Teen boys as part of Cosmopolitan readership?????

My household subscribed to Cosmopolitan for years up to a year ago when it wasn't renewed.

My then 12 y/o son asked where is it?  He had been reading it.  He liked the articles on embarrassing moments in sex, how-to for woman getting orgasms, boy-friends from hell....

Hmmmm....in-depth sex education and relationship education.

Why not?  We renewed.

Jason brings articles to me for discussion.  I have a 13 y/o sex-starved horn-dog but a good one.  I've chosen to indulge him on some requests but must deny him on others....and for those he deserves and receives a explanation.

This I offer as a possibility for some household and some teen boys.......

 My Ds is 20. IMO there were and are much better resources and tools out there when discussing sex with our kids. My DD is 15, I wouldn't use Cosmo articles and editors opinions as a moral barometer for a teen either.

 Not necessarily something I would do, but if it's working well for your family, go for it.

Thanx.

I have provided him with sex-ed books -- both the girl and boy editions--that I read through carefully and enter occassional annotations.

He and I are quite open with each other -- like he asked how I felt about a period every month,  I answered that I had considered medication to stop them but then I feared there might be bad side effects--so how does he like getting boners at embarrassing times?  You live with it, right?  He asked if there is medication to stp boners--sure is; it would also stop the awful horniness and it would grow breasts--but I'll go shopping with you for a bra.
