Philip Ellis interviews the notorious Cindy Gallop, founder of MakeLoveNotPorn.tv, about her mission to shake up the pornography industry.
Everyone has an opinion when it comes to pornography. Author, entrepreneur and self-proclaimed Michael Bay of business (“she likes to blow shit up”) Cindy Gallop sure does – and she has managed to leverage her own strident thoughts on the subject into a unique business opportunity.
Gallop’s new venture, MakeLoveNotPorn.tv, is currently undergoing beta testing, but more on that in a moment. First, a trip back in time, to TED in 2009, where the website MakeLoveNotPorn.com made its official debut. In a four-minute presentation that went on to be the talk of the conference, Cindy Gallop introduced herself to the audience as a fifty-something woman who dates (and sleeps with) younger men.
