Honey Wilder's first ambition was to be a Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader. Fortunately for her fans, she didn't make the cut. After watching a few adult films, she thought to herself, "I can do that!" She made her way to Southern California and was soon grinding her way through sex film after sex film. Her first appearance was in Swedish Erotica Film 451: Royal Lesson (1980), a short ten minute vignette where Honey got a taste of her first on-screen facial. Her partner was Kevin James (AKA Kevin Gibson), who became one of her favorites to work with. Wilder's Texas accent got her lots of roles as the debauched country girl, notably in Wild Dallas Honey (1982), her first starring role where she played a housewife who can't get over her first love, a rodeo star who broke her heart.Big Break & Favorite Costars
Although she was thin, Wilder was also quite busty, and her sweet disposition and sparkling personality shone through, making her on-screen performances seem all the more appealing and natural. She became associated with convincing portrayals of a seductress playing and older woman inappropriately seducing younger men. Her big break came in the Taboo series where she portrayed a mother who engages in a relationship with her son. In addition to her role in Taboo series, Wilder also starred in Society Affairs and Satisfactions. Her performance in Society Affairs was memorable, to say the least. When asked whether Harry Reems was as good a lay as his reputation would have you believe, she replied dreamily, "He certainly was to me!"
Honey Wilder had no trouble thinking of her favorite female sex partner on screen. "Definitely Tigr," she said. "Tigr is just wonderful; she really communicates with her lovers." Of the men, however, she had more of a problem. "Baby, I've been with the best," Honey said, "Harry Reems, Eric Edwards, Kevin Gibson, R.J. Reynolds, Randy West, John Leslie - you expect me to pick one of those? I plan on working my way east, as far as the men are concerned. My experiences have only been with West Coast based men; now I'd like to give the East Coast guys a try - Jamie Gillis, Joey Silvera." And she had them all from East and West Coast.Notable Films and Niches
Wilder was sought after by the best production companies of the time, such as Leisure Time Entertainment, VCX, Essex Video / Electric Hollywood, Western Visuals, and more. She performed in niches such as hardcore guy/girl scenes, lesbian content, and masturbation only scenes. Notable films for Wilder include, but are not limited to, Blazing Bedrooms (LA Video), Forbidden Fruit (Paradise Visuals), lesbian performances in the Wet Video series Girls Who Dig Girls parts 1, 4, and 11, Never Sleep Alone (Caballero Home Video), Triple Xposure (Vidco Entertainment), and a solo performance in Bedtime Tales (Essex Video / Electric Hollywood).Funny Lady
Porn historian and director Jim Holliday offered a few recollections of Honey Wilder."She was very funny; a good comedienne-type. In that period Lisa DeLeeuw was sort of the Lucille Ball of porn; humongous breasted, brash and wacky - and Honey was a brunette, deep sexy voice; also very funny. She did the older schoolteacher seducing the young student kind of thing," a role she made iconic in the film Private Teacher.Retirement
Honey Wilder established herself as one of the better adult actresses with her tour de force turn in the film. She is still considered one of the best actresses and most riveting sexual performers of the decade. Never showing an interest in breaking into mainstream acting, she maintains a strong cult following in the adult movie industry. After appearing in more than 70 movies, Honey Wilder retired in 1986. It was reported in 2003 that Wilder was working in set decoration and production design for mainstream film and television productions. Her voice has long been used for the "Surgeon General" disclaimer on VCA Pictures.Porn Awards
