Présentation de l'éditeur

Petals is about vulvas: The center of womanhood and mystery. It's where magic happens, and we enter into the physical world. Although it was considered to be sacred in the past, many have forgotten the sacredness of unique beauty of each woman's vulva. This book is comprised of 48 fine art photography of vulvas, each hand printed by a master photographer with respect and care. If you are not sure if your vulva looks normal, if you don't like how it looks, or you are just curious how other women's vulvas look like, this is a great book for you. It can be used in medical setting, sex education, women's studies and empowerment and more. You may also find the documentary film of this subject Petals: Journey into Self Discovery to be helpful and moving.

En savoir plus sur l'auteur

Dr. Nick Karras is a man of many talents. He is a photographer and the author of Petals, a break-though book presenting stunningly beautiful images of vulvas. A documentary of his work on the project is the subject of an award-winning film,Petals - Journey Into Self-Discovery. The varied range of his erotic photography has been exhibited in many venues and media - the Seattle Erotic Arts Festival, the Los Angeles Museum of Sex, Victoria Erotica Festival, Bravo TV (UK), VaginaFest events, and more.Nick has received a prestigious Sexual Intelligence Award by Dr. Marty Klein.

Nick is also a teacher. His Doctorate degree in Sexology was awarded by the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality (IASHS) in San Francisco. Aside from teaching photographic skills at various Lifestyle conventions and festivals, he has been a featured speaker and workshop leader at SSSS (The Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality) and ASEP (Association of Sexual Energy Professionals).

Because of his necessarily intimate and honest encounters with women and men in sensuous settings, Nick has gained unique insights into both the fantasies and the reality of human beings. His investigation into taboo subjects has allowed him to experience the basic nature of most sexual problems. For example, from his controversial work in the Petals project, came his workshop: "Images of Vulvas as a Healing Experience." His inventive approach to the life's sexual dilemmas combined with his delicate aesthetic sense make him an outstanding personal mentor.

In his current photo project, Naked Wisdom, he is turning his camera on the wise elders of our society for their wisdom and knowledge of self love and body acceptance. Working with his wife, Sayaka, a psychologist and sexologist, they are seeking out 60 plus generation for their insight to life through story telling and personalized interviews and photographically capturing the beautiful radiance of their nude body.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Educational and Inspiring 18 novembre 2006
Par Shannon Bertha - Publié sur
I am a human sexuality professor and use pictures of "Petals" in my classroom. The soft tone of the pictures are a great way to introduce the vulva to beginners who have never really seen vulvas up close and who believe there is only one norm. Quite often after class I am flooded with comments about how these pictures made many of the women feel better about themselves and find beauty in their own petals. I also receive an overwelming response from the men in my classes too. Many have not seen such a wide variety in an up close setting. There are some petals that are shown without hair but this is only a reflection of the times and trends that are seen in pubic hair.

This book is always a coversation starter not only in my classroom but in my personal life as well. many of my friends when over will go through the book and tell me how they always were uncomfortable with their genitals...but now their genitals have become their "petals" and instead of viewing them as uncomfortable, now they are works of art.

All in all I commend Nick Karras for making such a bold move to tackle a topic that many people are fearful and possibly disgusted by and make it into something as beautiful as Petals.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Normal? 15 novembre 2006
Par Julie Freedman - Publié sur
Working as an NP with both men and women who ask me 5 days a week if their 'petals' (I love that word) or the petals of their partners are normal I open up this book and give them time to look thru it..

The vast majority of the time I have had pleased and grateful reviewers. The most common remark is 'not only is mine normal but perhaps.... even beautiful!

I love the reminder that what is sometimes taken for granted, is indeed something to be cherished. Beautiful work!!

Nick Karras's lovely photos capture that most delicate and unique of a woman's features, her outer genitals. Over forty examples appear here, printed in a warm, almost romantic monochrome. Because of the intimate nature of these photos and because of each viewer's personal associations, responses to these photos are sure to be highly varied and individual.

One response simply takes these organic forms as visual abstractions. Viewed that way, simplicity of the basic structure and complexity of the variations create a rich balance that human artists rarely achieve. Another viewer might see these anatomical photos, isolating just of her body's features, as depersonalizing. Paradoxically, one could also see these as deeply personal. Outside of doctors, most people encounter a vulva (other than one's own) only in deeply intimate settings. It seems quite proper that a woman might reserve the most distinctive parts of her physical self for those who already appreciate her uniqueness most. A book like this helps the viewer realize just how wide the range of possible appearances can be, and so emphasizes the individuality of each one.

This book goes well beyond Femalia in some ways. Both books document a range of individual looks, and help to educate men and women in how many different kinds of appearance are all "normal." Karras does more, though. It's slip-case, warm and airy appearance, and rich look and feel all convey respect and importance. That sense of respect, possibly bordering on worship, suits these photos perfectly, and the models' anonymity extends that respect to women everywhere.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Poor book to use as a representation of 'normal', there are better choices for teaching 10 février 2013
Par K. Salinger, Holistic Nurse Practitioner - Publié sur

I'm always interested in books that offer a good representation of the true and normal variety found in women's bodies, their sexuality, etc. to use with my clients. Just as grocery stores only carry 2 or 3 different varieties of apples now days (and there are actually hundreds of different types), the media and culture have a narrow view of how a woman's body should look (and function). This representation that lack variety creates an artificial idea of 'normal', making many women think there is something wrong with them if they don't fit the supposed 'normal' they see.

I was very disappointed to see that the significant majority of women's vulva's featured in this book are shaved and with minimal variance in shape and look (the images almost seem selected for similarity). Shaving is a cultural trend - not a norm - and thus, not a good representation of 'normal' for a woman's body. Showing primarily one 'look' for vulva's can give a woman or teen the idea that they are not 'normal' if they don't look like the cookie cutter versions of vulva's that are represented. Most often now days images in adult video's and other sources idealize the bare, pre-pubescent look, (which is with the labia minora and clitoris tucked in or barely visible between the hairless labia majora, and all quite small) this can make the majority of women think they aren't normal, as obviously a woman's sexual organs rarely look the same as a pre-pubescent girl's.

For teaching, education, or your own knowledge of what is 'normal', much better choices to use that offer more realistic representations of vulvas are: The Yoni: Sacred Symbol of Female Creative Power - this book in general is a positive, woman honoring elucidation of the female form and includes art, sculpture and natural formations that represent or resemble a woman's vulva as well. I really like this book for it's 'pro' woman, reverential perspective. However, for a book that is great for teaching and solely features realistic, color photographs of vulva's Femalia is the best choice. Personally, I think anyone working with women and teens should have them both.

Summary: Not recommended for teaching or learning about the normal variances of women's vulva's. Instead, buy 'The Yoni' and/or 'Femalia' (links above...)

There are very few books that celebrate female beauty like this. In fact I only know one more: Femalia by Joani Blank. Like some other readers, I would have preferred full color, but even in b/w these intimate portraits are mezmerising.
