About KAMA

We are building the sex, love, and intimacy superbrand of the future. Kama is a wellbeing platform based on the science-backed idea that pleasure is health. With stress being the number one proxy killer in the world today, our mental health is more important than ever. As a society, however, we too often focus on pain and look to the brain to restore balance. This is why Kama has a different approach to wellbeing. We are shifting the focus to our body and placing pleasure at the forefront of the experience, regardless of your background, sexual preferences, body type, age, or gender.

Our first product, launching publicly in August, is a sexual wellness self-discovery guide for gentle exploration, real communication, and fulfilling intimacy. We offer a personal experience that is expertly curated and backed by science. More than a business, Kama is a social movement aimed at turning the biggest cultural taboo into a positive conversation by building a diverse and engaged community.

Kama was founded by Chloe Macintosh, an experienced entrepreneur who was most recently Chief Creative Officer at Soho House Group. Chloe previously co-founded Made.com, one of the fastest-growing startups in UK history. Sexual wellness has been a life-long passion for Chloe, and Kama is the product of over 15 years of self-discovery, research, and preparation. Through Kama, her mission is to help people access their pleasure.

Our investors are a diverse group of the world’s leading VC firms and influential angels, including AlleyCorp (led by Kevin Ryan, founder of MongoDB, Zola, Gilt Groupe, Business Insider), Female Founders Fund, and Raine Group.

The mission behind Kama

In 2019, the World Association for Sexual Health declared pleasure a human right: “It is everyone’s birthright and therefore it should be included in all aspects of healthcare education and training.”

Our mission is to transform how we experience pleasure and its role in our wellbeing. We want to help people of all ages, genders, and sexualities make sexual satisfaction a part of their everyday lives by connecting their mind, body, and heart.

We are designed for infinite pleasure, which is why Kama is shifting the focus back to our bodies and taking a different approach to wellness and wellbeing. We are placing pleasure at the forefront of the conversation.
