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.

Dear Emma, I wish you the very best as you work out what to do with your sites. I haven't submitted any photos but I have been very much helped by the work you've done here at LLP. I totally support you in doing whatever you need to do that nurtures yourself and respects your capacity. The good you have already done here is immeasurable. My best to you. Karen

Thanks Karen :)

Personally, I have very small labia. I though every woman looked the way I did, just because I had never been exposed to anyones labia but my own. I was really surprised to see the variety of labia on your blog, and I'm glad your educating people.
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

Thanks for writing. No two people are alike and everyone is unique. Eyes, faces, hair, fingerprints - all different.

But for some reason there seems to be far more variety in the appearance of labia, especially the labia minora. With such diverse colours as browns, tans, pinks, greys, purples, blues and blacks. And variegation of colours with the same lips. And smooth lips and wrinkled lips and ruffles and bumps and crinkles. And small ones that stay hidden inside the labia majora, and large ones that poke out and want to be seen. And the left side different to the right. And more skin, or less skin, on the clit hood, which also comes in a wide range of sizes and shapes. And…I could go on. The thing is that labia are so diverse and that’s what makes them so amazing and wonderful.

Thanks for writing. I really like your tumblr too and your body-positive message. Keep up the good work and fight the good fight. It’s so encouraging for someone so young to be doing that :)

Hey, I'm a 19 years old brazilian girl and I heard about this tumblr trough a leader. It was telling the absurd that many people recur to surgery instead of dealing with psycollogical problems that are caused by society pressures. Here in my country I'm a student and a feminist ativist and I fight for equal rights as I fight for women to feel better about themselves just the way they are. This that you do here it's beautiful as well as inspiring! Congratulations!

I'm 14 and I have a very large labia. I'm struggling very much with it and I find it hard to have confidence. I hate my labia, I'm so insecure that I'm convinced that no guy will ever accept me for it. I'm scared for my future because of it.
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

You’ve no need to worry. You’re normal. And beautiful, and just the way you’re supposed to be.

Labia, like eyes and hair and other body parts, are inherited, so talk to your mum or sisters or a grandmother and you’ll most likely find they are just like you. But if not it doesn’t make you strange. It just means you’ve got genes that go further back in your family line.

As for guys, well almost all guys love all labia, so you have nothing to worry about. And if by chance you ever find one who doesn’t like you for who you are, that’s his problem, not yours. Never internalise other people’s failings. You’re perfect just the way you are.

Hi Emma. I'm a teenage girl.. my large labia minora causes me discomfort. It pinches/rubs agaisnt my underwear. Its seriously very irritating. Is there anything I can do to ease this discomfort? Thanks in advance OH! and another question does labia grow during puberty, because mine weren't always like this..
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

Try changing your underwear. Tighter and more supportive is often better. Test out different styles. Often thongs tend to hold your vulva better. The idea is to minimise movement which causes irritation. And always wear cotton, or at least be sure your panties have a cotton gusset.

Sometimes irritation can be from residual laundry detergent. Try different brands.

I have saggy labia and they hang an inch down from my vagina. It makes me so insecure and it makes me hate myself and even want to kill myself because I feel like no boy will accept it and will think its discusting. I'm insecure in bathing suits too because it comes out of the bathing suit bottoms sometimes. I'm only a teenager and Im thinking of getting surgery
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

Just look through the posts here from other girls and women and you’ll see you’re not alone. You’re not abnormal. You’re not saggy. You’re not disgusting. You are the way you’re meant to be. Large protruding labia are NORMAL and beautiful.

And as for boys, about 95% of surveyed males from 14yo to 60+ think labia of all shapes and sizes are highly attractive. 900+ survey respondents (not sourced through this site) said so.

You have far more value as a person than just your labia, regardless of their appearance. After all it’s just a bit of skin when you think about it, and you’re worth way more than that.

If you’d like to talk to a therapist and get help for the way you’re feeling, especially when you say you’ve thought about taking your own life, please email me at largelabiaproject@gmail.com and I’ll get you someone to talk to, and give you some crisis resources to help you through today, and tomorrow and the next.

I adore this blog! That said, this blog also makes me very sad. I expect that many women are not exposed to the broad range in differences between lady-parts; this does not surprise or bother me. What does disgust me is the endless flow of women, afraid of what a man will think of them because of their appearance. If you're afraid that your (potential) sex partner will be so uncomfortable with your genitals that they might leave or reject you - maybe they aren't really the right person for you.

Im a teenager and I have always been insecure about my labia. Its wrinkly and theres skin hanging down from it like two little balls and its very uncomfortable as well and my inner labia i guess is very noticeable and not thin at all . I have considered getting this "extra" skin removed in the future because of how insecure I really am about it. I feel like Im not normal. What do I do?
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

It’s not extra skin! It’s meant to be there!!!!! You’re normal!!!!

