Gone are the day when we want to wrap on a frosted glass window door and it would reveal a distort woman, big gloved hands, clutching her clutch, waiting for a private dick attached with a trail of cigarettes smoked to tell her whether her husband was cheating on her. Now you can just create a virtual private eye avatar and seduce your own husband. I mean his avatar. According to the Guardian, a British woman filed for divorce after discovering her husband’s avatar cheating on her avatar in the virtual reality game Second Life. His response, “We weren’t even having cyber sex or anything like that. We were just chatting and hanging out together.” Nice to know technology doesn’t change the classic lines. His wife however claims that he had started a real relationship with the other woman off line and that he’s lying was the ultimate betrayal. It’s interesting to know that his wife and her avatar had already broken up with the man and his avatar once before when she discovered him having sex with a virtual prostitute. Talk about six degrees of penetration. It seems technology is changing our definition of cheating and a clandestine emotional connection may be more devastating than the physical one. Maybe the woman in Japan who murdered his husband’s avatar by deleting his account had the right idea and Second Life people need to get a first one.
