Elizabeth Hurley Thinks Pink

I snagged some precious green room time with Elizabeth Hurley yesterday while the Brit model-actress was in town en route to LA for a packed public appearance at the Bloomingdale’s Westfield San Francisco Centre. For the past eight years, Hurley has hit the road in October for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month to promote Estée Lauder’s pink products, which help raise money for the Breast Cancer Research Institute (Hurley’s own grandmother died of breast cancer in the '70s). So did the 42-year-old spokesmodel look as good in person as she does on film? Even better.

Making Safe Sex Sexy

Hey all. I thought now was as good a time as any to resurface a video of my visit to TV show "Talkback," where I discuss how to put the "sexy" back into safe sex, improve communication ("communication is lubrication") with your partner and really learn about and take pleasure in your body. You'd be surprised (or maybe not!) at how many intelligent 20- and 30-something singles I know who have a problem broaching the "protection" conversation.

Fishy Penance

I am not an advocate of a low-carb diet—or any diet for that matter. But let’s face facts. Sometimes—like for instance after a week in Philly spent stuffing your face with cheese steak, pizza and homemade ravioli, and with the holiday binge fast approaching—it pays to slow down a little.
