I sincerely apologize for asking such a silly question, but this has really been bothering me... Is the word 'labia' singular or plural?

"My labia is beautiful?" or "My labia are beautiful?"

Or is/are labia like sheep? (as in, both plural and singular?)

Labia is plural. Labium is singular.

Like data / datum.

Ah thanks. That's what I thought, but I've seen it the other way so often that I wasn't sure.
