An influencer and OnlyFans model has revealed that she and her friends wear fake engagement rings on nights out to avoid being 'harassed.'
Mikaela Testa, and her besties all wore fake engagement rings during a wild night out on holiday to stop men from coming up and pestering them on their girls night.
The 23-year-old shared the details of the scheme with her TikTok followers admitting that, even though it should be enough to just tell a man 'no', the rings worked like a charm.
Filming a mini-vlog of her girl's trip to Bali, Mikaela told her followers: "Me and my friend get so harassed by men whenever we go out to a bar, a nightclub, anything, so we bought fake engagement rings just so that we can hold up our hands and say 'f**k off'.
"And because men respect other men way more, if you're engaged to another man, they're just going to leave you alone without any drama."
For most of the night, the girls just played around and posed with their rings, but it was only a matter of time before they really had to use them to fend off unwanted attention.
It might seem a little bit disappointing that some people feel they have to resort to pretending to be engaged to another man for a guy to take a hint and walk away, but sometimes that's all that'll do the job.
And Mikaela's followers were seriously impressed with the fool-proof tactic.
"The ring idea always works!! Really good travel tip!!!" commented one viewer.
"That's actually such a good idea, I'm getting a ring rn," wrote a second.
And a third begged: "Ms girl, link where you got the engagement rings from - it's a great idea!!"
Mikaela recently made headlines after claiming she was detained by the US government after travelling from Perth to Los Angeles.
In a video that now has over 2.3 million views, she detailed how she was held 'for nearly two days in a cell' where her mobile phone was taken away from her.
She presumed that her passport had been flagged, since guards questioned her about her work on OnlyFans.
“They wanted to know if I’d ever collaborated with anyone in the US,” she recalled.
“I say 'no ma’am', and then she says I lied to her face. She pulls up a Twitter photo of me with a bunch of girls from the US, in a country that wasn’t the US.
“I said,’I thought you meant in the United States.’ It was that moment I was sent to another room where they hold people who are not there for good things.”
Eventually, she says, she was deported back to Australia.
“It was a rodeo. I was deported back to Australia, I found out an hour before," she told followers.
“When you’re deported, you’re not allowed to go back through the airport, they put you in a metal car, you get driven on the tarmac to the plane door with police officers. I was just a mess, but now I’m back in Australia."
