C

upid’s got her arrows ready! Here’s the scenario: Boy meets girl, boy likes girl, boy kisses girl, boy falls in love with girl, boy marries girl and they live happily ever after… the end. It’s classic fairy tale story, and frankly there are many who dream of having it. But too often the scenario changes to boy marries girl, one treats the other terribly, they don’t get along anymore, divorce and repeat. The pressure at Valentine’s Day is very high, and without being careful it’s very easy to force things to happen. Cupid’s arrow can be very tricky. Here are some tell-tale signs that you should pull out the arrow and walk away:


1. IT’S ALL ABOUT SEXY TIMES.

TOO

SEXY

MAGAZINE

Take a step back and think about the relationship you have with your new found lover. How much time do you take getting to know one another? How often are you jumping on a poseball on a sex bed? If you have spent more time getting to know each other’s body movements and less time getting to know each other’s personalities, then this is a sign you might want to cool it.

2. THE MORE YOU GET TO KNOW THEM, THE LESS ATTRACTED YOU ARE. Don’t force things to happen. Just because someone has shown interest in you doesn’t mean you should be jumping into a long-term relationship. If you have gotten to know this new interest and you are finding things that aren’t making you happy it may be time for you to call it quits. 21


3. THERE IS NO SIZZLE… NO SPARK Don’t settle for love in a best friend, you’ve got to have fire down there! Passion! While sex is not the most important thing, and as said in tip one should not consume your entire relationship, it also does play an important role in an intimate relationship. If you aren’t satisfied or your partner isn’t it’s time for a re-evaluation.

4. THEY OWN A “JAR OF HEARTS” While the song may be a bit cheesy and has been way over-played, someone with a past history of getting people to fall for them and then breaking up with them is bad news. You don’t want to end up another heart in their jar. Be careful and guard your heart.

5. THE MORE YOU GET TO KNOW THEM, THE LESS ATTRACTED YOU ARE. Don’t force things to happen. Just because someone has shown interest in you doesn’t mean you should be jumping into a long-term relationship. If you have gotten to know this new interest and you are finding things that aren’t making you happy it may be time for you to call it quits.

6. NO COMMON GROUND. Don’t change for someone. If you don’t have common ground, it’s not going to work out. You will live your life unhappy and unsatisfied if you try to make it work. Finding someone who shares your zest for life and your passions is important. While you don’t have to have EVERYTHING in common, you need enough common ground where you can enjoy doing things together!

Tonight is the night, there is no turning back, and you don’t want to. Moving to the bed you feel almost intoxicated from the anticipation.

We won’t even talk about the person who has no clue what menu their four year old bed contains because they will spend five minutes ball hopping looking for that ‘perfect’ animation that is now hopelessly outdated. So to make those nights special you need a bed that rocks. Too Sexy has searched high and low and picked four stores that sizzle when it comes to sex. 45

on a ball….any ball… and go at it. At this point you might find yourself reading a book in and typing “oh yes Baby” every few minutes. If your partner is of that mind then they won’t ow the difference anyway. Then there is the partner that has to have an animation for every single emote and they spend the night dragging you through a mass of previously hidden poseballs that suddenly light up the room in a neon sea of pink and blue. You end the night exhausted and frustrated.

[PRIME FURNITURE]

PRIME has some of the most realistic animations that there are in SL and is one of the few that have a vampire specific menu. Reven Rosca says, “ I started with general furniture and moved on to beds, or bedrooms because that’s where I had the best design ideas. And from there, the snowball started to roll.” We are glad she did because Prime Furniture won’t let you down – literally. The store consists of two sims, one for general merchandise and the other is adult oriented where you can try the furniture for yourself and experience the excellence of the animations and the wide variety of menus.

The new Digital Dreams has gorgeous beds with all new designs and menus, and the store has expanded and now has a wide variety of BDSM and Vampire furniture. Digital Dreams also has a new section just for Gorean roleplay! Don’t miss the outdoor section and one of my favorites for the exhibitionist in you, the *DD* Cuddle & Sex Rug in the Forest.

I

t was time to continue on in my quest to become a runway model after the nightmare of the last class when ruth insisted on attending with me, my computer was unhappy with me and well, I just was ill prepared.

