Stacey Bernstein, known professionally as Raylene, is a retired American pornographic actress.

Early life[edit]

Raylene was born and raised in Glendora, California.[3] She is of Italian and Mexican descent on her mother's side.[3] Her father is Jewish of Polish and Austrian descent.[1][3]

As a child, Raylene chose to attend Christian schools.[3] She was an honors student in high school and graduated at age 16, two years early.[3] 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.[3]

Raylene began acting when she was five years old.[4] With help from her uncle, who is a producer, she appeared on Hunter and 21 Jump Street.[3] She made a non-speaking appearance on an episode of the late nite HBO sketch comedy series Mr. Show titled “Show Me Your Weenis” in which she played an anonymous groupie at the wild house party of a fictional hair metal rock band.

Career[edit]

Raylene entered the adult film industry in 1996 and did her first scene with Mark Davis in Shane’s World #4.[5][6] She was a contract performer for Vivid Entertainment between May 1998 and November 2001.[7]

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.[8] In January 2014, she announced via her Twitter account that she had retired from the industry.[9]

Personal life[edit]

Raylene was briefly married to Brad Hirsch, later the marriage ended in divorce.[1]
