably good service at that!

It's common knowledge that most dominants don't take well to SAMs (Smart Ass Masochists), and that even fewer enjoy blind obedience - they could just go to their local WalMart and buy a doormat if that's what they wanted after all. So what's the difference between obedience and service, and which one takes precedence?

This usually becomes something to think about when the dominant has issued any standing orders. Now, standing orders like, “Always have something available for me to drink,” or, “Have my clothing ready for me each morning,” don't usually cause any issues. It's when there's a standing order regarding health issues for either of them that things start to get messy. And boy, can they get messy quick.

Let's look at a scenario using the incredibly common standing order of, “The sentient property is supposed to tell the dominant if there is a physical or mental problem that needs to be addressed.” After all, the sentient property's mind and body no longer belong to them; they belong to the dominant. Many dominants I know refer to this as, “If I break my toys, I can't play with them again.” Hmmmm ... and let's use the immediate order of, “Please me sexually,” for this little adventure of ours. Another common order, and a simple enough task, right? Perhaps not as simple as one might think.

The dominant is quickly approaching the cusp – ready to take that always sought wonderous flight off of the cliff – when the sentient property encounters an immediate and severe emotional trauma flashback, asthma attack, physical injury flare-up, or any of the other countless and nasty problems possible. The sentient property doesn't want to be displeasing (and don't tell me that having to stop right then, right there isn't going to make the dominant upset in some form or another here folks), but is snagged neatly in a catch twenty-two.

So, what is the sentient property to do? Ignore the standing order and try to push through whatever massive issue it is that just cropped up like Jack's beanstalk on steroids? That's going to earn displeasure for damaging the dominant's property. How about stop trying to complete the immediate order, back away, explain what happened and beg forgiveness? The dominant is going to be how forgiving when just denied an orgasm? Yeah, thought so. It's even better if the sentient property has to not only stop their activities, but walk away without a single word to get and use their inhaler so they can breathe enough to explain what happened.

No matter what, an order is going to be disobeyed. It's simply unavoidable.

Enter service. Sticking with the severe asthma attack as our example, if the sentient property doesn't do something about their inability to breathe (breathing being addictive and all), they aren't going to be able to perform the, “Please me sexually,” order ever again. Okay, so maybe I'm being somewhat morbid or over exaggerating a teeny-tiny bit, but the fact is that the sentient property is going to at least need immediate and proper attention or there is going to be a hospital trip in the very near future. I think any reasonable person can see here that the sentient property should bloody well stop fooling around in the bed and find that inhaler (and the orgasm denied Dominant is usually reasonable in a minute or two - honest!). So one aspect of good service can be defined as correctly choosing which order to follow if two or more orders come into conflict with each other.

The same goes with a standing order for the sentient property to take care of a dominant's health. For example the dominant is allergic to something, let's say shellfish. People never seem to be allergic to shellfish lightly; it's always a serious allergy for some reason that's beyond me. Not to mention that we seem to be allergic to the things we love the most. Anyway, the pair is out at a gathering one evening and the dominant, who really loves shrimp, issues the immediate order of, “Get me some shrimp cocktail from the buffet.” Should the sentient property obey the immediate order or should they obey the standing order. Mind you, obeying the standing order is going to make the both of them look really bad; it's going to appear to all the other people present that the sentient property is being blatantly impudent and disobedient. Not good in a big way.

To obey or not to obey? Sometimes the correct answer is, “Both.”

If you have gotten this far, I thank you for your patience with my babbling, and hope that it has proven at least somewhat informative. As always, if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me either in-world or via e-mail at kadinansar@gmail.com

4. Tarl's Valentine Story (part 3)


"Hmmppppphhhhhhhhhhhh??" She looked up at him, eyes piercing hislike daggers. I'm thirsty, Ms. Drew. I thought a cold refreshing drink of icewater would be nice.

"Plfffffff .... " The air went out of her suddenly ... She was pleading with her eyes. Posing too. God, he wanted her then. It made him want to just hold her gently ...

He brought a pitcher ... water brimming with ice. He poured a glass and sipped ...

"Like some, Ms. Drew?"

He enjoyed watching his gift squirming on her pole.

"Hmmmppphhh!"

He heard that she was not liking having being gagged while he was drinking ice cold water

"Here, let me get that gag. On the other hand, I can think of other uses for ice cubes."

"Nopppffff!!"

"You DO want some, then?"

"Hmf?" She was nodding her head as much as she could.

He smiled evilly, loving the scene of her strapped to the pole.

He reached back and unclipped her collar. Then he released the gag.

"Better?"

He held the glass to her lips and gave her one sip ... then another.

