It's no secret that many women feel ashamed of how the outside of their vulvas look, especially in a world where it's easy to believe yours is supposed to look like that of a porn star. Luckily, The Labia Library is here to show that like women's bodies in general, labias come in different shapes and sizes.

According to Refinery 29:

The Labia Library, a gallery-driven site that aims to "show that, just like any other part of the body, labia come in all shapes and sizes." In addition to extensive libraries of user-submitted images, the site offers some really great information and resources for anyone who needs reassurance that, yes, your labia are 1000% normal.


In addition to a gallery that shows front and below views of different labias, The Labia Library also provides facts and women's health advice. Ultimately, it aims to destigmatize our sexual organs, which is beneficial indeed.

I wish this had existed when I was a teenager. Once in high school I was hanging out with a group of my male friends, and someone had gotten their hands on a copy of Hustler or Penthouse or something. I remember my friends making over-the-top exclamations about how hot all the models were, and then they turned to the centerfold, whose labia looked a lot like mine. They all immediately started talking about how "gross" and "loose" she was. It made me feel so ashamed of how I look. I'm almost 30 now and I'd be lying if I said it didn't still stick with me.
