CLUB FRICTION: SL'S HOTTEST ADULT ENTERTAINMENT VENUE – JOSH (THOMAS1 BELLIC) REPORTING


My guest today is Zeehra Cordeaux, owner and operator of Friction, SL’s hottest and most unique Adult entertainment club. Friction caters to the most discerning adults in a fun and engaging atmosphere.  Guests initially come to Friction as customers, but find that after only a couple of visits, they leave as family.  When I first arrived at Friction and started exploring the many rooms and spaces there, I could tell this was NOT your average Adult club. Friction has accommodations for both text-based and voice-based interactions, as well as state-of-the-art animations in a comfortable and relaxed environment.  I caught up with Zeehra while she was tending bar.  She still had a few minutes before the anticipated afternoon rush of patrons, so we sat comfortably as I asked her a few questions…


Josh (Thomas1 Bellic) JB:      So tell me, Zeehra? What sets FRICTION apart from the many other adult clubs out there?

Zeehra Cordeaux (ZC):   - Friction is an adult entertainment club and what makes it so special is the welcoming, professional vibe that our guests feel when they enter our premises. We pride ourselves in maintaining the social aspect of Friction as well as the adult areas. Our staff are very carefully hand-picked to fit into our theme and our vision which is extremely important to us. Friction is designed to provide a "safe place" or an extra home away from home, so to speak, a family for both our staff and our guests. We often hear that people come to us for the strippers but they stay for the vibe which is why we have the slogan "...can you feel it?".

JB:    Where did you get the idea for FRICTION? Is there some history here?

ZC:   - It's a bit of a bizarre story really. Before Friction came to be I was working at a few other clubs for a while and there was one in particular that ended up giving me the nudge that I needed to start planning my own club. During the interview to get hired, I was told that I didn't have to do anything that I wasn't comfortable with doing.  However, AFTER I was hired, I was pressured and expected to do things against my will.  I brought this up with the management and I got the response that "Oh no, you DO have to do THAT. Otherwise, I don't think you are even fit to work in this business". Needless to say, I then quit and decided to open up my own place and shape it into what Friction is today. A safe place for everyone to enjoy without punishments or forced anything, where we can always say no without question if we feel uncomfortable in any way.

JB:    How big a staff do you maintain here, and who are the true movers and shakers that keep FRICTION up and running, so to speak?

ZC   -At the moment we have roughly 40 employees working for us. We hire both males and females which also means that we cater to everyone’s needs and desires. There is a lot of work involved in running a business in Second Life and quite frankly, we wouldn't have been able to do it to the extent that we have if it wasn't for our wonderful staff. They are the hearts and souls of Friction and the ones that are carrying out our vision and they do it perfectly. We are very proud of each and every one of them and we feel so privileged that they have chosen us as their employers. We all work together as a team with a "one for all and all for one" kind of mindset.



 JB:    As I was touring your extensive facilities the other night, I saw a couple of things I didn’t quite understand. What is a “miepon”?  Also, you have an area dedicated to  “Textopia?  What is that all about?

ZC:   - Miepons are a really fun addition to any club really. They are little tokens that one can purchase from so-called miepon machines that contain an action of some sort. These tokens can be handed over to the dancers as they are on stage in order to have them perform the action. It can be any kind of action really, anything from sounding like a mating turtle for 30 seconds to a 2-minute lovense control link. Of course, our dancers can choose to say no if they don't want to perform said action but that very rarely happens as they are so much fun. People really enjoy them.

- The place you visited was temporarily named "Textopia" but was renamed the "TexXxt Club". This is an area that caters to text roleplay only and will bypass anything that has to do with voice. We wanted an area for those who enjoy Second Life how it used to be before the voice option took over extensively.

JB:    I see you have a fairly well-stocked “Gift Shop” as well, for purchasing those special presents for yourself or those “hard to buy for” folks on your gift list.  How’s business there? 

ZC:   - The "Gift Shop" is quite a success actually. It contains many fun things that people previously didn't realize that they needed, much like most other material things in life, such as attachments that allow you to interact with others in fun or naughty ways, furniture, and some HUD's like Stepford Wife Implant, and Mama Alpha. We are big supporters of our affiliates in the shop and we own many of their items ourselves which is why we can wholeheartedly recommend them to others.



JB:    What types of Events do you have here? 

ZC:   - We currently have three weekly events that run for the whole day. There is Wicked Wednesday where all our menu services are 50% off. We also have something called Fuzzy Friday which is a fairly new and fun one. This is where all the staff that aims to work that day dress up as furries or nekos, both for a bit of a change in scenery but also to show some extra appreciation to the lovely furry guests that visit us. Last but not least we have SUN-Day Fun-Day where we are operating from our beach. It's almost like going on holiday once a week to enjoy some sun and a tropical environment. On Sundays, we are all down at the beach instead of up in the clubs. Another important thing to add is that all our events run for 24 hours to make sure that everyone can part-take no matter which time zone they are in. Additionally, we host themed events when people want to celebrate their rezz-days or birthdays as well as being available to cater to requested events that someone might want to see at Friction.

JB:    I saw you have plenty of games and play areas…both in the Arcade…and in the Dungeon.   What are some of the other areas that guests might enjoy during a visit to FRICTION?

ZC:   - In the Arcade one can enjoy many different and classic video games such as Pac-Man and Mortal Kombat. We also have mud-wrestling, Greedy Fruit slot machines, Buzz Roulette, and a section for gaming with Lovense. 

- We have three "playrooms", all in different styles, such as the dungeon that you saw. These rooms are for private time between guests and staff and contain many fun things to enjoy.

- We have a Lounge where people can sit around and chat, cuddle, get to know each other, or play games such as Cheesy and Hand & Foot. It's a very casual and relaxing area and one of the things that Friction was likely first with implementing.

- We have three different clubs. The Red Club where the vocal ladies dance, the Blue Club where the vocal gentlemen dance, and a new Purple Club which is for those who write only.

- Another fun area is The Secret Key which is for our Elite VIPs only. An area where they can hang out and get to know the staff away from the rest of the club.

- Last but not least we have an amazing nude beach which is a roleplay/fun area for everyone to enjoy freely. It contains several different games such as playable Volley-Ball and coconut-cracking. There are many secluded areas where one could enjoy a nice,  romantic date with a loved one, or a group of friends. There is also a stage down there for the one day every week that we utilize the beach for work, which is Sunday as I mentioned before.



JB:    How might someone learn “What’s Happening at FRICTION?”

ZC:   - The best way to stay up to date with any happenings that involve Friction would be to join our Discord server. It is free to join, however, you need to become part of our free VIP group in Second Life in order to be able to see all the different channels in Discord.

JB:    Is there anything else you would like to share with our SL Enquirer Readers?

ZC:   - I would like to take a moment to shed some light on a very honorable organization called Echovets. Friction has recently become supporter of this organization which is a whole sim made up for war veterans that are in need of support in any way. They exist in "the real world" as well which is what this Second Life group is based on. It is a place for veterans to meet up and support and comfort each other without actually meeting up. A safe haven where they can be themselves and get help with any issues that are lingering after being stationed in a war zone. Take a moment to look them up, show them some support, or even drop them a little donation. They are worth it.



Soooo…there you have it, Folks.  For the Best in Adult Entertainment to be found anywhere on the Grid, hop on over to Friction.  You’ll be glad you did.  And when you do, tell ‘em Josh sent ya,

Be there! Aloha

JB
