What do you do for work?
I’m the founder and CEO of MakeLoveNotPorn. We are the world’s first and only user-generated, human-curated, social sex video sharing platform, celebrating #realworldsex as a counterpoint to porn. We’re ‘Pro-sex. Pro-porn. Pro-knowing the difference.’ We’re what Facebook would be if it allowed you to socially sexually self-express – we are socializing sex to make it easier for everyone to talk about, in order to promote good sexual values and behavior. We operate a revenue-sharing model: members pay to rent and stream social sex videos, and half the income goes to our contributors, or as we call them, MakeLoveNotPornstars.

In the era of #metoo, everyone’s talking about consent, but nobody knows what it actually looks like in bed. Every video on MLNP is a demonstration of consent, good sexual values and good sexual behavior in action.  We’re the Social Sex Revolution; the revolutionary part isn’t the sex, but the social.

Tell us something surprising about yourself.
I’m always scared shitless just before I walk on to any stage to speak.

Worst dating story?
Funnily enough, I don’t have one. I’ve obviously been very lucky.

Biggest parenting fail?
I’ve been lucky here too, I don’t have kids. I’ve never wanted any. I’m so glad I always knew I didn’t want kids, as opposed to finding out the hard way, by having them.

Greatest new discovery?
Necessaire Sex Gel  – You can never have too much lube, and this stuff is fantastic.

Vices?
I don’t really have any, because if I enjoy it then as far as I’m concerned it’s a virtue, but I guess it would be too many martinis. (Grey Goose, straight up with a twist.)  Out of long and painful experience, I’ve developed the Cindy Gallop Martini Rule:

One martini is bliss
Two martinis is ecstasy.
Three martinis is fucking stupid.

But as the saying goes, rules were made to be broken…. Others agree, like the man who said, “A martini is like a woman’s breasts: one is not enough and three are too many” and of course, Dorothy Parker:

I love a good martini
One or two at the most
Three and I’m under the table
Four and I’m under the host.
