Pornography in Latest Cosmo Magazine Issue! Moms Beware!

How bad can Cosmo magazine be for our girls? Try X-rated! The current January issue of Cosmo magazine shows porn and lists top sex toys for our kids to buy!

While walking through the exhibit hall this week at the National Religious Broadcasting conference in Orlando, Florida, the Cosmo Hurts Kids booth caught my attention immediately. I am fully aware that Cosmo has pushed the envelope over the past few years. It went from somewhat good advice for teens to currently featuring barely clothed girls on the cover. However, anger quickly arose when I was shown the recent issue of Cosmo magazine at this booth run by three hard-working women advocates who’s mission is to put a stop to the madness!

Cosmo magazine has a huge spread throughout it’s January issue with a young woman’s hand literally DOWN inside a young man’s pants with his zipper wide open. You read this correctly! The short article next to the graphic photo tells it’s readers (mostly young girls) on how they should kiss their partner for at least 20 minutes which will increase her desire. It goes on to tell girls to nibble on his zipper of his pants and I can’t even go on with describing what else it tells it’s readers to do. The last line ends with the statement, “By the time the buzzer goes off you’ll both be wild with lust!” Sex toys are advertised at the end of the article along with the steps you need to take to get you to orgasm. This is pornography and according to laws being broken in each state, this is illegal and Cosmo should be sued.

I talked with Dianne Rogers today and the interview is below. She discusses how Cosmo magazine has gone downhill fast with it’s content and what we as parents can do to stop this illegal porn from getting on store shelves.

What can we do as counter culture moms?

Dianne said the way we can get involved is to GOOGLE your STATE and follow it with Material Harmful to Minors Law! Ex: Missouri material harmful to minors law. See what pops up, do a quick read of the laws and then go to local officials and let them know what Cosmo is currently doing. Kids are getting access to this and we must put a stop to it. If not, we will have magazines with completely naked people on the covers where our 2 year olds can easily see it. Enough is enough!

THIS WEEK’S CHALLENGE: Get involved in checking out your state laws and contact local officials. Cosmo Magazine is clearly breaking the law and it’s coming down to us moms needing to speak up for our children’s sake! If we do nothing – our children will be paying a huge price. If we do something – we will show companies that they will not be able to get away with doing illegal activities! Let’s put our faith to ACTION this week!

    I do not mean to downplay the seriousness of this at all — honestly, I’m horrified . . . however, when did we ever think that “Cosmopolitan” was an option for teens to read? As long as I can remember (I’m 43), it has been just what you’re describing (based on what’s advertised on the cover) — a semi-pornographic magazine, claiming that it can make you get to orgasm faster, give him better sex, etc. I certainly hope no one is actually letting their teenage girls read this. It’s consistently obvious porn, with or without me having to open the magazine to look at the offensive pictures. And although yes, I’d rather have it off the shelves, if we have to pass it in the grocery store, I view it as an opportunity to chat with my girls about how sad it is that some people don’t listen to God, who created them, when He gives them guidelines for their own good and protection — just like when we see someone smoking, it is an opportunity to talk about how sad it is that that person is choosing to hurt the insides of his/her body.

    Don’t misunderstand me — I’m not trying to undermine this effort to get this off the shelves . . . but even if Cosmo “cleans up its act,” I would certainly hope that no mom out there would be fooled into thinking that this is ever going to be an appropriate magazine for her teen to read.

      I couldn’t agree more. This is a magazine that shouldn’t be seen by anyone 🙂 It’s a major warning for parents to watch what their kids are getting their hands on and one point made in the video is that it SHOULD BE 5 feet high off the floor on the shelf so little kids can’t pick up and flip through at the very least. it’s the law, but stores are NOT following the law and kids teens, etc are grabbing and reading. other point is that we have parents who are getting the magazine and kids see it in their own homes. we need the law to be followed for the safety of ALL kids! great talking points indeed, but you’re one of the FEW parents who have conversations with their kids! I’m trying to help warn all moms that this illegal action needs to be stopped. It’s not sold as porn, but it IS porn! keep fighting the good fight!
