My focus was to allow 25 women contributors to portray feelings about orgasm in a photographic session offering freedom to use memory, fantasy and re-staging emotional states. For one woman sixty years passed since her only orgasm yet she wanted to show the positive sensation. Shame and confusion often changed and new perceptions adopted. Women of different ages, nationalities, cultural, sexual backgrounds including lesbian, pan sexual, transgender and sex workers opened their bodies and minds to recreate orgasm experiences. Collaborator Marion Schneider asked questions and I photographed. "Can you remember your first orgasm and show the feelings to the camera?"
