Professionalism in the Second Life Porn Industry

Having only been in the SL porn industry for a short time, I recognize the difficulty for new members to get acclimated. 

With that in mind, I plan to provide a new perspective on professionalism in the SL porn industry. 

Although there are no hard laws about working in this industry, I do recognize an unspoken set of expectations.

Whether you are here as a model, actress, photographer or videographer; we all need to have a clear understanding of these expectations.

This blog will focus on several expectations that I have learned from working with the professionals I have met here. 

Although, I feel that most of the expectations  are common sense, I understand that not everyone views these things the same way.  Your views, different or not, are always welcome here.

I write this blog with one thing in mind.  We are all from different parts of the world and have been raised under very distinct circumstances. 

Our personal experiences in life, whether it be real life or second life, play a big part in who we are and how we view things. 

This is the ultimate diverse environment.  We should all need to show a sense of respect to this diversity and be accepting of views that are different from our own.

The next segment will be "Naughty or Nice?" Where I will discuss attitudes in the Second Life Porn Industry.  Please share your thoughts!

Huggs,
Rosa Moeleneaux

  1. Respect is a difficult word within the worlds.
    Many don't understand its true meaning while others through whatever has happened in their lives feel respect is earned not given freely. While personally I agree with you in the aspect I respect everyone in their roles in this industry, however I am one who believes respect is earned on a personal basis, I do not judge the work of others without learning them and their styles, with that being said, as a model & photographer I look at things differently then most because I tap into my RL for photography, but I can say so far in my time here I love it meeting new people and working with one of the best, in my personal opinion, photographers on the grid!

    2. Well, the way I understood respect was more respect for those actually doing the work. I'm on both sides here, I'm a model and actress, and a director, now trying to get into photo as well. When I'm working as a model or actress, I'm always keeping in mind that I'm not the one doing the hard work here. What I'm asked is basically only to look good and to be there. This isn't much compared to what the director or photographer has to do, so the least I can do is to actually do it.
      As a director, I did have some problems with people who just always had something more interesting to do than to shoot. So even when I had told them I was ready and we were both online, they hardly contacted me at all, and were always unavailable when I contacted them. I did see it as a lack of respect towards what I had to do. A movie requires a huge amount of time, before and after the shoot, so at some point, you just have to make yourself available if you want to make it work. Of course, that doesn't mean putting RL after your SL, this just cannot work. But when you're in SL, sometimes, you have to force yourself to consider your commitments first, before the fun you might have, and especially when someone else is depending on it.

      And about Rosa's ending point, I always try to choose "Naughty *and* nice". *grins*

    3. You have some very valid points there Erika. Having been on both sides of the camera provides a unique perspective that is coupled with admiration and respect for anyone who does this kind of work.

      I think it is very important to fulfill your obligations to a photographer or director as soon as possible. If you cannot, then you should not make a commitment to anyone. It's a big waste of time for them. And very disrespectful.
