    As the publisher says, it's cheerleader style, maybe a bit too cheerleader. Not that good (euphemism) articles, silly advices (mainly the "information on relationships and romance"), silly test/quiz articles, some fake "women’s health and well-being" recommendations. I would spend my money on a different glossy magazine.

    Popularized by the ladies of Sex & the City, the Cosmopolitan or "Cosmo" now comes in many renditions. I like it better than a Vodka Cranberry because it has less juice, which makes it less sweet overall. That said, it can pack a more powerful punch for that very reason. Think of it as a "girly" version of a martini.

    This is my go-to drink when I'm testing out a new bar. I love my Cosmopolitans. What's not to love? Firstly, it's low cal. Second, it tastes great and goes down smooth. Lastly, it's got a mean suckerpunch, and it's easy to get tipsy on two. I like mine heavy on the Triple Sec and just a splash of cranberry juice. Triple Sec is 40 proof. It is strong but tastes smooth. It's so deceiving!

    Cosmo is a fun read when you're in the mood for light reading and candy-coated bedroom tips. Except maybe a bit racy to read on the plane or other public places. I wonder how much of the content is regurgitated each month. If you've looked at their kama sutra guide and read one or two of their guides, you've pretty much seen it all. The rest is reinforcement through repetition. There are way better sex guides. But I give Cosmo credit for making sex talk so clean, girlie, sugary, and shareable.

    I always seem to purchase Cosmo once in awhile whenever I'm at a grocery store. They have interesting topics which makes reading enjoyable.

    I really don't think this one is qualified to be called a women's magazine, it's more for curious and love-crazy girls in the late teens. The only way I can qualify this to be an adults's magazine is the ability of the content to trigger some serious good laughs in both men and women, especially on the hot topics such as "how to lure a man of your dream"

    Not fair for a guy like me to rank a women's mag- but I used to love paging through this because my old girlfriend had a subscription.  I'd laugh out loud at the sex tips.  Two stars for that.  Too bad the relationship didn't last.

    Cosmo is by far the greatest. The good thing about them is they have a variety of stuff to do.

    I'll be isn't a bad tasting drink. Its pretty much a fancier version of the Cape Cod. However, its ties to Sex and the City and its origins in the gay community make it a drink to avoid for straight males. I have no problem with the ladies drinking it, and its a better choice of drink than the Apple Martini.

    Has become popular in the last few years and its not bad, but its nothing special. Mostly just a sweet pink martini.

    There is nothing new or exciting about this magazine. It's predictable,and the tips they were featured two volumes ago, just regurgitated. Whoever writes this crap ...has no clue about the male psyche. At least that's my opinion.

    As a man, the covers attracts you because they always have a beautiful women on front, usually with cleavage very visible. Other than that, the articles are usually sex-related (how to seduce your guy in 15- minutes; 20 tips on how to spice up your sex life; How to have your man lusting for you again, etc.) I guess we're just all animals wandering around looking for a dog in heat according to this mag. Look, I enjoy sex very much, but it can't control our lives (can it?).

    This magazine is way too much about sex. Its like reading a playboy but, for women. seriously, there is much more to being a women than having sex, thinking about sex, talking about sex, and reading about sex. i hate this mag. it needs to change its format already.

    Had my first four last night at a birthday party. I enjoyed every one of them and do not regret the minor headache that I now have as a souvenir. They are light and sweet, making them a good pre-dinner choice in mixed company. I drank them from martini glasses (standard?) and did not feel like a sissy. I said to the host, Hey, these things go down smoothly. He assured me that they would sneak up on me. They did but I can attest that I have been snuck up on by far worse. My suggestion: Find a designated driver and try a few!

    About two years ago I made fun of people who read this. Then I read it. Man I love this magazine. Too bad I was ignorant to it for so long, I missed so many issues , and sex hints, and make-up hints, and true confessions and, and, and. Why oh why did I wait so long to pick this up. Ok, ok it isnt thought provoking and there is alot of please your man and yourself stuff but not everything you read has to be enlighting.

    I give it 4 because it's hilarious. I bought the magazine by acident and not knowing any of it's content. What? It's true! I got it because they're was Mandy Moore on the cover. I like the horiscope mini book and the embarrasing moments.

