During August, when she was chosen to model for the 15th anniversary issue of Penthouse magazine, Lords was asked to choose a stage name. She chose Tracy after actor Jack Lord, one of the popular names she wanted to grow up with, and Lorde, as she was a fan of the television series Hawaii Five-O, in which she portrayed the character of Steve McGarrett . After some of her classmates recognized her in a Velvet magazine illustration, she dropped out of high school at age 15 and entered the sex industry, where education was irrelevant.
Lordes made the first of her many illegal films during October 1984, when she appeared in What Gets Me Hot! With Tom Byrne, who later became her boyfriend off-screen.

Dale and Lord’s struck a distribution deal with C Adler, an industry veteran running Vantage International, that they would produce three films for the company. During March, the first TLC feature, Tracy Tex Tokyo, was released. The second, Beverly Hills Copulator, was released later, and the third film, Screamer, (Eddie DiZiole) was shelved.

The only film legally available in the United States, when authorities requested that all minor films previously been made by her as a minor, was Tracy, I Love You, . She sold her rights to Tracy, I Love You in early 1987 for over $100,000. This action resulted in the claim that she herself tipped the authorities to seek exemption from prosecution, while being the only woman to benefit from the film. Lordes denied this notion in her autobiography, saying that she was reluctant to sell the rights, as she was trying to become a mainstream actress at the time, and wanted no older films still available. “Tracy, I Love You” was the last porn film to feature Tracy Lords.
