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.
You’re totally normal. Your labia sound like mine - my labia do that too!
Asymmetry is the norm when it comes to labia minora. You have no need to worry or to be self-conscious about your normal anatomy.
Thanks for your kind words :)
No I don’t think that is possible and I don’t agree with her conclusion.
You’d need to be stretching the skin incredibly over a prolonged period of time to have any impact on the size of your clitoral hood.
Honestly, I don’t know. My guess is that unless you’ve had some sort of vaginal trauma (you’d know it as you’d most likely have been bleeding) with your change of partners, and maybe different sex acts, then it has always been there and you’re only now aware of it.
Does it hurt or cause you discomfort? If not, then leave it alone - it’s not a problem and it’s not weird.
But as with any change in your body that you’re worried about, be it a spot on your skin that’s just appeared or is changing, or some sort of growth that you never noticed before, then it can’t hurt to mention it to your doctor.
Yes, weight gain or loss, resulting from changes in your body fat, can definitely affect the appearance of your vulva, specifically your mons pubis (pubic mound) and your labia majora. Their appearance can also be affected by the amount of fat in surrounding areas such as your abdomen, thighs and butt.
Your labia minora, clitoris and clitoral hood have almost no fat cells so weight changes won’t affect them.
It could also be an infected ingrown hair. None of those things are serious conditions, but it may be uncomfortable or painful. It can’t hurt to bring it up when talking to your doctor when you have a check up.
I’m running my first annual survey into your breasts - size, shape, appearance and your feelings about them. I will use the results of the survey to help answer the questions I’m asked every day on www.ourbreasts.org, which mostly boil down to “am I normal?”
The survey asks you to take physical measurements with a ruler, and answer questions about your breast appearance, and feelings about these parts of your body.
Please allow yourself around 30 minutes to complete the survey, and be sure to do this where you will have the comfort and privacy to be topless.
You can do the survey completely anonymously.
These survey is inclusive and all people with breasts are eligible to participate. No cisgender males though please.
There is so little research about breasts and our feelings towards them, so please help me build up some objective knowledge for my site. Everything learned will help to support people who feel insecure about their bodies, and you may learn something about yourself too.
Hi, thanks for writing. The statistics that I quote come from my extensive survey into labia minora size and appearance from 2013. The full results are here: Labia Minora and Vulvar Appearance 2013: Survey Results
The way I asked survey respondents to measure length and width is explained in this graphic from the survey.
Length is essentially the top-to-bottom (or more appropriately front-to-back) measurement, from clitoris to the labial frenulum (where they end down towards the vagina). Width refers to the side-to-side measurement for the labia minora.
I’m so glad you realise how normal you are. You’re far from alone! It’s surprising that you had a different perception of yourself given you work in healthcare. Does that involve seeing lots of naked vulvas?
