Design Matters from the Archive: Cindy Gallop

In this interview from the archive Debbie talks to Cindy Gallop about her career in advertising and about the trouble people have communicating about sex. “People therefore find it bizarrely difficult to talk about sex with the people they’re having it with while they are actually having it.”

Cindy Gallop has said about herself “I like to blow shit up. I’m the Michael Bay of business”. That may be true, but it doesn’t describe all the things she has built in her career. She used to work in advertising, and now she runs her own brand and business innovation consultancy. She started Make Love not Porn a site that shows how real people have sex to counter the cliches of hardcore porn. She also started If We Ran the World, a site designed to turn good intentions into action. She’s a fierce feminist warrior and talks to Debbie about her incredible career.
