Is former Uber boss Travis Kalanick about to join the adult sector?

Posted: July 10, 2017

Shareholders may have reportedly demanded the resignation of Uber CEO Travis Kalanick in June but the 40-year-old American billionaire has already had an offer of gainful employment from the adult sector. British author, performer, motivational speaker, and entrepreneur Shed Simove has recently launched a new website called Luber, selling lube, condoms, and over 5,000 adult toys, and Shed has generously offered Kalanick the position of CEO of the business.

“I’m more than happy to offer Travis the CEO position of Luber now that he’s freer, as long as I can stay on as head of product development of Luber,” said Shed, whose previous adult-themed enterprises include the book Fifty Shades of Grey and the Rampant Rabbi. The former contained fifty pages, each of which was a different tone of the colour grey, while the latter was a vibrator shaped like a Jewish scholar. Both products attracted the attention of m’learned friends. The vibrator was part of a ‘character’ range which also included the Buckingham Phallus (a dildo shaped like the Queen) and Cunt Dracula.

Whether Kalanick accepts the offer or not, Shed is also open to offers from someone in the adult industry interested in buying his site and brand in order for it to reach its full potential.
