As I was having one of my more reflective weekends, not surrounded by Aperol Spritz and Tequilla, I was looking through my episodes. I was really annoyed with myself about the lack of inspirational women I had interviewed. This completely unintentional but within seconds I had started putting together a list of women I really wanted ot have on the show. The first one that really screamed out at me was Emma Sayle the CEO of Killing Kittens.
Emma is one of the UK’s leading ‘sex-entrepreneurs’. She made her name launching the elite global adult-party brand Killing Kittens in 2005, which now has over 80,000 members having launched events across the US, Australia and Europe.
The popular press have pronounced her a leader at the cutting edge of the new dawn of female sexual liberation. She has appeared in national and international media from TV shows to broadsheets to radio debates and corporate talks.
What Emma has created with Killing Kittens is nothing short of incredible. This is an episode that nobody should miss and it was a real pleasure to have had her on the show. Loved every minute of it!!!!
