#65: Sextech, a trillion dollar market: an update on MLNP and the female founder journey with Cindy Gallop

Cindy Gallop is the founder and CEO of MakeLoveNotPorn (MLNP) launched at TED 2009 – ‘Pro-sex. Pro-porn. Pro-knowing the difference’.

In 2013 she turned MLNP into the world’s first user-generated, human-curated social sex video-sharing platform, socialising and normalising sex in order to make it easier to talk about, to promote consent, communication, good sexual values and good sexual behaviour. MakeLoveNotPorn is spearheading the Social Sex Revolution (the revolutionary part isn’t the sex, but the social). Given the challenges Cindy has faced finding investors, she is raising the world’s first dedicated sextech fund, All the Sky Holdings.

She speaks at conferences globally and consults, describing her approach as ‘I like to blow shit up. I am the Michael Bay of business.’

We cover the following in our conversation:

  • Cindy talks to us about what she's been up to since she was last on the show ie an update on MLNP and her journey as a female founder.
  • Sextech: the trillion dollar market opportunity 
  • Building a new market and new categories
  • The challenges in the industry
  • Raising $20m for MLNP
  • Female investors
  • Cindy's view on the overturning of Roe vs Wade (US) and where do we go from here?
