Savannah – known as West Coast Savage – is a content creator on OnlyFans, a subscription-based platform used by adult content creators as well as musicians, fitness experts and more.
Savannah has taken out a billboard in Osborne Park, a Perth suburb, which features a photo of her in a bikini, a QR code to her site and the handle of her Instagram account.
She claims it is the first time an OnlyFans creator has gone to these advertising lengths in Australia.
But not everyone is happy with the billboard.
“It’s a mixed barrel, people are concerned about people seeing this picture of me in a bikini at a beach,” she told Nine radio station 6PR.
“I think that is a little far-fetched but each to their own.
“Obviously, the fact that OnlyFans is an adult-content-creating website that caters to adult entertainment.”
She argued the billboard isn’t any more provocative than other advertisements and there are “worse things” a child could see.
“To be honest, young children will see that billboard and see a picture of a woman in a bikini; they won’t know any better,” she said.
She said it was a parent’s responsibility to monitor their child’s internet usage and the platform has parameters in place to stop underage people from accessing the site.
“Teenagers, if they have access to iPhones, tablets, computers, that sort of thing, it’s really the parent’s job to monitor what they’re looking at online,” she said.
“OnlyFans has layers of protection to stop underage people from accessing the site.
“You need to have your licence and a credit card to even access the free site.
“They restrict what OnlyFans content creators can put on their main profile, you can’t have any nudity when you go on the page and open it up.”
She said parents should be putting parental blocks on their child’s technology to prevent access to explicit content.
“If the worst thing your children are going to see today is a woman in a bikini then I think we should have some perspective, there are so many worse things children could be seeing or experiencing than a woman in a bikini at a beach,” she said.
