Diomita & Jenny Maurer’s Interview

Introduction

This Q&A session is a face to face interview with Diomita Maurer and her partner Jenny Maurer.

The first one of its type posted.

So it should keep you lot happy till next week……..I hope!! ((All excluding Pet that is *winks*))

Dio was a former sister of mine to Yasmin.

The first notable memory of us meeting was when Dio was on her trial to Yas, locked in a capsule, stirring at a blank wall, for 2 weeks plus.

Not my idea of fun but there you go.

I tried to visit her when i could to help her through this and we became close friends as a result of this, and still are.

Jenny i met through Dio.

I have images in my head of her wearing a hooped black and white latex catsuit, prisoner style….locked in Dio cage at her Stonehaven home.

If you come to Mount Everest, the sim we share. You will find little has changed! Same cage and same Jail-bird Jen locked in it *winks*

Onwards and upwards…..Question time!….This is a long one so grab a coffee, get comfy and indulge…

Question 1 : What first brought you to SL?

Diomita: For me it was a link in a bdsm website

Jenny: very good question

Jenny: my children had found it and I wanted to see what it was like

Jenny: also it was mentioned in a newspaper, so I really wanted to see what all the talk was about

Tyra: hmm so did they try it themselves?

Jenny: yes

Tyra: Are they still on SL?

Jenny: no, or at least I hope not

Jenny: no they complained about the lag and as children they could not do very much

Tyra: lol, well I guess that could be awkward

Jenny: they do know I still use it though

Tyra: I couldn’t imagine any of my family on here

Jenny: you can not hide things from children

Jenny: you just think you do

Tyra: well I guess so, it’s not easy

Tyra: So Dio, you found SL in a link?

Diomita: Yes

Tyra: from a D’s site?

Diomita: from there on, well I made my first steps on the welcome island

Diomita: or welcome center?

Tyra: newbie island is more fitting lol

Tyra: I think it’s all changed now from when we started.

Jenny: that place is a nightmare

Diomita: it was not that bad a step by step. How you move, how to wear clothes and so on

Tyra: i hated it to be honest

Jenny: i had trouble learning the first things

Tyra: it kinda put me off

Diomita: who had no troubles?

Jenny: when you meet a 2 day old Mistress with 10 subs you know they have not been to newbie island

Tyra: lol, so old?

Jenny: we met them

Diomita: SL is full of start over avatars now

Tyra: I think we are moving on to my next question now, It’s in the same territory.

………………………………………………………………………………….

Question 2 : What are your first memories of SL?

Tyra: i know it was a long, long time ago *winks*

Diomita: giggles

Jenny: there were two main sites in those days

Jenny: the Bondage Playground

Diomita: seriously, Pandora’s Prison and Stonehaven

Jenny: of the 2 Stonehaven is the place that holds the first memories

Jenny: the BP helped me to find out who I was in SL

Jenny: Stonehaven found my life in SL

Tyra: it was really both of your homes really in that first year

Jenny: yes

Diomita: yes

Jenny: the cage room and the patio were the best meeting places

Diomita: I rented a home there when I retreated more and more from Pandora’s

Tyra: and some great memories of there?

Diomita: really by pure accident Yasmin was my neighbour

Tyra: i remember there wasn’t much distance between each house there

Diomita: just a few meter below my house, and i have a whole bunch of memories

Jenny: we could stand at the fence and see what was going on at the next house

Tyra: which makes for a more friendlier environment, but not so much if you wanted privacy

Jenny: when you say what is your first memory, I remember that SL was very absorbing

Jenny: it was very easy to feel in RL what was going on in SL

Jenny: that was part of the addiction and SL is very addictive

Tyra: which again leads me to question 3

………………………………………………………………………………….

Question 3 : Has there been a time when you have thought that you were spending too much time on SL?

Jenny: Yes and often too

Jenny: but when I think about it, it is what I want to do and it gives me a pleasure I want

Jenny: and I meet my best friend here

Tyra: it kinda gets a grip of you

Diomita: yes and I do spent too much time online but then it is my free time and I enjoy it, but it is not easy to keep a good balance to other activities in RL

Jenny: look at the real choices

Jenny: TV is bad and bad for you

Jenny: going out every night is expensive.

