About Amber Amidala
“I’m introverted and shy at first, but I really open up once you get to know me,” says Amber Amidala, 22, a permanent makeup artist, massage therapist and online content creator from Santa Rosa, California. “I’m down-to-earth and humble.” But at times Amber will gladly toss those traits aside. “I feel most comfortable in front of a camera while naked,” the 5-foot-2 tattoo-and-piercing enthusiast fesses up. “It’s empowering!” Amber delves into a pair of her favorite pastimes: “I play some sort of video game on a daily basis, and I’m very involved in my local metal scene. My musical tastes are a bit all over the place, from Spite, Degrader and In Hearts Wake to Pouya and $uicideboy$.” Amber adds, “I just finished reading The Ethical Slut: A Practical Guide to Polyamory, Open Relationships and Other Freedoms in Sex and Love. I’m not terribly monogamous, and my sexual orientation is a tricky thing. I like who I like regardless of genitals or gender. I’m definitely into passionate, intimate sex, and I absolutely love putting my split tongue to use while sucking dick.” Amber is also a staunch sex worker advocate. “I’m passionate about the full decriminalization of the consensual sex trade,” she asserts. “Criminal penalties bring harm to workers of every stripe, especially those most vulnerable—members of the LGBT+ community and people of color—while fostering violence and exploitation.” —Photos by Tony F.
