Perfect Fit: New Cosmo EIC Joanna Coles Likes Sex Because "It's Free"

We'd love to be a fly on the wall while the girls at Cosmo mag are drumming up their latest edition of "is this appropriate?" content. And now, thanks to New York Magazine, we can...kind of. You see, new EIC Joanna Coles took the reigns and invited a NYMag writer in to experience the awkward exchanges, forced laughter, and getting-to-know-you conversation of her first official meeting.
So, what did we learn from this insider view? Editor-in-chiefs — they're just like us! Yes, even Ms. Coles relies on reality TV for small talk, and she “realized that one of the reasons it’s going to be fun to edit a magazine about sex — sex is free. You don’t have to be rich to have good sex. Which, in these times, is good.”

We hear that! Along with more XXX-banter, look forward to increased pop-culture coverage from Cosmo in the Coles-led months to come. She's looking to increase the "urgency" of the glossy — what, 'cause good sex isn't a pressing need? Click through to read the entire article and tell us if you're looking forward to reading the magazine with the new head honcho in the exec chair. (NY Mag)
