When I was blogging, Ella and I had an in-joke about her covering three perennial naturist issues, body piercings, body hair and circumcision. She always refused. Now that she’s asked me to write a guest column for SLN, I’ve decided to ‘get my own back’ and write the article I always wanted from her! 🙂
I can only give you my personal views, as there’s certainly no definitive view on any of the above topics. Ultimately, it comes down to personal choice. But in the days before the internet shrank the world, and allowed us access to a wide repository of pictorial evidence that ‘normalised’ so much, the three topics above were perennial topics of discussion in naturist magazines.
Personally, I’m not in favour because I’m just too squeamish! I’ve got my ears pierced in real life, but that is the extent of my piercing experience! That aside, I do think that some body piercings look lovely and can be very sexy indeed. I did contemplate a belly piercing at one point, but was largely put off by the fact that my friend had it done and the piercing became infected, which kind of put me off. Of course, in SL I’m less prone to pain 🙂 so at various times I’ve had a nose stud, ear-rings, belly piercing and…yes…even nipple and genital piercings.
I know there are some very pretty body and genital piercings out there, so if it’s something you like the look of….go for it!
Of course, nipple rings can also be (and are) worn by men, but what about genital piercings for them? Away back in the day, when I was a regular blogger and in SL most days, one of my male friends had a lovely looking cock ring, but I’ve not actually found anywhere that’s selling them in SL or on the marketplace.
(Ella comments: ‘Yes, one of my SL friends is an aspiring builder, and is currently working on some stuff we may be able to give away as group gifts through the Moonella Group. He’s currently working on a such an item, and if it is a successful build we’ll offer it through the group. He’s also looking at producing a Prince Albert piercing -ouch- and a range of other piercings, with the intention of eventually opening his own shop on the marketplace or in world. I can’t speak of the methodology of building, as apart from one bad T shirt it’s not something I’ve ever ventured into, but it’s certainly something that may materialise through SLN and Moonella in the future. I’ve got him to send me a pic of the early stages of development, see below, as long as I point out that this is a deliberately early pic of a work in progress, and the finished article will be intended to look better than this. I was going to keep this under wraps for now, but it seems an appropriate place to give everyone a heads up. Typically, though, the intention will be to begin with simple things, such as tank tops and swimwear, not designed by me, lol, free with SLN logos on them, through Moonella. Infomercial ends! 🙂 )
When I blogged, I generally was ‘natural down there’, but in recent months I’ve tended to be a less regular visitor in SL, and quite often clothed when I do get in, so the ‘muff’ has gone, to save time attaching and detaching. I confess there was a time when my SL pubic appearance matched my real life moods, which were generally hairy in the winter months, trimmed more for summer (or shaved). If you’re going to go hairy, then Nearly Tactile is the pubes shop of choice. Armpit hair -hey, I’m European, familiar with European beaches, textile and naturist, where ladies quite often don’t shave their pits- used to be available inworld and looked terrific on those who wore it but, again, that inventiveness appears to have been lost to the grid. Shame. And guys, Nearly Tactile offers ‘man muffs’. Please buy one and use it! The ‘join’ between the penis and the body often looks badly done on men who opt for the shaved look in SL, and the colours often mis-match. A man muff generally hides this awkward join. Just a personal observation, you understand? But again it comes down to personal choice. Some skins do lovely shaved vaginas, others aren’t so accurate, so ladies probably want to take care in selecting a skin. And I’d personally like to see skin designers put them out ‘nude’ in their stores, so we can see the full effect not covered up with ridiculous pasties!
(Ella comments: ‘I’ve IMed Bation, who owns Nearly tactile, to see if she’d be interested in producing armpit hair to the same excellent quality as her muffs, but haven’t received a reply yet)lcomments: ‘I’ve IMed Bation, who owns Nearly tactile, to see if she’d be interested in producing armpit hair to the same excellent quality as her muffs, but haven’t received a reply yet)
All I’m going to say is that the vast majority of SL men are circumcised, probably as it accurately reflects their reality. Being from Europe, where circumcision isn’t practiced so much, I’d say that foreskins are just OK in SL in terms of their design, but aren’t often desperately accurate. If there’s one thing I’d like to see it’s more of a variety in the range of foreskins available, as different men do have a different ‘look’. Ultimately, it’s your avatar, baby, so whatever you prefer, use it.
Xcite’s foreskin is by far the best I’ve seen, and the photos above show an uncut, uncircumcised penis emerging from the foreskin in various stages of erection. The model is wearing a Nearly Tactile man muff, which hides the join between the body and the penis. Even in the hands of a skilled avatar, coloration isn’t 100%, and the muff helps to blend the difference to some extent.
