Why does Cosmo, a magazine aimed at women, have its' cover stories all about how to please a man in bed, and positions men enjoy, instead of sex tips aimed at well, women, the nominal audience of the magazine?

And why didn't I think of this until somebody else mentioned it? Because that's what patriarchy is, it's not just a matter of evil stomping boots, it's making things invisible too.

I thought it a little weird when I noticed it myself. The only magazine I knew of which was the opposite was Australian Womens Forum, and that went out of business.

I suspect that it's all part of the marketing to insecure women and using the covers to make women walking past them more insecure and therefore more likely to buy the magazine.

On the other hand, men's magazines have recently started similar tactics. Perhaps sexual insecurity is universal, particularly amongst the younger demographic such publications tend to target.
