Cindy Gallop

Founder and CEO, MakeLoveNotPorn
Cindy Gallop is the founder and CEO of MakeLoveNotPorn,  launched at TED 2009 – ‘Pro-sex. Pro-porn. Pro-knowing the difference’. The extraordinary response proved she’d uncovered a huge global social issue, and led her in 2013 to turn MakeLoveNotPorn into a business designed to do good and make money simultaneously. Today, MakeLoveNotPorn is the world’s first user-generated, human-curated ‘social sex’ videosharing platform: socializing, normalizing and destigmatizing sex to make it easier for everyone to talk about, to promote consent, communication, good sexual values and good sexual behavior, as ‘sex education through real world demonstration’. Cindy foresaw the creator economy 14 years ago when she designed MakeLoveNotPorn’s revenue-sharing business model to democratize access to income. Members pay to subscribe, rent and stream social sex videos; half that income goes to contributors, known as MakeLoveNotPornstars.  MakeLoveNotPorn’s mission is to end rape culture by spearheading the Social Sex Revolution - the revolutionary part isn’t the sex, but the fact MLNP is finally making it social. Cindy speaks at conferences globally and consults, describing her approach as ‘I like to blow shit up. I am the Michael Bay of business.’ Follow her on Twitter and Instagram @cindygallop.
