Speaking for myself, and I am certain that my opinion is far from unique, I prefer a woman who is large much more than a slit.
I believe that large women are more attractive to the eye and I am quite surprised to read that there are women who believe they are "less" attractive because of their large labia and/or clitoris rather than MORE attractive as a result.
Pardon me for being so frank but the beauty of the female form is second to none and it comes in all sorts of wonderful shapes and sizes.
Be proud and confident ladies, the vast majority of men can admire your beauty without being intrusive or bothersome. We look because we appreciate your physical attractiveness, we are never unmindful of the real person within.
You don't know how much I agree with you. When i started to practice nudism I always took care of not exposing too much my genitalia until I thought how much absurd it was.
Now I like to be with my legs open wide not worrying about how much I show. Like men have penises, women have vaginas, and there's no reason to hide them.
I've been to clothing optional beaches and resorts with a partner who has more skin than average hanging from her vaginal lips. She says it might be from childbirth. Even so, she has never been shy to have it exposed in nudist settings. She has commented on having surgery to make it look more like it did before kids. It doesn't bother me though. It's a natural thing and doesn't make her any less beautiful in my eyes. Besides, when she's laying down you hardly notice. And when she's walking you really have to be staring to see it hanging a little lower than most. I have some photos of us on the beach but I think you get the idea. We're not all perfect and shapes of genitalia should not keep any of us from enjoying the sun and surf nude.
All that you say jenna6000 (and other open minded women) I perfectly agree.... Yes, I am a man, yes, men usually likes very much to see womens genitalia, but all this have nothing with the sentiment of freedom that I thing womens are trying when they exposing their pussy! Like you say, letting your pussy be touched by the sun, by the wind or anything else she likes, must to be an unique feeling and for this... everything are accepted (in my opinion). The beauty must not have any restriction!
Apparently, some countries view a naked female as quite legal, but not a naked male. This is usually due to the fact that a male displays sexual arousal more openly, in the way of an erection. The vagina does show arousal, but not in the same way the penis does. However, I personally feel that in whatever state of arousal or not, there is nothing wrong with exposing male or female genitalia at a nudist beach or resort. After all, we've all got what we've got, and it's part of nature.
I like to have the sun and the wind on my genitalia, when I am in my back yard I have no problem exposing myself. but the few time we have gone to a beach, I have felt very uncomfortable with others staring at me, so most of the time I keep my legs closed, and I make sure that my husband is next to me.
Remember the woman's genitalia is the last taboo and has been so hidden in our american culture along with sex that people are "starved" to see it like anything else that has been denied them so so long like sexual or any other freedom. The holy bible was not allowed to be read by common laypeople ,assuming they could read, for centuries and is now the best selling book in the world because of it i believe. Most men until marriage in recent times ever saw the females genitalia until they were married and then freaked out and were disgusted by it. Ignoring those who stare at someone they rarely see in real life and do not know how to deal with is the way to go. The more they get to realize that it isnt some great hidden treasure that only a few are allowed to see the fewer sex crimes and rampant promiscuity and diseases there will be.
MsTique write: Thanks for posting something that I, too have wondered about.
I am a little self-concious about the size of my labia and have often envied women on the beach who have small 'slits'. They are able to open their legs without all the stuff hanging out ! ! LOL
I can sit in my backyard and spread my legs as wide as I can. It is a WONDERFUL feeling. I just lack the courage to do so at the beach.
I am guilty though of being aroused by looking at women who are spread wide.
"Acceptable" exposure is what I decide and I like (apart from sexual actions) within the defined (nude) environment. I cannot feel comfortable if I have to bother all the times of closing my legs, so I don't bother. I spread when I like (and I surely like the feeling so much!), although at times it can be too much when somebody places too close (for the obvious reason of watching)...
Naturally we are covered by some patch of hair, but since I am waxed, I thought of this before going to the beach, so I can't complain ;-)
The size or particular 'parts' that may become more visible don't really matter, it's part of you, so be yourself and enjoy!
I agree with the beautiful sight :-) Doesn't matter what sex. If somebody is very impressive... ;-)
If we are not guilty of being too self-conscious, those who stare incessantly when they clearly shouldn't might make us uncomfortable. But I'd be surprised if it ever became an issue at a resort.
I know of one gal back in Wyoming where I'm from with an extremely enlarged clitorus. She and I went to several resorts together and she didn't worry about it and no one ever complained. It's all in the intent. So spread your wings and fly!
MS TIQUE. I am the same that I too have quite a large labia and yes with my legs open everything is on show.
Like you, it used to bother me especially with strangers or if aroused but have learnt not to worry about it. Although we are all slightly different, we are also all the same.
Unless you do not like being looked at it is not a problem.
