First Adult Film Star to Grace Cover of FHM

FHM is the fastest growing men's magazine in both the US and UK -- and for the first time the US version has put an adult film star on its cover. Tera Patrick was recently on the cover of the UK version, making it one of their highest selling issues ever. Because of that success, the magazine has given Tera the US cover for the month of July. Tera tells TMZ that 16 years of modeling finally paid off.
And if getting the cover wasn't enough, Tera's husband Evan says FHM Executive Editor Sam Barclay said it is not only the sexiest and best looking FHM cover ever, but it's one of the most arresting images Sam has ever seen in his life. Wow.
During the 12-hour shoot in Manhattan, Tera's make-up artist's second job was to continuously lube up the model with lotion. Tera is so happy with the results, she joked with TMZ she's considering hiring someone to be her personal lotionizer -- any takers?
In the middle of the shoot, Tera's toy fox terrier, Chopper, ran into a neighboring studio and dropped a present for the occupants. The photo shoot's neighbors were none to happy with the gift and later came knocking to "inform" her about the incident.
