Early career

Amber Lynn was born and raised in southern California. She is of Native American Choctaw Indian, Black Irish or (Spanish/Irish) and Lithuanian descent.

She came from a family of 6 children, but had a sister who died in infancy due to heart disease. This caused the collapse of her family and her parents divorced, she was placed in foster care at 3 years old until she was 8, when it was discovered there was physical and emotional abuse going on in the foster home. The same year she was finally reunited with her mother, she lost her mother in a car accident, witnessing her death as a small child barely surviving the accident herself and suffering severe head injuries. Later her father died of heart disease, leaving her to be raised by her stepmother and brothers. She also has an older brother who later gained fame in the adult industry as Buck Adams. As a teenager, she began modeling in bikini ads and hot body contests and later got involved in the club scene in Los Angeles, where she met Althea Flynt, wife of "Hustler" magazine publisher Larry Flynt and famed Hustler photographer Clive McClean. Before long, Lynn was in high demand posing for layouts in "Hustler" as well as other "men's magazines" such as "Penthouse, High Society," and "Club", and was extremely popular amongst fans of all major men's magazines.

Along the way she was introduced to William Margold head of PAW, [http://www.pawfoundation.org Protecting Adult Welfare] foundation, who suggested to her that she had a huge career in front of her in the adult film industry should she choose and predicted that she would be the next big overnight sensation. He then nicknamed her "The blonde panther" (which is how he still affectionately refers to her today), patted her on the head and sent her on her way, on his recommendation.

She entered the adult film industry in 1984, after her friend Ginger Lynn Allen (aka Ginger Lynn). [cite web|url= http://www.avn.com/performer/articles/4544.html|title= Amber Lynn Returns In Three Comeback Movies|accessdate= 2008-01-26|author= David Sullivan|date= 2008-01-25|publisher= AVN] The two friends, along with Porsche Lynn, who entered the industry some time later, became known among the most successful female porn stars of the 1980s.

Her first movie was Personal Touch part 3, by Bobby Hollander. Lynn's early on-screen sexual exploits included primarily vaginal intercourse and oral sex, as well as lesbian scenes. She starred in several movies with exceptionally well endowed men, and did a scene involving double vaginal penetration. In her early career, she did not do anal sex. She was known for her stand out physical form and strong screen presence. She had a long-term live in-relationship with already seasoned actor Jamie Gillis, who also managed her early career and a few other noted relationships with well known players. She has been engaged but never married.

Retirement

In 1989 she began feature dancing in upscale gentlemen's clubs and making personal appearances across the United States and in Canada. She had record attendance numbers on the dance circuit, even breaking Marilyn Chambers record at The Mitchell Brothers theatre in San Francisco, where members of the band Aerosmith were among fans in her audience. Therefore her earnings skyrocketed, and she soon decided that she preferred "live entertainment" to filmmaking and spent many years pursuing her dancing success.

Hustler released a full collectors line of trading cards using shots from her famous layouts, stating that she was arguably the highest paid and most sought after adult entertainer of all time and that she was respected as much for her business sense as her incredible beauty. She traveled the country making appearances at Hustler stores nationwide, signing autographs to hour-long lines of waiting fans.

After years, however, the number of porn stars on the dancing circuit exploded, reducing the amount of money any one could earn for each appearance. Lynn moved back to Los Angeles and returned to posing for mainstream magazines such as Arena, being shot by famed mainstream photographer David La Chappelle, as well as Suze Randall, co-hosting a radio show on Ksex with Ginger Lynn for a while and keeping herself busy hosting, MC'ing and making personal appearances on such TV shows as "The Man Show" and "How to be a pornstar" with Ron Jeremy.

