Personal life

Dare was born in Wayne, New Jersey. Early in her professional career, Dare self-identified as a lesbian, having personal relationships with women.


Dare began appearing in adult films in the mid-1980s and also made appearances in magazines such as Hustler, Swank, and High Society. In 1989, she joined fellow adult film actress Stephanie Swift as authors of a monthly article for Swank.

Dare was one of the top adult film stars of the 1980s. She appeared in scenes with several (at the time) top adult films stars, including Tracey Adams and Ginger Lynn. She became one of the first women in the industry to sign an exclusivity contract with Essex Video for 10 movies a year and an annual salary of $150,000 and would later leave that studio to sign with Vivid Entertainment and become one of the earliest Vivid Girls. Dare appeared in her last film in 1994.

Jerry Butler stated in his autobiography that Dare had a "commanding screen presence" while on set, in spite of her smaller physical stature.


Dare was interviewed in 1987 for the episode of the television news series Frontline regarding the death of Shauna Grant.

She also had minor roles in mainstream productions such as the Roy Scheider and Ann-Margret film 52 Pick-Up in 1986 and the live-action/animated Comedy-Horror B-movie Evil Toons (where she was credited as "Stacey Nix") in 1992.
