Early lifeEdit

Shibari was born and raised in Japan.[7] She moved to the United States at the age of 15.[8] She has also lived in the Bay Ridge, Brooklyn and Hell's Kitchen, Manhattan neighborhoods of New York City.[5] She speaks fluent Japanese and English.[1]

Shibari does not have a high school diploma because she was admitted to college early at the age of 16.[1] She graduated with a degree in marketing.[9] She claims to have a Mensa-level IQ, but states that she is not interested in becoming a member of Mensa.[10]

Shibari was once a roadie for rock bands and Broadway tours.[11] She also worked for ten years as an art director and production designer for mainstream films and television shows and left that industry during the 2007–08 Writers Guild of America strike.[12]

CareerEdit

Shibari entered the adult film industry in 2007 after sending photos of herself to The Score Group.[10] She initially used the stage name Olivia when she was working in amateur pornography.[5] The last name Shibari in her current stage name means Japanese rope bondage.[5] In June 2014, she became the first plus-size model to appear on the cover of Penthouse Forum magazine.[13][14]
