Cosmopolitan – the true Macgasm app

Cosmopolitan’s “Sex Position of the Day” app first caught my attention through the tv commercial promoting it. Who doesn’t want a little Kama Sutra guide on their iPhone (or iPod Touch)?! This isn’t a free app – it costs $1.99 to download, but it is fun enough to be more than worth the small price.

When you open the app, you are faced with a random sex position. It just has an image of the position and the name. From there, you can tap the screen for detailed instructions of that position. It gives you a Carnal Challenge rating between 1 and 5 flames. Then, you can rate the position yourself after you’ve tried it. You are also given a list of related articles from Cosmopolitan magazine based on what position you have chosen, as well as options to subscribe to the mag, or purchase the Cosmo Kama Sutra book. When in the main screen you can shake the device to spin the wheel of positions and be given one at random.

What’s great?

It’s a fun app with the position roulette aspect – I can’t tell you how many times girlfriends and I have got carried away with shaking, then analyzing the positions. Pure entertainment. Also, the fact that it gives instructions, allows you to rate each position yourself, and gives recommendations of related articles.

What could be better?

One thing I expected to see out of this app, but didn’t, is a to-do list. As I’ve mentioned, the app gives you the ability to rate the positions yourself, but I’d like to see a spot where I can build my own personalized list of positions I want to try.

All that being said, I would recommend this app – even if purely for the entertainment aspect. Get your ‘gasm on with the Cosmopolitan Sex Position of the Day link app!
