You've probably heard the term "O face" before. It's a phrase that means the face a woman makes during orgasm. But oftentimes, there's shaming involved with that term, as if there's a right way to look during sex — even though there isn't.
Portland, Ore.-based photographer Lauren Crow is tired of the notion that women have to look a certain way while getting it on. So she decided to create a photo series of women mid-orgasm to show that everyone looks different and that's perfectly OK. She named her series The Little Death.
"In a patriarchal society, women are flooded with information on how to be and how to look in order to please others, namely men. In terms of female pleasure, we are rarely shown what it really looks like," she wrote on her website. "The Little Death aims to help people (of all genders) release their own preconceived notions of what women really look like."
Mouth open, eyes scrunched up, teeth clenched or even "in pain," no need to worry about how you look during the big "O" as long as you're enjoying the moment.
