The Jimi Hendrix Sex Tape: Proof That No Celebrity Is Safe From This Nation’s Constant Wank Mining

Apr 29th, 2008 // 6 Comments

AP060516039405.jpgVivid Entertainment is releasing a 45-minute DVD purporting to be a sex tape of Jimi Hendrix, and from the description, it sounds like the tape is definitely maybe Hendrix. Or an impersonator. Or, y’know, some dude who has an Afro and rings on his fingers. As the New York Times describes it: “The film shows a naked man who resembles Hendrix, the guitar legend who died in 1970, wearing a bandanna in his Afro, having sex with two brunettes in a dimly lighted bedroom. His full face appears on screen for only a few seconds, with his eyes closed. In other portions there are flashes of his profile. But his hands, bedecked with rings, roam large on the screen at times. The film has no audio.”

Leaving aside the distastefulness of digging up someone’s corpse in order to make a buck from those people who are so desperate for something new to jerk off to, they’ll pay to see their long-departed guitar heroes (or their professional doppelgangers) in flagrante, the question remains: Hasn’t anyone who’s seen footage of Hendrix playing guitar pretty much know what his during-sex facial expressions were like anyway? In case you need a refresher course, there’s a clip of my favorite Hendrix track, “Fire”–complete with song-opening tongue waggle!–below.

    What a riff!
    I saw Billy Childish cover this the other night. It really brought out the latent punk rocker in Londoners. The crowed snapped from subdued to throwing beer and storming the stage.

    Sorry, this is OT.

    Um….Billy Childish wank tape next?

    ..with Tracey Emin??

    oooh. I feel ill.
