Hex life is a clever play on the phrase "sex life". Discussing one's sexual relations, i.e. my sex life has never been more fantastic, is often referred to as a candid or racy topic of conversation and such a phrase might be used only in conversations with close company. Witches are associated with hexes and the word hex first appeared in American English in 1830, from the following etymology: Pennsylvania German hexe "to practice witchcraft", German hexen "to hex”, related to Hexe "witch," from Middle High German hecse, hexse, from Old High German hagazussa.
