She entered the adult film industry in 2006 at the age of around 20 and has appeared in over 300 movies. According to The Root, she is known as the “Halle Berry of the porn industry” because of her crossover appeal. Stones stated in a 2014 interview that she “fell into” working in the adult film industry, but later chose to make a career of it because she wanted to be the best at what she was doing. She also tried a variety of looks early on in her career to create a unique appeal for her audience. She describes the look that she chose as “afro-centric 70s” and inspired by the actress Pam Grier.
Stone has stated that she enjoys acting, but did not have the opportunity to indulge it until she was cast as Denise Huxtable in the 2009 parody Not the Cosbys XXX. She went on to star in the 2011 Hustler’s Untrue Hollywood Stories: Oprah parody as the title character of Oprah Winfrey and in 2013 as Mel B (a.k.a. Scary Spice) in the Spice Girls parody OMG… It’s the Spice Girls XXX Parody.
Also in 2013, Stone co-hosted the XRCO Award ceremonies with Ed Powers followed by co-hosting the Nightmoves awards with Ron Jeremy. Stone was also nominated in several categories for the award including Porn Star of the Year, Sexiest Adult Star, Porn’s Best Body, and Porn’s Perfect Sex Couple (girl/girl).
In February 2014, Stone announced that she is working on appearing in mainstream productions and that going forward in the adult film industry she would only perform scenes in the girl/girl and solo genres. She is represented by James Bartholet of Galaxy Publicity and Management. In March she began filming for a production titled I Thought You Were A Nice Man, the first of three film projects.
Stone was selected to be the December 2014 Penthouse Pet of the Month. Her pictorial was shot by glamour photographer Holly Randall and she is also featured on the cover. Stone stated about her selection as a Penthouse Pet, “It’s more than an honor to be crowned the Penthouse Pet for December, it’s surreal…” “I think by being crowned the Penthouse Pet of the Month shows that the world is changing, and change is good, and all things are possible
