I had to laugh when I saw the most recent cover of Cosmopolitan magazine, sitting on the stand of my local Barnes & Noble, which had the words "The Sex Issue" stamped on its glossy cover.
The sex issue? It's a running joke, even among Cosmo's most loyal readers, that every issue of the magazine is the sex issue. If you look at the past examples of Cosmo covers, you'll see that the word "sex" is always the biggest, boldest word on the page, and that the articles about sex, from issue to issue, are so similar that the editors' efforts to make one sound more unique and outrageous than the other results in hilarious and absurd headlines ("THE SEX ARTICLE WE CAN'T DESCRIBE HERE!"). Usually, the articles are variations on two themes: (1) "The Fifty Greatest SEX Tips of ALL TIME" and (2) "SEX Moves That Will Drive Your Man Wild."
