Professional photographer Albertas Pocej has set himself with a personal challenge to capture the moment of women reaching the highest point of physical pleasure – orgasm.
How did he come up with this idea? Well, he dreamt it:
“I simply woke up and I knew I just have to do it.”
The hardest part was to find the models for these sessions: I started to write everybody I know without any boundaries since all the women are so different. The answers I got were mostly two kinds:
“I don’t have enough courage.”
and just the silence, which is also pretty obvious as an answer.
When I finally found 20 women that were ready to take part in this project, some of them refused to continue when I told them that it will not be acting, and some of them weren’t able to relax already while shooting. So at the end, there were only 15 left.
And you know the cool part about it? None of it was faked. The models were actually having orgasms in front of his camera: “I didn’t want this project to be a cliché, I didn’t want any acting – just the real feeling as it is. Every human being is different, so are their orgasms. I wasn’t trying to make it any better as it is in life. I wanted to make those looking at these pictures think. And clichés don’t make people think.“
