The Love Call of Cthulhu

SL’s Tentacult group reminds everyone that tentacles are sexy – for aliens, squid, and octopi

by Wendell Holmer


Stacks Kowalski stands in the eerie reaches of Yggdrasill, before a pair of ornate doors. She places a tentative finger on the ancient, carved wood.

The universe turns inside out.

She stares into the void between dimensions, where monsters gibber in madness and lust. Tentacles shoot out and bind her arms and legs. She writhes against a rippling wall of flesh, trying to kick free. Her legs can’t find any purchase in the slime, and her arms are tightly bound.

Her captor, the Lurker Beyond, whispers, “Terrible sounds of wet slime and sliding flesh attract your attention, making you look down. Your eyes grow wide as…[not safe for work tentacles continue after the jump...]…you watch an impossibly huge cock slide from its fleshy sheath.”


With “Cloverfield” ready to hit the theatres in about a week, Stax’s new boyfriend is first cousin to a movie star. The prerelease publicity hints that the movie monster is H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu. The author describes the creature as "the green, sticky spawn of the stars," with "flabby claws" and an "awful squid-head with writhing feelers." If that turns you on, you’re not alone.

“Tentacles are sexy,” declares SL’s Tentacult group. “Tentacles are the new furry. Join the future.” At Talena Giha a huge, pulpy space alien may select you for breeding. Yggdrasill abounds with lascivious plant life.

“I really, really like the animations because of the narrative attached, and because they build slowly,” Stacks says. “I find this so fucking hot…. Shhhhh…don’t tell anyone!

“It’s just so pervy,” she giggles. “The idea of putting anything up there… that doesn’t belong there. Being fucked by something that’s not a cock. I like fingering a lot too, but of course tentacles go WAY beyond that.”

If you want to be the monster, instead of its bride, you can thank Kailani Vieria. She came up with the idea for Cthulhu’s Daughters. These epicene demons appear female but have tentacles that turn into a double-penis. Something for everyone.

An avid science fiction fan, Kailani had seen tentacle sex in anime Hentai pornography. "I thought it would be awesome to have tentacles I could rape people with,” she said cheerfully. She brought the idea to Ishtara Rothschild, an animator she knew.

"She loved the idea,” Kailani said. “Went straight to work on it. The prototype looks exactly like the finished version, of which I received the first copy. The first time I used it was with a young female neko, I raped her with them. It was very erotic.” She’s used them many times since then, and the magic never fades.

The designer, Ishtara, invited me to her pleasant, sunny office. Monogrammed coffee cups sat on the bookshelves behind her desk. A picture of kittens playing hung on the wall. As always, a great product started with a great concept: “First and foremost I wanted to design a tentacle tail that could be converted into a tentacle penis,” Ishtara said.

Stripping down and donning a demon skin, Ishtara demonstrated the Tentacle Cocktail. In the PG mode, Ishtara was merely a demon with writhing tentacles down her spine. But a HUD turns two of those tentacles into a barbed double penis that swells and pulses. “The spikes can be hidden of course,” Ishtara said reassuringly. “Not everyone is into pain.


“From a dominant’s point of view, the idea was to look more-than-human. Impressive. Perhaps a bit fear-and-awe inducing,” she said. “The nice thing about the tentacles… They allow double penetration. And the penetration depth is practically unlimited.

“Well, makes for some interesting role play,” she added with a smile. “It’s a probe type of thing, especially when it comes to anal penetration. Also the snake-like appearance… writhing, wiggling… well, it has an erotic note too.”

I asked where someone might be able to buy such a thing. Ishtara directed me to her fetish mall, Dark Delights. “They are along the balcony between the bat wings and the Real Nipples,” she said.

This was the first time I had been able to trace a Second Life trend to its source. I was interested in finding out how Kailani discovered this unmet need. “You know, I really like the multiple penetration aspect,” Kailani told me. “I’m a switch. I also like to play with tentacle monsters.”

I asked if she found tentacle play erotic. “Very much so!” she said. “I’m getting turned on right now just thinking about it. The rape fantasy is part of it. And the alienish aspect turns me on. Probably ‘cause it’s generally considered taboo.”


Meanwhile, across the mountains of madness, Stacks Kowalski has disengaged from the Lurker Beyond and makes her way warily through Yggdrasill. She enters a quiet snow-covered meadow spotted with trees and unusual plants. “It’s so pretty,” she says. “Just don’t touch anything.”

A watermelon sits on the ground nearby. It looks harmless enough. Stacks clicks on it. A scream rends the air. Tendrils shoot up and snake around her ankles. An engorged, green member probes upward, sensing warmth, wetness, sex. Stacks is at it again.

