Cosmo Club + Sponsor Spotlight [Giveaway]

Ever since I started college back in August of 2007, the "it" magazine to read has been Cosmo. Like, I'm pretty sure the mail room at Luther is packed with probably 100+ Cosmopolitan magazines to stuff into student mailboxes.

I remember during our Freshman year, our floor would share magazines by setting them in the bathroom ledge for anyone to grab & take back to their room. Well, most of the time, Cosmo was all that was laying there. My roomies & I used to check for new issues and bring it back to our room to share with each other.

I guess it didn't really faze me them because, let's face it, most of us are exhibitionists in college. Forget walking all the way down the hall to the bathroom to change; let me just whip this dress off in my room & get into some sweats.

Now that I got a free years subscription to Cosmo coming to my mailbox every month, my first thought is...THEY LET PEOPLE READ THIS IN PUBLIC?!

Either I was such an exhibitionist back in the day that it didn't make me even blink or their covers have become much more in-yo-face, if you know what I mean.


I mean: EPIC SEX, GET IT, GIVE IT, & DO IT AGAIN (with Carly Rae Jepsen on the cover, no less. Doesn't she attract young fans???)

YOUR BEST SEX EVER! (with Miley on the cover, but, c'mon, would we expect anything less from her nowadays?)

23 SWEET & SEXY MOVES. ORGASM GUARANTEED! (but doesn't Rachel's dress look so cute?!)

I'm in no way a prude. And I'm not knocking Cosmo in any way. Because, let's face it, I'm still reading it!

It's just....when did it become acceptable to read this in public?

BTW - I'm bracing myself for all the spam commenting I may receive from this post.....


On a different note, I'd like you to meet one of my sponsor's this month:

  1. I haven't read Cosmo in awhile, but I did pick up the Rachel one because I love her. But yeah, those covers sometimes!! Shock value I guess?

  2. Hahaha I can't read Cosmo because it makes me feel so awkward! And... I'm married! If I had a subscription that came to my house I would DEFINITELY be reading it, but I just feel way to weird about it to pick it up at a grocery store - I mean, Wal-Mart keeps most of it covered because it's so inappropriate!

  3. lol oh cosmo. it's like a guilty reading pleasure lol. I don't typically read this mag but on occasion do.

  4. I must admit I have been an avid cosmo for many years, but I just read my new issue and now that I am married, I feel like a lot of the articles don't apply to me anymore... but I do love it:)
