If you, like me, enjoy seeing lines from dense theoretical texts you read in college mashed up with the splashy cover stories of Cosmopolitan, then this is the Tumblr for you. More
You may have noticed, it’s been a very Taylor Swift year around here. If all the pert, bland pretty pretty princess-ing about was starting to bore you, good news: you’re not alone. Apparently Taylor Swift is real bad at moving copies of the magazines she covers. More

Why is it news when a stunning 23-year-old models for a magazine? It’s always news when a plus size girl stars in a spread that isn’t retro-inspired. More
New York recently sat in on a meeting at the new Cosmo under Joanna Cole. In the most interesting bit, a senior editor, Anna Davies, declares that “No girl who is 22, 23 years old should be sleeping with a 23-year-old! She needs a fortysomething-year-old vice-president from Morgan Stanley. Who will at least teach her how to have interesting, good sex.” We found this interesting considering… considering Cosmo. Anyway, we decided to ask ourselves… is it true? Should we all just be dating older men who love capitalism?? More

Trailblazing Cosmopolitan editor Helen Gurley Brown passed away earlier today at the advanced age of 90, proving that a commitment to hard work, hard penises, and pretzel-like sex moves can help you live a long and happy life. You can say what you like about the more problematic aspects of her ideology (and I have), but the fact is that if it weren’t for Helen Gurley Brown, I might not be posting on this ladyblog right now, because “women’s media” as we know it would not be the same. As an instigator of the sexual revolution and a champion of certain aspects of feminism, this woman did much to propagate the then-radical ideas that women were just as competent as men and furthermore, could enjoy sex as much as men, without succumbing to any of those “ruined woman” tropes that had been oppressing us for so long. She was also eminently quotable! And so, without further ado, I give you some of Helen Gurley Brown’s best quotes on life, love, gender politics, and money. More

Khloe Kardashian has the May cover of Cosmopolitan (why?), featuring the usual relentless Photoshop and cover lines that reinforce sexual insecurity and hatred of one’s body. ORGASMS? SEX? FAT-BURNING? Perfect. It’s reassuring that some things never change. More
A recently unearthed ad promoting the 1972 launch of Cosmopolitan Magazine shows it to have been about pretty much the same things it’s about now. Does that mean it was/is progressive for its time, regressive for our time, or both? More
