Sunday in Cannes Social Media-Style


Each day we'll bring you a little bit of Cannes. On Sunday, the festival kicked off with a talk by Cindy Gallop who spoke frankly about sex, her work with Make Love Not Porn And her desire for sex to be socialized in a way that makes it less than taboo, completely acceptable and for it not to be tarniches by the exaggerations of the porn world.

In her talk Cindy also noted that just three percent of all creative directors in the United States are female, something that really needs to change fast.
