A friend of Kate Middleton says demand for her infamous sex parties has boomed since Boris Johnson announced Freedom Day plans.
Her business, Killing Kittens, has already sold more than 2,000 tickets to events including a 'fully immersive fantasy experience based around a garden of delights', the Mail reports today.
Emma Sayle, who became friends with the Duchess of Cambridge when they were pupils at Downe House School in Berkshire, said: "The Roaring Twenties are back, this time dressed in masks, suspenders and stockings. It's going to be a hot, hot summer."
Killing Kittens hosts swingers' parties – costing up to £400 a ticket – at posh London venues and has even launched its own social media network.
The parties, described as "a sea of naked bodies", have attracted stars such as Kate Moss, Jude Law, Sadie Frost, Jason Statham and Rhys Ifans. For lockdown, it ran virtual orgies on Zoom.
They now operate in nine different countries, and Sayle's business, The KK Group, employs 14 full-time members of staff and has an annual turnover of £1.5million.
"It's unbelievable how the public makeover of female sexuality has changed," Sayle said during an interview last year.
"I knew it was coming and I knew there was a need. When suddenly the MeToo movement happened, I was like, 'This is our moment, this is what I've been waiting for to go mainstream.'
"Because when women start taking control, it's [in] all aspects of their lives, from sexuality through to business. And that's exactly what's happened."
Sayle lives in the Surrey village of Laleham with her husband James Tindall, a former Olympic hockey player, and their three children under six.
She graduated from Birmingham University with a degree in sports science, before establishing herself in freelance PR and working on publicity for an erotica show.
After a while, she decided to strike out in it on her own. In 2005, she chose her brand's distinctive name and set up a website where people could register their interest.
The reception was mixed.
"Ninety per cent of the people around me told me I was completely crazy for doing it and that I was disgusting and seedy," she said.
"But the more people do that to me, the more I'm very much, 'Watch me, I'm going to prove you wrong.'"
Sayle says the name Killing Kittens comes from the saying "Every time you masturbate…God kills a kitten."
And when people walk into a Killing Kittens sex party, there are few things they can count on, including non-disclosure agreements to protect high-flying members, a strict no cellphone policy and masks.
The parties, all set in luxurious locations, facilitate fantasy scenarios for couples who want to spice up their sex life – including one time when someone dressed as Batman kidnapped a man in a London park where he was tied up in a hotel and rescued by his Superwoman.
Since Killing Kittens' conception, Sayle says women have held all of the power. Men can only attend if they're invited by a female member, and only women can make the first move.
The exclusive events first debuted in London and have since expanded to lavish locations in cities all over the world, including New York, Venice, and Sydney.
Thanks to the popularity of the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise, they now create dungeon playrooms for guests to explore BDSM 'in a very vanilla way'.
Sayle says that tickets vary in price – with entry for a single woman often £50, while a ticket for a couple can be as much as £400.
Around the same time she launched Killing Kittens, Sayle also launched The Sisterhood – a group for women to participate in "crazy sports events all over the world" and raise money for women and children's charities.
In 2007, a single Kate Middleton, who had been five years below Sayle at school, was briefly involved. She knew Sayle through mutual friends and, during a temporary separation from her then-boyfriend Prince William, signed up to take part in a cross-Channel boat race.
"She was involved for about three months, but then dropped out a week before the race and got back together with William," says Sayle.
"I said to her, 'Have you really thought about dropping out?' Because…she was doing something really cool and hardcore and off her own bat, for charity, and dropping out the week before was not a good look. I said what I would have said to anyone who had dropped out: 'Come on, you've got to do it, for you.' I was disappointed for her."
Kate's decision was reportedly prompted by royal advisers' concerns about the publicity and possible security fears for fellow crew mates.
Sayle is no longer friends with the Duchess.
"We're in completely different, parallel universes, really," she said. "There are mutual friends."
