The other day, bored, I lazily surfed the webs and happened upon an interesting blog post in the Second Life Forums: Who are the famous people in Second Life? Ya’ll know Jumpy! Jumpy VAIN! Just as I was rushing to type “ME! ME! I’M FAMOUS!” I was chagrinned to note that someone had beat me to it (Innula Zenovka, hi Innula).

I spent the next couple of days yapping with a guy who knew EXACTLY who I was claiming I wasn’t famous, NOT because I haven’t achieved any noteriety: but, rather, NO ONE is famous in Second Life, just popular within a certain niche. Well this guy is an idiot because some in SL have indeed gained note outside their sphere of endeavors.

Fame is “The condition of being known or talked about by many people, especially on account of notable achievements”.

Imfamy is “The state of being well known for some bad quality or deed”.-Oxford Endlish Dictionary.

Oh indeed, there are people who are known and talked about by people whom they have never met, in places they do not frequent for things that they have done. If the things aren’t current events; then, they are historical. Yet, the noteriety remains. I wouldn’t bore you with a list of “who is famous or why” in SL caws, gentle readers, if they ARE famous YOU KNOW THEM LOL-and we are talking PORN here!

Porn sprang one day, a little glimmer of an idea out of olbie-tard Marilyn Murphy’s SL-mudfaced Avi-ed head. Jennnnna Jameson organized a rag tag collection of sole practioners (like me!) into an industry. Men like Ruff Brocco set the standards, defined what it meant to be a Second Life pornographer. Many, like Quinn Ying ventured out beyond the industry. choosing the ex-pornstar route and blazing new paths. Yet now, where does porn in SL stand? Why, at the crossroads of glory, all due to the current wave of Second Life Pornstars.

Porn is indeed entering its golden age because people like Partee Mytili, Larry Vinaver and Ashley Sugarplum have what it takes to cross over into a much larger wider fame outside of their chosen industry.

Partee Mytili

Partee is the most popular active pornstar in Second Life. Sure, Jennnnna is the most famous. Jameson is a legend. Yet, Jennnna has retired. Partee’s WORKING. It’s no accident that one can’t mention Partee without mentioning Jennnnna Jameson. Personality-wise, they are VERY similar. BOTH have hearts of gold. Both have quiet unassuming natures without a hint of vanity. Both are REAL, genuine PEOPLE.

They are both VERY charismatic people too. Folks want to KNOW them, not JUST sleep with them. People sense the greatness. They become enraptured by it. Naturally both have their fair share of haters; and, hatred PROVES. Haters mean your doing something right.

Larry Vinaver

If Partee Mytili is the most popular pornstar, Larry Vinaver is the most popular MALE pornstar. The man has style to BURN. It’s not easy to set oneself apart from a sea of interchangable male performers when everybody is focusing on the ladies to begin with. Larry pulls this feat off with ease. Larry has created a PERSONAE. He has crafted an idea of “what a pornstar is” and projects it in every bit of work of his I have ever seen.

I scour flickr. I lurk around The Pornstars group blogspot blog. Larry JUMPED from the page, his charisma UN-DE-NIABLE.

Ashley Sugarplum

Ashley Sugarplum is beautiful. In a world of beautiful women Ashley’s great, signal quality is that she is PHOTOGENIC. Point blank and period, Sugarplum could very well be one of those fashionista-brand models gracing the ads of the snootiest of snoots. She could be “The Face of” ANY. DAMN. THING.

Were Ashley to plunk down very serious Linden Dollars, join some stodgy modeling academy, suffer the slings of snobs harping on her pornstar past, NONE could halt her rise to the top of the fashion indusrty. I know. I had Crista wellen, tops in the fashion world shoot her and she said Ashley was a dream to work with!

The Golden Age of Porn is a wonderful wave washing over us all. A plucky lil pornstar today has every right to expect fame, even fortune in a virtual world ripe for the taking. These three are leading the charge. My advice to anyone entering the industry is this: Keep swinging for the fences. The world is YOURS.
