Of all things to be self conscious about, I kinda know this is ridiculous. All the vaginas I see in porn or online are flat and tight and mine looks really different.
There are a lot of extra flaps above my clitoris, and the lips hang down with it too. So basically it's not flat at all, and the hair on my crotch is like impossible to shave without itching.
Is my vagina abnormal? I usually don't care what other people think of me sexually compared to others, but I'm afraid people won't want to sleep with me because my vagina looks different. Am I crazy or is there a truth behind this?

Vulvas (the vagina is the inside part of the genitals, the part you can see is the vulva) come in all shapes, sizes and colours. The ones you see in porn or elsewhere online don't even come close to representing the variation that actually exists, so comparing yours to what you see in those images isn't sound. (And if you ever do meet someone who refuses to sleep with you because of the way your vulva looks, you've dodged a bullet, seriously. People who are caring, respectful sexual partners do not judge someone else's body parts.)
