Porn Star Honey Wilder lived up to her last name in over 70 hardcore releases during the 1980's. Honey Wilder's a thin, quite busty older woman with bold brunette hair and a wicked look in her eyes. Honey Wilder's got a sweet disposition and sparkling personality that come through no matter what role she's playing, making her on-screen takes all the more appealing and believable.
Honey Wilder was born and raised in the Texas Panhandle, and got into adult films after watching a few films and thinking 'I can do that!' A bit disappointed in having to drop her dreams of becoming a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader She strolled out to Southern California and soon was grinding her way through sex film after sex film. Honey Wilder's Texas accent got her lots of roles as the debauched country girl, notably in 'Wild Dallas Honey,' her first starring role. Honey Wilder played a housewife who can't get over her first love, a rodeo star who broke her heart.
Throughout the 1980s Honey Wilder represented the "older woman" segment of X-films. Often cast in supporting roles, she was known for her good acting, good body and energetic performances. Her best work was often as a "mother"- type figure, which she played in such films as the "Taboo" series (I-V) where she starred opposite Kay Parker, and as Traci Lords' mother in It's My Body (1985) (V). To see the stunning performance of confusion, passion and sibling torment, is to reveal a turning point in adult film itself. To admit to bringing to film the inner-family interaction was a bold gamble in any field of thought that paid off supremely so for the edgy directors. They called this one right playing in the roles of the hand picked cast as in Taboo realizing a true homespun homerun. She also distinguished herself as the scorned wife in Wild Dallas Honey (1982). Her voice has long been used for the "Surgeon General" disclaimer on VCA Pictures.
Honey Wilder established herself as one of the better adult actresses with her tour de force turn in the film. She continued to land plenty of roles, usually cast as the older woman who seduces a younger man. Honey Wilder is still considered one of the best actresses and most riveting sexual performers of the decade. Check out her sizzling work in 'Taboo II' and we're sure you'll agree.
Where is she Now? (2003) Works in set decoration and production design for mainstream film and television productions.
From A Fan:
What is it about Honey Wilder? I remember the first time I saw her in a scene. It was 1994 and I was a young man who was watching Taboo II. From then on I was hooked on her and have been that way ever since. She has that special something that make certain porn stars famous. She has that special sexuality that pours from her pores. After Taboo II, I enjoyed Taboo III and several other Wilder classics. Every scene is the same and that isn't a bad thing because it is her sexuality. It is an insatiable appetite for sex. Perhaps it was that sultry voice or her Texas Panhandle background that gave her the engeritic ability to perform in adult movies.
Plus her body was perfectly natural. No fake breasts or facial surgery here. Totally natural and you cannot beat that. Are there other porn vixens who are better? Maybe so, but I cannot think of a star that has that natural ability to be so sexually open ended. We miss you Honey, they don't make them like you anymore.
Some websites when they spoke of Honey by stating "Wilder possessed a very provocative physique and a genuinely sensitive demeanor, a busty older woman with lank black hair and a wicked look in her eyes who consistently gets sex charged in no time flat. Honey Wilder's sparkling personality that come through no matter what role she's playing, making her on-screen sexing all the more appealing and believable. Along with Kay Parker, Honey Wilder was considered one of the best actresses in adult films from the golden era."
Taboo II was one of the first adult films that I ever saw. Honey Wilder took my breath away during her scenes with Kevin James and other than Christy Canyon and Bridgette Monet I have not found a star that has outshined her. In fact Taboo II is the finest single performance that I've ever seen from a adult film star. I wore out the parts of my video tape that has her scenes with Kevin. Thanks Honey, your fans miss you!
A nice interview of Honey is here:
Editorial originally published in November 1982
While sitting in her car waiting for pal Paul Thomas to finish up a hard day’s shoot, Honey Wilder was summoned out of her car and into the producer’s office. After a few cursory spins around the room, Honey was hired on the spot for a part in the film they were currently shooting – entitled Wild Dallas Honey. She had been a businesswoman prior to this, and now was thrown into the world of XXX. Luckily, she had pals like Thomas and Kay Parker to help her through those first rough moments. “I’m new at all this,” Honey told me the other day, “You all have to help me out the best you can.”
