Why is it that some people feel the need to say something before, during, or after sex? What is there really to discuss? The weather? Health-care reform? That odd rash? Of course, the only real things to comment on are the actions at hand. Cosmo's guy buddies over at AskMen.com reveal what they never want to hear you say in the sack.
Here, the 5 things a guy doesn't want to hear a woman say in bed...
1. What you should never say: "My ex used to... "
What he's saying to himself: Nothing is a bigger mood-kill for a guy than hearing about a woman's ex before, after, and especially during the act of humping and bumping. Sure, your ex might have done a couple of fantastic feats to help you achieve complete sextacy, but he also stole your debit card and buttered your best friend's muffin while you were at work. Remember this.

If it's hard to picture Ellen Page as a Texas beauty queen, that's just what Drew Barrymore was thinking when she cast her as the star of this roller-derby film. In her search to find like-minded friends, the high school misfit secretly joins a local skate squad and finds her inner strength along the way.

I Think They're Hot!
By Bethany Heitman
I was sooo not one of those pre-teens who hung posters of hot guys on my wall. Seriously, there wasn't a JTT or Luke Perry photo in sight. But a few weeks ago I walked by a store that had a life-sized cardboard cut out of Edward Cullen on display. For the first time in my life, I contemplated shoplifting. See, I honestly can't come up with anything sexier than vampires. Think about it, they're the ultimate bad boys. And what girl can resist a guy that's a little naughty?
The sexiest thing about Edward (from Twilight) or Bill (from True Blood) is that they're both mysterious, dark, and brooding. After all, they have to keep to themselves because they can't let everyone know their secret - which means they don't have frat boy friends constantly around. When they choose toRead More »from Vampires: Hot or Not?
Long before he was a politician, the Republican candidate vying for Ted Kennedy's U.S. Senate seat posed nude for the centerfold of Cosmo. Scott Brown won our "America's Sexiest Man" contest and appeared in the June 1982 issue. In those days he was a 22-year-old law student at Boston College who was cramming for finals just days before stripping down for our photographer.Read More »from Guess Which Senator Was a Cosmo Centerfold?
"Here at Cosmo we've had bachelors go on to be actors, models, and reality show stars, so we're thrilled that one has gone on to become a politician," says Kate White, Cosmo's editor in chief. Obviously we know how to pick 'em. This particular bachelor has always had political ambitions and even admitted to being "a bit of a patriot" when we interviewed him.
Compared to some men in the GOP, this politician looks pretty damn good for his age. We bet he still has an amazing body underneath his suit and tie. There have been plenty of pics of our president running around without his shirt, so now that a precedent has

Cosmo got to thinking about the rudest things that people do and compiled a list of 25 different behaviors that completely irk you. From asking someone why she's still single to talking too loudly on a cell phone, more than 2,500 Cosmo girls responded to the list of rude actions and rated each behavior on a scale of 1 through 10 (with 10 being the rudest).
Here, we reveal the top five rudest things that people do. Are you guilty of any of these? And what are your pet peeves?
5. Letting your hyper kids run all over the place at a restaurant, grocery store, etc

5. In the woods
49 percent of women have had sex here!
Wanna try? Your two biggest risks are bugs and poison ivy. To fend off bugs, spray yourself with insect repellent beforehand…just not on your neck, breasts, or anywhere else your man may kiss or lick. As for poison ivy, remember: If there are leaves of three, let it be.
4. In the pool or a body of water
54 percent of women have had sex here! Wanna try? Ironically, water sex can actually dry up your natural lubrication. Use a silicone-based lube (which is waterproof) and then try out Cosmo's Aqua Kama Sutra positions, like Tawdry Tube.
3. In your childhood bedroom
65 percent of women have had sex here! Wanna try? If your parents are in the next room, keep quiet with a sex position that is still ultra-pleasurable but won't shake the headboards. Try Soft Rock or Wow-Him
There were a lot of good things about Sunday night's MTV Video Music Awards: Madonna's speech, the tribute to Michael Jackson, and Pink's amazing trapeze/acrobatic performance, just to name a few. But the sour moment of the mega-show was definitely when Kanye West ran up on stage and interrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech for Best Female Video.
"Yo Taylor," Kanye said, "I'm happy for you...but I'm sorry, Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all-time!"
Taylor just stood there shocked, Beyoncé shook her head in confusion, and the crowd booed. They continued to boo throughout the show every time Kanye's "Love Lockdown" was announced as a nominee. An MTV insider told Cosmo that Kanye's interruption was not staged and that Taylor was a wreck backstage for the rest of the show. Pink was reportedly ready to defend Taylor's honor, but was talked out of bad-mouthing Kanye on-air during her performance. Instead, Beyoncé helped fix the mess when she received her award for Best VideoRead More »from How Big of a Jerk Do You Think Kanye Is?

As bad ass as Serena Williams is, she's kind of the poster child for how not to handle stress on the job. Yesterday she mouthed off to a judge at the U.S. Open when a call didn't go her way, and it cost her the match.
We've all been known to drop the F-bomb every once in awhile, but luckily for us these slip-ups aren't usually filmed on national television- and we don't have to pay $10,000 for having a potty mouth. Here's how to deal when you screw up royally at work.
In a high-speed super-connected work world, it's easier than ever to mess up.
People have been blowing it on the job forever. But what makes today's mistakes so terrifying is how quickly they can morph into a major snafu. Think: the careless employee who in a mere second accidentally cc's a personal e-mail about her latest hookup to hundreds of coworkers. Or consider the assistant who forgets to let her boss know that a crucial video conference was rescheduled, causing her department to lose out on a
1) Wear Skinny Head to Toe: Ditch the billowy tops and instead streamline your silhouette. Try tapered pants and a narrow structured jacket that falls at the hip. Then finish the long, lean look with sky-high heels-an oxford style is a sophisticated pick-and long strands of necklaces.
2) Dress Up Casual: Glamorize a cotton dress or a tank-and-jeans combo by throwing on a jeweled necklace and patent-leather heels. There are tons of other ways to fancy up a laid-back ensemble: Wear blinged-out shades, carry a cocktail-party clutch, or add a sparkly brooch up top.
3) Combine Multiple Textures: Basic black can have a blah rep sometimes. To make the monochrome look a bit more interesting this season, blend fabrics. Mis and match sequins, leather, and lace (even on shoes!). Velvet paired with chiffon is also a romantic-feeling, fun twist.
4) Edgy Accessories Modernize: Hardware belts update a classic floral (or vintage!) dress. Try a black belt with studs to cinchRead More »from 5 New Fashion Rules to Follow
