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.

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.

What's the fifteen minute challenge?
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

It’s in this post here.

Asker Anonymous Asks:
Hi, I was the one who send you messages about having trouble with masturbating and stuff. Well, I have masturbated since in a sauna and it was quite pleasant and I actually felt beautiful. I just haven't got to do the 15 minute challenge and I feel like I'm probably procrastinating it, but I'm going to try. Anyway, I'm seeing my boyfriend on Friday this week and we'll probably have anal sex 'cause I do enjoy it and I shouldn't feel guilty like you said! Just thought I'd let you know :)
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

Hi, I’m really glad that you’re making progress. I hope it wasn’t a public sauna though, lol, unless you enjoy the added risk of being caught!

Hmmm I think you are procrastinating though. There are a lot of 15 minutes in every day. Of course you should take this at your own pace. But remember you wrote because you wanted things to change, and only you are able to make it happen.

When you’re having anal sex just be sure to take it slowly and use lots of condom-friendly lubricant. The anus isn’t self-lubricating and it is very delicate inside. Why not take the opportunity to masturbate while you’re having sex too? It will mean a bigger turn on for the both of you. And just enjoy it for the intimate moment it is. There is nothing shameful in enjoying anal sex.

Good luck and thanks for writing.

Email Submission: Hi Emma, I submitted photos of my breasts earlier and I wanted to add my vulva to your blog as well. I have battled with an eating disorder for years and am slowly coming to terms with my body, my emotions and am much better in recent times. You and your blogs have helped me so much in coming to terms with myself. I cannot thank you enough.

My labia aren’t large at all, but I have still struggled to like how I look. It’s terrifying and my heart is pounding but I wanted to share and let this by my ‘fuck yeah vaginas!’ moment! Everyone who has sent in photos for your blog is so beautiful.

I also struggle to orgasm but I know now from reading your posts and replies that others are like me too. I will just have to practice more ha ha.

Thank you Emma. You are an inspiration and I love what you do.

My blog has simple needs, but it does have annual expenses including maintaining it’s URL, subscription fees for running surveys, research, website layout, artwork etc. Plus I devote many hours to my sites, often at the expense of my day job and my pay!

To help keep it running, and providing the level of support and information that many people have come to rely upon, I’m asking for small donations from the many visitors and contributors to the site. All monies raised will be applied directly to help continue the work of the Large Labia Project.

Please help by donating - simply click on the button to donate via PayPal or alternatively you can make your donation though GoFundMe.

Thank you, I appreciate your support.

I have had two vaginal deliveries. The first required stitches, the second did not. Honestly, the stitches really didn't hurt. After giving birth without any medication I was so happy to be with my daughter it really was a minor note on one of the best days of my life. Removing the stitches was no big deal either.

I'm glad you're asserting that porn doesn't have all women with big boobs and tiny labia. I watch a fair bit of porn for a girl and I can safely say that porn is an equal opportunities employer! I think the girls who think 'I can't live up to a porn star' actually don't watch porn or have a very distorted view of themselves. I used to work as a nude model and some of my 'colleagues' had big labia, no one ever passed comments on it, people who are experienced with pussy know it's a common thing!

Hey, Emma! I was just wondering whether or not it'd be possible to check for my hymen within the comfort of my home? :) x
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

I don’t really understand your question. What about your hymen are you trying to check? Can you use a small mirror in the bathroom?

Asker Anonymous Asks:
Why do you think my discharge brown? I haven't been sexually active in about 6 months, so I'm not pregnant , I'm sure i don't have disease , it isn't time for my period, and I'm 16.
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

Brown discharge can be caused by a lot of things, from old oxidised blood left over from your period (it’s your uterus and vagina clearing it out), or blood from spotting or ovulation, hormone imbalances and sometimes from hormonal contraceptives, through to other things which are more problematic, like early pregnancy, STDs like gonorrhea, Chlamydia or genital warts, Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) and endometriosis. Here’s some more information about it. 

Oh and do you really know you haven’t got an STD? Have you been tested? According to the US Center for Disease Control in the USA 40% of teenagers have an STD, and 10 million 15-24 year olds catch new STDs every year. So are you really sure?

It can’t hurt to see your doctor for a check up.

To the young woman asking about ripping during childbirth, I have had two vaginal births and did not tear at all with either. I am 5-feet and was 88 lbs (40kg) before getting pregnant. My babies were 7lb 14oz and 8lbs (3.6 kg). I did use olive oil and stretch out my vaginal canal in the weeks before giving birth the first time, but did nothing the second time. I think the most important thing is that my midwife made me slow down in the pushing so that I didn't tear. Hope that helps.
