More publicity for Linden Lab - what could possibly go wrong?
Second Life's well known sex-bed entrepreneur Stroker Serpentine, his Second Life virtual family, and his real-life family are to be featured Monday May 2 on the "Fantasy Lives" episode of National Geographic Channel's Taboo series.
In addition to a Stroker's online and offline work in the cybersex industry, the episode will also look into the life of a California man who role-plays an adult baby, with diaper, pacifier and customized baby furniture, and a Japanese champion kick boxer who dresses up as female animation characters while boxing.
Could this sort of coverage explain the failure of the Second Life as an enterprise platform for serious business?
The National Geographic Taboo site's facts page tells us "the population of Second Life is growing by 36 percent per month", so it appears that one of Rodvik Linden's fantasies may also be mentioned in this episode.
Look for a spike in Second Life signups following the episode and strong in-world demand for virtual diapers and pacifiers.
