Who is Tera Patrick? Without a doubt, Tera Patrick is one of the most prominent porn celebrities of all time. Not only is Tera an AVN, Nightmoves, and XRCO “Hall Of Fame” inductee, but she is also the only woman ever to be featured on the covers of Playboy and Penthouse magazines simultaneously.
Tera was named as Penthouse magazine’s “Pet of the Month” for February 2000, she was their “Pet of the Year Runner-Up” in 2002 and she founded her own production company, TeraVision INC, through which she made a steady stream of critically acclaimed movies.
Even though she no longer shoots hardcore porn, Tera continues to thrill her fans via her exclusive website, TeraPatrick.com, as well as pursuing various mainstream projects. Born in Great Falls, Montana, but raised in San Francisco, California, Tera has Thai, English, and Dutch heritage.
A natural-born performer, Tera was discovered by a talent scout from the Eileen Ford Modeling Agency when she was 13 whilst she was walking along Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco. Tera was signed to a modeling contract and she moved to New York City where she pursued a career as a runway and catalog model.
Tera became a modeling sensation in 1999 after she was featured in a spread for Playboy magazine. Tera’s modeling career continued to soar to new heights in February 2000 when she was named Penthouse magazine’s “Pet of the Month”.
Tera found posing nude to be a very empowering experience – so much so that she decided to pose for various nude and softcore features. Most notably, Tera was featured on the covers of Men’s World (1999), Adam Presents Amateur Porn (1999), Hustler Beach Girls (2000), and Hustler Erotic Video Guide (2000).
Tera decided to make her official hardcore debut in 2000 and she has always been open with her family with regards to her career choices.
