6 types of men’s publications you’ll find on the Internet

From tame to taboo, a ton of men’s web sites, webzines and publications have popped up all over the web-o-sphere. But just because they fall under the umbrella of “men’s site” doesn’t mean that they’re for every guy. Let us help you figure out which ones are right for you.

6. Classy Men’s Sites

Be a man by owning the right products, going to the right places, spending time with the right people and having the right values.

Typical topics: Chic threads, fashionable digs, small batch foods and booze, dating, stylish gadgets.

Are they for you? Sure, if you have disposable income.

Examples: GQ, Esquire, Valet

5. Bro Sites

If you’re over 25 years-old, you might already out of their demo. But that doesn’t mean you won’t find entertaining tidbits there anyway.

Typical topics: Topics range from frats/sororities, alcohol and sex – to sex, frats/sororities and alcohol. Plus, stories, advice for millenials, funny lists and photos, bro humor and sexy girls.

Are they for you? Completely dependent on your age and maturity level.

Examples: Total Frat Move, Post Grad Problems

4. Stand-Up Guy Sites

These sites are concerned with the integrity of men and the way they interact with the world.

Typical topics: Staying connected to natural male emotion, exploring race, sex, women and dating, re-imagining gender roles, how to be a good father, values, social injustices, overcoming roadblocks in life.

Are they for you? If you’re comfortable enough with yourself to occupy the urinal next to another guy if necessary, then it’s a resounding “yes.”

Examples: The Good Men Project, Relevant

3. Babe Sites

Sites like these are often just offering thinly-veiled pseudo-porn in disguise. They will draw you in with big-boob-butt-jiggling link-bait and then proceed to offer no content to speak of aside from photos, videos and GIFs of hot women – and not much else.

Typical topics: Cleavage, bikinis, yoga pants, handbras, sideboob, underboob…you get the idea.

Are they for you? That depends on how long it’s been since your last fap.

Examples: Egotastic, Hollywood Tuna, Brosome

2. Advice Sites

‘How to’, ‘How Do I’ and ‘How Come’ Q&As are the content at hand here.

Typical topics: Sex and dating, marriage and family, body image and self-esteem, grilling and beer’ing, emotions and feels.

Are they for you? If you appreciate direction, guidance and answers, or just confirmation that you’re already awesome as is, then yes.

Examples: AskMen, The Art of Manliness, Men’s Health

1. Entertainment Sites

These sites offer entertainment to both men and women, covering breaking news and commentary, and dealing in pictures, videos and written content that offer an entertaining look at what it means to be a guy. Plus, coverage of a few hotties for good measure. Jack of all trades, master of none.

Typical topics: These sites cover every topic under the sun and offer insight into every aspect of a guy’s life – as long as it’s entertaining.

Are they for you? The only pre-requisite here is that you like to be entertained. You don’t even really need to be a guy.

Examples: GUYISM!, BroBible, Mandatory
