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

Entrepreneur Cindy Gallop is hellbent on bringing “sextech” out of the fringes.

You’re probably thinking: Does the world really need more connected vibrators or smart kegel trainers?

But Gallop defines “sextech” as any technology venture designed to innovate and enhance human sexuality.

For her, that means getting people comfortable talking about sex … by sharing videos of themselves having it. Gallop, a former advertising executive based in New York City, calls that social sex.

She has been working since 2009 to normalize conversations about sex, first launching a site to simply debunk sex myths that come from porn (for example, no, not all women like being cursed out in bed).

In 2013, she expanded it with MakeLoveNotPorn.tv, a social platform where people can share videos of consensual sex with their partner.

Gallop wants to combat the fact that sex is taboo. When people do talk about it, their words are often infused with shame. “Walk of shame” and “slut shaming” are just a couple widely used terms that attach judgment to sexual activity
