Simcha was a little bummed that the new Clueless video game doesn’t involve matching outfits, like that way-before-its-time computer program Cher uses in the movie. But you can upload photos of your clothes to sites like Weardrobe to keep track of all your stuff. Personally, I think this seems like a lot of work, but it could be useful when you need help remembering your favorite go-to outfits, like this morning, when I woke up an hour late and couldn’t figure out what to wear. Rather than stand in standing in front of my closet pondering apparel options, I could have visited my virtual closet and picked something that worked in the past. Technology can be so useful.

The Pill is a miracle. It’s 99% effective at preventing pregnancy, which is almost as good as you’re gonna get from abstinence. We said almost. While 12 million American women rely on the oral contraceptive to stop them from going prematurely preggos (Ashlee Simpson must not have gotten the memo), it’s unfortunately not indomitable. There are still five ways you can get pregnant while pill popping. Have your cervix take notes.

Forget fancy algorithms, one online dating site uses a technique that’s less high-tech to pair up its members SawYouAtSinai.com, an Orthodox Jewish singles site, employs 365 actual matchmakers who go through users’ profiles and make recommendations. Tova Weinberg, one of the site’s matchmakers, spends eight hours a day looking at profiles, and she says she’s responsible for 1,000 dates a week. I wouldn’t mind paying $11 to $15 per month, to have someone else sift through dud profiles for me — if only I were Jewish. [Time] Keep reading »
Bad kissers can destroy good chemistry. No one likes to be slobbered all over and it’s especially embarrassingly in public. But before you go kicking honky lips to the curb, remember, sex is all about communication and any new lover needs some coaching on techniques to turn you on. While talking to a man about his moves is always a precarious situation, it must be done! Granted you have to tread more gently than when you snuck home after curfew as a teenager. So how do you stop the drool? Howcast.com has created an instructional video (see above) to talk you through your lip service problem. Watch, learn, and make out!

Nowadays, Hamm’s not alone. More than a few Hollywood players got their start working in the X-rated industry–and they aren’t ashamed to admit it. After the jump, find out who made their mark in Porn Valley. Keep reading »
“Dylan was doing occupations at school recently and the teacher said, ‘You have to go home and ask Mummy and Daddy what they do.’ So we were trying to explain to Dylan that we make movies and he went to Michael, ‘Hang on. Mama makes movies, you make pancakes!’ So my two-time Oscar-winning husband with a career of 40 years looks at me and says, ‘Oh, it’s come to that!’” — Catherine Zeta-Jones [The Sun, U.K.] Keep reading »