    Woot, thanks for covering one of my fetishes. I have created a wonderful Demon av with the best tentacles… spine, hair, tounge, tail and cock. So hawt, but the sounds of a hud controlled tentacle that turns into a barbed cock for impaling my victims is making me wet and slimy.

    Why would ANYONE want something to be the new furry? are they that masochistic?

    The PN would have a field day, except the wapanese faggots who’d fap.

    Ah, I think that Sensual Stoneworks did this first. In fact, the “Lurker” mentioned is a Sensual Stoneworks product. And they’ve had a “stinger tail” that pivots between the wearers legs and combined with one of their ‘creature based’ cocks, achieved double penatration .. and they had this months ago ! I guess SL is big enough for two scripted beastiality firms, huh?

    BTW, Sensual Stoneworks also has unicorns, spiders, a basilisk, and other wonderful creatures to ‘take advantage’ of you … just search for their sim and ENJOY !

    Oh, one day, if only the public would quit being so bigoted and realize that the love between an Elder God-like monster and its doomed prey is as valid and important as the love between an anthropomorphic fox and an anime-inspired llama in a diaper, or even the love between grown adults who like to roleplay as children and get they nasty on after virtual pre-school. I think it will take some time, fellow seekers – mainly because these things will never be taken seriously outside of your special little fetish world.

    All of those items mentioned above are Sensual Stoneworks products, Herald, you’re a little late with this story and Stacks isn’t exactly the first one to be doing this.

    No doubt in each sexual encounter above, there is an overweight,balding,chronically single, social deject with back-hair at the keyboard in a dark room…typing with one hand. He remains hunched over his computer hours on end ignoring the phone (bill collectors)…and his hygiene. I picture him wearing a white tank-top that used to fit–sadly now it tightly envelopes his pasty-white belly. He loves that shirt as each stain tells a story.
    The floor around his computer is littered with wadded-up, used kleenex tissues and old socks. Living on a diet of RedBull (to give him wings) and frozen pizzas he slowly increases his girth, as the chair beneath him groans in agony. The cockroach scampering across the Twinky wrapper on the floor even looks up in shame…feeling sorry for him.
    This is the true story behind the SL photos above. Degenerates that hate their lives so much that they purchase femal skins, dress it up, and play “dolls” – raping each other for “fun”. They lose themselves in fantasy at the expense of their health, family, friends, and careers.

    Men, its not too late. Press CTRL-Q and visit a park, watch the sunset, relax in a bookstore, learn a new language, make amends with your family, jog in your neighborhood, go to church,.. do I need to go on?

    Do not mock the Old Gods, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

    “That is not dead which can eternal lie. And with strange æons even death may die.”

    Cthulhu is much more than a mere sex toy.

    “In his house at R’lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming, yet He shall rise and His kingdom shall cover the Earth.”

    That Yggdrasill is one crazy guy!

    Oh and the monster in Cloverfield isn’t Khuthulu or however you spell it. It’s probably a giant whale/mutant thing with parasites all over it’s body the size of VW busses. J.J. Abrams stated that he created the monster after being inspired by a visit to a Japanese toy store with his son which would lead one to believe he’s not just using pre-existing characters. Sorry to burst the Comic Book Guy bubble!

    Otherwise this tentacle deal is the most retarded shit I’ve ever seen. It’s just another sexual fantasy depicting women in helpless victim poses which also proves that most oversexed females in SL are really guys that don’t know how to please a real woman so they make them out to be mindless playthings set to do your bidding and only react instead of interract.

    And yes, this is a new low for SLH. I guess when you’re already at the bottom of the gutter and want to go lower you have to dig in mud and shit!

    Whiskey-Tango-Foxtrot, over.

    Seriously, this is just insanely stupid. You know, there is a good deal of really cool anime out there. Then there is the “tentacle-monsters-raping-women” variety.

    Why anyone would want to incorporate this into thier SL is truly disturbing and not healthy. Associating sex with violence is one thing (bad enuf), associating the incomprehensibly-horrible-and-truly-evil with sex is a whole new level.

    Folks, please turn yourself over to medical professionals immediately so you can get the proper care and attention required, and so the public at large can be protected from you.

    what a LOAD of TOSH..
    ok..besides the (very valid) points above about this ‘fantasy’ being dumb/degrading etc etc
    .. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos contain little or no sexual scenes.. now u can say it was HPL himself (he certainly was a individual with ‘issues’) or the fact that the mythos entities simply arent concerned with ‘sexuality’ as we understand it.
    but–however u slice it… the very notion of ‘cthulhu sex/tentacle sex’ is DUMB.

