The Name: Why Should I Care About Sex?

Updated: Sep 1, 2018




First time I heard Vagina-nomics, I panicked. Why do you want to talk about sex? Who cares? Is it not a topic widely thought about by men but never actually pronounced out loud? Have women ever spoken about sex in public? Yes. Have I listened to what they have to say? No.


Sex is a tricky subject. It is embarrassing to let others hear your personal thoughts and experiences, yet it is the most popular topic to discuss with friends. Pals care about your sex life. The human race cannot help but constantly compare and contrast what others do and do not do in and out of bed.

Sex is fun. We all love it, we all do it. But do we share it? If yes, then certainly not in public. The ones who want to show they care about sex are seen as vulgar or inappropriate. But what if those are the ones who play a crucial role in transforming the way sex is perceived by the current and the future generation likewise? What if our kids were less scared to discuss sex with the parents. What if sex stopped being a topic kids would discuss to be cool and instead learnt why is it necessary to have safe sex? What if vibrators stopped being the toy of desire and started being a natural part of every man’s and woman’s life which they would not be shy to speak about. Why is there no casual debate about sex as there is about weather or pets?


I dislike this prejudice. This post is based on common thoughts that surround sex and the most-commonly-interpreted thoughts. However, there is faith that not all people perceive sex the same way. How eye-opening was the feedback we received once we sent out our questionnaire and started launching the company. The first show-stopper was the name. ‘V-nomics’, Facebook suggested? No, thank you. ‘That magazine’. About ‘that thing’. Project for ‘nasty women’. ‘Inappropriate theme’. The more we spoke about the project, the more people were getting excited. But the more haters we started hearing.

People are scared to talk about sex. Yes, it is private, personal and individual, but no, it is not something to be ashamed of. So shush, please, you know you secretly (or openly) love sex so why should you be scared to pronounce these three letters out loud?


Couple of weeks ago, I was not able to put s, e and x together in a coherent sentence. Today, all I do, make and think about is (related to) sex. Vagina, no. I agree with Facebook that that is not a word kids should be using in kinder gardens. But hey, if they can smoke at the age of 10, they can surely learn what the word vagina means. They are going to use it much more than the lighter they stole from their daddy’s drawer.

All in all, vagina and sex are both going to be frequently used words (at least by us). Get ready! And if you believe that what happens behind closed doors is something we should talk about, subscribe to Vagina-nomics and let us introduce you to the sex scene through the power of art.
