Email Submission: I’m 28, have had 1 baby who is now 26 months, and am 6 months pregnant with the next.

During early puberty, my mom took me to her gynecologist to get my labia checked. She was afraid I had hurt myself and that’s why they looked they way they do. Before that I hadn’t thought anything about it.

He offered to “fix” them whenever I had a baby.

When I delivered my daughter, a doctor I had never met before was on call. I ended up with a lot of stitches, but I was terrified that he had somehow thought they had torn more and stitched them where it didn’t belong!

Since I am pregnant again, they have gotten larger and I have to wear panties to keep them from getting pinched in my pants when I walk. 

Like ears, nose etc. they are mine alone, and I accept them. I do think they’re ugly, but my husband loves them, so it’s ok. Accept yourselves, ladies, God made us exactly how we are with a purpose!

Email Submission: 19. Just remember to love yourself.

Anonymous Submission: Hi Emma! First of all thank you for all, what you’re doing there, you’re golden! xx

I think, that I’ve some infectious problems. I’m 20 and still a virgin. On my labia minora are many spots. It’s look like pimples, but I can’t squeeze them out. Also both sides of my labia minora are too thick i think :( is it something infectious or? And should I go to a doctor to show it? I’m too shy :(

Thank you xoxo


Don’t worry, it’s not a disease, not an STI, not infectious and they are totally normal. They are called Fordyce spots and almost everyone has them. They are oily glands (called sebaceous glands) like you have with hair follicles. They can appear white or creamy in colour, and are absolutely nothing to worry about.

Your labia look fine, you have no need to worry.

Email Submission: I’m 18 and I’ve been self conscious about my labia minora for about 4 years. My friends often referred to enlarged labia as “meat curtains” or “hanging ham” which made me feel very upset, and I felt like I had to join in with saying the derogatory term to mock enlarged labia minora. I went to my doctor when I was 15 and she referred me to a gynaecologist. The gynaecologist told me I could not have labiaplasty until I was 18 because I may still be “developing” in that area; she gave me nappy rash cream to sooth the rubbing against my panties and an anti-inflammatory gel to reduce any swelling/inflammation on my inner labia. I was disappointed that I could not get the labiaplasty, and I’m considering getting it now.

But 9 months ago I met my long distance boyfriend, we got very close and I told him how upset I was over my enlarged labia, he told me it didn’t matter to him because he loves me and they’ll be fun in the bedroom, but I’m still worried that once he actually sees my vagina he will not like it, and will avoid oral sex.

I really want to become more confident with my inner labia but I can’t help but feel they’re too wrinkly and saggy. I just want to be considered normal and not a “meat curtain”. It has helped me coming to your blog. Thank you!

please post my vagina. and btw i’m 23 years old.

Email Submission: “I’d always been extremely uncomfortable and self-conscious about my labia, until the day that I met my boyfriend. I always thought that they were too “big”, or “puffy”. I had considered having surgery to remove most of them. I started following this blog before I had met him, and I started to gain confidence with myself. Your blog helped me find the courage to put myself out there, and have sex with my boyfriend.

A funny thing happened. The first time we ever had sex, he said; “Oh my, I LOVE your pussy. All I want to do is kiss your lips, and taste you.” Every time we have sex now, he can’t help but compliment it in some way. My biggest insecurity has now turned into one of my biggest pleasures.

Ladies - your vagina isn’t ugly or wrong. You are you - and there’s someone out there who just can’t wait to get their hands on you. :) “

Oh how I love a success story! Hooray! :) Thanks for writing to share your personal growth experience and of course your fabulously wonderful and delightfully beautiful labia. Oh wow, is there any wonder why your boyfriend reacted the way he did? I’m sure there are millions of guys (and more than a few girls) out there who would be green with envy. Thank God you never had labiaplasty surgery!!! It’s so awesome to read how you realised that all of your fears were unwarranted and were able to then get on with enjoying a happy sex life and boosted self-esteem. What a great outcome!

our labia-positive message is exactly what other girls need to hear. I’m grateful that you took the brave and selfless step to contribute to this pussy-pride project. I know how confronting and nerve-racking it is to make yourself so publicly vulnerable, so you really need to be applauded for doing this today. You’re amazing. Thank you!

