After you are done stuffing your face full of turkey and cranberry dressing this Thanksgiving, you’ll be faced with the age-old dilemma of what to do next. Do you take a nap, watch football with Uncle Bob or talk about needlepoint with your Great Aunt Gussie? How about a trip to the red light district or a quickie marriage instead?
While Great Aunt Gussie may not sound too exciting, Utherverse.com can provide a great diversion from your normal post-holiday doldrums. The virtual universe for adults has many distinct areas for you to explore – including a red light district modeled after Amsterdam (pot not included!) and a section dedicated to music and pop art based on Toronto.
I had a chance to talk to Utherverse’s webmaster last week about the site. Jezebel, who declined to give her last name a la Cher, spoke candidly about what the online universe has to offer the LGBT community. From realistic looking animated sex to gay marriage, you can do what you’d like in this no-holds barred environment.
WARNING: While I highlighted a wedding ceremony here on the front page, screenshots of lesbian sex after the jump are not safe for work!
“We’re offering a chance for people to do something they can’t do in their real lives,” Jezebel told me. “Whether that’s getting tattoos or piercings, bi-curious experiences, exploring sexual taboos, cross-dressing, or handicapped users dancing, it is the evolution of the internet.”
The company is an advocate for LGBT rights and specifically included gay, lesbian and bisexual sex in their adult section. You have to be 18 to sign up and access to the adult section. While basic memberships are free, the red light district will cost you $20 a month.
The site has a huge base of gay clients and tons of bi-curious men. Although the site splits almost even between men and women, gay men are the most avid users from our community. The gay sex animations include many different positions and kink levels. Do you feel like being tied up, enjoy sex toys or role playing? Utherverse offers it all.
Virtual weddings are also popping up in the interactive world. Jezebel officiated at the site’s first gay wedding when two of her gay friends decided to hold an online ceremony. Over 150 guests attended and while a few virtual protestors showed up to picket outside the venue, after several other ceremonies the protestors have accepted reality and moved on.
“In a social setting people fear change,” opined Jezebel. “When we decided to be advocates for gay community and said we’d let folks be themselves, we had a little bit of homophobia. I expected a lot worse. It’s more accepted because it’s virtual. Others who might not accept it in real life do now that they have been exposed to it online.”
Sadly, the pre-beta site is not Mac compatible. As a blogger that loves his iBook and uses it almost exclusively, this is a big deal. “By the time we fully release everyone will be able to comfortably download the game and use it,” Jezebel assured me.
If you are a PC user interested in a little more entertainment than football and naps this holiday, check out Utherverse. Get laid. Get married. Get excited.
