The American Crusade Against Porn

About the author: Allison Leigh is a pornographer, producer, polyamorist, and professional kinkster. When sexuality is business, business is fun! 

Guns, God, and “good ol’ boys” – the United States evokes a certain image. With liberal coasts divided by a broad band of socially conservative states, the US has a reputation for being the redneck “man’s man” of the world; so why are so many states trying to curtail pornography? In this age where over 30 percent of data transmitted over the internet is adult entertainment, what effect would a moratorium on erotic images and videos have?

In a voice vote that has attracted much scrutiny, the Florida House of Representatives passed a resolution recently declaring porn a “public health risk” that “states a need for education, research and policy changes to protect Floridians, especially teenagers, from pornography.” It stands out in a bleak contrast to the same House’s overwhelming “no” to an assault rifle ban, a decision that was debated for a brief three minutes earlier that session, just days after a shooting at a high school in Broward, Florida that took 17 lives. Surely guns are more of a threat to public health than erotica?

Florida’s decision is not without precedent. In April of 2016, Utah passed a similar resolution through their legislature, and before that, the conservative state created the position widely referred to as a “Porn Czar” to oversee complaints and issues arising from erotic entertainment. Both Florida and Utah’s non binding resolutions could be considered challenges to the First Amendment decision reached in 1973’s Miller v. California, in which the Supreme Court found that erotic materials could only be restricted if they met three requirements applying community standards of offensiveness, with final say being given to the courts to determine if the work lacks “serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value.”

Attorney General candidate and Florida Representative Ross Spano (R) said, “there is research that finds a connection between pornography use and mental and physical illnesses, forming and maintaining intimate relationships and deviant sexual behavior.” However, psychologists working in the field disagree; Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health associate professor Eric Schrimshaw told CNN that “...Evidence also suggests that it is not pornography in general that may be correlated with potential negative outcomes.”

Scapegoating porn and “porn addiction” as a catch-all for intimacy problems has become a commonplace topic amongst moral conservatives. However, the stigma against enjoying adult entertainment may prove to be far more harmful to the psyche. Research performed by Joshua Grubbs of Case Western shows that “seeing oneself as a porn addict is predicted not by how much porn one views, but by the degree of religiosity and moral attitudes towards sex.” Now, Grubbs has published explosive follow-up research, demonstrating that believing oneself is addicted to porn actually causes pain and psychological problems, in contrast to the idea that identifying as a porn addict is a step on the road to recovery.

Sexuality is an integral part of the human experience, and enjoyment of eroticism is a healthy part of that. Far from simply being a way to privately blow off steam, studies suggest that viewing erotic materials leads to increased arousability and higher sex drive throughout life, a fact that should surprise exactly no one who watches porn. 40 million Americans are self-described pornography users; in reality the number is likely far higher, skewed by social stigma against the habit. Erotica has been a part of human life since the Paleolithic era, and puritanical edicts like the ones from Florida and Utah do nothing for public health, save to damage our collective sexual psyche.

The MetArt 50+ Club: Genevieve Gandi

Stunning blue-eyed blonde Genevieve Gandi projects so much fun and personality in her photosets that it’s no surprise she’s become a member of our prestigious MetArt 50+ Club, models so popular they’ve been featured at least fifty times here. Her delightful demeanor and fabulous body make every new viewing of her a special event.

GENEVIEVE GANDI: breathtaking blonde bombshell (50 appearances)

The sexy Russian babe made her MetArt debut at the age of 19, on November 6, 2013, in a “Presenting” photoset by Matiss. At this time she was known as Erica, adopting the name Genevieve in March 2015. She is still very much an active model, her fiftieth set having been published just a few days ago. To date the tall, slender beauty has worked with three artists: Matiss 38 times, Leonardo 11, and Koenart 1, and all her appearances have been solo. Her photosets are regularly rated over 9, with an impressive seven appearances scoring 9.3. 

