Congratulations on your purchase of the Tantra Total Woman HUD. This HUD is one of the most advanced Pregnancy HUDs in SL today. Please take a few moments to familiarize yourself with the features in this HUD.
NOTE: Version 5.00 is now available. You can get a free upgrade by using the upgrade kiosk at the Tantra Flagship Store by selecting Settings / Upgrade from your HUD.
First of all, don’t panic. Although this manual is long, the HUD is actually quite easy to use. Most of this manual provides details on the various options for your new HUD, but the following steps are listed to help you get set up quickly.
- Wear your HUD. The HUD can be worn on any HUD attachment point, but it works best on one of the Top HUD attachment points.
- Select your Desire setting (Optional). Your HUD ships with a setting of Desire Pregnancy. Using the Settings button, select Cycle Settings \ Set Desire command from the menu.
- Select your Cycle Length setting (Optional). Your HUD ships with 28 day cycle already set. If you want a 14 day cycle, use the Settings button and select Cycle Settings \ Cycle Length from the menu.
- Select your Cycle Variability setting (Optional). Your HUD ships with a 2 day cycle variability already set. To change the setting, use the Settings button and select Cycle Settings \ Cycle Variability from the menu.
- Set your cycle start date, using the Settings button and the Cycle Settings \ Set Cycle command.
- Rename your HUD (Optional). You may rename your hud if desire. You will not be able to rename it in your inventory, but if you drag it to the ground from your inventory, you can right click it and select edit. The name is in the General tab. Once you are done, pick it up and wear it again.
Using the HUD
Other than the initial setup of your HUD, all you have to do to use the HUD is wear it. The HUD detects when your partner has an orgasm when he is wearing one of the following brands of cocks:
- Aeros (version 6.00 and greater)
- Midnight Lotus
- The Physics Cock (version 2.2 and greater)
When an orgasm is detected, the HUD will determine if your partner was close enough during orgasm to possibly impregnate you. If your partner was close enough, the HUD will ask you about the type of orgasm. The possible responses are discussed below:
- Came Inside If your partner had his orgasm during coitus, you should select this option. This option is the greatest chance of causing pregnancy, however, the actual odds depend on the timing of your cycle and the use of birth control.
- Anal/Oral/Etc If your partner had his orgasm during anal sex or oral sex, you should select this option. This option will obviously not cause the HUD to determine pregnancy.
- Female Orgasm If your partner at the time of orgasm is female, you should select this option. The HUD will ignore the orgasm and will not determine pregnancy. If you want a female to impregnate you, ignore this button and use one of the other ones. It’s Second Life and anything is possible! I won’t tell.
- Pulled Out If your partner pulled out in time, you should select this option. If your partner began his orgasm while still inside, you should select the Came Inside option instead. Surprisingly, the pull out method is actually quite effective if, and it’s a big if, your partner successfully pulls out in time. The actual odds of pregnancy used by the HUD depends on the timing of your cycle and the use of other birth control methods.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This HUD will only trigger on the default Xcite! orgasm message. If your partner has customized their orgasm message, or if they use another brand that is not supported, the HUD will not detect the orgasm automatically. However, there is a Manual Orgasm button available via the Settings button that will allow you to manually begin the process. If you use the Manual Orgasm button, the HUD will ask you to select who had the orgasm before asking the orgasm type.
NOTE: In older versions of the HUD, the HUD assumed that if you clicked “Ignore” or didn’t respond in a certain amount of time that your choice was Came Inside. Starting in version 2.00, it assumes nothing happened. You will no long have to worry about going away from keyboard only to find out something happened that cause you to become pregnant.
The HUD works on a 28 day cycle. At the beginning of each cycle, it calculates an expected ovulation date and an expected period date. The expected ovulation date is set on the 14th day and the expected period date is set on the 28th day. The actual dates are calculated based on the expected dates, adjusted for cycle variability (discussed below in more detail).
HUD Indicator Lights – Cycle Status Progress Bar
There is a progress bar that indicate your cycle status. The progress bar will slowly fill in as you move through your cycle. You are fertile during the yellow and red zones in the middle of your cycle. Towards the end of your cycle, your HUD will enter a second yellow stage. During this stage, your period can occur on any day. If your HUD enters the red Late stage, you have missed your period and are most likely pregnant. For more information on the Cycle Status Progress Bar, click here.
HUD Indicator Lights – Birth Control Status
There are two lights that indicate your birth control status. The D (Diaphragm) status light indicates the status of your diaphragm. It will be green when you are wearing it and red when you are not. The P (Pill) status light indicates the status of your pill. A red light indicates that you are not using the pill. A green light indicates that you are on the pill and it is fully effective. If you miss a pill or if you have just started using the pill, then the status light will be yellow. While the pill status light is yellow, there is a greater chance of getting pregnant.
Cycle Length Settings
Your cycle can be set for either 28 or 14 day cycles. When you change this setting, it will take effect during your next cycle, unless you reset your cycle using the Set Cycle button.
This setting controls how much your cycle varies. This can be adjusted from 0 to 3. With a variability of 0, your expected dates and actual dates are the same. With a variability of 3, your actual dates for ovulation and periods can be +/- 3 days from the expected dates. You will not know exactly when you are ovulating or when your period will actually happen. The HUD Indicator lights for your cycle status take into account your variability setting and will show the entire period where you may be fertile and will not report you overdue for your period until after the last possible day of your period.
