Ana Lucia Barbosa, aka Amazon Cinthia, earns a living ‘dwarfing’ people. Here she is seen lifting friend Michelle Falsetta to show off her incredible strength
At a staggering 6ft 8in Ana earns her living by dominating, squashing and wrestling willing clients
inthia, 30, said: ‘Some men like certain things that other women don’t do or aren’t brave enough to do – I am brave and do it.
‘There’s no shortage of willing clients happy to pay me to sit on them, wrestle them, pick them up and generally boss them around.
‘Finding this line of work has changed my life – and I’m now able to provide for my family.’
Growing up in rural Brazil Cinthia was tormented for her height and never felt comfortable in her own skin.
She said: ‘I dropped out of school when I was 15, I couldn’t stand people looking at me and calling me ‘giraffe.
‘I was depressed and I never really liked myself.
‘I played basketball in my teens but after a bad knee injury I didn’t know how I was going to get on in life.’
After being approached by a stranger in a bar who introduced her to the world of amazon modeling, Cinthia finally found her calling.

And as one of the tallest amazon models in the industry, she was soon inundated with requests for domination sessions, charging $300 (£190) for one-hour visits.
But despite the suggestive nature of her work, Cinthia insists nothing sexual ever takes place between her and her clients.
She said: ‘There is never any sex involved. Although some clients do get aroused, it’s not about sex as much as domination and submission.’
She even claims to have once made a staggering £6,200 ($10,000) in a single day by accepting financial donations from adoring ‘slaves’.
She said: ‘I get more requests than I can fulfill. This job has taken me all over the world. I get the most requests from Japan, then New York, then London.
‘I have slaves all over the world who beg me to let them serve me. They pay my rent and one even gave me a car.
‘Some men want to be roughed up and manhandled, others cuddled and smothered. Some just want to give me their money.
‘Before I discovered this world I didn’t know there were all these men who liked tall women.
‘Many men feel self-conscious about their height and dream of being with a very tall woman, and I make that happen for them in our sessions.
‘I used to think that I would never have a boyfriend or get married. Today I know that there are loads of men out there who like tall women.’
However, the job comes with certain challenges that are potentially dangerous, mainly for Cinthia’s clients.
Cinthia said: ‘When I first started and was still learning the ropes I ended up breaking two ribs on a client after sitting on him.
‘He didn’t warn me that he had a health problem and he had to stay home from work for two months because of me.
‘Now when I start a session I always ask clients about their fitness and their health.
‘I ask if they have any respiratory problems or if they faint easily. Some men like smothering and I don’t want them to faint.’
However, despite the constant adulation, Cinthia dreams of finding love and settling down.
She said: ‘I have had lots of wedding proposals and men saying, ‘I love you’, but I don’t really know if they love me or if they love my height.
‘I want to find someone who loves me for me. Until then I’m happy with this job.
‘It has changed my life and my mother’s. I never dreamed I could do this.’
