She was a body double in the films Basic Instinct and Indecent Proposal. Gere began working in adult films in 1990, becoming renowned for her very athletic performances. She acted under the name Kimberly Patton in the television series Space: Above and Beyond from 1995 to 1996; she also appeared under that name in episodes of Silk Stalkings and the TV series, Millennium.
Gere began acting in pornographic films during the same time frame as her bit part career in mainstream acting. She continued her pornographic career while playing on the shows listed above, becoming one of the few actresses to successfully balance both mainstream and pornographic careers (as opposed to the usual tactic of focusing exclusively on one aspect or the other). She has also appeared under the Patton name in the films The One and Willard, and was credited as Kimberly Ashlyn Gere for an appearance on The X-Files.
Ashlyn's first anal sex scene was possibly in a showcase movie for the event – Ashlyn Gere – Put It In Gere : Put It In Her Rear. However, in the first installment of Ashlyn Gere – Realities she claims the anal scene with Tom Byron was the first recorded instance. Ashlyn's trademark is her explosive scenes and ability to dominate her partners in any situation.
