Aria Giovanni is an American model and erotic actress whose photos are spoofed to commit scams
Aria Giovanni was born on November 3, 1977 in Long Beach, California. Her real name is Cindy Renee Preto. She is the middle child of three siblings.
Growing up, she was shy and struggled 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.

Her photos are mostly solo or implied lesbian content. “I don’t like to be completely shaved…a lot of my photography is completely natural and looks like a real girl.” She said, “I don’t do hardcore. I draw the line… I really try to portray who I am as a person who has feelings.”
