Pan's People - Join in London's LGBT Pride Events




With London LGBT Pride just around the corner, next Saturday 27th June, we're looking to recreate some acts from the 70s as part of the all day event in London City.

We are seeking the chiffon clad dancers, Pan's People to dance to some high energy sounds between acts on the main stage.

If you have always fancied being a performer, now is your chance!   Pans People are needed from 9am SLT (5pm UK) onward.   Because it is a long set and we realise that not everyone will be available throughout, we are hoping to get ten residents to help us represent the five girls through the days events.

You do not need to change your avatar skin or shape but will need to dress the same as the other performers and will share in the tips.   For information please contact rubyjones in Second Life.

Authorised Linden Dollar Reseller Program Ends



Back in 2013 Linden Lab prohibited the sale buying of Linden Dollars by companies who would subsequently resell dollars, often at a rate more favourable than the official Lindex Exchange.

In June 2013 Linden Lab permitted resellers to sell Linden Dollars but not to purchase them from residents, effectively forcing the purchase of L$ to go through the Lindex Exchange.

On 15th June 2015, Linden Lab has announced the end of its Authorised Reseller program, giving 3rd party money sellers until the 1st August to sell off any L$ they have remaining.

From 1st August the Lindex will be the only authorised place to purchase Linden Dollars.

See this link for announcement by Linden Lab


Linden Lab:
We have expanded the payment options for Second Life users, and today, you can easily purchase L$ in more countries than ever before, using a credit card, PayPal, or Skrill, which supports a wide range of payment methods. We’ve found that these options support the vast majority of Second Life users, and we have therefore made the business decision to close the Authorized Linden Dollar Reseller pilot program.
We are contacting program participants directly to detail the next steps for them, and they will have approximately six weeks to sell off their L$ inventory

The great British Summer.   Cold sunny days, boiling hot rainy days.  You would never want to trade it for a stable climate would you?

In RL don't forget to pack along with your picnic, a brolly, raincoat and wellies, the Summer is finally here.

This year we have gone all tropical in Second Life and it is sand sea and surf all the way, so all you need is some beach wear and a margarita!

Red hot action at THE CROWN. (12pm SL / 8pm UK)




The reimagining of the original Crown is complete and the doors have opened!

Earlier in the year when the Crown moved from London City Victoria to London City Soho it occupied the Comptons building and more or less took on its persona, but visitors missed the spectacle of tits'n'ass, so manager Ruby Jones has gone about fixing this.


The new Crown recaptures its original intent, a place where sexy swingers, singles and those in love with the beauty of bare flesh can come and meet other like minds and party the night away.


Adding a brand new feature, the outside pool area, it the opportunity to get some sun on your skin, whilst drinking in a heady atmosphere in a chilled and relaxing environment.

The sexy music is carefully chosen to add to the experience and just like before, everyone is welcome, gay, straight or in between, it doesn't matter, just have an open mind and be tollerant.   You can relax in the pool, dance on the poles or if you are more of an exhibitionist, we're sure you will find a way to display your very best assets.


The Crown is open daily at 12pm SL (8pm UK).  Come on over and bare as much as you dare.
