In a silent way...

Brionie W: Presenting, by Sebastian Michael, first nudes, subtle erotica

This series is photographer Sebastian Michael's second contribution to MetArt, and the first I've had the privilege of examining. It also marks the arrival of a new model, Belgium-born Brionie W. On top of all that, this set distinguishes itself by the naturalistic, understated, almost documentary quality of the photography, and by the pensive, thoughtful mood expressed throughout by the model.

The spoken instruction "smile!" has preceded untold millions of photographs, but Brionie is having none of it. In what might well be her bedroom, clad only in a bath towel, her face is impassive, her mood reflective, as if lost in thought. The look, her mood, is altogether involving. I'd go so far as to say it's fascinating. What is she thinking of? A lover? Some far away land? One is tempted to offer a penny for her thoughts, but I doubt she'd share her inner secrets for so small an amount.

The second half of the series finds Brionie outside. Here there is more "modeling," but still the quiet mood. And then - only in shots #0127 and #0130 - a smile. Definitely worth waiting for. As will be Brionie's next appearance here. I hope she doesn't make us wait too long.


Faux fur/genuine heat...

Olya Q: Limik, by Leonardo, stylish erotic photo art, hot blondeThis set has a real old time "pin-up" flavor, to my eyes, at any rate. And that seems slightly odd because Olya Q. has such a modern look. But such is the magic of carefully conceived, artfully executed erotic photography. A tip of the MetArt blogger's hat - it's more of a cap, actually - to learned lensman Leonardo. Well done, sir!

And how about Olya, herself? In a perfect world, this petite treat could put every doctor in the breast "enhancement" business out of work. Even those of us who prefer a model with more generous endowments cannot deny that Olya packs a stunning erotic punch. In her case less is most certainly more, and then some!

Shot #0034 is a perfect illustration of what I mean by the "pin-up" quality I first mentioned. #0055 is a good example of Olya doing more with less. And perhaps the ultimate testament to this model's erotic impact can be found in #0082. In this image we don't even get a glimpse of her "naughty bits," and yet Olya's sex appeal is overt and abundant. Oh, yes!

Parting thought: What do you suppose a "Limik" is? I have no idea, whatsoever. Can a member clue me in?


Go with the glow...

Sharon D: Possible, by Antonio Clemens, feet, footwear, artistic erotica

This beauty, Sharon D., really radiates a bright, sunny energy. And when she smiles and looks right into the camera it's as if she's shining a lovely light directly at the viewer. Photographer Antonio Clemens seems to understand Sharon's gift and captures it in a variety of interesting ways. He takes particular care with the lighting in many shots and the subtle sheen on Sharon's skin adds dimension and real impact.

While effort has certainly been made to convey Sharon's personality, there are additional visual components of this series, some subtle, some relatively obvious. Those readers with an interest in foxy female feet and high fashion footwear, for example, will have their appetites whetted and, I dare say, satisfied by many of the shoe-centric shots in this set.

Sharon can appear mild and she can seem wild. She can pose like a pro and then appear completely spontaneous. In this set, and in life, one hopes, with Sharon, everything is "Possible!"


On the waterfront...

Ennie A & Veronique A: Ibiza, by Halik, outdoor nudity, 2-girl eroticaTake the Spanish sunshine, some cool blue Mediterranean sea, add two bikini-clad beauties - a blonde and a brunette will make for a nice contrast - apply glistening oil to skin as needed, and photograph until nude. This is the recipe Halik has employed to cook up "Ibiza," starring Ennie A. and Veronique A., and it is a mouthwatering confection, without doubt.

Both models have had much MetArt experience and it's clear they're enjoying their day by the bay. Boaters in the background of these shots must have enjoyed a little unexpected spectating, as well.

If the beach they're on had been of soft sand (instead of jagged rocks) perhaps this tempting twosome could have taken the opportunity to share an even greater level of intimacy.

What would you suggest for Ennie and Veronique's next session together?


In the heat of the...

Night A: Presenting, by Rylsky, wet, explicit, hot sexual art photographyMy challenge, the challenge I face every time I sit down to write another post for the MetArt blog, is to find something noteworthy about the set at hand, to provide insight to the reading membership, and to suggest approaches to MetArt that enrich the experience. I'm always looking for a "hook" to pull the reader in.

Before I'd even glanced at this set I thought I had a hook. The cover image was dark, the model's name was Night, it seemed an angle worth exploring. Light and shadow, the romance and mystery of darkness, waking life versus the dream state - and then I looked at the set.

Wow. Pure sex. Hot, radiant, moist - make that wet - sex. All my narrative devices and cold, analytic detachment was blow away by the raw power of Night's unabashed sexuality. There are quiet moments here, there is sweetness. But it's the sex that makes this "Night" so unforgettable.

I know what my favorite shots in this collection are - what are yours? And why?


Easy, effortless, excellence...

