Study: Women Who Regularly Eat Apples Have Better Sex


I doubt that apples are more of an aphrodisiac than say…Rohypnol, but according to 343 women in this study they do increase sexual desire. Read on, playa…

Researchers from the Santa Chiara hospital in Trento enrolled 731 Italian women from across the country, aged 18 to 43, to take part in an eight-month study aimed at finding a link between daily apple consumption and sexual libido.

The women were split into two groups, those who ate one to two apples a day and those who didn’t eat any.

Among the 343 women who made apples part of their diet, researchers found they had higher scores on a sexual function index, especially in the lubrication and desire categories, than those who didn’t.

“We found that women who regularly ate apples, at least one a day, had a much better quality sex life,” Tomasso Cai, one of the lead researchers, told The Local.

He said that while good physical health and a daily intake of vegetables also help boost women’s sexual desire, the most important factor is floridazina, a compound found beneath the skin of the apple that is similar to the hormone estradiol, which plays an important role in female sexual arousal.

Swiss Government Uses Skinemax Style Nudity To Promote Safe Sex


This from the country that created drive-up-and-get-up-in-there brothels. The goal of the media campaign is to promote “worry-free” safer sex, though you could still catch The Herp from a few of the things done in this video. Not to say it wouldn’t be worth it, just depends.

Bacon Prices Rise Due To Explosive Chinese Pig Diarrhea


As I’ve said before, unless you kill and clean your own food it’s going to have some ass in it. But this is crazy, millions of pigs across the country are dying from severe runs, like the kind humans get from eating that supposedly hormone-free Chipotle chicken. The result: Bacon prices have risen 13 percent and will continue to do so until these pigs tighten their dook chutes. From Gothamist:

A devastating virus sweeping through U.S. pig farms is killing millions of piglets and contributing to a steep rise in the cost of bacon. Porcine epidemic diarrhea has been wreaking havoc at farms in 27 states, with estimates placing the loss of pig life between 2.7 million and 6 million, according to the Post. All the piggy deaths have in turn made the cost of bacon—and to a lesser degree other pork products like ham and chops—rise by as much as 13% since last year, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Scientists think PED originated in China, but are unsure how it settled on our shores…Farmers like Craig Rowles tried to keep the virus out of his Iowa farm, but despite cleaning and training efforts he still lost 13,000 babies in just a few weeks. The symptoms of the virus are familiar to anyone suffering from food poisoning; horrific, dehydrating diarrhea.

World’s Thinnest Condom Might Actually Be Worth Using


The made in China AONI condom is just 0.036 millimeters thin and has to be a hell of a lot more comfortable than using the plastic grocery bag found in your mom’s recycling bin. By comparison, the Trojan Ultra Thin condom is 0.5 millimeters thin. The AONI is only available in Asia right now but will arrive in the U.S. in the near future, which is already like four years too late for me (from Shanghaiist).

Hot Pockets Recalled For Diseased Meat, Still Taste Great


I would say that America is in peril without Hot Pockets, but diseased or not, I’m sure you’ll be able to get a good deal on them at Big Lots, Odd Lots, and other stores that sell stuff that fell off the truck or was tainted with human flesh during a workplace accident.

Nestle USA is recalling 238,000 cases of its Hot Pockets pastries because they may contain meat included in a massive recall of nearly 9 million pounds of “diseased and unsound” beef products.

Three different sizes of Philly Steak and Cheese Hot Pockets and Hot Pockets Croissant Crust Philly Steak and Cheese products in the two-pack box are part of the voluntary recall issued Friday but announced on Tuesday.

Officials with the Nestle Prepared Foods Division said that the firm used meat produced by Rancho Feeding Corp. in 2013. Last week, the Petaluma, Calif., plant recalled 8.7 million pounds of beef parts, including whole carcasses and heads, feet, livers and so-called “mountain oysters,” among other items.

U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service officials said the meat was recalled because the firm processed “diseased and unsound animals” without benefit of full inspection. The plant voluntarily closed last week and FSIS officials are conducting an intensive investigation of its processes and products.” (NBC News)
