You know how in 7-11s and Hudson Bookstores at the airport all the Playboys and Penthouses have that black plastic cover over them so the kids can’t see the boobies?

That may be the case soon for Cosmopolitan Magazine. A group has already gotten major chains such as Rite Aid and Food Lion to hide the sexy sexy sexiness inside the magazines from thine Puritan eyes. Via WWD:

On Wednesday, the Washington, D.C.-based group claimed to have won its first battle by getting Rite Aid and Delhaize America — owner of Hannaford stores and Food Lion — to agree to place Cosmopolitan “behind blinders” in their stores “due to the magazine’s inappropriate content and covers.”

As to why the organization was targeting Cosmo, which features similar cover stars in similar poses and fashions as other women’s magazines, [Dawn Hawkins, executive director of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation] said: “The content in Cosmopolitan Magazine is very different from the other women’s magazines in the checkout line. Many people think that it is just another magazine with beauty, fashion and health tips, but Cosmo is actually just another porn magazine glamorizing and legitimizing a dangerous lifestyle — pushing readers to try violent, group or anal sex. Articles often encourage readers to engage in one-night stands or random hookups with strangers. The magazine is pornographic and should be treated as such, meaning specifically that it should not be in plain view of children at the checkout line.”

Hell yea dangerous group anal sex.

But how bad is it? Well, let’s look at some of the covers. First up, Lauren Conrad.
