    I've never seen it happen tbh. I've also never seen women read Nuts or Zoo.

    My gf buys them all the time for Bath time so I read them sometimes.

    Mainly I just lol at the stupid fitness advice in them. I skip all the fashion crap.

    Of COURSE you can read it. Everyone has different personal interests, and they should be respected.

    I mean you can there's nothing stopping you but it would look a little strange because of the stereotypes. Honestly there isn't very interesting stuff in them anyway. :dontknow:

    Why would you want to read women's magazines anyway?

    Goodness knows why you'd want to read them (it's all a load of drivel - how to lose 50lbs in half a second, sex tips that'll drive your partner wild, aha :lol:), but I don't see why not. In fact, some of the magazines I have read, my boyfriend has gone on to read after me 'for the lulz'.

    As a woman, I find them incredibly dull and disinteresting.

    Doesn't mean you will though.

    1. There's amazing cloths that I would never see when walking down a stree.

    2. God like models.

    3. The fashion goodness.

    Well because when I buy Italian/French vogue in a store (can't order them). The cashier would every time have awkward freeze when I pay for it.

    What you are describing is like Cosmo. I read them in stores while I wait for ppl as they are hilarious as hell to read.

    I read Stylist and I've seen other men do the same on the tube.

    Of course, I skip the fashion sections and go straight to the columns.

    Honestly, don't worry about that. They always freeze whenever I purchase an 18-rated game or alcohol. It takes a good minute for them to scrutinize my ID, but I'm used to it now

    I love a good womens magazine, there's always a good selection in the staff room at work. Not the celebrity ones, but the sort with stories like "My boyfriend's cousin's ghost did a wee in my wedding bouquet and now I'm pregnant'. Fantastic.

    PRSOM, unfortunately!

    Those magazines are a guilty pleasure of mine, usually for the titles alone! In fact, the one sitting on the desk beside me has the blaring headline: 'KILLER BREAKFAST: MY CEREAL ALMOST KILLED ME'.

    Beware, there could be a cereal killer on the loose. :getmecoat:

    I flick through Cosmo at the hairdressers. It never occurred to me that this could ever be perceived as "socially unacceptable".

    By now I think that you should have realised that you are never going to get your money back... :colone:
