Hello, i've just turned 14, and im extremely embarrassed about my labia, im extremely concious aout them and daren't wear shorts or bikini's or anything. In my family we do have large labia and im well aware of that, but mine are enormous and chafe to the point to infection. I often get infection due to them and i avoid the idea of anyone ever seeing me. Should i consider the idea of getting them removed? Am i too young to get it done in the uk? and how would i go about it? Please help x

Thanks for writing. Labiaplasty is an extreme reaction to a problem that is probably best managed by far simpler means.

Firstly if you are prone to infections then it is always best to seek medical advice and get your infection cleared up.

I would then look at the type of knickers you wear, and if you notice any particular pair, or style, affects you more, then don’t wear them. Usually wearing undies that more tightly support your vulva and prevent movement will be more comfortable. Chafing is caused by friction, so if you stop the movement, you stop the chafing. Always wear cotton or natural fibre underwear, and especially with a cotton gusset.

Since you know that large labia are in your family, then talk to your mum, sisters or other female relatives you feel comfortable with, and ask if they have any non-surgical strategies for labial comfort.

it might veen be worth taking the lead from cyclists and using a lubricating cream to prevent chafing and irritation.

Labiaplasty is the last resort, and is not recommended. Don’t automatically think that cutting off your lips, your birthright, is going to be a magical cure. You’ll be robbing yourself of a beautiful part of your body, expose yourself to the risk of infections and other surgical complications like tearing and shredding, and remove vast numbers of nerve endings designed to provide sexual pleasure and assist in orgasm. There are better, safer, easier and cheaper ways to have comfortable labia.

Is it normal to have one very long labia and one barely there at all? My labia looks asymetrical. I'm 16 and I'm starting to have sexual experiences (legally) but I am so uncomfortable with my vagina that I won't let anything go that far. I look at this blog regularly and I don't see anything wrong with anyone else's labias because they are all symmetrical but then I look at mine and they just look absolutely awful. I have a feeling if a boy is inexperienced he'll comment on it. Am I normal?? :(
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

There’s nothing wrong with you. You’re normal. Clearly you’re not looking at the site very well because asymmetry comes up fairly frequently. Look at my photos of my own vulva, for example, because my labia are different sizes, shapes and textures. A boy might comment on it if he’s inexperienced. Most likely “wow!” but if he doesn’t know what a normal vulva looks like, and there are many different variations in appearance, just tell him it’s normal, and don’t let that get in the way. If you’re confident with your own body that’s the sexiest thing you can have.

I first want to say that I posted a picture of my labia a while ago, on the night I decided to cancel my labiaplasty; I received very supportive feedback, and have been working on building vagina-esteem since then.

I think the pussy-pride spirit of this blog is wonderful. But I want to offer an approach that is a little different.

While this blog focuses on repeating reassurances like ‘your vagina is sexy, your vagina is normal’- I have had a difficult time accepting and internalizing these affirmations. It always feels like I am trying to convince myself of something I know in my heart isn’t true. Maybe I’ll truly believe it one day, maybe I won’t. But I don’t think that I necessarily have to.

I’ve found it more helpful to confront the reality that my vagina is not sexy to most men. My labia are bigger than average, and it’s not what men are used to. That doesn’t mean they are assholes. That doesn’t mean they are Neanderthals. It means that they live in the same culture as I do, consume the same porn as I do.

I have great respect for Emma, the creator of this blog, who works tirelessly to help create a space in the world where all vaginas are accepted and eroticized. But in my life, I am not particularly interested in participating in the revolution of expanding people’s tastes in body types.

I am in my mid-twenties, not in a relationship, and I have casual sex with different partners. None of them have been rude. All of them have been happy to have sex with me. But every time I have sex with a new person, I have to accept the fear that they might be turned off by my labia. No amount of me convincing myself that my vagina is desirable will affect their thoughts about my body. I have to confront the fact that they will compare my body to the bodies of other girls they have slept with. That fear is not going to go away, and it doesn’t feel healthy to be in denial about the possibility of rejection.

For me, I’ve found that the key to self-acceptance isn’t convincing yourself through daily affirmations that your body is attractive, and that others ought to find you attractive or there’s something wrong with them. I believe it’s in having a sense of humor about your body and- at least for any girl considering surgery-  to be able to say truthfully: I might not love the way I look, but I love myself for being strong enough to resist the temptation to change it.


