Touching tales of furry love
Second Life players’ creativity and core demographic are showcased at the not-safe-for-work www.yiffthis.com site, where romance among gay anthropomorphic woodland avatars is lovingly documented in surprisingly well produced films, complete with money shots featuring the finest in scripted prim dongs.
Enticing titles such as "Naughty Bunny Punishment", "Pleasures of the paw", "Wolf on Wolf", "Sultry Sergals" and the Herald office favorite "Therion x Crux", suggest there is sure to be something for nearly every fursona on the grid.
Will Second Life Community Convention attendees – inspired by YiffThis proprietor Cresil the Wolf’s artistic vision – flock to the SLCC conference hotel’s hot tub next weekend? We can only speculate, but the sort of virtual romance pictured here may give the few remaining Linden staff some ideas.
Perhaps Philip Linden can take some inspiration from the actors as he prepares a new look for his dated avatar.
But not every film takes place in the exclusive, luxurious settings of "Husky Houseguest". Some impoverished furs are forced to live in
Ravenglass less than pleasant places.
The gritty side of the metaverse is explored in "Therion x Crux", when a degenerate crux is caught fapping in the basement by a therion wandering the mean streets of Second Life.
New media critics are sure to enjoy the witty, subversive symbolism of the film as it implies a stereotypical basement-dwelling player is running a basement-dwelling avatar with nothing better to do than watch toon porn on a virtual laptop in Second Life.
This ironic/symbolic gesture is over all too soon, as the narrative quickly moves on to a wild inter-species yiffying session highlighting the sort of crowd pleasing content users love to generate. But with a wink and a nudge the director makes his point, before moving on to the serious therion x crux action. Second Life just doesn’t get any better than this.
