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.

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.

Email Submission: Hi Emma, I submitted photos of my breasts earlier and I wanted to add my vulva to your blog as well. I have battled with an eating disorder for years and am slowly coming to terms with my body, my emotions and am much better in recent times. You and your blogs have helped me so much in coming to terms with myself. I cannot thank you enough.

My labia aren’t large at all, but I have still struggled to like how I look. It’s terrifying and my heart is pounding but I wanted to share and let this by my ‘fuck yeah vaginas!’ moment! Everyone who has sent in photos for your blog is so beautiful.

I also struggle to orgasm but I know now from reading your posts and replies that others are like me too. I will just have to practice more ha ha.

Thank you Emma. You are an inspiration and I love what you do.

This sketch is inspired by some labia(and their owner, of course) that I really admire and respect, and that is the woman of BaretoBush, her project is almost as inspirational to me as yours has been, and I appreciate all of the people with labias who are brave enough to show them off and be proud of them.  Now, this is a very rough sketch, done quickly in pen, but I think it really captures the beauty of this wonderful woman and her lovely labia.

Anonymous Submission: Hey Emma, I’ve become acquainted with my vagina in the past year for the first time. I have been sexual from a young age and masturbation has been part of my life as long as I can remember yet I never really paid any visual attention to my vagina. I grew up in a religious family so certain feelings of shame tormented me, as well as the fact that I was sexually abused throughout my childhood and later in my teenhood as well which damaged me greatly. 

I’m twenty years old now and I’ve come to a place where I’m learning to love my body and not only accept but embrace it because I know that no matter how many people have hurt me I am allowed to love myself and I know the blame was never mine. Part of this recovery has been taking photographs of myself and seeing how beautiful my body is and finding the beauty in myself like I find it in the world around me. It has been such a wonderful journey.

Another part of my recovery was that I had a sexual awakening a little over a year ago when I met my current and first partner. There was for the first time in my life a person who didn’t want to hurt me but wanted to love me, all of me, not just my body. While becoming in touch with my sexuality (on my own and with my partner) has helped a lot it hasn’t been without its problems. 

I started to feel insecure about my body, especially my vagina. I still have a love/hate relationship with it. I grow a lot of pubic hair (although I have trimmed half of it in this photo), my skin is clearly darker near my genitals and my vagina itself I’ve always found off putting. My labia majora are wrinkly and dark, my labia minora are asymmetrical and long and I’ve always hated that. In short, my vagina is not white and smooth and small like so many vaginas seem to be in porn and photos. Of course, since delving deeper into tumblr (and this blog especially) I’ve come to notice that there truly is diversity in vaginas and they all look beautiful in their own ways. Realising this has helped me be more accepting of my own vagina. For a long time I thought I was abnormal and no person has ever complimented me on my vagina, not that my confidence relies on that anymore. The only comments I’ve ever had is that “Wow, you have a lot of hair” and said guy refusing to get near my vagina, and my current partner’s “It looks fine to me.” when I opened up to him about my insecurity. Since, I’ve come to terms with my vagina by myself and I’m slowly starting to accept it. 

Yet I feel somewhat sad that all my partner has to say about my vagina is that “it’s fine” and lately we’ve had issues in our relationship, especially regarding sex. He hasn’t gone down on me in a long time (or touched me apart from some kissing and having intercourse) and when I opened up to it bothering me it escalated into an argument which brought our relationship nearly to an end. In short, I feel that my partner desires me less and he doesn’t appreciate my body and my sexuality like he used to. I’ve have felt ashamed of having a higher sex drive and being interested in sex more than him. But now I’m starting to understand that I have nothing be ashamed of. Nothing he says makes a difference for me because it is actions that speak louder. Of course, we don’t have a chance to see if it can get better because we live in different countries and are currently having a break because of other issues.
So all of this has brought me to a place where I’m caught between hating and loving myself again. I don’t want to end up our relationship yet I feel like I deserve someone better and someone who I can communicate with. I don’t know what has changed but something has. I don’t know if it’s possible but I hope we can talk things out and work on making us better. I’ve had help from my therapist on this so at least I know I’m not alone on this.

Yet despite everything I’m going to love myself and embrace my body. I’m proud of myself for choosing to love myself and for getting so far in my recovery. I wanted to submit because I refuse to hate myself just because I feel unwanted and unappreciated by another person. Showing my vagina and sharing my thoughts is incredibly personal so I’m a bit nervous about it and yet I want to do share my story.

