The article about ABC Island lead me down a four hour rabbit hole, and now it is well into the morning. I always find it interesting to delve into old blogs, furry or otherwise. I never used Second Life, but I have read in multiple places that it was very easy for dedicated users to "put themselves in" the body of their virtual avatar. It's amazing how humans are able to anthropomorphize things and imagine our personality in them. In particular, this post by Wolfie,

It’s funny, but it doesn’t take long for the avatar to feel as though it’s an extension of yourself, so when someone catches you naked, it’s a little bit embarrassing.

Furry culture thinks that sex, of any kind, is quite a normal thing, and that genitals are merely another part of the body.

I had genitals, multiple kinds for each avatar… human, equine, canine and dragon and we wore these proudly and flashed them about with gay abandon.

PS: I'm still waiting for the Flayrah registration email.
