10 Disturbing Diseases That You Can Get in Your Twenties

Looking forward to your summer? Well, we certainly don't want you dwelling on your health while having a great time. We'd especially hate for you to think about how there are rare diseases that stalk guys just around your age. You probably shouldn't even know about the awful things that could already be fermenting within your DNA. You know what? Forget we brought it up--or read on, if you dare...

Reddit’s Guide To Fitness… Yes, THAT Reddit [INFOGRAPHIC]

When I saw that Reddit made a guide to fitness, I was pretty sure it was just going to be a bunch of 'motivational photos' to help you work out those forearms - I was wrong. In fact, this infographic is the brainchild of Reddit Fitness (Fittit) and the users all left some pretty helpful advice on how you can get started on that New Year's resolution. Of course, you're going to need to do more than read an infographic on the internet but even the Arnold needed to start somewhere.

Trojan’s 2011 Sexual Health Report Card Exposes Rawdoggers [POLL]

Trojan’s 2011 Sexual Health Report Card Exposes Rawdoggers [POLL]

Trojan released its annual report on sexual health today and we got our hands on this infographic displaying the nation's most and least sexually healthy colleges. Here's a fun fact: when I worked at Playboy, we hit up the University of Maryland, University of Miami, and FSU for the Girls of the ACC tour. We had a condom sponsor (NOT Trojan) that tried to give away free rubbers. More than half the kids (girls AND guys) turned them down. They were like, "Nah, I'm good. I don't use condoms". I hurt my jaw it dropped so quickly. Anyway, check out the rundown then vote in our poll after the jump.

A Registered Dietitian Wheys In On Packaged Protein

Broke ass college dudes can live off protein shakes and power bars in lieu of meals, especially in the post-spring break "Damn I'm fat” gym-heading season. But can these cheap ass meals-in-a-bar actually replace real food? Some say yes, as the lack of moisture can keep packed goods from decaying and the powdered form is more easily broken down. Others say you miss the grit from the real source. We have Registered Dietitian Rachel Tobin, M.S., R.D. whey in on the matter. Check out the good, the bad, and the ugly after the jump.

Sex With (Health) Benefits

Sex With (Health) Benefits

I love it when Newsweek lets its hair down and talks about the benefits of sex. You dirty, filthy magazine...ahem. In an age where student/teacher sex scandals pop up as often as the teen boners inspiring them, it's no surprise that being sexually frustrated is frequently pinned as one of the main reasons kids today get tense, irritable and violent - just like adults not getting any! An orgasm (from sex) a day will keep the anti-social behavior away.
