Thanks to Alon Swartz for this.

A snippet to create a user profile the first time it is accessed. It looks better having user.profile rather than user.get_profile() as well.

from django.contrib.auth.models import User
from django.db import models

class Profile(models.Model):
    user = models.ForeignKey(User, unique=True)
    website = models.URLField()

User.profile = property(lambda u: Profile.objects.get_or_create(user=u)[0])

The User.profile as you can see above, runs get_or_create on the Profile object
