Make money sexting? Now that’s a side hustle you don’t hear every day.
A few weeks ago, I found out from a friend of a friend that you can earn a great living by just chatting with people online. Yes, it was really a friend of a friend and that friend was not me.
While I don’t know exactly how much she makes or what company she works for, she did mention that she makes $1 – $2 per minute (and I know her rent is $2000/month), so I’d have to assume she makes decent money. Sexting is her one and only job.
Her conversation with one of her clients seemed almost too normal. It was “hi how was your day” kind of normal.
Sexting is nothing like traditional phone sex or cam sex. Sexting is a lot milder since all you have to do is talk and flirt in a controlled environment.
Needless to say, I was intrigued. I always thought sexting for money required you to use your webcam and do other questionable things.
Are you intrigued? Want to learn how to make money sexting? Here is what you need to know if you want to learn how to make money sexting:

This should go without saying that you need to be at least 18 years old to apply. Some companies and services do require you to be at least 21 and sometimes even 25.
These companies want the extra cushion to cover themselves legally. I will be sure to point out the companies with a higher age requirement below as I go through them.
For verification, you need to send in a screenshot of your Driver’s license or passport, and the photo must be clear.
Why Would Someone Pay For Sexting?
The million-dollar question. No, it’s not because they’re creeps!
Sure, there are creeps. But there are also a lot of shy people out there that feel lonely and unwanted. They might be afraid of rejections and at least this way, they know someone will talk to them.
Some people might just use the site for a fun connection with someone or to fill an emotional void. Everybody has a story and you get paid to listen to theirs.

How to Avoid Scams and Protect Yourself?
1. Never Pay Up Front
If a site asks you to pay upfront to work for them, exit the site immediately!
One of the biggest scams about online work is that they ask you to pay upfront for equipment cost (headset, phone, etc) and administrative or startup fee.
You should be able to get your own equipment and never ever pay for administrative/startup fee.
2. Read Reviews
You should definitely do your due diligence and research the company by reading reviews online. The key is to filter isolated incidents. If you keep seeing the same complaints over and over again, then it’s definitely a red flag.
When I read Yelp reviews of a new restaurant, I can tell right away if a review is fake or not. Those are pretty easy to spot since most of them don’t even have a profile picture or have only one or two reviews under their names. The reviews are often short and without any pictures claiming how it’s the best food they’ve ever tasted.
3. Privacy & Protection
You can never be too careful when it comes to the internet. Although most sites do take measures to protect your information, it is still up to you to make sure it is protected. Even big sites like Facebook and Twitter still get hacked.
Do not send your pictures or videos even if they offer more money or tell you that they feel a connection. This only applies to people that just want to chat and want to stay anonymous.
NEVER use your own personal phone number as there is a way for people to look up and find your address. I personally use Google number, it sends the message directly to my personal number, but without the other person having my real number.
Use third-party texting apps such as TextPlus, WhatsApp, Line, etc.
If the person asks you to move the conversation to Skype or Facebook to prevent the company from taking a cut, say NO right away. The company’s platform is your safest bet.
4. Check for Secure Sites
This is important because if the site is not secure, it means whatever information you disclose to the site is not safe or secure.
This blog is secure and this is how you can check. There is a padlock next to the URL (web address) and if you hover or click on it, it will say “secure connection”.
This also applies to when you’re shopping online. Before you enter your credit card information, make sure the site is secure.

Phrendly is a community that allows you to browse for potential people to chat with via phone app or laptop. They have a response rate of 93%. I wrote an in-depth article about Phrendly if you want to learn more about it.

You can choose to offer group, private, and exclusive chats and you get paid for every minute you work.
FlirtBucks is one of the most popular chat websites that pays you to chat mainly because you’re in full control and it’s fairly PG13.

You can chat with multiple people at the same time and can stop the conversation at any time you’re feeling uncomfortable.

Although you will get to know them more on a deeper level, it is still prohibited for you to reveal your personal information.
MyGirlFund is like GoFundMe where girls can also set up a profile for themselves to raise money for something they need such as student loans, mortgage, a new car, etc. There is no limit to what you can ask. The site claims that their users can make about $40,000 per year.

The pay rates are 15 cents per text message, 50 cents per minute for voice calls, and 40% of the cut for video chatting.
Another way you can make money is by uploading videos and pictures to sell to your viewers. They can only view them after they make a purchase. If your customers like you, they can also pay you through tips.
