Men's Health magazine, published by Rodale Press, is the best-selling men's magazine on U.S. newsstands.[1]

This is a list of magazines primarily marketed to men. The list has been split into subcategories according to the target audience of the magazines. This list includes both 'adult' pornographic magazines as well as more mainstream ones. Not included here are automobile and gadget magazines, many of which are primarily aimed towards men.

General male audience[edit]

These publications appeal to a broad male audience. Some skew toward men's fashion, others to health. Most are marketed to a particular age and income demographic. In the U.S., some are marketed mainly to a specific ethnic group, such as African Americans or Hispanics.
