I was 12 years old when I noticed that my vulva was different from the model conveyed ordinarily. I was flipping through the dictionary, and found an illustration of the female human body. A few years later I was the only one of my friends who didn't want to wash together after a sludge battle. It was then that I realized that I was afraid of their judgment. I didn't tell anyone about it. When I was 16 years old, I regularly cried in my pillow, and I made the decision to give up my sexuality forever. I insulted myself of "monster" thinking to be alone in the world to have large vulvar lips. A few years later I did research online which gave me confidence to start my first love and be naked together with someone for the first time. It just relieved me of what I thought was a burden, but which wasn't in reality. Now that I am a woman, I feel stronger and more seductive than ever. Thanks to the reassuring men I knew. But also thanks to the recent democratization of the physical diversity of female bodies. We are all beautiful!!
