When I was what is now called a 'tween' I started reading Cosmopolitan. And I was fascinated by all kinds of things a tween should not be fascinated with. But somehow I felt my future as a fascinating and alluring creature, a femme fatale, irresistible to any man, was to found in the pages of Cosmo.
I won't tell you what kind of femme fatale I may have become from reading Cosmo or how the quest to find the legendary G Spot went - I am a married woman now after all - but Helen Gurley Brown made it all seem possible. A great job, a great dinner and great sex.
Thank you HGB!! I will miss seeing you on 57th Street. You will be a Cosmo Girl Forever!
