Second Life is an online gaming community where you can escape the tedium of actually engaging with real people and immerse yourself in a poorly rendered fantasy world. It is well known for catering for all tastes and for popularising the infuriating term 'avatar'. An avatar is your online appearance; in my case, a rohypnoltastic wank fantasy with unfeasibly large boobies. Why? Because I've heard that you can pay someone to sexually assault you on Second Life. I wanted to see just how harrowing pixelated deviance could be. I met a French guy called Sympacool and he showed me how it's done.
As you read this, please bear in mind that Benjamina is actually a guy with a beard, all dialogue is happening in real time, and Sympacool's avatar had blond dreadlocks and a skintight über-gay T-shirt. And white trousers.
