High-profile names that have been published in the magazine include top models Rosie Huntington-Whiteley,Anne Vyalitsyna, Miranda Kerr, Candice Swanepoel, Irina Shayk, and Emily Ratajkowski.
The magazine began publication in 1985 in the UK under the name For Him Magazine [ citation needed ]and changed its title to FHM in May 1992, although the full For Him Magazine continued to be printed on the spine of each issue. The first women to appear on the cover was Gina Davies in February 1993. The trend towards female cover stars grew over the following year, with both Naomi Campbell and Andie Macdowell appearing.
Circulation expanded to newsagents as a quarterly by the spring of 1987 and then monthly in 1994. EMAP Consumer Media bought the magazine in 1994 and it subsequently went on to dominate the UK men's market and began to expand internationally, being published in 32 countries including Pakistan and India.
On 17 November 2015, British FHM announced their intention to suspend publication alongside that of fellow men's magazine ZOO ; while the website would still be updated online.

FHM's 100 Sexiest Women is an annual listing compiled by the monthly British men's lifestyle magazine FHM, based on which women they believe to be the "sexiest". As of 2017, each year's list is first announced through a section on FHM's official website, FHM.com. The first listing was published in 1995 and was voted for by a panel of 250 judges. The inaugural winner was German supermodel Claudia Schiffer. From 1996 to 2015, the poll was instead voted for by the general public, with, at its height, several million votes being cast each year. Subsequent winners have included the British singer Cheryl, the American actress Halle Berry, and Jennifer Lopez. At 36 years old, Berry was the oldest woman ever to top the listing, while Lopez was the first to top it more than once. By the time FHM ceased publication of its print edition in January 2016, the 100 Sexiest Women list had been compiled 21 times. The current holder of the Sexiest Woman title is the Israeli actress Gal Gadot.
