Discussion

1) Cindy Gallop is “looking to normalize conversations about sex…with MakeLoveNotPorn.tv, a social platform where people can share videos of consensual sex with their partner.”   Does a website that allows sharing of video “normalize” the conversation or not?

2) “investors are leery of publicly funding a sex tech company, which is still considered taboo.”   Why is this, and how do you overcome this?
