Born in Waipahu, Hawai'i, Thorn is of half Japanese, a quarter Puerto Rican, and a quarter Hawaiian descent. Her mother works as a secretary, and her father is in the construction business. Thorn revealed that she lost her virginity at the age of 14.
Growing up in Hawaii, Thorn's first job was working in promotion and marketing person for a record company at age 14. At 16 she relocated to California, where she worked at a coffee shop and at Melrose boutiques. 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.
Thorn has been married.
