Make love, not porn



So this empowered middle aged feminist, Cindy Gallop, suspects that many of her one night stands may only be using her for sex. She blames porn. As such, Cindy has launched a web site to encourage men to make love to her, not just ejaculate on her pretty face.

Yeah, this material pretty much writes itself.

“You don’t want to do those things with someone you hardly know,” she tells me. Men recreating the money shot is something that “has happened to every single one of my girlfriends,” she says. The advertising executive, Cindy Gallop, became so irritated by this very thing that she made it the central complaint of her TED talk when launching her website, makelovenotporn.com, in 2009. The talk went viral.

  1. Um - not quite accurate, darling. I have no problem at all with being used for sex :) given I'm completely open about the fact that I date younger men casually and recreationally. You can read all about that in my short TED e-book 'Make Love Not Porn: Technology's Hardcore Impact On Human Behavior':

    I launched http://makelovenotporn.com/ with that TED talk five years ago, when I realized that because we don't talk about #realworldsex openly and honestly, porn is becoming sex education by default, in not a good way. Which is why our tag line is 'Pro-sex. Pro-porn. Pro-knowing the difference.'

    The response was so extraordinary - I wrote this for Ireland at the request of the Irish Journal, but it applies to every country, everywhere:

    that I and my team launched https://makelovenotporn.tv/ 10 months ago. You'll find all the details in a more up to date form in my SXSW talk from earlier this year on 'The Future Of Porn' :)

    1. "porn is becoming sex education by default, in not a good way."

      Porn is the best kind of sex education. I learned much more about sex watching porn than in any kind of sex education during school and college.

      And the best part: porn is much more FUN than questionable seminars :)

    2. Cindy - I noticed you always like to note that you sleep with younger men. I think you say it more for yourself to hear it rather than your audience. It's 2013. Sleeping with men is easy.