"More, p-please?" she croaked being bound and gagged for a long time without anything to drink

He gave her another sip ... Then he slipped his hand into her hair and pulled her head back so she had to look up at him.

"Heeeell fffffffff .... " he sealed her lips with his and his tongue was darting, teasing, rough against hers as they caressed one another and his other hand roamed over her helpless body ... toying with her as she fought to free herself ...

He came up for air ... finally. He stood up, and assumed his most pompous pose.

"That was the beginning of your training in lust, Ms. Drew. Shall we continue?"

Then he leaned over and whispered in her ear, "Or would you rather just go to bed and make love, My lady Nicole? ..."

"Will you keep me helpless?" she asked.

"Don't I ... almost always?
[
He began to try to disentangle her from the post. It was harder than he thought it would be for she was almost welded there. The bra, the shirt. Then he came to the dowel. He helped her to raise up on her knees
... then slipped it free and she groaned with relief as she straightened her back. As she did, he noticed how her cuffs were connected.

"Clever, Girl," he praised her. "You pressed the thumbcuffs against the post to close them, didn't you?

"Yefffffffffppppmmmmm."

He leaned down and kissed her again, gently this time. At least it started out gently until she leaned toward him and kissed him back harder until they were out of breath again.

"Did you like the trick with the cuffs?" She asked.

"I really did. It was really neat. Totally helpless with a ratchet or two. That collar, though. Could have been dangerous."

"Hmmm .... Yup. I did try it first, though. Before I cuffed my wrists," She explained

"Got a key somewhere near?"

"And if I dont want you to uncuff my hands just yet?" she mused teasing him.

"For your ankles, silly," he grined as he pinched her nipples to make her tell him where the key was...

"Under the candlestick, you fiend!"

He unlocked her ankles, then locked them again once he had freed her from the post. He pulled her down on her side next to the fire ankles tied up to wrists, thighs spread wide by the bar she'd placed there.

He sealed her lips. Then he touched her, caressing her inner thighs, tracing her panties. Massaging, teasing, toying until she arched her back and exploded.

He picked her up and carried her off to the bedroom. And he tied her spread eagle, taut and helpless like he know she wanted.

And he made love to her again, and then they took a bath and played. And he decieded to take another shower and play with her again. And during the whole time he kept her totally helpless

Finally she layed gently hogtied on her side, held by soft silky scarves, and they whispered about this and that.

"Would you like your present now?" he asked, with a evil smile

"B-but the f-flowers?"

"Hmmm ... Those are cause I love you. Wanted to, Fannigrrrl." he leaned over and kissed her, just brushing her lips with his.

W-where are ... ?" She was excited again not knowing what he got.

"Under the bed, Babe. All you gotta do is get loose ..."

"Petrrrrrr!!"

He gagged her again.... and pulled her down on top. And she forgot about the presents for the moment.

He laid it out on the bed so she would see it ... all soft and black and sexy. Something she'd wanted. A suit Emma might want ... or Fanni.

Gawd it was beautiful. She tried it on, zipping the zippers. FDonning the calfhigh boots. She was Fanni and Emma. It was the most beautiful catsuit she´d even seen

She turned to him. He was wearing his bowler hat and suit. With that cute little bowtie and vest. Then he felt her pull him down on top of herself.

"What adventures do you have in mind next, Mr. Stead?" She asked

"Whatever do you have in mind, Mrs. Peel?" he replied ...with a wicked smile playing on his lips...

And with that we end the last part of the valentines gift.

Lyssa Daehlie and Ilana Debevec were on-hand to meet and greet folks at their store in the BDSM-Life sim last Wednesday, May 20th. Rezzed copies of their merchandise were set up outside their shop for people to try. Best of all, they offered a 50% off sale to everybody who dropped by.

Soon the sim was nearly full. Think Kink had to set up a second vendor just to take all of the orders!

3. This Slave's Story - by Larae Magic


Domme/switch/sub Corner

There were people coming into the online “room” that had been empty and my home for months. I had only been away a week…the longest time away from that spot I had ever taken. I had slept my little avatar in the room that had been given me before everyone had pretty much abandoned the home. But generally … I did not mind the ghost home…it was safe, if silent. Not only was the home seeing people come and go…but it had become a Gorean Home once more. Something that frightened me to my very core, for this uncommon slave girl had not been accepted by the first Goreans I had met within that site, much less the years of my submissive time being told...NEVER go to Gor… it is not for you and they will tear you asunder. So that week as I watched from the sidelines as Masters, Mistresses and slaves of Gor began to arrive…panic began to settle within me.

