Photographer Shares Stunning Photos Of Women At The Point Of Orgasm To Talk About Female Sexuality

Female sexual liberation is being discussed and promoted in a way that it has never been before. Societal expectations in days gone by portrayed women as homemakers who existed only to please men. Now, women are being encouraged to embrace their sexuality.

A study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine revealed that women only orgasm 62.9% of the time during sex, whereas men orgasm 85.1% of the time. However, action is being taken to change this balance and enable women to enjoy sex as much as men do.

One of female sexual liberation’s biggest proponents is American model and actress Amber Rose.

Rose is using her fame to encourage women to be exactly who they are and not feel the need to conform to gender expectations – something she encouraged when she shared a picture of herself showcasing her pubic hair, which many women feel pressured into shaving off.

She is pictured below at her “Slut Walk”. It was promoted by her “Walk Of No Shame” video – an empowering take on the phrase “Walk Of Shame”, which is used to describe women leaving a one-night stand’s house the next day early in the morning and getting judged for it.

Another person who shares Rose’s views on female sexual liberation is photographer Albert Pocej.

To help promote female sexual liberation, he portrayed it in a remarkable way by creating a photography project centered around women who are at the point of orgasm. It features 15 brave women who volunteered to take part in the project, and the results are stunning.

People often joke about what a person’s “sex face” looks like, but Pocej’s photographs show that there is beauty in an orgasm, turning an often joked about topic into a serious project which aims to capture women experiencing “the highest point of physical pleasure.”

“How did I come up with this idea?” Pocej revealed in an online essay about the project. “I dreamed about it. I simply woke up, and I knew I just had to do it. So I tried to explore the female orgasm through a photography experiment.”

“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,” the photographer continued.

“So at the end, there were only 15 left. To reach the best results, sometimes I used time-lapse photography, making a picture every second automatically while I was nowhere around – this helped the models to relax,” Pocej revealed.

“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.”

Pocej’s project and the beauty of these pictures represents an important step forward when it comes to encouraging women to embrace their sexual pleasure. Contrary to what is depicted in pornographic movies, 80% of women struggle to achieve orgasm through penetration alone.

A little-known fact about female orgasms is that they are linked a woman’s self-esteem. If a woman feels disgusted by her own body, or even dislikes her genitals for a superficial reason, the quality of her orgasms will decrease as a result.

It’s no secret that it takes longer for women to orgasm than men. That’s why we as a society need to move away from the outdated belief that sex ends when a man climaxes, encouraging men to take the time to ensure that their partner has the best possible experience.

Now that women are being encouraged to embrace their sexual pleasure, they are learning what makes them orgasm and passing this knowledge onto their partners. The normalization of female imperfections is also inspiring many women to love the bodies they are in.

Pojc’s photographs serve as an important reminder that female sexual pleasure is nothing like the false pleasure depicted in pornographic movies – it’s actually beautiful. Hopefully, this will encourage more women to think positively about their sexual pleasure.
