David Pevsner (him/his)

David Pevsner is an LA-based TV/film/theatre actor, writer, composer, and model. He has a blog of erotic photos and videos on OnlyFans, and has become an anti-shame, anti-ageism, pro-nudity and sex, activist. His new book Damn Shame, a memoir told through the lens of body shame and sexuality, was just released by Random House Canada.
Over the course of his 40-year career in show business, David Pevsner has done it all. He’s acted on Broadway, off-Broadway, in independent films and numerous TV network shows including Grey’s Anatomy, Modern Family and Criminal Minds.

Away from the stage and the television cameras, Pevsner has dedicated himself to exploring his deepest sexual fantasies. In his late ‘30s, he became a male escort and over the last several years has attracted a large international fan base through his blog of erotic and nude photographs celebrating his 62-year-old body.

DAMN SHAME is David 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. 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.

With this remarkable book, Pevsner gives a loud and powerful voice to a generation of mature men who have been conditioned to believe from society (and especially younger men) that they are sexually irrelevant, old and undesirable. In a world where everything is about youth and beauty, Pevsner asks who sets the definition of beauty? His story goes in directions that many could not imagine, but the lessons learned through his experiences will resonate with readers everywhere. You can purchase his book on David’s linktr.ee “David.Pevsner”
