  • Taxpayers own a stake in sex party firm Killing Kittens as part of Covid scheme
  • Business was founded by Emma Sayle, a former schoolmate of Kate Middleton
  • Mother-of-three’s firm, valued at £15m, also runs an adult-only social network

British taxpayers now own a stake in a sex party firm – which boasts of organising ‘hedonistic’ events – thanks to one of Chancellor Rishi Sunak‘s Covid support schemes.

Killing Kittens was founded in 2005 by Emma Sayle, a former schoolmate of the Duchess of Cambridge, and offers ‘ultimate adult playgrounds’ to attendees of their ‘unforgettable nights of excitement and exploration’.

The firm also runs an adult-only social network for those looking for ‘casual dating, friendship, kink partners or a long-term relationship’.

It is claimed to be the ‘only social media platform where you can feel free to express your true sexual self’.

It is now part-owned by taxpayers via the state-owned British Business Bank, which oversaw support schemes for UK firms during the Coronavirus crisis.

Under the Bank’s Future Fund, loans given to businesses that struggled due to Covid restrictions can be converted into shares.

This has seen British taxpayers take a stake in hundreds of companies, including Bolton Wanderers football club, a luxury villa rental firm, and a south London brewery.

Killing Kittens organises regular parties across the world, with one sold out event - to be held at a secret central London townhouse next month - promising to be 'the ultimate party for conniseurs of luxury and indulgence'

Ms Sayle owns more than a quarter of the shares in Killing Kittens, according to Companies House information.

Taxpayers now also have a shareholding of around 1.5 per cent, she told the Financial Times

‘The Government has already made money on the investment,’ said the mother-of-three, who married to former Great Britain hockey player James Tindall. 

Killing Kittens, which is valued at around £15million, boasts of having more than 180,000 members.

It organises regular parties across the world, with one sold out event – to be held at a secret central London townhouse next month – promising to be ‘the ultimate party for conniseurs of luxury and indulgence’.

Guests are told their ‘desires will lead the way through beautiful spaces and sensual experiences, where every detail is designed to enchant and inspire’.

Ms Sayle has also previously founded Sisterhood, which organises charity sporting events for women.

The Duchess of Cambridge, who briefly attended Downe House boarding school with Ms Sayle, was famously photographed training with a dragon boat team on the Thames in 2007 as a Sisterhood member.

In 2020, senior Labour MP Sarah Champion urged the Chancellor to stop payments being made to Killing Kittens via the Future Fund.

But Ms Sayle hit back at criticism, claiming that if Ms Champion ‘had really done her research and knew what we were about’ she would not have made the suggestion.

A spokeswoman for the British Business Bank confirmed that taxpayers now have a stake in Killing Kittens via the Future Fund.

They said: ‘The Future Fund used a set of standard terms with published eligibility criteria.

‘The process provided a clear, efficient way to make funding available as widely and as swiftly as possible without the need for lengthy negotiations.

‘Applications that met all the eligibility criteria received investment.’

Mr Sunak launched the £500million Future Fund in May 2020, promising convertible loans of between £125,000 and £5million to ‘support continued growth and innovation’ in various industries.

The Chancellor pledged help for ‘start-up and innovative firms’ that he said would ‘help spur our recovery from the pandemic’.
