Early life and education

Asia Carrera was born in New York City to a Japanese father and German mother,[2] the oldest of four siblings.[3] She was raised in Little Silver, New Jersey, attending the Little Silver School District and Red Bank Regional High School.

She studied piano as a child, and performed at Carnegie Hall twice before the age of 15. By 16 she taught English at Tsuruga College in Japan.[4] When she was 17, she ran away from home because she felt her parents put too much pressure on her to succeed academically.

She won a full academic scholarship to Rutgers University and is a member of Mensa.[4][5]

Adult film career

Carrera worked during the early 1990s as a dancer at several go-go bars in her home state of New Jersey.

After doing at least one photoshoot for an adult magazine, she put together a demo porn tape in 1993. At the end of that year she relocated to California to break into the pornography business. She announced her retirement at the end of 2003. She is sometimes credited as "Asia" or "Jessica Bennett".

Carrera has also been involved in writing, producing, and directing movies, as well as doing all her own make-up and hair-styling, and doing much of the hair and make-up for other actresses in the same movies.

As is common practice among adult film stars, the name "Asia Carrera" is a pseudonym. According to interviews, she chose the stage name surname from actress Tia Carrere, changing the spelling for legal reasons.[6]
