Hearst sexes up the Android

Hearst Magazines unveiled its first Android app, and it's gone for sex rather than your grandmother's gardening tips from Good Housekeeping.

Hearst Magazines unveiled its first Android app, and it's gone for sex rather than your grandmother's gardening tips from Good Housekeeping. The company is making a bold entrance into the market with none other than Cosmo's Sex Position of the Day app, based on the brand's book, The Cosmo Kama Sutra. The app will feature 17 positions from Cosmo's Red Hot Sex Guide and 25 from Cosmo's Aqua Sutra guide. 

It follows the brand's success with a similar iPhone app earlier this year. Since launch, the application has been downloaded more than 80,000 times, with the average user spending nearly 10 minutes per session with the content.

Looks like the rumor is true - sex sells. What's next, the iPad? 3-D? For the sake of the unintended peripheral viewers on the subway, I hope not.