Jenny: so why not spend the evening with your best friends

Tyra: it’s when you start changing things in RL just to be on SL that its starts getting a problem

Diomita: no, I disagree

Tyra: well you don’t know the extremes of that

Diomita: it is the question “How do i want to spend my free time”

Tyra: i don’t mean minor things Dio

Jenny: I do try to arrange my SL times to fit around Dio’s times

Diomita: my RL comes first and dictates the time I can spend here

Tyra: I mean things like ringing in work and saying your sick, just to come on here, as an example

Jenny: that is quite extreme

Tyra: i guess i meant that you shouldn’t do things that affect your RL just to come on SL

Jenny: we always tell our family and friends that RL must always come first

Tyra: yes for sure

Diomita: it comes first for me

Diomita: SL is my hobby, the way I spent my free time

Tyra: yes and that’s perfectly healthy

Diomita: instead of tv, not instead of sports, but yes my friends here became important to me, so it is meeting my friends at night

Jenny: there is another thing also that counts for this question

Jenny: when we first met, the question of SL and RL and our expectations of the two mixing where identical

………………………………………………………………………………….

Question 4 : What has been your favorite moment of SL?

Jenny: wow

Jenny: you first Dio

Diomita: my wedding to jenny

Tyra: now Jenny you can’t pick the same *winks*

Jenny: I won’t

Jenny: the wedding was something special

Tyra: it’s seems an age ago now

Jenny: it came after both of us re evaluated what SL meant to us

Jenny: we started off as Mistress and slave

Jenny: and what we have now would not have happened if we did not meet the first time in Stonehaven

Tyra: it’s fate Jen

Jenny: Dio took me to her house and gave me a tour

Jenny: when she showed me her double cage I asked is she wished me to enter it

Jenny: It was not that night, but when I did, that was the start of our journey together

Jenny: since then we have had many highs

Tyra: and it’s been quite a long one in SL terms

Jenny: yes 4 and a half years

………………………………………………………………………………….

Question 5 : What has been your least favorite moment here?

Diomita: Hmm

Jenny: let me think

Diomita: that harder to answer

Jenny: yes I have it

Jenny: when Rivers rock was closed down and it looked like we were going to lose everything

Jenny: most of all Chez Maurer which was a gift to us for our honeymoon

Jenny: that was a horrible feeling

Jenny: we spent days not knowing what would happen

Jenny: and we got a short time to grab what we could to rescue our belongings

Tyra: How long where you at Rivers rock?

Jenny: that is tough, was it a year?

Diomita: a bit longer i think

Diomita: 18 months?

Jenny: yes it could easily have been 18 months or more

Tyra: it’s not nice to lose somewhere that becomes your home

Jenny: when it happened at Dragon cove we had already protected everything and kept copies

Jenny: yes it could easily have been 18 months or more

Jenny: we had the house at Stonehaven too for a while

Diomita: my least favorite memory, that is hard to answer really

Diomita: but one was for sure when Yasmin dissolved her family new year 2009

Diomita: well she didn’t in the end

Jenny: that was a bad time for everybody involved

Diomita: but I do remember it

Tyra: to me it was a mean thing to do with very little gain

Tyra: i mean it upset quite a lot of people when it happened

Jenny: it was a poor way to use power

Diomita: from that time on I hated drama and i still try to avoid it

Diomita: and we had drama moments and they all belong in the category least favorite memories

Tyra: yes everyone has drama filled moments that they’d rather not of happened

………………………………………………………………………………….

Question 6 : Has there been things that you have wanted to do or try, but have yet to achieve them?

Diomita: yes and now you want to know what *giggles*

Jenny: I do even if Tyra doesn’t lol

Diomita: I bet, love

Jenny: lol, yes there has to be

Diomita: I wanted to do the Bound Maids program, but couldn’t leave the family for such a long time, and I have still little time for projects, right now my project is sorting my inventory and making a catalog

Jenny: we also have other plans together and individually

Jenny: we say often that we are on a journey together

Jenny: it is a long road and we have all the time in the world

Jenny: if we do it all today what will we do tomorrow next week next year

Diomita: for example Jenny and I still want to take an in-world vacation in SL

Jenny: yes we have plans for a vacation together in SL

Tyra: hmm make sure there are no brats allowed in the resort *winks*

Jenny: do you count as a brat?

Tyra: no-no I’m not a brat Jenny *winks*

Diomita: or collaring you as my brat Tyra. Still to be done ^^

Tyra: that’s just pure fantasy, Dio lol

Jenny: or becoming bridesmaids in SL for you and Vi

Tyra: Hmm I’m afraid that’s along similar fantasy lines as the other statement lol

Diomita: no seriously, we both have still a lot to explore

Jenny: that equates to there is still life in SL

Tyra: It’s good that you do still have things to do here and I’m sure you will have lots of time to do so

Jenny: I hope so

Tyra: I’d best duck for this next question lol

………………………………………………………………………………….

