Oxford-educated businesswoman Cindy Gallop, 52, has launched a web platform for adult films made by couples, showing the warts-and-all reality of their sex lives.

Makelovenotporn.tv will be a counter argument to hard-core porn, which she fears is badly misleading teenagers as to what is considerate behaviour in the bedroom.

She hopes the site will explode myths such as the idea that women should be entirely hairless.
