Upon hearing that it was a pornographic movie, Parker reportedly declined the offer. Eventually she eased into the industry by only playing bit parts in non-sexual roles. However, porn director Anthony Spinelli talked her into doing her first sex scene in the 1977 film Sex World.
In the original Taboo, Parker is partnered with Mike Ranger, who plays her son Paul Scott. In Taboo 2 she is partnered with Kevin James, a young actor who portrayed Gregory "Junior" McBride Jr., Paul's best friend. In Taboo 3 it's revealed that Parker has a younger son James Scott (Jerry Butler), who, in a darkened room, she has mistaken for Paul, her older son.
She said during her commentary for the Taboo DVD that there was definitely a mutual attraction between herself and Ranger, despite an age gap of about 10 years between them.
Kay Parker also continued her "mature woman with a younger man" motif in some softcore films, such as Desert Winds (1995). She also played herself in the 2005 independent film Dick Ho: Asian Male Porn Star – a mockumentary about a fictional legendary Asian porn actor which included some interviews with known adult film actresses from the 70s in which they talk about their "memories" of the star.
Parker later worked as a New Age metaphysical counselor and lecturer. In 2001, she wrote a book titled Taboo: Sacred, Don't Touch (ISBN 0971368406), in which she wrote about her early childhood, her career in the adult industry, and her experiences with the metaphysical.
