When you were a little human they probably told you about storks that bring little babies. Or maybe that they are found in the fields of cabbage. Or maybe you were lucky to hear about the bees and the birds. Whatever they told you, it was not about going to a mall and paying several hundreds of lindens for a scripted tummy, HUD and a prim baby.
While there is so many words said against virtual pregnancy, it is not that bad if you take a second look. What if human is actually pregnant and want to extend that state of the body and mind on the avatar too? Or maybe it's an experiment of a young woman, just to feel how it feels. Girls like to play with babies, that is a normal thing in life since childhood.
And it would be silly to think that second life creators will not respond to the wishes of the residents. From pregnancy tests, via animations and clothes to the furniture for your prim offspring, everything is there. Even scripted things that will make your next nine months (or any other number of weeks you choose) more believable. Actually, there is something called Tantra HUD (not sure that it's the good name) that syncs the cycles of the avatar and the human:
So, the first step in getting pregnant is getting in sync with your natural female fertility cycle. That's where Tantra plays a part. As you know, when we first enter SL we have no fertility cycle but you can change all that just by adding the Tantra HUD to your AV. The HUD gives you many choices: the length of your cycle, its variability, as well as choices between very realistic odds of conception and significantly enhanced odds.
And then, there are all the transgendered guys out there. If his partner is pregnant and two of them are waiting for the baby to come… it sounds perfectly normal, that his avatar, being already transgendered, is having a prim tummy too. It is the closest they can get to the feeling, it might be a good bonding spot and a way to learn more about each other and the pregnancy. It is kind of SL's education potential.
And me? I'll skip it for now.