I had stayed away a couple days… arrived in the Home to several people in the gathering area. This horribly shy girl felt unreasonable fear clutch my heart. I silently watched for a few minutes the conversations between the occupants. Heart racing…tears literally on my cheeks…I begged the Master present if I might leave. Ready to hit the red button to escape…The Master instead of absently saying “yes girl” for what ever reason on that particular day at that exact moment….instead asked…”why do you want to leave, girl?” Absolute panic wrapped a strangle hold on me. Not only being denied escape, so that I could RUN away…but also, a question…I would HAVE to talk…to answer this Master’s direct query…I could not deny the direct question…or lie… My heart was beating so hard and it was perhaps one of the hardest things…but I answered…”that I was afraid with so many there and it being a Gorean Home… may I leave”. The Master answered NO and demanded to speak with me in private IM. Another something I did not do… yet that moment…I obeyed the command to give access to myself by this stranger…this Master…who was refusing to allow me to RUN!

Over the course of the next months this Master became a very deep and close friend to me. When I felt the most alone and frightened… it was His voice on the other end of the phone… through the hours of the night whispering… “its alright baby” while I dozed fitfully. No demands… nothing forced… just a Man who honestly was there for a woman He felt care for. I will never forget those days…ever! For no other human reached out during that dark time… every day…no strings…no hidden agendas.

But the runner in me slid into control. With the growing confusions and hurt of things I was going through combined with the utmost fear of the depth of feelings for this Master…I RAN…hard and as fast and far as I could. I told all I was NOT lifestyle… it was NOT for me, though I knew it was…just didn’t think I could survive within in…I ran…and ran and ran. I did everything I could to push this Man…my best friend away…drive Him away…anything I could.

The results… an unending spiral of chaos and further darkness as life became nothing but pain.

Then, on a day when the hurt within me was reaching levels I did not think I could withstand… His collar slapped about my throat and the world came to a screeching sudden stop. Everything fell into place…calm became my center with His words…SURRENDER GIRL, you are MY baby, MY slave”… and my… “yes Master”. The time since that day… has been wonderous, and filled with self realizations of who I am…the slave I am…and that it took this special, caring and strong Master to tame the running wild creature I was. He has always had my respect, now He has my Love…and my surrender and in that surrender I know… I am slave, of worth and treasured.

5. Tarl's Valentine Story (part 1)


Now this is a story about a girl wanting to give her Master a special surprise for Valentine.

He will be home soon, the girl thought. Better finish getting ready, she glanced at the items she put forward so far with a impish smile.

The floor in front of the fireplace was covered with gaily colored cushions. And from them a slender glossy black pole protruded in phallic splendor, festooned with a chains and cuffs and collar. Candles waited in profusion to be lit.

Mmmm ... What else, she thought, Wrist cuffs ... check. Leg cuffs ... check. Gag? ... shit!

She ran to the toybox in the bedroom and retrieved the cover ball gag. Hesitated, then grasped a black silken hood.

I want to be really helpless tonight she thought.

She could feel herself becoming damp already, just a little bit.

Then she looked at herself in the mirror... Yuk!!! All rumpled and dusty from cleaning and re arranging

Who should I be tonight she thought to herself, a barbarian princess, harem girl, intrepid explorer, jungle girl?

She really wanted to be a fannigirl, but her Master Peter would not allow that.

“Shit!!” she said aloud as the doorbell rang.

“Just what I needed,” she cursed, as she had little time and she did not want to get interrupted right now. She went down and opened the door and saw it was a flower delivery and signed for it happily, roses no less. She was getting gushy and had to remind herself she had lots to do.

Outside Peter watched from the corner as she signed for the flowers. He could see she wasn't ready ... He waited. Finally the bathroom light came on.

Soon, he thought. Another hour at most ...

She jumped in the shower and sighed as the shower felt wonderful. The stress and tension from the cleaning and preparing was washing away from her body as it was replaced by anticipation. As she was drying her hair she watched herself in the mirror

And she had a wicked idea, speaking out loud, “Yes that would be perfect.”

She walked into her bedroom and laid out a short tartan plaid, pleated skirt, a short sleeve cotton blouse, and a pair of bobby socks.

Hmmm cotton panties? Not!! she explained to the empty room.

Smiling she pulled out a pair of small satin thongs that was a size to small. And thin spaghetti strings on the side. White of course, school girls look good in white.

A bra maybe? she thought, and put on a underwire bra with demi cups. She smiled as her nipples would show nicely through the blouse.

