Beauty Pod at Future Femdom

We are very excited to be opening the new 'Beauty Pod' at Future Femdom!

In the sky above the city, we have been making a  'House of the Future'. Each room (pod) has its own purpose.

In the Beauty Pod, Sisters can sit on a chair and touch various screen for (simulated) closeups. Of course, there is also a mat for slave to lay underneath and provide worship.

Our famous Manicure Machine is also there, so you can test different nail styles. (a HOW TO notecard will be available soon)

Check out the Beauty Pod now

The Guide includes every LM and texture for each and every item and area of Future Femdom, so you can explore and study various parts of the city.

The Old Men's Club at LEA: Linden Endowment For The Arts and The Cage

This is a story intended to amuse:
I am telling it here for one reason: to illustrate how the virtual world of Second Life is still plagued by archaic closed-mindedness and very predictable male egos, who love to throw those egos around in what I term the 'middle management' level of SL.

Some time ago, while I was on the board at LEA (Linden Endowment For The Arts), one of the many things I did (and was never thanked for, of course) was the project to get the LEA a proper Landing Point, and then have it listed in the Second Life Destination Guide. It had been rather ludicrous that LEA had neither an actual LP or Destination Guide listing since it formed, and in actuality, this amazing oversight indicates exactly how 'out of touch' the organisation was.

In any case, I spent countless hours working with the board and participating artists to create an open-air style radial platform with links to every aspect and area of LEA. This was designed to eventually tie into the LEA website (should it ever come to exist). The image at top should show the style of openess and welcomeness I was planning. (it may be hard to see the sightlines from the photo, but it was very open and had a lot of links and accessible content) The LEA had so many departments and ongoing projects that there were dozens of possible links, so I planned for growth.

When a very small minority of the board decided to discriminate and manipulate in order to have me fired, these members of what I will term the 'Old Men's Club' made certain I was gone and never once thanked for any of my contributions. Typical of that form of arrogance.

As always, I must state that the vast majority of LEA participants and board members are wonderful and loving, hard-working and caring people who deserve every success. And most of the men I deal with in SL are fabulous, kind and enjoyable in every way. It is, sadly, a slim minority of very bad apples that ruin the pie. This minority perpetuates the ancient ways of arrogance. Hundreds of years out of date.

But here is the amusing part....
Before the door had even closed behind me, my Landing Point was replaced.
Look at this image:

I affectionately call it the LEA Cage. When you teleport to LEA now, you are literally surrounded on all sides by prison-like bars, reaching up and collapsing into the sky so there is no escape. This is the perfect metaphor for the mentality of the oppressive Old Mens Club. Gone are the sightlines and welcoming content: now you are imprisoned in a forboding funnel.

This should not surprise anyone who is remotely familiar with the LEA's resident architect, the one who has made an SL career out of building very very very tall and grotesque, skinny, oppressive objects. Werner Kurosawa is one of those Old Men from the Club who create ominous structures that might impress adolescent boys, but seem designed with no consideration that people may actually be inhabiting the buildings! These un-ergonomic designs enforce claustrophobia and are forboding, cold statements that stab into the sky.

Take a look at the other works of Werner Kurosawa and see the common elements:
Large, lumpy, perhaps, but mostly impossibly large and/or tall.

I think it is very funny (and a bit obvious) that Werner Kurosawa creates a giant phallus each time. One of his LEA buildings, for example, is so phallic and so tall, it is unphotographicable. 

I think it is funny (and pathetic) that all of my work was replaced by yet another Werner Kurosawa phallus. I have no love for this man, as his behavior during my time at LEA was akin to that of child. I really don't work with children in SL.His communication-style I would describe as 'non-existent'. But, really, it's his phallic architecture that stands out the most.

The little man couldn't wait even one day to erect his phallic cage.
A metaphor for the Old Men's Club?
Is this what we have left of the old ways?
The dinosaurs?

This is a story intended to amuse. See the Cage and Laugh. These dinosaurs are not going to be around much longer.

Future Femdom's Labour Policy: How The Banned May Get Unbanned

I am very happy that, generally,  the male members of the Future Femdom group and male visitors of the city are bred well and are wonderful worshipers. I find it very pleasing and exciting to wander the city and know that, generally, any slave you see will likely be a fun plaything and above all, very convenient and respectful.

Of course, in Second Life, we expect a certain amount of 'unpredictability'....

For various reasons, we have found it necessary to 'ban' a slave. In Second Life, banning means that a specific resident cannot enter the area again (unless unbanned by the land owner)

Why do we Ban?
Sometimes it is a absolute griefer, harassing brat, or mischievous troll. Sometimes it is someone who has arrived just to cause trouble, or someone who is a known misogynist or abusive personality throughout SL. (yes, I have banned a few abusives who may never have tried to enter Future Femdom before, but I know enough about them to prevent the possibility. I mean, really....who would want trolls like Counter Landfall aka Gavin Hird or discriminatory hacks like Solo Mornington anywhere near their peaceful and free land?) SL has its fair share of arrogant troublemakers; those ban lists can get quite lengthy!

More often than that, men are banned (and sometimes, Women who don't act very sisterly) because of simple rules violations. Sometimes its a small matter, and the ban in expected to be very temporary. Other times, it is a more serious level of disrespect and banning carries more weight.
A banned person will likely be able to remain in the Future Femdom group  (for communications sake) but will not be able to enter the actual land.

In any case, a man who disrespects the Sisterhood and/or the House Rules of Future Femdom is banned and then assigned a certain number of Labours. The number will reflect the nature of the transgression. Many transgressions carry a penalty of only one Labour, while more serious ones may be as high as 3 or even higher.

How To Get Unbanned
  1. The man must write a notecard, with a list of suggestions/proposals of WHAT THE MAN WILL DO. Suggested Labours are not the same as 'promises'. Labours are actions the man will DO to prove he really wants to return, and they MUST be actions he can do BEFORE the unban. (in other words, the Labours cannot be performed within Future Femdom)
  2. The man must send the notecard with the proposed Labours to Ginette Pinazzo
  3. If any of the Labours are approved,  the man may then do them.
  4. Once the approved Labours are finished, the man will be unbanned.
How To Get Unbanned
I completely refuse to suggest ideas for Labours. The men must be creative and think for themselves. We do not work for men. They are free to ask other men in the FF group for advice, or consult anyplace else, but it is not the task of the Sisterhood to think for men. The ideas do not need to be elaborate (but may be). The Labours can even be a fun and creative opportunity, and I feel the men that understand this are best suited to become our worshipers anyway.

Why This System?
Men must do the work. If they are serious enough to propose the Labours and do them, they are probably worth having back. Otherwise, who needs the lazy ones? I have found that the men who take the time and effort to come back properly often become wonderful worshipers. Those who whine about the Labours and don't do them, were never worth the trouble in the first place. Part of the Sisterhood is about responsibility, and to me that includes making sure that men do not manipulate or become lazy. To me, this includes having quality expectations and being strict about them.

As we've been rearranging the Sky Area over Future Femdom, we have moved the cute little Adoration Park to a new spot.

This is a fun place to 'take slaves for a crawl' (they crawl around the grass like actual worms)...
good exercise for them!