It’s like saying you have earlobes and want to cut off the extra skin. Or your thumb, because it sticks out from your other fingers.

What’s wrong with labia being noticeable? Do you think men worry about people noticing their genitals under their clothing? Why should women worry about theirs being noticeable too? They are external genitalia as well. They are supposed to be there, and nothing wrong with being seen. You’re not a Barbie doll and should want to be one!

As for being uncomfortable, try changing your underwear to be more snugly supportive, wear natural fibres like cotton, and you should avoid chafing or irritation.

I hope this helps.

I am glad I've found this. I've always been insecure about my labia and their size, and even my mom says I should do something about it. I'm 22 yrs old and I had been in a five-year old relationship, but I am still a virgin because I never had enough courage to let him see my vulva. Now the relationship is over for around a year and I'm not sure I will ever get envolved enough with someone again to lose my virginity. But, your blog has helped me at least to make me see it with less shame.
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

Your mother should be more supportive of your normal labia. No disrespect, but not every mother is well-informed about normal female anatomy.

Hopefully continuiing to visit this site will help you realise you’re normal, desirable and that many guys will be thrilled to be with a girl just like you.

Hello I'm 19 and my labia are really long, thick, dark and wrinkly. They're close to 6 cm when stretched, maybe even 7. horrible. They just dangle and I hate the way when I wipe after using the loo they stretch forwards and look disgusting. I hate how they feel and how they look so much and I have not seen any on the internet quite as long and thick as mine
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

Your labia are normal and sound beautiful. 6cm is fine! There are millions of women like you, and even more men who adore women like you. Stop worrying!

Whenever my boyfriend and I make out he keeps telling me that he wants to eat me out but I always tell him no because I feel so insecure about my large labia. The labia sticks out and it a pink/purple color I always hated how large the lips were. I'm scared that when he sees it he will be grossed out. wanted to finger me but I didn't let his fingers slip down my underwear instead he was just touching me there through clothing.
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

Firstly, your body is yours and yours alone, and you’re in charge of what happens to it. If you don’t want your boyfriend to go down on you or finger you, then that’s your choice and he needs to respect it.

But don’t let irrational ideas about your labial appearance get in the way. Protruding labia are normal. Pink and purple coloration are normal. You’re normal.

If you think he’s going to be grossed out, then do yourself a favour and find someone you KNOW will love every part of you. I don’t know how many times I have to say this. Jesus! Don’t you girls ever read what I write in other posts?

Emma

Hi. I’m reading your site and have found myself in tears. I wish I could say they are positive tears but I am BEYOND uncomfortable with myself. I have large inner lips that protrude between my outer. I am 19 and have NEVER received any sexual action as I am too ashamed. The hardest part is I am so CONSCIOUS of the fact that I am 100% NORMAL yet I’m stuck hating myself.

I feel as though they aren’t just ugly but, unclean. Sometimes they stick together when I try and wipe after using the bathroom and they irritate me when I wear clothing as they bunch together.

In the least conceited way, I’m a very attractive girl of an average weight, often receiving men’s attention but it never expands beyond a friendship because my sexual insecurities are even more unattractive than my vagina. I’m too embarrassed to talk to anyone and too smart to have surgery. HOW DO I COPE. How do I stop feeling ugly and unclean, depressed and generally.. somewhat.. sexually frustrated.

If you write to me at largelabiaproject@gmail.com I can put you in touch with the therapist who volunteers with this site, and can help give you some strategies to hopefully help get these feelings under control.

Emma

When are you going to put up results of your survey? I can’t wait to see how I compare on several topics. Pictures help but seeing the number from people that are to shy to post pictures will help me too.

Thanks for all that you do!!

Soon, when I have the time.

this project is awesome and I'm glad to see some visibility on diverse body types, especially since the majority of the sex industry has idealized tiny, pink labia. the only thing is, I've noticed that this page seems to connect vaginas and women. do you think you could hold back on the gendering of vaginas? some guys and nonbinary peeps have large, fancy labia too!
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

Actually you’re wrong, the majority of the sex industry does not have idealised tiny pink labia. That’s a myth, and I can give you a long list of porn sites as a cross section of the industry that have as wide a range of labia as you’ll find in any sampling of women in the real world.

As for gender identity, while I support the rights of people in the LGBTTIQQ2SA communities, the majority of people with vulvas who contribute and contact me are CIS female, and it’s easier as a shorthand to refer to women/girls/females. Even if this doesn’t describe people with vulvas who don’t gender identify as female, know that it isn’t done as a deliberate exclusion.
