“Life is too short to be living somebody else’s dream.” ~ Hugh Hefner
Yesterday I posted about the dream of partnering whomever you would like. Today I am going to talk about the dream of being the perpetual bachelor. For some men coming to SL, it’s a real dream—their own home, no boxes of tampons in the bathroom, no Legos underfoot, no family watching “American Idol” at top volume. Imagine your own space guys, complete with black and white furniture from creators like Tya Fallingbridge, Kaerri Rae, Tobais Convair, and Ravyn Hynes. And a great big photo of a young Hugh Hefner, the idol of bachelors everywhere, hanging on the wall.
You can get your own place, way up in the sky, like this build from Tobais Convair. Completely in mesh, this Okemos prefab is loosely based on Frank Lloyd Wright’s Usonian builds (which were much more modest in scale and materials). With only 58 prims for the entire build, it will leave you lots of room to fill it in with goodies, like tiny little 35 prim martinis and complicated 49 prim stereo systems.
It’s all a grand concept! The only problem with this? It’s kinda lonely for a bachelor all alone. Solution? Your own Playboy Bunny! If the Hef can do it, you can too!
She can dress up in little things, lingerie and sequined bunny suits like this one from Mzzy Wytchwood that is being sold in three versions at Genre, with a little powderpuff on her tail and bunny ears. She can serve you drinks or make you coffee, giggle at all your jokes, sing, “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” for you in a breathy voice while she shows you her sexy new shoes from Gospel Voom.
And what a babe. In this skin from sawsan Secretspy, an exclusive for the Skin Fair, she can give you a private show, especially with her bold show-girl makeup. And long auburn locks from Truth Hawks make her the redhead you always dreamed of.
It’s a dream come true, no? I mean Hef does it. Always has a Bunny at home.
Of course, even Hef came to realize it’s not all it’s cracked up to be. He had three beautiful blonde women living with him and he spent a lot of time hiding in his private bedroom from them. And then he almost married his young blonde girlfriend Crystal, only to have her break it off at the last minute. (They did finalize it last year.) He pays extraordinary alimony to his ex-wives.
OK, guys, maybe not such a good idea. But worth the fantasy.
