“Tribale” starring Milena D — city nymph/country nymph…

Milena D: Tribale, by Erik Latika, living doll and pout-mouthed nymph

Erik Latika, frequent MetArt contributor — and frequent photographer of this particular model — has a bit of fun with this series. He starts it off on the roof of a large building in somewhat gritty urban area. The photos in this opening sequence are casual, spontaneous, and have something of a snapshot feel. Milena D is as cute as ever, and very sexy (see #007), in her flat sandals, blue mini-dress, and sheer white panties. But none of these items of clothing come off. And after ten images the set changes. Completely.

After the brief tease on that rooftop in the city, “Tribale” moves to a pastoral meadow surrounding a small pond. Milena D has traded her casual street clothes for sheer, flowing fabrics in shades of pale yellow. Her hair is elaborately styled and she has a bunch of yellow lilies that complement her coloring and are in perfect harmony with the natural setting. Where the presentation in the opening shots was off-the-cuff, here it’s much more stylized. The location, the costuming, and Milena’s beguiling beauty infuse the country photos with something mythical and magical.

Milena D has been blessed with the face of an angel as well as a heavenly little body. Her big blue eyes and the plump, pouty lips give her an almost doll-like quality, and even when she stays in one fairly limited segment of her wide range of expressions she’s a delight to view. Her youthful girlishness is in full force in #014 and #023, two nothing-showing but still effective portraits. And #060 moves in tighter for a flower-enhanced headshot. Explicit images are plentiful, and Milena attempts to stoke the flames with some suggestive posing, but it really isn’t necessary. Here Milena’s natural beauty, the location, and Latika’s design and technique create a bit of erotic art magic.

  1. This is one of those reviews where you skirted around the greatest flaw. I realize there is a group that likes the natural look (hairy) but I am not one of these and even if I were I would object to this display of extreme bush. I can live with the natural look as long as there is some grooming done but when a woman has more hair on her butt and thighs than a man that is a turn off for me. Placed in even a very modest swimsuit she would have a beard that would make a guy proud. What really drives me crazy is that Milena D is so childlike and has such delicately feminine features that it makes this display of hair seem like a slap in the face. She is an amazingly pretty and youthful young thing and looks so great when shaved or neatly trimmed. This one thing destroys the whole effect which to me is a crying shame.

  2. Addendum: Milena has a total of 29 galleries to her credit and has been in the top 10 many times but in going back and reviewing her shoots I find that when she makes the top 10 she is either shaved or at least neatly trimmed. When trimmed she has one of the prettiest vaginal areas on the Met. Since she has opted for the unshaven side she has dropped in popularity. Sad because she is a very pretty little girl. But I guess you have to make concessions to satisfy everyone and it obviously has kept her busy modeling.

  3. Interesting comments hipshot13, but I think a few things should be noted:

    The red “Top 10 model” ribbon appears on the covers of new sets when that model is in the Top 10 at the time the new set is released. So, it seems to me that the ribbon is actually a better reflection of a model’s popularity when her PREVIOUS set was out!

    Second: Milena D has indeed been in the Top 10 even when hairy. I specifically remember this because I myself prefer her totally unshaven look, and recall a bit of surprise that she achieved such a high ranking when the majority of other fans probably prefer the shaved looked (I mean that they prefer shaved overall, not necessarily just with Milena D. Of course I don’t have any statistics to prove this, but the super-heavy ratio of shaved vs. hairy models would suggest more fans overall like shaved or drastically trimmed.

    Lastly, Milena D as I write this is ranked #15, still an amazing position given the HUNDREDS of models featured on Met-Art. And really, her current score of 9.30 is not that much lower than the #1 score of 9.40, which Malena Morgan and Caprice have been trading back and forth all year!!

    And Adam, I believe this is not the first time you’ve expressed hesitance to discuss a model’s grooming…why is that? I personally find it a very interesting topic, much more so than a photo’s lighting and background props! I used to prefer shaved models, but I’ve been gravitating to the hairy look more and more, perhaps because it seems EVERY model on the web in the past 10-15 years has been shaved. We all have different tastes, as it’s well known…but I’ve discovered tastes can even change!

    • Thanks for your comments, thor, your statistical analysis is particularly interesting.

      As to the grooming issue, I try to avoid it precisely because it is so polarizing a subject. Some love the shaved look, others hate it. The thing about hair, however, is that it can always be trimmed or shaved, and it will always grow back.

      I’m old enough to remember when shaved girls were a rarity and a preference for the hairless state was considered a fetish. Now, as you’re aware, the tables have turned. Fascinating, isn’t it?

  4. I don’t like Milena D when she’s hairy either. In some galleries her underarms are not even shaved. I made her a favorite after viewing only one of her galleries and after discovering her inconsistency with shaving I deleted her and saved the galleries in which she is shaved. When I was younger the sight of pubic hair would drive me wild but over time social attitudes (at least in the USA) have changed.

    • Thanks for joining the conversation, homer! Just between you and me, I wasn’t quite sure how to respond to your two previous comments. As a result, they never made it into print. But please understand that your comments are most welcome here, and I encourage you to share your opinions and observations in the future. Cheers!

  5. For my part the shave/no shave thing is not completely cut and dried. On some girls mother nature has done a very nice job of creating a neat nicely groomed look the is quite sexy and a girl that does a bikini trim is fine. But I can’t stand the shaggy look like she has in this shoot. This is for 2 reasons. First, I am hopelessly fascinated with a woman’s sexual parts and nicely groomed make it so much easier to admire. The second is hygiene. A big bushy mound like that gives me the impression that her hygiene is lacking especially with unshaven armpits.

  6. Just to illustrate last comment. Take a look at Sehvetli, Featuring: Anika A, Photographer: Ron Offlin.
    This girl was graced with a perfect bush and it would be a shame to shave it. If Milena D did just that much trimming she too would be perfect.
