The following link is definitely Not Safe For Work, but it is 3pointD: Red Light Center, “the first adults-only massively multi-user, online-reality erotica community,” recently launched in “pre-beta” and is making a limited number of basic memberships available for free, according to a press release. Of course, Red Light Center is hardly the first 3D adult world, but judging from the screenshots and video tour on the site, it’s pretty well put together — if you like that sort of thing.
From the press release:
Exploring RedlightCenter.com through their avatar characters, users can have fun dancing to live music, viewing some of the world’s most erotic art, or watching a sexy show. For a completely different experience, women can live out fantasies such as being an erotic dancer in ‘The Night Candy Gentlemen’s Club.'”
Interestingly, the world seems to double as a promotional outlet for sex toys and other products — although the contention that trying out a sex toy in the virtual world will give you an idea of its real-life usefulness is a strange one:
Visitors to RedlightCenter.com can also conveniently and anonymously browse for sex toys, sexy lingerie and other adult products. They can even try out various sex-toys or try on new outfits to see how they might look on their avatar before deciding whether to purchase. Our users can view thousands of top-studio erotic and XXX films or safely participate in unrestricted sexual activity — all risk-free.
In addition, the cyber universe offers Community Events, such as parties, classes, meeting rooms, live music with dancing and art-gallery openings. These events are broadcast within the online universe. Users also have the ability to put on their own events to real audiences within the various RedlightCenter theaters. User-presented events are expected to include the multimedia broadcast of content from podcasts, films, book-readings, comedy acts, band performances, instructional classes and more.
In fact, no less than half a dozen adult VWs were scheduled to go online this year, and there are already adult worlds such as Sociolotron in release. For more news on all things virtually sexual, visit MMOrgy.com.
