Sex Advice

Dear Dr. Locker: My boyfriend told me that I have "long lips," and he wasn't talking about the lips on my face. What is the normal length of inner labia?

Answer from Dr. Locker

There is not one length that is "normal." In fact, there is a great deal of variation in the length and thickness of inner labia, or lips, of the vagina. The size of labia does not affect sexual pleasure. Some women with long labia may feel the need to use their fingers to push the labia out of the way of their vaginal opening immediately prior to penile penetration. This is normal and usually not a problem. Love what you have long, short, or in between -- and ignore your boyfriend's comments, since he shouldn't be comparing your body to anyone else's body, anyway.
