UK-born New Yorker Cindy Gallop is an endlessly chic, intelligent, confident, articulate entrepreneur who also happens to maintain a "stable" of twenty-something men she sleeps with and watches hardcore porn on the reg--we love her! Founder of Makelovenotporn.com, she's taking strides to re-educate the country about sex where, due to a lack of comprehensive, frank and realistic sex education, the exponentially prevalent hardcore porn industry becomes the baseline. Not only that, her apartment is unbelievably badass.
Designed to feel like a "Shanghai nightclub", Gallop's entirely black painted apartment creates an atmosphere that is sleek, slinky and sexy but still welcoming (especially to twenty-something men), plus the dark walls and floors helps highlight her eccentric collection of designer and fea market objets d'art--gold-dipper alligator or Gucci chainsaw anyone? And who wouldn't worship a woman who displayed her shoe collection in the living room because she treats them like art pieces? I can only hope to be lounging in leather and a sharp bob in my sprawling club-chic New York apartment when I'm in my 50s!
