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 refused to perform in interracial scenes, and 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 film making.
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 was inducted into the XRCO Hall of Fame in 1995.
