In the ground-breaking book, Orgasm: Photographs and Interviews (Daylight Books), Linda Troeller, an award-winning New York based photographer, and author and ethnographer Marion Schneider, collaborate to discuss and portray women’s feelings about orgasm through personal narratives and photographs. This bold book continues the investigation into female sexuality begun by Troeller and Schneider’s landmark 1998 volume The Erotic Lives of Women, acclaimed in The New York Times Book Review as “one of the gutsiest books of the decade.”

Orgasm: Photographs and Interviews 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. The safe environment Troeller and Schneider created enabled 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. Troeller photographed the women immediately after their responses to capture their spontaneous emotional and physical states. These are the five 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?
