Apparently you have to buy a vag?: "I'd like to buy a vag, Pat"
PR:Um so, after some very sexualized conversation, I just let some SL dude on the SL beach start to undress me and let me tell you we were both pretty dismayed to discover I didn't have a "working" vagina. Also I am having blatant online sex at Gorilla Coffee (in the name of research!)
Mere:OMG the VAGINA COMES SEPARATELY? What. The. Fuck.
Liz: that is incredibly amazing/disturbing.
PR: I mean there's a shadow, but you have to buy like a designer vag. I just found one that advertised "tightness". You HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME. Six bucks on a tight vagina that no one will actually physically feel?! This world is Andrea Dworkin's nightmare!!
Mere: So are you going to do it? At least you're getting a lot of material for your piece?
PR: I think I kind of have to refuse spending money on a vagina online. I think the material is going to be the fact that this is basically a crazy hegemonic male porn dream. It's so hard to find a vagina with more pubic hair than a tween vag. Sadly, after being on it all morning I was like, "I need to take a break--oh, maybe I'll go get a bikini wax" then realized that I was unconsciously internalizing SL pornographic standards!
Liz: also i'd like to see the subject line rewritten as a wheel of fortune reference.
PR: ahahahhaha like "I'd like to buy a vag, Pat"
Liz: precisely. and then maybe vanna comes out with the vag puppet from tyra?!
