    ETA I cannot find what she died of, I will assume old age. If anyone can find info on that can they please post it here? TIA

    RIP, HGB.

    I haven't read Cosmo since the late 90s/ early 00s when it was 50 Sex Tricks You Need to Know to Please Your Man and 25 Things You're Doing Wrong in Bed That's Causing Him to Cheat on You. I assume it's probably still the same now?

    I've fallen behind in my celeb news and I just heard about this tonight. Another mover and shaker gone. RIP, Ms. Brown.

    Ha, even though I haven't bought one in years, I remember Cosmo as a must-read back in my college years and how all our boyfriends secretly wanted to read it too. And how my mother was oh so appalled that I had graduated from the teen mags to the scandalous sex-tip-related COSMO! *gasp*

    RIP, Ms. Gurley-Brown.

    It's more or less the same but after so many years many of the sex tips are beyond ridiculous. Also with some of the tips the guy will probably punch them in the face to make them stop:

    some gems:

    "Chew a small piece of mango... then take him in your mouth. You can use whatever fruit you have, just don't try anything too acidic, as it can burn him."

    “As you’re going down on him, shake your head from side to side, letting your tongue follow the same pattern on the extra sensitive underside of his penis.”

    "Receive a butterfly kiss... of your breasts. To do: he bats his eyelids against the supersensitive underside of your breasts."

    "Dip your breasts in edible body paint, and use them to 'sponge paint' his entire body. Then lick it off."

    "Draw an attention-grabbing circle around your nipples using rhinestones and body glue for a special night in."

    "Keep a spray bottle filled with ice water next to the bed, and give each other a strategic spritz to extend the encounter... Aim for the nerve-packed, thin-skinned areas on each other's body, such as the nipples."

    "Mix one tablespoon of saliva (the kind deep in your throat works best — its viscosity makes it a good substitute for lube) with one tablespoon of water to stretch the spit."

    "As you're eating dinner together, say something X-rated like, 'See how I'm devouring this piece of meat? That's how I'm going to devour you.'"

    "Give him a beer facial — the combination of the egg white and the yeast in the hops hydrates and improves skin elasticity... but you can just tell him that your lips can't resist his delicious, beer-flavored face."

    I bet Jennifer Love H. does this.

    Oh I used to love reading Cosmo in my late teens and twenties. I guess I outgrew it when I realized I wasn't going to be living in a Manhattan penthouse having it all. But HGB made the magazine what is was and I respect what she accomplished big time.
    She was so tiny and super thin. I always wondered if she had an E.D.

    Does it also advise you what to do when your other half starts rolling about the bed and turning purple in the face when they accidentally inhale and start choking on a rhinestone?

    Is that like when Paul Newman said, "Why go out for a hamburger when you can have a steak at home?"
