Aria Giovanni

Aria Giovanni

Aria Giovanni (born Cindy Renee Volk, November 3, 1977) is best known as a nude model and adult film actress, who was on the cover of Penthouse magazine the month of September 2000. But she is also an educated wiz-kid that excelled in specifically math and science in high school and university.

Early Life

Born in Los Angeles to a mostly Italian-American family, Giovanni has two siblings – an older sister and a younger brother. She has Italian, Yugoslavian, French, German, Irish and American Indian ancestry.

Giovanni moved to Orange County when she was an early teen, and attended school there. However, Giovanni was quite shy when she was younger; she says on her website, that she was a bit of a tomboy: “I wasn’t a normal child. I would rather watch National Geographic or read a book than watch cartoons. I wanted a microscope for Christmas when I was six and a chemistry set for my seventh birthday.”

With only one friend in high school; she would spend most of her lunch hour in the art room, and was apparently never asked out on dated. Nonetheless, she did extremely well in high school, excelling in Math and Science. Giovanni skipped her sophomore year, and started her junior year at 14 years old. Subsequently, she took her first college class when she was 15, and started high school full-time as a 16 year old.

Only completing a few courses at the local Junior College, Giovanni left California, and drove to New York when she was only 17, where she lived for five months, and then drove back to California, and landed in San Diego.

Also at this time, she met a man and continued to date him for five years (she married him at the tender age of 21, and then divorced him five weeks later.)

Nude Modeling

Giovanni began college at UCSD, while she waited tables at night. Taking a job at the college as a tutor for Chemistry, Biology, and Math, she became a teacher’s aide for the Biology department. With a very heavy school workload, she started looking for a way to make a lot of money in a short period of time, and answered ads in the newspaper for modeling in October of 1999. She spent the next six months shooting for a variety of amateur internet sites, such as Amateur Pink, Busty Amateurs, Seductive Amateurs, and BubbleGirls.

Then Giovanni met Aimee Sweet, who introduced her to Suze Randall, a celebrity nude photographer, in Los Angeles. She shot with Suze a few times before she submitted her to Penthouse magazine. Ten days after submitting, Giovanni was being interviewed and two days later she got to shoot for the cover of Penthouse magazine in 2000.

Adult Film/Television Career

She began starring in adult films in 2001, with her first film being listed as Aria. Also in 2001, Giovanni played Monica Snatch in the movie Survivors Exposed, a parody of the Survivor television series. She also appeared on the television dating show "Shipmates" (Episode dated 16 November 2001).

Giovanni has appeared in bondage, fetish, amateur, glamour and artistic photography. She has gained particular respect for being among relatively few large-chested models working in the field who have not undergone cosmetic surgery.

She has worked extensively with Andrew Blake, appearing in Girlfriends, Aria, Blondes & Brunettes, Justine, Adriana and Naked Diva. She has appeared in softcore pornographic movies, although most of her lesbian scenes involve purely implied sexual contact. Her only known hardcore pornographic appearance is on a DVD offered by BubbleGirls.com where she performs solo masturbation with hands, toys, and fisting.

Personal Life

She is married to the rock guitarist John 5, and her favorite song is “Imagine” by John Lennon.
