Ah, the elusive female orgasm. We don't always talk about it, and not all of us have experienced it, but it deserves our love and appreciation nonetheless. Agreeing with an earlier submission on Bored Panda, Brazilian photographer Marcos Alberti is aiming to break up the dense fog surrounding the world of female sexuality, and is celebrating it in all its glory with The O Project - a steamy series featuring photos of women from all around the world before and after an orgasm.
Teaming up with women's sex toy company Smile Makers, Alberti called on models of all nationalities willing to explore their sexuality on camera, including those from more conservative cultures such as China and Singapore. "Our partnership with Marcos allowed us to create this orgasm faces series to upend that social stigma around human and especially female sexuality, and encourage the normalization of female pleasure," said Fan Yang, Global Brand Manager of Smile Makers. Each model was given a 'Smile Maker' and left to do her thing, and the 4 frames of each finished (pun intended) piece show the changes in their expressions as they reach the climax of pleasure, then ease into final relief.
You might want to make sure the 'coast is clear' over your shoulders before scrolling down, because here you'll find some of our favorite chapters of The O Project. As always, be comfortable with yourself, and don't let anyone shame you for what comes naturally (again, pun really intended).