Genevieve is currently ranked #14, with a rating of 9.1, based on 3,336 ratings. She has been viewed 195,360 times, and is followed by 4,117 members at the time of writing. She has been featured on several other sites in the MetArt Network: SexArt, MetArt X, The Life Erotic, Errotica Archives, Erotic Beauty, Domai and Goddess Nudes.

So what is it that makes Genevieve so special? Well, she’s undeniably gorgeous, with an athletic figure, an ass to die for, beautiful eyes and terrific breasts highlighted by sexy tan lines. She’s elegant and self-assured, but playful too; perfect girlfriend material, in other words! I interviewed her for our blog back in September 2016 and I was struck by her sweetness and charm as she talked about inner beauty, passion, ambitions, and wanting to take care of her family. You can read the full interview here

Gorgeous and talented, there’s no doubt Genevieve has an exciting future in store, and we look forward to seeing much more of her on MetArt.

New MetArt model of the month: March 2018

Spring is in the air, the sap is rising, and thoughts naturally turn to sex – especially when there are so many gorgeous naked girls to enjoy! March 2018 has been a fine month for new models, with eleven stunning babes making their debut appearance – and if you’re wondering who the eleventh is, look out for Jenifer Love from Cassandra Keyes tomorrow! It’s not easy to choose favorites from such a lovely selection, but here’s my personal – and entirely subjective – pick of the top three new MetArt models of the month:

Laura Lynn photographed by Koenart. Presented March 1.

A smiling cutie with adorable girl-next-door appeal, 19-year-old Latvian sweetheart Laura Lynn brought a whole bunch of positive energy to get the month off to a fun start. The blue-eyed brunette looked irresistible in her blue and peach lace bra and panties that clung to her perfect ass like a second skin. A fresh-faced, dimpled delight.

 

Valencia photographed by Matiss. Presented March 27.

Russian beauty Valencia is tall and slender, with an athletic figure and perfect-handful breasts, highlighted by her sexy tan lines. The brown-eyed 18-year-old brunette revealed that she loves flowers, dreaming of a wonderful winter roof garden, and enjoys traveling. That flirtatious look suggests seeing the world with her would be a very pleasurable experience…

Faina Bona photographed by Tora Ness. Presented March 30.

Blue-eyed blonde Faina Bona is an irresistible little bundle of naughtiness, an 18-year-old Belarusian babe with freckles and an enchanting smile. Grabbing the attention in nothing but semi-transparent white lingerie, the sassy sex kitten soon got naked to show off her lovely small breasts with wide pink areolae, sweet shaved pussy and sensational ass. It’s a memorable debut, and hopefully the first of many appearances.

Who was your favorite new MetArt model of March 2018?

The sweet taste of Mila

Erotic fiction inspired by Mila I in “Rochita

I was spending a few days at my beach house down on the coast. It was great to get away from work and enjoy the late summer weather and the cool ocean breeze. I did some fishing and running, and I was looking forward to some crabbing. At the market, I picked up some supplies and got back in time to see the sunset. I put a pizza in the oven and sat on the deck as the sun went down, watching the birds on the beach.

“Hello, you must be my neighbor,” I heard a lovely voice say in an interesting accent. A startlingly pretty blonde poked her face over the rail of the deck. She introduced herself as Mila, and I invited her to join me for a drink. She had rented the place next door, and we had some wine and the pizza as we chatted. She was very attractive, tall and slim but with lovely curves, and gorgeous long legs.

“So what is this crabbing you are doing in the morning?” she asked.

“Nothing crazy; I get a dinghy for the day, take along a cooler and a bucket, drop in all my pots and wait for the Dungies to come strolling in!”

“Excuse me; a dinghy? Dungies?” she asked with a crooked smile.

“The dinghy is the boat, and Dungies are the Dungeness crabs. You should come!”

“And what do we do with these ‘Dungies’ we catch? Eat them?”

“Oh yes! Delicious! Like nothing you have ever had. If we get any. If not, we drink beer!”

“Well then, I will see you in the morning, Greg.”