Question 7 : Is there a person on your friends list that you have wanted to punch?

Jenny: lol, let me look

Jenny: yes

Diomita: yes I do have several people on my FL list, not just one who I would have loved to punch some time

Jenny: there is one person in SL who has tried to get close to ask questions and never listens

Jenny: she asks for advice then does the opposite and she acts as a friend then turns it against you

Jenny: so I hold her at arm’s length

Jenny: just out of punching range

Tyra: kinda bitchy lol

Diomita: I do have several people on my FL list, not just one, who I would have loved to punch some time. I won’t share any details. And I’m sure I’m on other ones FL and they feel the same, just I don’t know about it.

Tyra: I guess we all could be

Diomita: like in RL you have friends who you fought with and did not cancel friendship, because you’re an adult

Jenny: there is a saying…you hold your enemies closer than your friends

Jenny: so you always know what they are about to do

Jenny: SL has a few people you have to watch closely

Diomita: No, I wouldn’t go that far, just that I’d love to punch some of them in history

Jenny: lol *whispers* like the owner of DC, we both wanted to punch him

Tyra: Now you are getting carried Jen *winks*

Diomita: Dweeb isn’t on my friends list anymore, Jenny

Jenny: not now lol

Tyra: Now this feels like a bit of a loaded question lol

………………………………………………………………………………….

Question 8 : Is there a person on your friends list that you wished they’d been your Mistress or Sub? ((pick either one))

Jenny: this is easy for me to answer and not really very interesting for you

Jenny : I never want a sub of my own

Jenny: so that answer is no

Jenny: and the only other person I considered was Yasmin but not seriously

Jenny: I wished to be a closer part of her family as I felt pushed out quite a lot

Diomita: For me, yes there is

Diomita giggles and looks at Tyra to answer who would be her answer to the Mistress or sub question

Tyra: lol i know very well what your answer is Dio!!

………………………………………………………………………………….

Question 9 : If there was one thing about SL you could change, what would it be?

Diomita: lag

Jenny: yes that is one thing

Tyra: it is a major issue

Tyra: It seems also to be a recurring theme for this question

Diomita: seriously lag is my issue

Jenny: the second thing is the amount of changes that LL push through

Jenny: not all of them are for the better and the cost of SL for land owners

Jenny: a lot of Sim’s close because the owners can not afford to run them

Jenny: a lot of the best places we knew no longer exist

Diomita: My personal opinion is that you shouldn’t get a place if you depend on others to support you, but that is a personal thing

Jenny: I agree with that

Tyra: a lot of stores now have moved to just selling from Marketplace because of the price of land

Diomita: I still prefer shopping in-world

Jenny: me too

Tyra: i think it has its benefits and its bad points

Jenny: SL built up on the idea that people could make money, but the biggest winners are LL

Jenny: we do what we do out of choice and we knew the costs

Diomita: LL is a professional company who has to make profit. Nothing bad with that. I pay for my entertainment here and it is still comparable cheap

Tyra: You can still make a lot of money but it takes a lot of effort and LL are more a hindrance than any help

Tyra: more people who own large store that are popular, like Moody’s, N-Core etc

Jenny: yes true

Diomita: I doubt that you can make money really as a resident

Diomita: I prefer to work RL, that’s quicker, more secure and more effective

Diomita: you spend your free time in SL

Jenny: the other things in SL that we do not like we have control over

Jenny: we can choose our friends and what we do

Tyra: okay its the last question from this section….

………………………………………………………………………………….

Question 10 : A few years have passed since you joined. Do you have any regrets?

Diomita: None

Jenny: none what so ever

Jenny: SL has changed my RL for the good many times

Jenny: when I lost my temper in SL, Dio helped me control it in RL too

Tyra: not even tying Dio up and stripping her,while dancing around her, more? *winks*

Jenny: done that lol

Jenny: no seriously, I could not have wished for more than we have had together

Diomita: non, “je ne regrette rien”

Tyra: Its a good philosophy

Diomita: Honestly, I think its me here, you can’t really differentiate the person behind the keyboard from the person in-world, not on the long run. And I enjoy being here.

Diomita: and having no wrinkles !!! nor cellulite!

Tyra: lol

Jenny: and it is almost impossible not to bring RL into SL

Tyra: well they run parallel, SL and RL

Jenny: yes they do

Tyra: it up to you what you take from it and give back

………………………………………………………………………………….

