Cheerleaders of all things fun, fearless, and sex, Cosmopolitan, has debuted a new accessories and intimates line created in partnership with on-the-fritz department store, JC Penney. It includes—predictably—lingerie, shoes, and bags rendered in tons of leopard print, a serious dose of snakeskin, and various other faux-animal products. Prices are super accessible, falling below $40 for shoes, under $60 for bags, $15 bras, $9 panties, and $12 pajamas. But as the magazine's new EIC reminds us, good sex is free.
