  1. Labia minora

    The labia minora, also known as the inner labia, inner lips, vaginal lips, or nymphae, are two flaps of skin on either side of the human vaginal opening, situated between the labia majora. Inner lips vary widely in size, colour, and shape from woman to woman. The inner lips extend from the clitoris obliquely downward, laterally, and backward on either side of the vulval vestibule, ending between the bottom of the vulval vestibule and the outer lips. The posterior ends of the inner lips are usually joined across the middle line by a fold of skin, named the frenulum labiorum pudendi or fourchette. On the front, each lip divides into two portions. The upper part of each lip passes above the clitoris to meet the upper part of the other lip—which will often be a little larger or smaller—forming a fold which overhangs the glans clitoridis; this fold is named the preputium clitoridis. The lower part passes beneath the glans clitoridis and becomes united to its under surface, forming, with the inner lip of the opposite side, the frenulum clitoridis. On the opposed surfaces of the labia minora are numerous sebaceous glands not associated with hair follicles.
