We spend our days working, living and playing with women, but we still don’t really know what they think and gossip about besides other chicks, The Bachelor and shoes. For your benefit, Made Man now attempts to get INSIDE THE FEMALE BRAIN by scanning the covers of the publications created just for them. Read, digest, and by all means, keep your lady out of the magazine aisle.

MORE: 21st CENTURY DIVORCE: KEYS TO KEEPING YOUR CASH
This dangerous game-changer runs from page 60 to page 64. We checked, just in case you see a copy of this mag on the coffee table and have only a precious few seconds to rip it out.
REDBOOK: GET IN A SEXY MOOD, INSTANTLY: Read this before you say, "Not tonight"
We appreciate the thought, Redbook, but couldn’t this story just have been combined with the one teased on the other side of Jenna Fischer that promises “Better Sleep for Life: The fix for what keeps you up at night”?
SHAPE: What Really Gets His Attention (It’s not what you think!)
Far be it from us to argue with the editors of Shape, but we’re gonna go out on a limb here and say, actually, ladies, it’s exactly what you think. And they’re right under cover girl Sofia Vergara’s nose.
