George Smiley and April Hutchinson on tumblr…inspiring Harry Leistone and Diane Toxx on SLN?

I sincerely hope I’m not infringing copyright here…but I do love this photograph…



…which is a self-portrait of George Smiley and April Hutchinson from George’s tumblr presence. See? Not all tumblr sites are the same, despite my comments here.

As others appear to have reblogged George’s work without there being any apparent copyright infringement, I hope we’re OK with it…but if George or anyone representing him wishes to have the post taken down I will, of course, comply immediately and offer my sincere apologies for infringement of copyright.

What attracts me to the photo is that both are armed with cameras and I thought…..Harry?…Diane?…..would you like to replicate this in an SL setting? 🙂


No d***s please, we’re a naturist site (?!?!)

I don’t, as a rule, visit naturist web sites unless for research or educational purposes. The purpose might be to see what a camping pitch costs per night, for example. But there are occasions when I either click-through to find a site that’s objectionable and not very ‘genuinely naturist’ in intent, or Harry will send me a photo, a graphic, or something else that he thinks might suit our purposes.

I was slightly shocked and appalled, therefore, to click through to a tumblr website recently which the owner had named in such a way that it appeared ‘genuinely naturist’, but there was a banner along the top which said he wouldn’t be showing any photographs in which ‘dicks’ were shown. (It’s safe to say the owner is certainly male).


A penis and testicles (or, strictly speaking, the owners of such items) form a good 50% of naturism. Possibly more than 50%, given that it’s harder to attract women to the naturist lifestyle.

According to some tumblr site owners, this is the sort of real life scene you aren’t going to witness on their sites.

So if you’re going to run a naturist website that is properly, genuinely naturist, then it’s only fair that presenting a balanced view of the lifestyle will and should include ‘dicks’. Alternatively, don’t present it as ‘genuinely naturist’, with a naturist themed name, and preferably name it as ‘naked women who may be on a beach’. Because that’s what is being offered.

Better to heavily crop a photo to keep ‘dicks’ out of the photo, because that really offers a true reflection on the naturist lifestyle….yes?

Honestly, this makes me as mad as those SL sim owners who will advertise their location as ‘naturist’ or ‘nudist’ and when you teleport into it you find that it’s little more than a cybersex sim with outlandishly sized penises and breasts displayed everywhere. And while cybersex is something I’ve never indulged in, I can just imagine the ‘erotic’ nature of the conversations, a series of monosyllabic grunts accompanying simulated, cartoon sex.

Another thing…these sort of real life tumblr site owners seem to then undermine their own argument if it’s a real life photograph of a girl performing oral sex. Maybe some tumblr site owners simply aren’t that smart…

Whether you’re running an SL ‘nudist’ sim, or running a ‘nudist’ tumblr site, you fellas need to get your act together.
