Ladies, did you ever come across the terms outie or innie vagina? If not, we’re here with just about all the information we have for you about outie and innie vaginas.

We all know what a vagina is. But more professionally speaking, it may be described as the elastic, muscular canal with a soft and flexible lining that provides lubrication as well as sensation. The Vulva and labia form the entrance of the it, and the cervix of the uterus protrudes into the vagina, forming an interior end.

Every female has either of both – outie or an innie vagina. Now, how do you identify it?

It is just like identifying with belly buttons you used to do when you were a kid. Fun times, right? Only this time, you have to identify whether your vagina is outie or innie.

Before we dive into it, there are some terms you should be familiar with. Those are labia majora and labia minora. Labia majora is basically the outer folds of your vulva that enclose and protect the genital organs, whereas a labia minora lies just inside the labia majora and surround the openings of vagina and urethra.

About time we come to the main point here now. 

How do you identify if you have an outie or an innie vagina?

An outie vagina is when your labia minora protrude through your labia majora. 

An innie vagina is when your labia majora is larger than your labia minora.

But then, what about it? If you have a question in your mind as to how are you different, having which type is desirable and which one is healthy?

How are they different from each other?

The answer is either of them is one and the same. There is absolutely no difference between an outie or an innie. You can feel pride and comfort in having either of these types of vagina. Having these two types of vaginas came to light only recently, when people started waxing off their pubic hair and started noticing the way their vulva looked. Before this, people did not know and hence did not care how their genital was in appearance. 

Some women complain of having too large labia length because of the sports they are into; as it can get really uncomfortable. Other women too, who just feel like they want their vagina to appear a certain way, go for a surgery called labiaplasty. Labiaplasty is a medical procedure that involves operating and cutting off the labia minora. These procedures are completely up to your wish and will if you want to. Either way, your vaginas are perfectly healthy and normal as any other person. 

However, the number of women going for labiaplasty has increased in recent years. Many women do it for comfort reasons and a large number of women get into it for cosmetic reasons purely. In a world that’s fast-growing and cosmetic surgery is almost a trend, who would have thought people would be open to getting surgeons near their genitals? Well, that’s about the year 2020 fellas. It’s crazy, but it’s not wrong. Women are free, independent and have absolutely every right to do what they want with themselves.

But if you are someone who is not sure about getting a labiaplasty and feel insecure about the shape of your vagina, there is absolutely nothing you need to worry about. You should be proud and every part of you is you, adds to your beauty. Don’t let anyone make you feel bad about your body. Because that’s who you are, what you are. 

Be proud of having whatever type of vagina you have and don’t hesitate to do anything. Because there is absolutely no reason why you should feel embarrassed about yourself when you love your body and love what you are. If you love yourself enough, no one way anyone can ever make you feel less beautiful. Always be around people who appreciate you, be intimate with someone who doesn’t care about the way your vulva looks, and if by chance you meet someone who does care, show them out the door. Because no one should be allowed to bring you down.

This is about it for the vagina, surgeries related to it, and why you should not care how it looks.
