    If you've heard of the Burning Man Festival then you've probably envisaged all sorts.

    After all, this year's event featured various wild activities including group orgasm sessions, daily whippings and naked oil wrestling.

    But one woman claimed it's not all as it seems – as heading to the festival completely changed her life.

    Just days ago, it was reported the event was hit by severe flooding, dinosaur shrimp and even an Ebola outbreak.

    The Ebola whispers turned out to be fiction, but the panic and desperation exhibited seemingly summed up the mood as the week-long community campout left 73,000 revellers stranded throughout the event grounds.

    Now Valentina Bellucci has separated fact from fiction as tales of chaos and calamity continue to dominate the headlines surrounding the mud-caked event.

    She said: "As I left Burning Man, my heart was still pounding with the memories of an incredible experience that had just unfolded in the vast Nevada desert.

    "It had been an adventure that not only taught me the importance of radical self-reliance, but how to function as part of a community, especially under the most critical of conditions.

    "A massive desert flooding hit on Friday, and strong rain turned the dusty desert into a muddy quagmire.

    "It was in this moment of crisis that I witnessed the true essence of Burning Man – the same community that had been revelling in self-expression just hours earlier now came together.

    "Neighbours helped neighbours, strangers became friends and the spirit of cooperation thrived.

    "We improvised shelters, shared limited supplies and worked tirelessly to mitigate the flooding."

    Valentina also said social media became "meaningless" as there was no signal at all in the desert.

    For the first time in a long time she said she felt liberated in being away from the "constant digital noise".

    Instead she found serenity in the simplicity of life, and she enjoyed her time sharing stories around a campfire, cooking meals with new pals and dancing under the stars.

    She even found some time to play muddy baseball too.

    "The desert flooding was an unexpected reset button for all of us," she added.

    "It forced us to confront our own vulnerability and reliance on modern conveniences.

    "It taught us that true happiness could be found in the most basic human connections, and in the act of helping one another.

    "I knew that this experience would change my life forever – it had shown me the power of community, the beauty of self-expression and the joy of disconnecting from the virtual world to fully engage with the real one.

    "It was a transformative journey that’s inspired me to seek a more meaningful and connected life that embraces the values of the communal support I had witnessed in the desert."

    Valentina is available to work as a model via Coxxx Models.
