The Day Her Vagina Died
Wednesday Oct 10, 2012 - BY Stacey
How do you know when your marriage is over?
According to actress Olivia Wilde, who was performing a monologue (along with many other ladies) about her divorce from her husband of 8 years, it felt like her vagina had died. She said (with boyfriend Jason Sudeikis in the audience):
“I felt like my vagina died. Turned off. Lights out … And you can lie to your relatives at Christmas dinner and tell them everything on the home front is just peachy. But you cannot lie to your vagina.”
She sagely continued (at the after party):
“Sometimes your vagina dies,” she says. “Then you know it’s time to go. There’s no reason to sacrifice your womanhood and femininity for some sort of weird feeling of responsibility to something that may not be right. I feel like far too many women do that.” Also, “[Men] are not allowed to be the only ones thinking with their genitals. We think with our pussies.”
In Wilde’s estimation, if your vagina isn’t feeling it, there is really no point to make an effort to fix things. They are irreparably broken. And she is right, at least to a degree. Women tend to prioritize their responsibilities and let their sexuality take a backseat. Men, on the other hand, are “allowed” by society to make their decisions with their penises.
Also, if the heat is gone (and you’ve gone to therapy and tried all ways and means to rekindle it), it might be time to call it a day. It’s exceedingly difficult to fool one’s genitals into being aroused or satisfied when you’re not feeling it. That’s why all of the ex-gay reparative therapy always fails.
Thankfully, this story has a happy ending. Vaginas, unlike people who’ve been deceased for a long time, can be revived. Wilde (and her vagina) found renewed life and happiness with Sudeikis.
