While most economics students dream of a career in banking or consultancy, Courtney Barnes has decided to turn her back on her training and make money by flaunting her 59 inch derriere online.

Courtney, 32, from Miami, underwent three rounds of illegal butt shots six years ago at one of the thousands of illegal ‘pumping parties’ that take place across the States.

The end product was much bigger than she expected – but now the 32-year-old cam-girl and model is using her super-sized posterior to her financial gain.

Courtney said: ‘One thing that I did learn in economics is that it’s about having a product that people want – and my product is myself right now.

‘I want to show men, women, and children that it is possible to be beautiful, smart, and have a big ass.’

Courtney, also known as Miss Miami, initially decided to have the illegal silicone injections after working as a dancer whilst studying.

She admired the curvaceous figures of other dancers and decided to enhance her own bottom using the dangerous black-market methods.

Courtney said: ‘It was a risk I was willing to take at the time and I was lucky not to have any complications.

‘I was naïve and I admit I didn’t know what I was putting in my body, but at the time a lot of women in Florida were getting it done and I found a local women who could do it.’

The injections regularly contain unknown substances as well as silicone, and are often administered by people with no medical expertise.

And if the substance is accidentally injected into a vein, it can cause death within minutes as the solution travels to the lungs.

Courtney said: ‘Many people ask me “are these injections dangerous?” And the answer is yes.

‘Even if it isn’t fatal immediately you don’t know how it is affecting your body. These are very dangerous products that are being injected.

‘I don’t know for sure what they injected me with. But when I got it, she said it was like some hydrogel, some kind of silicone that they normally put in gummy bear implants.

‘You don’t know how your body is going to react. It is still something foreign that’s in your body. It’s a gamble.

‘A close friend of mine got it removed and she ended up having to have blood transfusions and she was in the hospital for months. It was a nightmare for her.’

Courtney, who was a regular on the Miami club scene, quickly became renowned for her sixty-inch bottom.

And after pictures of her began to go viral, Courtney decided to monetize her online fame.

Courtney said: ‘I was working at a traditional office job at that time and so many pictures and videos of me were going viral just out shopping and dancing in the clubs.

‘That’s when I started to model and get myself out there. I knew how to best market myself and the success was almost overnight.’

Now Courtney has 379,000 Instagram followers and is a successful model and cam-girl.

But despite her lucrative earnings, Courtney says her huge posterior means that people don’t take her seriously and over-sexualise her.

She said: ‘My career is fun but at the same time it is really difficult for people to take you seriously when it comes to certain businesses.

‘I feel like having a really big butt or having really big boobs, you are completely over sexualized.

‘People only want to buy something sexual from you and only want to consider you in that way but I actually have a brain and I’m very business-minded.

‘People stare at me everywhere I go and not every reaction is positive. I feel like women are intimidated by me and men view me as a piece of meat.

‘I’m actually quite a shy person and being looked at constantly can make me feel uncomfortable sometimes.

‘Two times in my life I’ve had guys pumping gas at the gas station and they are watching me and they drive off with pump in their car. It’s crazy, they just lose focus.’

And as well as the negativity she feels due to endless stares and constant attention, Courtney admits her bum is starting to sag.

She said: ‘My butt does not sit up as much as it used to and I can see a little discoloration in the skin.’

Despite this, Courtney insists she will not have any further injections and although she loves her curves, she is considering getting her bottom reduced in the future.

She said: ‘The body is complex and people are even getting limbs transplanted. So I am trusting that they can figure out what to do with the booty.

‘I try not to live with the regrets – I just feel like that this is my story. I made a decision to do something that was a little risky. I wanted more and I didn’t have all the information.

‘I trusted people without knowing the full facts and I was lucky that nothing bad happened to me but I’m happy with my look and I love my body.’

And although her path from scholar to cam-girl has been unconventional, Courtney credits her studies for equipping her with the knowledge to turn her bottom into a lucrative business.

She said: ‘What I do may be different, but my product is myself right now and my bottom is basically my bread and butter.’
