I think the hardest time was coming to terms with my bisexuality. That was probably the hardest thing. I was brought up that I was going to burn for it. Once I got over that and realized I didn't have to live under my family's thumb any more and that I was an adult and made my own decisions, I sought out the adult industry, being a natural exhibitionist. It just seemed like the right thing.
Lane became pregnant at 16 and began stripping to support herself and her child in 1990. In 1996, while still dancing, she was offered work posing in hard-core men's magazines.
She made her hardcore film debut in 1999, performing in only lesbian or girl/girl scenes. She signed an exclusive contract for the production company Wicked Pictures in December 1999. She has directed many films, notably all five installments of The Devinn Lane Show. In 2003, she began performing with men, starting with the final scene in The Devinn Lane Show 5: Save The Best For Last. Over the next two years she performed scenes with men in Kink, Lovestruck, Space Nuts, Improper Conduct, Wicked Sex Party 6, Beautiful, Stiletto, Tuff Chick, two Road Trixx movies (which she also directed), and Lovers Lane.
Her first Producer credit is on the film Beautiful/Nasty which was nominated for the AVN Award Best All-Girl Feature in 2002.
As of 2005, she went on indefinite hiatus from on-screen work, focusing on directing for the production company Shane's World.
In addition to hardcore work, Lane also hosted Playboy TV's mock reality show 7 Lives Exposed, which ran for six seasons until 2007, and has appeared in several softcore films which appear on DVD and on the Cinemax channels.
In October 2008, Lane filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Digital Playground, Vivid Entertainment Group, and Moniker Online Services among other entities, alleging that they profited from domain names similar to her performer name and did not compensate her. The defendants in the litigation say it is a frivolous lawsuit and a retaliation action prompted by the ebbing of her career as a contract girl due to her age and diminishing public demand for her services. In February 2009, she dismissed her claims against most of the companies she was suing, leaving only Privacy Protect and Pixel named in the suit. Her attorney declined comment at the time on why she was dropping those firms.
