So the Menu Bar at the very top of the screen under the SecondLife Dialog Handle is missing? If you can not see the [ Me   Communicate   World   Build   Help ] menu bar you may have a borked installation. This happens when the configuration XML files stored in the appdata areas become compromised. Perform a Clean Install [instructions at the bottom of this thread] and try again.

In regards to Maturity settings, usually the following instructions get your various Access levels established:

Since you registered with your real life information and birth date, all you need to do that is age related is to make sure you have selected the level of information you are willing to see in all these locations:

1) In the Viewer General Tab [ G ] [ M ] [ A ] - Check the desired options

2) In the Viewer [Ctr'-M] World Map Events: [ G ] [ M ] [ A ] - Check the desired options

3) In the in-world Search Window - Perform any search then check the desired viewing levels in the upper left area of the search window - [ G ] [ M ] [ A ]

4) In the MarketPlace click on the Show maturity levels Down Arrow and select the desired viewing options phrase. {Note: I find it interesting that you can select Adult Only as one of the options here}

Additional Note: Do understand that many Adult venues may also impose a "How Long Has the Avatar Been Created" restriction. This is to keep out griefers and in some cases, new persons [ noobies ] from these areas.

Carry on and have fun! :D
