Labia piercings are one type of female genital piercing.
It can be done either through the labia minora or the labia majora.
They’re simpler and more common genital piercings performed
on women and are often pierced in symmetrical pairs.
Like all genital piercings, depending on jewellery
and placement, they may provide additional stimulation
to one or both partners during sexual intercourse.
