Satiny blonde XXX goddess Amber Lynn was not always a buff and burnished superstar of the skin screen. When the slim and wholly sexualized fireballer made her Casino of Lust (1983) debut, she was cute, unsophisticated, and voracious. But video was just taking over from film as the medium of choice for adult-film marketeers. Amber entered hardcore skinema when the industry was on the cusp of a major upheaval. Her personal reinvention coincided with a revolution in the way people viewed sexually explicit material, and she was not alone. A whole new pantheon of superstars spontaneously erupted along with the home-viewing bonanza triggered by the advent of the VCR. Along with Amber, Ginger Lynn, Christy Canyon, and Traci Lords became bedroom names in almost every American household that had a TV and a tape deck. Amber's star arc outsoared and outlasted them all. Her strutting high-caliber glamour became a template for dozens of Vivid Video franchise girls. The continuation of Amber Lynn's style and attitude can be clearly seen in the femme-machismo stage personas of mainstream mega-stars such as Britney Spears.
