There are some bodily functions well served by Second Life, namely orgasm. Others, not so much.
Males avatars are more or less required to purchase a penis set for their avatar (yes, of course there are free ones, unrealistically sized, coloured and ridiculous looking) as well as a perfectly sized free male genital set, the Lotus Chrome edition, which you can find at Midnight Lotus. It’s non scripted, which means it doesn’t function in terms or urination, erection or ejaculation. But it does look real, and properly proportioned, so if you’re a new male avatar, it may be that you might wish to pick this up via the link. It’s in a box on the floor (see pic below).

Purchasing male and female genitalia alike provides our avatars with the opportunity to urinate, and with lavatories and appropriate poses available for our SL homes, I would imagine that the act of urination might play a small role in our roleplaying interaction with others.
With the aid of a male friend in SL, we decided to demonstrate how this might work. Firstly, those pants that are halfway off. This is a demo version (L$0) of boxer shorts, half off, that we located on the Marketplace. The full version is L$99 but for our purposes of showing the item in question, the demo version sufficed. The poses are part of the lavatory seen in the photos, and using his male genitalia (Lotus Gold edition), my friend was able to urinate as he might in real life, bringing some level of realism to this generally private bodily function.
This isn’t essentially something that will be to everyone’s taste, but it is something we all do, and there’s a kind of naturist angle to all of this, namely the absence of lavatories on beaches, and we’ll come back to that presently.
Prior to that we’ll address the need for ladies to have a pee.
The female avatars amongst us will know that there is no need for genital add-ons to run a perfectly functional avi and, should it be your particular interest, add female genitalia to your avi to aid and add realism.
Until recently I never felt there was any real need to add on female genitalia and I’ve functioned perfectly well without. However, with this particular post in mind, I’ve recently bought female genitalia (Lotus, again, but there are other makes available).
While researching this, I discovered that females do have a cheap option for functioning genitals, with the existence of a ‘Sex and Spice Pussy’ on the Marketplace (price L$0).
Further research showed there was a male equivalent, the Sex & Spice Cock, also priced at L$0.
Let’s begin with the male version, and see how it performs (after a manner of speaking…I didn’t test drive it, hahaha! 🙂 )
I was, however hugely impressed by what you get for your L$0!
Firstly, there are options for circumcised and uncut looks.
I have to say that the designer’s understanding of what an uncut penis looks like puts some other genital designers to shame. This is an excellent representation of the uncut, flaccid penis.
Top row (above): flaccid uncut, flaccid cut, semi-erect and erect representations. There are no intermediate options for states of erection other than flaccid, semi and fully erect.
Bottom row (above) : wearing a condom -an option to this penis that also steals a march on other genitalia designers, urinating and orgasming. The urine stream and semen streams are, well, a bit over the top, but they are damned small issues to take up with what is an excellent product. Why are some SL male avatars still wandering around with oversized, badly coloured cocks when this is available for free?
Let us move onto the female equivalents of all of this above.
Firstly, there’s the same ‘panties down’ clothing, on the Marketplace, that we sourced for the male. This is also a demo version, but I have to say that we didn’t actually find any sort of markings for ‘demo’ on the panties (the male version carried a ‘demo’ box over the avi’s head).
Utilising the same lavatory poses, it was possible to replicate the act of a female taking a pee in Second Life fairly realistically.
Our model also added the Sex & Spice Pussy (see the link above) which have her a peeing animation. She also added an outdoors photo of her avi taking a pee behind a tree (yes, ladies, there’s hardly one of us alive who’ve not had that experience at least once or twice in our lives!).

(L-R: The pussy close up, the urination animation (as with the male version, the urine stream is somewhat overdone, but at L$0, who’s complaining?), the pussy with a piercing -which comes as part of the package, this isn’t a separately purchased add-on). On these first three photos I asked our model not to colour the pussy to match her skin tone, for purposes of clarity. In the final pic the pussy is colour matched to the model’s skin).
As with an understanding of the foreskin in the male version, the female version -and this is unique to my understanding- also understands that not all pussies look the same. For some ladies, it’s nothing but a smooth slit, while others will understand that there are some differences, as unique as we are.
An implicit understanding that the labia may protrude more on some women more than others is good to see.
These free genitalia for male and female are excellent. I note that the female version allows for the taking of a contraceptive pill, thus to avoid pregnancy, and if two avatars wearing ‘Sex & Spice’ genitals don’t use contraception (either the condom for males, or pill for females) ‘you could get pregnant’, is the warning.
Our models also ‘test drove’ the products, if you see what I mean. I have been sent photos of the respective male and female products in use (with a condom being used) but this really isn’t part of SL-FKK’s remit, so I won’t be publishing those. I’m told that, upon ejaculation, the male part immediately returns to its flaccid state and the condom being worn disappears.
Exceptionally thorough product, then, and amazing when one considers that both are free. While the sexual element of the products isn’t our remit, the realistic nature of them naturally interests us, and in many ways they outperform, in terms of realism, some genital products costing several hundred linden dollars.