Email Submission: Hey Emma, previously I asked "I have a labia minora that is longer than the other and it makes me self conscious. When I stand in front of the mirror my minor labia stick out of my major labia and look weird. They’re like a brown pink colour? They even put holes in my underwear :("

Thanks for your reply. It really helped me to understand. I’ve been going through your blog daily. It makes me a lot more comfortable. Why do all the women in porn look like they have nice pretty vulva? Haha [They don’t!!!! Porn labia are really diverse looking! I’ve proven that over and over again. What sort of narrowly focused porn do you watch? When will you girls start to listen? - Emma]

When I say they put holes in my underwear I mean that where my labia minora stick out of my majora they like rub or something and I find holes within weeks of getting new underwear. It causes a bit of friction burn on my minora as well and is uncomfortable. I recently threw all my holey undies out so I can’t show you but I attached pictures of my vulva. Maybe that will help.

I’m 18 and I’m happy for you to put them on you blog to help other women, like you have done with me. :)

Email Submission: Hi I recently found your website and really love what your doing, it’s important that women accept there body’s because all women are beautiful and all it takes is one strong courageous women to start the movement for all women. I wanted to send and share my vagina/labia.

I’m 24 years old and had my first child 10 months ago and before I got pregnant I was absolutely in Love with myself down there, I thought it was the prettiest pair of butterfly wings. Don’t get me wrong I still love myself and my husband loves it more than ever but it looked different before I had my son. It looked a tad smaller and more pink with red undertones and not as nearly as dark as it is now and my labia have become much more darker as well and you can see where it was pink but fades to almost a dark brown beige color.  I’m fine and not too upset about this change because I love myself and what an amazing body part the vagina is, but sometimes when I look at it I still miss how it looked before. Even my inner thighs have turned darker will it ever change back or is this the new me? Either way it’s still my beautiful butterfly wings.


Thanks for writing and for wanting to share your beautiful vulva. Having skin pigment changes is fairly common during and after pregnancy, so you have nothing to worry about. It may change, or it may stay the same. Either way you’re beautiful and normal. I hope you can grow to love your labia as they are, just as much as you used to.

Email Submission: Hi Emma, I have attached some pics of my large labia in panties and I will also contribute to your period pictures as soon as I start my period again. Although I checked last month to see what/if any changes occur and I didn’t notice any. 

As always, thank you for empowering women and all of our labias and breasts. You are incredible my love, absolutely incredible!

I recently started loving my cunt and feeling comfortable with others seeing it with all its imperfections. Growing up I hated my labia, it didn’t help that the first boy I had sex with looked at it disdainfully. But after finding this site and after having more mature partners, I realized that there’s no need to be ashamed. I shouldn’t feel pressured to look perfect for the other’s satisfaction. Although it’s not neat or asymmetrical, I find it satisfactory to me plus :)

Email Submission: Hi Emma, I wasn’t self-conscious of my labia until my last boyfriend said “What’s that?” …………..he also asked if it was because I’ve had tons and tons of partners (which is NOT true. I’ve been with 4 people in my 27 years). Anyway…slowly but surely I’m feeling more comfortable about them.

I actually made my own personal nsfw blog and posted hundreds of pics of my labia and body and ended up with over 5,000 followers. At that point I decided there are others who will like me as is. I’d like to think she looks like she has a wavy dress on haha.


Thank so much for sharing your perfect, normal and very beautiful vulva. I love that dress idea. I can image it dancing the Falmenco :)

It always saddens me when I hear how people who actually own vulvas are more willing to believe what an ignorant guy says about them - as if he’d have the first clue! All he did was display his stupidity, and reveal that he was not only stupid but also lacking in common decency.

It’s really encouraging to know that you aren’t so self-conscious about them these days, and as you have online experience with, you know for certain that other people find them to be truly beautiful. I really hope that you believe that too.

It is a fact that the appearance of your vulva ad labia has NOTHING to do with how many sexual partners you have had, NOTHING to do with how many times you have had sex, and NOTHING to do with masturbation, how young you were when you started doing it and how often you do it. NOTHING.

The appearance of your labia and vulva is determined by your genes and hormones. And yours couldn’t be more normal if you tried :)

Emma

Hi, Emma. First of all, thank you for all your support to these brave women. I am 17 years old, so I can not send a photo. Anyway, my labia minora are protruding and in a heart shape, although they are not very large. I am not very confortable with them… Of course I know they are normal, but I just feel a bit unconfident. I have a boyfriend and he is crazy to feel me under the panties… But I can only allow him to masturbate me with panties. I like him very much but I can not hide this fear. He watches a lot of porn, so… 


….so, if he watches a lot of porn then he would have seen vulvas of all kinds, of all shapes and sizes and colours. The models and actresses who work in porn have just as much vulva and labia diversity as anyone else in the wider community. The idea of labia in porn only being tiny little hidden pink things is an absolute myth.

