The Labia Minora trend on TikTok is piqued

The “small labia” is defined as a pair of small skin folds that begin at the clitoris and extend downward, according to online definitions from the National Library of Medicine.

Sharing her take on the small labia trend, a TikTok user named @jessica_ann_pin began her viral video with the following statement:

“I’ve noticed a trend where a lot of women show off their labia minora in a see-through dress.”

  • The clip has since racked up over 3 million views, more than 47,000 likes and a comments section filled with curiosity, confusion and support.

    Many confused users have yet to see the labia minora videos on their TikTok For You page and seemed surprised to hear it was reportedly a trend on the platform.

    Another YouTuber named @shesmytranquility1 recently stitched together Jessica Pin’s original video in response to the labia minora trend and jokingly advised her followers to tag her in the clips:

    “Who does that? What page of TikTok is this on? Where can I find it?”

    TikTok videos that will blow your mind

    TikTok comments suggest that Jessica Pin was referring to YouTubers as a TikToker named @brunette.dr who uploads videos while wearing a see-through dress, meaning the shape of the labia minora is said to be showing.

    The content surprised many viewers who weren’t expecting the revealing videos to be shared on social media, and many seem to have a double take on the clips.

    Educational content was triggered by the social media trend

    In addition to the surprising reactions to the labia trend, educational content is also circulating on social media.

    Jessica Pin is one US Attorney aiming for comprehensive and fair coverage of clitoral anatomy in obstetrics and gynecology textbooks.

    Sharing her take on the labia trend with her TikTok followers, the creator pointed out that she only ever sees “positive comments from men” who reacted to the videos, before suggesting the following:

    “I think the whole idea that the labia minora shouldn’t be protruding is a bogus beauty standard promoted by female genital surgeons for profit.”

    The lawyer continues to build on her opinion:

    “I also think it stems from the cultural repression of female sexuality,” and thus “protruding labia minora and protruding clitoris have historically been considered taboo and it was expected that female external genitalia must be invisible.”

    Another user @gal_talk_ shared his insight related to the labia minora, implying that women were “gas lit” and thought they “should all look like a barbie”.

    Along with the educational content following the trend, some comedic commentary also appeared on different platforms.

    One Twitter user pointed out that a TikTok comment by @gretch merely responded to the labia minora videos, jokingly stating that the body part is referred to by his “government name”:

    The “Labia Minora” post trend on TikTok sparked educational, insightful women’s empowerment content that first appeared on HITC.
