Glamour Magazine recently hosted a night for strong, independent women called These Girls. Among the attendees were Rashida Jones, Lauren Miller, and deadpan comedienne Aubrey Plaza.
Olivia Wilde spoke a the event, discussing her divorce, personifying her vagina (and its death) for the occasion, and explaining her idea of Utopia, called Olivia Land.
“In Olivia Land, relationships can legally only last seven years, without an option to renew. That way it never goes stale. Can you imagine, if we only had seven years? We'd be so nice to each other, so kind, and appreciative and enthusiastic, like we were eating a really expensive bowl of pasta… I would like to legalize prostitution.
"Hiring a sex worker in Olivia Land would be as easy, hygienic, and inexpensive as getting a pedicure. That way when away on business or just not in the mood, we could just hire a hooker for our loved one and keep them uninterested in cheating and keep them satisfied.”
Of course Olivia Land can never be a thing, It's not in most of us to give our love an expiry date - just try to look at your partner for a second and try not to imagine them, old and grey, enjoying the company of your children. But, for some, it might actually make life and love easier.
When explaining her vagina’s death, Wilde advised on how we're supposed to know if a relationship isn't right: simply listen to your genitals.
“Sometimes your vagina dies," Wilde 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.”
She also added, "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."
