Brown Bag "Pornographic" Cosmopolitan Says Hearst Heiress

Victoria Hearst says her family's Cosmopolitan magazine 'pornographic,' joins campaign to get it brown bagged

And don't sell it to minors!:
Pick up the latest issue, with teen idol and star of ABC Family’s “Pretty Little Liars” Lucy Hale on the cover, and you’ll see everything from “25 Sex Moves He Secretly Wishes You’d Try” to “The Naughty Orgasm Trick Couples Love.” An earlier edition, with Ashley Greene as cover girl, offers readers “52 Sex Tips” and information about what to do “when your vagina acts weird after sex.”
Hearst says Cosmo targets teens with the graphics, color choices, sland and young models as cover stars. Publishers who go after youngsters deserve the biblical millstone and a very deep lake. I've been complaining to managers, putting that magazine behind others on the rack or turning it backwards for years (when I wasn't sticking it under bags of dogfood). Wrapping it up in brown paper isn't as good as the publishers wrapping it up for good, but it's better than nothing. Complain to a store manager this week about Cosmo and ask for it to be wrapped!
