Buy the SL Pillory RLv Bishop Ball Gag at the Second Life Marketplace

IMPORTANT NOTE: Before attempting to customize your SL Pillory purchases, PLEASE make a copy of them first (right-click on the item and select Copy, then right-click again and select Paste), and be sure to rename your original so you know which version NOT to modify. SL Pillory will NOT replace items due to owners modifying the originals!

Since 2007 SL Pillory has catered to gag lovers across Second Life. The new generation of SL Pillory gags is designed to fulfill all the wishes of virtual kinksters with more features than ever.

First of all, if you own an SL Pillory RLv Muffler, please attach it before attaching this gag. Doing so will cause the Muffler to automatically detect the gag’s presence and configure the Muffler settings accordingly. Click on the gag after you’re wearing it to access its menu.

ABOUT RESTRAINED LOVE

The Restrained Love viewer (commonly abbreviated as RLv) enhances the Second Life experience in a number of ways, including making attachments “lockable” so you can’t detach them. In order to use Restrained Love you will either need to download the native Restrained Love viewer or find a third-party viewer that includes support for Restrained Love.

Because RLv is now somewhat common for the kink community on Second Life, support for RLv is turned on by default. If your gag is sending messages to the chat starting with an @ sign, you’ll need to turn RLv off in the menu.

MENU CHOICES

RLv Settings: You can turn RLv support on and off through this menu. If you’re using the SL Pillory RLv Muffler in conjunction with your gag, you can adjust the Muffler’s settings by clicking on the Muffler’s HUD. With RLv support on, whenever your gag is locked on you, you will not be able to detach it without using your safeword.

Access: This menu lets you control who can access your gag and do things like change its colors and lock it on you..

Public allows anyone within 20 metres of you to access your gag. Needless to say, be cautious when using this option.

Owners Only (or O. Only) only lets those avatars you’ve selected (up to 10) to access your gag. This is the default option. Add Owners and Delete Owners (or Del Owners) let you add and remove avatars to your owners “list.” Note that you must be standing within 20 metres of an avatar to add it to the list. (You can remove owners from anywhere.)

Private sets the gag so only you can access it.

Drool: This menu toggles the stream of drool from the gag on and off.

Lock and Timelock: These commands allow the gag to be locked on you. (Only others can access the plain Lock option.) When a gag is locked on you, you won’t be able to change its setting, and you won’t be able to detach it without sending an IM to whomever locked it on you that you detached it. If you’re using RLv then you won’t be able to detach a locked gag without loading up a non-RLv compatible viewer. If you must detach a gag due to an emergency, it’s recommended you use the gag’s Safeword (see below).

Timelock allows you or others to lock the gag on you for a set period of time, after which it automatically unlocks. In addition to setting an initial period of locking time, you can also set a penalty time to be added to the timelock whenever you speak in the main chat channel while gagged. (If you’re using the SL Pillory RLv Muffler and have Automuffle turned on, you won’t trigger the penalty time because all your chat will automatically be sent to the Muffler’s channel.) Emotes (chat commands starting with “/me”) don’t count as speaking in the main chat channel. You can check how long a timelock is set to last by clicking on the gag. If someone else timelocked a gag on you, that person can end the timelock at any time by using the Lock menu to unlock the gag.

(Note that due to a Second Life phenomenon known as Time Dilation, a gag’s timelock will always last a bit longer than the same amount of time passing in real life. Plan accordingly when setting a timelock.)

Shock (requires SL Pillory RLv Muffler): Like the penalty time of the Timelock, if shock is turned on then you’ll receive a short electric shock for speaking in the main chat channel while gagged. As with the Timelock’s penalty time, this won’t trigger if you’re using the SL Pillory RLv Muffler with Automuffle turned on.

Ball Look: This menu lets you change the appearance of the gag’s ball.

Colour lets you quickly change the ball’s colour to one of eleven presets.

Tint lets you fine-tune the ball’s colour by adding and removing red, green, and blue to the ball, as well as lightening and darkening it. You can set the ball to one of a possible 1,000 colours this way.

Shininess lets you pick between four different levels of reflectivity for the ball.

Default restores the ball to its initial appearance. (Red, no shininess.)

Strap Look: This menu lets you change the appearance of the gag’s straps and panel (if visible).

-Colour- lets you quickly change the straps’ colour to one of eleven presets.

-Tint- lets you fine-tune the straps’ colour by adding and removing red, green, and blue to the straps, as well as lightening and darkening it. You can set the straps to one of a possible 1,000 colours this way.

-Visible- allows you to turn on and off the gag’s head strap and chin strap.

-Shiny- lets you pick between four different levels of reflectivity for the straps.

-Default- restores the straps to their initial appearance. (Black, head and chin straps off, no shininess.)

Panel: This menu lets you attach or detach the panel in front of the gag, or let it hang to one side. If you’re using the SL Pillory RLv Muffler, Panel On will set the Muffler to closed-mouth gag, while other options will set the Muffler to stuffed-mouth gag.

Manual: Clicking this lets you load this page in your browser to check the gag’s instructions.

Detach Gag: This command lets you detach the gag from the gag’s menu (unless it’s locked on you).

Safeword (only available when gag is locked on): This lets you detach a locked gag if there is an emergency. Whether you use this option, or detach the locked gag through your inventory, you will send an IM to the person who locked your gag on you, but if you use Safeword then the message will reflect that.

RESIZING AND REPOSITIONING YOUR GAG (ADVANCED USERS ONLY)

As with many things in Second Life, this gag may not provide a perfect visual fit for non-standard avatar sizes. If you wish to resize and/or reposition your gag, please make a copy of the gag in your inventory and rename the original, and make sure to never change the original! Otherwise, changing the gag’s size and position is similar to changing the size and position of hair, and all the same rules apply: Try to use a posing stand, try to avoid unlinking objects whenever possible, and remember to re-centre the gag after you stretch it out. After using SL’s Edit commands on your gag, you will need to detach and reattach it to get it to work properly. (Resizing the gag may also erase custom settings such as the Owners list and selected colours.)
