Why is the Tory government giving Covid-19 support cash to a firm that sells sex parties?

Silly question! I hear you cry. Boris Johnson has a reputation to support and this is right up his proverbial alley!

But is it really a good use of public money?

The Tories have decided to match-fund a crowdfunding project by Killing Kittens, a sex party firm that is making a transition from being an events-based company to a “sex tech” company that runs some events.

It has raised £170,000 and the Tories will double that up to £340,000 from its Future Fund scheme, which is meant to support technology start-ups through the Covid-19 pandemic.

Call me po-faced if you like but I’m not convinced that this is the sort of firm that is meant to benefit from the fund.

It means the money will not be available for firms that do deserve it.

Oh, but wait! The money is apparently a loan. If Killing Kittens doesn’t pay it back, then you and I will own a 1.47 per cent equity stake in a company that organises orgies.

Part of me is extremely uncomfortable about that – and part is curious to find out if we’ll be paid dividends “in kind”.

    From RT News – “it’s just a scam to give money to their mates … later on they’ll divest the shares back to their friends at a convenient moment when the market is at it’s lowest, or just before the companies’ collapse”

    I agree …….and Mike- shame on you, cheeky scamp !

    The name of the company should be a cause for concern. No way it should receive any funding. It should be investigated by the Police.

    Wonderful!! Now the Fascist tories are pimps – lending money to a mens’ pimp industry company. No matter what spin this company utters they are catering to rich men who want to purchase women and inflict male sexual violence on them!

    So this contradicts the fact government is not supposed to be business of furthering male sexual violence against women! But hey this is a good business deal because the fascist tories are using our public money to increase profits! But who will receive the profits – not us peasants!

      Apparently the firm is very careful to avoid any harm to women, but keen to make it very accessible for women who enjoy the kind of thing it offers (whatever that is)!

      So I’m not convinced you can say it’s about male – or any other – sexual violence.

      The issue is about whether public money should be invested in any commercial pursuit that involves selling sex.
