CAIRNS, Australia — The 2022 Australian Adult Industry Awards named Zak Ozbourne developer of the year for his renowned work in the global adult entertainment industry. An entrepreneur and tech executive above all else, Ozbourne shared with YNOT his joy that his recent accolades weren’t limited to his work as a developer, but extended to one of his prized creations, as well. Ozbourne is one of the creative minds behind Exclusv.Life, the Australian-built platform akin to London-based OnlyFans.
Exclusv.Life, in addition to Ozbourne’s honor, won best adult website for 2022. Ozbourne and his team developed the platform as a potential solution for models and adult creators looking for new channels to monetize their content.
“Exclusv.Life is social media redefined,” Ozbourne said. “Think of it as your traditional social media like Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, you can post statuses, stories, photos, and videos for other people to follow, like, and comment on posts and content.”
Unlike Instagram or Twitter, Ozbourne proudly calls Exclusv.Life “a lot more liberal.”
“Imagine having thousands of followers and hundreds of posts all deleted because of a bit too much bum,” Ozbourne added. “That is definitely not with Exclusv.Life. You can post whatever you want and not worry about having your account locked or shadow-banned as long as it fits within our community guidelines.”
Asked about the current performance of the platform, Ozbourne said Exclusv.Life is “growing rapidly with more creators and users joining every day. Currently, there are approximately 6000 users/members and 300 active creators.”
According to Exclusv.Life and Ozbourne, their premium platform is the “next-generation online content monetization platform giving you the control to your internet presence to the next level.” It is their belief that “all creators should be rewarded for their hard work and that is where Exclusv Life can support you.”
The company added that the platform is “committed to delivering a high-quality service to our content creators, to keep trying to normalize sex work, especially when it comes to the handling of sales for online content, and to keep trying to close the gap between sex work and social media.”
“Exclusv.Life has helped turn my career around,” said adult content creator Kiki Sucre. “The simple, easy-to-use interface helps me keep track of my earnings while I focus on doing what I love. Exclusv.Life really is amazing.”
