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.

Ok so I'm a virgin and I have this fear that my vagina doesn't look right and when that time comes he will reject me I feel so weird!!!!
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

You’re not weird. When the time comes, whoever he is he won’t reject you, but make sure you choose the right guy, and make sure he actually cares about you. And if anyone ever says anything to put you down or make you feel bad in any way then they aren’t worth your time or emotional energy.

Dear Emma, I'm 19 and my labia are largish. Stretched out (great imagery there) i they come out of my outer lips by like an inch and a half. What really bothers me is the fact that having large labia can be really uncomfy. Wearing fancy, all over lace knickers for example (i love fancy underwear!) can be a bit irritating. I also ride a bike (do i need to explain?) and going commando to suprise my bf? Forget about it! Any advice? Great project, thanks :) xxx
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

Thanks for writing. Lace undies always irritate me and I just don’t wear them, so sorry I’m no help for you there.

With your bike riding:
- maybe try a wider saddle, or a narrower one, whichever feels better. My money would be one a wider one.
- Don’t ride wearing jeans or anything with seams running up the front of your crotch.
- Use a gel saddle cover, a sheepskin seat cover or some other padding.

- Try a lubricant used by a lot of pro cyclists (try rubbing it all over your vulva) like Chamois Butt’r
- Invest in some padded riding (horse or cycle) underpants, eg: Equetech, Andiamo Underwear, JellyPantz
- If all that fails, know when to stop before it gets bad.

In general I’d always wear cotton underwear with good coverage of your crotch. G-strings are probably not a good idea. And sorry, lace might be best worn to be immediately taken off.

I hope this helps and good luck!

Submission: “I’m 19 & it wasn’t until I got a little older that I noticed there wasn’t something quite right about my vagina. All my friends had pretty vaginas where as I had large labia. My friends would even talk about large labia & how it would suck to have it. I was self conscious till I lost my virginity when I was 18. He didn’t even care! He was more concerned about getting down to business & pleasuring me! How awesome! Love this blog. It’s important that we all know not to be self-conscious of our womanly parts, after all the only thing you should worry about is having a good time with your goods :-)”_______________
Thanks so much for sharing and for your words of wisdom. I’m so glad you’re now appreciating your vulva for the gift they are. Thanks!

Could I just say, to your most recent submitter who thinks her lips are 'coloured strangely', your colouring is amazing. You should be a painting. It's perfect.

I'm 17 and I have very large outer labia and almost nonexsistant inner labia and its always kind of bothered me and I kinda feel weird because I've not heard or seen that even on this blog.
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

Hi, mostly the contributors here are concerned about their large labia minora, but of course women harbour insecurities about their labia majora too. So just because you don’t see your combination of labia sizes here doesn’t mean you’re unusual. To the contrary, you’re just as normal as anyone here. Labia minora sizes range from, well, nothing at all, through to in excess of 15cm and larger. Yes it’s not as common as labia minora in the 1cm to 5cm range, but that doesn’t mean you’re weird or abnormal. And labia majora can be almost non-existent to rather large too. We’re all unique, and your vulva appearance is just one on the broad spectrum of normal, beautiful pussies. There’s nothing to worry about.

I’ve always been incredibly insecure about my vagina. My lips are long, thick, and colored strangely. Sometimes they even get in the way of sex, and actually cause lots of discomfort. I’ve had people make rude comments to me while hooking up, but I try not to listen to them, and discontinue being intimate with them. Even compared to the people who submit to this blog, I still feel like an outcast. I’m with someone now who truly loves my body, including my lips, and I’m trying to feel the same way about myself. And thank you for running this blog, it really is a wonderful project!

Thanks for having the courage to contribute here, and I hope it helps you to overcome your lack of confidence about your vulva. Hopefully you’ll be able to appreciate your labia and love them the way your partner does. When I look at your lips I see labia that look very normal. And if you don’t mind me saying they are really very attractive.

Darker pigmentation is very common, and roughly 30% of Caucasian women have labia pigmentation that isn’t the pornstar pink people seem to think is the way they should be. Browns, greys, purples and black shades are very common. Some women have that all over their labia. Some just the tips. Some have colours blending from one to the other.

Large and think, yep perfectly normal too. If they get in the way sometimes when having sex, my advice is to make sure you’re well lubricated and ready for sex, either your own lube or something like KY. Hold them out of the way when first being penetrated and/or choose positions where it’s doesn’t cause problems. I’ve heard it said many many times that guys and girls really love seeing large labia wrap around their cocks / toys during sex, so I imagine that’s the same with your partner too.

As for anyone who has said negative things about your labia, well unfortunately there’s a large number of idiots on the planet, and you’ve managed to find some of them. That’s a shame, but it looks like your taste in partners is improving. You’re not responsible for other people’s ignorance and insensitivity. Stick with your current partner. They know a good thing when they see it.

Thanks for sharing. I hope you learn to love your beautiful vulva soon.

