Has anyone ever noticed how much better the british Cosmo is compared to the american?
In my opinion, its like 30 times better.
Is it even possible to get the british one is the U.S.?
Probably not. They wouldn’t want the competition I guess.
I’m lucky enough to be able to choose between 5 Cosmos each month: american, british, danish, norwegian and swedish.
The britsh is definitely number one though. In the january issue, they had this article where they compared friends to shoes. Could the american version even come up with that? I don’t think soooo.
Its totally true too. Everyone has different friends that they go to for different situations and different types of support. Its the same with shoes! Everyone has different shoes that they wear on different occasions, right?
Well, I do at least.
… about women and sex.
I was reading Cosmo today when I ran into this book, Sh*t My Dad Says, that actually started out as a twitter page owned by Justin Halpern. I was reading the excerpts that the magazine had and decided that I totally have to have this book. Its hilarious. Just read and enjoy:
On friendship: “You’ve got good friends. I like them. I don’t think they would fuck your girlfriend, if you had one.”
On getting dumped by my first girlfriend: “Listen, I understand why you’re upset, but you’re both 19. You can’t think you were only gonna screw each other forever. That’s just silly talk.”
On furnishing one’s home: “Pick your furniture like you pick a wife. It should make you feel comfortable and should look nice, but not so nice that if someone walks past it, they want to steal it.”
On my trip to Europe: “I know you think you’re going to get all kinds of laid. It’s not a magic place, it’s the same as here. Don’t be stupid.”
I totally want to meet this guy. I would never stop laughing.
I am an avid reader of Cosmo. If I can’t get my hands on the magazine itself, you will definitely find me on their website. I don’t always agree with what they say or write about, but there is always something to make me smile or to peak my interests. As of right now I like the article “The Big Easy”. Its an article that reveals the most and least well endowed cities in the United States. It kinda made me smile. Starting from worst to best, the list goes as follows:
- Los Angeles (bahahha. made me laugh)
- Saint Louis
- San Francisco
- New York City
- San Diego
- Washington D.C.
- And the number one is… New Orleans. Looks like Mardi Gras isn’t all they have to offer.
Ladies, today we are putting to rest all those myths about men and sex. No one really knows where they originate from, but everyone’s heard them. Some are waaay farfetched, some sound like they can be plausible. But now, our minds will finally be put to ease.
- Big feet = Big Penis
Sorry ladies, but in no way, shape or form does a man’s shoe size effect the size of his package. As much as we’d all like this to be true (because, hey, it’d make things easier) its been disproven in countless numbers of surveys over the years. But I wouldn’t put it past people to continue spreading this myth as fact.
- Men are always in the mood for sex
Looks like girls aren’t the only ones that need a break then. This myth has been a relationship enemy for a long time. Girls assume the guys want sex all the time, and when they don’t they feel unwanted. Guys find it hard to livie up to the expectation of being able and willing at anytime. So relax guys and girls, just because you or your partner aren’t in the mood doesn’t necessarily mean something is wrong.
- Men want sex more than woman
Wrong! This a purely chemical thing. In the first 18 months of being in a relationship guys and girls release a chemical called PEA which amps up the sex drive. The only diference is that for the girls, the chemical slowly stops being released around the 2 years mark, but for the guys it keeps going on for awhile longer. So its not that they want more sex then women, their bodies just produce more chemicals than women.
- The average erection is 8 inches long
Try more like 5.5 to 6.2 inches. What can I say, guys are fibbers. This myth has only led to girls feeling short-changed and guys feeling insecure. So stop the fretting boys, 6 inches is nothing to worry about.
- Men think about sex every 7 seconds
Think logically people, not possible. Let’s do some math. Say the average man stays awake for about 16 hours, thats 57,000 thoughts of sex in one day. That about the amount of times we breath when we are awake. If men thought about sex every 7 seconds they wouldn’t be able to concentrate on anything else.
- Men never fake it
Now this is one myth that surprised even me. It turns out that sometimes men need to fake an orgasm too. The main reason for men faking it is that they aren’t in the mood, but don’t want to hurt their partners feelings. The second biggest reason is that they have come too many times already and are just worn out. It might be harder for men to fake it, but apparently its possible.
- Men aren’t into foreplay
Get ready for the long haul ladies, cause men like the foreplay. The building of tension with teasing touches or playing games makes everything that much sweeter for them, and for us. I guess the big O isn’t the only thing on his mind as often as we think.
- Men only get turned on my sexy underwear
Nope. Sure every once in awhile is nice to pull out the lacy and frilly underwear, but if you wear it too often, they’ll get bored with it. There’s nothing wrong with occasionally wearing a nice pair of cotton undies instead of the silk and fancy stuff. Change it up ladies, that’s whats important.
So those are all the myths put to rest for now. You can read more about it in the march edition of Cosmo, not to mention the 5 truths about men&sex.
Did you know that 63% of women, if forced to choose, would give up sex before they gave up kissing?
I love little Cosmo fun-facts such as these. They are the whole reason I buy the magazine. To read the awesome sex/relationship related articles. My favorite article is the Febuary addition is “It’s in His Kiss”. There are lots of fun kissing facts. Here’s another.
Did you know 46% of men expect kissing to lead to sex?
Good kissing isn’t necessarily only about technique. It has a lot to do with the person you’re kissing. But there are some techniques that can spice up your kissing experience.
”Take a sip of champagne or liqueur leaving a little bit on your lips, that way when you kiss he’ll get a little taste of what you’re having.”
“While kissing, gently nibble at his tongue and lips.”
3.The Angel Kiss:
“Kiss gently around the corners of his eyes, before kissing his eyelids.”
4.The Rain Kiss:
“While its puring down rain, alternate between kissing your guy and sucking the water from his jawline and eyelashes. (This works in the shower as well.)”
Like with everything else in life, practice makes perfect. Its rare that a person is born a perfect kisser, so don’t get down if you’re not number one yet. You’ve got plenty of time to practice girls.
Did you know the average women will kiss 79 people before she marries?
