Check out our interview with LGBTQ+ OnlyFans influencer Sidney Summers who is here to break the mold and stereotypes of who an OnlyFans model is behind the scenes. With a heart as big as her OnlyFans business, this yoga-loving artist has resided in a Buddhist Monastery, assisted people struggling with addiction and was a leader with a Wilderness Therapy group helping troubled teens.
When Sidney Summers isn’t helping make the world a better place, she’s producing new content for her lucrative OnlyFans account and creating new artwork she sells on the side. Initially stumbling into the OnlyFans world due to the pandemic, Sidney has found herself along the way and now has “a new lease on work,” feeling enjoyment about who she is and where she’s going.

Hi Sidney, please tell us a little about you?
Hi! I was born and raised in Arkansas and currently live in the beautiful city of Chicago (but I’m moving to LA very soon)! I have a psychology degree and was planning to pursue my masters in social work before my my onlyfans started eclipsing everything in my life. I have two cats, I am the oldest child and it shows, and I love yoga, nature, and making art.
Describe yourself in 3 words?
Enthusiastic, curious, uninhibited
Name one of your strengths?
I am a pretty disarming person so I find people open up to me really easily.
Best advice ever given?
Ask forgiveness, not permission.
Who has been the biggest influence on your life?
Probably my best friend Emma Magnolia! She has taught me a lot about business and enduring platonic love. We are basically life partners and support each other no matter what.
How and when did you start with OnlyFans? And describe the huge success of your Only Fans account.
I was a stripper before the pandemic, then I transitioned fully to online work when the clubs shut down. I was sort of one foot in one foot out about it all as I really don’t love being on my phone a lot, but once I started seeing the potential in it and began creating all day everyday, things really started to sky rocket! I adore my fans and their support blows me away. I had a number of 6-figure months during the pandemic, and I don’t know if conditions will ever be like that for me again, but it was an amazing time during which I was able to invest a lot towards my future that I literally never could have conceived of prior!
What is fun and rewarding about it? And what is not?
It is so rewarding making beautiful content and improving as a performer! Those are the parts of this work that keep me going, along with meeting lots of sweet people and just doing little things to make their day better. I struggle most with being present while also being in major work mode, so I just have to be sure to work when I really want to work, and relax as much as I can when able. It helps doing the most enjoyable things possible while filming–I love doing naked yoga & pole dancing, and challenging myself to fit bigger and bigger toys and cocks in my ass haha.
The most important thing when you are shooting is?
Being as present as possible! It improves the whole scene, from the dialogue to the actual fucking. I am so grateful to have so much control over my conditions as a sex worker because I am able to genuinely enjoy what I’m doing and capture that human connection.
What’s your advice for the newer models/influencers?
Research as much as you can, invest in lighting, pay attention to your fans, and do what makes you happy, not what you think you “should” be doing. Making quality content that I genuinely enjoy creating is what keeps me going!
What would you say are the greatest lessons you learned so far in this business?
I am very privileged to be able to say this, but I now know that I can literally do anything if I work hard enough. I have gained so much confidence through starting my own successful business, especially one that is based around people just enjoying my energy!
What book should every entrepreneur read?
The Power of Now by Eckhartt Tolle or Pleasure Activism by Adrienne Maree Brown. These two have been seminal in my understanding of myself and the way I run my business in accordance with my own values.
What actor/actress/model do you admire the most, and why?
Angela White is my professional icon! I hope to be half as incredible of a performer as she is one day. She’s been in the industry so long and I think she is sensational, so as an amateur I feel like I learn so much just from watching her perform!
What advice would you give to your younger self and why?
You don’t have to make your parents happy to be a good person.
What’s next for Sidney Summers in 2022?
Work work work! Moving to LA and really making this thing happen for myself.
Five years from now, where do you see yourself and your career?
I want to be at the peak of my career in 5 years,whether that’s studio work or all amateur online content. I want a deep understanding of lighting and editing by that point, at least one property that’s paid off, and to have the means to achieve my ultimate dream of living on a communal farm with the homies 🙂
You are followed by so many people. How do you feel about that pressure of doing always the right thing, and encourage people to follow their dreams?
I just follow my intuition! I know that any and everything could disappear tomorrow so I do whatever feels right each day, and I think that in and of itself is inspiring to others. But at the end of the day my only job is to do what feels right to me–so if other people fuck with that they’re welcome to the party!
I bet you get millions of it, but what are the best and worst Instagram DM pickup lines you received so far?
SOOOO many!!! I always giggle when someone just sends “Pls” but my favorite was when someone misspelled hello and just sent “Hellp” hehe.
What is your favorite healthy food?
Currently, spring rolls 😀
And your favorite cheat food?
I don’t really label things as “cheat” foods–they’re just food! I fuck with potatoes any type of way and kind of can’t believe they’re considered unhealthy.
What is your own definition of happiness?
Doing what your body gives you a resounding and erotic “yes” to in every moment, whether that’s laying on the couch or masturbating or getting a degree or moving across the country.
How would your best friend describe you?
Who is your biggest beauty inspiration?
What does fashion mean to you?
Expressing the inside on the outside.
How would you explain your fashion style and what items in your closet can you not be without?
My fashion sense is pretty erratic, but I have a lot of neutrals and basics and those are my enduring favorites! But that being said I wear my fluffy lime green/light blue checkered jacket like every single day ha.
If you could meet someone living or dead, who would it be and why?
Probably Thich Nhat Hanh! He is more or less the person who inspired me to live at a buddhist monastery for awhile. I just love being around monks–they’re such an incredible living example of so many of my personal values–so it would be pretty special to be around one whose teachings have so impacted my life, especially since he recently passed away.
What do you like to watch on Tv?
Currently Euphoria! My favorite shows are the Sopranos, Succession, Atlanta, & Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
What music do you like?
I love the oldies like Yes & Steely Dan. As a former stripper I also listen to a lot of rap & R&B, and I love techno & EDM too.
Do you support any charities?
I used to work for the Arkansas Harm Reduction Project & highly recommend donating to them because it is a stellar organization providing direct access to resources for houseless folks, drug users, and sex workers.
3 things you can’t leave home without?
I almost always have my journal & some pens & markers with me.
Your Idea of a perfect Sunday?
Coffee, yoga, run, eat good, smoke a blunt, draw, cuddle my cats.
Where we can follow you?
Holiday Destination: Mexico or Berlin
Celebrity Crush: Catherine Keener & Eric Andre
Song and why?
Probably some bullshit by Drake because he got me through college and I am emotionally connected to the sound of his voice
Movie: Tetsuo Iron Man!!!
