I did indeed wonder during puberty if there was something wrong with me. While my mother assured me I was normal, she also, in her embarrassment, barely glanced at my labia. The magazines I could get access to at the time showed vaginas that did not look like mine. However, my “situation” never had any effect in my sex life, enjoyment of sex, or choice of sexual partners. There have been no complaints by men of any age. Perhaps there are medical reasons to have labiaplasty, but you would have to prove it to me. The only reason I can imagine is for an intersex individual who prefers to present as male.
