Project Description

Hi – I’m Cindy Gallop, founder and CEO of MakeLoveNotPorn, here with our fabulous Madam Curator Sarah Beall.

Sarah Cindy

I date younger men, and discovered through personal experience that when today’s 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, in not a good way. So I started  MakeLoveNotPorn – Pro-sex. Pro-porn. Pro-knowing the difference.  The issue isn’t porn, but that we don’t talk about sex in the real world. I launched at TED 2009 as a Porn World vs Real World site, exploding porn myths:

The extraordinary global response led to – a crowdsourced, user-generated video-sharing platform that showcases #realworldsex in all its funny, messy, beautiful, wonderful, ridiculous humanness, with a revenue-sharing business model for our contributors, or MakeLoveNotPornstars.  We’re making it easier to talk about sex by building a whole new category online – social sex – to normalize sex; promote good sexual values and behavior; help drive better relationships and better lives; and ultimately make the world a better and happier place.

In the four years since we launched, it’s been welcomed everywhere, but we fight a huge battle every day to build it. In every area of business infrastructure we come up against three little words: ‘No adult content.’ Sex-tech startups face huge challenges – but in a world where the average age at which a child first comes across porn online is eight, we are so badly needed. We’ve built a community of 400,000 members globally, over 100 MakeLoveNotPornstars, over 1,000 videos submitted – all with just 2 full-time employees, me and Sarah, and with no money for marketing, just organic growth.  Raising the funding we need is challenging – conventional investors won’t touch sex-tech. Money raised here will be used to hire a full-time team of developers and curators, to complete our half-built platform to be the full friction-free user experience we have planned, and to broaden it out to socialize sex for everyone, educate and inform. We want to change the way the world has sex for the better with our MLNP #socialsexrevolution, and we really need your help.

All donors’ names will be featured with thanks on

We’ve structured a number of these rewards to potentially be group donations – we’d love you to get friends together to chip in. For example, Cindy is happy to Skype with a whole bunch of you on the other end, and Sarah would love to chat to a group of you about how you become MakeLoveNotPornstars!

Learn even more about the positive impact MakeLoveNotPorn has had on everyday people by watching MakeLoveNotPorn: The Social Sex Revolution, a 15 min SFW documentary made in collaboration with Chandelier Creative and The Front! Learn the backstory behind this documentary, here.

    Maree – very shortly! I will be emailing you in the next couple of days – I apologize, we’re in the process of activating rewards but I’ve been delayed communicating with our wonderful backers due to travel, about to address that 🙂 We are so grateful for your support!
