V U L V A
For all your vulva educational needs.
This is a Vulva is a sex education and vulva acceptance campaign to stem the rise in labiaplasty.
It's currently run by one woman, Jo (hello).
I'm here to teach people what the vulva is (not a vagina) and celebrate the diversity in genitalia.
Studies show that when people learn about vulva diversity and see photos and images of vulvas that look like their own, they start to accept their own genitals and feel happier. And who doesn't want a happy vulva?
Here's a few stats for you from the Gynodiversity project, that looked at over 300 vulvas and will help you to see that there is more than just that one type of white, hairless vulva with barely-there labia that is so often seen in mainstream, free porn and medical text books.
73% of vulvas have inner labia that protrude further than the outer labia. That means you can see the inner labia peeking out.
48% of labia are not symmetrical, meaning they look different on each side.
93% of inner labia are textured. So no, you don't need those vulva smoothing masks because vulvas are gloriously textured.
Worried your vulva isn't normal? Take a look at this big gallery of photos of diverse vulvas.
Discharge - the final taboo? We all get it but not many of us know what is healthy. Take a look at all these photos of regular discharge.
