14 Controversial Portraits Of Women Having Powerful Orgasms
These 14 controversial portraits of women having powerful orgasms were created by Albert Pocej, a photographer that dares to challenge the norms. Albert wanted to created a photo series that stands out from the usual female art pictorials we see. He wanted to make the female orgasm stand out and be acknowledge for what it really is. A natural, beautiful expression of the female body.
He came up with this very intriguing idea during the night, while he was sound asleep. “I dreamed about it. I simply woke up and I knew I just had to do it.” he says. Wanting to put his dream in practice was no easy task, because usually, people don’t let themselves be photographed by strangers while climaxing.
“At first I thought it would be impossible. Finding the models was the most difficult part. I started to write to 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 14 left.” Albert Pocej explained.
These portraits empower women to feel free to be themselves, no matter the criticism they’ll receive. These women are not afraid to stand up for a natural thing, such as the female orgasm, considered taboo up until recent times. Sadly, in most countries this is still a subject that is not discussed and what these courageous and beautiful women did would be punishable by law.
In order for Albert to capture the exact moment of climax, he left a camera on a time lapse to take pictures every second. The women were left alone to masturbate without any interference and the camera only captured their expression. Some of the times Albert took the photos himself, with the models that had no problem in reaching an orgasm with the photographer present in front of them.
“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 to think. And clichés don’t make people think.”
