30 Years of 'Cosmo': Sex, Drugs & Sperm-Killers

More fun with the October issues of Cosmopolitan! Below, a gallery of advertisements that fall squarely into the "vice" category (i.e. they're all about sex, booze, smokes & contraception). Our favorite: The advertisement for Fredrick's of Hollywood's "Elite VII", which, unlike men, "doesn't stay out with the boys."

For 40 or so years we women have been taught we are now FREE to drink as much as we want, have sex with as many men as we want, work as much as we want (the kids will be fine) and my favorite since we have "Come a Long Way Baby", smoke as much as we want. Unfortunately no one ever told us we had to live with the consequences of all that also. But all of it sure looked good in the ads!
