Cosmo… and not in the good ‘Please pour me another!’ way.

.

This month’s gift subscription came in the mail today.

For which I’m still questioning my girlfriend’s sanity.

At first glance I thought I might be able to skip blogging about the silly rag this time around, but that ended on page 58.

I’ve never been on a cruise…. but if I ever decide to take one? I can guarantee you it won’t be because I want to bang strangers in front of my husband.

.

I have to admit these tips were extremely disappointing. Somehow I expected more than “don’t wear underwear” and “don’t park on a hill”. Those are pretty basic.

It amazes me that people pay money for this trash.

  1. Car sex: 1972 Ford Econoline with a gel bed, an improved suspension and a disco ball hanging from the shag carpeted ceiling good, MG Midget bad. Everything else is filler.
    Sex cruise with the banging and the strangers and the gleben (Think Frink): I would never be able to get that out of my mind. I don’t pass judgement on anyone’s kink but that could never be me. Cosmopolitan is definitely not the rag for me.

      1. True, but of late young women have felt peer pressured to do a lot things they would normally want to do. I don’t know if you got the show in Maine a couple years ago, but one of the Canadian investigative reporters followed groups of young women somewhere in Nova Scotiabank or New Brunswick, basically neighbours of yours, on their Friday night escapades. It was basically get so drunk that they didn’t care who they went home with, or what happened to them there. The guys wanted to get laid, so the girls became pillows for them. They seldom knew how they got home in the mornings. Whether condoms were used they never knew for sure. They had no self-confidence at all. It was what other girls were doing, so they thought it was expected of them. It was hard to watch, but harder to ignore. These are the future mothers of the next generations. How can they teach their children anything when they already hate themselves? They were basically walking zombies with no self-respect. It was as they were watching the pre-viewing of the show, also part of the final show, that a lot of them broke down because they were too drunk to care what was happening to them. In my younger days we had more respect for the ladies we were with, even as free-loving hippis. Today”s guys embarrass me, they really have no respect for women to take part in these sad affairs.

      2. I am sorry, that was not my intention. But since I watched that program it has never been far from my conscious mind. It made such a “sick society” statement. It is another reason I will not be sorry to see humanity succumb to the Climate Crisis we have created, NOT JUST FOR OURSELVES, but for every living being on this planet.
        Don’t know if you ever read any Science Fiction as a youngster, and you are too young to have been reading when a certain set of writers wrote books about how if there is a galactic civilization out there, they would not want humans around them. We are too war crazy. No one listened, we are still war crazy. But we are also pollution crazy, AND we are human misery crazy. Society tells us “we are supposed to care about each other, and the other inhabitants of Rocket Ship Earth,” but really we only care about ourselves and those we supposedly love. Everyone else can go to hell in a huge handbasket. I am in the middle of writing a post on the real cost of credit debt, which is not the interest we are paying on the money we owe, but the human misery caused by never getting out of debt once we are in it.
        The story about the young women is not related to credit card debt, but it is another tale of human misery. There are so many of them it is hard to stay sane in the face of how we treat our fellow living beings. As I said, I didn’t mean to make you depressed, but really, maybe if we all brought our depressions out and talked about them publicly, maybe then we might actually do something about them.
        But I do wish you a good day. I mean it. Have a happy day, Juli.

      3. Thank you. It’s hard not to be depressed by the state of humanity… and the world in general. But there are still good people and I have to hold out hope. Though I can’t fault alien civilizations fir avoiding us like the plague.

  2. I’ve never read a woman oriented porno mag, but that sounds a lot like Penthouse Forum. In other words, complete unmitigated bullshit. Ever seen one of those phone booths? I’d have a hard time stepping into one to make a phone call. It ain’t all Downton Abbey over there.

  3. I will skip the collect call humor and wander back to the cover. Next month they should have an article on how to warm up the little chain link dress before putting it on… or is it only meant for warmer climes ?
