MODEL: TERA PATRICK
About TERA
Tera Patrick is the number one pornstar in the world today. With a classy, exotic, and more Glamour Queen than Porn Queen look, a voluptuous body, and keen sense for business, Tera has transcended hardcore to mainstream celebrity, emerging as the millennium’s first authentic global sex symbol.

Born in Great Falls, Montana to an American Army doctor father of English and Dutch descent and a Thai mother, Tera moved around quite a bit as a child both in the U.S. and overseas, gaining a valuable, early understanding of different peoples and cultures. At the tender age of 13, she was discovered by a Japanese photographer on Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco and immediately enrolled in the venerable Barbizon Modeling School. Soon after, Tera signed with Morning Sun modeling agency and became an overnight success in both print and runway, spending most of her teen years as a working model in Japan, Europe, and New York.

Upon returning to the U.S. after immense success overseas, Tera felt compelled to give something back and removed her high heels long enough to enroll in Boise State University to take undergraduate classes in biology. Finding helping others truly fulfilling, Tera pursued a career in medicine by earning a certificate as an emergency medical technician and studying until she achieved a degree to be a registered nurse. She landed jobs in nursing homes and emergency rooms in Simi Valley, California, clearly becoming the sexiest girl in white her hospital had ever seen.

Even though Tera genuinely enjoyed nursing, friends convinced her to get back into modeling. She soon found herself at an open audition for Playboy and was selected from among a thousand ambitious and gorgeous ladies for both the magazine and Playboy TV. In the blink of an eye, Tera Patrick was gracing the covers of every important men’s publications, including Hustler, Club, Swank, Velvet, High Society, and Cheri. She remains the only woman to ever grace the covers of Playboy and Penthouse simultaneously and she still holds the laudable position of publisher of Genesis magazine. And to this day, she is the only erotic performer to appear on the cover of the domestic FHM. She also appeared on the cover of FHM U.K., where she served as the magazine’s sexpert for four years.

A hopeless exhibitionist, Tera further explored her sensuous side and in late 1999 she stepped onto the big and small screens, accepting roles in various nude and soft-core features like The Seduction of Maxine and other “skin-a-max”-type soft-core flicks. While her first film, Aroused, directed by adult visionary Andrew Blake, was indeed a hardcore film, she only performed with a girl making her role in the film soft-core. Her first hardcore film (girl-boy) came later that year/next year in the Adam & Eve production Fire and Ice. Tera’s naughty notoriety spread even further through her co-hosting role on Night Calls 411 on Playboy TV from 2000-2003.

In her almost 10 years in the entertainment business, Tera has been featured in over 100 adult films and has appeared on more magazine covers than any other adult star in history. Since winning the coveted "Best New Starlet" award for her first film, Tera has gone on to win every major award in the medium and she continues to set records on the adult charts.

In 2002, she met the man of her dreams – Evan Seinfeld of the HBO prison drama Oz and founder/lead singer/bassist of the multi-platinum hardcore Brooklyn rockers Biohazard. After a whirlwind romance, the couple tied the knot in Las Vegas on Jan. 9, 2004 and currently reside in California.

In 2003, Tera and Evan formed their own production company, Teravision. Tera exploded as a contract star (a “Vivid Girl”) for porn giant Vivid Entertainment, but the dynamic duo was confident they could produce top quality adult fare on their own. Today, Teravision releases two High Definition erotic adult movies each month via U.S. distribution through Vivid and their porn empire goes beyond Teravision. They also have a licensing and marketing division (The Tera Patrick Agency), a lingerie line (Mistress Couture), a radio show (Rockstar/Pornstar on Playboy Radio on Sirius), a hardcore production company (Iron Cross), and some of the most popular porn websites on the Internet.

Tera's superstar status has also been furthered by countless appearances in the mainstream media, including a cameo in the blockbuster Will Farrell comedy Blades of Glory, a storyline based on her and co-starring her on Cartoon Network’s Aqua Teen Hunger Force, an appearance in the video game Backyard Wrestling 2: There Goes the Neighborhood, and her role a spokesperson and downloadable character for the video game Saints Row 2. Mainstream fans also know Tera from various specials and shows on CNBC, HBO, WE, MTV, E!, VH1, and of course, the Howard Stern Show.
Tera is also extremely active in the adult film community, raising money for CAUSES SUCH AS the Free Speech Coalition and A.I.M Healthcare and the cancer-battling organization, B.A.B.E. (Breast Awareness Benefits Everyone).

