Hello Lover | Rebranding the Business of Sexual Pleasure

Ella McLean, founder of Hello Lover – a sex-positive place that’s open all hours.

From the outside, Hello Lover looks like a beautifully branded and curated online sex shop where you can buy all sorts of play things.  But dig a little deeper and you’ll find a brand passionate about taking the guilty out of (everyday) pleasure, and helping their customers to grow their confidence and sexuality, through healthy conversation and community.  

They’re on a mission to change the outdated sex shop industry and make intimacy better, for everyone.

And it’s an industry ripe for a shakeup. This age-old corner of business with a bad reputation that stifles any celebration of healthy sexual wellness. Ella is changing all of that. At the age of just 27 she’s built a brand passionate about taking the guilt out of (everyday) pleasure, and guiding their customers to grow their confidence and sexuality, through healthy conversation and community

In this episode, I chat with Ella about why the sexual pleasure industry needed a rewrite, where we went wrong, and how Hello Lover is changing that.

Let’s dive in.
