Born in Anchorage, Alaska, Jessica Jaymes and her father moved to Arizona at age 10. She originally aspired to be a fighter pilot, something encouraged by her father, but ended up teaching grades 4 through 6 after graduating from high school. During her teaching stint for three years, she also worked as an exotic dancer at a club across from the local Montessori elementary school.
Jessica Jaymes' entry into pornography began in 2002, when she started dating someone from the adult-oriented Playtime magazine based out of Arizona. Jaymes' was subsequently cast as a lead in Sunshine Films' Sexhibition 9. She did about 40 films before taking a hiatus from films to host Playboy TV's reality Totally Busted.
When Jaymes was 21 years old, she had breast implant surgery, which increased her breast size from 34B to 35D and pierced her nipples and clitoris. Jaymes is an avowed bisexual, who has had on-screen sex with women and believes that by doing so, she will prolong her adult film career. She has also commented that "[w]hen that is old, I'm going to dip into having sex with men and start my own production company."
After the alleged incident with pop singer Nick Lachey (see personal life) was publicized, her career seemed to escalate with the announcement that she is the first-ever contract model for Hustler and awarded her the "Hustler Honey of the Year" award.
On November 21, 2005, Salon.com reported that Jaymes and her agent were shopping around the alleged "real story" for a price of around one million USD.
Jessica also played a small role in two episodes of the television series Weeds.
Jaymes was Penthouse Pet of the Month for August 2008.
On October 12, 2004, it was widely reported that Jessica Jaymes and pop singer Nick Lachey had a sexual encounter at a bachelor party for his friend, Sean Sullivan, held at the Hollywood Hills residence of C-Note Records' owner Cody Leibel. Jaymes later claimed to New York Post's Page Six that Lachey watched her in a lesbian sex show with another pornographic performer.
