I would like to share my story about my vulva. I just recently at 41 years old came to love my vulva and labia. I hated the way it looked, I would always only have sex with the lights off because I was so ashamed of how it looked. I would see people on social media labia shaming - it made me angry to see this. One day I explored my whole entire vulva and labia and I started following a lot of pages about labia and realized my labia wasn’t the only one that looked the way it did. I embrace my vulva and labia now, it’s mine and it’s pretty. Some days I would just get a mirror and explore every crease and fold and tell myself “you’re body is beautiful who cares what people think”! I’m teaching my daughter the same things I learned at a late age in life, in hopes that she embraces her body and loves every inch of herself so that this next generation can fully understand the beauty of a woman’s body instead of shaming it.
