Most women we know can only stomach Cosmpolitan Magazine if they read it ironically and pretend it's The Onion for ladies. (How are tips like "Draw an attention-grabbing circle around your nipples using rhinestones and body glue for a special night in" not genius parody? Ugh.) But to say the maniacally sex-obsessed… »

The first Cosmo of the new year is out! And it's touting "Sexy Sex." Sexy Sex!
