Raylene (born Stacey Briana Bernstein on February 12, 1977) is the stage name of an award-winning American former pornographic actress. She is also an AVN Hall of Fame inductee.

Early life[edit]

Raylene was born and raised in Glendora, California.[4] She is of Italian and Mexican descent on her mother's side.[4] Her father is Jewish of Polish and Austrian descent.[1][4]

As a child, Raylene chose to attend Christian schools.[4] She was an honors student in high school and graduated at age 16, two years early.[4] She wanted to pursue Christian studies at Azusa Pacific University and become a Christian high school teacher, but did not have enough money or time to do so.[4]

With help from her uncle, who is a producer, Raylene appeared on Hunter and 21 Jump Street.[4]

Career[edit]

In 1996 at the age of 19, Raylene did her first boy-girl scene in Shane's World #4 with Mark Davis. In 1998, Raylene signed an exclusive contract with the adult film company Vivid Entertainment.[1] Over the course of her career she has also worked for production companies such as Adam & Eve, Brazzers, Elegant Angel, Evil Angel, Girlfriends Films, Hustler Video, Sin City, Tom Byron Pictures, VCA Pictures, Wicked Pictures, and Zero Tolerance.[2]

Raylene has retired from the adult film industry several times - first in 2001 to become a real estate agent and then from dancing in 2004.[1] As documented in the movie After Porn Ends, in response to financial hardship in 2009, she made a comeback with the movie Raylene's Dirty Work.[5] In January 2014, she announced via her Twitter account that she had retired from the industry.[6]

Appearances[edit]

At the 2000 Grammy Awards, Raylene was featured cage dancing with Kobe Tai during a performance by Kid Rock.[7]
