“I date younger men. Ten years ago this led me to realise that when total freedom of access to hardcore porn online meets our society’s equally total reluctance to talk openly and honestly about sex, porn becomes sex education by default. This is not a good thing. As a response I launched MakeLoveNotPorn.com, a tiny, clunky ‘Porn World vs Real World’ website, in 2009 at TED.
The world soon responded. I realised I had uncovered a huge global social issue and saw an opportunity for what I believe is the future of business – to do good and make money simultaneously. So in 2013 I launched MakeLoveNotPorn.tv – the world’s first user-generated video sharing platform that celebrates #realworldsex as a counterpoint and complement to porn, with a revenue-sharing model for our contributors, or MakeLoveNotPornstars.
We are Pro-sex. Pro-porn. Pro-knowing the difference. We’re building a whole new category on the internet – social sex – with the aim of socialising sex to make it easier for everyone in the world to talk about, in order to promote good sexual values and good sexual behavior. We call MakeLoveNotPorn the Social Sex Revolution. The revolutionary part isn’t the sex, it’s the social.”
