About Tera Patrick
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, including their official flagship site, TeraPatrick.com.
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 booked solid on an exhaustive schedule; celebrity appearances from Conventions like AVN, and Exxxotica , to Video stores and record stores and even DJ’s at the hottest clubs in America, in NY, Miami, Chicago, Reno, Los Angeles, and many more, including several appearances each year at the top grossing nightclub-restaurant in the world, Tao Las Vegas. Tera is the top feature dancer selling out gentleman’s clubs around the world and is getting ready to heat up Las Vegas with her very own live burlesque show!
Tera is also extremely active in the adult film community, raising money for Causes such as the Free Speech Coalition and AIM 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.
