Last week I was asked to write a piece for Virgin Entrepreneur on the challenges of making sex a viable business model. Of course I was happy to oblige — it’s collaborations like this that help us to bring sex into the mainstream and make it a more normal topic of conversation.

I’ve been thinking a lot about podcasts recently — which are your favourite ones? Would you be interested in one around sextech and interesting things happening in pleasure? Hit reply to drop me your thoughts!
