What is Vagina-nomics?
Vagina-nomics is a feminist platform destigmatising pleasure through art and design. It includes a biannual printed magazine supported by an online journal and a series of events. The physical artefact will be roughly 100 pages long, covering a variety of topics from female sexuality and health to sex and pleasure. Vagina-nomics will target both men and women of all ages with an interest in feminist subjects (gender equality, sexuality, and sexual health), art and design. The aim is to end the taboos related to sex (the gender as well as the act) and to encourage a conversation.
The target audience is predominantly young individuals interested in art and design but not necessarily pursuing a career in this area. The main requirement of the audience is to be interested in topics that are natural to women, yet rarely spoken of, and the art and design will serve as an enabler of an easier conversation about these subjects.
The funding will cover:
- printing of the second issue
- printing of tote bags
- packaging costs
- pay key contributors
The plan is to distribute Vagina-nomics magazine on a large scale within the UK and abroad.
- Size: 180x150mm
- Paper: 300gsm coated (cover) and Cyclus Offset (text)
- Binding: perfect bound

Risks and challenges
The challenges are not having enough resources for creation, printing and distribution of the magazine. Also, there will need to be sufficient audience buying the VN magazine. However, the feedback so far has been fantastic and we strongly believe, because of the extensive research we conducted, that more and more people will be genuinely interested in discovering more about sex and pleasure.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
