On the Menu Tonight

From the first time I saw Daryl Hannah in the movie Splash, I was enamored and fascinated by mermaids and merfolk! And then I was really enthralled when I came out as gay, and found out about mermen!!!!! And now after all these years a merman has finally surfaced.......and he is cute as hell!



When Eric Ducharme slips into his handmade fin to explore the crystal clear waters of Florida’s natural springs as a merman, he says he’s mentally transported as well. So is the unique, eye-catching life of this Florida man who says he eats, sleeps and breathes mermaids while physically looking and acting like one as often as time allows. 'It's a lifestyle. It's a path in life that I have chosen,' says the 22-year-old from Crystal River who’s one of the latest characters to appear on TLC's My Crazy Obsession. Three times a week Ducharme drives more than an hour and a half to swim in one of his shimmering handmade suits at a natural spring.


Today he has transformed his beloved hobby into a business, using silicone, urethanes, and latex rubbers to create shimmering wet suits featuring life-like colors and textures of scales and flowing fins.


 
'I have tails that are as real as fish you just caught on your boat, which are available to every aspiring mermaid and merman who dreams of life in the sea,' Ducharme's website, The Mertailor.


  

Thought as bizarre of a 'lifestyle' activity as it is, it's one his family and even boyfriend have accepted - if not without initial astonishment. Figures....a hunky merman finally arrives and he has a boyfriend!!! I wonder he has a merfriend?

  4. His nipples look like they need to be nibbled on. Where's the butter? He looks so enjoyably cute with the tail.

  9. Maddie,
    No lie, the motto of my third restaurant that was on the Indian River was: "We Brake for Mermaids". I've brought a few to life...