She stood up and planted the most delicious kiss on me, lips soft as silk, and then left. Watching Mila walk back to her place in her short, tight dress was something to remember.

The next morning we rode down to the dock in my truck, loaded up the boat and shoved off. The day was beautiful, and we baited and dropped in a dozen pots.

Over a couple beers, Mila told me she loved being in the US because it was less ‘uptight’ than the Ukraine. When I asked what she meant, she was vague, but I got the impression people didn’t approve of her lifestyle. Intriguing.

We caught enough crabs for dinner and headed back, sandy and toasted by the sun. Mila popped back next door to shower, while I got in the kitchen, put the pot on to boil and took a quick shower myself. I had just uncorked some chardonnay when Mila came in from the deck like a vision, in a sexy silk robe that showed off her amazing legs.

We sat on the deck and dined on salad, crusty French bread and cracked crab drizzled in warm garlic butter, all washed down with white wine in the sunset breeze. That breeze off the waves was slightly chilly so we snuggled close and soon were making out, me sucking on her sweet lips. My curious fingers found Mila was indeed wearing nothing under her light robe, and her breasts were warm under my hands, nipples firming up when rolled between thumb and fingers, and even more when licked and sucked between my lips. Her body felt great, skin so supple and soft. She spread her legs for me and my fingers found her slit, buttery with arousal, hairless and smooth.

I stroked her, rotating my fingers around the bud of her clit. Mila closed her eyes and let the pleasure wash over her. Her slippery essence was copious and I lavished it all around her, rolling her clitoris in my fingertips and then tapping lightly, stroking and circling. Her breathing grew raspy and deep. I felt her flush in the cool evening and knew she was close so I backed off, sucking on her tongue and squeezing her breasts, just brushing the areolae, stimulating them. She pushed my hand lower, sliding my knuckles over her slippery lips. She rocked her hips up to meet me, asking for more. I slid two fingers into her depths, curled them up and flicked through her folds inside. She was biting her lip and breathing deep, her cheeks turning pink, and seemed close again. She had both hands on mine, forcing my fingers inside her. She arched her back and seemed on the verge of orgasm.

“Whoa there, Mila. Not yet, baby.”

“Greg, you bastard! What are you doing?” Her eyes were wild.

“Just wait.” I grasped her slim waist and planted her cute ass on the table right in front of me. I looked up into her eyes. “You can let go now, Mila. Just cum for me,” and I pressed my face between her thighs and tasted her, rolling her puffy folds with my tongue and sucking her wet lips between mine, feeling them quiver.

She leaned back on her elbows and sighed, waiting for it to happen, and I licked her deep, flicking her hot clit and feeling her orgasm, her legs shivering. She moaned urgently and I pressed on, lavishing her wetness with nips and licks, holding her hips, grinding her pubic mound and clit, sending her over the edge again. Her body bucked, back arching as her thighs squeezed my face, coating me with a gush of her essence, sweet and womanly.

And then I went for it again, slipping my fingers inside to find her G-spot and softly massage it while flicking her folds with my tongue. Mila fell on one side, convulsing in orgasm, dishes clattering to the deck.

We stopped for a moment, catching our breath, and Mila moved into my lap, a hand on my package. She looked up with a grin, happy that I was ready. Together we got my shorts off and she stroked my shaft, then guided me inside her in one go, incredibly tight and hot, but slick with her arousal.

She whispered, “Let me do this.” Her hips rolled and her pussy squeezed, wringing jolts of hot pleasure from me. I got all tingly and warm in the cool evening air while Mila humped me. I held her ass tight with both hands and thrust as deep as I could, my cock feeling huge in her tightness. I won't be long, I thought. Then she grinned and slowed it down, milking my shaft so slowly, eyes locked right on mine, biting her lip and diddling herself while slow-bouncing on my aching joint.

She rocked on me, shaking as she came on my cock, and then I thrust hard, feeling jolts of pleasure shoot up my spine. I emptied my balls in several long pulses, Mila hot and sticky inside now.

