She later said regarding the move: "When I was a little kid, I already knew I wanted to be a stripper."

After she turned 18, Thorn began working as a stripper, then went from dancing to nude modeling, followed by masturbation scenes, and later hardcore sex. Thorn was discovered by a talent agent in a club. The first adult film that she did was "for Ed Powers."

Thorn was a cast member of the Fox Network reality TV show My Bare Lady . She was also briefly featured as a lap dancer in the 2007 feature film comedy Knocked Up .

In an August 2008 interview, Thorn mentioned that, although she grew up eating meat (and asking her mom to send her Spam after she moved to the mainland), she was a vegetarian.
