Status: Current Member for less than 1 month (at the time of review).
Pros: Billing by CCBill with no regional pricing
Reasonable price of $19.95
Exclusive content.
The 59 gorgeous models include a wide variety of ethnicities from Asia, Africa, South America and Europe.
Site updates consistently every 2 days.
Stunning high resolution photos available in 3 sizes.
Zip downloads.
Photo set covers included in zip files.
Some nice background info on the models included.
Additional features include model ratings, comments and add to favourites.
Cons: The video section is very small; only 13 videos total and only 1 new one added in the last 12 months.
Videos are streaming only.
Many of the photo sets are split in to two parts although they do generally come as consecutive updates.
Zip file naming could be better; model name plus number (e.g. emilya_1_m, emilya_2_m), would be nicer if they could include the photo set name.
Navigation could be better.
Search tool is rather limited.
No file sizes listed for zips.
Download speed seemed a little slow; single downloads seemed to be limited to about 600 KB/sec.
Bottom Line: Melina.com claim to be professional photographers who travel the world to find the best looking girls whom they claim to be exclusive to the site and 100% newcomers. I certainly didnít recognise any of the models as being familiar from other sites and even tried cross referencing a few at thenude.eu but came up with a blank so have no reason to doubt their claims. This is primarily a Teen site with the models mostly being aged 18-21. The big attraction for me in this site was the varied ethnic diversity of the models which you seldom find on multi model sites. I loved discovering the dark skinned, dark haired exotic beauties from places like India, Thailand, Philippines, Chile, Venezuela and Brazil to name a few. The site has been online a little over 2 years and to date has 414 galleries (31,000+ photos).

The navigation options are rather limited with a choice of models, galleries or videos. The models page is nicely presented with a good sized preview photo of each model along with her name and number of galleries, pics and videos. The models are listed by rank starting with the highest rated. You can also click on a letter of the alphabet to find models by name alphabetically. There is a basic model search that allows you to search by eye colour, hair colour, ethnicity, tattoos and piercings. The annoying thing about using the search engine or the alphabetical listing is that after you select a model in your results and hit the back button you are always taken back to the default models page so have to click back to the letter of the alphabet or search again. If you select galleries the whole 2 yearsí worth of photo sets will be presented on a single page with a preview photo of the set cover so a lot of scrolling involved. Down the right hand side there is a month and year list but clicking on it doesnít actually take you to that monthís updates. It just expands a list of text links for the dates in that month when there was an update, not very helpful really without a preview pic.

The strength of the site is the photo collection; this is top quality professional photography equal to anything you would find on top photography sites like MetArt. In fact in some ways I preferred the photo sets here to those at Met because the models almost always start off wearing some clothing, lingerie or swimwear so you nearly always get some tease before the nakedness. I donít really recall seeing any of those plain vanilla nude sets you get a lot of at MetArt. There is a good mix of indoor and stunning outdoors locations. The models here get fully nude including some spreading and close up shots but donít go as far as masturbation or insertions. The photos are offered in 3 sizes (+1000px, +2000px and up to 5000px).

Anyone who joins this site for videos Iím afraid would end up sorely disappointed. There are only 13 videos and they are streaming only. There are 4 quality levels of streaming; HD720p, 480p, 360p & 240p for mobile. I didnít find the 720p very sharp when viewed full screen on my 24 inch monitor so have my doubts that itís true hd. The videos are mostly 2-3 minutes long and are just basically the model dancing around and stripping with background music. I didnít find them very erotic at all.

For anyone who loves high quality photography I would recommend this site particularly if you have a passion for dark dusky exotic beauties. If youíre only interested in videos I would advise against wasting your money on this site. The poor video section wouldnít adversely affect my rating of the site as I have little to no interest in them anyway.

otoh (54) Thanks for another great review, tangub :) This had long been on my list due to the diversity of models; but it is a shame that diversity doesn't extend to age. I certainly don't mind the 18-21 group, but would get bored if the whole site was centred on it. Still, one to keep an eye on!