Hmmm if i use the triangle cup, he could tie my breast right over it she thought, if he wanted to. And a pair of canvas sneakers

She made one more check in the mirror and unbuttoned another button and pushed her arms behind her back and smiled. Wow, Peter will love this cleavage

From outside peter was watching the house as the bedroom was now dark, only a light flicker from the den. What was she doing? He decided he would give her another 20 minutes.

She knelt next to the post, then had another thought. Here she was ready at last. First the gag... pulling it tightly then tighter still untill the ball was clearly outlined through the wide leather band that pressed against her face from nose to chin.

The strap was tight against the nape of her neck below her ponytail. Hmmm what would Peter do with that, she wondered. She buckled the soft 2" wide leather collar just snug against her throat

“God!” she said she was feeling helpless already and she only just started. Now the hard part, she thought.

This part might not work. She tried kneeling and found that if she kneeled just right she could slip into the 2" dowel through the matching hole in the post. Then she slipped her arms over it and tried to pull her wrist in front.

Hmmm better lower it a notch, she though and tried again, and she found it just doable. Now for the ankle cuffs. Nice and snug with the d-rings facing inwards. Then thumbcuffs to lock them behind the post. She kneeled upright and placed the spreader bar between her thighs and strapped the thigh cuffs tightly.

Gawd...she could feel the tension on her inner thighs and a coldness through her damp panties. She reached up and clipped the back of her collar to the post.

Could she do it? She tried the trick with her arms again and she found she could barely reach if she arched her back, and held her head up.

She grabbed the wrist cuff and made then snug against her skin and clipped a second thumbcuff through one of the d-rings, was the direction correct? Yep she was growing more and more tingly as she thought what she would look like held cruelly against the post.

Quickly girl, she thought, before you change your mind. And she pulled the black silk hood and snugged it down with the drawstring.

She slipped her arms over the cross part and brought the alongside to the post and she found she had to arch her back even more then she thought.

And finally she got the second thumbcuff hooked to the second d-ring and she was thinking, if I just could. Then she heard the clicks telling her the thumbcuff was locked and held her good against the post

Outside the house Peter was slowly coming closer to the house.

He eased the Jag into the garage ... Then hesitated. Would she be ready for me yet? What kind of a fix would she get herself into this time? Hmmm ... Better not wait too long. He locked up and headed for the door ...

What was his gift for valentine? Would he like it?

To be continued…

Weekly Kinky Newsletter Issue 18 May 18 - May 24

Newsletter for BDSM-Life!

4. Domme/switch/sub Corner
5. BDSM-Life Slave Auctions
6. Photo Contest

1. Highllghted Shop - Think Kink



Think Kink specializes in high quality scripted BDSM toys. Lyssa Daehlie and Ilana Debevec have a dazzling array of BDSM playthings, many of which will be on display in the common area outside their Think Kink store in the BDSM Life sim from May 18-24. The review below will give you some idea of what to expect but you simply must come by the sim to see these toys in action!

To avoid repeating myself, let me first describe their common elements and then we'll delve into the differences that make each toy unique and worth collecting. Yes, they all come with custom animations and sound effects as you might expect with any SL toys. They are also typically modifiable so you can customize parts, like adding animations or changing textures. Beyond that, many of them are equipped with Chatterbox, which sends erotic chat messages during use. Look for the impressive multi-language feature in the more advanced versions of a few Think Kink playthings. Most of their toys are also RLV enabled, or equipped to interface with AutoZHAO, Lockmeister, Sensations, and Xcite enhancements to kick the experience up a notch for hard core lifestylers! The Graboid feature grabs other RLV users up to 90 meters away. Most of these toys may be shared with a group when desired, and hand out cuffs, too. And Think Kink provides plenty of detailed help in Notecards, offers technical support when needed, and provides free updates on many items in their line. All this for $99L-$349L in most cases!

Allmans Triangle is an RLV enabled suspended bondage toy. It comes with some beautifully realistic "struggle" animations and chain noises. Uses ChameleonTEX to change the toy's appearance, allowing you to select from one of three different styles: Cabot, Dungeon, or Tech. The menu options can give your victim cuffs, strip their clothing, and lock them in. Allmans Triangle is only $199L!