Currently, Tera has three mainstream instructional fitness videos BEING released, titled Fit for Sex, with the company that brought us Carmen Electra’s Aerobic Striptease. And, she begins hosting her new show, School of Sex on Playboy TV, this fall in which Tera gives sex advice while her teachers’ helpers act-out the advice. She will also star in her new burlesque show, Sex, which debuts in January 2009. Tera and Evan are currently writing their joint autobiography Rockstar/Pornstar: An American Love Story with entertainment journalist Carrie Borzillo-Vrenna, author of Cherry Bomb: The Ultimate Guide to Becoming a Better Flirt, a Tougher Chick, and a Hotter Girlfriend, and to Living Life Like a Rock Star and Eyewitness Nirvana: The Day-by-Day Chronicle.

** INTERVIEW **

How have you been?

AWESOME, JUST WORKING ON MY LINGERIE LINE, MISTRESS COUTURE, AND GETTING READY TO DROP MY NEW MOVIE TERA GOES GONZO..

Many argue you are the most visible Pornstar to date.. what's the impact been like in terms of maintaining the pornstar image VS. crossing over into the mainstream..? IT'S FUNNY, IT SEEMS TO WORK IN BOTH DIRECTIONS, PEOPLE WHO KNOW ME FROM PORN THINK IT IS AWESOME WHEN THEY SEE ME ON VH1 OR HBO,.. PEOPLE WHO DISCOVER ME IN MAINSTREAM WHETHER IN MAGAZINES , FASHION, WEB, EDITORIAL OR RAPINDUSTRY.COM OFTEN BECOME FANS OF MY ADULT WORK.. KINDA LIKE A SNOWBALL EFFECT I GUESS ! THERE ARE SO MANY SUBCULTURES AND SUB-GENRES THAT HAVE NO CROSSOVER AT ALL WITH EACH OTHER, BUT A SEXY WOMAN CAN BREAK DOWN ALL BARRIERS. ONCE I WAS ON THE COVER OF IMPORT TUNER, AND EASYRIDERS AT THE SAME TIME. THOSE TWO SCENES HAVE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING IN COMMON, ... EXCEPT EVERYONE WANTS TO SEE A SEXY HALF NAKED CHICK ON THEIR VEHICLE OF CHOICE, SO EXPOSURE IS PRETTY EASY. I JUST TELL ANYONE WHO IS INTERESTED TO CHECK OUT TERAPATRICK.COM, THAT IS MY MOTHERSHIP.

You have quite a few projects in the pipeline...Which one(s) are you most excited about? WELL, I AM CURRENTLY WRITING A BOOK WITH MY HUSBAND... IT IS A JOINT AUTOBIOGRAPHY WHERE WE TELL AMAZING STORIES FROM OUR LIVES BEFORE WE MET, AND EVEN MORE INCREDIBLE ONES IN OUR LIFE TOGETHER, IT IS A LOVE STORY, A SUCCESS STORY AND REALLY HILARIOUS. WE HAVE ALSO BOTH BEEN THROUGH SOME REALLY REALLY HARD TIMES AND HAVE BOTH COME OUT ON THE OTHER SIDE OK, .. LEANING ON EACH OTHER. I ALSO HAVE A FITNESS VIDEO CALLED FIT FOR SEX COMING OUT NEXT MONTH.. THAT IS SO AMAZING, IT IS A WORK OUT VIDEO I HAVE DEVISED TO HELP YOU BECOME A BETTER LOVER TO GET IN SHAPE AND JUST TO FEEL GOOD AND SEXY. BECAUSE TO FEEL SEXY IS TO BE SEXY

