4 Ways to Keep Your Long-Distance Relationship Hot

You know how the saying goes: Absence makes the heart grow fonder. That’s great, but fondness isn’t all it takes to keep the flame alive between you and your long-distance partner. Sex is important, too, which can obviously be hard to come by when you two don’t live in the same city, or even the same state.

But your sex life is not all-or-nothing. In other words, just because you aren’t getting busy on a regular basis, that shouldn’t stop you from keeping things hot while you’re apart. Try out these long-distance relationship ideas that will keep things ridiculously hot, no matter how many miles separate you.

It’s great to hear your girlfriend's voice, but seeing her is even better. That might seem like a huge duh, but it’s often so much easier to chat whenever one of you has the time, like while you're in line at the grocery store or driving to work. Not the sexiest of environments. Even though video calls might require more scheduling, they’re worth it.

4 Things Every Woman Wants to Hear In a Relationship

Whether you've been with your partner for a couple months or many years, sometimes it's the tiniest gestures that make the biggest impact. Sure, planning elaborate dates can be great, but at the end of the day, a seemingly simple comment can mean everything.

To learn just what to say to make your partner feel adored, we chatted with top therapists for specific statements that will help you talk your way to tighter bonds.

Here's exactly what to say if you want to strengthen your connection with your partner. (And be sure to have some Lelo Hex condoms from the Men's Health store on hand in case you decide to take it to the next level.)

How to Watch Porn Without Getting Hacked

Since the earliest days of the internet, sketchy porn sites and viruses have gone hand in hand. But a new report by the cybersecurity firm Kaspersky Lab shows that hackers are using a cheeky new way of spreading malware. In short, they're using porn as a trap, in the hopes that horny web-browsers will stumble into a pit of viruses with one click.

Kaspersky's investigation shows that the risks are different depending on how you're browsing for porn. Macs don't get as many viruses as PCs, but users are still vulnerable to phishing and other exploits. Android phones are susceptible to sketchy applications, and PCs are always at risk of getting malware. Users on pretty much every device are in danger, but the risks are not unavoidable. To help you browse in peace and safety, here's what to watch out for.

7 Horrifying Consequences of Taking Steroids

If you’re a regular lifter, the idea of juicing has probably crossed your mind. After all, you've been putting in the work, so why not reap the rewards?

In fact, most steroid users are just regular guys who just want to bulk up, according to findings published in Endocrine Reviews. Specific numbers are hard to come by, though estimates suggest that up to 20 percent of men who do recreational strength training have taken anabolic steroids at some point in their lifting history.

“The number one reason I see people choose to use anabolic steroids is in hopes of more rapid muscle gains from their workout program,” says Vijay Jotwani, M.D., primary care sports medicine physician at Houston Methodist Hospital. And the temptation can be big, especially if you see other guys at the gym taking them with huge results.

This Year's Flu Shot Is Just 36% Effective

It goes without saying that the flu has hit the United States hard this year, and the worst weeks may be yet to come.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention just released a statement that this season's flu shot is 36 percent effective — better than doctors anticipated, but still not a great number.

This is shaping up to be the worst influenza season in recent years, and it might still get worse before it gets better, according to the CDC. The flu season frequently extends into May, and it’s only the middle of February.

7 Ways to Give Her an Orgasm She'll Never Forget

Scientists gave us the data. Sex therapists gave us the how-to. The results: Science- backed ways you can be her orgasm donor.

Replace “inhibitors” (chores, kids) with “excitors”—early photos of you two, music, a scented candle, says sex therapist Ian Kerner, Ph.D. Tell her how great she looks in candlelight. Nicole Prause, Ph.D., found that body-negative thoughts curbed women’s arousal while they watched porn.


Most guys looking to gain love a juicy piece of chicken breast, and with good reason. Your body needs protein to build and maintain lean muscle. Plus, the essential macronutrient helps keep you full, regulate your hormones, and build strong bones.

Loading up on foods like fish, chicken, turkey, beef, eggs, and milk is the most efficient way to get enough protein, and research suggests you ideally want to aim for 30 grams per meal. Meat and dairy often contain a much higher amount of protein per serving compared to plant-based protein, explains Lisa Moskovitz, R.D., a nutritionist and certified personal trainer, so you don’t normally need to eat as much to reach your daily needs.


Slept through this morning’s weights session? Go to your room now and think about what you’ve done. No really, we mean it: new research shows that simply visualising a past workout will make you stronger.

While the interplay between mind and muscle is well established, scientists at Germany’s University of Giessen claim you can replace some of your sweat sessions with imaginary ones, “without any considerable reduction of strength gains.”
