YIFF is a Second Life furry community Sim.

YIFF is a very popular destination for Second Life furries, and holds one of the top 3 furry clubs rankings on the grid,[1] and for years ranked #1 on average. YIFF is the premiere furry event destination, often playing exclusive host to numerous top and popular furry avatar creator's release events.


YIFF Club is a social hangout for bringing furries together to meet and greet with a more adult approach in mind. It welcomes all through it's doors regardless of their species, gender, and sexual orientation.

YIFF was founded and built on October 24, 2011, by Leopard Adored, three years after he founded the IYC (International Yiff Center), under the name TP Fizzle, along with co-founder SorrowDragon Resident as YIFF's general manager, who was then also owner and manager of the Sergal Lounge hangout.

Within 3 weeks of opening it's doors to the public, YIFF has become the first and only furry club to grow to reach over 25,000 in traffic such a short time span, and by its 2nd month it became one of the top three Furry clubs, holding the #1 top spot consecutively month after month from February 2012 to February 2013 until stricken with a serious server simulation glitch which was patched by Linden Lab on June 2013.
