Interviews: Tera Patrick
Tera Patrick is one of the most popular and widely recognized porn stars ever to exist, appearing in more than 70 films throughout her career. Her sultry, seductive voice, hourglass body and wild enthusiasm for sex have won her numerous awards and millions of fans over the years. She recently began her own production company called TeraVision with husband Evan Seinfeld, and they’ve produced more than a dozen films to date.
We were lucky enough to talk to the voluptuous vixen about her new films Teradise Island 2 and Reign Of Tera 3, not to mention everything from sexin’ it up atop an active volcano to her new aerobics video, Fit For Sex. Good times.
Antiquiet: How are things in TeraVision?
Tera Patrick: TeraVision is doing really good. We just had the XBIZ awards a couple weeks ago, where Evan (Seinfeld, husband and pornstar) won crossover star of the year. I was really excited for him because it’s the first award he’s ever won in the business. For me it was so exciting that he won because I kind of feel that he’s the unsung hero of the industry. He’s contributed so much to the industry and done so much for my career ever since he took it over five years ago and started TeraVision with me. He’s just taken me to a whole new level. We work really well together, and he’s done so much for me so it was really nice to see him up on stage going “…and I would like to thank my beautiful wife.”
We just put out Teradise Island 2 this month, which is the sequel to Teradise Island obviously, which was one of my biggest movies last year, and we have Reign Of Tera 3 coming out this year. So there’s a lot of sequels coming out this year.
Antiquiet: How much does it help to have a husband in the industry that can relate to everything going on in your world?
Tera Patrick: It helps a lot. I would have to say that’s the only reason our marriage works, because we’re both in the entertainment industry and with him coming from music and me coming from modeling and film, we’re able to relate to each other on a different level. He knows how busy I am, I know how busy he is. We both have our own careers, but we’re both able to work together. I really admire him. Without really knowing it, we were both kind of fans of each other. He had pictures of me on his computer before we met but didn’t know my name. I was actually on the cover of his compilation album in Brazil, but I didn’t know who he was.
Antiquiet: Do you get tired of being in the public eye?
Tera Patrick: Yeah, we escape quite a bit. We always take time for ourselves and spend a lot of time at home together. We go on trips together… one of our favorite things to do is travel. We love to go to new places. Last year we went to about six countries together, we spent our anniversary together in September in Milan.
Antiquiet: Do you get recognized outside of the States?
Tera Patrick: I remember we went to Fiji last year, and nobody knew who we were. It was awesome. Nobody was asking to take a picture with us, and we just got naked in the spa together and ran around the hot tub naked. Some people came in and said, “Oh, this is a nudist resort?” and we were like, “Yeah! Join the party!” It was really cool.
Antiquiet: Did they get naked?
Tera Patrick: No, I think we scared ‘em off… (laughs)
Antiquiet: The porn industry has been criticized for the lack of intimacy between the people on film. Bearing that in mind, what does love mean to you?
Tera Patrick: Love is a very powerful emotion; it’s something you feel for someone or something that evokes a sense of security and warm comfort. I feel love for my husband for my husband and my best friend and my dog, and I have love for Thai food. They all make me feel comfortable and secure and really good about myself.
Antiquiet: Especially Thai food.
Tera Patrick: Oh yeah! I looove spicy mint leaf tofu.
Antiquiet: What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done for love?
Tera Patrick: When I first met my husband Evan I bought us tickets to Kuai, and he had never been there before. I took him hiking up a volcano, and we had sex at the top. It was an active volcano, too.
Antiquiet: That’s hot.
Tera Patrick: Yeah, literally!
Antiquiet: What romance advice would you give a guy trying to win a girl over?
Tera Patrick: I’d say flowers, candy… get a hotel room somewhere and decorate it with rose petals and run a bubble bath. I’m very much a traditional romantic. My husband still brings me flowers every day. He’ll buy me an orchid plant, he buys me chocolate… but not recently cause I’ve been training extra hard. Just spending time with someone is what matters. My husband and I have this little thing when we wake up in the morning where he throws his leg over me and we cuddle for an extra five minutes even if we have a photo shoot that day and we’re really busy. Taking the time to wrap your arms- or legs- around that special someone and let them know you care about them, even for a minute.
Antiquiet: I agree completely. Speaking of training, I heard you were making an aerobics video.
Tera Patrick: It’s called Fit For Sex and it’s a pretty hardcore, intense workout. It’s an actual real workout, so no wimps allowed, and it focuses mainly on core strengths, which is of course your abs, your glutes… It incorporates a lot of yoga and pilates, so there’s a lot of stretching. The idea of it is to make your body stronger for sex, so you can have sex in more fulfilling positions, Kama Sutra positions. We do backbends and things that maybe not everybody can do right away, but you can work up to it.
Antiquiet: When does it come out?
Tera Patrick: April. We’re shooting it now, and it’ll be editing and finished and ready by April. I’m real excited about it. It’s been fun to shoot, but let me tell you, I have been so sore every day.
