Parker was reportedly introduced to the adult film industry during the late 1970s by actor John Leslie, who suggested she take part in one of his upcoming films. She made her first appearance in ‘V’ – The Hot One in a non-sex role. Soon afterwards, porn director Anthony Spinelli talked her into doing her first sex scene in Sex World (1977). Typically she was cast in mature women roles, such as mothers, step mothers, rich aunts and so on. She is best known for her role in the 1980 film Taboo. She retired from porn in the mid-’80s and for a time worked for Caballero Home Video as their public relations representative. She also appeared in small parts in several mainstream movies and televisions series, such as The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.
In 2001, she wrote her autobiography titled Taboo: Sacred, Don’t Touch: An Autobiographical Journey Spanning Six Thousand Years in which she wrote about her early childhood, her career in the adult industry, and her experiences with the metaphysical. A revised version, Taboo: Sacred Don’t Touch – The Revised Version (ISBN 978-1-36-741153-1) was published in 2016. Parker now has an internationally viewed YouTube channel where she answers questions in her videos by her fans on a myriad of subjects on spirituality and spiritual exercises for personal individual growth. She also offers personal Skype sessions with clients who pay her for spiritual counseling.
Parker is the subject of the documentary A Taboo Identity, which chronicles her transition from porn star to metaphysical counselor.