It was dark, the salty evening breeze finding our exposed skin, but we were warm in each other’s arms, my flesh still firm inside Mila. I had a feeling the week would pass quickly, with such delicious company…

The MetArt 50+ Club: Andrea C

An erotic superstar from the archives, stunning blonde Andrea C is still considered one of MetArt’s all-time top models over a decade after her retirement, and a treasured member of our MetArt 50+ Club, girls so popular they have been featured over fifty times during their modeling career.

ANDREA C: sensational blonde bombshell (72 appearances)

Ukrainian beauty Andrea made her debut on July 22, 2002 at the age of 18, in a photoset by Voronin; and unlike most of our models, who tend to work with several different artists, she shot only with Voronin for her 60 featured photosets and 12 videos. While it has been noted previously that back in those days photosets were often split into several segments, it is still an impressive achievement for any model. MetArt had only existed for a short while, and at her debut, Andrea was only the second model Voronin – now a veteran with over 900 galleries – had ever posted. Two of her movies and 16 photosets were girl-girl, with Sharon E, Katya E, and fellow 50+ member Inna Q. In March 2004 Andrea became the first MetArt model to reach 50 appearances. Her final appearance was on February 1, 2006, in “Gravius.”

Not surprisingly for a model so long retired, Andrea has dropped in the rankings, but still has a rating of 8.15 based on 3,230 votes, with 112,341 views, and is followed by 1,765 members. Back when she was actively modeling she was extremely popular, with an average of two or three appearances a month. Member generated tags for her include “awesome beauty,” “dream girl” and “perfection,” as befits this stunning, freckle-faced girl next door of all our fantasies.

Andrea’s only other appearance on the Network was in three photosets by Voronin on Erotic Beauty in 2005; she was certainly the quintessential MetArt model. Her allure is perhaps best captured in her movies, which though they have a somewhat ‘vintage’ charm now, convey the natural loveliness of a beautiful, athletic girl with small, sexy breasts, a perfect bottom, and a delightfully pretty face. As our artist Rylsky commented on her profile page: “LEGEND”!

Sexy MetArt star Bambi Joli tells all…

Sultry beauty Bambi Joli has that indefinable star quality that makes you look, and look again, whenever she appears. The slender sweetheart has an exotic appeal, all long legs, high cheekbones and hypnotic brown eyes; her charismatic presence has led to some memorable movies on our sister sites SexArt, Viv Thomas and The Life Erotic. Here at MetArt, the brunette bombshell takes center stage in two solo photosets to date, shot by Erro, whose elegant, glamorous style showcases her leggy allure admirably. Here’s a chance to learn a little more…

Bambi, please tell us about yourself.

BJ: Bonjour, my name is Bambi and I’m 25 years old. I don't have a specific place of residence to be honest, because with such a beautiful line of work as I have, I travel around the world a lot. And I really love it. I enjoy creating something new, like my own collection of lingerie. Also I enjoy reading my favorite authors: Ernest Hemingway, Oscar Wilde, Sylvia Plath and so on. My favorite music is mostly French, also I love to listen to ambient music. And I have a beautiful Ragdoll cat, with big blue eyes, and chic fluffy fur. I'm a big cat lover.

What inspired you to get into nude modeling?

BJ: Well, maybe it’s because I'm a painter, with the big heart of a person who loves art and performance. For me it is very interesting to play in the adult industry, because I want to show people the merging of two bodies, a light touch to the delicate parts of a partner, the game of emotion and passion. I have been in the industry for two years now.

What is your favorite thing about your appearance?

BJ: I love everything about myself! I really try to devote a lot of time to sports, and I especially love yoga. This allows you to not only look good but also feel relaxed.

How would you describe your personality? 

BJ: Romantic, with notes of violent passion inside. 

Are you more dominant or more submissive? 

BJ: It all depends on the mood! But mostly I prefer to be submissive.

Did you ever have sex with a girl in your personal life before you started to make movies?

