Quiz: Can You Tell Real Cosmo Sex Advice From Fake BS We Made Up?
My standard response to reading the vast majority of sex advice printed in Cosmopolitan: “Oh, come ON!” I don’t think I could come up with more ridiculous sex advice if I … oh hell, I’ll give it a shot. In this quiz, each slide contains a piece of advice that either appeared in the pages of Cosmo or was pulled from the ass of a Frisky staff member. Can you tell the REAL Cosmo advice from the sex tips we just made up? (Answers revealed on the slide that follows and so on…) Tell us how you did on my little quiz and then feel free to share your own ridiculous and potentially dangerous FAKE Cosmo advice in the comments.

Rihanna Blames, But Understands, Her Abusive Father

“I actually feel really bad for my father. He was abused, too — he got beat up by his stepdad when he was young. He has resentment toward women, because he felt like his mum never protected him, and unfortunately, my mother was the victim of that. I’m not giving him excuses. Right is right and wrong is wrong. I still blame him. But I understand the source.”

Rihanna opened up about her father’s physical abuse at home and the domestic violence she grew up with (and later experienced in her infamously abusive relationship with ex Chris Brown). I’m always pleased when someone contextualizes an issue like domestic violence like this. As much as people — myself included — want to hate on someone like Chris Brown for being “a bad guy,” we also have to remember that abusive relationships don’t just happen out of thin air. There’s a cycle of violence that victims and perpetrators are looped into. It’s very big of Rihanna to say that while she still blames her dad and his parents for their negative impact on the family, she accepts it for what it is.

Kat Dennings In “Daydream Nation”: It’s Like “Easy A,” But Darker


Easy A,” starring Emma Stone, was a fun flick about a girl branded as a “slut” in high school. Funny it ’twas, but realistic? Not quite. “Daydream Nation” (which hits theaters on April 15 in Canada and May 6 in the U.S.) looks a hell of a lot more realistic. Kat Dennings stars as a high school girl who arrives in a new town with a reputation and, it seems from the trailer, sets her sights on both a hot guy and a hot teacher. Looks good!

But why is it that in every high school sex film, the guys are trying to get as much poon as possible and the girls — whether sexually active or virginal — are all dealing with getting called “sluts”? Seriously, you need a new script, Hollywood. [Lainey Gossip] Keep reading »

For The Week Of April 11-17, 2011

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

We all have a freakier side our desires, and happy are the times we get to live it up and explore on them. This week is your week to let your libido run wild and have your passions burn, as the fuel to incinerate your repressions is here. It’s your time to usher in a new era of freedom and sexual confidence!

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

You may have a very pleasant way about you in public, but even you can’t hide the condescension when you are feeling so negatively about another. Forget trying to people please your way through this one, because you won’t be able to grasp any solid answers to work through it. If you feel it, say it, as some heat under your collar will warm you up quite nicely now.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

You can make up some weird rules for yourself sometimes, just to test your own endurance — but what does that get you? Sure, you have learned time and time again that you are as tough as nails, but if you are not getting more out of it, then it’s time to get back to the drawing board and rework a few of your strategies.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Power is money and you know it. Don’t delude yourself that it doesn’t matter in your relationships, because no matter how much you try to ignore it, it’ll rear its ugly head and you’ll just have to deal. But it doesn’t have to be more of a demon than you make it out to be — peaceful solutions are possible.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

There is no reason to second-guess yourself, especially if you are getting a funny feeling someone isn’t treating you as they should. However, instead of taking time to make excuses for the situation, own up to the truth of the matter and put your foot down. This is your time to stick up for yourself, because if you don’t, no one will ever know what hurts you.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Think back to something you predicted or thought of ages ago, because this week will prove your psychic skills are on point. Yes, something you knew was coming is going to take hold of you now and when it does, it won’t shock you, so much as leave you a little numb. After all, the predictable has never really turned you on.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

At the end of the day all romantic relationships that work have a strong friendship as its basis. However, just because that part of the equation is major, doesn’t mean it should negate all else either — as in, how do-able are you still to each other? If your answer is shamefully low, don’t worry; this is your week to successfully start spicing things up.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Approach this week delicately, as it’ll do you good to enter it confidently, but not cockily. Yes, know your worth and what you’re capable of doing, but don’t push too hard in letting that other person know — whether it be your baby or boss. Whatever the situation is, they’ll have to make the ultimate choic

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

People have a funny way of showing they care and sometimes it’ll mean, on your part, reading between the lines. This week, don’t be scared to have to dig deeper to find what you need, but beware that not all that you learn may be as pretty as you’d wish, as sometimes the truth can be downright dirty.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Timing may be your gift in comedy, but in life, you can’t seem to hit the mark — but whatever. If things are meant to be, they’ll happen when you feel comfortable with them, but you’ll be required to call some shots. Sure, the 11th hour isn’t always the most popular one, but it does hold the most anticipation, so make that entrance!

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

If love could only make someone perfect, but no…Yes, when it comes to the object of your affection, deep dark secrets may surface and make you do a double-take. While it may be good or bad, the toss up is in the air and surprises will be in store, as things will start to slowly unravel this week.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

As much spirit as you bring, you can’t always expect it back. Sometimes another will have a bizarre way of showing their appreciation and that is just how the cookie will crumble. Of course, if this buzz kill continues, realize that you may just be barking up the wrong tree, as enthusiasm is ultimately one of your many aphrodisiacs.

Masturbation May Help To Relieve Restless Legs Syndrome

Apparently, being master of your domain isn’t all that it’s hyped up to be. Researchers say that for sufferers of the neurological disorder restless legs syndrome, a little self-pleasure could be just what the doctor ordered.

In a recent letter published by the medical journal Sleep Medicine, Luis Marin and colleagues at the Federal University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, report the case of a patient who, with masturbation and sexual intercourse, eased the symptoms of his RLS.

“The patient reported that he would get complete relief from RLS symptoms, granting him normal sleep following sexual intercourse or masturbation,” the letter read. Read more… Keep reading »

Guy Pearce Was A Teenage Bodybuilder

“I won the junior state championship when I was about 16. I just found the whole world of bodybuilding really fascinating. The idea of actually changing yourself was fascinating, and then as I got older I concentrated on developing my mind and spirit rather than my biceps. I was always looking at my biceps wishing they were bigger. I was never quite the proud bodybuilder that I think some guys are.”

—Guy Pearce fesses up that when he was a teenager, he was super into weight lifting. Even though his thigh muscles aren’t the size of my waist now, I’ll still be into seeing his nakey scenes with Kate Winslet in “Mildred Pierce.” I just like the fact that in an alternate world, he’s Arnold Schwarzenneger.
