The other day, I realized that I always put on my underwear with such intense concentration and anxiety that you’d think it was some kind of perverted carnival game. Why? Because I read in Cosmopolitan like six years ago that if you let your feet touch the crotch part of your panties while you’re putting them on, you will get some horrible vaginal foot fungus (it was discussed in an article called, like, “THE LATEST WOMEN’S HEALTH SCARE YOUR DOCTOR WON’T TELL YOU ABOUT).
The truth is, between the smoky eye tutorials and charming Taylor Swift profiles, women’s magazines also excel at scaring the shit out of you. I asked the rest of The Frisky staff about the freaky things they’d learned from years of reading lady mags, and we came up with the following list. Feel free to add your own in the comments!

Not gonna lie, I have a soft spot for Miley Cyrus. I like that “Party in the USA” song and I admire the way she’s rebelled against being the big-haired pop princess goodie-goodie Disney no doubt wanted her to be. My love for her will come to a screeching halt if she has a baby before I do (looking kind of likely considering she’s engaged already) but until then, Miley gets my thumbs up.

We get it. Guys are tough to figure out: There’s like 24 possible combinations that you can make with 1) beer 2) food 3) sex and 4) sports. No wonder their girlfriends have to resort to lady magazines to gain insight into the buzzing hive that is the male mind.

It’d pretty much turn into a nightmare of paranoia and petty revenge. After all, according to various Cosmo articles…
#7: He Shares the Details of His Day, Therefore He Must Be Hiding Something
Men just aren’t as communicative as women, especially when they’re stressed. So, let’s say a guy makes a conscious decision to share more. That’s solid advice, no matter the source. When she asks him about his day, instead of just saying, “fine,” he can tell her in detail about his argument with Sarah, the lady from HR. Read more…
You’ve walked innocently past issues of Cosmopolitan magazine a thousand times, every time you’ve checked out at a grocery store. If you glanced at the covers then you know it’s all about sex, and helping girls bring out the sexual animal in their man.
But littered amongst their mildly kinky and often impractical advice (“wear a wet t-shirt to bed!”) you get horrifying tips that border on genital mutilation.
Think we’re kidding? As we speak, Cosmo is advising women to… Keep reading »
Let’s get right to the point. This is the lede of an article in Cosmopolitan‘s October 2012 issue: “Julie, 29, has amazing orgasms. The catch? They’re with her vacuum cleaner.”
Julie*, whose name has been changed of course, continues:
