Why's Airship Fetish Sex the "Ralph Pls Go" SL Meme of '12?
This Second Life screenshot above was on the front page of Reddit last night, submitted by "audiwark", who explains, "My lady wanted me to try Second Life with her, she told me I could be anything and do what ever I want." So now several hundred thousand if not millions of Redditors are defining "anything" to include hot threeway sex with an A-10 Warthog Gunship. (Baby, my GAU-8 Avenger cannon is rotating so fast right now.) And this isn't even the first instance of airship fetish sex to go viral this year: Back in March, Penny Arcade Went There with a couple dirigibles.
Somehow, all this seems a step up from the previous SL sex meme from a couple years ago:
"Ralph Pls Go" (NSFW, obviously), which just seemed more like douchey griefing to me. And while there's all kinds of bizarre erotic inventions in Second Life (many I didn't know about, even after living in San Francisco for so long), I'm pretty sure airship sex isn't one with a huge following. Maybe it's due to the arrival of mesh, which has made vehicles that much curvier and sensual. Or maybe lots of Redditors are a lot kinkier than me. Whatever floats your boat, dude. Or should I say, gets your plane airborne.
