Marcos Alberti, a photographer, has captured the moments before, during and after a woman orgasms with an incredibly intimate photo series.
The “O Project,” aims to present female sexuality as it has never been seen before.
He paired up with sex toy company Smile Makers, to capture the climactic moment of 20 women. Smile Makers believes that being sexually satisfied is the key to being beautiful.
Each of his subjects was asked to sit on a stool in front of him and pleasure themselves with one of the brand’s products. That’s when he captured the buildup to climax and the moments afterward.
The resulting photos chart each woman’s facial changes and the speed at which her expression changed.
On his website, Alberti said of the project: “I love that we were able to speak so frankly with these women about sex and pleasure. When you approach the taboo topic of sex through the lens of humor, people start to open up and share opinions more freely, which can lead to a monumental change in people’s mentality.”
