Early lifeEdit

Born in England, she grew up in a conservative household.[1][3] She moved to the United States at the age of 21.[3]

CareerEdit

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.[4] However, porn director Anthony Spinelli talked her into doing her first sex scene in Sex World (1977).[4][2][5][6] She is best known for her role in the 1980 film Taboo.[2][1] She retired from porn in the mid-'80s and for a time worked for Caballero Home Video as their public relations representative.[2]

Later yearsEdit

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.[7] 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.[8]
