I just wanted to say that when I was a young teen and I was concerned about the size of my labia, I was unable to find anything online except cosmetic surgery ads and how "gross" I was on some bodybuilding forum. I think it's wonderful that young women will be able to search and find your site first and not have to be confronted with harmful misconceptions right off the bat.

Thank you. It really does make me feel like this is all worthwhile when I hear people say that :)

Looking at the various images of vulvas and the differences for each woman is strange to me. I'm almost scared of them because of how different my business is. All my stuff is completely hidden within my large labia majora. đŸ˜łđŸ˜±
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

You need to realise that this site is focusing on genital anatomy that features larger and often protruding labia minora. So typically if you’re looking here you’re not going to see many vulvas that look like yours.

There’s abslutely nothing wrong with, or uncommon about vulvas with smaller labia minora, or larger labia majora. Genitals are amazingly diverse in appearance, and you have just one of the billions of unique, normal and attractive vulvas in the world.

Hi Emma... So I think I've finally found the place to ask this question so here it goes I have like a mini pinky finger. About .5 inch long and the size around of a tooth pick resting towards the bottom of my vaginal opening and I'm really worried as to what this could be
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

Hi, thanks for writing. Ok I’m not a medical professional so this isn’t qualified advice, but, I’m guessing that it’s a skin tag (a harmless type of skin growth). Or more likely it’s just part of your vaginal corona (a.k.a. the hymen) where there may be lumpy, bumpy, ragged looking remnants after the corona has stretched and eroded (after sexual or other penetration, or life in general). These go by the catchy name of “carunculae myrtiformes”, or “hymenales” but are most commonly referred to as “hymenal tags”. Either way it’s nothing to worry about unless it’s causing you physical discomfort.

If you want to send me a photo of it to largelabiaproject@gmail.com I’ll be able to give you a better opinion.

I genuinely think there is something wrong with my vagina. Looking at all your pictures , urethral openings are just .. There.. and you can see them. But mine isn't. I genuinely can't see it and I think it's up inside my vagina somewhere. Is this normal?
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

That can happen, but chances are that yours is just being shy. It might sound gross, but one time when you need to pee, get yourself a mirror, jump in the shower or bathtub, and looking at your vulva (spread your labia open so you can see better) and watch where the pee comes from.

Hi,I'm 16 & I found your blog about 2 years ago. I was really self conscious about my large labia since the age of 11. At 14 it got so bad that I was set on never letting anyone even see my vagina. After regularly checking out your blog for a while after I found it I started to become comfortable with my body. I've let others explore the body I've learned to accept. Because of you not only do I love my large labia, but other things I was insecure about. You taught me self love. Thank you so much
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

Hi, thank you for writing. I always really appreciate hearing success stories like yours, and I’m so pleased that you’ve been able to grow. I have the biggest smile on my face, and I must be a bit emotional this morning because I’m a bit teary now too. Look what you did :)

It’s not just me spreading the message about body-positivity here. Every contributor, and everyone who asks for ways to feel better about themselves - they are the real force behind this site. And now you’re part of that too. Your story will help someone else realise that they can love themselves as well :)

Vulva Anatomy

The vulva are the external female genitals that surround the opening to the vagina; collectively these consist of the labia majora, the labia minora, clitoris, clitoral hood, vestibule of the vagina, vaginal corona (hymen) and the Bartholin’s and Skene’s glands. All of these organs are located in between the anus and below the mons pubis (aka Mons Veneris or pubic mound, the pad of fatty tissue usually covered in pubic hair on top of the pubic bone).

The labia majora are two thick folds of skin running from the mons pubis to the near anus. The outer sides of the labia are covered with pigmented skin, usually darker than the rest of the body’s skin. They also have oil-secreting glands, and after puberty, the outer sides are generally covered in pubic hair. The inner sides are smooth and hairless, with some sweat glands. The scent from these is sexually arousing.

Directly beneath the mons pubis and between the labia majora is the clitoris. The clitoris is a woman’s most sensitive erogenous zone and the primary source of female sexual pleasure. It contains spongy erectile tissue which is highly sexually sensitive. Only the tip or glans of the clitoris shows externally, but the organ itself is elongated and branched into two forks, the crura, which extend downward along the rim of the vaginal opening toward the perineum. Most of the clitoris is an internal organ, and it is much larger than most people think – a few inches long, on average. The clitoral glans or external tip of the clitoris is protected by the prepuce, or clitoral hood, a covering of tissue which generally extends into the labia minora. The clit hood contains nerve endings and is often highly sensitive to the touch. During sexual excitement, the clitoris may extend and the hood may retract to make the clitoral glans more accessible. On some women the clitoral glans is very small; other women may have a larger clitoris that the hood does not completely cover.  Clitoris sizes can vary greatly.

The labia minora, the two folds of skin between the labia majora, surround the vestibule of the vagina. They have no fat or hairs. The labia minora vary in size, and may be completely contained within the outer labia, or may be much longer and protrude and extend considerably past the outer edges of the labia majora. They also have a variety of shapes from gentle arcs, almost straight lines, to being described as the shape of “flower petals”, or “butterfly wings”. The skin can range from being wrinkled to smooth. The skin pigmentation can range in colour from pink tones, to brown tones, through to purples and black. The labia minora contain sebaceous and sweat glands, and are often moist.

