It may be banned soon!

Keyword: Cosmopolitan, magazine, banned


This week Cosmopolitan released their February issue with 17 year old Dakota Fanning on the cover.  Along side of her were the capations “His Bes Sex Ever”, “Too Naughty To Stay Here: But You Have To Try This Sex Trick.”  Is this becoming just a little too raunchy? Model Nicole Weider seems to think so!  She wants to have the magazine banned from grocery stores and newsstands.

“As a former reader of the magazine, I happened to pick up an issue and was reading it and was completely shocked at how pornographic and explicit the content had become. I immediately thought of my young teenage brothers and it horrified me to think that they and their friends could be reading this material, and the damage it would do to them if they did” said Weider.

She doesn’t exactly want the magazine to change their tune, but she has started a petition to have the magazine sold in a non-transparent wrapper.  She also wants it to be banned from being sold to anyone under the age of 18. As of now she has about 11,000 signatures and has received tons of emails and comments on her website for girls of all ages!

Other people are not so supportive saying that it is 2012.

I don’t care what year it is…I think I agree with Weider.  It’s totally inappropriate for 11 year old to be able to pick up a copy of Cosmo and read how to give their boyfriend the best sex of his life in explicit detail. Not sure I feel it needs to be hidden in a non-transparent cover as I know the importance of marketing.  People won’t buy it as much if they can’t see it.  But maybe ID should be required when purchasing such magazines.  Young girls should stick to “Teen Magazine”  I grew up on that…brings back memories :)
