Large Labia Project

Everything has beauty,
but not everyone sees it: Confucius


This blog is all about large labia, and mostly to do with large labia minora. This is a body-positive blog that aims to show that large labia are normal and beautiful. It provides support for those who feel insecure, self-conscious, victimised or vilified about their large labia. This blog is inclusive, and all people with labia are welcome, regardless race, age, sexual preference or gender. Submissions are encouraged, but photos showing nudity are only allowed from people 18+ please.


NOTE: This blog shows photos depicting detailed genital nudity in a non-sexual setting, and contains written content with adult themes.


WARNING: If you have a blog that mainly contains and reblogs porn, DO NOT FOLLOW this blog and DO NOT REBLOG any posts from it. Otherwise you will be blocked and reported for harassment.

What's the name of your breast blog?

Hi, still the masturbation lady. I have a real problem with accepting my vulva when it's hairy. I don't like it that much when it's shaved either but when it's hairy and we're having sex with my boyfriend, I tend to hide it or try to. The 15 minute challenge is really gonna be a challenge because I cannot see what he sees. He likes everything about me and that's great. But it would be nice to feel confident. And I also feel guilty about having anal sex and you're the first person to know.

Whether you have pubic hair or not is a fashion choice. Personally I both shave and let it grow, depending on how I’m feeling. Maybe you could find some middle ground that you’re happy with, like being trimmed, or having pubic hair on your mound and shaving your labia majora. It’s great that your partner accepts you regardless. That’s a bonus!

Pubic hair is shown to reduce the chance of having sore and irritated labia from your undies and jeans though.

I’ll be really interested to hear how you go with that 15 minute challenge then. Try to be as open minded as you can, whether you’re shaved or hairy.

I guess having negative feelings about anal sex is normal, if you consider that the anus is dirty, forbidden and taboo. Humans are great at working out alternative uses for things, and ways to enjoy themselves - sexually. Mouths weren’t designed for sucking penises or cunnilingus. Fingers weren’t designed for hand jobs or massaging vaginas. Anuses weren’t designed for anal sex. But they are all enjoyable activities. Penises are used for body waste disposal. The female urethra, clitoris, anus and vagina are all next door neighbours. It’s reasonable to think they’ll be involved, for some people, in sex. Anuses have sensitive nerve endings, which for many people, means sexual contact is very pleasurable. If you enjoy it, then how is it different to sucking cock? Guilt implies you’ve done something wrong. There’s no morality attached to it. If you enjoy it, and your partner enjoys it, and you aren’t hurting anyone, then what’s there to feel guilty about?

Hi, I'm the one with the masturbation problem and I'm just so glad you answered me and were so sweet about it. I don't think I ever discussed about masturbation with anyone, I mean, no one told me that it was a bad thing to do or anything. I never had the sex talk because I knew all about it because I had big twin sisters. But I don't know, maybe I never thought of it as something that I needed to do? But I will probably try more because I want to. Maybe even tonight. Thank you so much! xx

Hi, well you don’t “need” to do it. I think masturbation is a good idea, and highly recommend it though. Orgasm doesn’t have to happen every time you do it. It’s enjoyable and pleasurable in its own right and if nothing else it’s a good way to check yourself out, especially if you masturbate in front of a mirror. Why not do a breast self exam while you’re at it? I always find those enjoyable.

If you approach masturbation with low expectations and just have fun exploring, then you may just find that orgasm follows. I’m glad you’re going to give it more of a chance. After all there’s no down side to it. Good luck :)

When I was really young (6 or 7) I started masturbating, not knowing really it was uncommon at that age, but as I got older I realized one of my inner lips had stretched longer than the other one and I've recently come to accept it. But I also have LOTS of "hymenal tags" or excess tissue all around my hymen and urethra that are somewhat long and I'm wondering if that's particularly common to have extra tissue since I've not seen it on any diagrams or photos on here either
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

Don’t worry, having one lip longer than the other is perfectly normal (mine are like that). It’s not due to stretching or from masturbation. It’s to do with your genes. Your body was meant to be this way.

Check out my last post to see examples of hymens, hymnal tags, and the myriad appearances they can have. You sound pretty normal to me.

What Hymens Look Like

There have been a number of questions lately about hymens, also known as “vaginal coronas”, and virginity. The vaginal corona is a thin fleshy membrane at the entrance of the vagina. It can be crescent shaped, a ring around the vaginal opening, worn away, lumpy, bumpy, “ragged”-looking, with sticky-outie “tags” or there can be absolutely noting at all.

To show how different vaginal coronas can look I’ve compiled 64 photos of them (click the picture for a much larger version). My apologies to all of the non-white people visiting my site, for the gross under-representation here, but photos of Black, Asian, Hispanic and other-coloured vaginal coronas were really hard to come by. Regardless, as you can see we’re all pink on the inside :) It’s also an interesting display of labial diversity, but that’s a different story.

