Reverie Recovery “The Erotic View”

My Erotic Christmas book; Reverie Recovery “The Erotic View” is out now! Order in the next 15 days and receive the book for $50.00! If you are a model interested I will post a model list so you can order.


Over 400 images and writings of Shane Deruise. Deruise finds a fresh approach to erotica and sexuality through an examination of human nature and the fault lines of female emotional tensions. To put it succinctly, Deruise “is less generous and more aggressive in this era of his body of work.” At the heart of Deruise’s photographic urges are the exquisite tension between the fear of intimacy and the yearning for acceptance, as well as the desire to create art. Deruise’s vision is a unique marriage between life and lust.

From the Artist:
You ask me sarcastically what my work is, I work to build my soul. I work to glance under the skirt of the world. The lacerated lines aren’t congruous anymore; too plain to be veins, and all the pretty things we bought her, and all the dirty things we’ve saved. The wet, nightmarish things. Breathing on our hips, or gripping knuckles down your pants. Stomach knots tightening nylon knots, and your cup is spilling over. I have learned how to dutifully untie those old knots, to exchange one for another, sewing images around a so-called waist, a garter; not for your body, but for your soul.

REVERIE RECOVERY “The Erotic View” by Shane Deruise.
Keepsake Publishing, NC2010. 200 pages, numerous color and black-and-white photographs & memoirs, 8×10″.

…and the best that you can hope for is to die in your sleep…

i find myself wondering all the time… where do your friends go through the course of your life… the people you love and rely on the most, simply fade out of your life, and then for a brief second they return, just to vanish again…
