With continued success as "Extra's" gorgeous host, Maria Menounos pitched in on promotions by covering the December 2012 issue of Men's Fitness magazine.

The 34-year-old entertainment icon looked stunning in an Eres bikini for the sexy front page shoot while opening up about topics including intimacy to friendship's with your significant other.

Highlights from Maria's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Men's Fitness!

On being friends with your significant other:
“If your girlfriend or wife isn’t your best friend, then she shouldn’t be your romantic partner either. I see lots of guys who fail to get behind their partners—some even stand in the way of other’s dreams, and it’s tragic. And, oh, yeah, I see as many women thwart their guy’s goals and drams.”

On intimacy:
“You both have to put in the work. We as women still love to be romanced and seduced. You need to work as hard to please us as you want us to please you. Again, expect your partner to do that same.”

On goals to set if you’re single:
“Have passion for your work and your hobbies—it’s a huge turn-on. No matter what you do for work, where you live, how you dress, or what you drive, own who you are. I fell for my boyfriend when he was driving a van, living in a basement and working as a carnie.”
