Can you please write the truth about women with larger labia? My vagina didnt get stretched out from birthing children or sleeping around. It would be nice if guys knew that some women are simply built with larger lips.
Dear Loose Lips,
Not to get all poetic on you, but labia are like snowflakes or fingerprints no two are alike, and theyre all cool to look at. I suggest everyone ladies and men alike check out the Large Labia Project on Tumblr (careful, its not safe for work). This Tumblr blogs goal is to show the beauty of large, long, thick, fleshy vulva. The blog invites women to submit photos of their vulvas, along with stories and feelings about their labia, which are then posted for all to see. The Large Labia Project has been gaining momentum and has been talked about on Jezebel and Slate, garnering some criticism for its show-and-tell approach to bolstering womens self-esteem. Regardless of your stance on the approach, viewing other womens vaginas and reading about their insecurities can be a hugely normalizing experience. And, for the dudes who venture over to the Large Labia Project, take note: Not all vulvas look alike, nor should they.
Sadly, the cosmetic and medical industries are capitalizing on the homogenization of the female body by creating false standards of what is normal and desirable. Thats why women spend cash on everything from Brazilian waxes and anal bleaching to breast implants and vaginal rejuvenation. Do a search for large labia on Google, and youll be served ads for Labia Reduction and Labiaplasty a procedure to correct irregular labia. Ridiculous! Labia come in all shapes and sizes some lips are compact and tuck neatly into the labia majora, while others are voluminous and protrude gloriously outward. No cosmetic surgery needed.