Thanks for considering my perspective! <3

I used to have to come here daily because of my insecurities, read others stories but as the days go by I don't have to. Not because your blog isn't of use to me it's because it was the best of use to me ever. I'm growing more confident with my labia that I don't have to constantly come back to make myself feel better by seeing I'm not the only one. Now I know I'm not the only one and I'm very proud of my body. (If this makes any sense) I have you & all the others to thank X

I'm 25 and have longer labia. I struggled with that for a long time, and then sites like this educated me and made me feel better about myself. I started a relationship with a emotionally mature man 13 years my elder, and I've told him about my past experiences with insensitive lovers. He is the total opposite of them. He lavishes attention upon my lady bits, and makes me enjoy myself so much. So seriously, don't beat yourselves up. There are men and women out there who love what you've got!

This whole culture of I want an 'innie' or smaller lips is really bizarre to me. I'm pretty much the opposite of most girls here. Instead of learning to embrace that large labia is beautiful, I'm slowly learning to embrace that the non-existent labia are. I have LL myself so I'm biased but pics of girls with just a slit- their clit is hidden and they have no lips protruding- SOOo weird (to me) and unfeminine!! Just goes to show- everyone has some work to do on accepting all types of labia!

Ive looked through SOOOOOO many pictures of the labia that have been submitted. Ladies. I promise you, they are ALL NORMAL. I promise they are normal. Labia are like any other body part, they are different, no two are alike. Stop comparing yours to others. They are supposed to be different.

Email Submission: “I am very insecure about my labia minora because they are very asymmetrical. I talked to my boyfriend about it and his only response was, “oh.” I didn’t know what he thought about it and it bugged me. I have been embarrassed about it since i was 14 and when I would wear spandex it would show and I constantly worried about it. I never changed in front of people in the locker room because I didn’t want to be made fun of. I eventually had another talk with my boyfriend recently of what he thought about it because still it was bugging me. he said, “I think you are beautiful no matter what.” That gave me more confidence. Though, it’s still an insecurity, I feel more comfortable with my boyfriend. So if you have the same problem, talk to your significant other about it and if they don’t accept it, or if they don’t think you are beautiful in every single way, you really don’t need them in your life.”

Thanks for being brave and sharing here. I am slo glad you were brave and raised your insecurities with your boyfriend. Getting past irrational body issues will help make for a far more relaxed and enjoyable sexual relationship, and your self-esteem will flow through to other parts of your life. Thanks for your positive message :)

Oh and for the record I think your vulva looks really pretty!

Your website is really helping me. I've always been aware, from watching porn, that I have rather large labia and I always got worried about it. I got extremely worried when my boyfriend said that he loves eating girls out. He's seen me before, but only from afar. He's not a jerk or anything, but I overreact a lot. I feel so much more confident about my labia, and seeing other normal pictures helps me feel better about my pubic hair, too! Thank you to everyone here <3

Maybe look at the documentary 'Labiatrekken' on youtube (it's in parts). It explores how African people do labia pulling. They do it to INCREASE sexual pleasure for both partners. They are so sexually aware of themselves and give tips for what to do with them to increase pleasure. So when I hear Western girls say- my labia get in the way or my clitoral hood hides my clitoris I am like wtf???? Do you girlies know your anatomy or what sex is about!!! But definitely watch it it's very interesting!

I am a woman from Uganda, but am currently in Botswana. It is strange that some western communities consider large labia women to be easy and loose. That is not my experience at all. In my community it is what is expected of a REAL woman. A COMPLETE woman. In the past you could even divorce your wife if she didn't have long labia! It's also necessary here for a REAL man to make his woman feel beautiful and pleasured. But in west it seems women job to make the man pleased- even to cut your lips!!

Wow! Was that dickhead gyno a male?? I'm noticing more and more stories of male doctors suggesting to female patients that their lips are large. Which just adds an even more misogynistic tone to this whole labiaplasty bullshit. Does your resident website gyno and GP reassure girls/women that they their labias are fab as they are? Or have they had to deal with insecure girls at all?? I hope they are fighting against the battle of vulva shame!!

The doctors and therapist who help here are very sensitive to women with body issues and reinforce a body-positive message. They are also photo contributors themselves to my Labia and www.OurBreasts.tumblr.com blogs.

Oh my Gosh!! I had NOOOO idea that this was such an issue for some girls. When you are sleeping with a guy or dating a guy you shouldn't even be giving your labia any thoughts!! Apart from how beautiful they are or how wet they're getting when you see your partner etc lol! I know it's easier said than done- but being self conscious or cutting them won't make the haters stop hating, it won't make the arse holes you girls happen to date be nicer. Embrace your vulvas and choose wisely who you fuck!

I really don't think that these girls/women are really get how serious this vulva hate is. They just seem to think of it as 'Oh are mine pretty or not' or 'will they please my boyfriend'. It's like they're bending over backwards to please ignorant boys or to get their attention or something. The boys should feel lucky just to get to see in between your legs and sleep with you. It's like girls of today think they're being empowered by their easiness, but all they're doing is sleeping with morons!
