As IMVU players chat, they can also make their avatars interact.
Among more innocent activities, avatars can kiss, cuddle, and make out with each other (with a credit card, you can purchase a “mature access” pass where they can actually simulate sexual activity.) If 13 sounds a little young to be engaging in this kind of virtual world, you’re not alone.
IMVU players select an avatar and buy clothing and items to personalize its world.
The avatars have adult bodies (not 13-year-old ones,) and virtually all of the female avatars are sexy and large-chested with suggestive outfits to match.
Aside from customizing your avatar, the real focus of IMVU is interacting with other players.
Users can chat with someone they know or click the “chat now” button to randomly connect with other players.
