Tera Patrick: Porn Star Biography

A mix of both English and Thai descent, Tera Patrick's looks have always been what one person described as "haughty and exotic," which afforded her an early career as a runway model during her teenage years. These early experiences in the fashion industry no doubt helped her become one of the most successful performers-turned-business-women in the adult industry. Having earned a Bachelor's degree in microbiology from Boise State University and continuing her education to become a registered nurse, she worked in this field for several years until she eventually moved to California and took up modeling again. Following her close friends, Tera sent her photo to be considered for a shoot with Playboy magazine. To her surprise, she was contacted immediately to add her name to a long line of Penthouse, Hustler and Playboy cover girls (in fact, she holds the distinction of being the only woman ever to be featured simultaneously on both covers of Playboy and Penthouse magazines.

Career

Moving into adult filming, Patrick was initially contracted with Digital Playground for whom she made a few movies, but then announced her retirement from the adult industry in December of 2002. She took a one-year hiatus and then returned to sign a contract with Vivid for whom she made several movies with then husband Evan Seinfeld. Eventually she started her own production company called Teravision—which along with Vivid Video, released its first feature, Desperate. According to Tera, her fondest memories are of making the Reign of Tera series and Tera Tera Tera, where she performed with her favorite adult performer, Savanna Samson. After once again deciding to no longer perform, she continued modeling and making video clips (offering them exclusively at her website)—for example, she was featured in the April 2012 edition of FHM Magazine Slovenia as a cover girl and centerfold, as well as appearing in FHM and Maxim Girls.

Quirky Facts

Tera has authored a memoir, Sinner Takes All—affording an intimate glimpse into her early life and her life on the road where she traveled to more than 80 countries featuring dancing and filming, among other art forms. In her memoir, she also offers sizzling details of her love life on and off the set.

Personal Life

In 2004, she married Evan Seinfeld (bassist of rap-metal pioneers, "Biohazard") in a small ceremony in Las Vegas while attending the 2004 AVN Awards show; in 2006, they launched a talent agency representing models and actor/actresses with the intent to "to help girls (and guys) in the business to be treated with respect, and realize their true potential ..." Though the couple announced in September 2009 that they were ending their marriage, they decided to remain business partners. Afterwards Tera chose to live in Los Angeles with her boyfriend, Tony Acosta (a prominent special effects artist), her daughter Sophia, and dog Chopper.