Ok that ends that section of questions, now for the Hypothetical Questions.

Question 11 : If you could spend one good day with just your partner, Without any interruptions, what would you like to do?

Tyra: that kinda brings up the vacation part again?

Jenny: not quite

Diomita: getting kidnapped and locked away and being played with together with her

Jenny: the kidnap is one thing on our list

Jenny: one day without interruptions is a rare treat for us now

Diomita: yes much to rare, we are too caring

Jenny: so you can add to that list a day of either a red or green light too

Jenny: a day where one of us Domme’s the other

Jenny: I am looking forward to my next chance

Jenny: and already I have to include others

Tyra: I’m sure Dio is available to be tied up most days Jen *winks*

Jenny: she may be, but one of the things that got us this far is our rules

Jenny: it avoids any misunderstandings and power struggles

Diomita: Tyra, you won’t believe it, but you’re far from the truth, has I am not

Tyra: Through your family commitments, I understand

………………………………………………………………………………….

Question 12 : If you could trade bodies ((AV’s)) with one of persons from your friends list for a day, who would it be?

Diomita: oh dear

Jenny: fun answers

Jenny: don’t read anything into this

Jenny: I would say Vi

Tyra: you have to say why Jen *winks*

Jenny: she was one of the first people I met in SL after Dio

Jenny: and she always seemed to have a mysterious presence about her

Jenny: if I was going to choose an Avi instead of mine at day one it would be like hers

Tyra: Hmm well if you enjoy getting your bum spanked by me, then that’s perfect *winks*

Jenny: lol, you said Avi

Diomita: I’ll choose BC

Diomita: I would like to smack you all with no regret and getting a thank you for it

Tyra: lol if BC spanked me, she’d have big time regrets!

………………………………………………………………………………….

Question 13 : If you were invisible for 12 hours in SL, what would you do?

Jenny: it is easy to be invisible in SL

Tyra: not without people not knowing you are there

Diomita: right now, I’d sort my inventory, but for the fun part, I would be shamelessly submissive *winks*

Tyra: they wouldn’t know where to lock the cuffs lol

Jenny: go to a sim where you don’t know anybody and see how many people see you in local chat

Jenny: I would like to see Angel at play in her school while she did not know we were watching

Jenny: she is a good RP’er and can infuriate people who think they are in charge

Tyra: Well you’d better watch your step around her, if she can’t see you and has to pee *winks*

Jenny: lol true

………………………………………………………………………………….

Question 14 : If you were asked to give yourself a nickname, what would you choose?

Jenny: there is a good question

Diomita: gees

Jenny: when i first joined SL, it took me about 3 or 4 tries, getting used to newbie island and finding a name

Jenny: the first one had my real name

Jenny: then I realized that was a mistake

Tyra: lol yeah

Jenny: I saw the chance for laylady lay as a joke

Jenny: but then after I met Dio and SL became something I liked and grew into, the name was all wrong

Tyra: It’s from a song right?

Jenny: Yes it is

Jenny: So for a long time I wished I could change my name

Diomita: Dio is just good and I love it, so no regrets really

Jenny: so when LL allowed name changes I was really very, very happy

Jenny: I would have paid a lot of money to get this name

Jenny: so with your question, do you mean what name would you change your display name to?

Jenny: or just be called as a name by everybody?

Tyra: a nickname

Jenny: one of the fun ones we have now is Auntie

Tyra: that describes you best

Diomita: pffffffffffff

Jenny: Auntie D and Auntie J

Diomita: Lady D would be a nice nickname or Lady Dio

Jenny: we don’t take ourselves too seriously

Tyra: well you could always try that one out lol

Jenny: so we often tease each other with things like that

Tyra: yeah you could have fun with it

………………………………………………………………………………….

Question 15 : If someone offered to make a movie about your life here in SL, which actress would you choose to play you?

Diomita: Ellen Barkin

Diomita: not your generation, I know Tyra

Tyra: i know who she is

Tyra: is that because your AV looks like her?

Diomita: No, I like her and she would fit perfect to me and also to my avatar

Tyra: nods

Diomita: just some more wrinkles and cellulite than Dio here *laughs*

Tyra: lol, and your pick Jen?

Jenny: that is a tough one

Diomita: now come on, be spontaneous

Tyra: or Dio picks for you *winks*

Jenny: Courtney Cox

Jenny: I had some ideas but it has to be somebody that people will know, so Corrie is out

Tyra: it can be anyone you like

Tyra: but your choice is pretty hot lol

………………………………………………………………………………….

