The project involved the participation of 25 women of different ages, nationalities, and cultural and social backgrounds who opened their bodies and minds to share intimate stories about their own experiences achieving orgasm independently and with their partners. I created a safe environment to enable the collaborators to deliver extraordinarily candid revelations about their sexual and erotic lives from the early years through the present day. Schneider asked each subject the same five questions and audiotaped her answers. I photographed the women immediately after their responses to capture their spontaneous emotional and physical states. These are the questions:

• "What does the word orgasm mean to you?"
• "Can you remember your first orgasm and show the feelings to the camera?"
• "Can you remember your strongest orgasm and show the feelings to the camera?"
• “Do you have fantasies when you create or experience an orgasm?”
• “What is the future of orgasm in society / in the world?”