BJ: No, never; I'm straight. I love guys, because I love the feeling when he can embrace you with his powerful hands and make you feel safe.

What type of man do you like – handsome, funny, romantic?

BJ: I think that he should contain all these qualities, but the most important thing is your attitude towards each other. Equality, love and a big cock, haha!

What is your favorite position?

BJ: Downward Dog, the Rider, and the Lotus Blossom.

What turns you on? 

BJ: Whispering sweet words from a romance novel in my ear.

Where is the most unusual place you’ve ever had sex? Have you ever done it in a public place?

BJ: Well yeah, I had sex in a cathedral. Long story, sweet memories.

Do you like to masturbate?

BJ: Yes I do. Using my fingers is my favorite way.

What is your favorite sexual fantasy?

BJ: Bondage.

Have you ever had a threesome? 

BJ: No, never.

Did you ever try anything really naughty?

BJ: Yes, but I'm too shy to speak about it. Hope you understand!

What are your ambitions?

BJ: Well the first is that I want to realize myself as a person. That's the most important thing for me. Because I know that many people try to find themselves all their lives, but I feel that I am on the right path. And also to get stability. Family, kids – that's really what I want.

Is there anything you would like to tell your fans?

BJ: Thanks a lot to all of you! Because your support, love, all your comments, all your ideas and wishes really mean a lot to me. Thanks to you, I have achieved a great deal. Know that I really appreciate each of you and will try to continue to please you with my work. Lots of love and kisses xoxo

New MetArt model of the month: February 2018

It’s traditionally the month of love, and there’s no doubt you will love the gorgeous new models who made their MetArt debut in February 2018! Six sensational sweethearts graced us with their first appearance, all fresh-faced newbies with their own unique charms, each one eager to share their natural sexuality with you. Here’s my personal – and entirely subjective – pick of the top three new MetArt models of the month:

Gracia photographed by Matiss. Presented February 1.

Stunning green-eyed blonde Gracia started the month in incredible style, her dazzling smile and movie star looks mesmerizing. As one member remarked, “She has a face that belongs on the cover of a glamour magazine… and an ass that belongs on my face!” The 21-year-old Russian beauty showed off her amazing bubble butt and sweet small breasts, as she revealed that she’d walk down the street in nothing but her sexy lingerie if she could. Guaranteed to stop traffic…

Angel Constance photographed by Cassandra Keyes. Presented February 8.

A Canadian cutie of Indian heritage, 23-year-old Angel Constance has beautiful brown eyes, silky skin and a sultry demeanor that hints at a very naughty nature. Taking off her bikini on the beach to bare her perky perfect-handful breasts with dark areolae and stiff nipples, hot pussy with its neatly trimmed bush, and nicely-rounded ass, she’s a delicious delicacy we hope to see much more of.

Scarlett Sage photographed by Charles Lightfoot. Presented February 14.

The perfect gift for Valentine’s Day, all-American blonde Scarlett Sage looked irresistible in her sexy red lingerie as she sampled a box of chocolates from an admirer. Playful and bubbly, with wonderful puffy nipples, the 20-year-old green-eyed sweetheart giggled and flirted as she flaunted her fantastic ass. The video, over on MetArt X, gets even hotter as she talks dirty to her unseen lover on the phone and lets her fingers explore her juicy pussy. It’s a must see.

Who was your favorite new MetArt model of February 2018?

The MetArt 50+ Club: Michelle H

Stunning redhead Michelle H is one of our most popular models, and a welcome new member of our MetArt 50+ Club, girls so in demand they have been featured at least 50 times during their modeling career. The blue-eyed Ukrainian beauty is not only a sensational model, with a gorgeous face and fantastic body, but as her alter ego Red Fox has also made a splash as a talented and inventive director.

