    Apparently S-E-X Sales

    So I was trying to clear out some of my old magazines (3 boxes full and more coming in every month. Yikes! What have I succumbed to?). But then I began to notice a trend with the Cosmopolitan magazine. At first I was like: Wow, that's interesting. But then it just started to get annoying.

    Every left-hand corner of every issue of Cosmo has the word "SEX" typed in big capital letters. SEX SEX SEX like that's all women really want to read about. Like those 3 letters are what catches our eye and makes us pick up that magazine.

    What annoyed me the most: It seems to work. I've apparently fallen for it. They've herded us in like cattle.

    By the way, I cancelled my subscription to Cosmo about a year ago. Their articles were just a little too redundant...

    Besides, there's only so many ways to kiss, so many positions, so many ways to ask him out, and so many ways to apply smokey eye makeup that after 4 months of issues, the magazine just seems to repeat itself. Same stuff just different pictures.
