Hello! I’m 21 years old and have had large and dark-ish labia all my life. My inner labia and clit have always been large and visible ever since I was born. I’ve never gotten a bad comment about it in real life, but on the internet I have seen people making fun of vaginas like mine. I am really insecure about it, especially because people think that long labia means lots of mileage. My vagina has looked like this since I was a virgin. I hope one day I can learn to love it and find partner who loves it too.
Thank you for being brave enough to share your story and picture.
Because the internet is so accessible, it is a place which has many bigots and idiots who are able to freely spew misinformation and hurtful comments. Their voices on the internet may appear to be loud and to represent thee views of people generally, but the reality is that this is not so. There are misinformed people out there, but their views do not represent the views of people generally.
One of the important aims of this blog is to correct the misinformation and to educate. This is not an easy task, as the Labia Project is one blog in a huge sea of information on the internet. Fortunately, it reaches many thousands of visitors every month, and I often receive submissions from people who are grateful for the positive impact that it has had on their lives.
I really hope that with time, you will be able to overcome your insecurities and find a loving partner who accepts you just as you are – perfectly normal, and positively beautiful <3