So go ahead and have a close look at all of these vulvas. You can see some that have vaginal coronas appear to completely close over the vagina. Virgin hymens maybe? Others, particularly where the vaginas have been stretched open, show just a little bit of flesh around the rim. Some are smooth. Some are lumpy. Some have “tags” of flesh. They are all normal hymens.

Can you spot all of the virgin hymens there? Yes? No? Well you may be surprised to know that each and every vulva here belongs to a porn model/actress, with the photos taken from a porn website. Each was from larger photos sets for each model, where the model’s vagina was penetrated by any number of things, from sex toys to fisting. Are there any virgins among them? Well no. Not at all actually.

For those people who care about these things, the appearance of the vaginal corona is NOT an indicator of virginity.

Off topic but I trust your opinion, my boyfriend came in me about 3 weeks ago and lately I've had like brown discharge, there's no scent to it it's just brown and thick. I googled and it's early sign of pregnancy ? Is this true or is something else wrong. He have me chlymidia about 3 months ago but we treated it maybe it didn't go away ? Please help me.

If you’re worried that you might be pregnant or have an STD then see a doctor and get tested. Emma

I recently called for site visitors who were having their period to submit photos, showing tampon strings or even menses. This was following a particularly stupid complaint from an anon about the number of tampon strings seen in photos on this site (which is negligible btw). Since the majority of legitimate visitors to this site have their period every month, for decades and decades, it’s not something that should be stigmatised or hidden away, pretending that it doesn’t happen. There needs to be more education about menstruation. And frankly it’s an integral part of the amazing process of human reproduction. As awful as it usually is, it should be revered, celebrated and honoured for the majesty that the female reproduction system possesses. We should be proud to be able to bleed. I know I am!

This is a submission from a brave, proud and beautiful visitor who wanted to share her vulva and period. I’ll let her take over the discussion from here, including a photo she has submitted during her period (after “read more”). Thank you beautiful contributor!

Email Submission: Hi Emma, I’ve always admired the work you do with The Large Labia Project, Our Breasts, and Our Bodies, but I never thought I’d submit anything!

This was taken completely on a whim after browsing The LLP and seeing your call for period submissions. I was reminded how I’d really enjoyed the pictures Bare To Bush had taken of herself during her period and

I posted this to my other body-positive blog www.ourbreasts.org, but it’s just as useful for all the people with breasts who visit the Large Labia Project too.

My blog has simple needs, but it does have annual expenses including maintaining it’s URL, subscription fees for running surveys, research, website layout, artwork etc. Plus I devote many hours to my sites, often at the expense of my day job and my pay!

To help keep it running, and providing the level of support and information that many people have come to rely upon, I’m asking for small donations from the many visitors and contributors to the site. All monies raised will be applied directly to help continue the work of the Large Labia Project.

If you’re menstruating right now then I invite you submit photos of your vulva showing how you look at this time of your month.

Some people are offended by the thought that people with vulvas get their period, and the mere sight of a tampon string, or even the idea menstrual blood is gross, eww and should be totally hidden away. We don’t live in the dark ages, so I think it’s time to show that having your period isn’t something to be ashamed about. After all, it happens every month for decades. It’s reality for 50% of the population.

So if you’re having your period then please submit photos of your vulva, whether you have large labia or small. Proudly show a tampon string, or even menses, it’s entirely up to you.

Email me at largelabiaproject@gmail.com and I will post them anonymously for you.

I used to think my labia were dirty because they're not pink, so I'd scrub and scrub and scrub them until they were sore, thinking that I just had some serious dirt issues despite my good hygiene or that I had a stain of some sort. I mostly watch home made porn, but I still didn't see many, if any, labia like mine on white girls, so it wasn't until I found this blog that I realized how normal it is for labia to be darker and not pink. Thank you so much for helping people discover the truth.
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

I’m really glad you now know the truth and can be happy about your normal vulva :)

You may have seen that I’m doing some research into the appearance of labia and vulva throughout the menstrual cycle. Basically I want to be able to determine if there’s any change in size, coloration, shape etc throughout the month. The research involves taking photos of your vulva every day, and making notes to describe what you see.

So far all of the participants are Caucasian (white) and I need to have some people with darker skin involved. So if you’re non-white, over 18 and menstruate, then I really want you to be part of this.

If you’d like to participate then please email me at largelabiaproject@gmail.com and I’ll send you more details of what’s involved.

Please also help by reblogging and spreading the word on social media, among your friends and family. Thanks for your help.

Emma

PS: If you’re white skinned and want to be part of it then you’re very welcome too!

Email Submission: Hi there, I found your blog by chance, and I wanted to share some photos of my “wedding tackle” to let the other ladies know they have nothing to fear. I’ve known since I was young that we were all different. Maybe it’s my scandanavian ancestry, maybe it’s something else… But I’ve always had large inner labia, and I’ve never once been ashamed of it! In fact, my ex husband (RIP, he passed from cancer a few years ago) he LOVED it, as it gave him a “handle” so to speak for when he went down on me… Being able to pull my lips apart, exposed my clit and allowed him full access to please me. For what it’s worth, I wanted to share. Btw, I’ve had two kids and I’m 38!
