"I'm looking into making a foray into the world of SL sex. Before I get involved, I have been noticing that there are so many options as far as body parts, HUDs, and many other things. Some things are stand alone, others need compatible items to work properly. It is all so confusing. I decided to search for information online. Unfortunately, after several hours, was unable to locate anything on the web that wasn't a number of years old and, apparently, no longer pertinent. I'm not sure I am in the right place to even ask this question. Can someone point me to a place where I can get up to date and accurate information on all of this? Thank You A~"

"Thanks Ariel, and thanks to all who replied. I really appreciate it. Reading all of your responses have helped but I think Ariel hit the nail on the head. There is just so much that it is hard to ask specific questions. The "genital Attachment" question was one for instance. I personally don't need one and sex for me is more cerebral than visual, yet I didn't know if guys would look at me as cheap or less desirable if I didn't have one. It is things like that. Its good to know that the older information can be relied upon today. I will look at it with a different eye. Guess I need to find my online mentor. Thank you all A~"
"Excellent questions. I hope you think of more specific questions and get more and varied answers. I will be interested to see them myself.
My sexual experience in Second Life leads me to believe that a nice skin and shape is all you really need. Maybe a couple of non-n00b outfits, which are easy enough to get for free if you join designer merchant groups or follow tips from SL fashion blogs.
I'm a female both in SL and RL. I was led to purchase prim genitalia my first week in SL. I bought it, fussed about with it, abandoned it and never looked back. No one has mentioned it since. I don't miss it and neither do my sexual partners. I think it is largely unnecessary. People who purchase them and enjoy them can give you another point of view, but I guarantee you it is a "nice to have" luxury, if anything, and not a "need to have" necessity.
Beyond that I think it depends on your specific fetish or favorite flavor. I'm loathe to go into further details here because I am keenly aware that the Second Life forums are PG and strictly moderated. I would highly recommend that if you want an open discussion about sex in Second Life where you can get full and varied answers, that you take your question to one or more of the third-party SL-theme forums like SLUniverse (SLU), Second Citizen (SC MKII) or gotVirtual (gV). There is a link to some of the third-party forums on the Second Life Wiki (http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Discussion_forums#
Lastly, I will tell you it is IMPOSSIBLE not to have sex as a female in Second Life, hell, even the guys can get laid. I really don't know of anyone who can't get cyberlaid somehow someway in Second Life. Sex is easily obtained. The question is... what kind. And that depends on more than prim genitalia.
Anyway... good luck to you and I hope you have lots and lots of naughty fun. "
