1. 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.

2. Adult Content - Age Verification


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. 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!

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

In Pride and Service,

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.
