Although Cosmopolitan magazine’s target audience is women, you wouldn’t necessarily know that by looking at their covers. The models featured on the covers of Cosmopolitan through the years are typically scantily clad in tight dresses, short skirts, lots of cleavage…you get the picture.
In addition, the magazine is rife with risque articles with titles like “7 Ways to Blow his Mind in Bed” and “50 Kinky Sex Moves: Men Vote on Their Favorite.” Every single issue has article after article dealing with sexual intercourse even featuring pictures of a man and woman hot and heavy in bed.
