Girl Magazines Just as Sex-Laden as Boy Magazines
The writer of this article describes how women's magazines are now just as raunchy and sex filled as men's magazine such as Maxim. Filled with sex trick articles and the like. It's really no surprise. My reasoning as to why magazines are so sex-filled is really quite simple. We live in a society, open as it is in many respects, that shuns most anything that has to do with sex.
Parents don't talk to their kids about it. Movies don't show it...and if they do, it is usually the quick cut to the morning after. TV sitcoms address it like it is something dirty. It's taboo to openly talk about sex in America. But sex is sex. It will always be here and there is nothing anyone can do about it. Not talking about it doesn't make it go away. In fact, it just makes it all the more alluring to read about. Hence, the sex filled magazine covers we see on the news stand every day.
