Christina Stennett (Formerly Christina Cicchelli) is a Sex Coach, Sex Work Consultant, writer, and artist. Her practice is the result of over 6 years of professional experience in the adult industry and as a fetish coach. Her writings not only reveal her inner thoughts as a former sex worker, but offer a transformative look into the life of fetishism and her passions for play.
In 2006, Christina first began to make waves in the adult industry as Simone Valentino. She started her porn career in Joe Gallant’s Avenue X and in that same year played lead in the ethno-erotic film Afrodite Superstar. Christina also landed a lead role in Audacia Ray’s The Bi Apple, a sexy romp around one of NYC’s infamous sexhouses, and for this role she won a Feminist Porn Award for Best New Star.
Both during and after her brief stint in movies, Christina continued to penetrate erotic psyches in two of New York City’s professional bdsm studios. When she took a hiatus from the industry altogether, she nourished her literary talents by writing essays and stories. Her words found sanctuary in $pread Magazine, an accomplished resource guide written for sex workers by sex workers. She was a repeated contributor and columnist for Media Whore, which commented on sex worker-related news in pop culture.
Christina was also well known for her blog, A Fantastic Nightmare, where she wrote about her experiences as a professional domme, as well as essays about feminism, fetish, and sexuality. As a self-proclaimed fetish coach, Christina began to work closely with couples and men who needed advice and guidance on living a fetish lifestyle. Her podcast, Date With a Fetish Coach, received over 100,000 downloads and hundreds of subscribers!
In 2010, Christina returned as Luna Londyn, escort and companion with a fetish specialty. Over time, she has transitioned to what most awakened and aroused her – kink! In January 2011, Christina combined her skills as a professional domme with her experiences as a fetish coach to create The Fetishette, a coach and companion for intense adult play sessions. In 2012, Christina earned her Bachelors Degree in Forensic Psychology at John Jay College of Criminal Justice.
Christina has read her work at Sex Literati and The Red Umbrella Project. She has also been interviewed by Time Out New York and has spoken at Yale about her experiences in the adult industry.
