I'm not sure if it's okay to ask right now or not. I'm new to your blog and it seems very helpful and comforting. I am 15, a girl of course and I've recently became more conscious about my "Lady Area". I noticed that my Labia(?) on the inside protrudes more ( A few centimetres) than the outside Labia. I've always been confident about my body and accepting of it. But as I hit puberty and began to notice these changes it's made me less confident. Is this normal? Would boys find it weird? Thanks☺️
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

Hi, of course it’s ok to ask. I’ve decided there’s no way I can run this site without answering questions. Alright, let me reassure you that there’s nothing wrong with you. You’re totally normal. About 50% of people who have vulvas have labia minora that protrude from in between the labia majora. Some people by a little, some people by more. There’s no reason to lack confidence about it. It’s not unattractive. On the contrary. I can assure you that many many people would find it incredibly attractive.

Look what you’ve got is normal genital anatomy. The amazing thing about vulvas is that they have just about the widest range of appearances, from person to person, of any body part. They can vary in size, shape, colour and skin texture. They are more noticeably varied than eyes, hair and body shapes. And like your fingerprints and your face, they are 100% unique.

Whether or not boys will appreciate or understand the differences is hard to say. And it will depend on the boy in question. Some will be more aware and well-educated. It’s not as if genital diversity is taught at school. Textbooks rarely describe the diversity, and that often leaves it up to porn to be the teacher (what a travesty) and then their own personal experiences. Larger labia minora aren’t rare, and in spite of the mythology to the contrary, people with larger labia are shown in porn. It all depends then on what porn your future boyfriends consume, and if they have had prior sexual experiences, they may have been with girls with small ones, big ones, or anything in between. Honestly lots of boys would think any vulva looks weird, but then again have you ever seen a penis and scrotum? lol. It’s all normal though. 

Anyone who sees your vulva, and does’t appreciate the beauty and magic of it should never be allowed to see it again. It says nothing about you - it’s all about them being a bad person. And anyone that stupid and insensitive wouldn’t deserve a second chance.

And my best advice, which I will tell any teenage girl, is to only get sexual with other people when you’re ready for it, don’t let yourself be pressured, there’s no rush, and it’s always better to have sex with someone you really know well. That way you know they aren’t after just a quick and dirty fuck. They’ll be doing it because they care about you. All the questions like “will he laugh at me?”, or “will he tell his friends what I look like?”, or “what will he think of my labia?” will all fade away. Why? Because he is being intimate with you, as a person, and not just a two-legged vagina. If you think about having sex with a guy, and can’t confidently know what his answer to those questions will be (FYI the right answers are “Hell NO!”, “Never!”, and “He’ll think they are beautiful and amazing!!!”) then perhaps having sex with him isn’t such a good idea. That’s all about respecting yourself - something you should always do.

I hope my long-winded rant has been helpful :)

Hi Emma! So it's been a while since I've stopped by this page... A year or so. When I started college and before I even met my boyfriend I was afraid to be romantic with guys because they would run off after seeing me "down there.". I wanted to get my lips surgically “fixed” before I stumbled onto your site. Eventually I trusted my boyfriend and let him play with me down there. I tried to not make a big deal of them and he didn't either. He loves them and so do I. Thanks for this site.
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

Hi, that’s great news! I probably shouldn’t say I told you so, but…. :)

Thanks for coming back to tell me, and everyone else, that there’s nothing to be worried about, and nothing to be “fixed”.

Hug your loved ones. Ask if they’re okay. Find them help if they need it. Smiles don’t = “I’m okay”. Don’t expect them to go it alone.

RIP Robin.  Thanks for all the laughs.

Emma here. People often say they are insecure about having asymmetrical labia, and ask me whether having one labium minora longer than the other is normal.

Well this is a photo of my vulva. As you can see my labia are not the same size, shape, thickness or texture. They aren’t the longest ones I’ve seen, but they aren’t the smallest either. The longer one protrudes from between my labia majora pretty much all the time. They aren’t pink either (the colour and white balance in this photo isn’t right, and my labia are a little bit pinker than this in reality, but you get the idea.) I love them!

I also have an extra flap of skin joining my left labium to my clit hood. I don’t know why it’s there, and don’t really care. I know it feels nice.

See the little bumps on my skin on either side of my clit hood, and between my labia majora and minora? Well they are Montgomery glands. They are normal, sebaceous (oily) glands that most people have. There’s nothing to worry about with them. Most people have them.

Many people have seen my vulva. And do you know how many have ever said anything bad about it? NONE. And can you guess what’s abnormal about my vulva? Let me give you a hint. NOTHING

So, how does all of this make you feel about yours?

@ the last anon: I had the same worry when I started doing sexual things. I was so afraid my boyfriend wouldn't like my lips or think they were strange, etc It sounds cliché but all vaginas are beautiful. And honestly, I am 99% sure your boyfriend wont think your labia are whatever you worry he'll think. And if you don't feel ready then don't do it. It is completely and utterly up to you. There is no time line for sexual exploration so don't rush yourself, if you don't feel ready that's okay!

For anyone with a vagina that's insecure about their labia: I promise you, your partner (or anyone who will come in contact with it) will not care what it looks like. Mine is a brown/gray color, long, and somewhat bumpy towards the bottom and my boyfriend has absolutely never said anything negative. I promise you, you are perfect and your body is beautiful how it is. <3

My boyfriend really wants to go down on me and I am totally down for it except I am so insecure about my down there that I can't even bring myself to let him finger me. I'm a virgin and I've never let anyone touch me down there. The thought of him going down on me absolutely TERRIFIES me, to the point I start crying. I'm so insecure about my large lips, I just don't know what to do

Spend some time on my site to familiarise yourself with the range of natural vulvar appearances, including large labia. You’ll hopefully soon start to realise that there isn’t a problem. You’re normal. You have nothing to worry about.