How did you get involved with the video game Saints Row 2?
OH, WELL EVAN AND HIS SON SAM PLAY THAT ONLINE ALL DAY NON STOP. THEIR GANG IS CALLED "THE WEST COAST GANGSTERS".. FOR ME IT WAS A KINDA LAUGH BECAUSE THESE VIDEO GAMES ARE SO VIOLENT, BUT THERE IS STILL A HANGUP IN AMERICA ABOUT SEXY... SO I WAS LIKE, I WANT TO BREAK DOWN THE WALL AND BE THE OFFICIAL SPOKESMODEL OF THE MOST HARDCORE GAME IN THE UNIVERSE. ALSO I THINK THAT GAMING IS THE FASTEST GROWING PART OF THE ENTERTAINMENT BUSINESS, AND UNLIKE A MOVIE , THAT PEOPLE GO SEE ONCE, VIDEO GAMES ARE SOMETHING PEOPLE PLAY AGAIN AND AGAIN, SOMETIMES ALL DAY, SO I AM GETTING "EXPOSED" TO A WHOLE NEW AUDIENCE. I MEAN , EVERY STAR WHO IS WELL KNOWN CAN BE REDISCOVERED BY NEW YOUNG PEOPLE EVERY DAY. EVERYONE NEEDS A SEX SYMBOL. THAT IS HEALTHY! THE GUYS AT THQ ARE SO AWESOME, I HAVE SHOT A TON OF VIDEOS FOR THE PROMOTION OF THE GAME AS I HAVE BECOME A SPECIAL PRODUCER OF THE GAME. I AM BEING ANIMATED INTO AN ACTUAL DOWNLOADABLE CHARACTER IN THE GAME. WAIT TILL YOU GUYS SEE THIS!

How's your Rockstar Pornstar radio show with Playboy doing? IT HAS BEEN AWESOME SO FAR.. PLAYBOY RADIO IS NOW FREE, SO IF YOU HAVE SIRIUS, JUST CALL IN AND OPT IN, OUR SHOW IS ON TUESDAY NIGHTS AT 9PM.... WE HAVE GUESTS FROM DAVE NAVARRO AND CYPRESS HILL, ONYX, KAT VON D, AND MORE TO ALL THE HOTTEST STARS IN PORN FROM KAYLA PAIGE, ANGIE SAVAGE, JOANNA ANGEL TO THE VIVID GIRLS.

Whats the craziest topic you guys have discussed thus far on the radio show? WELL, WE TALK ALOT ABOUT BACKSTAGE GROUPIE STORIES, BOTH FROM RAPPERS ROCKSTARS AND PORNSTARS.. IT GETS REALLY HOT.

You are also gearing up for School of Sex on Playboy TV.. what's the outline of the show going to be? Will you have guests on the show as well? Tell us what to expect.
MY NEW TV SERIES SCHOOL OF SEX ON PLAYBOY TV IS AMAZING . IT IS ALL ABOUT SEX, AND I AM THE TEACHER, SO IF YOU WANT TO KNOW HOW TO HAVE A THREESOME OR JUST HOW TO EAT PUSSY, I WILL NOT ONLY EXPLAIN IT, BUT HAVE MY MODELS ACT IT OUT FOR YOU.. SO FUCKING HOT!

As leaders in your Industry, Where do you see the Adult business heading? ( business models, technology, etc..) IT IS HEADED ONLINE FOR SURE AND INTO WHAT WE CALL IPTV, WHICH IS A FULLY INTERACTIVE WEB BASED SYSTEM THAT IS TOTALLY ON DEMAND VIA THE WEB ON YOUR TV.. THIS IS INCREDIBLE. THE FIRST REAL SYSTEM COMING OUT IS CALLED FYRE TV AND I JUST SO HAPPEN TO BE THE SPOKESMODEL. CHECK OUT FYRETV.COM

Will you continue to stay in the adult Industry? Do you have plans of ever migrating completely away from it and into mainstream? MY PRODUCTION COMPANIES TERAVISON AND IRON CROSS PRODUCE TWO TITLES EACH MONTH.. AND WE PUT OUT AMAZING MOVIES.. I MEAN I IMAGINE I WILL ALWAYS HAVE ONE FOOT SOLIDLY IN THE BUSINESS, BUT OF COURSE I WILL AT SOME POINT MOVE AWAY FROM BEING IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA TO A MORE BEHIND THE SCENES ROLE. I AM VERY VERY INVOLVED WITH MY LINGERIE BUSINESS MISTRESS COUTURE AND I JUST LOVE MAKING PEOPLE FEEL SEXY! I LOVE TO EXIST IN BOTH WORLDS AND MOVE SEAMLESSLY BACK AND FORTH... JUST BECAUSE EVEYONE TOLD ME IT COULD NOT BE DONE.