Submission: “Hi Emma, I want to say thank you so much for creating this, you have no idea how much it’s helping me, specially your website with all the vagina photos. When I was about 12 years old, one of my friends told me I had an ugly and weird vagina. Since then, I was so ashamed of it and I wanted to do the surgery because I thought I was the only one like this. Now at 18 I saw all the photos I can tell, I’m just normal!”

Thanks for writing. Clearly you’re not the only one with normal vulva, and really, 12 year old kids have such a narrow world-view and limited experiences, so aren’t the best judges. I can understand though how the opinions formed at a young age can influence your self-image for  long time. I’m so glad that you now know you’re beautifully normal. It’s great to hear that this site helps. The more voices like yours coming here and saying “we are normal” helps too, so you’e welcome, thank you!

Submission:I really am so glad that you started this blog. I am 38 years old and have always found my extra-long labia to be a problem. My ex-husband didn’t like them. He made fun of them sometimes. But now with my divorce final, I started to worry that nobody would like them. Until recently that is. I started dating this guy and loves my labia. He says he doesn’t know what it is, but he loves them. Doesn’t even want me to trim the hair down there. He likes the way that it looks and feels against him. I believe a lot of my new confidence comes from you and the brave ladies on here. Thank you again!”

Thanks so much for your kind words. Is it any wonder your ex is your ex. What a wanker. I’m glad you’re happy now and with someone who understands and appreciates what a normal woman is, and who loves you for the person you are.

I'm 17 and recently started seeing a guy. We were making out the other night and it was leading to him fingering me. I wanted it bad but at the same time I was so nervous that he wouldn't like what he'd see. I ended up giving him permission to go further and was waiting for the "ew" comment, but he didn't say anything. Without this page I wouldn't have felt comfortable to do anything so thank you very much. Now I'm as happy as ever :)
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

I’m really glad that you’re a happy bunny, and that you now realise that there’s nothing wrong, unattractive or undesirable about your vulva. Congratulations :)

I just wanna say that i think what you're doing here is great and that, while I have never felt insecure about my genitals I know several women who have and I'm glad that somebody took the time to create something to reassure those women that they're normal and that there's nothing wrong with them.

I don't have a question, I just happened upon your site via the Huffington Post and I love it! I spent much of my teens and early twenties feeling insecure about what my genitals look like. Watching a lot of amateur internet pornography and seeing the genitals of normal women helped me to be more accepting of my own.

Emma, this website is amazing. I wish more males saw it, and realized that there are different types of labia out there! I have a large labia and have felt self conscious. I even considered labiaplasty because I was afraid any future partners would dislike it. It's funny, because any other part of my body (whether I like it or not)... I would NEVER change for someone else. I am not longer considering surgical altering myself, especially for a guy! Pft! I'm learning to love myself. Thank you!

Hey I have been really self conscious from a young age about my labia! I have large inner labia and my mother had large outer labia so I always thought it was not normal! I really struggled with it in middle school becauseI was in a swim suit and one of my friends said her sister was like that because she was loose. But about a year ago when I was 15 I was looking up ways to fix it once I was 18 and I stumbled across your blog and it really helped me! Now I am super proud of my labia.
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

I am so pleased that you realise you’re normal and beautiful. Congratulations!

That whole “loose” thing is a myth by the way, completely racist, and started in the 1800s with the assumption that African women were sexually deviant and sluts. Google “Saartjie Baartman” and “Hottentot Apron” and you’ll see where a lot of this negativity and ignorance surrounding large labia came from. It’s amazing it still persists today!

Submission: “Hey. I’m eighteen and I’m coming to realize I’m very insecure about the look of my vagina. I have a lot of excess hair, which I know is fixable but I don’t want to be completely bald and hair removal in such an area is difficult for me as I have incredibly sensitive skin and it may wind up hurting, and I don’t like that, but I also have a huge excess of ugly skin at the very top of the vagina. I haven’t seen another vagina like it and it makes me kind of upset. I’m usually very confident, but… “
_______________

Excess hair? Excess ugly skin? Really? Pubic hair and labial/clit hood skin is perfectly normal, and “excess” implies that it’s more than what’s normal. There is nothing to be “fixed”. You’re normal! That’s just bullshit to imply otherwise.

Shaving or waxing your pubes is just fashion, and the totally smooth look is only really in the last decade (driven by porn’s desire to show even more genital detail in close-ups - hard to see all that hi-res detail with hair in the way). Do it, don’t do it, it really doesn’t matter. If you have sensitive skin, then be careful and if hurts then don’t do it again. Nobody can make you do it. And in fact there’s a growing trend and movement towards pubic hair - I know, I have people write to me alllllll the time )about it (yawn….take the hint people).

As for your excess of ugly skin I find that very hard to believe. What makes you think it’s ugly? What makes you think there is an excess? Your vulva was designed that way just for you. There’s nothing wrong with that at all. The vulvae shown on this site aren’t representative of every individual look (yet) because there is such a huge variety and depth of appearances all classified as normal. And beautiful. As I’m sure you are too. Write to me at largelabiaproject@gmail.com and prove me wrong.