Your labia sound totally normal, very beautiful, and you have nothing to worry about. In an ideal world we wouldn’t need affirmation from a boy, or anyone for that matter, and we would all have inner confidence. But in the real world sometimes our fears and anxieties are caught up in how we think other people will perceive us. Hearing someone else say “hey, you’re ok” is sometimes all we need to help change our self-image. Sometimes we need a little help. I’ll do that for you now.

You’re beautiful and ok :)

And your boyfriend will do that too if you want to let him. He’s felt them already through your panties, so he already has a good idea of how beautiful they are. If you know he cares about you, and he loves you for who you are, then you don’t have to worry about what he will think. 

Just know that whatever you do is entirely your decision. You don’t ever have to do anything sexual that you don’t want to, and never let yourself be pressured into it, no matter how “crazy” he wants to finger you. That’s your right.

Emma

I recently called for site visitors who were having their period to submit photos, showing tampon strings or even menses. This was following a particularly stupid complaint from an anon about the number of tampon strings seen in photos on this site (which is negligible btw). Since the majority of legitimate visitors to this site have their period every month, for decades and decades, it’s not something that should be stigmatised or hidden away, pretending that it doesn’t happen. There needs to be more education about menstruation. And frankly it’s an integral part of the amazing process of human reproduction. As awful as it usually is, it should be revered, celebrated and honoured for the majesty that the female reproduction system possesses. We should be proud to be able to bleed. I know I am!

This is a submission from a brave, proud and beautiful visitor who wanted to share her vulva and period. I’ll let her take over the discussion from here, including a photo she has submitted during her period (after “read more”). Thank you beautiful contributor!

Email Submission: Hi Emma, I’ve always admired the work you do with The Large Labia Project, Our Breasts, and Our Bodies, but I never thought I’d submit anything!

This was taken completely on a whim after browsing The LLP and seeing your call for period submissions. I was reminded how I’d really enjoyed the pictures Bare To Bush had taken of herself during her period and

Email Submission: Hi Emma! You asked for pictures during period and I decided to share my experience using a menstrual cup! Here are two photos of my beautiful, sexy, amazing vulva! In the first one you can see the cup inside of me; the second shows how little I bleed (it’s the third day of my period and I was using the cup for six hours). I had adopted the menstrual cup for more than one year and I think that every woman should give it a try! It’s very comfortable and it’s a chance know better our bodies and fluids.

Anonymous Submission: Hey Emma! I’ve been wanting to submit for forever — ever since I followed this blog, really, and I turned eighteen last week! I’d love to share my vulva with you. As my labia developed, I noticed my right one was far longer and in my opinion uglier than my left labia. I was very self conscious and had a hard time becoming comfortable with my body sexually. But boys didn’t mind at all! And I’ve embraced my asymmetrical labia and I show it with pride. Thank you so much for all you’ve been doing!  

Email Submission: Hello, here’s a photo of my labia. I use to be embarrassed about them, but my boyfriend loves, and now I’m much more comfortable with them.

Email Submission: Hello I am 19 and I submitted about a year ago and this is my vagina. I get embarrassed by the fact I have one large labia that isn’t smooth like the other one, but if a man has problems with my vagina than he doesn’t deserve it.

Hi! This is my lovely vulva. It is light pink, it has a pierced hood, my lips are not perfectly symmetrical, and my labia minora are “covered” by my puffy outer lips until I spread my legs, then my inner lips are visible. My vulva is beautiful, just like every single submission I have seen. I have not once seen an “ugly” or “abnormal” labia in my life. I work in a gynecologist’s office, so I see vulvas all day, and ALL of them are normal. 

I am a 30 year old woman who hated her labia from age 14 on until about a year ago. I believed my labia minora were too large and that I looked gross. I looked into labiaplasty - and thank God I didn’t go further.

My lips aren’t large at all - not that there’s anything wrong with that - and I’ve finally realized that my vulva is uniquely MINE. All vulvas are different in shape, color, size, etc, and ALL of them are beautiful. 

I also wanted to point out to some of these women, especially the younger girls, that MANY men don’t just like large labia, they PREFER it. Likewise, there are all kinds of pussies in pornography. Some of the most famous or very desirable actresses in pornography have protruding labia. 

Please ladies, we ALL have beautiful vulvas, they’re beautiful in every color, shape, and size and men TRULY do not give a shit what it looks like, they’re thrilled to be enjoying it at all! 

It took me 15 years to stop hating my vulva. Now? I love the way my labia, which are tucked behind my labia majora unless I am positioned in a certain way, look when they “come out” once I spread my legs. 

Thank you so much for what you do. I wish this site had been there when I was a teenager. :)
