Check out this excellent Tera Patrick interview at the pop culture site 411mania.com.
Here’s an excerpt:
TONY: What I’ve always found fascinating about the adult entertainment industry is the fact that a lot of people involved in the business are extremely intelligent people. I think sometimes people might think, “Oh, they’re just a bunch of sleazy perverts.” Do you think a lot of people in the adult entertainment industry get a bad rap?
Tera Patrick: I think that that’s definitely true. I mean, I say to people that there’s definitely a stigma attached to being in this industry is that a lot of people assume, “Oh, she must have been abused, or she must be a drug addict.” But I always say that in my line of work and for what I’m trying to promote out there is I always say empowerment over exploitation. For me, I’ve been able to start my own business, and I made the best of what god gave me, which was my looks, and I think that I’ve been able to kind of propel being a porn star into being a sex symbol and just being intelligent and making people realize that there’s all sorts of advantages to being in this industry. It’s great money. I think that I’ve been able to be recognized as another Marilyn Monroe of my time. I mean, Marilyn Monroe posed nude, and Betty Page posed nude. I mean, back then, there was such a stigma. I mean, think about all these Hollywood actresses who have posed nude and have done nude scenes in movies. Nudity shouldn’t be such a stigma. It’s a beautiful thing. The human body is a beautiful thing. And if Kim Basinger can do a hardcore and full-on nude sex scene in Nine 1/2 Weeks, well, then I’m just taking it a step further.