Mila I: Stirred, by Goncharov, top model, blonde, satisfying erotica

Going into this set I was well aware that the subject, Mila, is the reigning #1 Top Model at MetArt. Consequently, I devoted more time to studying the cover of this series than I typically do. There was something about Mila's face, and the way she held herself that drew me in - this model has star quality, and it's very nearly magnetic and magical.

The conclusions I reached while examining the cover shot were confirmed when I'd had a chance to enjoy the complete set. Mila has a self-assured, self-confident persona, but she never pushes too hard, there's an ease, a relaxed air about her that is every bit as alluring as her slim physique and fabulous facial features.

With 25 sets to her credit, Mila is a seasoned and experienced model. This is quite evident in the ease with which she adjusts her body to each pose and shifts her expression with such seemingly effortless grace. I use the word "seemingly" because modeling is far from easy. But Mila makes it appear so. I have never had the pleasure of meeting her, I regret to admit. Nor have I ever met photographer Goncharov. But in looking at the photos in "Stirred" I get the distinct impression that model and photographer, alike, took great pleasure in creating it. I can tell you, without reservation, that I took great pleasure in viewing it, as well!


Thrills in the chill...

Aspen A: Collection, by John Emslie, outdoor nudity, public erotica

A sun-swept beach, or a cozy bed can give a model a bit of a boost when it comes time to generate erotic heat. But when the skies are cloudy and there's more than a hint of winter in the wind, the job of projecting steamy, sultry sexuality becomes that much more challenging. But a little chilly weather isn't enough to stop Aspen from exposing her tempting assets to John Emslie's heat-seeking lens.

Aspen braves the cool afternoon wearing only a coat, a pair of clingy white leggings, a scarf and shoes. Perhaps the nondescript location is on campus at her university? Oblivious to the risk of exposing herself to unsuspecting fellow students, and without a care about the weather, the American beauty reveals her body and her personality with skill, honesty and warmth.

If "Collection" was an exam, we'd have to give college student Aspen an A+!


The warmth of the sun...

Volna A: Bronze, by Alan Anar, outdoor nudes, young sex in the sun

Although you cannot see it - and in fact it may be miles away from the featured location - the feeling of the seaside permeates this straightforward offering from Alan Anar. With her flowing golden hair, and sun-burnished body, Volna A., radiates a healthy, "beach girl" feeling whether she's striking a pose here, relaxing on the warm summer sands, or dressed up for a night out with friends.

Here, nude and outdoors, bathed in the golden rays of a warm afternoon, Volna's nubile natural beauty can be most fully appreciated. Her skin tone, that glowing bronze, is beautifully captured by the lens, as are the sporty contours of Volna's trim, toned body. Study any of these photos for a moment, then close your eyes and imagine splashing in the surf with Volna at your side. Or picture yourself rubbing sweet-scented oil on this young beauty's body.

Imagine Volna in the scenario of your choosing, whatever and wherever it may be, and you'll soon be feeling the unique heat this magnificent MetArt model has in such abundance!


She's ready for her close-up...

Kate Anne Domini: Presenting, by Rylsky, first nudes, glamour erotica

I've said it before, and I'll no doubt say it again, but reviewing a new model's first appearance at MetArt is one of the highlights of my job. Take a look at Kate Anne Domini's debut and see if you understand what I'm saying. A new model. A 19-year-old, no less. A newcomer, yet skilled beyond her years in the art of modeling. And captured in a clean and tasteful setting by prolific, long-time contributor Rylsky. This is a very promising debut, indeed!

The set includes a broad variety of poses and the new model adapts to and accommodates the photographer's creative and experimental whims. I particularly enjoyed a sequence of shots (spanning #0040 through #0050, or so) that consists of close and very-close facial close-ups. With her flawless complexion and golden tresses, Kate Anne exudes pure glamour here. And #0093, a shot up the model's neck, her face in profile from below, might strike some as a throw-away, but I find it oddly evocative.

What shots in this debutante's collection do you favor?


The thrill of the new...

Ilona B: Presenting, by Goncharov, first nudes, subtle eroticism

If you've only been a member of MetArt for just a few days, perhaps even hours, you have probably already chosen a few favorite models. Over time those favorites may change, but you're always awaiting their next set, and you always feel an extra thrill when something new featuring one of your favorites is added to the site. The familiar face and body of a favorite model is a pleasure to be savored, repeatedly. But there is also much to be said for the pleasures of a new discovery. And so it is with the latest gem unearthed by Goncharov, the beguiling Ilona B.

Shot in natural light, on a somewhat overcast day, the mood of these photos is matched by Ilona's often understated and subtle expressiveness. This isn't a girl who dazzles or overpowers you with her beauty. She seduces you, quietly. A smile is often on her full lips, but she rarely reveals her teeth. Her sexual allure is strong, but it's more akin to a whisper than it is to a scream. There is joy in her eyes, but there is also mystery. The more I looked at Ilona, the more I wanted to see. And then, to my surprise, the series ended. With 89 photographs in total, the set is a bit short. But isn't fitting? Ilona's debut leaves the viewer craving more. We can only hope to get just that...soon!
