It’s funny how information flows on the net no matter what the subject is. In our search for a topic for a new post we stumbled accross an unknown piece of information…at least to us. The super sexy and beautiful former queen of porn Tera Patrick is half Jewish, daughter of a British born Jewish father and a Thai mother. Tera’s real name is Linda Ann Hopkins Shapiro and she was born on July 25 1976 in Great Falls Montana of all places. Jews are everywhere. While Tera was pretty young, her mother moved back to Thailand to live permanently, and her father moved with her to San Francisco and raised her there alone. At age 13 she was discovered by a scout for the Ford Modeling Agency which immediately signed her up and shortley thereafter she moved to New York City to begin here career as a runway and catalog model. At age 18 she left the world of modeling and became a nursing student, receiving her associate’s (two year) degree in nursing. She is a registered nurse in the State of California. Her exotic features and gorgeous body led her to model again and this time to a more erotic and softcore genre where she became highly in demand and working for several modeling agencies travelling the world from shoot to shoot. Tera was always curious about nude modeling and began baring all for magazine spreads and ads.  As with many sexy girls before her, nude modeling led to hardcore photo shoots and later movies and by early 1999, Tera Patrick began her hardcore career mostly by appearing in many fetish and bondage videos under her first stage name Brooke Thomas.  The first hardcore porn movie of this half-Jewish goddess was Andrew Blake’s Aroused.  Her great performance and stunning good looks led her to more and more gigs leading her to her first real boy/girl porn scene in Fire & Ice which sky rocketed her career.  Tera’s naturally busty and curvy silky body and fun loving personality made her an instant favorite.  A new super pornstar was born!  Her roles in various porn movies, all featuring Tera in a hardcore yet classy manner led her to winning numerous honors for her film work including the AVN Award for Best New Starlet in 2000 and the Hot d’ Or Award for “The Best New American Starlet” at the Cannes Film Festival that same year.  As her porn career took off so did her desire to go more mainstream and she later hosted the popular “Nightcalls 411” program for Playboy TV and has been on dozens of mainstream entertainment shows.

The half-Jewish porn queen was considering leaving the business early in 2000 but instead just made a few select films due to the increasing demand for her and Teramania was born!  Her interactive videos, mostly in the POV niches, like My Plaything from New Sensations studios, were all number-one bestsellers and are all still selling today.  Tera became a Penthouse Pet and a Hustler Honey in February of 2000, which soon led to Tera being featured on the covers and in layouts of virtually every conceivable men’s magazine.

At the end of 2009, Tera’s life changes completly.  She and husband Evan Seinfeld ( a Jew from Brooklyn and no known relation to Jerry Seinfeld) former lead singer of the group Biohazard, announced their divorce in September, but chose to remain business partners. In December, Tera released her memoir Sinner Takes All. Though Tera is no longer performing, she remains one of the biggest stars to emerge from the XXX world into the mainstream of pop culture.  The half Jewish pornstar joined and even surpassed the fame and fortune of famous Jewish pornstars before her such as Nina Hartley, Ron Jeremy, and leading the way for new and more wild Jewish pornstars such as Joanna Angel.  To view Tera Patrick’s porn movies click on Israel Sex Guide Movies.  For just a taste of Tera’s porn work we give you here a free preview from her mega movie Teradise Island Anal Fever, released in 2006, in which she performed her first ever Anal scene and behind the scenes interviews and shots.  Enjoy!
