Meet the OnlyFans model who's made $2 million from sexting - and has written a book full of tips on how to do it.
“Queen of Sexting,” Amber Sweetheart, 35, wrote “The Sexting Bible: Amber Sweetheart Version,” to give readers the inside scoop on erotic SMS.
A sext is text message consisting of sexually explicit messages, photos or videos. Amber, who sexts for up to 16 hours a day and has made $2 million so far, finds them to be a great way to create intimacy.
“Sexting is fun, it’s something people should learn how to do,” said the entrepreneur from Stockholm, Sweden. If you’re lonely, you can meet someone online and start sexting. We’re so attached to our phones why not use that for some fun also?
“I think sexting, especially during the pandemic, was a fabulous way to have some intimacy over the phone when you can’t actually be physical.”

Her do’s include:
1. Be as open as you can. “I’m sure there are things I’ve said during sexting that I’d be too chicken to do in real life.”
2. Create a story. “Ask me about my day, don’t just jump into sex. A great sexting session is when you can bounce back and forth.”
3. Have patience and imagination. “You can be just as passionate and imaginative sexting as you can be in real life.”
1. Sending d*ck pics. “For a guy, the worst thing you can do is start with a d*ck pic. Ask and if you are going to send one, make it a nice one. Just don’t start with that.”
2. Don’t be aggressive or steer the conversation in a way that makes the other person uncomfortable.
3. Don’t send messages that are too long.
And how did Amber become the “Queen of Sexting?”
“Just by practicing and doing it daily. In the beginning, I was doing it for 16 hours a day,” she said. When I started my OnlyFans it was during the pandemic, and I didn’t have anyone to do content with. That’s how I developed the sexting skills because I needed to do something to stand out.”
Formerly a makeup artist, Amber initially thought OnlyFans was tacky but joined a year and a half ago after realizing the business side of it.
“It was more than showing my boobs and my ass online,” she said.
“It was creating a business strategy, learning marketing, learning to advertise. I’ve built up a huge OnlyFans on my own and I had no idea how to do any of it.”
She was also drawn by the connections she could make with fans.
“I’ve actually created some amazing and real connections with people through the sexting,” she said. "I started doing sexting because it was the easiest way for me to connect with people. I do have a few sex tapes, but it’s not based on that. My page is mostly based on the connection.”
Her sexting sessions last 30-40 minutes, earning her $200 - $1,000 each. Amber has made about $2 million since she started.
Most of her clients are men 30-45 years old from the U.S. and she’s able to sext with them in English, Spanish or Swedish. She has sexted with some women but none regularly.
Amber spends around five to eight hours a day sexting and has about 10 regular clients she calls her “boyfriends.”
“That’s kind of what they are,” she said.
“I speak to them almost every day. I know everything about their lives, and they know everything about mine. If we could meet it would be a real relationship. I do think you can develop feelings without having to physically meet because I deeply care about them, and I know they do for me.”
Amber hasn’t met up in person with any of her boyfriends for two reasons.
“One, it is what it is, and two it’s against the rules to meet up with people,” she said.“We have a closeness and it’s enough.”
Though she has intimate relationships online, Amber finds it difficult to have the same thing in real life.
“It’s been super hard to date,” she said. “I noticed guys are intimidated by me, not just by looks but by success.”
And she plans to transform her success into other business opportunities.
“The next step is a clothing line and a production company, which is going to be called Sweetheart Productions,” she said.
“I want to be shooting content with other females and help other females starting out in the industry. I want to teach women you can do it all. I do everything for my business.”
Her advice to anyone looking to get into sexting professionally is to be attentive.
“Be very attentive to the fans that you have,” she said. I try to be attentive to guys who join my page and get to know them first before trying to sext with them. The people behind the screen are still people and not just cash registers.”
