Eric the Merman



When we here at Infomaniac first heard there was a man swimming underwater in Florida using a LATEX TAIL, I immediately thought our AyeM8y had toppled off his inflatable pool mattress and into a world of fantasy.

Wrong! It's 22-year-old Eric Ducharme, a self-proclaimed MERMAN obsessed with mermaiding.

“I do eat, breathe and sleep mermaids. It’s my lifestyle. It’s the path in life that I have chosen. When I put on a tail I feel transformed. I’m starting to enter a different world when I hit the water. It’s taken me a really long time to understand my place in life. Being underwater, I feel like I’m away from the world."

Eric drives more than an hour and a half outside of where he lives, three times a week, to swim as a merman.



His family and his boyfriend fully support his mermaiding ways.

And he's "making a splash" with his own business called The Mertailor. The Mertailor manufactures custom-made mermaid/merman tails from silicone, urethanes, and latex rubbers...

How about you, Bitches?

Is the mermaiding lifestyle for you?

  1. I am all about the merfolks, in fact, in Florida I actually have a fair degree of fame for creating one life-sized sculpture that peers south over US Highway #1 and a mosaic tile mermaid about thirty-five feet tall. Both have been there for over twenty years now. I think you can see the sculpture on Google street view, she's about two miles north of the Pineda Causeway, riverside...

      Do you have a photo of your creations somewhere in your extensive archives?

      MISTRESS MADDIE: Wallingford makes an excellent peanut butter pie too.

    3. I found out this morning that the sculpture was destroyed by a storm and replaced by a mannequin (hideous). But I think I have a photograph that I can scan. Let me finish my coffee & I'll look...

    4. A shame about your artwork, Wally.

      They should have commissioned you to create a new one.

    3. Funny enough, my mind is as filthy as Norma's and Maddie's, as this was the first question that came to my mind as well. He is cute... Jx

    4. JON: According to Eric's website, his phone number is available upon request.

      Why not call him up and ask him yourself?

      Or say that you’re asking on behalf of Norma.

  5. Over the years, I've known several DuCharmes, and I have to say they've all been very ducharming indeed. And crazy as bedbugs. Bless.