What other projects outside of Adult, would you like to be doing or get involved with? I LOVE FASHION AND MY FIRST LOVE IS MODELING.. I REALLY DIG POSING IN PHOTOS MORE THAN ANYTHING. I AM WORKING ON A REALITY SHOW AND OF COURSE I AM THINKING ABOUT SOME DIFFERENT MAINSTREAM TV AND FILM OPPORTUNITIES. I REALLY REALLY LOVE ANIMALS AND I AM ALSO INVOLVED IN SEVERAL CHARITIES, FIRST AND FOREMOST A BREAST CANCER CHARITY CALLED BABE.. HEY WE ALL LOVE BIG BEAUTIFUL BOOBS, AND MINE DID SO MUCH FOR ME, I WANT TO GIVE SOMETHING BACK.

What advice would you give to someone who is looking to get involved into the Adult Industry? TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR OWN CAREER AND CONTENT. SET GOALS AND DONT LET ANYTHING STOP YOU. ...

What do you do in your down time or spare time? I LOVE BEING HOME, SPENDING TIME WITH FAMILY AND MY DOGS. I WALK CHOPPER AND MR BIG TIME IN A STROLLER. I LIKE RIDING IN EVAN'S LOWRIDER CARS AND HOT RODS... WE TAKE RIDES ON HIS CHOPPER UP AND DOWN THE COAST. I SPEND A LOT OF TIME IN VEGAS. I HAVE SOMETHING REALLY BIG BREWING THERE.. THAT WILL BLOW YOU ALL AWAY.. A KIND OF WORK-PLAY THING.

What are some of your favorite hobbies? SHOPPING, GROOMING, SHOPPING, PARTYING, DANCING AND WATCHING TV.

We had a huge response to Volume 1 of our Street Heaters mixtape series ( back in '03) that you hosted for us.. That was alot of fun. We've defended you on a few instances since then where some viewers were saying that you were racist because you had apparantly mentioned in some interview that you would never do a scene with an african american... For the record: Could you explain or set the record straight?
IS SOMEONE RACIST BECAUSE THEY HAVE A PERSONAL PREFERENCE? IF A BLACK GUY LIKES WHITE GIRLS IS HE RACIST AGAINST BLACK WOMEN? MAN, I AM ASIAN, I DID NOT THINK WE COULD BE CONSIDERED RACIST, BUT FOR THE RECORD, I AM TOTALLY NOT RACIST, AND WHO I CHOOSE TO HAVE SEX WITH IS MY BUSINESS. WHAT IS FUNNY ABOUT THE WHOLE THING IS THAT THERE ARE A SMALL HANDFUL OF BLACK GUYS WHO SURF THE WEB ACCOSTING EVERY WHITE, ASIAN OR LATIN GIRL IN PORN WHO DO NOT WORK WITH BLACK PERFORMERS, CALLING THEM RACIST. ACTUALLY THEY ARE THE ONES WHO ARE PREJUDICED BECAUSE THEY ARE TRYING TO TELL ME WHO TO BE ATTRACTED TO. THE REALLY FUNNY PART IS THAT THE DEMOGRAPHIC STUDIES OF THE ADULT BUSINESS IS THAT PER CAPITA, NO ONE SPENDS LESS MONEY ON PORN IN AMERICA THAN BLACK MEN, SO TO BRING IT REALLY HIP HOP FOR YA, JAMES BROWN WOULD HAVE SAID THEY WERE "TALKIN LOUD, AND SAYING NOTHING!"

What are your biggest turn-ons? CONFIDENT FUNNY MEN, CONFIDENT AGGRESSIVE WOMEN, GREAT SMILE AND PEOPLE WHO SMELL GREAT

What are your biggest turn-offs? PEOPLE WHO TALK SHIT AND DONT BACK IT UP, DISHONEST PEOPLE , INSECURE PEOPLE.

Off topic-- if HBO's Oz comes back will Evan (your husband) be down for another season? HE BETTER BE, I LOVED THAT SHOW, THAT IS HOW WE MET, I SAW HIM NAKED ON TV AND CALLED HIS ASS.

If you could be anyone for a day (dead or alive) who would it be and why? MARILYN MONROE OR BETTIE PAGE IN THEIR HEY DAY.. NOW THAT WAS HOT..

Appreciate the time Tera, It's always a pleasure... AS USUAL, THE PLEASURE IS ALL MINE.. PURRRRR

XOXO
LOVE TERA
