We can only hope….
Second Life Without Sex Would Be a Sad Life, Indeed
Linden Lab has come under fire recently on a number of fronts. German police reportedly found real child pornography in-world; a group in France is demanding that Second Life be banned in its entirety to protect the children; several European countries are cracking down on residents’ ability to create childlike avatars and wear them in Mature areas of the game.
And then director of community affairs Daniel Linden set a match to an already smoldering pile when he “clarified” the Second Life policies around Mature content in the official Linden Lab blog:
Real-life images, avatar portrayals, and other depiction of sexual or lewd acts involving or appearing to involve children or minors; real-life images, avatar portrayals, and other depictions of sexual violence including rape; real-life images, avatar portrayals, and other depictions of extreme or graphic violence, and other broadly offensive content are never allowed or tolerated within Second Life.
