Aria Giovanni is a mix of Italian, French, German, Irish, Yugoslavian and American Indian ancestry. Her measurements are 34D-26-40, and she has a navel piercing. She is the middle child of three siblings, and growing up she was shy and had a hard time in social situations. “I was never considered popular or one of the pretty girls in school.”
In high school, Aria Giovanni said she was never asked out and went unnoticed, but she did well academically and was able to skip her sophomore year and start her junior year at 14. “I wore men’s clothes and khakis. My chest was so big, I couldn’t fit into anything. I didn’t know how to wear clothes.”
At 12 she entered rehab for drug and alcohol problems. Upon getting clean, she finished high school and attended junior college in San Diego, where she majored in biochemistry. To help pay the bills, she worked as a waitress and a tutor in math and science, as well as modeling.

After answering newspaper ads in October 1999, she appeared in Internet amateur websites. But it was with Aimee Sweet’s help that Aria met photographer Suze Randall who helped launch Aria into Penthouse.
Around the same time, Aria transferred to University of California, San Diego, but eventually left in order to focus on modeling. “I knew I could always come back to school, but I probably couldn’t come back to modeling.”
Her content has been soft-core and mainly either solo or implied lesbian content. “I’m not into being slick, fully shaven…a lot of what I shoot is all-natural and you look like a real girl.” She said, “I don’t do hardcore. I draw the line…I really try to portray who I am [on the website] as a person more. That I am a real person, that I have feelings.”
