A labia specialist has revealed eight totally normal ways a vagina can look — including having asymmetrical or enlarged inner lips. Dangly or tightly tucked, wrinkled or smooth, thick or thin — the labia or vaginal lips come in all different shapes and sizes. And like any of our beautiful body parts, the way the inner and outer labia vagina looks and feels is all part of our genetic makeup. The most common differences in the labia are the shape and size, however, the thickness and colour of them varies too. Some women are conscious of their vaginal lips being different lengths.
I Had Plastic Surgery On My Labia. Here’s Why I Did It And What Happened After. | HuffPost
The clitoris is pretty cool. Its the only organ in the human body made solely for pleasure, but despite it's incredible powers, it's unfortunately often overlooked. But, why? One French filmmaker is just as confused about it as we are, which is why she made a video to call attention to the VIP of human pleasure. The educational and adorable video reminds us not only what exactly the clitoris is, but also why we should be paying more attention to it. The answer? Because we can.
Just like every other part of our bodies, no two labia are the same. In fact, from woman to woman it's not uncommon for one side of the labia to look different, from color to size, from the other side. If you notice your labia look different from side to side, that is most likely normal.
My first memory of experiencing shame over my labia was in my 7th grade health class. My inner labia naturally protruded significantly outside my outer labia, and, at just 12 years old — thanks to that health class and hushed conversations between preteens — I was already being fed sexualized body ideals and realizing that I failed them because my own anatomy was considered fundamentally and physiologically wrong. I grew up in a Christian home with little resources for understanding my body, much less my sexuality. As I was already the heaviest girl in my friend group, I perceived my body to be primarily a source of shame that needed to be fixed.
