Two OnlyFans stars inviting male Schoolies to join them in creating explicit content for their subscriber-only pages have defended their actions.
British expat Bonnie Blue, 24, and Brisbane-based Leilani May, 25, posted on social media inviting 18-year-old school leavers in Surfers Paradise to take part in porn videos.
After being accused of predatory behavior, the women said all the Schoolies they approached were above the legal age of consent.
The budding porn stars said they carry out strict ID checks and consent forms, and check the sobriety of participants before doing the deed.
They also said they gave them the option of keeping their faces off-camera.
Blue and May have been called “disgusting” after issuing a call out to Schoolies. Schoolies.
“A lot of people have an issue with the fact these people are 18. The negative comments are like, ‘What if they’re 17?’. They’re not 17, we check ID, we have a process – they are consenting and they are signing consent forms.,” Ms Blue said via the Gold Coast Bulletin.
“As for any ‘barely legal’ comments – there’s no in-between with the law when it comes to legal age, it’s black and white. The fact people are trying to pretend there’s a grey area and go ‘what if’ – squish your what if because that’s not the case.
“People that have an issue with age haven’t got an issue with us – they’ve got an issue with the law.”
Blue said they had received a number of messages from school leavers asking if they could be in a video.
“We started getting messages, ‘I’ll be here (the Gold Coast) for Schoolies, let’s film content,’ and we laughed – we only filmed with established creators and then thought ‘Why not’,” Blue said.
May said they had taken all the health and safety precautions and even said they had included a legal document for each participant to sign.
“A lot of the comments we’ve got are ‘You’re going after them, they’ve been drinking and there are drugs involved’ – there’s not,” May said.
“The first thing we do is we tell them they can’t drink until after filming. They have to be sober – they’re signing legal documents.
“It’s entirely their call and what they’re comfortable with. They take part in the filming, we practice safe sex, and we as sex workers are checked every two weeks. They get a copy of the fully edited video.
“If they don’t want to do it, they don’t reach out – it’s their choice.”
