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). 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.
