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 of 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.

Email Submission: Hello Emma! I am nervous but so happy to submit to your page. I know you do not like full length body photos, but could you please post these as I wanted to show my body like this, and could you please post these to both your labia and breasts pages. I am 20 years, from Denmark, and I have had anorexia and bulimia since I was 15 years. I am now recovered. I am proud of my body and I want to show it so that other girls can know they can do it and they are ok too with what ever their body is.

I am also embarrassed of my large labia but your site is helping me to feel more comfortable with them. I think I can love them soon and looking at all the other beautiful vaginas here I know mine are beautiful too.

Thank you for helping me to feel better about myself. Love love love <3

Email Submission: Hi Emma, I am so glad I stumbled upon your project. Your blog has helped me get to know my body better. I never realized the inside of my vagina has a heart <3 thanks for making me more aware of my body.

Your blog helps women all over the world, whether it be a confidence booster, or just knowing we aren’t alone in our insecurities. And always thank you for all you do to help women become empowered in their journey with our vulvas and bodies. Words cannot fully express my gratitude to you for all you have done for me and are doing for billions of women around the world. You truly are a gem!

On the subject of childbirth, pardon my ignorance, but I have always wondered with natural births, do vaginas/labias/vaginal canal go back to the shape and tightness they were before the delivery? Also what does the vagina/labia look like when the baby exits the canal? Again, sorry for my ignorance.

I have no first-hand experience with this apart from when I was born lol. But from what I’ve heard it varies from woman to woman. And you can watch videos of women giving birth on YouTube.

I have trouble accepting my labia. I have long labia minora, and almost no labia majora. I was also sexually abused during my childhood, so sex is already a touchy subject. I want to be able to have sex without being ashamed of myself and my labia.
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

I’m really sorry to hear that you were hurt like that. I hope that you were able to receive counselling to help you cope with that. I can’t begin to imagine what life has been like for you.

You probably know this already, but you have done nothing wrong, you’re not to blame for what happened to you, or the appearance of your body, and you have absolutely nothing to be ashamed of. You are not responsible for another person’s acts of evil and violence towards you. The appearance of your vulva sounds perfectly normal. Large labia minora and small labia majora are normal. The size, shape and coloration of your vulva has everything to do with your genes and hormones. There is no shame in having a normal body.

If you know the person well, and you know they care about you for who you are, then any future sexual partners will adore all of you, including your totally normal vulva. I hope that one day, soon, you can grow to accept yourself for the wonderful, normal, beautiful and strong person that you are.

hey, have you guys considered having a blog for hips as well? I, for one, have hips that are not up to the publicized standard of feminine beauty and often have trouble reminding myself to be confident with them. My hips are shaped in such a way that, even when naked, they could be described as a "muffin top". I could send pictures but I know the focus of this blog is on the labia. I was just wondering if you had considered the idea of a blog about women's hips!
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

I often get asked whether I’ve considered, or would make a blog for bellies, butts, navels, penises, foreseins, scrotums, etc etc. Hips is a new one, but the answer is still no. It’s not “guys” running my blogs, it’s “me” and I barely have enough time to manage them as it is, while having a full-time career and what barely passes for a social life, without adding another blog into the mix.

Plus I also don’t have any interest or passion for other topics, so I wouldn’t do them justice. Labia and breasts are enough for me, thank you.

There is no reason why YOU can’t do this. I had no particular web or blogging skills when I started my blogs. It just takes time and dedication. So as I say to anyone else who asks this, if you feel passionately about it and see the need for a similar log, then why ask someone else to do it for you? Why don’t you make it yourself?

