|Aria Giovanni is an actress and nude model who was Penthouse Pet for the month of September 2000. She has modeled in a range of photographic styles, and has also had roles in television shows.|
Giovanni was born in California, and grew up in Orange County. Her father has Italian-Yugoslavian heritage, and her mother has French, German, Irish, and American Indian heritage.
She attended a junior college in San Diego majoring in biochemistry, while waitressing and tutoring in science and mathematics on the side, when she decided to enter modeling. She started answering newspaper ads in October, 1999, and soon began appearing on various amateur pornography websites such as Amateur Pink, Busty Amateurs, Seductive Amateurs, Darker Pleasures and BubbleGirls.
In 2000, Aimee Sweet introduced Giovanni to glamour photographer Suze Randall, who in late May of that year shot photos of Giovanni which appeared in the September issue of Penthouse magazine. At the same time, she also appeared on the web site Bomis, posing clothed for a Ferrari giveaway contest.
Around the same time that she shot the Penthouse photos, she transferred to University of California, San Diego as a junior transfer student intending to major in biochemistry and minor in English writing. However, she opted not to attend as she felt that the workload would not leave time for modeling; "I knew I could always come back to school, but I probably couldn't come back to modeling."
In 2001, she played Monica Snatch in the movie Survivors Exposed, a parody of the Survivor television series. She also appeared on the TV dating show Shipmates (Episode dated November 16, 2001).
Giovanni has appeared in bondage, fetish, amateur, glamour and artistic photography. Giovanni 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. In the early part of her modeling career she made extensive use of sex toys in masturbation videos, which she has since stopped doing.
