The Oldest Club For Women In Second Life
A Woman’s Touch is like a sorority where women can relax and have fun together in a safe environment. We are not a lesbian group, rather a place for all women to gather away from men.
This philosophy has made us a unique and very popular place in Second Life. Many have said that they spend most of their game play time hanging out at A Woman’s Touch.
With few exceptions, men are excluded and this leads to a very open social environment. Freed of the tension between sexes women can be far more open about themselves with out attracting unwanted advances or rude remarks. Such openness has generated many strong friendships and an observer might think we are all sisters gathered to have fun together.
Second Life does not provide a way to restrict a property by sex and keeping the house women-only is a challenging task. A Woman’s Touch has a staff of 20 Security Officers (see groups) to handle problem men.
Most often, the men that do land are new players or players that have not read the house profile. In such cases, we do try to be polite by allowing them to take a quick look around and offering them another place to visit. However, any guest that is being bothered by a male visitor should call for help from a Security Officer. Read here about VIPs
There are many attractions and lots to do at AWT, but it seems that few people are aware of all that is here. I have put together this list of some of our public areas with descriptions and landmarks. Please feel free to explore. HOWEVER, there are many privately rented homes. Please respect our renters and don’t go exploring in houses.
Rent a home at AWT Park Place
I am excited to announce that we have opened AWT Park Place - a second island adjacent to AWT. This is a low-lag residential island with a central park , coffee shop, water sports, and it is restricted to AWT members. In keeping with our non-profit philosophy, the rents will be priced at the minimum necessary to meet the monthly charge based on expected occupancy.
However, to fill the Island, I will to offer land below cost to AWT Island members. With the discount, the rent will be $L 1000 a week for a 40 X 40 plot (approximate) with 500 prims. Larger plots with higher prim allowances are available at this discounted price. Anyone renting during this period will lock in the discounted price for the duration of their stay.
Rentals are an important part of financing for A Woman’s Touch. In addition to the new island, we have nice rentals and open land starting at $L 400/week with 200 or more prims. All rents go 100% toward supporting the facilities and programs at AWT.
This is a big step for us but I think an island populated by AWT friends would be a big benefit both for our members and the existing Island. Living near friends would provide a great social experience different from the club atmosphere. Yet you would be only a short jump away from the excitement of the facilities of AWT Island.
If you are interested in renting a home here at AWT, talk to Ashra Lang and she will be glad to show you what is available.