The vestibule of the vagina (the area between her inner labia where her vaginal and urethral openings are) begins below the clitoris and contains the urethral meatus (pee hole), the vagina, and the ducts of the two Bartholin’s Glands and Skene’s Glands. The urethral opening is a small slit located closest to the clitoris; through this opening urine is passed. Below the urethral opening is the larger, vaginal opening. The Bartholin’s Glands are either side of the bottom of her vaginal hole, and the Skene’s Glands are either side of her urethral opening. The Bartholin’s Glands don’t produce much fluid at all, just one or two drops of mucous lubrication. The Skene’s Glands are a bit of a mystery, and not all women appear to have them. Some think they are where female ejaculation comes from, and they can produce lots of liquid. But strangely not all women have them, which could be why not all women ejaculate. 

The vaginal orifice, particularly in virgins, is often surrounded by membranous folds of skin known as the vaginal corona (also known as the hymen). The vaginal corona is often easily stretched, and after normal physical activity, such as sport, inserting tampons, penetrative masturbation, and sexual intercourse, the hymen will stretch or sometimes rupture. The opening of the vagina, and the vaginal corona, may appear smooth, lumpy or with skin fragments or tags.

Running along the sides of the vestibule are two elongated bodies of erectile tissue known as the bulb of the vestibule. Many mucous glands are also present in the vestibular region. Both the labia minora and labia majora tend to cover the vestibule.

I can't orgasm with my fingers :( I can only if I'm rubbing against something like my bed. Even though I've tried many times I never succeed I don't know what to do... Do I need more practice?
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

There is no right way or wrong way to achieve an orgasm. The great news is that you’re able to come. By all means keep practising, I mean it’s not the worst thing in the world to be doing haha. Just do it for the fun of it, rather than having orgasm as the objective. When you relax you’re more likely to be in the right mental and physical state to have an orgasm anyway. So don’t think about it and you never know, it may happen. Worst case is that you go back to the way you know works :)

I've noticed that lots of girls have their labias pink and mine is dark like almost black is this normal? Or do I need to bleach (what is that anyways)?
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

No no no no no never bleach! Lots of Caucasian people with vulvas have labia minora in shades of pink. But about one third of Caucasians have labia that are in darker shades on brown, black, purple, blue or grey - and every variation in between. The proportion is even higher for people with darker skin - the darker the general skin pigmentation the darker the labia minora. Most people, regardless of their skin colour, have darker labia minora than their surrounding skin. It’s also very common to have dark coloration along the outer edge of the labia minora. Don’t worry, you’re perfectly normal. And don’t ever think of bleaching. It’s dangerous and totally unnecessary. You’re perfect just the way you are.

Emma

I recently conducted a survey to see whether having or removing pubic hair had an impact on the pain and discomfort some people have with their labia minora, especially protruding labia minora.

While each person’s experience will be unique, based on their anatomy, skin sensitivity, and their wardrobe, the results show that if you shave or wax your labia majora you will be more likely to experience pain, chafing, irritation, pulling and discomfort with your labia minora.

If your labia hurt, my advice is don’t shave!

It's great what you are doing. I am still (after years of politico-sexual/gender awareness), not used to the heightened body image burden that girls & women have to bear, particularly the tragic commercial practice of labioplasty. Women you are beautiful all over!

"The only person who should care how your vagina looks, is you. Who cares? Why does this even exist?" Because women have unrealistic imagined problems with their bodies since the dawn of time. And sometimes it's nobody's fault. A girl can grow up in rural Siberia, never contact any media or judgmental persons, yet she can think "I should look like this or that". It's their nature.
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

Hi Emma, I would like to say thank you for the support that your blog has given me over the time. I try my best to spread your words through the internet, to help other women who have self-esteem issues, due to the patriarchy of men and the obviously misogynistic mass media. I can not take the pain of this stigma any longer. I have large labia and I am proud of it.

No such thing as vaginal orgasm? My friend has them all the time. No clit play what so ever. Maybe it's just the g spot? Oh and btw I personally don't feel even the slightest pleasurable sensation through penetration. It just feels like something inside of me. Is that weird?? Shouldn't I at least feel something?? But I can cum with my clit in minutes.
largelabiaproject largelabiaproject Said:

Yep, there’s no such thing. The orgasm comes from the clitoris (well really it’s the spine but it’s the clitoris that’s the focal point). Your friend would be experiencing it through stimulation of the internal parts of the clitoris. Here’s a diagram of the clitoris - the visible external part is the glans. As you can see it somewhat surrounds the vagina.

Not everyone feels the same things, and all bodies are built and wired a little differently. The vagina only has limited sensation around the entrance and just a little bit inside, and not everyone will feel their internal clitoral structures (a.k.a. the g-spot) in the same way. Very few people can experience orgasm through vaginal penetration, and generally when that happens it’s from stimulation of the outside, visible glans of the clitoris - through bumping / friction from pubic bones, legs, thighs etc. If you’re able to easily have orgasms from touching your clitoris then that’s fantastic and honestly you couldn’t ask for or expect more than that. It’s normal.
