    ‘Australia’s Most Sexually Active Woman’ On Positions, Pleasure and Money

    ‘Australia’s Most Sexually Active Woman’ On Positions, Pleasure and Money

    You can hear the second half of Mia's conversation with Annie here. Subscribe to Mamamia

    At the intersection of sex, marketing and the gig economy, you will find Annie Knight, who has been branded ‘Australia’s Most Sexually Active Woman’.Annie is a 27-year-old Brisbane woman who makes her own sex content and sells it to subscribers via Only Fans where she is in the top 0.02% of creators on the platform.

    Only Fans became wildly popular during the pandemic, with thousands of Australians creating accounts in the hope of converting home made content - usually sexually explicit photos and videos - into cash.

    But OnlyFans isn’t the golden goose of the gig economy. The vast majority of creators make very little money. And then there’s Annie. So how much does she make? And what exactly does she have to do for it?

This lady proves herself a disappointment. A privileged person in every way. A high flying privileged woman in a very superficial profession. And still complains for unfortunately not being able to conceive a female offspring. And oh the selective denial of science that gender is apparently not determined in the womb. Never-mind the genetic factors, chromosomes etc. the imagined prejudice against Asians. I am a Filipino , similar physical characteristics as an Indonesian person and this prejudice she’s talking about is news to me. How much could she have been suffering from it from her paid for business class flight to Paris? Utterly ridiculous. Mia, I love listening to you, I think you are highly intelligent but This guest was a head scratcher.
