Anyone who has spent more than an idle moment in an Oregon strip club has seen a pussy or two. Although it’s tempting to think that they all look alike, just as every penis has its unique quality, so does every labia. This photo book is irrefutable evidence.

Like many people, photographer Nick Karras has long been fascinated by women’s genitals. He has collected together 48 sepia toned stills reminiscent of Annie Sprinkle’s 1999 film, Zen Pussy, and revealed the glorious diversity of shape, size, texture, and personality of the pussy.

Some pig ignorant viewers may label such intensely gyno-centric photos as pornography, but those with an appreciation for the physical beauty of the vulva and the emotional significance of intimate portraits will immediately recognize the near religious reverence with which these images have been taken.

Surprisingly moving, thought provoking, erotic, beautiful, and respectful, this collection of vulvas demonstrates that genitals, like snowflakes and flowers, are wondrously unique and aesthetically diverse. The book concludes with a short interview with the photographer. The book itself is the soul of discretion with its simple brown cover and matching book sleeve.

Like many men (and women), photographer Nick Karras has long had a fascination with women’s genitals.

In this collection of 48 sepia toned stills reminiscent of Annie Sprinkle’s 1999 film, Zen Pussy, Karras reveals their glorious diversity of shape, size, texture, and personality.

While some less enlightened souls might be tempted to label such pussy-centric photos as pornography, those with a true appreciation for both the physical beauty of the vulva and the deep emotional significance of intimate portraits such as these will immediately recognize the near religious reverence with which they have been taken.

Beautiful, moving, thought provoking, erotic, and respectful, this collection of vulvas demonstrates that genitals, like snowflakes and flowers, are beautifully unique and aesthetically diverse.

A short interview with the photographer concludes the book, which is tastefully packaged and comes with a matching and protective book sleeve.
