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.

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