I recently received a submission from a female visitor to the Labia Project containing sexually suggestive photographs of her. These are completely inappropriate for publication on the Labia Project. I decided to put together these submission guidelines to provide clarity on what is acceptable and unacceptable when it comes to submissions:
- Many submissions that I receive contain pictures of genital nudity. This is great as it is an important part of the Labia Project – posts of those submissions serve to showcase the diversity in labia types, and these posts help many women to realize that they are normal.
- While I do publish images of genital nudity, I will never publish images of sexual acts or other sexually suggestive images, so please don’t bother sending pictures of that nature. This is not a porn site. It is a supportive community aimed at educating women about what is “normal”, and promoting body pride and self-acceptance.
- All picture submissions containing nudity must mention the submitter’s age. I do not accept or publish any nude pictures of anyone under the age of 18.
- I generally only publish submissions from female visitors – this website is a supportive community specifically for women, and male views are generally not relevant or appropriate for publication. In some cases, I do make exceptions to this rule, but exceptions of that nature are rare.
- If you are submitting pictures, it is ideal for you to include a message which explains your personal journey when it comes to your labia, and how you feel about your labia. Similarly, if you are submitting a story, it is ideal for you to include pictures, as these will give me a better idea of what you are referring to when you refer to things that make you insecure, or things that you like or don’t like about your body.
- I have a strict policy of never publishing the names or any other identifying information of anyone who makes a submission. There is no need to specifically request anonymity in your submission. All submissions are published anonymously (although you are welcome to specifically request this if will make you feel more comfortable).
- If you are making a submission of pictures / a story which you do not want published, say so in your post. I will never publish a submission which you say you don’t want published.