Lisa's Delight II is an inexpensive fuck toy with loads of features and a gratifying SL experience. The main menu contains all the great basic functions to be expected from dd Studios, notably free cuffs, strip, RLV HUD, Lock and AutoLock, + Graboid and Deny Orgasm for Xcite and Sensations users. The vibration and thrust menu uses all 12 buttons to activate the vibration speed as well as thrust for a little of the good old in-and-out! And the vibrator/thrust menu can be accessed by the victim. ChameleonTEX comes with 9 different textures to customize its appearance to your liking. Lisa's Delight II is just $199L

Think Kink reached back to the basic foundations of BDSM to construct "The Cell". This particular model is called "Crystal Confinement", but there are 18 different models available to choose from, including Brushed Steel, Ammo Can, Cargo Container, Bars, Stoned, and Incubus, just to name a few. You're sure to find a style that matches your dungeon! It supports an array of RLV features including TP restrictions, no sitting, denied access to inventory, NCs and IM and lots more. Inside each cell is a multi-standard LEASH RING, Tested for Xcite Chain Anywhere, Amethyst, Dari's, M&S, AE and Marine's Real Restraint. You can attach more than one inmate to the same ring. A single cell, like the one shown here, is only L$99, with a double cell for L$199!

The "Hydrone", inspired by the Zodiac sign of Cancer, the crab, is a toy for two! The first to sit is chained spread eagle. The second kneels between the legs of the first, while Chatterbox describes the action in 1 of 7 langauges. The "Hydrone's" owner menu will give your victim a set of cuffs, strip their clothing off, deny orgasms to enhanced attachments, and so much more than I have room to list here! The "Hydrone" is only $319L.


The PX3-888 is an awesome futuristic slave pole, that generates a force field to keep the sub in place. I could hear a faint electronic hum while locked inside it. It will deliver the RLV HUD to the prisoner, enforces mouselook, denies orgasms, can strip the prisoner and render them deaf or mute, and delivers English Chatterbox text. The P3X-888 is $319L.

The primary difference between the Valstret 2, on the left above, and Valstret 3 on the right, appears to be the base of the stocks. They otherwise appear to be equal in functionality and price. Valstret II, on the left above, are delightfully detailed stocks. They are equipped with the ChameleonTEX that lets you select from 9 different styles, including Egyptian, Chrome, Peking, and Dungeon just to name a few. The length of the cross bar is adjustable with the click of a button to accommodate avatars with longer or shorter arms. Other standard options are Lock, Strip, Get Cuffs Grab Victim, and Orgasm Deny. The Chatterbox is multi-lingual. Valstret 2 & 3 are both $319L.

Daisy Ichi is another fuck toy, with the primary difference being that your victim is on their hands and knees rather than sitting upright. Use ChameleonTEX to select frmo 9 different styles. Daisy Ichi is $349L.

Tarl's Scourge is a top end slave pole that supplies both color changing cuffs AND a whip at the click of a button. Also provides the RLV HUD. Main menu also features Autolock and lock, Deny Orgasm, or select from five different poses for your victim to assume. Tarl's Scourge is $349L

Y-Me? is the first of Think Kink's "Real Feel" line, designed after real life toys! Two custom animations may be applied to the victim. Strip them with the click of a button, grab an RLV enabled avatar from 90 meters away, and Deny Orgasms. The advanced ChamelonTEX script lets you change both the color of the knee pads and the style of the toy for 81 different combinations! Y me? is $349L.

If you think the "Passion" recliner is just your average swivel chair, you can sit on it and rotate (using the arrow keys)! lol Although it weighs in at a mere 6 prims, this stylish recliner is packed with features. Sure it has a nice cross legged sitting pose, but that's just where the fun starts! Invite an intimate friend to "Kick Back" after you are seated and they can choose from two different lap dances. Add more by simply dropping them into the contents tab and editing the animation note card. Don't like the style or color? Select from any of 23 different styles, including black with brass or chrome, denim, green, leopard print, or red, just to name a few. And if you don't like any of those, it's a snap to add your own style. Simple to understand directions are provided in a HELP note card available from the menu. Toggle user rights to permit or prohibit others from modifying the style or using the dances. It's also equipped with an update feature for free lifetime updates. The "Passion" Recliner is $799.

Lyssa will be available to demonstrate their toys at their shop in the BDSM Life sim on Wednesday, May 20 from 10AM - 1PM SLT. They'll be available to answer questions and handing out freebies.

2. BDSM-Life Victory Garden



I'm not too proud to admit that one of the things that originally kept me coming back to the BDSM Life sim back when I was a cash strapped newb, was the old raffle ball that randomly handed out 5 Lindens every 15 minutes. It was retired when the sim moved to the mainland, but not Consie's generosity to the less well endowed, financially speaking, anyway. Most recently, she planted a Victory Garden just outside of the Eye-Catcher Shop in the BDSM-Life sim. Anybody can harvest Lindens here. And those whose fortune has changed for the better may plant some instead.

Sable Lassard says, "I'm a female submissive/slave, literate and creative, looking for an SL Master for an ongoing relationship. I have few SL limits, and an almost limitless appetite for being degraded, humiliated and generally treated poorly. I love to serve and to please my Dominants, and I enjoy the sensation of belonging to someone." Read more about Sable from her Note Card at the Dating Centre in the BDSM-Life sim.

