Ladies, no need to worry: Hulk Hogan's sex tape isn't going anywhere. TMZ reports that despite the wrestler's having sued Gawker for $100 million for posting one minute of a video showing him boning a woman on a canopy bed, they are under no obligation to take it down.

The ruling judge said that Hogan didn't provide sufficient proof that the website was outside of its First Amendment rights by posting the video, adding that "This is an example of where the proverbial 'cat is out of the bag.'"

You can watch the clip here, as well as read an executive summary of the entire video, which is 30 minutes long.
