Are you insecure about how your vulva looks?

Aside from vaginal odor, many women stress about how their pussy looks. Most often wonder if it looks "normal." But what is a normal-looking pussy anyway? By who's standards determines if it's normal?

As long as you're not experiencing pain, discomfort, or abnormal odors, your lady parts are normal, sis.

Before I dive deeper, let's have a brief lesson on female genitalia. This is important because a lot of y'all think a woman's entire downtown region is called the vagina... and guess what? YOU ARE WRONG, 👏🏾AF!

  • The vagina is the internal canal through which menstrual blood passes (it's also where babies come out during vaginal delivery).
  • The vulva is the outer structure surrounding the vaginal opening and is what most people refer to when they wonder how their "vagina" looks.
  • The outer lips (or labia majora), inner lips (or labia minora), and mons pubis (the fatty tissue surrounding the pubic bone) all make up the vulva.


Vulvas and their components exist in a variety of shapes, colors, sizes, and scents.

If you struggle with thoughts of how your genitalia looks, it's time to get up close and personal with her. Grab a mirror and bust it open... like, seriously... take advantage of this opportunity to explore your unique anatomy and learn more about your body.

As you get more acquainted with your lady parts, keep in mind and understand, your pussy is YOURS, it's one of a kind, and it's powerful. So I want you to truly embrace the beauty of it. This will help to build sexual confidence so you can focus on what’s really important in the moment.
