Toronto photographer Will Santillo conceived the La Petite Mort project eight years ago to include a thorough cross-section of women: young to old, slim to thick, perfect beauties to those not considered beautiful until viewed through his lens. The one constant would be that each would decide and direct how she masturbated to climax while he captured the moment. Dian Hanson interviewed 37 of the women, and their candid insights on overcoming inhibition, giving in to exhibitionism, and achieving orgasm in front of a stranger with a camera.