Email Submission: Hi, just turned 18, so wanted to share this! Very very VERY self conscious about my labia… hate the way they dangle so low down! Although they’re even, they’re evenly wrinkly and long :(

Your blog has helped me gain a bit more confidence though! (these were both taken at the same time ahaha)

Thank you ♡

Research Participant: “Vulva Appearance Across The Menstrual Cycle” 

Hi Emma, thank you for your fantastic blog! I’m 38 and until I read your comments on your web site, I didn’t really feel confident about my large labia. I thought they were much larger and “outside” than normal. An ex even called my vulva “the alien”. So charming! Now I see that we are all different and all beautiful. Participating in your monthly project was a great way to help me knowing my body and myself better. It took just a few minutes a day, so quick and easy! Besides contributing to your research, I learnt to pay more attention to my labia. Although I didnt notice any significant changes during my cycle, looking at myself on a daily basis was such a reassuring experience. I now know and love my labia!!!


Anyone willing to take daily photos of their vulva, who menstruates, and wants to be a part of my research, please email me at largelabiaproject@gmail.com for more information. Emma

Email Submission: We call mine the gray vulva. As a teen I was not brave enough to let a boyfriend see my vulva. Now that I’m married and discovered the purpose of my asymmetrical labia, I’m glad they are there. My husband really knows how to get me to euphoria via oral sex only!

I’m an African lady, but for whatever reason it is, my vulva is really darker, almost gray than the rest of my tan skin complexion, that’s why we call it the gray vulva.

I’m glad I don’t have to be fearful of what my husband may think about my vulva’s colour and asymmetrical appearance of the labia minora.

I’v also had a baby, so my vagina canal is pretty wide, but that doesn’t bother me. I cannot regret having our baby!

you took a picture of your own vagina. you're mentally ill arent you
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

Why yes, yes I did photograph myself. Actually there was not so much vagina as there was vulva in the photos, because if you knew anything about female genital anatomy you would know that the vagina is a completely internal part of the body and unless it is stretched wide open the only part of it you’d ever be likely to see is the vaginal corona, commonly called the hymen, so really that’s about all you’d see of mine actually. Vulva, not vagina.

And yes I am mentally Ill. I have been dealing with depression and anxiety-related illness since I was a teenager, and while some people think of it as a slur I think it’s nothing different to saying I have a chronic tendon injury in my shoulder (which I do have if you’re concerned about that too). I appreciate you asking and clearly you’re very perceptive. Should I expect a “get well soon” card? I’d like that.

Oh and I almost forgot, fuck off, arsehole, and don’t ever come back here again.

Love,
Emma

Cyst anon: the pus didn't smell. Neither did my fingers. I get really itchy where it was too. I try not to touch it. But with no smell it seems weird.
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

I’m not a cyst expert, but I have one and that’s what it’s like for me. It’s what my doctor told me to expect too. It probably still is just a cyst but if you’re concerned about it the talk to your doctor again.

Anonymous Question: Hey, I’ve had a lump on my labia majora quite low down. for about 4-5 years. It was about the size of a pea, never hurt or anything. I asked my doctor about it and he said it was a cyst so no need to worry and left it at that. A few weeks ago I was having a touch as I do and notice the lump was hurting. After a few more days, I was touching it, noticed it had gotten bigger and a lot soree. So I squeezed it and it kind of just fell out, a large circle of hard pus just came out of this lump and the lump was just no more. Like it had closed up and now I only have a little white spot where it was. Should I be worried or concerned? Where it was appears to forming a new lump. I’m quite worried seeing as I’ve had this lump since I was about 14/15 and I’m 20 in a coue of weeks. What could it be? Thanks for any input.


I’m guessing that the pus/stuff that came out smelled really bad? And if you squeeze it, and if you smell your fingers, they smell too? Yes, that’s a cyst. If you squeeze a cyst you can sometime squish out the bad smelling muck inside, but, the sac that held that pus will make it all come back, as you’re now experiencing. They aren’t really a problem, unless it hurts like yours did, but the only way to way to get rid of it is to have it cut out, including all of the sac.

Email Submission: Hello, Emma, I’m 28-years-old and appreciate your blog tremendously. 

Although I’ve been working towards accepting my very large labia and your blog has helped, I still feel like my labia are unusual and fear that the way I look will be off-putting for potential sexual partners. I think all the labia on this blog are beautiful but think mine might be the largest and most unusual yet. I also have darker skin around my vulva, anus and inner thighs and this increases my anxiety around my appearance.