I have few SL limits, and an almost limitless appetite for being degraded, humiliated and generally treated poorly. I love to serve and to please my Dominants, and I enjoy the sensation of belonging to someone." Read more about Sable from her Note Card at the Dating Centre in the BDSM-Life sim.

Shiva Jumanya says "Male Dominant, real life experience preferred. Please read The Dominant's Creed at http://www.wired-productionz.com/bri.dhe/Library.html to understand what I am looking for, it says it far better than I can. Honesty and reliability is a must, should have at least 6 hours a week in SL to spend with me in order to build the relationship."

Timelord Aeon says "i am 32 years old dom form the uk. im a search for a sub/slave who is sub/slave in rl. aged 20 to 40. who is single in sl and rl.and will start relationship in sl and then take it to rl."

If you are interested in any of these folks, look for their full information cards in the new Dating Centre & Photo Contest pyramid! You may find much more information than what is listed above.

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

D/s and how to make it more fun

[12:56] Tarl Field: And its more of a relaxed class tonight as i want your input as well so we all can help people getting new ideas
[12:57] Tarl Field: i guess yogi felt he was in the wrong place
[12:58] Tarl Field: We can start it off slowly with a common problem in all relationships in bdsm.

[12:59] Tarl Field: After a time it gets to a state of rutine your sub has learned what you wanted her to learn and its starting to feeling boring.
[12:59] Tarl Field: Before that happens you need to ask yourself what can we do to make it fun and exciting again
[13:00] Tarl Field: So does a sub always have to do things in a special way or can she add little ideas of her own to a session to spice it up a bit

[13:00] Tarl Field: Welcome joan

[13:00] Joan Randt: thanks
[13:01] Tarl Field: I know from myself i am a creature of habits
[13:01] Tarl Field: And i am sure others are as well.
[13:01] Tarl Field: BUt we as dominant have a responsability to challange our subs and they in turn must challange us
[13:02] Tarl Field: Which may sound strange to say that a sub must challange a dom

[13:03] Tarl Field: Now i sdont mean the sub should be disrespectful
[13:03] Tarl Field: But sometimes a sub needs to be a bit of a brat to ignite that little extra spark in the dom...
[13:03] Baby Anatra: smiles big
[13:03] Anaxagoras McMillan: just subtile - smiles

[13:04] Tarl Field: And we doms need to challange the girls by giving the some extra evil tasks
[13:04] Tarl Field: Maybe lioke taking them out for dinner but giving them a bob to keep them company under their clothes
[13:05] Tarl Field: and most girls know what i mean with b.o.b

[13:05] Anaxagoras McMillan: lol

[13:06] Tarl Field: So far any questions or remarks?

[13:07] Jini Shearer: i am sorry but i dont know what a b.o.b is
[13:07] Anaxagoras McMillan: battery operated boyfriend

[13:07] Anaxagoras McMillan: lol
[13:07] Tarl Field chuckles
[13:07] Jini Shearer: aaahh thank u
[13:08] Tarl Field: When is the biggest risk for a D/s relationship to get boring?
[13:08] Anaxagoras McMillan: hmmmmm
[13:08] Ivet Writer: good evening, Tarl
[13:08] Anaxagoras McMillan: i think it can become vanilia or less trilling
[13:09] Tarl Field: evening ivet
[13:09] Tarl Field: well thats the risk
[13:09] Classroomchair5prims whispers: Hi Ivet Writer! Touch me for Menu. Say /1a to Adjust.
[13:10] Tarl Field: But what i mean is if the relationship gets so organised you kow that around the time the kids go to sleep they toys come out it gets boring as its get to be a rutine
[13:10] Tarl Field: But its not hard to make it fun again all you need is a bit of imagination

[13:11] coralie Johin is Online
[13:11] Tarl Field: as i said planting a bob in your sub under a sexy dress and its a advantage if its radio controlled and nte wired
[13:11] Tarl Field: Or telling her to use no under wear under a short skirt/dress
[13:12] Anaxagoras McMillan smiles with a blush
[13:12] Tarl Field: Or if your having kids getting a babysiter and going out to the town and going to a hotel after and spending the night away from home with some bondage games
[13:13] Tarl Field: Or doing something as simple as blindfolding your sub and making her think your showing her off to the public but your not... grins
[13:13] Maria Vought: I think sms's throughout the day, building up to a scene, is also a good way to spice things up

