    This was in the September issue of Cosmo. It basically gives instructions on how to find out if a guy is big without him knowing you're doing it. It was only a one page article and was absolutely silly. Although I think they meant it to be serious and informative. I looked very hard for signs of joking or sarcasm but couldn't find any.

    It gives two ways to visually check. The first was to pretend you're concentrating and intently stare in various directions, one being at his crotch. Like you're perplexed and trying to remember something important. The other tells you to hold your cell phone at a low angle and pretend to read it while you're actually checking out his package.

    Then it gives two hands on tests. The first to stand next to him and pretend you're reaching into your purse and "accidentally" miss and grab him. The second to strike up a conversation then pretend to pick lint off his zipper.

    I'm curious to hear other people's thoughts on this.

    Could just ask, and then subtract three inches. Seems to be pretty accurate for 99% of men. :biggrin1:

    :lmao: That was my reaction as well. Wow, it's a shame they couldn't fill all their ad space and instead had to resort to publishing ridiculous junk like that. :tongue:

    Reminds me of the movie 'American Hot Wax'. The guy (I think a young Jay Leno) told a secretary he liked how her outfit was coordinated by saying, 'Your skirt is wool, your blouse is cotton, then these must be felt!' and grabbed a double handful of boobies. See also the movie 'The Wanderers' for a new urban sport called 'elbow titting'.

    Check out men's mags. There are plenty of sexy/sexy articles written about women's bodies - usually with photos - without a lawsuit.

    What's funny about this issue of Cosmo is we have a good story about it. First, we were on a road trip last week. We stopped at a gas station, choosing it only because it had a huge statue of a rooster outside. My girl picked up the Cosmo to have something to read. FWIW - the scoping zsize article was only one of many that included dick size. This is pretty typical of Cosmo now and as long as I can remember. (I remember reading on of my first "does size matter articles in Cosmo in the 70's).

    Anyway, between the omen of the huge rooster and the titillation of the articles, we engaged in a couple of pretty hot stops. One was a hellacious blow job at Big Bone Lick State Park (seriously, it's in Kentucky) and another quickie at a rest area in Tennessee.

    For us, Cosmo often serves a role as written foreplay.

    I'd forgotten about Big Bone Lick State Park! :biggrin1: I used to live near the Indiana/Kentucky border, and I picked up a brochure on state parks in Kentucky once and saw that name and cracked up over it.

    Ahh Cosmo. Destroying womens' esteem and spreading misinformation about what men care about when it comes to women since 1886.

    Or you could slap him five. Go up high, down low, then slow down and miss. Yeh, guys love that! (sarcasm)

    U could just ask him how big his cock is. Might save you all that trouble. Any big guy will answer the question.

    LOL!!! I love it! I can't stand Cosmo because it's FULL of gender stereotyping! :mad: I remember someone on here referring to it as a fashion magazine that is trying to pretend to be a serious magazine. The problem with that for me is that in trying to be serious, it plays to all the idiotic "studies" out there that promote gender stereotypes, and play with words to make you think men and women are soooooo different, when in actuality we are ALL different, as individuals.

    And as for fashion magazines... I do like them, actually! But I like my fashion magazines as pure fluff. :biggrin1: Just articles about fashion, beauty, and celebrities. (I like In Style, Lucky, and People Style Watch...)

    If some women take this article seriously and feel up some man's penis by picking lint off his zip or whatever, its not even going to give an 'accurate reading'.

    What if it's a little one that becomes a huge one when excited - thats a missed opportunity. Or horrors of horros one thats an impressive 5inches when slack but just stays the same dimensions only harder when excited.

    Those cosmo 'writers' really need to put some more thought into these things.