Keep up the amazing work.


A few thoughts that may help you feel better:

1. Your labia are normal.
2. Your labia are beautiful.
3. Your labia are not unusual.
4. Your labia aren’t the largest.
5. Who cares if they are? Size is irrelevant. Is a big rose any less beautiful than a small one?
6. Almost all people find almost all vulva attractive.
7. Darker skin pigmentation is normal.
8. All labia are beautiful
9. FUCK YEAH LABIA!

This is large Labia project. Stop posting submissions of pretty little labias, you're making me feel 10x worse :(
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

It’s a shame that you feel that way. I have a few problems with what you said.

It’s not my place, or yours, to make value judgements about how other people perceive their labia. If they believe theirs are large then that’s entirely valid. Your idea of what is large may be totally different to other people. It’s all relative. Some people may think yours are small and by your reasoning you don’t belong here either. Is that fair?

This is primarily about large labia, but it’s also about diversity and I welcome it. On those occasions where people believe they have small labia and want to submit photos, for whatever reason (be it because they have lacked confidence too, or just in solidarity with their sisters around the world) then I will respect their wishes and allow them to contribute. Surely there’s room for other people, regardless of the size of their labia, to feel welcomed and appreciated. I certainly won’t prejudice against people with vulvas who want to be here.

When you say “pretty little labias” what you’re really saying is that you don’t believe larger labia are pretty either, and by extension that yours aren’t. I disagree. Every vulva and every labia is beautiful. Size is not a factor. That’s what this site is about. It’s unfortunate that what I’m doing here doesn’t seem to be helping you; my message isn’t getting through.

Lastly, let me ask you this - why is your self-esteem based on how other people feel about themselves? Would you feel better about yourself if everyone loved themselves? Or if they hated themselves? Do you feel alone because of how you look? Surely if you get nothing else from this site it’s that there are lots of other people like you, and that’s just the people who know about the LLP and wanted to contribute (consider the hundreds of millions of people with a vulva who will never hear about this site). How you feel about yourself should be about you. How someone else feels about themselves is entirely their business. People contribute photos for a lot of reasons, but mostly it’s for their own benefit. They do it for themselves. You don’t need to internalise another person’s feelings or motivations and make it about you. That’s not their problem if you do; it’s yours. I hope you can understand that, and find benefit in this site for what it is.

Hello! I'm from Brazil and I really love your project, it helped me to accept myself and to understand my body. A few days ago I tried to have my first sexual relation but the guy didn't fit you know? There was no space!!! Is there anything wrong with me or is it normal for the first time??
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

Ok firstly, I’m going to try to refocus this blog. Lately it has been increasingly about sex education and while it’s hard to separate vulvas from sex, I want to bring it back to being mainly about labia and anatomy. Questions about sex, virginity, orgasms etc are best answered by far more qualified people on websites devoted to those topics. I’ll post links soon.

But for now, answering your question, my guess is that you weren’t adequately lubricated to allow penetration. The vagina is a very flexible tube, designed to allow babies to be born. No boyfriend will have a penis as large as a baby’s head! If you’re able to insert tampons, fingers or sex toys into your vagina then it’s not a problem with your vaginal size.

First time sex can be stressful and that can be the enemy of vaginal wetness. Vaginas and vulvas are self-lubricating, and everyone will experience different levels of wetness. Being stressed though can easily cause dryness. As can different medications.

Trying to insert a penis in there when you’re dry can be painful, or in your case just not possible at all. If you decide to try again then make sure you’re really wet first. Maybe ask your boyfriend to give you oral sex first, and especially if you orgasm. That way you can make sure you come too, and not just him! You can also use a latex condom-friendly lubricant gel.

There are some psychological / physical conditions which can mean that vaginal penetration is difficult, painful or even impossible - such as vaginismus. If you find that sexual penetration just isn’t possible then it would be worth talking about it with your doctor. Good luck.
