Pet of the Year Runner Up 2002

From the February, 2002, issue of Penthouse Magazine. February is clearly Tera Patrick’s month. She was our Pet of the Month back in February 2000, and now she’s your overwhelming choice for Pet of the Year Runner-Up. As this special portfolio proves, the 25-year-old brunette’s brash and sassy star shines brighter than ever. It’s no wonder she stole our hearts ... and never gave them back. “Thank you, readers, for supporting me and for keeping up the Penthouse spirit,” Tera says excitedly. “And thank you, Bob Guccione, for inviting me onboard in the first place. Penthouse has treated me very well, and I’m honored to be chosen. Only 12 girls are picked every year to be centerfolds, and I was lucky enough to be one of them. But to win Runner-Up — that makes me even luckier!” Of course, we consider ourselves the fortunate ones to have the opportunity to bask in Tera’s bountiful assets. To thank her for this she will receive, among other prizes, an amethyst and diamond-studded Runner-Up key, designed exclusively for Penthouse by Michael Hayden, Inc. We know she’ll wear it with pride. When we were introduced to the 35D-24-36 head-turner in her Pet of the Month pictorial, she made no secret of her smoldering lust for firemen. “There’s something about them that I find irresistible,” Tera told us. But if she was hot for these guys back then, she’s burning up for them now: The events of September 11 have only further ignited her flames. “They’re heroes,” she says of the men in uniform. “Who else would run into a burning building to save you and your family? These guys are so confident and hard-working. They’re rough on the outside, but soft on the inside. That’s just the kind of man I’d like to marry.” Tera has no plans to settle down just yet, but any man who does strike her fancy should know how to take control of a situation. “I like to be picked up by my date if we’re going out,” she says. “He should have flowers, he should make reservations for dinner ... and then he should be prepared to lose all of his own reservations in a nice long and loving night.” What else gets Tera going? “I like a guy who knows how to use his tongue, and I like my sex a little rough. I enjoy being manhandled a bit. I like to start out rough — doggie-style, perhaps — and then finish nice and gentle — missionary position, maybe. Some nights, watch out — my guys really work up a sweat! I’m in love with my body, I’m not ashamed of sex, and I’ll try anything. Anything a man wants, he usually gets from me. I’m a nurturer.” It’s a very similar quality that lures Tera back to school to earn a degree in nursing. “I like to take care of people,” she says. “There’s such satisfaction in that.” These days, though, her studies are on hold while she takes her modeling career to the next level. “I love what I’m doing right now — I have a dream job. What I do makes a lot of people happy, and I appreciate that my work is enjoyed by others.” The love Tera has for her work is what makes her so successful as a model, says Penthouse photographer Suze Randall. “I’ve worked with a lot of girls,” Randall tells us, “and Tera is tops in the field. She knows how to relate to the camera, and the lens just loves her. She’s a lot of fun, very beautiful, supremely sexy. She’s just amazing — a wonderful choice for Runner-Up, and a real class act.” “I love to travel,” our Runner-Up reports. “I made a Penthouse video in Costa Rica, and I loved it there. But I’m especially captivated by Europe — all the culture and customs. Next year I hope to go sailing on the Mediterranean. That would be a dream trip.” As long as she’s dreaming, there’s one fantasy Tera says she’s longing to fulfill. “I want to be blindfolded, and have sex with two men at the same time. I don’t want to see — I just want to use my mouth to feel. Not being able to use my eyes would heighten my other senses and make me more perceptive, more sensitive to touch. I can’t think of anything that would be as erotic. I know I’m a handful,” she says with a laugh, “but I’m definitely worth it.” We don’t have to take another vote, Tera, to know that millions of fans would certainly agree!

Pet of the Month February 2000

February Pet of the Month Tera Patrick knows that it’s dangerous to play with fire, but she can’t help turning up the heat ... especially when it’s with just the type of man who knows how to fan her smoldering desire — and then cool her down after the blaze.” I love a man in uniform — a fireman’s uniform, that is,” says our California Pet. “There’s something about fire fighters that I find irresistible. They’re very masculine and have a certain combination of strength and softness — I guess it’s a caring and concern for others — that makes them really hot. I flirt with the guys at the local engine company all the time. If I could, I’d be out chasing fire trucks all day.” Tera is one hot ticket herself, a sizzling 35D-24-36 package that our lady proudly proclaims is “all natural.” Part Thai and part British, her exotic looks have been landing her modeling jobs since the age of 13. “I started my career as a fashion-and-makeup model. I have a real girl’s body, and I’m not afraid to show it off. The first time I decided to model nude, I practically ripped off my outfit,” she confesses. “The photographer was shocked at my complete lack of inhibition, but I loved the fact that I could express my sexuality. To be honest, sometimes I feel so caged inside my clothes that it’s a real pleasure to be able to work without them!” “My career has afforded me the financial freedom to continue my education,” the 23-year-old says. “I’ll be going for my doctorate in microbiology at U.S.C. this spring.” “I recently bought myself a ranch in Argentina, where I’m raising llamas. I spied the property a year ago when I was vacationing there, and just fell in love with it.” “I’m a real outdoors person,” Tera reports. “I grew up in Montana and would go camping, fishing, and hunting. My uncle and I would go big-game hunting, mostly for elk and caribou. We ate whatever we caught — no trophy hunts for me. The only thing that gets mounted in my house is a man!” “Between work and school, I don’t have much time to relax. Often I’ll skip going out on a Saturday night just to snag some downtime and curl up with a good book.” “Of course I’d rather curl up with a hot man than a steamy novel. In fact, I recently got to live out one of my fantasies,” she reveals. “I finally caught the eye of a fireman, and we had sex on top of the fire truck. It was so exciting knowing the fire chief might catch us. Unfortunately, the fire bell went off before my man did.” She says with a laugh, “He got me so hot he had to come to my house that night and hose me head to toe!” Tera, we’d all like to wet you down.
