Stoya (Jessica Stojadinović in real life) was born on 15 June 1986, in Wilmington North Carolina. She is of mixed descent, born of a Scottish father and a Serbian mother, which makes for her very unique, hot and sexy look. “Stoya” has been her nickname even before entered the world of modelling that would eventually lead to her present pornographic career, and is a shortened version of her family name. Her father worked in IT, and this gave her access to a lot of gadgets, electronics, and gaming equipment which developed her love for technology, as well as for sci-fi books. She was home schooled, and graduated before the age of 16. A brief stay in Delaware College of Art & Design led to relocating to Philadelphia, where she worked on odd jobs as secretary, distributor for fliers, and as a go-go dancer.
