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.

Email Submission: I never heard of labia shaming until I came across an article about labiaplasty about a year ago. It made me angry this was one more arena women are made to feel insecure about. As if we aren’t groomed to be self-conscious enough about our weight and breast size.

And lo, apparently I have large labia myself. :)

Thank you for the awesome blog! Pussy pride!

Anonymous Submission: This is the first time I’ve taken photos of my vulva in order to share them. I’ve never been too concerned with how it looked as I was hardly ever sexually active. When that time comes though, I feel like I will be very concerned with showing myself off.

My labia minora are very dark; they’re wrinkled and covered in small bumps when I stretch them out and examine them. And then, the opening to my vagina is then a red/pink. I have quite fair skin so one of only concerns would be about the coloring of my vulva, but looking at this blog I’ve come to realise that this multicolor-ing is perfectly normal!

I’m also concerned about my pubic hair. I don’t know how to style it, it seems that it goes into the creases of my labia and I think it would hurt to remove it. I don’t really want to remove it unless my partner wanted me to.

My last concern is to my anus, which seems to have a hernia but I’m not certain. I feel too embarrassed to explain what it is to potential future lovers and I don’t know myself. Like the pubic hair, I don’t think I’d want to fix it unless my partner wanted me to..

I came to the conclusion that while there is a possibility that my vulva is unattractive, it doesn’t actually cause me any disgust or discomfort and for that reason alone I think that however it (and other vulvas alike) looks shouldn’t matter!

1) It does its job, and

2) it’s just skin. Seeing other people with colourful vulvas or non-pornstar genitals makes me feel proud to be apart of this spectrum of vulva diversity! Viva la pussy pride!

And lastly, thank you for this blog xx


I’m glad you decided to contribute to my blog, because someone needs to reassure you that you’re normal and beautiful. Your vulva is gorgeous, and the coloration from lighter pink to darker tips is delightful. You’ve nothing to worry about.

How you decide to style your pubic hair is entirely up to you, regardless of what a sexual partner might want.

The small bumps you’re mentioning are probably Fordyce spots, and most people have them - it’s very common and normal.

Well I don’t know a lot about anuses but that could be a small hemorrhoid. I don’t know if it’s anything needing to be “fixed”, and embarrassing as it is, it might be worth talking to your doctor the next time you go for a check up.

I’m glad that you’re accepting (maybe even beginning to love?) your labia and wanting to spread Pussy Pride. You’re beautiful, and why shouldn’t the world know it? :)

Email Submission: I am almost 30 and have found myself just now discovering my lips creases, curves, ripples, and yet felt they were abnormal somehow. I talked with my husband and asked if he thought they looked like cauliflower and hideous and he said no, they are beautiful, he loves them, and he is the one who has to look at them not anyone else, but I still felt insecure, until I found your blog! What an amazing, educational, and empowering project! Each woman’s lips are uniquely designed and beautiful. Thank you for empowering me to love my own lips. I’m still insecure, but maybe my insecurities are shared by others with large wrinkly labias. Thank you for doing this. And to all those who have submitted their own, Brava!

I have a very short barely there kinda labia minora and a long labia majora, and I wa VERY embarrassed of it until I found this blog. I even asked my boyfriend and he told me he likes how he can feel my labia rubbing against his penis, and since he is quite long, sometimes it's difficult to go deep, and I guess my labia makes up the distance! Go body positivity!

Thanks to your blog, whenever I see an orchid flower (which the grocery store has) I thinks "hey that looks like a vulva". I don't think it's all that bad because it makes me laugh:)

hi! your blog has helped me so much thank you. so recently I went to the gyno for my depo shot and I asked for a pap smear, weirdly the doctor said she cannot legally do that because I'm not yet 18 (I'm 17) and they can't look down there. I promise those were her words. I thought this was weird but I just started going by myself so I'm not sure?? thanks
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

According to www.cancerscreening.gov.au if you are over 18 and have ever had sex, you should have regular pap smears, even if you no longer have sex. This includes male to female, and female to female sex, and means penetrative and oral sex (vaginal and anal), fingering and mutual masturbation - essentially any skin-to-skin sexual contact.

There is no need to have pap smears earlier than 18, even if you started having sex earlier.

I don’t know about the legalities of administering the test to people younger than 18, and that would vary from place to place. Regardless the advice is to only start at 18 anyway if you’re sexually active.

