The labia minora may be barely noticeable on some women, scalloped or wavy, and everything in between. For some women, the labia minora are more pronounced than the labia majora and extend beyond them. In rare cases, long labia can interfere with the enjoyment of sex, or the ability to comfortably wear certain types of clothing or engage comfortably in exercise.
As with most parts of a woman’s body, asymmetry is more common than both sides of the anatomy looking the same. Most women find that one breast is larger than the other or one leg slightly longer than the other. Each side of the labia minora, as a rule, looks a little different. It’s important for women and their partners to embrace realistic ideals about women’s bodies. We’re all different, from head to toe, and acceptance is always a greater aphrodisiac than perfection.
