I am back on the mainland and blogging from Seattle with South Austin in the rearview mirror. Don't worry Virgin Island fans, I will most certainly be back in the Caribbean for visits if not full-time. And I'm sure St. Thomas will creep it's way into many future posts. For now, it's all about living in the Pacific Northwest!

Is Cosmo still Cosmopolitan?

I was at the salon this week. While waiting for the magic to happen beneath tens of little square foilies, I snatched up the nearest magazine. It was the latest edition of Cosmo (the one with Dakota Fanning on the cover). I had plenty of time to flip through the entire issue but there was one little piece (one particular word) that got stuck out and demanded to be noticed?
Before I go there, let's review just how popular this magazine is. A quick hit on Wikipedia reveals that the magazine was first published in 1886 as a family magazine. Nice. You've come a long way baby. Apparently, it has 63 international editions, is printed in 32 languages and is distributed in more than 100 countries. I wonder if all of the 63 international editions have similar content? If you Google Cosmopolitan Magazine, you not only get the www.cosmopolitan.com subscription link with the lead in "Cosmopolitan is the lifestylist for millions of fun fearless females who want to be the best they can in every area of their lives." You then get additional links to each of those areas: Sex & Love, Sex Positions, Great Sex Ideas, Sex Tips from Guys, Crazy Sex Positions, and Bedroom Blog. I don't know about you ladies but that about covers all the areas of my life.

So, what was the piece that got noticed? 
This little gem at the bottom of the "Health Report" on page 142. 
Do you really need supporting arguments to get your guy to do some manscaping? So if you have tried repeatedly to get your guy to do a little edge and trim and he still won't do it... be sure to let him know that having less pubic hair means his crotch area won't trap so much sweat and debris. Although if there is a significant amount of debris down there, there may be some other issues. 
If you thought this was helpful, you might also appreciate the other health report related article Crazy Boob Rumors. 

Postscript: I noticed while writing this that I have never used the following words in a blog: sex, pubic, boob. Though Cosmo is always lurking in every nail salon, Massage Envy, and Spa, I probably never will again. But you never know.