I’m glad my blogs have helped you :)

Hi Im 14, and I am not looking to do anything sexual, I don't masterbate or anything but I was curious about my body probably about a year ago and took a look down there. I am half phillipino and have what you can consider small/ medium darker labia . I was scared there was something wrong with me, if guys would think that's weird if they ever saw it later on in life. I've also seen my friends and only a few have them .. I have one friend who seems to have none. Can I have input?
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

Hi, I’m not sure whether you’re concerned about your labial size or colour - both of which sound perfectly normal. There’s huge diversity in labial appearance. Sizes range from pretty much nothing, to over 15cm / 6” in width. Colours can be anywhere from pink, brown, purple, blue, grey or black, and any blend and shade in between. Lots of people have darker outer edges of the labia minora. Lots have more than one colour. Most people’s labia are darker than the rest of their skin. And typically people from races with darker skin tend to have darker labia.

Don’t worry about what guys think. It’s a fact that pretty much all guys love pretty much every vulva. Worrying what guys think about is a non-issue. When you’re older and do get naked with guys they will be thrilled.

Masturbation, by the way, is a very good thing. It’s been stigmatised forever, but the reality is that most people do it, and it’s a really important way to get to know your body, your sexual response, what feels good, and how to have an orgasm. If you don’t know how to pleasure yourself and hopefully achieve orgasm, then you can’t expect a sexual partner to know. People who have vulvas need to learn how to orgasm and practising through masturbation is the key to that. Don’t ever feel bad about getting to understand and enjoy your own body.

And when you go to a clinic, what do you ask? (If you have these dark spots?) A normal check up? Or do you have to ask for something specific? It's really embarrassing. :$
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

It’s just a check up, and you shouldn’t have to specify what you’re there for when booking it in. If the doctor who sees you wants an opinion from a dermatologist for example, that would come later.

While it’s embarrassing for you, to the doctor your body and your concerns are no different to the hundreds or thousands of others they’ve seen before. Seen one, seen them all. While a good doctor will be compassionate remember that they really don’t “care” anywhere near as much as you do. Consider them a mechanic for bodies. She won’t judge; she’ll just do her job.

Hey I JUST came on tumblr and saw what you said. Thank you so much. But I also have a dark spot on my nipple? (Just my luck huh? ;-;) is it the same thing? Sorry if this isn't exactly the place to ask these things heh...
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

Again it’s probably nothing, but I really couldn’t say and I’m not medically qualified to offer an opinion. While you’re getting the spot on your vulva looked at by a doctor ask her to look at your breast as well.

Asker Anonymous Asks:
Hi, I saw that anon worrying about that dark spot on her vagina. Hopefully if she sees this, i had the exact same thing!! The doctors had no idea what it was and i thought it was relatively harmless. They removed it just in case, but there was seriously nothing wrong with it after they did a check of it. Completely harmless. Tell her not to worry!! I was 15 at the time too! It was quite embarrassing having to go for check ups, but worth it in the end.

Thank you for answering! And I'm from Canada and there's a big waiting list at our local clinic. And it's a pretty big brownish spot (not a mole) that I THINK keeps getting bigger. I feel helpless and I feel like if I keep waiting it'll get worse.
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

You’re welcome. Keep on the waitiing list, unless you can see a doctor somehow sooner (via your dad). If it’s noticeably growing or changing then it’s worth getting checked out. It’s probably nothing to worry about but it’s best to be sure. Good luck!

Is it normal for my labia majora to be big? Like big to the point where I have to spread them apart to see my clit... Also what do I do about the smell... I'm not a thigh gap girl my thighs touch... At all times... #insecure #hatemylabia
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

1. Yes totally normal for labia to be large enough to be able to do that. Don’t worry, they’re normal.

2. All vulvas and vaginas are supposed to have a smell. If it’s a very unpleasant smell though, especially if there’s smelly vaginal discharge, then you could have an infection, like thrush or possibly an STI. If so, it’s best to see a doctor.

Also, when bathing, you shouldn’t use soaps or cleansers to wash your vulva, and NEVER inside your vagina. Make sure to wash (I’d strongly recommend daily for good hygiene) but only use water to wash your vulva. Don’t use sprays, douches etc. It will badly alter the natural PH and bacterial balance that exists inside your vagina.

Hey um there's a big dark spot next to my clit and also some darkish round spots near my hole. I'm so scared and I asked my dad to make a docter's appointment but he's not taking it seriously. I'm scared it's cancerous. Please please help me. I'm 15.
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

Don’t jump to conclusions and think the worst. It’s probably something totally benign. If they look like moles or freckles then chances are they are moles or freckles. You can get them without sun exposure. It could also be other forms of skin pigmentation that aren’t a problem at all. But of course as you’re really worried then do keep pushing your dad until you can see a doctor. If nothing else it’s good to have a check up.

And are you able to see your doctor by yourself? That might be dependent on where you live and the rules surrounding that.