TOO

SEXY

MAGAZINE

We lined up according to the teacher’s instructions and my mind started to race. Runway? What’s a runway? Why am I dressed like this? What did she say do? Go straight or left or right? Why am I walking in a place where planes land? I must be insane. I’m not ready for this, what am I doing and what was I thinking? How come all these other people are walking and I want to run the other way? NOOO, it’s my turn. OMG, my feet are moving! Don’t go out the door, feet, no stop that! Don’t go out there! Am I still alive, because I’m not breathing? Ut oh, I’m going to hurl on the runway. If avatars could pass out, I’d have hit the floor with a thud. Better yet, I’d have walked right on out the door and kept going.

69


Learning something new isn’t always pleasant. Growth often comes with a price to pay even in Second Life. It isn’t the things that come easy that makes us who we are; it’s what we do when faced with adversity. Yada, yada, yada right? While it sounds trite, it’s true. During this time I had met a girl who has become a close friend and confidant and I might have given up were it not for her. She inspired me to keep trying and encouraged me endlessly. One of her suggestions was to take a class at a different school in addition to the one I was attending. While it sounded insane, I do trust her, so off I went. The school that my friend suggested was amazing! The instructors were wonderful and the classes informative and interesting. She was right and it was an opportunity that I am glad I didn’t pass up. While the curriculum was essentially the same, I learned a great deal because of the different focus within the subject.


TOO

SEXY

MAGAZINE

Most of the models in the fashion industry do attend more than one school actually. Each one has its own personality, with some being more intense than others. That however doesn’t mean the less intense academies produce less or expect less. It is just the manner in which the classes are presented. In this setting my confidence soared, as well as gaining more knowledge. I wasn’t as intimidated by the all of the various facets of the industry as I had been. Well until the day came that I had to face that runway yet again. I could almost hear the music that plays when a gun battle is about to start in an old western. I stared the runway down, my hand itching to pull that trigger (okay it was a mouse but…come on this is 2012 and not the OK Corral). The heat beat down on my body as my wide brimmed Stetson shielded the sun from my eyes (okay it was a Baboa hat…let me live in my delusions). I stepped out on the runway and smiled. At that moment I owned it and I knew from that point on I’d never hurl on the runway again, or take out the front

row, or land in water. Truth is, I ended up finishing both classes at about the same time. Did I make any mistakes after that pivotal moment? Sure I have. Did I immediately know what I had done wrong, but more importantly how to prevent it in the future? You bet I do. I will continue making mistakes and using them to improve. I will practice and learn to be the best that I can be – then I will push myself to get better again. I may have been an unlikely runway model, but now? Now I stand with pride as a runway model, and my feet barely wobble on my stilettos!

TOO SEXY: WHAT PROMPTED YOU TO JOIN SECOND LIFE, AND TO STAY? GEMINI GALATEA: I’ve been a member of virtual worlds since 1996, starting with a 2D world called ‘Worldsaway’, then Seducity in 2003 and I heard about Second Life there. I joined SL in May 2004 along with my RL husband and a few friends from Seducity, most of whom I’m still in touch with. TOO SEXY: HOW DID YOU BECOME INVOLVED WITH ALPHAMALE AND BLACKLACE? GEMINI: I was helping to run a model agency in 2007 and one of the co-owners introduced me to Mariska and Yelmer. We got to know each other over a couple of months and I started working for them as a Customer Service Representative. When their CMO left SL, I was offered the job. It is a great job, we have an amazing team of people behind both brands who are totally customer focused, we all work well together to support both stores plus the sister stores of Lil’Lace and Blacklace Beauty and have a lot of fun in the process. TOO SEXY: DID YOU INTEND TO BECOME A CREATOR IN YOUR OWN RIGHT FROM THE BEGINNING, OR DID THAT GROW FROM A NEED OR DESIRE? GEMINI: I had no intention whatsoever of creating anything beyond making shapes, which I’d done pretty much since I joined SL. I originally collaborated in 2005-2006 with sachi Vixen of Adam n Eve who provided skins, Six Kennedy of Gurl 6 who provided hair and Jade Jensen of Jaded Visions who provided outfits, and we were the first to sell complete avatars.


TOO

SEXY

MAGAZINE

I’d always been interested in the textures side of SL design, but didn’t really have much patience to learn Photoshop. Then I met Mariska who has helped me and taught me so, so much about Photoshop and making textures. I decided to do makeups because I couldn’t find what I wanted at the time, which was eyeshadow and lashes on one layer, so I decided to try to make them myself. I bought a couple of templates, and although some people look down their noses at creators who use templates, they really are a great way to learn about how things fit on the avatar mesh - and began to experiment. It snowballed from there really. I’ve also progressed into making Zooby baby clothing along with a friend, which is great fun.