MICHELLE H: sultry sweetheart (51 appearances)

Michelle made her debut appearance at the age of 18 on November 27, 2011, in a “Presenting” photoset by Leonardo. Her mesmerizing eyes, simmering sensuality and incredible figure made her an instant favorite, and to date she has been featured 51 times, and worked with 12 different artists: Koenart 27, Rylsky 4, Karl Sirmi 4, Leonardo 3, Flora 3, Luca Helios 2, Dave Lee 2, Goncharov 2, Max Asolo 1, Arkisi 1, Alex Iskan 1, and Red Fox herself 1. Four of her appearances are girl-girl (three with fellow redhead Mia Solis, and one with Patritcy A); and four are movies, of which “Dinida” marked her directorial debut as Red Fox on Feb 2, 2016. Her highest rated appearances are “Lovande,” “Kiesu,” “Fugite,””Vanola,” and “Nattia,” all rated 9.2.

At the time of writing, Michelle is rated #48, with a rating of 9.15 based on 3,943 votes, with 253,598 views and 5,111 followers.

She has appeared on many other sites in the Network: The Life Erotic, Errotica Archives, Rylsky Art, Eternal Desire; and on Domai, Goddess Nudes, and Erotic Beauty as Nalla. Most notably, she has starred in several very hot girl-girl movies on Viv Thomas, working with director Alis Locanta; while on SexArt she is a major star, with 27 photosets to date, three girl-girl movies (one with top model Nancy A and one with Sybil A) and an unforgettable boy-girl movie, “The Port.”

I was lucky enough to meet Michelle on location with Alis Locanta in Spain, and I was bowled over by her sweet personality and ethereal looks; in the flesh she has a delicate glow about her, with lovely pale skin and freckles. She’s a sultry goddess, but with a gorgeous smile that makes her altogether more approachable. And then, there’s that stunning figure, with big, beautiful natural breasts, and a perfect ass. It’s not just her looks that have made her so successful though; she’s a smart and ambitious girl, who brings her unique vision to her own movies.

We are blessed with many talented female directors throughout the MetArt Network, but Michelle is the only one who is still active as a model for other artists while also shooting her own movies – and sometimes appearing in them herself. Her work as Red Fox here on MetArt, on MetArt X, and particularly her kinky, fetish flavored films on The Life Erotic, suggest she is a creative force to be reckoned with. Here’s hoping she’ll be appearing on both sides of the camera for a long time to come.

The key to desire: how to unlock this life-enhancing drive

About the author: Allison Leigh is a pornographer, producer, polyamorist, and professional kinkster. When sexuality is business, business is fun! 

The fluttering in your stomach, the tightness in your chest, the heat between your legs – sexual arousal is a nearly universal experience amongst humankind. We feel it when we crave our partners, strangers, even celebrities. For some of us, the desire is overwhelming; for others, barely a note in the margins. Where do these feelings come from? What do we do when it changes?

Our sexuality can play a major role in our quality of life and decision-making processes. As sexual desire ebbs and flows, new dilemmas come with it. Our responses vary – we masturbate, we have promiscuous sex (or avoid sex altogether), we watch porn, we cheat. A crucial key to understanding human sexuality lies in discovering where the desire for sex comes from, and if it can be controlled.

Outside of little blue pills, most advice regarding desire centers around trying to stimulate or repress the emotional state, and pays little attention to what ignites it. According to the ubiquitous mid-century sex study by Masters and Johnson, sexual encounters begin with sexual desire, which then leads to partner-seeking and sexual arousal. However, a University of Amsterdam study from 2004 indicates that we respond physically to highly sexual visuals before our mind even engages with them – meaning that sexual arousal actually precedes sexual desire, instead of the other way around. Sexual desire may be the cognitive overlay we place on top of what our body is already feeling.

Researchers Ellen Laan, Stephanie Both, Walter Everaerd and Mark Spiering examined college students’ physical responses to sexual images, and compared them with self-reported feelings of desire as well as sexual activity following exposure to these images. They contrasted these findings with a control group that was shown neutral images.

