    Having looked at both, I've got to say...I want overly impressed with Cosmo...and was expecting FHM to be MUCH WORSE...

    So what are you asking? Do we buy them or do we think the magazine is stereotypical about gender?

    I do buy Cosmo very occasionally, and have looked through FHM a couple of times but never bought it. And yes, I'd say they are both a bit stereotypical, but I would guess that is because that is what their stereotypical target market would be looking for...

    Both are harmless. Only people who don't like sex (or are otherwise sexually inadequate) dislike them. I think because of supply and demand, both magazines sell since we're a sexualised society. People should just get over them, and live their own lives.