83

TOO SEXY: WHAT ARE YOUR FUTURE PLANS FOR BLACKLACE BEAUTY? GEMINI: I don’t really have a structured plan as such. I make whatever I feel like making at the time. I would like to do more shapes though, they’ve fallen by the wayside a bit lately as I’ve so much fun making makeup! TOO SEXY: WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THE GREATEST IMPACT OF TATTOO LAYERS IN SL? GEMINI: Oh the possibities are endless, not only for beauty cosmetics but for all kinds of role-play tattoos, injuries, scars etc. I think tattoo layers, and multiple layers have revolutionised avatar appearance. We’ve come a long way from the default skin with a makeup layer! TOO SEXY: WHAT SL DESIGNERS DO YOU ADMIRE AND WHY? GEMINI: The designer I admire most in SL is Mariska, not only is she a fabulous designer who really does put her customers first, but she has the skill, drive and motivation to keep Blacklace at the very top of the game, and she is the most generous person I know. She has spent hours and hours helping me with my creations, not to mention encouraging me to market them under the Blacklace brand. I would like to take this opportunity to thank her publicly for everything she does.

Here are some ideas to jump-start your own creativity and surprise your love with the thoughtful and romantic evening you can spend together.

89

One way to get some privacy if you happen to have neighbors in your area is to use the sky as a place to rez a little temporary place to be alone. A quickly placed prim in the air can be decorated according to your prim budget and tastes, but even with just a meager number of available prims you can put a fireplace on the platform and experiment with light settings to get just the ambiance you want. Rez a set of dance poseballs, romantic or sexy and you have a place to hold your honey close and dance the night away as you whisper sweet nothings in front of the firelight. For a sexy and teasing dance try Dont cha by Dancing Lemon from There In Spirit or TIS. There are also many very sensual dances at Sweet Animations, try out slow numbers 5, 6 and 7 for something steamy. More traditional or formal options could include anything from the Bits and Bobs slowdance series.

PATRON IS HERE SL URL - PATRON (48,245,30) If your prim allowance is not too limited, adding more elaborate decor to the sky platform or to your land can surprise your date and make the atmosphere even more romantic. You could create an outdoor meadow feel using Hearts Grass from Alirium Gardens. This grass is resizable and the hearts are a subtle but romantic touch. For a lovely mix of flowers, try the gothic swamp roses from Heart Garden Center to add touches of red to your tableau and you can create a colorful meadow atmosphere. The Lovers Picnic set from Instinct can be rezzed beneath a tree and your evening can be filled with cuddles and toasts over a glass of wine. For the tree, try the Heart’s Desire by Botanical with heart shaped red leaves, heart particles that fall gently and a carved heart in the trunk that is scripted to allow your own message to be put there.

There was a little network of us who knew where the best paid camping spots were and we would TP each other in to ‘keep them warm’ and be able to get them back when we logged in later. I met so many great people from all over the world and many of them are still my friends today. WHAT CAN YOU BE FOUND DOING MOST OFTEN IN SL WHEN YOU’RE NOT MODELING? Attending live music shows! I go to dozens of shows each month. There is a wealth of musical talent in Second Life and the artists here are generous to play for SL pay. The music scene here is really impressive! WHAT’S YOUR DEEPEST DARKEST SECRET IN SL? THE ONE THING THAT MAKES YOU CRINGE AND SAY “OMG I CANT BELIEVE I __________.” OMG! I can’t believe I used to look like that! It is probably not much of a secret, but my original attempts at making my own shape resulted in a trainwreck of a body. I was clumsy with the concept of avatar design and the proportions were horrifying. I paid the most attention to the face and that is why I was able to start modeling, but the body was truly awful. Luckily we are able to be in a state of constant evolution here and I can only hope that five years from now I don’t feel that same way about my current look! 115

efore my niece was even born she had me wrapped around her little finger. I look into her face and know of many of the things she will go through in her hopefully charmed life. Even at best she will anguish over everything from school yard crushes and scraped knees to bad hair days and which new pair of jeans to wear on the first day of school.

