Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Does Jimi Hendrix have a sex tape? Of all the dead rock stars we want to see naked, he’s close to the top, so we squealed a little when we read this story. A porn distributor sold the film to Vivid after the footage was found by a collector who bought a box of rock memorabilia bought at an auction. So how do they know for sure that the man in the film is Hendrix? The DVD includes commentary from two women who had sex with Hendrix and believe the tape is real: Pamela Des Barres, the author of â€œIâ€™m With the Band: Confessions of a Groupieâ€ and Cynthia “Plaster Caster” Albritton, who was known for doing plaster casts of the genitals of rock stars, including Hendrix.

If you think that glossy lips and sun-kissed skin make for a good combination, you have another thing coming — and that thing is called cancer. Most shiny lip balms and glosses don’t offer protection and can even increase light penetration through the lip surface. Wear a lip sun block with an SPF of 30 and reapply throughout the day, dermatologist Dr. Christine Brown suggests, and if you have any changes to your lip color that aren’t caused by lipstick (i.e., if an area turns opaque or white), consult a dermatologist.

Aww, look at the adorable way in which modern technology brings people together. This kid asked his date to prom by posting the above image on the internet and then digged it in hopes that his crush would come across it. So much more complicated than just asking, but hey, nerds like a challenge. Click here to see a larger version. [Via Boinkology] Keep reading »
Did you know chocolate’s good for you? No? You haven’t heard that in a gazillion studies? Well, it turns out chocolate, especially the dark stuff (never anything good happening for us milk chocolate lovers), helps ward off a serious pregnancy complication known as preeclampsia. Preeclampsia is when blood pressure spikes while excess protein is released into the urine. Sounds like fun, right? Well, women who ate five or more servings of chocolate each week in their third trimester were 40 percent less likely to develop preeclamsia than those who ate chocolate less than once a week. We recommend Chocolove.
Additionally, a British research company is looking for volunteers who are willing to eat a bar of chocolate every day for a year. The researchers are hoping to find out whether compounds called flavonoids can reduce the risk of heart disease for menopausal women with type 2 diabetes. [Reuters and Reuters] Keep reading »
Sex and sketch comedy go together like penis and vagina. And the good people at Planned Parenthood of Portland, Oregon get both apparently. While the health videos we watched in high school were dull, outdated, and often gross, their take on taking care of down there features cool hotties and is laugh out loud awesome. Especially the silly “Down There Song”, which has made us want to rename the vag and dub it the “hot pocket.” So check out the site and use a condom!
