Written by certified life coach Elena Petrova, “Elena’s Models Blog” is an OFT-overlooked vertical on www.ElenasModels.com, a web platform facilitating transactional romance between Slavic women and western men.

But how do you get there? Like the most adorable parts of a Russian Matryoshka doll, the blog is nestled deep inside showier quarters.

You have arrived at the blog of the woman with her finger on the pulsing dick of 2015. Look at the offerings from this week alone. It’s a true cornucopia of content:

Listicles, of course.


The most amazing part? Elena creates all her content WHILE running a legally suspect and probably exploitative service profiting off the intractably skewed power disparity between wealthy men benefiting from the vagaries of the global economic system/institutionalised sexism and the circumscribed opportunity of women from the former Soviet Union.