We all go through that, or at least we females do. Every year brings a new search for “the” pair of jeans. The ones with the perfect fit that would make J-Lo gnash her teeth in envy. The jeans that are such perfection that the clouds part and the angels sing when you slide them up and fasten the button. All females, from infancy up, are in a constant search for the Holy Grail of jeans. You would think that in Second Life where everything fits and that a great derriere is just a few numbers away on the right sliders that finding jeans wouldn’t be an issue, but alas, it would seem that the search for the perfect pixel jeans is just as never ending as the search in real life. One of the first things I started looking for upon my initial arrival in SL was jeans and after four years, I am still looking for “that” pair. Oh there have been dalliances with a few pair here and there that lasted beyond a few ‘dates’ but nothing that I would commit to for any real length of time. Come to think of it some of my relationships with jeans have lasted longer than some of my SL romances. Ah well, that’s another column. At last count I had well over two hundred pairs. I once made that observation in an offhand manner to friends and the reaction of some people led me to believe that my obsession with pixelated denim might be odd. I find it hard to believe that everybody

doesn’t search high and low for jeans and buy them en masse. I have high cut jeans, low cut jeans, ripped jeans, skinny jeans, boyfriend jeans and jeans that leave the hoo-ha exposed. There are patterned jeans and jeans in every color you can think of. There are Capri jeans, three quarter jeans, jeans would make the Pope proud and jeans that would make the people in the red light district blush. I do have some jeans though that I always return to occasionally, ones that always make me look good and feel good and seem to make my rear a little perkier and bouncier without the aid of avatar physics. No matter how many pairs I own, my Lelutka Caprica jeans have my heart. I just wish they came in more colors. Make them in fifty colors and I will get a bank loan if need be and buy them all! I still take out my Armidi Grace jeans and caress them from time to time. They may be older but they are just getting better! I could go on and on but those are two of my favorites, but with mesh coming on well, my head may be turned by something new and shiny. If mesh jeans fit like Maitreya’s leather leggings, I’m going to have to realign my loyalties some I’m afraid. I do know one thing and that’s that my addictive personality has obviously reared its ugly head. I suppose there may come a day that I stand in front of a podium and utter those famous words “Hello, I my name is [censored] and I am addicted to jeans.”

thought for this issue I’d have a look at suits in Second Life and present three of my favourites that I like to wear, and I also have three new skins to show as well.

I

For suits in Second Life, personally I like them to come with as many options and layers as possible. This enables me to mix and match the items and wear which parts I want. In the past I’ve often worn different suits together, jacket from one set, shirt from another and so on. There’s a whole wealth of stores in Second Life that sell suits for every occasion. And just a search on marketplace can be overwhelming with the hundreds of pages it presents. So here I present my three favourite suits that for me tick all the boxes and the look gorgeous.


he first suit is from Aoharu and is an elegant black suit that comes with a lot of layers so that you can mix up the different items. The skin I’m wearing is a new release from Vaya Con Dios and called ‘Rafael’ that comes in eight different tones.

he second suit is from Gabriel, and whilst it doesn’t have as many options as the first one, it’s a personal favourite of mine. The latest releases from Gabriel, including their new winter collection, are worth taking a look at if you haven’t done so already. It’s a great collection and one of my favourites that they have released. The skin I’m wearing is new release from Tableau Vivant called ‘Noctis’ and comes in fifteen tones.

SKIN: NOCTIS TONE 04 FROM TABLEAU VIVANT HAIR: ORLANDO IN LIGHT BROWN FROM RAW HOUSE SUIT: THREE PIECE SUIT IN GRAY FROM GABRIEL SHOES: HOORENBEEK


he third outfit is a mix of different items. You don’t always have to follow the conventional rules of wearing a full suit. It features some items from a store called Iruco that has some great clothing and hair for men that is definitely worth checking out. First time I came across it I bought loads of items and really love the style there. The skin is the latest release from Birth called ‘Thor’ and I’m really loving the skins from Birth and usually end up buying a fatpack from there in whatever tone I like.

nventory has a nasty habit of building up and before you know it, you’re hitting 50,000 items when last month you only had 30,000 and have no idea how you got there, where anything is, or even what half the items are. Its a new year, so it’s time to clean up and clear out the rubble and start off fresh for 2012.

167

1. ASSE SSMENT. The first step to cleaning up your inventory is to take some time to assess what you have, what you need and how to deal with it. Look at the age of your items. Do you still have a vast collection of hairs and skins from your noob days that are completely outdated now? Is your collection of poses the generic freebies from 2007? Do your shoes and jewellry still have bling? Take the time to look through everything and ask yourself do you really really need everything you have?

169


2. ACT ION. It’s now time to sort, compile and edit your inventory. It’s time to weed out the things you no longer need from the things you just can’t live without. Try things on. Do you still love them as much now as you did when you first bought them, are they past their due date or has your style completely changed? It’s hard giving things up, which is why most of us have out of control inventories. We have attachments to things - the dress we wore for a special occasion, your first skin etc. For the things you just can’t bring yourself to give up - box them up! For the rest - delete delete delete!

