Quickies!: Salma Hayek Will End World Hunger, Christian Bale Was Just Having A Bad Day

    Dating Drama: No Glove, No Love? Not Always.

    2006 was a year of unprotected sex for me. No, not every time, but I started off the year with a fling with a slightly older man I was besotted with, who didn’t speak a word about condoms, and, in response, I didn’t either.

    The Daily Squeeze: The Pill Online, Keira Knightley’s Mom, And Family Dinners And Drugs

  • A private company in the U.K. is going to offer the pill to women over the age of 18. Say a woman has taken the pill before, well, with this website, she won’t have to go to her doctor when she needs to get her prescription refilled.

They asked a variety of people about the greatest and worst innovations and ideas of all time.
