I loved David’s journey to zero shame about his body, his sexuality and himself. Damn Shame has my ideal combo of racy, illuminating and idiosyncratic storytelling that transports you into a stranger’s life and mind. And – or beware – there is a lot of penis!” –Alan Cumming


Damn Shame: A Memoir of Desire, Defiance and Show Tunes

Over the course of his 35-year career in show business, David Pevsner has done it all. He’s acted on Broadway, off-Broadway, in independent films and on numerous TV network shows including <em>Grey’s Anatomy, Modern Family and Criminal Minds.</em>

As he continues his career in entertainment, Pevsner has also dedicated himself to exploring his deepest sexual fantasies. In his late 30s he became a mature male escort and, over the last several years, has attracted a large international fan base through his blog of erotic photographs celebrating nudity and sexuality.

<em>Damn Shame</em> is Pevsner’s incredible story and is a passionate and poignant look at one man’s journey from a thin, shy boy ashamed of his body and sexuality to a defiant, fearless everyman exploring his erotic desires, everything from leather and S&amp;M to nude/erotic/hardcore modelling. Along the way, he fights back against society’s demonization of gay sex, body shaming. and ageism while pursuing his own very personal definition of success and seeking love, validation, and self-esteem.

<em>Damn Shame</em> gives a loud and powerful voice to a generation of mature men who have been conditioned to believe from society (and especially younger members of the gay community) that they are sexually irrelevant, old and undesirable. Pevsner’s life story goes in directions that many couldn’t imagine, but the lessons learned through his experiences will resonate with readers of every age.
