Pro-sex. Pro-porn. Pro-knowing the difference.

Decentralizing Sex: Cindy Gallop Makes Love Not Porn / Cointelegraph

Written by Amanda B. Johnson for Coin Telegraph. Originally published November 16th, 2014.



Cindy Gallop is the founder of MakeLoveNotPorn, a site dedicated to establishing the difference between porn and “real world” sex, while further enabling people to share and profit from their own lovemaking videos.

It’s been the “profit” part that has her considering Bitcoin. Gallop finds that necessities like VC funding, bank accounts and video streaming platforms usually read “no adult content” in the small print.

As many business owners do, Gallop is cautiously and slowly approaching the Bitcoin space. We thought we’d reach out to her and give her a warm crypto welcome.

 

CT: You have faced many systemic challenges that Bitcoin has faced on the journey to acceptance – PayPal, Chase, Amazon, Android and Apple banned you. How have you handled this and where have you found solutions?

CG: I haven’t. As part of my battle to open up people’s minds, I use analogies all of the time. The three huge areas of disruption today are sex, cannabis, and Bitcoin. Investors are rushing into Bitcoin and cannabis long before they are doing so for sex.

We still don’t have a bank account and are still looking for funding. In terms of taking payments, the key thing about any business partner you work with is they have to want to make it happen. I found a partner like that in Europe, I had to register in Europe to get an account at Wire Card. We were put into the “high risk merchant” division.

We’re getting decent rates and can process Mastercard and Visa. We come up as a “high risk” code, which causes people to receive alerts on their credit card for fraud. Our community will call their banks to explain what the transaction is. There’s strong support from community members.”