Desire Risk/Desire Pregnancy/Desire Neutral Settings
This setting changes the types of emotes that the HUD generates. For the Desire Pregnancy setting, the odds of getting pregnant are slightly higher than the Desire Risk. The Desire Risk and Desire Neutral settings mirrors real life odds. The Desire Neutral uses real life odds, but the emotes are different from Desire Risk.
Blind Cycles Settings
This setting when turned on, will “grey out” your cycle progress bar. You will get a message when you start your period each cycle, but after you receive this message, it is up to you to remember where you are in your cycle. You can turn this setting off at any time and the cycle progress bar will return to normal.
You can turn off the non-system emotes using this setting. Your choices are Public, Private, and Mute. The Private setting will set the emotes so that only you can hear them. The Mute setting turns off the emotes.
Customizing Your Emotes
You have the ability to customize the orgasm emotes that came with your HUD. In the contents of your HUD, you will see 6 notecards that begin with “Default Emotes” and 6 notecards that begin with “User Emotes”. The User Emotes notecards can be modified with your own emotes. The notecards are broken out by the different possible Desire Settings and the time of the month (Risky / Non Risky).
Within each notecard, there are multiple lines that handle the different circumstances that can happen when using your HUD. Each emote begins with a code followed by the “=” character. These must remain unchanged (including the “=” character). To change the emote, just type it in. Do not add any “=” characters to your emote or anything following the “=” will be ignored. The emote must be on one line only. If you want the emote to cover multiple lines in chat, you can use the “/n” at the spot where you want the emote to move to a new line in chat.
There are several substitution strings that you can add to your emote to substitute names as they are used. These are detailed in the emote notecards.
If you make a mistake in customizing your emotes, you may copy and paste the emotes in the Default Emotes notecard to the User Emotes notecard to restore it to a working version.
Setting Your Due Date
Your HUD comes with an accessory called the Tantra Due Date Setter. Your HUD assumes a pregnancy of 30 days, but while you are pregnant, you can use the Tantra Due Date Setter to set your due date to an actual date. To do this, rez out the Tantra Due Date Setter and touch it. It will prompt you to enter your due date in the format of “/1 YYYY-MM-DD” in chat. The Tantra Due Date Setter will take care of updating your HUD with your due date.
You do not need to do this every month, but should only have to do it once after the start of each pregnancy. However, if your due date changes, you can do it as often as you need in order to keep your HUD synced with your due date.
Setting Up Auto Pregnancy Shape Changes
If you are using an RLV compatible viewer, you can set your HUD up to automatically switch between your pregnancy shapes automatically throughout your pregnancy. To use this feature, you must have RLV enabled, and have your own set of pregnancy shapes copied into the #RLV folder. For information on setting up RLV and your pregnancy shapes, see the “How do I set up Restrained Love (RLV)?” FAQ. Once you have your pregnancy shapes set up in the #RLV folder correctly, click the Settings button on your HUD and select the Preg Settings / Num of Shapes command. This command allows you to tell the Tantra Total Woman HUD how many pregnancy shapes you have (not including your default regular shape).
You can toggle the auto shape feature on and off with the Settings / Preg Settings command.
Once everything is set up, when you become pregnant, starting after your missed period, the Tantra Total Woman HUD will automatically switch your shapes through out your pregnancy. If you change your due date, the HUD will recalculate which shape you should be wearing. In certain role playing circumstances, you may want to revert to a normal shape. You may switch to a non pregnant shape at any time, however, if you relog or take off and put back on the HUD, the HUD will put your pregnant shape back on.
Using RLV with the Tantra Total Woman HUD
The Tantra Total Woman HUD has several RLV-related features built into it. If you are using an RLV compatible viewer, you can lock your Tantra Total Woman HUD. Locking your Tantra Total Woman HUD is useful if you are a risk type role player. Once the HUD is locked, you cannot remove it without turning off RLV and relogging into SL. To lock your HUD, click the Settings button and select the RLV Settings / RLV Lock command from the menu.
Also, the Tantra Total Woman HUD is compatible with the Sassy’s Bad Day products, with more RLV products to follow soon. With RLV, your partner can partially take over your Tantra Total Woman HUD. When your partner has control of the HUD, he will be able to intercept the “Came Inside” menu and make the selection for you. However, the default setting on the Tantra Total Woman HUD is “Auto Deny”. This means that any request to take control of your HUD is denied. If you want to enable this feature, select the RLV Settings / RLV Permissions command. In this menu, you can set it to one of the following three options:
- Auto Deny – All attempts to take control of your HUD will be denied.
- Ask – You will be asked for permission each time someone attempts to take control of your HUD.
- Auto Accept – All attempts to take control of your HUD will be granted.
For more information on setting up RLV, please see the “How do I set up Restrained Love (RLV)?” FAQ.
Tantra Home Pregnancy Test
Your HUD comes with a Tantra Home Pregnancy Test accessory. To take the pregnancy test, just rez a copy of the test from your inventory. Once it has rezzed, touch the test and it will begin. You must be wearing your HUD during the test for it to work.
The test is not completely accurate until at least 5 days past your actual ovulation date. It doesn’t report false positives, so if it tells you that you are pregnant, it is correct. But it can report a false negative. Beginning with the day after ovulation, the odds of an accurate result increase each day.
Your HUD comes with a Tantra Condom HUD. These can be given out to anyone you want. For it to work, your partner must wear it during sex. The condom is not foolproof and can break. You will only know if the condom breaks once orgasm has occurred. The emote will indicate condom breakage.
Tantra Paternity Test
The Tantra Paternity Test is available as a separate product.
