What is Second Life

What is the point writing about Second Life since we all live and breathe inside it, experience and enjoy it, each and every one of us with our own individual preferred way.
You are probably right.
What is the additional information I can convey to you that you already don’t know it? Each and every one of us has its own unique way to be part of this world, acting and performing to our best liking. Each and every one of us has already formed a specific opinion about Second Life and the unlimited choices offered.
But now is my turn to ask you this: judging from your own in-world experience and preferences that you have and/or gained inside this virtual reality, how much you really do know about Second Life?
Living inside a virtual dream or just having fun in a virtual reality?
I wonder what could be a definition of Second Life:
Evolution, Revolution, a Dating Site, just an Addictive Game, or?

We all started Second Life adopting a nerdy looking pre-made avatar (Newbie as it is habitually called), fascinated and captivated by this three-dimensional version of virtual reality, eager to discover what this world has to offer. We all realized, from our first steps into this digital space that Second Life offers limitless choices as to how you want your character to look like. So here comes the first dilemma. Do I really want to improve “myself”, how do I wish to look like and how much this will actually cost me. First thoughts on how much to spend in favor of a virtual avatar start messing up our minds. However the visual element and the improvement of it, is important in Second Life, at least to the majority of people. We can buy outfits to dress our avatars provocatively, or “skins” to make us appear sexy nude. Endless choices of shopping opportunities are there, from skins, shapes, eyes, hair, feet, genitals to clothes and outfits. Long spending hours of continuous search to create an avatar the way we like it. Damn do I look good?

No matter if you chose to be a vamp, a wolf, an elf, a dragon or drag queen, a fairy, or just human, we all invested time and linden (no matter how much) to become exceptional to our own eyes and used our own unique imagination to accomplish that. Default avatars have no genitalia, so users need to buy them. Second Life offers you free access to build your avatar but come on … you can get whatever you want if you give yourself time, look carefully and choose what you like best.

OK avatar is ready and set to go so what is next?
What is the most frequent word, new (not only) users test on the search tab, when they start Second Life? … is it perhaps … “SEX” …

You can do anything in Second Life: Go parachuting, go surfing, build a majestic building, fight vampires OR you can have sex. The virtual world is a haven where people can fulfill their sexual fantasies by pretending to be the opposite sex, experimenting with homosexuality, owning a harem of sex slaves (who are themselves fulfilling their fantasies by role-playing as sex slaves), and lots more.
