There aren't many people, let alone adult princesses, who can boast the dizzying
mix of ethnicities that make up the unquestionably gorgeous looks of Aria
Giovanni. It's fair to say that there is no-one quite like her thanks
to the mixed heritage that both of her parents have handed down to her, and some
would say that there will never be anyone quite like her. But fairly early on
in her life it looked as though for a while she wouldn't make it to a career of
After a fairly shy and retiring childhood, in an incident not dissimilar to
that which befell Hollywood actress Drew Barrymore, Aria fell
into a chronic drink and drugs problem before she became a teenager. As a result,
she entered rehab for over 2 years in an attempt to clean herself up. Whilst
there though, she was able start high school-level classes in an undemanding
atmosphere and really regain her standing.
After high school she entered modelling after successfully majoring in biochemistry
- not the only adult star to do so, in fact. Her early forays into adult entertainment
are not something she often discusses, and perhaps understandably so. As a performer
who has built a career on the back of fetish modelling as well as highly sexualised
but artistic lesbian and masturbation action, it's not surprising that she tends
not to discuss some rarely seen but highly sought after early hardcore performances
for Bubblegirls. For that site she was called Kennedy. It was when she reverted
to Aria Giovanni that her career was truly launched.
She wouldn't be working in such circles for long and by the end of 2000 she
was working for Suze Randall courtesy after being introduced
by her close friend Aimee
Sweet, who was also at the time relatively new to the industry.
Aria regretted her early work but instead of beating herself
up about it, she threw herself headlong into more glamour-centred circles. The
meeting with Randall would yield almost immediate dividends for her as one of
the shoots led to her being named as the Penthouse Pet Of The Month
for September 2000.
Aria Giovanni was so thrilled with this initial breakthrough
that she decided to put aside further studies to pursue modelling full-time,
believing that she could return to education later in her life. The decision
would prove to be an incredibly successful one. By the end of 2001, she would
be the star of several Andrew
Blake movies, including one title that was created directly in
her honour and thus named Aria. To make such an extraordinary
breakthrough in such a small space of time was a testament to a unique beauty
that even beguiled photographers out there who had seen more talents than you
could possibly imagine.
Indeed, Aria still remains her favourite movie of hers to
date, thus cementing a mutually successful professional relationship with Blake.
All the while, her mainstream profile began to rise - nothing too dramatic,
but occasional dalliances thanks to the amusing erotic spoofs 13 Erotic
Ghosts and Survivors Exposed, both of which have received
numerous airings on British satellite TV, helped her profile. An appearance
on the dating show Shipmates capped a more-than-satisfying
2001 for her.
Since then, she has become one of the most recognisable faces in nude modelling,
with she herself admitting that artistic nude photography was her personal favourite.
Despite titles such as Aria Giovanni Stocking Tease and Aria
Giovanni Foot Tease playing with her undoubted ability in those respective
fetishes, she was keen not to be classed as a fetish or glamour model. Rumours
that she was moving away from active performing were dispelled when she appeared
in two more Andrew Blake projects in 2007.
She herself is now looking to enter the market of the downloading of adult
movies with a pay-per-view DRM site which she is hoping to make the 'iTunes
of adult entertainment'. She has also hinted at a step behind the camera
as well as possibly launching a line of posters and calendars of herself, not
to mention the continued shooting of new content for her extremely successful
adult site. Like Drew Barrymore, it all came good in the end for her.
