Ginger Lynn Biography

Blonde bombshell Ginger Lynn has built one of the most highly acclaimed careers in the adult industry. Over the course of her nearly four decade long career, she has had a variety of roles on set including actress, director, writer, producer, and assistant director. AVN has ranked her at #7 in a list of the 50 greatest porn stars of all time.

Ginger was born in Illinois, a sweet girl with dreams of moving out of her hometown. Her dream came true when she was 20 years old, albeit under sad circumstances. Her grandfather became very ill and Ginger moved to California to care for him after a heart attack. Following her grandfathers death, a male friend came to live with her who would eventually become her first real boyfriend. Nice as he was, Ginger supported them both financially and soon realized that she would need to make more money. She answered an ad from the World Modeling Agency in 1983. She was immediately hired to do a pictorial for Penthouse Magazine. This first modeling job brought her to the attention of the adult film industry.

Career

A few short months after her Penthouse debut, Ginger had done some more nude modeling and found it only natural to move on to the next big thing - performing in hardcore sex films. Her first performance was in "Surrender In Paradise" where she starred with Jerry Butler. Her girl next door looks made her a fast favorite in the industry and led to her becoming one of the most sought after female performers of the time. She eventually had her own line of videos through Vivid Entertainment with director Bruce Seven. She worked with all the big stars of the time, including her performance with Tom Byron in "Kinky Business", and her work in "Slumber Party" with Eric Edwards, and most notably the 6+ performances she had with porn legend John Holmes early in her career. She was also the first onscreen female partner of prolific porn actor Peter North.

Ginger worked steadily in the adult industry for years before deciding to try her hand at mainstream movies. In 1986 she stopped making adult videos and began trying to establish a career in mainstream films using her full name. She had several appearances in B-movies, television shows, and even interactive movie segments of the "Wing Commander" computer games. Her first non-adult role was a small part in "Young Guns II," which co-starred Charlie Sheen, an actor who would soon become Ginger's next love interest. But after years of trying to make it big in mainstream media, Ginger eventually went back to the adult industry in 1999, filming three movies: "Torn" (1999), "White Lightning" (2000), and "New Wave Hookers 6" (2000). In 2006 a new opportunity arouse for Ginger in the adult realm, this time in radio; she became a host of Playboy Radio's Sirius Satellite Radio show, Night Calls Radio, with former adult film actress Christy Canyon.

Although Ginger was finding success in other areas of media, she was still highly sought after for adult onscreen performances. In 2007 she performed for two of Kink.com's hardcore sites, Ultimate Surrender and Sex and Submission. In 2008 she appeared in "Dirty Rotten Mother Fuckers" with James Deen and "Seasoned Players 4" with Tom Byron, and then went on to do more than a dozen hardcore releases in each of the next two years.

Personal Life

Ginger had a number of high profile relationships over the years. She dated George Clooney in the early 90's when they met on the set of a short lived TV show. She dated Charlie Sheen from 1990 - 1992, staying with him through one of his stints in rehab. Although their relationship was short, she made quite an impression on the Sheen family in those two years, gaining their support during her trial for tax evasion and later when she spent time in rehab for drug abuse. Ginger also had a long term relationship with Los Angeles radio personality Ralph Garman and a more notorious coupling with rock icon Billy Idol.

In 2002, Ginger was the subject of an episode of the documentary series "E! True Hollywood Story." She appeared in another episode about her relationship with actor Charlie Sheen in 2010. In 2005 she made one more attempt to break into mainstream film and appeared in "American Pie: Band Camp," playing the supporting role of Nurse Sanders. Although her mainstream career never made her as popular as her adult career, Ginger was certainly a jack of all trades. Actress, director, radio host, and many more titles can be attributed to this talented woman who took the adult world by storm and turned herself into an icon.

 I can only say that I was introduced to Ginger later in my life my wish is that I had met her earlier! I would have loved and still do to have had a one on one with her in one of her films
