Women’s Health Victoria developed the Labia Library to bust a few common myths about what labia really look like. After doing some research into what was motivating increasing numbers of women to seek female genital cosmetic surgery, we identified that many women and girls weren’t aware of how diverse women’s genitals can be.
There is a photo gallery that displays unaltered photos of women’s genitalia showing just how unique everyone is. The resource also supports positive body image for women and provides information, facts and referral to services in Victoria.
Since 2013, the Labia Library has been viewed by nearly 6 million people all over the world!
‘Thank you!! I wanted to cry because I am so relieved. I felt like I had no clue if I looked normal and was worried and this helped put things into perspective for me and gave me more appreciation for my body. I am very glad to have found this.’
'I’m 66 years old and this is the first time I had this information. Always thought my bits didn’t look normal and never had the courage to ask. Now I know they are just fine.’
‘A great resource especially for young women. I am a GP and see a lot of young women and this will be a great resource for those women who are concerned about the appearance of their genitals.'
‘Thank you for taking my worst insecurity and making me feel normal.'