In 1992, Lynn dedicated her 28th birthday party at the prestigious Bel Age hotel in Beverly Hills, California to a benefit in honor of The Youth Aids Foundation of Los Angeles, an organization providing housing and assistance for helping runaways get off the streets and teenagers afflicted with HIV which was about to go under.cite news | first=David | last=Fox | coauthors= | title=Adult-Film Star's Party to Benefit Youth AIDS Group Fund-raising: A birthday bash for Amber Lynn will raise money for a struggling organization. | date=1992-08-28 | publisher= | url =http://pqasb.pqarchiver.com/latimes/access/61619903.html?dids=61619903:61619903&FMT=ABS&FMTS=ABS:FT&type=current&date=Aug+28%2C+1992&author=DAVID+J.+FOX&pub=Los+Angeles+Times+(pre-1997+Fulltext)&edition=&startpage=2&desc=Adult-Film+S | work =Los Angeles Times | pages = | accessdate = 2008-03-21 | language = ] Bankrolling the event with thousands of dollars of her own money, she enlisted friends adult super star Victoria Paris and others and then brought the entire who's who of the adult industry together for a gala that would raise funds to keep the suffering organization afloat. In the eleventh hour, as the organization began to back out due to its discomfort of the association with the porn industry and under the pressure of its mainstream supporters such as Aaron Spelling, Lynn sprang into action again fighting for her right to donate what turned out to be in the thousands of dollars for the cause, to the grateful suffering organization. The August 1992 Los Angeles Times quoted her statement on page two; "lets give them food clothing and shelter and we'll worry about role models later" alongside a shot of her holding a small infant girl, dressed in a formal gown. This was a breakthrough moment for how the adult industry was viewed by the mainstream concerning its crossover involvement in children's organizations, as never before had a children's organization knowingly accepted support from the adult entertainment industry.cite news | first=Mark | last=Ehrman | coauthors= | title=Exposing the Stars | date=1992-09-04 | publisher= | url =http://pqasb.pqarchiver.com/latimes/access/61637547.html?dids=61637547:61637547&FMT=ABS&FMTS=ABS:FT&type=current&date=Sep+4%2C+1992&author=MARK+EHRMAN&pub=Los+Angeles+Times+(pre-1997+Fulltext)&edition=&startpage=5&desc=Exposing+the+S | work =The Los Angeles Times | pages = | accessdate = 2008-03-21 | language = ]

Today, she is a staunch supporter of children's charities and was recently in attendance again in support at Eddie's Kids, an adult industry owners children's benefit. She says that she is a proud Democrat and supported for Hillary Clinton for president.

Return to adult films

She returned on a limited basis to adult films in the mid-1990s. Several of her roles were lesbian scenes or non-sexual parts at this time her earnings for a girl girl screen performance were the highest she had ever earned in previous films, in the six figures. She made three on screen appearances in Sin City, Babe Watch 3 & 4 and Vivid's Where the Boys Aren't 6. She turned down a subsequent exclusive contract offer from Vivid Video to perform again in boygirl movies to respect the wishes of an exclusive relationship that was uncomfortable with her performing in sex scenes with other men in films. She went back to doing what she knew best and loved most feature dancing and touring the gentlemen's club circuit. In 1993 she was the guest of honor and the recipient of the prestigious Hot dor' lifetime achievement award at the Cannes Film festival in France to an attendance of thousands. On stage through tears she exclaimed "I have never had any award mean so very much as this one as it is an acknowledgment of my peers and my fans of a job well done and that means a lot to me and I thank you all."

In the late 1990s she broke off an engagement to a man not in the industry whom she thought at the time to be the love of her life. Then while she was out on the road touring clubs with her dance show her home was broken into and severely burglarized. It was suspected by police that it had been an inside job; this devastated her as her closest inner circle were people she had treated as her own family for years.

By 1999, her struggles with drug abuse and alcoholism had severely damaged both her personal life and her career and Lynn dropped out of the business again to clean herself up, pursue her education and rebuild her family bonds. In 2000 she successfully faced her personal dependency issues and now works with and supports other women facing the same types of challenges today. "I am and will always be there for other women in the industry and I truly believe It is absolutely possible that you can be a healthy emotionally balanced person and run a successful career in adult entertainment, just like any other entertainment industry". While in her early porn career Lynn refrained from breast enlargement surgery. However, by the time she returned to porn in the 1990s, her modest B-cup breasts had been enhanced to a 34 D.

Sometime after her second retirement,when she began making films again. Some of these films were more extreme than those that she had done earlier in her career, including scenes containing interracial and anal sex and extreme lesbian bondage including leg and foot fetish, pantyhose and stocking magazines and videos.

In 2008 she made another resurgence releasing new products with several companies in the business including Wicked Pictures, Evasive Angles and Evolution, hitting the dance circuit with a new show and releasing a 2008 comeback tour commemorative poster, "In the Presence of a Legend," saying "I am a performer in my heart and soul, I love my fans and they seem to love me right back".

Recovery

On April 19, 2000 she faced her dependency issues and now works with and supports other women facing the same types of challenges today." I am and will always be there for my sisters, its just who I am as a person" " It is absolutely possible that you can be a healthy emotionally balanced person and run a successful career in adult entertainment, just like any other entertainment industry." Due to her dedication and commitment to her health and fitness regime, it is often said that she looks far better in 2008 than ever before.
