This is a place I’ve been wanting to report from for some time, but when I dropped in I was never sure if it was ‘gay’ purely in the male sense, or if it was also lesbian friendly.
So I’ve had two SL friends who are gay visit and report back from French Lovers Resort.
The first short report, from Beeka, my lesbian pal, gives a female perspective.
‘First off, it’s a brilliant looking sim. I had a great time just walking around. But it’s not aimed at lesbians. It is primarily for gay men. Maybe exclusively for gay men. But as women have Bare Buns resort as a female only sim, I don’t have any issues with it. I’m just a little jealous of the building of the sim, which is absolutely brilliant. I’ve got a couple of gay male friends in SL, and I think I’d like to go in their company, and probably well tagged up as a lesbian. I can imagine that some users might be critical of a female invading their space.’
I then asked a gay friend, C, to give his perspective on it.
‘It’s beautifully done, that’s the first thing. I took my SL boyfriend along too, and we had a lot of fun with it. We sat down to dinner, had drinks on a terrace, wandered around a lot of different apartments and shops, picked up some freebies. There’s a lot going on in it. We’ll use it again. The French speaking element of it doesn’t bother me at all, as if we’re going as a couple then we can converse between ourselves. I’m not sure my French language skills would be good enough to engage in conversation with other men. And it is nice to see a focus on non-English gay and gay naturist activity. It’s probably a kind of a niche build, a labour of love, and it is done with loving care and attention to detail. I’d recommend it to all gay men, French speaking or not. And there are pose balls which, hahaha, we availed of 🙂 ‘
