Cindy Gallop

Cindy Gallop didn’t set out to become an advocate for the porn industry. But that’s where her career, which includes climbing the ranks at ad agency BBH, founding her own consultancy, and speaking at TED, has taken her. As founder of Make Love Not Porn, a site for real world sex, she navigates the business, technology, and adult entertainment worlds with her own savvy, whip-smart, dont-care-if-you-like-it style. Or in her words, she likes to blow shit up. She is “the Michael Bay of business.”
