Who are the hottest guys in Hollywood? I've got them right here (at least according to me).
1. Brad Pitt
He's aged extremely well over the years. If I were Angelina Jolie I'd never stop making babies.
2. Leonardo DiCaprio
My favorite since I was a teen. He's still crazy hot and could act the pants off anyone (sexual innuendo most definitely intended). Give the sexy man an Oscar already.
3. Theo James
My new favorite. After looking through his pictures, I do believe I may be pregnant.
4. Johnny Depp
This guy continues to grow better looking with age, defying physics. Not only that but he can take on any personality with charm and ease.
5. Robert Downey Jr.
Sure he's got attitude and can be a bit quirky IRL, but DAMN.
6. Paul Walker
As his movies are still being released, he had to appear on this list. Such a tragedy that he died so young.
7. Jeffrey Dean Morgan
While he was a scene-stealer in Grey's Anatomy and Supernatural, he isn't in as many movies as I'd like.
8. Mark Wahlberg
I wouldn't be doing this list justice if he didn't make the list. And yes this is an old picture, although he still looks amazing and probably takes the award for "aged best".
9. Kellan Lutz
While I have yet to decide if he can act or not, do we really care?
10. Dwayne Johnson
I usually don't like my men this beefy, but I'd do anything for The Rock. No, I mean literally.
11. Matthew McConaughey
He's been a favorite over the years, but I'm really hoping he'll start putting his weight back on because I miss this gorgeous face!
12. Channing Tatum
I mean did you SEE Magic Mike and what that man can do with his body?
13. Bradley Cooper
Those eyes. That voice. Ay caramba.
14. Ryan Gosling
Because we've all pictured him leaning in close, pressing his hand to your lower back and whispering, "Hey girl."
15. Colin Ferrel
I never really saw him as that hot until I saw the remake of Fright Night and decided I wouldn't be opposed to having Jerry the vampire as my neighbor.
16. Woody Harrelson
I mean it all depends on what movie he's in, but the guy is one sexy mo-fo. Maybe it's just because he reminds me of my husband.
17. Justin Timberlake
A true triple threat, and not too painful to look at either. I like my men funny.
18. Will Smith
Funny and hot, I'll watch any of his movies without even knowing the premise first.
19. Daniel Craig
Thanks to the Bond movies for bringing us more of this guy.
20. Chris Hemsworth
The sole reason I broke down and watched Thor. Not even sure I could tell you the plot, but it was visually stimulating.
I've decided this is one of my favorite perks of being an author of romance. Who wouldn't want to spend their day thinking about attractive people and scrolling through hundreds of tantalizing pictures?
Did your favorites make the list? Let's hear it in the comments below!

Ladies, I know the routine. After a long day of chasing kids, meeting deadlines, keeping the house from falling into a biochemical hazard, you so just want to sink into bed with a book and get a good night's sleep before jumping back on the hamster wheel in the morning. Too often we're quick to shut our significant others down who seem to have an insatiable need for sex, no matter what kind of day they had or how insanely exhausted you appear in your boring pajamas.
HOWEVER, according to Web MD, there are ten really good reasons we should be caving it.
1. Helps Keep Your Immune System Humming
Turns out people who are sexually active take less sick days. Maybe this is why rock stars so rarely have to cancel concerts.
2. Boosts Your Libido
They say having sex on a regular basis helps with natural lubrication, blood flow, and elasticity, which make for better sex in general. This one sounds suspiciously like something a man made up, but okay.
3. Improves Women's Bladder Control
A strong pelvic floor is important for avoiding incontinence, something that will affect about 30% of women at some point in their lives. Good sex is like a workout for your pelvic floor muscles. When you have an orgasm, it causes contractions in those muscles, which strengthens them.
Sounds much easier than remembering to do those annoying kegels, right?
4. Lowers Your Blood Pressure
As wives, mothers, and girlfriends, who doesn't have high blood pressure?
Sex uses about five calories per minute, four more calories than watching TV. It gives you a one-two punch: It bumps up your heart rate and uses various muscles.
It may not be as productive as running, but you don't have to get dressed and do you hair to go to the gym!
6. Lowers Heart Attack Risk
During one study, men who had sex at least twice a week were half as likely to die of heart disease as men who had sex rarely.
Yeah, okay. Healthy guys make for better partners.
7. Lessens Pain
“Orgasm can block pain,” says Barry R. Komisaruk, PhD, a distinguished service professor at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey. It releases a hormone that helps raise your pain threshold.
Stimulation without orgasm can also do the trick. “We’ve found that vaginal stimulation can block chronic back and leg pain, and many women have told us that genital self-stimulation can reduce menstrual cramps, arthritic pain, and in some cases even headache,” Komisaruk says.
8. May Make Prostate Cancer Less Likely
Men who ejaculated frequently (at least 21 times a month) were less likely to get prostate cancer during one study, which was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
Again, we all love a healthy man.
9. Improves Sleep
“After orgasm, the hormone prolactin is released, which is responsible for the feelings of relaxation and sleepiness" after sex, says Sheenie Ambardar, MD. She is a psychiatrist in West Hollywood, Calif.
Okay, I call bullshit on this one, although it does have the effect of a sleeping pill for my husband.
10. Eases Stress
Being close to your partner can soothe stress and anxiety. Ambardar says touching and hugging can release your body's natural “feel-good hormone.” Sexual arousal releases a brain chemical that revs up your brain’s pleasure and reward system.
If this list hasn't convinced you that having more sex is beneficial, trying looking at pictures of hot guys on Pinterest, or watch a movie featuring someone delectable like The Rock or Theo James. Then come read this list again. Eventually you'll come around.
