|Cosmo's idea of "If Men Edited Cosmo." They don't think much of men I guess.|
Do Women Wrestlers Know Something We Don't?...How to wrestle?
(This turns out to just be a bunch of bad metaphors about how you should "never let your guard down" and "roll with the punches" and I think these are actually boxing concepts but whatever.)
You are out with pals and want the last bar stool but the chick in the adjacent chair has her purse hanging off it. Don't ask to sit there--it implies you think you're doing something wrong. Just take the seat. She'll get the hint to grab her stuff.Or there's someone sitting there! For a magazine that tries to project an ultra-sophisticated, master-manipulator facade, Cosmo can be pretty dense about basic human interactions. Anyway I'm pretty unclear on what happens if I "imply I think I'm doing something wrong." Total ostracism from human society?
The Crazy Thing My Gyno Said to MeThis is a genuinely disturbing article. It's a mix of the merely goofy:
"My gyno used a mirror to show me my cervix, which she called my 'pink doughnut.' Gross!"And the completely inappropriate and borderline criminal:
"While doing an exam, my OB-gyn, his face closer to my hoo-ha than it needed to be, told me how beautifully groomed I was, then patted my butt. I was so floored, I just mumbled 'thank you' and prayed for the exam to be over."The upsetting thing is that Cosmo doesn't make any distinction between the two, nor any suggestion that the latter is something that you can take up with the doctor's employer or the state licensing board. It's just another wacky hijink! Just another thing that you're expected to put up with and shrug off. The concept that sometimes shit is wrong and dangerous only exists in the "very special socially aware story of the month" section of Cosmo, and absolutely nowhere else. Everywhere else, sexual harassment is a hijink.
My guy is small down below but gets really big when he has an erection. Is this normal?Yeah, it's called an erection.
The weirder part here, though, is the question of "normal." I mean, clearly this isn't the symptom of a disease or some horrific genetic defect. So does it really matter in some big anxiety-provoking way whether "small but gets big" is a common way for penises to be? Unless you were considering whether to submit him to Ripley's Believe It Or Not, I guess. Then you definitely want to do some research beforehand.
There wasn't much bad sex advice in this issue. Cosmo, I am disappointed. When you don't give me bad sex advice, I'm left with nothing but sexism and social buffoonery. It gets depressing! At least tell me something amusing I could do to testicles.