Ask yourself why you feel that having larger labia is something to be insecure about. Why be insecure? There are hundreds of millions of people with vulvas around the world just like yours. It’s not like you’re the only one. It makes as much sense to be insecure about having blue eyes, or wearing size 8 shoes. Having larger labia is just another normal anatomical variation.

And frankly if you’re really that worried about what your boyfriend thinks, if you feel he could reject you because of your normal anatomy, perhaps you really don’t know him well enough to be that intimate with him in the first place.

i don't know if it's wrong that i'm 16 and here, but i'm very, to say the least, unhappy with my genitals. i have long labia. they start off as pink and fade into a weird purplish color, and i'm not confident about them. i'm also a larger girl, (about 5'4" weighing 185) and i feel like no one will like me down there, because it's chubby and long and... it just makes me feel gross. i haven't liked my vulva since puberty. and i don't think anyone else will like them. and it makes me really sad.
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

No, I’m really glad that you’re here, because there’s not enough information about normal genital anatomy available for teenagers. I hope my site helps!

What you’re describing is totally normal. Around a third of Caucasian people who have a vulva have labia minora that aren’t pink. They can be shades of brown, black, purple, grey and blue, as well as being in shades of pink or red. Pretty much all labia minora start off pink on the inside, where they join the vestibule (the space between the labia, where the vaginal opening and urethral opening is). It’s very common for them to then be darker as you move from the inside to the outer edge. And the edge is very commonly found to be quite dark. Stop worrying, you’re totally normal.

And as far as having longer labia minora goes, if you’ve spent any time at all on this site then you’ll know what I think about that, i.e. it’s beautiful, commonplace, sexy, attractive, erotic, desirable and above all normal.

Labia majora will tend to vary in size with changes in body weight, but there’s nothing wrong with having larger, or smaller labia majora. Differences in size, shape, colour - it’s all normal. There is no better or worse. Just different.

Hi emma, ive seen more questions about fordyce spots recently. i have a ton. alllll over, even in my labia minora and they make me worried about if they will ever go away. while i realize they are normal and not harmful i dont see a whole lot of other people on here with them. just how common are they? i look like i have chicken skin everywhere!
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

Fordyce spots are very common. The majority of people have them. You’re right, they are normal, and not harmful at all. There’s no need to be worried about them. Honestly they probably won’t go away - and they don’t need to. They aren’t unattractive. They just “are”. And yes, it’s very common to have them on your labia minora. I have them. I have them inside the lips of my mouth too, as well as my genitals.

People of all genders have them, and it’s incredibly common to have them on penises and scrotums too, so it’s not like it’s going to be surprise to anyone who sees your vulva, regardless of their gender. They are most likely going to have them too.

Chicken skin? Nooo, you look like you have human skin - that’s how it looks!

Emma! This is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. Thank you for giving me the confidence to feel proud of my body and ENTIRELY NORMAL. For years I thought I was an outlier and I can relate to seeing those perfectly labias drawn to be labelled in sex ed class. Now I know for a fact that this is completely + utterly normal and you are an amazing woman! I even looked at them in the mirror! Thank you for giving women the empowerment - You are in a class of your own. Lots of love, Laura xx

Hello, I would be interested in taking part in your research, but I have polycystic ovaries syndrome and almost never have a standard cycle that includes ovulation. Is that a problem?
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

Ideally I’ll be mapping out what happens with a regular cycle, though “normal” is relative and cycles can vary greatly from person to person. But I’m not saying no. Please send me an email and we can talk more about it. largelabiaproject@gmail.com

This blog is really nice because it helps my self confidence with myself Seeing most porn having small labias makes me feel so awful about myself but this blog is making me feel so much better and normal. ♡
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

I’m so glad that my blog is helping boost your self-esteem and confidence.

I am really intrigued though when you say most porn has people with small labia. Can you please write back and tell me exactly what porn you look at? With specific URLs or website/publication names? I see large labia in porn all the time, and I’m genuinely puzzled when people say things like that. Can you please write to largelabiaproject@gmail.com or send me another “ask”? Thanks.

If you have breasts then I need you to take my survey into their size, appearance and your feelings about them. If you have already taken the survey, then thank you! If not, why not? All it takes is 25 minutes of your time (and a small ruler).

https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SM3JN2G

The results will be posted soon on my www.ourbreasts.org

Please reblog this, tell your friends, partners, colleagues and family, and share on social media. I need as many people to complete the survey to have the best possible and most relevant statistical results.

But hurry, it must end TODAY.

Email Submission: Yesterday my boyfriend and I were talking, and he said that my labia are like this because I am a fat woman. I have nothing against being chubby but felt like crap because for years I suffered from low self esteem, because I gained 10kg and have felt bad ever since. I am Brazilian and I found your blog, it helped my heart a little.


Hi, thanks for writing. Rest assured that your vulva is perfectly normal.

You can tell your boyfriend that the size or appearance of your labia minora has absolutely nothing to do with your weight. There are very few fat cells in the labia minora, and they do not change size if you put on weight, or lose it. The labia majora will be more likely to change size with weight fluctuations as they do have fat cells.

It’s a shame to hear that your boyfriend so insensitive that he would say that to you. It shows that he’s not only ignorant about normal anatomy, but he’s also not a particularly nice person.
