It's all about the money - Lacy Muircastle reporting...


Earlier this week my colleague JoyMell reported on the escort and prostitution scene in Second Life and I was suffering from ‘fomo’.  Nah not really.  A friend of mine, who just so happens to be a prostitute is celebrating nine years in Second Life making her one of a select group of veteran residents.

In real life, Kathrine resides on the East Coast of the USA.  A German female friend of hers introduced her to SL and here she is nine years later. In RL she is a test team leader for an R & D company and she loves her garden. She said “SL is a stress reliever for me, let's say a stress diversion. I love to dance and have learnt how to design and create clothes.”

She took to exploring with vigour and within three days she had a job as a stripper.  The lady who owned the strip club took Kathrine under her wing and so her journey began in earnest.  As far as she was concerned it was job just like everyone else’s.  She had to show up, dance which she enjoyed anyway, and get paid for doing so.

I asked the question I’m sure she’s been asked any number of times in her time in SL, that being what made her want to be a prostitute in SL.  In a nutshell it’s all about the money…

Kathrine was the number one dancer at A Touch of Sin from 2009 to the end of 2010.  To say that she made significant money during that time would be an understatement. I mean who would sniff at 450 000 L$?  All from tips.  But then the economy in the USA went to pieces.  She stopped stripping and creating clothing and decided to become a prostitute instead.  In less than a year she’d made 150 000 L$.  Clearly there is always money available for sex, virtual or otherwise.

Kathrine works out of the Streetwhores sim only.  She said “It’s the owners that make or break your ability to make money, same as in RL.”  She doesn’t have any daddy issues, ghosts of abuse or worse still financial hardship (in our society the embarrassment of being poor seems to eclipse all of life’s real, emotional, hard hitting issues) but she’s in this business because she wants to be.

Her current rate is "1000 L$ for 30 minutes or best offer."  She keeps all the money she makes.  Her only real cost is the rent of 150 L$ a week for her whore house apartment.

I asked her how she'd describe the connection she has with her customers.  She said “if they cannot emote, be friendly and talk about him.” 

I then asked her what she thought the biggest misconception about prostitution in SL is.  She said “It’s really just a business. In my case there is no RL physical interaction. So it becomes entertainment, like in a geisha house.”

Geisha are traditional Japanese female entertainers who act as hostesses and whose skills include performing various arts such as classical music, dance, games and conversation, mainly to entertain male customers.

Kathrine said she’d never fallen in love with any of her customers.  She has become good friends with some, but does not have a boyfriend.  She doesn’t do slavery, BDSM, freebies, webcam or voice.

She’d like to thank her friends from all around the world, for making her Second Life as enjoyable as it has been and she hopes to continue making many more friends in the years to come.

Congratulations on your ninth rezz day Kathrine and many more.

The Escort/Prostitute Scene in Second Life - Joymell Reporting…





Most people think that an escort and a prostitute are one and the same. You may think  it’s just semantics, but being an escort is a service provided by beautiful women and handsome men who are hired for entertainment purposes, and a prostitute is specifically more for fulfilling sexual desires .

There are many adult SIMS  in Second Life, with adult entertainment keeping traffic numbers up  in many parts of the virtual world. These sims generate resources which have inspired some of the most prominent businesses in SL.  They generate numerous jobs for residents such as DJs, dancers, hosts, escorts and prostitutes…

Many places offer what they term escort services, but they are really pimp services for prostitutes. The avatar who is interested in acquiring these kinds of services just simply go to the club, choose the escort (prostitute) they would like and they pay for his/her services. However, it is not cheap entertainment. On average, prices are approximately 2000 Linden $ for 20 minutes. Prices might vary depending on the club. Upgraded mesh avatars have higher escort (prostitute) rates due to their fine appearance.

The nagging question is, why if there are so many free opportunities for an avatar’s entertainment, why said avatar would choose to pay for an escort/prostitute service in Second Life? My curiosity made me investigate the prostitution scene in our virtual world.

I spoke to a couple of avatars who actually have been (or still are) customers of the clubs/agencies which offer these services.  I discovered that, in general, these people do not have much time to spend online in Second Life. Therefore, they do not have the time to flirt with others or maintain romantic conversations to try to win the other’s hearts for a few moments of virtual fun. On the other hand, an escort/prostitute is always available to negotiate and have fun with.

Another attraction that this kind of job has and which customers rely on, is that the escorts/prostitutes are very professional and experts in providing customers any kind of service related to sex and other more specialised ones such as BDSM, lesbian practices or any other kinky stuff or fantasy or fetish that can be thought of.  The only thing you’d need to do is ask the escort/prostitute and she or he will gladly do whatever to fulfill any of your needs without judging you for it.

Clubs have many customers who are willing to spend a lot of Lindens in exchange for quality services.

This is obviously not everyone’s cup of tea.  In talking to some of those who believe that adult services for fun aren’t their thing, I discovered that they believe that escorts/prostitutes are not working for their own fun but only to take advantage of other people’s weaknesses, desires and emotions in exchange for money.

Clearly these services on not for those looking for romance. This group of people are looking for virtual love, more like a fairy tale, and maybe something that could come true.

Regardless, the escort/prostitute girls and guys are very successful in this virtual speaking.  Many consider this practice as one of then ways to have fun without commitment, and that Second Life and clubs in it offer a variety of services to those interested in alternative employment opportunities.

As for inworld jobs, you can find a great deal for escort/prostitute service providers. The biggest deals are for sexy girls but also you can find jobs for men. In general, clubs ask for the following requirements:

- The avatar to be 30 days old or more
- The avatar must be over 18 years in real life
- The avatar should have a slink, mesh body, as well as hands and feet.
- The avatar must be voice verified (some clubs ask for it)

f you’re curious and want to know more about this and other adult content activities available, visit the Adult-rated areas (providing that you’re 18 or older.)

“I believe that sex is one of the most beautiful, natural, wholesome things that money can buy.” * Lacy Muircastle reporting ....


* Quote by Steve Martin

I support Lanai’s stance on rape completely as stated in her article “A Disgraceful Sub-culture in Second Life”.  In no world is rape acceptable in any form whatsoever. 



At the end of last year I conducted some interviews with a few sex workers in Second Life, with a view to highlighting yet another way in which SL emulates RL.  I am not the first to post interviews with those that sell sex on SL and nor will I be the last. I want to assure you that the issue of rape had not crossed my mind when I decided to do this piece and in the case of the ladies I spoke with, the sex involved is consensual at all times and rape is not an option. 


The premise for my article originally was - why would the men of SL pay for something they can get for free almost anywhere in SL?
