Shooting fish in a barrel, falling off a log, making fun of Cosmo

Take a look at the cover of this edition of Cosmopolitan, on newsstands now:



Was there a word that kinda jumped out at you?

Let's review the headlines.

"His G Spot: Yup, He's Got One Too…" Connotations: pleasant connotations with sex and romance.
"The Girlfriend Habit That'll Deepen His Love" Connotations: pleasant connotations with sex and romance.
"Sexy Hair: Fresh Looks You'll Adore" Connotations: pleasant connotations with sex, romance, and self-improvement.
"Dragging Ass Lately? New Energy-Boosting Advice" Connotations: pleasant connotations with self-improvement
"PLUS How to Dress This Summer" Connotations: pleasant connotations with self-improvement.
"4 Things All Guys Crave Hearing" Connotations: pleasant connotations with sex and romance.
"Carmen Electra Shares Her Secrets In Sexy Confidence" Connotations: pleasant connotations with sex, romance, and self-improvement.
"The Hottest Things to Do to a Man (IN 60 SECONDS OR LESS)" Connotations: pleasant connotations with sex and romance.
"5 Signs a Guy Is Capable of Rape" Connotations: RAPE, a horrible crime associated with sex or romance gone wrong.

The suggestion of sex crimes on the cover leaves all the other talk of sex seeming downright creepy. If your man were a potential rapist, would you still want to know about his G spot? Would you still want to know what he craves hearing? My guess would be "no" and thinking about it makes me a little queasy.

I don't know what those five signs of a potential rapist are, but I would be willing to guess that they might include "drinks or uses drugs a lot" and "violent." Which leads to the question: if you were still spending time with this man even though he is a drunk/druggie/thug, would an article in Cosmo be the impetus for your leaving?

(And now, guessing at the answers to the other headlines: It's on his penis. Listen to his problems. Comb it. Eat a balanced diet. Wear loose-fitting layers to guard against mosquitos. "I love you." Be really, really, ridiculously good looking. Show him your boobs.)
