See also: labiae




  1. (obsolete) plural of labia
    • 1809, Charles Bell and John Bell, The Anatomy of the Human Body, Collins and Perkins; Part III, Chapter I, page #129:
      The great sensibility of the membrane which lines the inside of the labiæ, requires some defence, and therefore the whole surface is amply supplied with mucous folicules and glands. The labiæ are a protection to the other soft parts, so necessary, that the clitoris, or nymphæ, when they project beyond them, are subject to violent inflammation.
