She was a high school teacher who harboured aspirations to become a model.
As part of her modelling career, Miss Olivia Sprauer, 26, did hot bikini shots.
The freshman English teacher at Florida's Martin County High School hoped that the photos would remain a secret.
But it didn't. Her principal obtained one of her photos in which she struck a sultry pose in a bikini. Her teaching career went out of the window.
Since her sacking a few months ago, Miss Sprauer, who also goes by the name Victoria James, has been courted by lingerie companies, trade shows and Hustler magazine.
Then she was adamant that she would not pose for the magazine.
She told US news website Huffington Post in May: "I don't do spread-eagle shots for the camera, so I don't think Hustler is going to work out."
All her insistence that she would not pose for the adult magazine did not work, Mail Online reported.
She is now being featured on the cover of the magazine's March 2014 edition, reports said.
Miss Sprauer "graces the cover and indulges her inner Lolita" in the issue, a press release from the magazine said.
She is the star in the "Bikini Teacher's" 14-page pictorial.
"If getting naked betters my life, that's a positive thing for me," she said, according to the release.
But what made her go back on her decision?
"Their persistence in hiring me" was what coaxed her into finally accepting the magazine's offer, Miss Sprauer told HuffPost.
"They were incredibly professional and cordial when handling every step of the process."
Her story came into the spotlight when parents and students of the Florida school, who were upset over her resignation, sent in anonymous complaints to the media. The story went viral after it was picked up by HuffPost and other media outlets.
The extra attention hasn't been all good for the English major-turned-viral star. She said: "Unfortunately, I have been contacted by some shady people I've worked with, who are trying to make a name for themselves by attempting to malign my reputation."
She also has a website, MissVictoriaJames.com, and her various pictures are featured on the website Model Mayhem.