[13:13] Tarl Field: Maria thats one way

[13:14] Tarl Field: Or sending your sub to work with something inside her unpowered so its just sitting there reminding her what will be when she gets home
[13:15] Tarl Field: If you live in a house it might be a bit to risky to leave a note on the door for her to strip down to her underwear and wait for you to open the door
[13:15] IRene Manatiso is Online
[13:15] Tarl Field: But it will spice things up

[13:16] Tarl Field: Or doing shopping with your girl to something she dont expect
[13:16] Tarl Field: this works best if you have a garage
[13:16] Tarl Field: As you need to tie you girl up and lock her in the trunk of your car or in the nagage area if you have a stationwagon
[13:17] Tarl Field: bagage
[13:17] Tarl Field: The dangers with this is if you get in a accident or get pulled over by the cop
[13:17] BelleVie Moonites giggles at the thought of explaining that to the officer
[13:18] Anaxagoras McMillan: @
[13:18] Tarl Field: As many of you are thinking is how to explain it to the cops...
[13:18] Anaxagoras McMillan: ist all about trill and excitement, not?

[13:18] Tarl Field: My advice is dont get stopped...lol
[13:18] Anaxagoras McMillan smiles
[13:18] Tarl Field: and also dont do it during a heatwave
[13:18] Master Frakture: Laughs, very good advice.
[13:18] BelleVie Moonites: lol....there is fun in the risk.
[13:19] Tarl Field: specially not if you have a sedan
[13:19] Tarl Field: well if you get pulled over the risk is for the dom if the sub wants to get even she might kick inside the trunk
[13:19] Tarl Field: so its exciting for both
[13:20] Tarl Field: Or why not roleplay plannign a day without interuptions and doing a robber captive scen
[13:20] Tarl Field: with the dom as the robber and the sub being the sexy housewife
[13:20] Tarl Field: getting bound and ravished... grins
[13:20] Anaxagoras McMillan: @
[13:21] Tarl Field: yes anax
[13:21] xXElBeReThXx Dragovar: se reparten caramelos ?
[13:21] Anaxagoras McMillan: or simply turn a relax evening in to lecture and hard questions
[13:21] Anaxagoras McMillan: makes me small
[13:21] Tarl Field: thats one thing you an do
[13:21] Tarl Field: can
[13:21] Tarl Field: or introdue a new training excersice
[13:22] Tarl Field: having the sub serve you drinks while she is restrained
[13:22] Tarl Field: Of course restrained so she has a fair chance of making it but it will be hard
[13:22] Tarl Field: tieing her hands in front connected to a crotchrope
[13:23] Tarl Field: which will pull the rope tight every time she has to reach for something
[13:23] Anaxagoras McMillan: oh my
[13:23] Tarl Field: and of course when she is kneeling she has to keep the rope extra tight to not drop the tray.-... grins evil
[13:24] Anaxagoras McMillan: your a sadist Sir :)
[13:24] Tarl Field: And if the sub learns to master it fast add som extra high heels
[13:24] Tarl Field: Baby and pink am i sadist?

[13:25] Tarl Field: I been called evil and being pure evil but not a sadist but maybe i am
[13:25] Anaxagoras McMillan: was ment in funny way Sir
[13:25] Baby Anatra: smiles at Master can be very evil at times
[13:25] Tarl Field: I know dear dont worry.-... grins
[13:25] Tarl Field: Or if you want to use a evil way of punishing your girl
[13:26] Tarl Field: tie them into a tight hogtie

[13:26] Tarl Field: tie three ropes from the bound girl to diffrent places and diffrent lengths
[13:26] Tarl Field: blindfold her and tell her she is free when she reaches your feet... grins

[13:28] Tarl Field: that will make her work as if she dont make it in a set time she will have to spend the night like that
[13:29] Tarl Field: All you need is some evil ideas and the mental strength to do without thinking your to cruel to the girl you love

[13:29] Tarl Field: Which after a tiome is not as easy as you think
[13:29] Tarl Field: Any questions so far
[13:30] Anaxagoras McMillan: no Sir
[13:31] Tarl Field: Any suggestions from the class what you can do... smiles

[13:31] Anaxagoras McMillan: maybe yes
[13:32] Tarl Field: go on anax
[13:32] Koko Falworth: smiles at Sir Griff and alma

