|Biography: Amber Lynn was born and raised in southern California. As a teenager, she got involved in the club scene in Los Angeles, where she met Althea Flynt, wife of Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt. Before long, Lynn was posing for layouts in Hustler as well as other "men's magazines" such as Penthouse. She entered the adult film industry in 1983, after her friend Ginger Lynn Allen (aka Ginger Lynn) did the same. The two friends, along with Porsche Lynn, became known as the "three Lynns" and were among the most successful female porn stars of the 1980s.
Lynn's 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 few scenes involving double penetration. In her early career, she did not do anal sex. She got her older brother (porn actor Buck Adams) into the porn industry, and the two kept the fact that they were siblings hidden until they were scheduled to perform a scene together, at which point they confessed.
Although Lynn was not directly affected by the Traci Lords underage-porn scandal in 1986, the episode shook her confidence in the business. She had also been deeply hurt by the 1984 suicide of friend Shauna Grant, and left adult films.
She began dancing and making personal appearances in Canada with adult film actress Tracey Adams, with whom she was involved at the time in a lesbian relationship. She soon decided that she preferred "live entertainment" to filmmaking.
After a few years, however, the number of porn stars on the dancing circuit exploded, reducing the amount of money any could earn for each appearance. Lynn moved back to Los Angeles and returned to posing for magazines.
She returned to adult films in the mid 1990s, but was unable to regain her earlier level of success. Several of her roles were lesbian scenes or non-sexual parts. By 1999, her struggles with drug abuse and alcoholism had severely damaged both her personal life and her career. She and Adams had ended their long-term relationship, and Lynn dropped out of the business again to clean herself up.
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 at least a D.
Soon after her second retirement, reportedly in need of money, 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 anal sex (which she had previously refused to do) and extreme lesbian bondage (including spanking and abuse). She still appears in films from time to time, but her involvement is usually limited to one sex scene. Soon after, she can be seen at multiple different pornography sites on the internet.|
