In the professional world of photography, some photographers have relatively boring jobs, and take pictures of beetles for Wikipedia, or something.
Others, however, like certain fashion photographers, live the good life and take pictures of beautiful women for a living.
But then, there’s a totally separate category of photographers who have really, really cool jobs, like Brazilian photographer Marcos Alberti, who takes pictures of women before, during, and after they have an orgasm.
Brazilian snapper said ‘The O Project’ was designed to open up conversations surrounding ‘female sexual well-being’.
He captured the facial expressions of more than 20 women before, during and after sexual climax while using a vibrator.
Run in collaboration with sexual well-being brand Smile Makers, each woman is seen through four photographs which unveil the the slow or, in some cases, rapid progression of their facial changes as they reach and recover from orgasm.
But if you’re thinking that Alberti got to see everything and took some ultra sexy photographs of actual the action, let me be the one to tell you that he didn’t. Sorry. He only saw what was going on in their face-area.
“The headshots are fun and sexy, but tasteful, keeping everything below the waist hidden from view – even from the photographer,” the project description on Alberti’s website reads.
Commenting on their orgasmic mission, Fan Yang, the global brand manager of Smile Makers, said: “Female sexuality is more often shrouded in shame and secrecy. Our partnership with Marcos allowed us to create this series to upend that social stigma around female sexuality, and encourage the normalization of female pleasure.”
He continued: “Our partnership with Marcos allowed us to create this series to upend that social stigma around female sexuality, and encourage the normalization of female pleasure.
“All the women who modelled were in awe of their photos, especially the final shot where they were glowing and radiant.”
The ‘O Project’ follows on from Mr Alberti’s previous quest where he captured people before and after the consumption of three glasses of alcohol.
