Announcement reads "At Last! A new kind of magazine for today's new kind of woman" plus "A look at the 'Cosmo' hype." The cover illustration shows a woman ripping a copy of COSMOPOLITAN in half.
Cover articles: "The Gloria Steinem C.I.A. Connection," "Erica Jong's New Love Poems," "Breast Surgery: The Five Most Important Pages You'll Ever Read," "Looking for Mister Right," "The Status Game: Tear it Out and Play to Win," and "As the World Yearns: America's First Magazine Soap Opera" (which includes romanticized partial nudity, male and female). There is also an erotic and inter-racial cartoon (set in Africa) called "Panthea."

Also features a few b/w celebrity columns, and an article called "A Description of Female Orgasm."

Publisher: Stephan L. Saunders. Apparently intended to offer a more "natural" approach to photographing female subjects than the COSMO alternative.
