American model and pornographic actress Tera Patrick in 2006 was included in the list of 100 sexiest women, published in the men’s magazine For Him Magazine.

Tera Patrick Childhood and youth
Linda Ann Hopkins, who became famous under the pseudonyms Tera Patrick, Sandy Jordan, Tera Hopkins and Brooke Thomas, was born in 1976 in the American state of Montana in a family of half English, half Dutch David Hopkins and his young and frivolous wife, a former carrier of Thai blood.
After her mother unexpectedly decided to return to her homeland, the girl and her father settled in San Francisco, where she attended a comprehensive school and took courses at the Barbizon agency. Thanks to her height of 175 cm, a weight of about 55 kg and an attractive appearance, the future star was noticed by representatives of a Japanese modeling agency, and long before she came of age she signed a working contract with them.
In Tokyo, during the first photo shoot, Linda was drunk with champagne mixed with Valium and, in a semi-conscious state, was raped, brought to one of the apartments for the night. But, having a strong character, she was able to cope with this tragedy and continued to pose in front of the cameras, and spent the money she received on alcohol and outfits, secretly dreaming to conquer the whole world.
In conversations with her father, the girl avoided topics related to her lifestyle, but somehow he guessed that there were men and sex there. As a result, her daughter had to interrupt her career as an Asian model and, without reaching fame, returned to America to go to university.
With a bachelor’s degree in microbiology, Linda worked as a nurse in an ambulance for six months, but the desire to return to filming soon prevailed over her prudence. Once her photos appeared in the men’s magazines Playboy and Penthouse and brought Linda the Girl of the Month award, and then she received a more prestigious title and became known as Pet of the Year.

However, having established the activities of The Tera Patrick Agency and a production center called Teravision, the star returned to active work and signed a contract with Vivid Video, which allowed him to return to the set.
In 2006, at a specialized exhibition Exxxotica Miami, two films were presented, starring Patrick, one of which was Desperate and the other was TERA Patrick’s Fashion Underground.
In the future, the filmography of the porn actress was replenished with such works as “Without a Flaw”, Porndogs: The Adventures of Sadie and “Where There Are No Boys No. 18”, which brought awards to the Adam Film World Guide, FAME, F.O.X.E. and Venus Award.