3. ORGANI SE. When you have decided on what you are keeping, create folders to keep everything in order. You can then create subfolders and even sub-subfolders to keep everything in order. eg : Skins - Skin Designer - Skin Name - Skin Tone or Hair - Hair Store - Colour - Style

Decide what works for you and take the time to sort your inventory into order. Once you have decided on your system, it’s time to start filing everything away, boxing it up or deleting it forever. It will save you time and sanity when you are looking for something specific.

171


No-one says you have to dump the past, you just need to find a way to keep it under control or else it will take over. And look at the bright side - think of all the empty space you can go out and fill up with shiny new stuff!

yrone had been busy. So busy in fact that he knew he had been neglecting his long-time partner and love of his SLife, Kimberly. So today when he logged in, he knew right away that he was going to do the apology thing and do his best to be with her. She was amazing, beautiful, sexy, smart, funny, you know, the total package.

The best thing about their relationship was the one thing he knew for sure… the thing he knew he had more than anything with her… trust. She had told him a few weeks ago during their last fight that she would break up with him before she would do anything to betray his trust. She loved him and respected him, and he knew it with full confidence. Logging on to SL, Tyrone did what he always did. He cleared his messages, responded to some hello’s from a few friends, scrolled through his friends list to see who was on – no Kimberly just yet. “Good, I’ll surprise her,” he thought aloud. He walked along to their bedroom. looking at the pictures on the wall of the two of them on dates. “Man these pics are from a long time ago,” Ty thought aloud. “We need some new pictures. Maybe we can take some today.” Just as he was walking into the bedroom her name popped up as online and there in the room was Kimberly’s cloud rezzing in, right by the bed. Tyrone thought it was a little strange that she would log in there, but shook it off. “Hey baby,” he said. “Surprise!” Kimberly couldn’t believe that he would log on the one time she forgot to change her location after sleeping with Jeffery. She and Jeffery had been seeing each other for three weeks now without getting caught and the sex was hot, she wasn’t


ready to give it up. Jeffery had reminded her what it felt like to make passionate love. He reminded her what it felt like to be touched, stroked, kissed. She wasn’t ready to let it go. With Tyrone gone so much, Kimberly had fallen out of love with him and it was time to face the facts, but she wasn’t ready for Ty to be out of her life.

“Oh… Hey baby,” she said in reply. “You’re on! I’ve been wondering if I still had a partner, lol.” Tyrone noticed how beautiful she was, her red hair flowing down her bare shoulders. It looked like Valentine’s Day in the room as she stood next to the rezzed pink pose ball hovering above the bed. “Wait, what?? Why are the poseballs for the bed rezzed?” Tyrone asked aloud before he could process anything. “You logged in by the bed too. What’s going on Kim?”

But she knew it was too late. Here Ty was and she’s logging in by the bed. He was going to know something was up.

MAGAZINE SEXY TOO

MOSTLY A’S: “DO YOU LIKE ME?” If you picked mostly A’s, you’re into dating, but long-term love isn’t really on your radar. Valentine’s Day is an excuse for you to go out, have dinner, maybe eat a few chocolates, but you’re not really in it for jewelry and romance just yet. Maybe that’s in your future, but for now, you’re comfortable just dating. 191


MOSTLY B’S: “I LOVE YOU.” Those of you who picked Mostly B’s love the day of love! It’s one of your favorite holidays because of the romance in the atmosphere and the attention you get from your loved one. What you need to realize is, this is the feeling you should have with your significant other everyday, not just save it for one day of the year.


MAGAZINE SEXY TOO

MOSTLY C’S: “LOVE TO HATE.” You’re a hater when it comes to Valentine’s Day! Not only do you loathe the fact that everyone is happily taken or dating around you, but you feel like everyone is rubbing the fact that you are single in your face. Maybe you need to focus more on making yourself happy and being comfortable with who you are and stop worrying so much about being with someone. Your day will come. Spend time with friends on V-Day! 193


MOSTLY D’S: “FRIENDS FOREVER” Valentine’s Day doesn’t bother you one way or another. You don’t mind being single, in fact you embrace it. You spend time making yourself and others feel happy and it doesn’t matter if you’re with someone or not, it’s just another day for you to love life and your friends! Keep it up… you’ve found true happiness.
