WHAT IS THE O PROJECT?
The O Project is a series of photographs taken by Marcos Alberti, a renowned Brazilian photographer who was behind the 3 Glasses project in 2016. This time, Marcos has worked with Smile Makers to create something daring, unique and meaningful: a series of photos of women before, during and after they climax through self-pleasure. Far from the fake and standardized depiction that porn gives of it, the series showcases the female orgasm as it is: DIVERSE, BEAUTIFUL and EMPOWERING!
"Removing the stigma around women's sexuality, especially when it comes to self-pleasure, is something that we need so much more of."
WHY DID WE DO IT?
At Smile Makers, we strive every day to normalize the perception of female sexuality. We are up against very deeply-rooted taboos, and we do our best to break them little by little.
By showing women from all over the world owning their bodies and glowing of wellness, we want encourage women to feel more confident about their bodies and sexuality. And show the world how normal, natural and diverse female pleasure is!
“The order of business is to present the taboo topic of female masturbation, evading the usual pitfalls of shaming and silence.”
HOW DID WE DO IT?
Come with us behind the scenes in this making-of!
“In a world where it is still seen as daring for a woman to speak candidly about her sexuality, a project like this is more than necessary.”
