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.

Hi emma! I have a large flap type thing on one side of my vagina, yet there's none on the other side. I was wondering if that's normal, or if it's a problem, since it's very concerning to me.

Asymmetrical labia minora are the norm. Most people have it to some degree. Check out these posts and you can see that my labia are like that too. Don’t worry, you’re fine.

Hello! My little sister was wondering what "these bumby dots on the big flap thing" is. I don't really know myself, so decided to come to you for help.

They are most likely Fordyce spots, which are normal, common and benign. If she’s worried then it’s best to see a doctor for peace of mind.

To the girl who stopped being able to orgasm the same way... Hormonal birth control completely dulled my ability to orgasm unless it was super fast & hard & it took much longer. Perhaps since she's 15 she started the pill she had the same effect

is there a way I can view just pictures of submissions, i'm curious if mine are as bad/better than other people's.. I've always been super self conscious about my labia minors since I was in 6th grade :(
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

You can try browsing the site archives. Let me stop you there with one thing you said - there is no such thing as bad/better/worse labia. There is only different. It’s not a competition. All you’ll find here is different.

Dear Emma, I have quite a tight vagina. So much so that even with natural, and artificial lubricant, penetration is still uncomfortable and quite painful :( it's putting me off sex completely as I don't want to go through the pain. I am turned on and have done an hour of foreplay and it's still the same problem. Any ideas? I plan on visiting my doctor but thought I'd ask some friendly advice first! x

I have never used a tampon and my boyfriend at the time new I was a virgin before we had sex. I didn't bleed nor dod it hurt. Just a little discomfort. We had plenty of sex after and it wasn't great. I didn't orgasm ever only he would right after like 3 minutes of stroking. One day he asked why it was loose, he thought that for me being a virgin it should've been tighter. He said this in a very nice manner. His penis would also slip out at points. is my vagina wide ? Was he small ?

Sexually Transmitted Infections STI’s and Women’s Health

According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, only 14% of men and 8% of women believe they could get a sexually transmitted infection (STI), but more than half of all people in the U.S. will be infected in his or her lifetime. Sexually transmitted infections are transmissible through blood, semen, vaginal secretions, and other bodily fluids. Some STIs, such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, and trichomoniasis, are often asymptomatic and go undiagnosed. If left untreated, some infections may lead to complications such as pelvic inflammatory disease and infertility.

It just makes me so frustrated that I don't feel anything from penetration. It's just something inside of me no pleasure whatsoever. Am I broken? Shouldn't I at least be able to feel a little something? I've always dreamed of having penetrative sex and it being amazing but now that I've done it and didn't get any gin out of it I can only think that it's point less to do...
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

You’re not broken.

People experience sexual pleasure in different ways. Some people really get a lot of stimulation from vaginal penetration, and others get very little at all. Typically the vagina only has pleasure sensing nerve endings at the very entrance. Deeper inside most people don’t feel much at all. That’s all pretty normal.

If you’re looking for more reliable sexual sensation the place to be is the clitoris. The clitoris is an orgasm machine. It serves no other purpose than giving sexual pleasure. Around 30% of people who have vulvas regularly experience an orgasm from penetrative sex alone. About 50% of people with vulvas have experienced it at least once in their lives. 19% only reach orgasm if their clitoris was simultaneously stimulated, and 29% reported never orgasming during intercourse under any circumstances (Hite, S. (1976). The Hite Report.)

For those people that do orgasm from vaginal sex, it takes them an average of 20 minutes to get there. Compare that to the average time from when the penis is inserted into the vagina until ejaculation, which is less than three minutes. 

Male and female anatomy, and the position of the bodies during sex, doesn’t always mean that the clitoris will be stimulated by your partner’s body during vaginal penetration. The media, movies etc have developed this myth that people with vaginas always orgasm from penetration alone, and that both partners orgasm together at the same time and it’s wonderful and earth shattering and amazing. And it can be. Rarely. But real people and real sex isn’t generally like that.

So please feel free to masturbate during sex, before or even during penetrative vaginal sex. Doggie position, or positions where you’re being penetrated from behind, makes this really easy to do as you can reach between your legs without an obstructions Or you can ask your partner to masturbate you, or ask them to give you oral sex. Personally I always try to orgasm before a male partner does because invariably after they come they pretty much lose all interest. So I either take care of it myself with my fingers or a toy, and/or really enjoy receiving oral sex.

Vaginal intercourse, whether you orgasm from it or not, can be a wonderful and intimate experience that brings you and your partner closer together emotionally, so please don’t write it off as a waste of time.

