Adult-film star Amber Lynn was born Laura Allen in Orange, CA, in 1964 (not 1963, as is often mistakenly listed) and raised there.
In the early 1980s she was a bikini and figure model in Los Angeles and part of the notorious Sunset Strip club scene when she met Althea Flynt, wife of "Hustler" magazine publisher Larry Flynt. She did some photo spreads for Hustler, taken by famed photographer Clive McLean, then did shoots for "Chic", "Penthouse", "Playboy", "High Society" and "Club" men's magazines. She soon got into the adult-film business, debuting in Bobby Hollander's Personal Touch III. She spent the next few years in the adult-film business, then crossed over to become a featured dancer on the "gentleman's club" circuit--the first adult-film star to do so. She was earning up to $25,000 a week performing in clubs all over the US and Canada, to packed houses.
In addition to her adult work, she has also had parts in several non-adult Hollywood productions, such as 52 Pick-Up with Roy Scheider and directed by John Frankenheimer, and Evils of the Night with John Carradine and Julie Newmar, and has appeared on The Man Show with Adam Carolla and Jimmy Kimmel. She is a member of the Adult Video News (AVN) Hall of Fame and received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Free Speech Coalition (FSC). She has been a vocal opponent of the Los Angeles "Safer Sex in the Adult-Film Industry" initiative, which would mandate condom use in adult films shot in Los Angeles County. Since 1992 she has been involved in the Youth AIDS Foundation of Los Angeles, the first charity to accept contributions from the adult industry.
Amber Lynn has been a major part of the adult-film industry for almost 30 years and is one of the most recognizable names--and faces--inside and outside the business. She has appeared in over 350 films and more than 200 mens magazines and hosts her own radio show, "Amber Lynn Rock-N-SeXXXy-Uncensored", on LATalkRadio.com.
