For those that are unaware… the purpose of this picture is in direct relation to:
In March, Linden Labs announced they would be making changes to the way people would access content inworld.
*******The following is a summary prepared by DanielRavenNest Noe******
Linden Labs is planning on separating "Adult Content" from people who are not verified to see it. This is a summary of the plans coming from reading their blog and forum posts about it.
(1) What is this all about?
Separating what they define as "adult content" from SL people who are not verified to see it.
The Blog post is here:
The definitions are on this page:
There have been thousands of forum comments on the subject already, with a few answers from Blondin Linden on this thread:
(2) How will they do this?
Right now, land has two categories, Mature, and PG, and there are no limits to anyone to visit them. They will add a new category, Adult, and only people who have been verified will be able to visit/TP, or see search results for adult places.
They are creating a new mainland continent, Ursula, which will be all adult rated sims. Adult rated estates/islands will stay where they are. Some clubs and businesses will have to move to the Ursula, if Linden Labs decides they have to. You can see the Ursula sims on the in-world map if you search for that sim name, but you cant visit it yet.
(3) What is verified?
go to the SL website, log in to your account, then use either the "Age Verification" or "Update Billing Information" links on the left in the blue area. Either one will work. They are accepting government ID, or valid credit card/paypal to prove you are adult.
If you spent outside money on XStreet that will also verify you. Transferring L$ from second life does not.
(4) What is the timing?
It is planned to be announced generally to SL in a few weeks, and the actual changes in June/July.
(5) How does this affect you?
If you have an adult club or business, it will have to be located on an adult rated sim. If you work at or visit such a place, you will have to be verified to reach it. The definition of "adult" is pretty broad – if its advertised in search, it is restricted to only verified people.
(6) Any chance of it not happening?
They already have decided to do this whether we like it or not. The changes to the sim/server software to enable the adult category have already been rolled out in version 1.26.2.
The changes to the client software (what runs on your home computer) will be coming in the next version (1.23).
(7) Does this mean I cant use my sex bed at home/other adult stuff in private?
Comments from the Linden staff have been on both sides of this issue. In general, if its in private then it can stay in a mature region, but at times the following has been said to make it public: Ad or event listed in search, sending out notecards, advertising on the web outside of SL.
Thats it for the known facts, the rest of this is my personal opinions:
(8) Problems with this change/workarounds/unanswered issues
(a) It does not really verify you are over 18.
It only proves you could get the right information to put in the website, or spent money with Linden Labs. Even then, if an adult verifies an account, an underage person could later log in on that account. Fake ID info has worked for some people.
(b) It will lose business for adult places in many ways:
Newbies who have not verified yet will not be able to visit or search for them. Even if a newbie wants to find adult stuff, if nobody can let him know how to verify, he wont find out. Any place that has to move will make its old landmarks obsolete and probably lose rank in search
(c) Not everyone will verify
People might not want to link their adult fetishes with their real identity by verifying, or trust the third party site that does the verifying, and so not everyone will do it
(d) Mainland Mature and PG regions will not be adult free after this:
Freelance escorts can still hang around non-adult areas and solicit customers, even if the landowner doesn’t directly encourage it. Newbies can still wander around naked with their cock attached. People on private land can still do their thing, and everyone else can still ppek via camera controls, or just see it if its outdoors
(e) Search will be gamed:
La vache qui rit
Cattle can only be used in the plural and not in the singular: it is a plurale tantum. Thus one may refer to "three cattle" or "some cattle", but not "one cattle". There is no universally used singular form in modern English of "cattle", other than the sex- and age-specific terms such as cow, bull, steer and heifer. Historically, "ox" was a non-gender-specific term for adult cattle, but generally this is now used only for draft cattle, especially adult castrated males. The term is also incorporated into the names of other species such as the musk ox and "grunting ox" (yak), and is used in some areas to describe certain cattle products such as ox-hide and ox-tail.

"Cow" has been in general use as a singular for the collective "cattle" in spite of the objections of those who say that it is a female-specific term, so that phrases such as "that cow is a bull" would be absurd from a lexicographic standpoint. However, it is easy to use when a singular is needed and the sex is not known or is irrelevant in the context of the conversation, as in "There is a cow in the road". Further, any herd of fully mature cattle in or near a pasture is statistically likely to consist mostly of cows, so the term is probably accurate even in the restrictive sense. Other than the few bulls needed for breeding, the vast majority of male cattle are castrated as calves and slaughtered for meat before the age of three years. Thus, in a pastured herd, any calves or herd bulls usually are clearly distinguishable from the cows due to distinctively different sizes and clear anatomical differences. The Oxford English Dictionary lists the use of "cows" as a synonym for "cattle" as an American usage.[Full citation needed] Merriam-Webster, a U.S. dictionary, recognizes the non-sex-specific use of "cow" as an alternate definition, whereas Collins, a UK dictionary, does not.
Colloquially, more general non-specific terms may denote cattle when a singular form is needed. Australian, New Zealand and British farmers use the term "beast" or "cattle beast". "Bovine" is also used in Britain. The term "critter" is common in the western United States and Canada, particularly when referring to young cattle. In some areas of the American South (particularly the Appalachian region), where both dairy and beef cattle are present, an individual animal was once called a "beef critter", though that term is becoming archaic.