Hello, I need some advice on something scary that happened to me. I was on my period and using tampons like I have been for years now. I think when I lost my virginity a little piece of flesh was left in there and it pokes out sometimes. Anyway upon trying to remove the tampon, I found it was stuck inside me, HOOKED THROUGH this dangling piece of flesh inside. I had to pull it out by the actual tampon itself because the only way it would come out is if I pulled the string back through.
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

I’m not really sure what you mean, but if this is the only time it has ever happened in years of using tampons then it’s probably nothing to worry about. If it’s an ongoing problem and causes you pain then you could ask a doctor about it.

hi, i'm really embarrassed about this but here goes nothing: i am only 15 years old but have been masturbating since i was 11. in the beginning everything was great; i had amazing orgasms and my body reacted well to my own touch, but since about a year now i can only orgasm if i only stimulate my clit and do it very roughly (and super fast), otherwise i don't feel anything. could this be caused by masturbating too much? (there has been a time when i was addicted to it..)
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

Sexual arousal and orgasm is as much mental as it is a physical response. Things change, feelings change, tastes change. If you’re able to orgasm, whether it’s by a soft touch, or harder and faster as you describe, then hey, you’re still able to orgasm. And if you like it, the way it is now, then it is’t a problem.

I very much doubt that masturbating a lot would have caused this, at least not physically, unless you somehow suffered physical trauma because of it. I can imagine some mental or emotional problem though, depending on your attitudes to masturbation, your family’s attitudes, religious beliefs, feelings of guilt or shame, whether you use porn for sexual arousal and the types you may like to watch etc. I’m not a doctor or psychologist so I could only speculate.

If you want it back how it was then maybe try going masturbation-free for a month, and then see what touch turns you on after taking a break.

as a gay lady, who is self-concious about her own labia too, i just want to say that i have not seen a single set of labia on this website that aren't absolutely beautiful. seeing the pictures of your gorgeous vaginas is so amazing; they are all so different, yet all so pretty. i hope every single ~woman~ on this blog finds peace with their body, because honestly, you are all beautiful :)

Hi Emma. I actually know that it's asked cerainly for over 100 times already. But I need a answer personaly for myself. Well, I'm very unconfident and insecure cause of my large labia minora . You can see my labia minora clearly between my labia majora. Sometimes I think it doesn't look that bad actually but on other days I feel very insecure. I'm afraid about that someday,when I have a boyfriend he hates it. I know if he judge me 'cause of that he doesn't love me the right way. But pls help me!
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

Yes I have answered pretty much the same question many times and I’ll refer you to the FAQ, and previous Q&A posts, many of which talk about this and have my thoughts on the subject.

What you need to understand is that you are normal. Having clearly visible labia minora between your labia majora is normal. Around 505 of people with a vulva have protruding (poking out) labia minora.

You already know that if a guy doesn’t appreciate your normal anatomy then he’s not the right guy for you, because he’s either an idiot or an arsehole. Idiots and arsehole guys do exist, but most guys do understand, appreciate and like normal anatomy like yours (I have survey proof of this), and you really have nothing to worry about.

Everything in life has risks, as does choosing a sexual or romantic partner. But you can do things to minimise those risks, like really getting to know the guy as a person first before showing him your vulva. If you know he’s a good, caring, decent person who likes you for you, then you shouldn’t have anything to worry about with any part of your body, personality or anything else. And if by some small chance you do know him first, and he still turns out to be a turd, then that’s just bad luck, but it’s 100% his problem. You dodged a bullet in getting too involved with an idiot, but he missed out on having a relationship with wonderful you.

I’m not sure what else I can tell you to make you feel better.

I have a large labia minora, and it bothers me so much I hate it. I try to look at all the other women on your blog, and how much they like it but I just can't stand mine. It's wrinkly, and dark. I really want to get labiaplasty, but the skin around my clit is kind of.. saggy? It isn't like taught you know. Would it look weird to have smaller labia minora, and a more saggy clit?
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

It would look weird if you had labiaplasty. Wrinkly and dark is normal. It would be much better if you devoted more energy towards working out why you hate yourself, and why you think there’s something so wrong about your genitals that you feel the need to have them sliced off with a scalpel. Before you go any further down the (irreversible and risky) path towards surgery, would you please invest a small amount of your time and money and talk to a psychologist or counsellor specialising in body image disorders? Your body is normal. But your body image is distorted. You can’t fix an mental and emotional problem with a scalpel. You should talk with a professional about it.
