I bought this book based upon a review in Loaded magazine. I have not been disappointed. It's a great book and although it's basically just 5000 photos of this bloke's wife in various states of undress, it really does give you an insight into their world. I have thoroughly enjoyed it and although there are explicit images inside, it's very tasteful and engaging. I would recommend people to see for themselves.

In many ways this book sets the bar for what good erotica should be. It provides an intimate glimpse into the marriage between renown photographer Petter Hegre and his stunningly beautiful wife Svanborg. They met in 1996 when she volunteered for a photo-shoot and they've been together since then, marrying in 1998. Petter's been shooting her ever since that first day and this book is the result of that monumental effort (he's shot over 6000 photos). What is so inspiring, and what many people will undoubtedly fail to appreciate, is that Hegre has created a holistic documentary of their life together. My Wife features scenes from their family life, images from their travels together, and an image or two of their wedding day. This is most elegantly juxtaposed with a huge amount of erotic imagery. Much of it is of Svanborg in the nude. But it's more than that - there is some amazing sexual (and oftentimes kinky) imagery here, where we see Svanborg with other women and with Petter. We've never seen a body of work that so seamlessly interweaves an adventurous sex life within the blessed union of marriage. Delightfully wholesome and sinfully sexy all in one - this book is amazing!
