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 of 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.
As a young feminist woman with large labia, to me, the fact that labiaplasty even exists, and the fact that women opt for it, just shows me that in general, women are much weaker than men. Some men have black saggy balls that hang down to their knees but do you see them crying and rushing to the “doctor” to have parts of their balls cut off and reconstructed? No, because that’s apart of their manhood and makes them who they are, any man pressured to risk his sexual function to have his saggy balls surgically reconstructed would laugh in your face. But tell a woman to completely reconstruct her anatomy and risk sexual function cause men might not like a couple centimeters of nerve packed skin? No problem, we’ll all run to the surgeons and risk our lives, health, and sexual function to look like the pre-pubescent, baby vulvas riddling playboy. Men watch porn and see other men with no pubic hair and tidy balls, do you see men sitting around being depressed that their balls aren’t “tidy like the ones in porn,” or do you see a majority of men religiously shaving off all of their pubic hair to look like porn stars? No. If you go on a website like LLP, where there are personal submissisions from women all over the world, you’ll notice about 8/10 women have scarred, razor burned, prickly skin from religiously shaving. Why? Go on a website where men make personal submissions from all over the world and not a single one has ever even touched a razor to their pubic area. Why? Because most men aren’t emotionally affected by media how women are. To me, labiaplasty is the epitome of women not being equal to men, and not being able to be comfortable in our natural bodies because society says so. But then again, maybe its because women are being targeted and pressured to feel ashamed of their natural bodies, a great example is the Center for Young Women’s Health posting articles written for YOUNG WOMEN pressuring them to be ashamed of their bodies, “It is unclear what causes labial hypertrophy. For some unknown reason one or both of a young woman’s labia will grow larger than the average size. It is not caused from masturbation and it is not a sexually transmitted infection (STI). There is nothing that you have done to cause this to happen.” REALLY? This article brings tears to my eyes, it is not clear what causes labia to grow? PUBERTY CAUSES LABIA TO GROW, IT IS A NATURAL PART OF FEMALE PUBERTY. SERIOUSLY? Just like during male puberty the balls drop, during female puberty labia drop. Its really not some big mystery, and something tells me the Center for “Young Women’s Health” should know that. Then they go on in this article to reassure women that being confident in their natural bodies is okay (wow really?) but its also okay to loathe your natural body so much you surgically mutilate it, “However, it’s also perfectly normal not to be upset about your labia and to be accepting of your body. If having labial hypertrophy causes you to feel bad about yourself, you should talk to a parent or trusted adult and make an appointment with your health care provider to talk about treatment options.” Then, after pressuring young women over and over again in the article that they have a medical condition that they need surgery to fix, they explain that this surgery can cause painful sex (REALLY?) “Since the top of the labia is connected to the clitoris, be sure to ask if the clitoral hood (skin covering the clitoris) will be affected. Sometimes there can be scar tissue that may make future sexual activity painful.”
Can we please make a petition or something about this article? I definitely do not see an article ANYWHERE in the Center for Young Men’s Health urging young men to mutilate their genitals at a young age and risk having a disfigured, mutilated, painful genitalia to please others.
I recently called for site visitors who were having their period to submit photos, showing tampon strings or even menses (menstrual blood). 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 unpleasant as the process often 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. 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 and was curious to see what my vulva looked like. Well… I think it looks pretty cool!
I’ve never really had a problem with how my genitalia looks - in fact I quite like my vulva. I’ve always been a bit self-conscious of my pubic hair though, because it’s so coarse and curly (which is why I opt to trim and not shave - the discomfort during regrowth isn’t worth it), but sparsely distributed. That said, taking this picture made me feel a lot better about it. Thanks for providing me the opportunity to become a bit more comfortable with myself :)
