It’s an extension of how I would look if anything went in in real life.” It’s the sort of remark that would have most of us running for the hills, but instead Carolyn and Elliott spent up to 14 hours a day, chatting, flirting and having sex via their avatars.By way of explanation, Caroline told her daughters that her avatar was like Barbie and her boyfriend was just like Ken, albeit that in this X-rated version Ken happens to own an arsenal of AK47s.Meet Kira, Kira is a platinum blonde, impossibly leggy, with a flawless complexion and an eye-poppingly pneumatic figure.She oozes confidence and pouting sexuality, so it’s no surprise that handsome Keanu Reeves lookalike Nik fell for her.
