    Default "60 Sex Tips" My name may not be on it, but that's mine.

    So I checked out my new article in Cosmo today. It says "By Jessica Knoll," but it's the one I did. They added a bunch of stuff, so I guess the editor put her name on it. Oh well.

    "60 Sex Tips," on page 74. Check it out while you're waiting in line.Name:  Jan 2011 Cosmo.jpg

    You don't even get a tagline?

    Well I guess if she gave you things to research for the story then in a way you were assisting her. But yeah too bad she couldn't say "& Matt."

    Cosmo is a mag known for talking about sex. Would you say the average reader is new to sex and needs lots of tips and advice or would you say the reader is experienced and just likes to stay up to date on things?

    Congratulations, but that is bs they didn't credit you.

    I wonder if saying a girl wrote the article has to do with the magazine's female demographic? Sex tips are not so intimidating, when they're coming from a lady, and from a guy's perspective, getting tips from a chick named Jessica sounds more exciting than a guy named Mathew.

    Nope, no tagline. Apparently it was supposed to be a dual-credit thing, but my name was omitted. But, you know, they paid me today so I can't complain too much. Just part of the business, and in the long run not something I'm really gonna get bent out of shape over.

    To answer Christy's question, I think it's a lot of both. There's a lot of younger, less-experienced girls who read it to get ideas. But I know a lot of girls with a lot of experience who read it, generally just to be like "Oh, yeah, did that one."

    I'd rather read it from a boys POV than a girls. I mean, the boy knows what works, not a girl.

    I think the idea was for guys to tell about moves girls had done that had work. Better to hear it from some stranger in a magazine than your current guy saying "Hey, this one time my ex did this AWESOME thing..."

    Did any of our comments make it pass the editors?

    I don't think anyone from 411 made it. But there were plenty that I'd gotten from other people.

    Ah shoot! I saw that in the store, but couldn't remember if that was the one you did, or not. Of course, without your tagline, I couldn't check. Be sure to tell Cosmo they lost a sale because your name wasn't in there.
