Pixel wants to know about xcite.
As a happy xcite user, let me say that the auto cybering is the least of the reasons to have it.
The core of xcite, is the HUD. I know I have written this before, very early on in my blogging about Second Life and Sex, but let me go farther.
Xcite parts provide animations, and you can purchase sounds, the provide visuals, in the form of particles to show orgasm. These additional bits add on top of the use of the HUD as a form of communication. For sex acts, the flow of script cyber helps break up and punctuate your own typing.
So let me talk about the thing that moves me when I know it. Instead of my partner doing one handed typing, he or she is exploring my body, and my body responds. They communicate their actions, in animation, mouse click and cyber. The ability to juggle these things is... hmmm... like a man who can kiss, caress, penetrate and look into my eyes all at once rl. It says he is in control of all of his parts, and able to use his whole body and mind to make sensastion flow to me.
The very "onemorethingtodo" nature of xcite is part of what helps me imagine what the other person is like irl. You don't need xcite to sl-sex well, but once you do, the use of it as a way of drawing someone in becomes a lure, a proof of mastery.
Because while someone can be good at sl sex and not use xcite well, almost everyone who is bad at sl sex, uses xcite badly. Either as a push button trigger substitute for their own imagination
Or just not at all.
Or they will show desires y xcite that they cannot, yet, bear to type. There is a certain man who has his hands on Lady Lillie's Hips (I renamed the HUD, "Lady Lillie's Dirty Mind") and is fingering it as fast as possible. I know what he needs. The same is true with every other part, people can't keep their hands off of what they want. And in the realm of desire, that is communication.
For those who are good at using xcite, at playing my body, feeling, that imagine dfeeling, of hands roaming over my body, as his or her fingers are softly petting the mouse and probing my virtual body. Yes, that inspires the imagination, the physical imagination, which is so key to that elevated experience on sl.
Just closer your eyes right now, and imagine the spirals and traces of a lover's finger tips, tracing ornate patterns, moving form here to there, choosing options, pressing, sliding, teasing.
And imagine that as he is sliding that mouse gently, that he or she is really wishing for his or her touch on your skin, as much as you wish for his or her touch to be upon you.
