After the ‘Privacy, Risk and Exposure’ BlogHer SL session was mainly about ‘virtual relationships’ and exporting them, I’m curious about the SLex / RLex ratio of my fellow residents. (Yeah! You! ;))

Do we indeed engage in SLex as often and with that much different avies as the mainstream press claims, or aren’t we as ’sinful’ as they are depicting it?

SL/RLex Ratio: formulaAs I’ve heard many claims of still being a Second Life virgin, but no ‘I never had sex IRL’ claims came to my ears yet, I thought it more safe to divide by the amount of RLex partners then by the number of SLex partners since as far as Vint knows her maths, you can’t divide by zero. (If anybody knows of another way to solve this divide by zero problem, please do tell!)

Furthermore, there are two SLex/RLex ratios. The Gross SL/RLex ratio includes the occasions a payment (be it in real money, L$, virtual or real goods or services) was either received or given. The Net SLRLex ratio does not include ‘monetized’ SLex or RLex.

As to make sure results for all main grid residents are somewhat uniform and to rule out the differences in RL and SL age, you should take the amount of SLex partners since the day you rezzed in Second Life divided by the amount of RLex partners since that day you rezzed (in SL, not rezzed in FL ;)).

In case of ‘alts’ there is the ALT-ratio, wherefor the # of SL partners is the sum of the number of SL partners of all alts since the day the oldest alt rezzed.

I’m also thinking of adding a constant, to kill the maybe ‘increased easyness’ to find SLex over RLex. (More overall present, cheaper, …). Yet, we need to first know the numbers before we can define the constant? So for now, take v = 1. And should female (avatars) get a ratio (or an extra constant?) different from the male avatars to keep things fair? As far as I’ve seen there is much more ‘girl on girl’ action then ‘boy on boy’. Could also be I grew up in the wrong neighbourhood of Second Life. ;)

The meaning of the ratio’s results:

  • 0 < 0.5 : Not interested in SLex, or a very poor looking / English impaired avatar. Did you even invest in genitals?
  • 0.5 < 1 : Well, I’ve tried it, but it just doesn’t beat the real thing. *Goes back to the sandbox.*
  • = 1 : Very rare ratio, where your SLex life is in total balance with your RLex life. Up to now I know of only one avie with that ratio.
  • > 1 : Lot’s of SL partners, not that much RL partners. Let’s prove those RL newspapers right.
  • ‘error’ : No RL sex partners had since the day the avie was rezzed.

And for the daring there are the Weekly SLRLex Gross and Net Ratio: the amount of times you had SLex during the last seven days divided by the amount of times you had RLex this past week.

My ratio’s:

  • Gross SL/RLex ratio: 1.5
  • Net SL/RLex ratio: 1.5
  • Weekly Gross SL/RLex ratio: error
  • Weekly Net SL/RLex ratio: error

And for the ones that were asking: ‘No, the Falken administration did not count political manoeuvres to be SLex’. ;)

Disclaimer: Don’t see a psych based on these number and my analysis of them. *grins*

My ratio:

Gross SL/RLex ratio: 0.7
Net SL/RLex ratio: 0.7
Weekly Gross SL/RLex ratio: 0.5
Weekly Net SL/RLex ratio: 0.5

Comment: last 7 months i have a SL partner, if i count times instead of partners ratio may be higher. Moreover the RLex number of a gay male can be higher than average str8 male.

Raul, the weekly ratio is ‘times’ not amount of partners. And, yet another constant that needs to be added then? To equal things out? And aren’t they going to accuse me of measuring with different standards if I do so? ;)

Gross: 10+ (Can’t count….)
Net: 3
Week gross: 0.5
Week net: 0.5

hmmm… that mathematics is deadly precise…..
ok, easy part week (both gross and net) = 1
for the overall I have to do some counting… stay tuned…

Ok, correction…
Weekly Gross SL/RLex ratio: 1
Weekly Net SL/RLex ratio: 1

About the “another constant” thing, well, more than a constant will be a variable. ;-)

times not partners?!
forget it, How I can count how many times I had sex in last 9+ months?
Nevertheless…. there is a problem with this stats… In last nine months my virtual sex life started and evolved, that means it went through the experimentation phase. At the same time, my RL sex life is long past experimentation, more like settled. So it is hard to compare the two.

SLex Math?

If only this was available in RL school. I would’ve caught on much faster

*chuckle* I sell some adult toys on the grid, but my ratio would be sad. I’m all about the RL sex.

Gross/Net SL/RLex ratio: 0, for the weekly values the experts still did not agree on the precise value :)

And yes, I did invest in genitals, just for curiosity sake. I think Boeing 747 has a better learning curve :D Then went away as a present to a friend (hmm now that I think - interestingly enough, they were “xfer” - kinda fun concept :)

Dandellion, are you checking the RL diary or the SL diary for the numbers? ;) And overal ratio (since rezz day) = partners, weekly ratio is times.

Zoe, we should teach SL math classes. ;)

Storm, you don’t test what you sell? *grins*

Dalien, lmao on the Xcite learning curve.

Loki also said to me, we should look at SL time like dog years, as everything ‘moves faster’. So divide the numbers to normalise them. Well, that’s what the ‘v’ constant (Vint constant) is for, no? Still not sure about which numbers to use, thoug.

mmm… lets see:

G: 4 or 5
N: idem, 4 or 5 / never paid nor was paid..

rather high numbers but due to:
a) initial curiosity, “learning curve”…
b) rather “stable” RL, small divisor in the SL/RL fraction..

WG: 0
WN: 0
MG: 0
MN: 0

well:.. lost interest in it rather soon.. during this initial phase I found that for most partners (exept maybe 1) SLex was quiet a straight forward / visual thing ; the poseballs doing most of the work.. and the “pillow talk” mostly uninspired…
or did I hang around with noobs for to long??

I agree with dandellion. I knew some good ’story writers’, but even then - for me - it was very quickly very boring.