Question 16 : Assuming that you are still in SL and you could ask your future self one question in five years time here, what would it be?

Jenny: where did all the time go

Tyra: lol spent in chains Jen *winks*

Tyra: Dio?

Diomita: How did you manage to stay below 13,000 items in your inventory?

Tyra: Hmm i would like to know that too!

Jenny: lol you have a strict slave

Diomita: I do

………………………………………………………………………………….

Question 17 : If you were to write a book about your SL Life, what would you call it?

Diomita: Diomita Maurer

Jenny: can I tell you a something

Jenny: something about my RL that is true

Jenny: and it answers your question

Jenny: my ring tone on my phone has been Secret Life by Soft Cell for over 3 years

Jenny: my book would be called my secret life

Jenny: I like it as they both have SL

Jenny: and when I hear my phone it reminds me of my My time

Tyra: that’s a good story

Diomita: good title

Diomita: mine could be “Dio on tour” Diomita: the name would be either “Dio on Tour” or “Eurobrats”

………………………………………………………………………………….

Question 18 : If you won the SL lottery, say 50,000 Lindens, and only had one day to spend it, what would you do with it?

Jenny: that is easy

Jenny: I would pay our tier, so we all have our sim for a long time to enjoy

Diomita: I’d go shopping clothes

Tyra: Dio you are trying to keep your inventory under 13k remember?? lol

Diomita: lol

Jenny: you can buy them but your strict slave might not let you keep them *winks*

………………………………………………………………………………….

Question 19 : If you could relive your last year in SL, would you change any decisions you made? If you would, which ones?

Jenny: over the last 12 months, yes?

Tyra: yes

Jenny: I would say we should not have taken on the SBA

Diomita: one I would change but I won’t tell here, so let’s look for the fun side of the question

Jenny: we didn’t really get back what we hoped from it

Tyra: the ballet school?

Jenny: yes

Jenny: it is a great piece of work by Dio and we found some great things to put in it, but I feel we were cheated too

Tyra: Sometimes great idea’s just don’t pan out as you planned them

Jenny: we had one person at least who came to us and took our ideas

Jenny: and we don’t have time to run it properly

Tyra: You don’t have much time with a family to run too

Diomita: I should have kept you and Virgo as our maids

Jenny: that too lol, we let you go too easily

Tyra: you’d best stick that in the regrets question lol

Diomita: there you go.. your answer, Tyra!! *winks*

Tyra: i will stick with what you said originally lol

………………………………………………………………………………….

Question 20 : You’re at a speed dating event in SL where you can only ask each person one question to get to know them, what do you ask?

Jenny: would you like me to go in the cage now?

Tyra: lol

Jenny: in SL, some good questions need to be asked

Jenny: like time zones, limits etc

Jenny: but to know the person

Tyra: you only could ask one though

Diomita: do you have a sorted, well-organized rlv folder?

Jenny: lol

Jenny: that is a good question as it answers a lot of other questions

Jenny: what is RLV?

Jenny: what is a relay?

Jenny: and so forth

Tyra: That’s more than one question lol

Diomita: and using it answers afterwards even more questions, without asking

Diomita: another could be “What groups are you in?

Tyra: you are thinking about it too much lol

Jenny: my question would be, where is your favorite non BDSM sim?

Diomita: giggles “in my RL home”

Tyra: just a mini Dio running riot *winks*

Jenny: even your SL home is a good answer to it

Jenny: it shows you have invested in SL and are less likely to disappear

Diomita: you said non bdsm, Jen

Jenny: ours is

………………………………………………………………………………….

Now for your 2 questions for me…..

Jenny: What do you miss the most?

Tyra: I miss Sam not being here the most. She is one of the few people who i could really say have been a close friend to me and i loved her very much. We shared a time together that has been one of my most memorable moments here. Sadly she left without saying goodbye. I just hope she is living a wonderful life in the RL.

………………………………………………………………………………….

Diomita: Do you miss the kinky sides of your SL?

Tyra: That’s not an easy question to answer. I think that part of me changed when i left Yasmin’s family. I played a lot with my sisters and it was also one of my favorite times in SL. I don’t know why it changed. I guess I began to have trust issues when playing with people after I left the family. I still do play on occasion. It’s not like I have completely stopped playing.

……………………………………………………………

Please feel free to comment and like, if you found it fun.

Tyra Xx
