The labia are the two outer and two inner lips of the female genitals these lips vary in size depending on the person. The labia surround and protect the clitoris, vagina and urethra.
There is no such thing as normal-sized labia. In fact, there is a huge variety in the shape and appearance of the labia among women. In some women, the labia minora (smaller, inner labia) are completely covered and concealed by the labia majora, while other women have pronounced labia minora that protrude from the labia majora. Unfortunately, there is currently a worrying trend in the media of photo-shopping the labia on models to make them appear smaller.
This has led to an increase in labiaplasty surgery, in which the labia are reshaped, often for cosmetic reasons. To combat this, many feminists are campaigning to make women aware that labia come in all shapes and sizes. occasionally, the labia can become distended after childbirth, interfering with a woman's day-to-day activities. In this case, she should consult her doctor.
