(Redirected to List of men's magazines article)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

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' 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

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.


Gay male audience
