In what is likely a first for television, Tyra Banks on Monday will devote her entire hour-long talk show to discussing ... the vagina.

"I have wanted to do this show for two years," says Banks, 33. "I know for a lot of women talking about what is going on in our bodies is extremely difficult, but it is incredibly important."

She added, "We should be able to talk to our daughters, sisters, mothers and friends about our bodies and not be embarrassed. I hope after this show women will not be ashamed about what's up down there."

Banks gives her audience an anatomy quiz, welcomes two gynecologist to the show, and shows a segment in which she takes a 28-year-old Plano, Texas, woman to her very first gynecological appointment – all in an effort to educate women about what can be an uncomfortable topic.

She explains: "My mother told me to look at myself because, 'It's just another part of your body that needs to be healthy just like your eyes, your nose, your ears, your mouth and everything else.' "

I think its good because there are some grown women who know nothing about their bodies.

I feel like Oprah has been there, done that.... but kudos to more vajaja talk.

Can't get enough of it.

Tyra has a younger demographic so its good that shes trying to teach younger women/girls.

Tyra is like so different from a lot of women and talk show host; that's why I like her. I may not watch her show alot, but she's a very real and down-to earth person. I really don't see anything wrong with it.

I like Tyra. She is more approachable than Oprah. I think the show will be great. I know Tyra has a lot of younger fans and they need vajayjay info too.

I'm not much of a Tyra fan, but I think it's a good idea for a show. Hopefully it'll teach some ladies how to stay healthy and the importance of their yearly physicals.

yea, tyra is way more approachable than oprah. oprah is good and all but when i think of her i think of a completely different generation that doesn't really understand the the younger people
