What do guys do when they see hair in the shape of a heart or a lightning bolt? Tell us your… READ MORE »

Dear Cosmo,

Thanks so much for the free stencils in the May issue! While I think it’s cool that you’re clearly listening to your readers’ cries for more DIY content and money saving tips, I’m happy to leave the fancy pubic styling to the professionals. Trust me, I’m usually a shaver and maintain my… READ MORE »

…yet all I can think about is what on earth that “SEX ARTICLE WE CAN’T DESCRIBE HERE!” is about. What is so EWW DIRTY that Cosmo only dares tease us with its luridness?! Let’s guess!

Love & Sex

I’m of the last generation to learn about sex without the help of the internet. While I was spared the misinformation my pre-teen mind would’ve encountered in her furtive Google searches, I also missed out on the comprehensive dialogue that today’s young people can access.

Maybe starring on such a fashion-drenched TV show has rendered Penn Badgley qualified to dispense fashion advice, because he told Cosmo what he looks for when it comes to women’s style:

“A sweater-dress really can be the sexiest thing. As a man, I just like the simpler things … A plunging V-neck looks… READ MORE »

Lipstick and leopard print aren’t feminists’ usual weapons of choice, but the founding editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan always thought differently.

As the original “fun, fearless female,” Helen Gurley Brown lived a topsy-turvy life as a pioneer for women in media—and in the bedroom. A recent biography of Brown, Bad Girls Go Everywhere: The LifeREAD MORE »

Cosmopolitan’s bread and butter is teaching women how to sex things up, in a billion different ways, which is precisely why we were shocked to read this cover line on their March Issue: “An Orgasm Almost Killed Her!” with the laughable tag, “We Are Not Kidding.” Are they biting the hand that feeds, or has… READ MORE »

Statistically, there are roughly 3% more men than women in the world according to recent surveys. So, is a good man really that hard to find?

Cosmopolitan’s articles can induce so much puke, sometimes I think the magazine is making me bulimic. The sex advice usually applies to girls who drink too much at frat parties or bored housewives who just can’t figure out their husband is gay, but this month there’s a gem that can put any woman on top… READ MORE »