Email Submission: It is amazing what a little research can do for one’s confidence! I find myself wanting to display my pussy for all to see because it is big and beautiful!

Anonymous Submission: Hi there! I’m a 28, genderfluid person. All my life I always wondered why my labia looked the way they do. Even when I was little. I noticed they were big.
I used to seriously consider labiaplasty. Because they’d fall out of my underwear and get caught in tampon applicators. I don’t wear tampons anymore. And I wear underwear lower on my body to accommodate my lips. I wear my thongs lower in front and high in the back so that i don’t fall out of them. Thongs were not made with large labia in mind. (If you do this, go up one size. trust me, you will thank me later!)
I used a chapstick tube to show their size. When I’m aroused, my clit sticks out pretty far. I’ve never really looked at my labia when I wasn’t aroused, so seeing how frilly it is was a little bit of a surprise. My clit hood is really long. It always has been. 
I haven’t shaved in a couple of months. I have sensitive skin so I can’t shave as often as I like. But I don’t mind. I DO have to keep the hair shaved clean between the majora and minora because it can irritate and cause itching and rashes… Yup. Hair irritation can cause rashes. Its annoying as hell.
Anyways. For a long time, I was so self conscious of them. Sex was always difficult. And I always thought people would think less of me if they saw my lips were so long. I didn’t stretch them out but they are a good three or four inches long. I’m now almost 29, and I love them. I now have no shame about them. I love my lips. They are fun to tug on. And not even in a sexual way (well that too but that’s not the point). Its just skin to me. And I like the texture of them. It took me a long time to come to grips with how they looked. And I hope that when people find this blog they learn that all labia are different, and that they aren’t alone with having weird looking/long/short/small/big/etc… Labia look weird no matter what, y’all. And if someone can’t appreciate the fact that you even let them LOOK at your gorgeous flower, then they don’t need the privilege of touching it. :)

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!

Anonymous Submission:Hi Emma, I am 29 and here are my labia. I’m not sure if they would be exactly considered “large”, but they definitely get in the way sometimes, especially during sex. I have seen so many beautiful labia on your site, and I’m proud to say I’ve never really been self-conscious about this part of my body. Thankfully the men I’ve been with haven’t made any negative comments either. Your blog is a wonderful way for people to see that women’s vulvas come in all different shapes, sizes, and colors. Thank you!”

Thanks for the great work you’re doing with your blog. Here’s a photograph of my lovely lips, which I really enjoy. I’m 36 and only recently found out that I have big labia, although I’ve had a number of partners, male and female, no one mentioned it, and I never thought about comparing my lips to those of my lovers, though looking back, mine were bigger then all the women I’ve slept with. I fully realized my lips are big while searching something unrelated, and seeing a post by someone who was worried that they had big labia - I had no idea that women had such body issues. It made me consider the state of my labia, and I think my lips are quite big, but they have never given me any issues. I am very proud of what I have and if my parts get bigger with age and activity, I see that as a bonus - more to play with. I also think it’s fine to have pubic hair. I live in a hot country so feel my pussy can breathe more easily if my hair is short but I don’t think anyone should stress about the natural state of their parts and change them to fit into unnatural notions of how these parts should look, or hide their big lips from potential lovers. Celebrate your unique beauty! There is a gorgeous flower called Clitoria, given that name because of it’s resemblance to beautiful female genitals. I love my ‘clitoria’ and everything connected to it - all part of the joy I get from sex!

Hey Emma! I’m 19 years old and I just want to let you know that you changed the way I look at my vagina. This blog is amazing and I honestly think every single woman needs to check it out. I used to be so insecure about my asymmetrical labia. I wouldn’t let anyone see it.. Now I enjoy oral sex, and sending nudes to my boyfriend. What you’re doing is GREAT and you need to keep it up! #pussypride

Hi Emma, Having just posted in the breasts blog I decided to post in this blog as not only are my breasts unique so to are my labia. On the large size as I have always known but have never truly understood the extent of how many people have large labia. I have always embraced my labia as I find it is the reason my boyfriend can give me an orgasm with oral sex in under 1 minute on occasions! However I understand that for many it is difficult and I feel it is important for everyone with large labia to expose theirs to this sight in order to raise awareness so I hope this picture helps to do this