Through their series of studies, they found that the body’s entire motor system ignites when shown sexual images. The more intense the visual, the more intense the spinal tendinous impulses they observed.  Further, these reactions occurred with no regard to whether the sexual material was consciously recognized. Our bodies are primed for sexual action before our minds have even considered being turned on. Their findings matched what researchers have been finding true in other aspects of our lives – that our brains are awakened to what needs to happen before we are conscious of wanting to do anything.

This means that the key to awakening a lower sex drive is likely increasing arousability – the physical cues that signal us to feel desire. Turning aside from the conventional wisdom of placing the root of the problem on a lack of sexy thoughts, perhaps the focus should instead be on creating the physical, mental, and emotional environment necessary for sexuality to thrive.

So how do we proceed? When sexual desire no longer comes unbidden, how do we summon it? The answer will vary for everyone, but one simple solution may be right there in the research – look at erotica! Porn doesn’t have to be an immediate precursor to sexual activity. Making sexuality and sensuality a part of daily life pushes your body’s sexual responses to stay active. Combined with creating a safe atmosphere for sexuality, enjoying erotic visuals alone or with a partner will help keep sexual arousal – and therefore sexual desire – a hot and fulfilling part of your life. Naturally, MetArt is thrilled to play a role in such a vital and life-enhancing process.

Top MetArt model Gloria Sol shares her hot fantasy with you!

Stunning erotic model Gloria Sol became an instant fan favorite when she made her debut appearance in early 2016, and after twenty photosets and two movies, members are still begging for more. The gorgeous Ukrainian brunette has a beautiful face and flawless body, with perfect, naturally big breasts and an ass to die for. No wonder she hasn’t left our top ten since her debut. I have to confess I’m as besotted with this absolute goddess as the rest of you, and was delighted to get the opportunity to find out more about her…

Gloria, please tell us about yourself.

GS: I am 23 years old, and I am from Ukraine. Right now, I live between Thailand, Kiev and Germany. I am constantly traveling. I enjoy exercising, keeping fit and also hiking in nature. I like classic rock and anything pop. I have no pets as my lifestyle won’t allow it,  but I love dogs! And cats.

What inspired you to get into nude modeling?

GS: I was inspired by seeing some classic works, sculpture and fine art – Greek art, mostly. I like photography a lot too, so I ended up posing for some artists in the Ukraine, Italy and Paris at the beginning of my career, and now I shoot full time as an erotic and fine art model.

What is your favorite thing about your appearance?

GS: Oh, I love my body shape and that I am very petite. I love my boobs, I think they are the perfect size, and I also like my feet. I work out every day and I also started to practice yoga.

Do you enjoy making movies?

GS: I do, though it depends on the artist and script. Sometimes I will embrace a project as I love the idea, but sometimes I just can’t see me as the subject so I will politely decline.

Do you like to watch your own movies?

GS: No! I get very shy. I know I did a great job as I can move very well and have a great mix of expressions, but I generally don’t watch my movies. I haven’t done a lot actually. Basically just soft, glamorous videos.

How would you describe your personality?

GS: I am bubbly but very professional. I take my work very seriously. I am a straightforward person, which helps a lot.

Are you a romantic?

GS: Honestly, no. I like to be pampered, obviously, but I am very independent and I rely on myself for a living, so I am generally not romantic and more of a practical person.

Are you an exhibitionist?

GS: Yes, I am. I love to be watched and photographed and I love to be desired. It feels good to work as a model. I am also a nudist and I like to be naked all the time. I hate to have to wear a bra, I think they’re pretty but never comfortable. I like cotton undies if I have to wear something.

Do you have a high sex drive?

GS: I would say I like sex like anybody else. I am more driven by a voyeuristic nature, and that’s sex driven anyway.

Are you more dominant or submissive?

GS: As much as I am dominant in life, business and so on, I’m more submissive sexually…

Are you bisexual?

GS: I don’t know!

What kind of man do you like?

GS: Funny, no doubt about it. I also like intelligent guys and uncomplicated ones. Easy going people. I have enough drama on my own. I love creative men. I love spontaneous, fun, kinky and daring men.