Coming from a woman who believes that you can be dainty and feminine as well as strong and aggressive, this is an interesting remark. Honey may be new to the porn business, but this secure, intelligent woman needs no help from anyone. She knows what she wants, and is on her way straight to the top. “If there’s anyone I believe in, it’s me. If I fall on my face, I’ll pick myself up and brush myself off. You just have to go for it.” “Going for it” does not include participating in the antiquated notion of the casting couch. “I would never suck my way to the top; you can get more from people by just being straight.”
Although she’s only been in porn for one year, Honey already has a list of credits that are quite impressive. In addition to her role in Wild Dallas Honey, Honey also starred in Taboo 2, 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, Honey replied dreamily, “He certainly was to me!”
Honey 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, Honey 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?” She had a point there, so I questioned her no further. “I plan on working my way east, as far as the men are concerned,” this L.A. based starlet giggled. “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 Civera…”
“We have a responsibility in this industry,” Honey told me excitedly, her sense of missionary fervor radiating from her like a golden glow. “We can change the way people relate to each other by showing them how to really communicate sexually; love can really change the way people live.”
You’ll notice this humanist bent while watching Honey on film, particularly in her role in Society Affairs. Her lengthy scene with Harry Reems is one of the hottest performances to hit the celluloid in years. No stiff, inflexible actress, Honey is one of the “new breed” of porn stars who believe in what they’re doing, enjoy it, and try to bring as much energy to their performances as if they were performing Ibsen. Tigr, Kay Parker, Sharon Mitchell, Annette Haven, Sharon Kane – to name only a few, are conscientious actresses who take their work seriously, and have the attitude, “I want to do the best I can and have fun doing it, too.” Honey is interested in portraying tender, affectionate love on screen, with the softness and delicacy that characterizes some of the best lovemaking; she’s doing one helluva job, too.
If you think you’d fit the bill, Honey is currently available and on the lookout for a new beau. Her ideal situation is “a one-on-one relationship with one man,” so why not drop her a line care of The Little Black Book? You never know, maybe you’ll be lucky enough to get a taste of Honey!
She appeared in her first porn film in 1981, a feature called Swedish Erotica 39. She soon became associated with portrayals of a seductress, and in particular for playing older women inappropriately seducing younger men. She also appeared in the Taboo series.
She maintains a strong cult following in the adult movie industry, and is a member of the AVN Hall of Fame. She retired in 1988. It was reported in 2003 that Wilder was working in set decoration and production design for mainstream film and television productions.
Way back in the late-'70s to mid-'80s, being an "older woman" in the adult industry wasn't quite the encumbrance that it seems to be today. Slim, busty Texan Honey Wilder was able to parlay her advanced age to a level of porno fame during that era in titles such as Taboo 2-4, Famous Ta Ta's, Wild Dallas Honey, Genital Hospital, Sperminator, Bubble Gum, Great Sexpectations, Lesbionic Women, Lust Tango in Paris, Wilder at Heart, Night Hunger and Play It Again Samantha. She also played Amber Lynn's mother in If My Mother Only Knew. AVN was unable to locate Wilder for an interview, but we spoke with industry historian Jim Holliday, who offered a few recollections of this month's Hall of Fame inductee.
"She was an occasional lead; often support. She performed in older mature woman roles, meaning she was always somebody like Kevin James' mother or older sister, or the foxy widow, or something like that. Sort of the equivalent of Cheri Taylor a decade earlier, in that her best quality was an unbridled enthusiasm for sex."
While Holliday noted that Wilder was never known for any sexual specialties (no 400 chopsticks up this lady's ass), he spoke highly of her acting abilities.
"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.