    I give cosmo a five star rating because it taught me things about my body, sex, relationships and anything that my mom wasn't comfortable enough to tell me. if it wasn't for cosmo i wouldn't have had the courage to tell my past few boyfriends that i wouldn't sleep with them unless we used protection (*i'm still a virgin and am now single, but better off for it*) or most importantly until i was good and ready. I learned what questions to ask my doctor about things that were going on in my body. How to protect myself and what my rights as a woman are. That i deserve a man who will make me happy, however that doesnt mean that i am not capable of making myself happy.It's helped me accept that it will be alright for me to say yes to sex... when i'm ready and with protection of course. Most importantly it re-enforces that women may be different from men but they are equals. My mother would have never told me these things until... well now, but i've needed to know these things in the past. It... Read more

    I've been reading Cosmo for years. The past few years almost every article is about sex. Good God, how much can we read on the same topic? The articles are so similar in content month after month! Why don't they throw in an article about something else amid the smut? They have things in this magazine that are so far fetched I can't imagine anyone doing them. I love the advertising, it keeps me up on what's new.

    This magazine is very self-explanatory. It's not claiming to be intelligent or ambitious. It's goal is not to further the feminist movement. It's there to offer women happy fluff to read about like clothes and sex ideas. Don't women have enough to stress over these days? This magazine gives them an out. And please, it's fun and entertaining. It doesn't need to be deeper than that. I love it.

    I find the cover blurbs really freightening. The scheming, conspiring and conniving that women will do just to seduce us! Shocking, I tell you! Tried to read it once many years ago. Went right to the gynocology column, figuring this would be really good. It was, at least until I got to the "cottage cheese-like discharge..." Me and the magazine flew in opposite directions. Me and The Magazine still sleep in differnt rooms.

    According to this magazine, my main goals in life as a woman are to 1. Dress like a hooker. 2. have at least one screaming orgasm a day. 3. Drink trendy fru-fru drinks regardless of how horrible a hang-over they leave. 4. Give my man a hand-job under the table at the In-laws at least once a holiday, or until I dump him for the newest flavor of the week. 5. Cruise all the hip nightclubs in above-said hooker gear with other like-minded slut friends in pursuit of hot horny boy-toys who will worship me for the ho-bag I am. 6. Take the chosen boy-toy home, call in sick at my hopelessly hip office exec-ala- Demi-Moore-in-Disclosure-job and boink our brains out for two days. 7. Eat "sexy" foods like bratwurst and chocolate ice-cream while maintaining a size 4. 8. Throw lavish dinner parties with lots of "name-brand" wine and hunky artist dudes who will go home and boink my like-minded slut friends at the end of the night. 9. Spend 3 hours a day slathering almond-oil and $300 ... Read more

    Okay, I have mixed feelings about Cosmo. I remember the good ole days when my mom threatened to rip out all the "bad pages" and then give it back to me. Fortunately for me, that never happened, but I have caught on to a recurring pattern. I don't know if anyone else noticed this, but doesn't it seem like they use the same sex secrets every single issue, month after month? I mean, come on, how many positions can there possibly be? How many ways can you "wow" your man? I do like the Confession section, though, and I like their articles.

    My biggest complaint with this magazine, and most women's magazines, is the half-naked women on the cover. If men's magazines have women on the cover, shouldn't women's magazines have attractive men on the cover? Who is really the audience anyway? I would also love to see more intelligent reading material on the stands for all readers.

    I have had a subscription for about a year now and I plan on being a subscriber for a LONG time. I like this magazine a LOT better than Glamour, which I also have a subscription to. For one thing, Cosmo doesn't force breast cancer stories down your throat like Glamour does. The articles are also more entertaining. No magazine can show off the latest sex positions like Cosmo can. Of course, it's not ALL about sex. There's also articles about work, makeup, celebs,and men. Oh, and I can't forget Cosmo Confessions. I just can't get enough of those! One last note: my ultra-religious grandmother steals my Cosmos from me. Can you believe it?

    I find this magazine soooooo funny! It's a Jackie Collins novel masquerading as a self-help magazine; pure trash, purely stupid and about two inches from pure camp. Actually, I'd rather read Jackie Collins - at least she wasn't trying to convince anyone she was offering anything OTHER than rubbish.

    Cosmo is like a teen magazine but it's for women, so I feel it is almost the same as when I read such magazines as "Teen" when I was younger. It has the same section for embarassing stories, which has always been my favorite section, only the content is more mature.

    I love Cosmo because it is so hilarious. Although it is more appropriate for older women, the sexually explicit stories, comments, details, and advice is so funny. It certainly makes a girl bashful.

    It's okay because it's not dead boring. The Kama Sutra articles and sex advice is good and healthy for women. But it spends too much time telling women how to be more like the women men want.

    This is the traditional trashy women's magazine. Just about everything revolves around sex in some way, but it is done in good taste. The layout is good, and it is really interesting reading for a dating couple. It is a definite bridal shower/bachlorette party gift possibility.
