I like to go to the furniture places in SL and jump on the couches and the bed. It is lots of fun. When you try that stuff in Rl people get bent all out of shape.
I think it is because Rl limits us in ways that SL does not. First of all wearing evening gowns to furniture stores is frowned upon for a few reasons. You make all the other women look like complete crap and it can ruin marriages. One minute a couple are shopping for a new coffe table and the next he is trying to trade hid wife in on a new model. Literally.
