Welcome to

The Normal Healthy Labia Picture Gallery

Images to explain where the labia majora and labia minora are situated in a woman’s genital area – The Vulva

The slang term for these is often used by people describing labia, as ‘pussy lips’.

Labiaplasty (or surgical repair of the labia) is increasingly common, but is it the right thing to do – not always – and there are serious issues associated, not least the fact that it could be considered a form of FGM! (Female Genital Mutilation)

Labia Definition: Labia are fleshy lip-like sides of an organ or an area of tissue. There are the fleshy folds that surround the opening of the mouth (oral labia) and the visible, labia major and minora that surround the entrance to the vagina.

Women’s vulvas and labia vary enormously. There are vulvas with large, long, short, fat and thin labia – all are normal. All have a job to do.

Sadly, there are some women and girls who have had their labia removed during Female Genital Mutilation, for which there is no medical reason, whatsoever – but that’s another subject, entirely. See link below.


Labia are:

The oral labia– are the lips on the face / or entrance to the mouth.

The labia majora – the fatter, outer labia of the vulva

The labia minora – the thinner, inner and often longer and more protruding lips, within the inner vulva, close to the entrance to the vagina (vaginal orifice) and which surrounds the urethral opening – or opening to the urethra or urine passage – and up, to enclose the clitoris within the labia majora, too.

In the meantime, please pop across to the Vulva Gallery where you can see several pages of female genitalia pictures, which obviously show a selection of normal healthy labia majoras and labia minoras.

Part of the reason behind developing this section of the website was because, in a clinical situation, we found that many women were confused about their anatomy, and felt it was not normal, but were only able to compare themselves with porn stars, in porn films and porn magazines/porn websites. These women generally shave their vulva – but the hair is there for a reason, and is a woman’s first line of defence against bacteria that might like to head towards the vestibule and further, towards the vagina.
