Dear Labi Amore:
For sometime I have been an aspiring pin-up model, and one area of concern for me has been my inner lips. The pin-up models that I idolized, such as Dita Von Teese, had nearly no inner lips. In my childhood (according to baby photos, and the word of my Mother) nor did I. I had always been embarrassed and upset about the fact that I had long inner lips. I felt like I had been cheated out of a 'normal' looking vulva. I had even made up my mind that I was going to have surgery on them to decrease their size. One day I stumbled across this site. I read, watched, and became enthralled. I had thought that few women had long inner lips, not to mention if they did, that they would be very embarrassed. I was, for lack of a better word, shocked. Could someone look upon my curse as a blessing? Indeed it was true, and after a few days, I gave up on the idea of surgery. Now, I've found a new level of confidence, and it's wondrous. It's comforting to know that my aforementioned curse is considered picturesque. Thank-you so much for creating this beautifully inspiring site.
Dita Von Teese is a beautiful fetish model and she has indeed very small inner lips. Her sultry looks, long legs, sexy curves and near-perfect boobs were no doubt essential ingredients for her success as a nude super model, but what made her stand out was her natural talent for posing. I don't know if she would have been as successful if she'd had long labia. If it would have made her self-conscious then that would definitely have hurt her career.
The main thing about posing is to have confidence in your body. If you feel uncomfortable it will always shine through in the photographs. But you've overcome your embarrassment about your genitals and learned that your wondrous vulva can be an edge in your career. As long as you can pose with natural grace and elegance, success is within your reach!
