Lifeboat crews were scrambled to rescue a woman who became trapped in a cave while taking half-naked photos to share online.
Michaela Ogilvie was making content for an adult entertainment site at Dumpton Gap in Ramsgate when she realised her "stupid" mistake as the tide came in.
Rescue crews rushed to the scene after she was forced to call 999 for help.
Ms Ogilvie told KentOnline: "When I saw the tide coming in I thought 'how could I be so stupid?'.
"I couldn't get out of the cove either way - the sea had come completely in.
"I looked at the cliffs, wondering if I could climb up.
"Then I looked back in the cave thinking 'if I stay in there it will fill up with water and I might drown'."
The 32-year-old called for help as the water crept closer, and just over 20 minutes later Ramsgate lifeboat crews came to her rescue.
Ms Ogilvie, who recently spoke to KentOnline about ditching social work to make explicit content for OnlyFans, added: "The wait felt like forever, even though it was so quick.
"When they turned up in that little orange boat the relief was unreal.
"The crew were amazing and so friendly.
"I have huge respect for them and I hope people can learn from my mistake."
The Ramsgate RNLI confirmed it was called to a person cut off by the tide inside one of the caves shortly before 2pm on Tuesday.
A spokesperson added: "Our inshore lifeboat managed to get close enough to get the casualty onboard and brought her back to the lifeboat station.
"We advise people to check our Facebook page to see the tide times before going out onto the beach."
