Pussy Lips Hanging Out
Some women may feel that their vagina has a tongue. In short, the vagina slips down through the vaginal opening so that it looks like a small tongue, which may be normal or indicate a vaginal prolapse.

A vulva with asymmetrical inner lips is where one side of the labia minora is longer than the other, and hangs down a little past the labia majora. It may feel like it looks uneven, but it's a very common type of vulva, notes Mr Ibraheim.
This is the most common type of vulva, yet ironically the one women have historically felt most self-conscious about in the surgeon's experience. Here, the labia minora are longer than the labia majora. Because of the difference in length, the inner lips extend below the outer lips. This can range from a very subtle, slight protrusion to a much more visible one.
If you've got this type of vulva, your labia majora will curve round, exposing the labia minora front-on, but will meet evenly at the bottom like an upside down horseshoe. The labia minora here do not tend to hang below the outer lips.
This is the least common type of vulva, yet the most typically 'desired' one thanks to the fact it's the shape that's most frequently seen in porn - and it's essentially a Barbie vagina. With this kind of vulva, the labia minora are completely contained and hidden inside the labia majora. The outer lips here tend to be more or less flat and rest up against the pubic bone.
This vulva is similar to the one above, given the small lips. The main difference, however, is that here, the labia majora are set further apart, giving the appearance of being 'open' and meaning the labia minora can be visible.
The vulva is the outer part of the female genitals. The vulva includes the opening of the vagina (sometimes called the vestibule), the labia majora (outer lips), the labia minora (inner lips), and the clitoris.
Around the opening of the vagina, there are 2 sets of skin folds. The inner set, called the labia minora, are small and hairless. The outer set, the labia majora, are larger, with hair on the outer surface. (Labia is Latin for lips.) The inner and outer labia meet, protecting the vaginal opening and, just above it, the opening of the urethra (the short tube that carries urine from the bladder). The Bartholin glands are found just inside the opening of the vagina -- one on each side. These glands produce a mucus-like fluid that acts as a lubricant during sex.
An "outie vagina" refers to when the labia minora (the inner lips) are longer and protrude out of the labia majora (the outer lips), says Marsha Granese, MD, and OB-GYN at Providence Mission Hospital.
As a result, the labia minora can be seen or felt from the outer labia. While it's common for people with outies to feel self-conscious about their protruding inner lips, it's important to note that this is the most common type of vagina, according to a 2017 study.