What turns you on?

GS: A lot of things turn me on! Depends on the situation. Sometimes watching people, sometimes being watched…

Where is the most unusual place you’ve ever had sex?

GS: I can’t divulge. But it was overrated. I could get in trouble by sharing it here! I have done it in a public place; I was going for a job interview some years ago, I had just turned 18 and I remember my boyfriend was giving me a ride to the place I was going to be interviewed. I was wearing a very cute outfit and he got turned on. I told him I couldn’t do anything as I had the interview but… nothing would stop him! We ended up having sex in the parking lot of the company’s building and after that I went to the interview… still sweaty! I got the job!

Do you like to masturbate?

GS: Yes, I use toys. I love toys. I also use my fingers. When in Paris I use my bidet.

What is your favorite sexual fantasy?

GS: I dream about being in a very remote place, like an island where everybody is naked, and at night a big fire is set on the beach and people can go there to swim at night and massage each other. At some point, I have my eyes covered and I have to trust these people that will take me on a boat to a secret spot and I know absolutely nothing about where they will take me but I go anyway. I can feel many hands touching my entire body, but I can’t see anything. My heart is beating really fast. I hear some voices but I can’t understand the language. I also feel some wet things like tongues licking me and someone is holding my hands and taking me to a room. It’s warm there and cozy and I can hear many voices but they are mostly like sexual sounds. At this point I am breathing very intensely and I can touch a chair where I am being positioned with my knees and hands down and it’s not really a chair, it’s like a table with handles and I am on my hands and knees, with my ass up high... fully exposed. I feel people breathing around me and whispering in my ears and pulling my hair... and it hurts. I am so excited at this point that I start to pee all over myself and the table. I feel someone licking my legs where the pee is running free. I am completely turned on and I can feel a woman next to me as her nipples touch my face and I also can smell her armpits… It smells very sexy, like sweet sweaty. At this point I am also very, very turned on so I can’t really relax and well, this fantasy goes on and on and on…

Have you ever had a threesome?

GS: Yes. It was hot… I was actually sleeping over at a friend’s place, we were addicted to a series and spent all weekend watching all the episodes. I wasn’t expecting anything but another friend stopped by and it was my friend’s ex and they’re still great friends. We were introduced and I instantly felt attracted but never said anything. So the “friend” decided to stay over too and we decided to spend the weekend just watching the series and having some laughs and it was late at night when someone suggested the “truth or dare” game. I wasn’t wearing any panties but I had my shorts on and I also did not have a bra on, as who would wear a bra at your best friend’s home, right? So, it started a little awkward as it was cold and he asked me if I was turned on, looking at my boobs, and I instantly blushed. We started playing and let’s say also that I wanted to avoid sharing a lot of “truths” so I did more dares, and the first dare was to suck my friend’s tongue. It was hot and wet. We ended up doing many dares together and spending a hot and unforgettable night. You can imagine the rest!

Did you ever try anything really naughty?

GS: Mmmm… Yes! Yes! Yes! Many times… I like to be naughty!

What are your ambitions?

GS: My ambitions are normal, I would like to work a lot and make enough money to support a great lifestyle. I love traveling and I like good things, well-made and well-designed things. I like eating very well, organic and healthy food. I like taking care of my body. A good house, a summer cottage, being able to wake up at the time I decide – it’s a big thing – and also obviously being able to support my family.

Is there anything else you would like to tell your fans?

GS: I have some news! I will be on the cover of Goodies Magazine, it’s a limited edition magazine created by a team from LA that travels the world creating erotic nude art, the images are shot by Willow Art and I’m very excited about the magazine coming out. I am also traveling to Greece in April and May to shoot. My agent Penelope organizes all my shoots and my fans communicate with her more than with me as I can’t really answer all requests and that’s why I have Penny.

I’d love for my fans to follow me on twitter and Instagram, and on MetArt, MetArt X and SexArt, of course!