[13:32] Anaxagoras McMillan: to learn protocols, nice things to use, and practisch a lot to master them, and so much you can use
[13:32] Alma Fiertze smiles and waves :)
[13:33] Anaxagoras McMillan: serving drinks, how to behave at different situations etc
[13:33] Tarl Field: correct anax
[13:33] Tarl Field: that is specially usefull if you have people that are in bdsm comes for a visit
[13:34] Anaxagoras McMillan: yes and little show off what i have learned :)
[13:34] Tarl Field: Also in normal situations set of rules is always good to use as the sub needs to adjust to not being to obvious that she is a sub
[13:34] Anaxagoras McMillan: and make my Master smile and feel proud
[13:34] Tarl Field: Thats a good statement from anax and it sums up the most things a sub wants.
[13:35] Tarl Field: She or he wants their owner to be proud of them and they want to please the person thats there owner
[13:35] Tarl Field: If a sub feels she is not being allowed to do those basic things she will feel worthless
[13:36] Tarl Field: And that is basically the same as your killing your sub
[13:36] Anaxagoras McMillan: nods
[13:36] Anaxagoras McMillan: @
[13:36] Tarl Field: anax
[13:36] Master Frakture: I agree wholeheartedly Tarl.
[13:36] Anaxagoras McMillan: one owner i had little over a year ago...
[13:36] Anaxagoras McMillan: thought having power means always tell no if i request
[13:37] BelleVie Moonites: thats abuse of power
[13:37] Anaxagoras McMillan: yea
[13:37] BelleVie Moonites quickly puts her hands over her mouth not meaning to interrupt
[13:37] Tarl Field: Now thats also a problem for some new dominants
[13:37] Anaxagoras McMillan: but always tell yes get boring to :)
[13:37] Tarl Field: A dom needs to remember to always listen to a sub as sometimes they do need to talk
[13:38] Tarl Field: outside the rules or roles as dom sub
[13:38] BelleVie Moonites wonders about that as Sir Tarl keeps his subs gagged.
[13:38] Tarl Field: If your rich you can have your girl as a full time sub
[13:38] Koko Falworth: Dominates are not mind readers? :-)
[13:39] Tarl Field: but most of us are not rich so a realistic way of finding time for the play is needed
[13:39] Alma Fiertze giggles
[13:41] Tarl Field: but you need som imagination and you can think up some fun things to do with out to much trouble
[13:42] Tarl Field: And you might wonder why baby is unrestrained and pink is locked up and gagged

[13:42] Tarl Field: well baby is not as free as you think
[13:42] Tarl Field: Her restraints are locked on
[13:42] Tarl Field: and she has not held her keys since she submitted to me
[13:43] Tarl Field: and pink well she is a big brat so she is being kept this way to teach her a lesson

[13:43] Tarl Field: But keeping a sub gagged will make them feel more helpless then any ropes can make them feel
[13:44] Tarl Field: But there are a few things to think of when it comes to gags.
[13:44] Tarl Field: One make sure they dont restricts breathing
[13:44] Tarl Field: Two never leave a sub alone when gagged
[13:45] Tarl Field: you can make them think they are alone if they are blindfolded and having earplugs in their ears
[13:45] Tarl Field: And if you want to use a layer gag start with a cleveage gag then add the packing then a scarf over the mouth to keep it in place
[13:45] Tarl Field: That way they wont choke

[13:47] Tarl Field: any questions so far
[13:47] Anaxagoras McMillan: no Sir

[13:48] Tarl Field: Any one that has anything they wanted to ask but never did ...
[13:49] Tarl Field: Alright as i dont have much more to add i thank you for coming
[13:49] Anaxagoras McMillan: thank you for the class Sir tarl
[13:49] Tarl Field: And i hope you had fun and got some more ideas of how to torment your subs
[13:49] John11011967 Karu: Good Talk thank you Tarl
[13:50] Maria Vought: thank you Sir Tarl
[13:50] anastasia Edenflower: thank you Sir Tarl
[13:50] Koko Falworth: thank you Sir Tarl
[13:50] Tarl Field grins and grabs baby and gags her and locks her wrist behind her back...
[13:50] John11011967 Karu: *Waves* Hi kadan

[13:50] Kaddan Yue hi hon

[13:50] Anaxagoras McMillan: smiles
[13:50] Tarl Field: not that she did anything bad but i like her gagged
[13:51] Tarl Field: *grab
[13:51] Tarl Field: And as i said gagging a sub makes them feel more helpless
[13:52] Tarl Field: And again thank you for coming

[13:52] Tarl Field: i will clean the notecard up a bit then it will be posted in the group and on the website

[13:52] Joan Randt: thanks
[13:53] Jini Shearer: thank u sir tarl
[13:53] Anaxagoras McMillan waves 'good evening to you Sir tarl and everyone"
[13:53] Maria Vought accepted your inventory offer.
[13:54] Tarl Field: Have a good eving and dont forget i have a mail box outside where you can drop notecards if you have questions
