I have always been insecure about my vagina. Its hard to explain but at one side of my outer lips it looks like a bunch of skin just hangs down, it is very sensitive but looks awful! When a man wants to go down and preform oral sex i wont let him as I am too embarassed, i also wonder if previous men have noticed but just havn't said. I have thought about surgery but just aren't sure. Any advice would be great!

Hey Lindsey, Welcome to Scarleteen!

First, let's do a little checking on terms. The vulva is the external part,and the vagina is internal (can only be seen with a speculum). You can see more about that in our article Innies & Outies: The Vagina, Clitoris, Uterus and More. But what you're describing is perfectly normal... you can read more about it here, in Vagzilla! (Or, All Genitals Great and Small)

You said you wondered if previous men have noticed and just not said anything and odds are if any of them had even a few moments to take a look they did. Though really it doesn't matter guys know even less on average about what is and isn't natural then women so if you aren't sure odds are they aren't either and will simply dismiss inconsistencies as normal unless told otherwise. From my personal experience if I ask to go down on a girl I only do so after I've had a good enough look to be comftorable doing so so the men who have asked to go down on you likely have looked and don't consider anything to be wrong so there isn't any point in letting embarressment hold you back.
