Thanks to a viral TikTok, “innie” and “outie” vulvas now fascinate us all. Now, women around the world can’t stop talking about which types of vulvas they have.
The now-viral video, in which TikTok user @gabygabss discusses her “outie” labia racked up over 7 million views. And after a ton of inquiries from curious TikTok users, Gaby made another video to explain the difference between “innie” and “outie” reproductive parts because she felt like it was important to highlight them.
However, there’s still some confusion about what exactly the viral TikToker is talking about, so I’m here to break it down further.
Here’s a brief lesson on your reproductive anatomy:
The vulva is made up of the labia minora (inner lips) and the labia majora (outer lips/skin). You have an“outie” vulva if your labia minora protrudes further than your labia majora. In contrast, you have an “innie” vulva when yourlabia majora (skin) protrudes further than your labia minora .
In other words, someone who has puffier lips that truly hide the clit when they stand up has an “innie” vulva. Someone whose lips don’t fully cover the clitoris has an “outie” vulva.
But the wild thing about this phenomenon? Most people consider “outie” vulvas to be less attractive – even though more women are “outies” than “innies.” The good news is that neither vulva type gives you more pleasure during sex. So don’t worry – you’ll still feel absolutely everything!
Of course, this doesn’t stop women from feeling insecure about how they look “down there.” In recent years, many women expressed disappointment in the aesthetics of their lady parts. Many women who are insecure about their vulvas opt for labiaplasties, but there’s no need to get one after learning which type of vulva you have.
The important thing to remember is that all vulvas are fantastic. No matter whether you’re an “innie” or an “outie.” Without your vulva, you wouldn’t feel as much pleasure during sex, so your vulva literally keeps your whole body happy. Your vulva deserves your appreciation! No matter what any guy has to say about the way your vulva looks, embrace your lady parts! Innie or outie, your vulva is still amazing.
