UK INVESTS IN SEX-PARTY STARTUP, KILLING KITTENS, TO SURVIVE PANDEMIC MARKET
So this is pretty interesting. I remember the days when people on dating apps were kind of odd. Maybe they were just desperate? But that is ancient history now. Everything is online these days. Even services that help organize a sex-party for interested…. parties. And there is a new startup with the name, Killing Kittens. It’s been around since 2005 which is forever ago. It organizes members-only sex-parties, with everyone wearing masks. The parties are all in very exclusive venues and the theme, besides sex, is “the pursuit of female pleasure.” And business is going well for Killing Kittens. They now have 180,000 members spanning 12 countries. And now the UK government is investing in this can-do venture.
KILLING KITTENS HOSTS WOMEN-LED SEX-PARTIES IN NEW YORK CITY AND LONDON, SIGN ME UP
Killing Kittens sex-parties are led by women and happen in both London and New York City. So with the pandemic, sex-parties aren’t happening, of course. But since everyone is online, the company has an increase in internet traffic to the tune of 330% more visits. But they always planned on expanding into the sex-tech industry. What is that? It’s a fast growing market for products and businesses that offer enhanced sexual experiences. Killing Kittens just had a successful fundraising campaign on Seedrs of almost a quarter of a million USD. And England, via their Future Fund, is matching that number with its investment. The future is here! Sex is now a market for governments to invest in!
KILLING KITTENS PLANS TO LAUNCH THEIR OWN DATING APP, AND AD PLATFORM FOR SEX PRODUCTS
Future Fund exists to help startups make it thru this Covid nightmare and remain viable businesses. Killing Kittens will use those funds for marketing and innovation, of course. But also to launch their very own dating app. They want to compete with the bigs, like Match.com and Bumble. Dating sites have also seen more users with the Coronavirus outbreak. What else? Their very own ad platform to market sex toys and lingerie. Thanks, England! You’re investing in better ways for us to put in on, to take it off, to get it on and, of course, get off.