    Tentacle rape is………

    *thinks carefully on her wording*


    An EXTREMELY aquired taste, most definitely NOT for everyone, and tends to be sadly what most people envision now if you say Hentai, or even just anime. I’m 1/8th Japanese, (paternal Great Grandmother) and I can’t talk about that part of my heritage with one of my girlfriends because tentacle rape and such oddites as pubic hair being illegal to show and vending machines that dispense soiled schoolgirl panties have lead her to brand all Japanese culture as being worthy of obliteration.

    As for Cthulu, I strongly doubt Lovecraft envisioned his dark god would become a visual aid for a sexual fetish.

    Personally? If I’m going to hear the word Yggdrasill, I’m choosing to fondly remember beating Dragon Quest 8 on my PS2. The Tentacle Fetishists are welcome to the rest of it.

    “I have created a wonderful Demon av with the best tentacles… spine, hair, tounge, tail and cock.”

    Of course you have… seriously… nobody is surprised.


    “Herald Classic. *stamp*”

    Therein lies the problem. I have no idea why you would even allow this shit on your fake newspaper, let alone ENDORSE it.


    ” No doubt in each sexual encounter above, there is an overweight,balding,chronically single, social deject with back-hair at the keyboard in a dark room…typing with one hand. He remains… etc…”

    True dat.


    “wtf is this? This isn’t news material. Fucking retards at SL Herald.”

    SLH isn’t news… I’m not sure why you’re surprised by them posting something that isn’t news material.

    @My dear friend, Penny:

    “I’m 1/8th Japanese”

    I feel sorry for the Japanese.

    Yea. ..Yao…spot on. I came to this article via the Elease Graves “photospread” as I know of her via Flickr. ( why she would want to be in this rag with a picture quality worthy of a noobe is beyond me)
    In second life, the freedom to create your own world behooves us to take the good with the bad. But hey, it makes it really really easy to spot the Losers in Second Life.

    Penny should try one of these types of articles… Join the classics of “Bukkake”, “Dulcett”, “Vore” and now “Tentacle Rape”

    These classics make the SLH shine.

    Oh yes, my bosom pal, I feel sorry for the human race knowing you’re among it’s ranks. The Japanese have much worse to be ashamed of than my having some Asian DNA. Like the Canadian Government waiting for them to match their apology for putting Japanese in camps during WW II by apologizing for kidnapping Canadian women abroad when the war started and forcing them to work as “comfort girls” for their soldiers. I highly doubt anyone Japanese could give a rat’s ass about me, oh my sweet lovely buddy.


    Nah, researching the Gor article already made me nauseous enough, I’ll skip doing stuff on all the weird fetishes which at worst make me uncomfortable and at best I just find very silly. Besides, if I don’t write an article about Furries or Tentacle RRape or what have you, someone can still complain about my horrid amateurish grammar, or how nothing I write means anything. The complainers will always find something, I don’t need to go out of my way to accommodate them now do I?

    BTW Angel, am I liked or hated this week? I use you as a gauge, since one day you post glowingly positive reviews of my stuff, then on others you think I’m pointless crap, so I use you as a guide to whether or not I’m doing my job. Please do keep me informed will you luv?

    > “BTW Angel, am I liked or hated this week?”

    Hmm, that depends alot on how your writing is hun. Sometimes it’s passable, sometimes boring but mostly it’s rather stilted with overuse of commas. There is no sort of consistancy to give you an answer.

    My glowing praises tended to come before your little temper tantrum when you deleted everyones comments, at that point I lost a lot of respect for you. Since then it’s been more “Meh”

    I am, however, seeing an improvement in your ability to handle the griefer-tards so I am happy for you. It’s nice to see you growing a backbone finally.

    Although I still am not sure if the search article was Ironic satire or serious.

    Jan 13th, 2008

    OVERuse of commas? Odd, one of the first complaints I got here was UNDERuse. Wondered when someone would notice the intentional overcompensating to annoy that critic. Oh well.

    The search article was what it was. Decide for yourself.

  31. Effete Diction Robot

    Jan 14th, 2008

    @Penny: My complaint was that you didn’t know how to properly use commas, period. And it was far from the first complaint you’ve received about your writing.

    I’m starting to wonder if there’s more than one person writing under your pen name.

  32. Penny Sautereau

    Jan 14th, 2008

    Never said yours was the first complaint asshat. I said the first complaint I ever got on the Herald, not your complaint. My what an ego you’re showing to go along with your pompous asumptions?

    Please go away now? There’s no purpose served by continuing to stuff your feet into your mouth. Go find a hobby would you?

  33. Effete DIction Robot

    Jan 15th, 2008

    @Penny: I really did think you were talking about me. I’m sorry.

    By the way, there are two Ss in assumptions, and your comma usage has failed again. Are you intentionally undercompensating? Or is that personality number two?
