Welcome to the Blog!

Tony Cavanagh welcomes you to his world of books (first and foremost!) and to the things he loves best on the other pages here. After six blogging years, I’m having something of a reorganisation and culling many old posts and associated images to make room for new things. This blog home page offers more information about my books and will also signpost additions to the ‘Fitness, Acrobatics and Gymnastics‘ page (see Index) and also to the ‘Gay Expression‘ page – these being the themes which run through my first three books. Purchasing books helps to support the blog, and most readers rate them well!

Before we get there, there is a fourth book published October 2017 and a fifth half completed. So let’s start with the most recent offering:

A ‘reluctantly’ gay boy, cast out of his community for discovering his sexuality… can he find the true meaning of his life and his true love, or does fate have more s*** in store for him? Best classified as ‘Romantic Fiction’, I think, the book explores Native American beliefs as his shape-shifting ‘spirit guide’ struggles to make things right for him. Darker influences are also at work, however, and his life holds many surprises and disappointments before the final dénouement. Click on the cover for a link to buy direct, and support this blog… e-versions of all the books are also available. And, if  you must, because they don’t pay the author much, there is Amazon…

Three earlier books, written in the first person, chart the life and times of a British teen relocated to the USA who quickly finds another like-minded exiled Brit with whom he shares a love of acrobatic sports and, very shortly after, with whom he shares his gay love. Surrounded by a caring group of sporting (and mainly gay) friends, things nevertheless start to go badly wrong and there are clearly people around who do not wish them well. They discover a life as a touring show… and also a future life as gay dads, but there is much else waiting in store for them before they can be ‘happy ever after’…

Notice too that these covers combine locations of the stories combined with acrobatic images and some Chinese characters: the significance of these emerges early in the first book.

So there we are – welcome. Scroll down for the latest posts, or cross to the other pages for Fitness, Acrobatic and Gymnastics images –  a lifestyle we enthusiastically support – or to Gay Expression for  occasional musings and images related to the gay lifestyle. You will not find porn here.

This blog is also for guys who admire other guys who put real effort into their physical development. On that ‘fitness’ page I encourage you to think how good the fitness lifestyle is for you. The rules are simple:

  1. Make an effort to improve your own fitness this year (you’re NEVER too old);
  2. Enjoy the pictures (and comment please on what you see, and feel free to ‘FOLLOW’);
  3. Buy a book (preferably, all of them) to support the continuation of the blog!

AND: you can even try combining the reading with your workout!

The blog is essentially G-rated; the earlier books get a little explicit from time to time about gay guys doing what gay guys do – you don’t have to be gay to enjoy them – just be gay-friendly. 

And now, as they used to say on the old TV game shows: “Come on Down!”⇓ or alternatively Sideways (to the other pages!)

*** Many pictures  on all of the pages… like the one on the left illustrating what we love to do… will sticky-2-readenlarge if you click on them ***

Woodland Capers / Dumbbell Work

Two quite unrelated additions to the site today, each of 16 pictures on the Fitness, Acrobatics and Gymnastics page (https://tonycavanagh.com/fitness-acrobatics-and-gymnastics/).

Training (occasionally!) and enjoying oneself (always!) in the woods…

…and then, a collection of dumbbells being used to strengthen the arms and shoulders or as background to a great in-gym physique photo and, occasionally, used for other types of training (as Edward Upcott demonstrates below left)…

…and, dare I mention that’s there’s a fair bit of wandering through the woods and bathing in woodland streams in Let The Future Find Me, as illustrated on the cover here! You might like to give it a try….?

Three Themes Today

On the Gay Expression page (https://tonycavanagh.com/gay-expression/), we have some thoughts on the acceptability of homosexuality from some famous names past and present, with accompanying images of gay tenderness.

On the Fitness, Acrobatics and Gymnastics page (https://tonycavanagh.com/fitness-acrobatics-and-gymnastics/) twenty images of groups of fit guys having fun in various ways and a 20-strong midweek muscle miscellany.

If you want even more on any of these themes, I could direct you towards some entertaining books on the subjects (first three) and a story of gay love thwarted despite the best efforts of a spirit guide in conflict with a more malevolent spirit (Let The Future Find Me). Enjoy it all, especially the books if you will as they support the blog. ‘Bye for now.

A Backward Glance…

So hard to find pictures illustrating good development of the back. Finally, I got enough together for a new addition to the Fitness, Acrobatics and Gymnastics page (https://tonycavanagh.com/fitness-acrobatics-and-gymnastics/).

Here’s how it’s done!

Feeling Low in the Water…

I finished a show last night dripping blood on to Dave’s head. At some point, someone’s finger or toe nail must have caught me and I got a gash across my nose and cheek which I didn’t notice, being preoccupied with balancing on my arm on Dave’s head… until the blood ran into my eye… of course, in the ‘line-up’ which followed, my colleagues thought that it was hilarious… “Nice Dracula effect, specially for you”, said Jack, acting as impromptu MC…

So now I’m sporting a large plaster across my face, maybe feeling a bit like the 20 guys I just posted ‘Hanging Their Heads’, usually through gazing at their abs instead of smiling at the camera. And then I added 20 more pictures of guys “Enjoying the Water”, which made me feel much better.

You can enjoy these on the Fitness, Acrobatics and Gymnastics page (https://tonycavanagh.com/fitness-acrobatics-and-gymnastics/).

The Perfect Gymnast Body… and More…

…I mean THIS little guy…

Amazing upper body development from all the hard training on the bars. And he looks pretty happy about it too!

I’ve added ten more gymnasts for you to enjoy on the Fitness, Acrobatics and Gymnasts page (https://tonycavanagh.com/fitness-acrobatics-and-gymnastics/) along with a dozen guys proudly holding their heads up high about their own physical development.

PLUS… a little this and that on the Gay Expression page (https://tonycavanagh.com/gay-expression/). Enjoy, then reward me with a book recommendation or a purchase or four would be nice!

Pals Sharing The Experience…

…whatever it is!

There’s something about doing ‘it’ (no, not that!) with a good friend which more than doubles the pleasure. OK, we can talk about doing ‘that’  another time!

I’ve put 20 more on the Fitness, Acrobatics and Gymnastics page (https://tonycavanagh.com/fitness-acrobatics-and-gymnastics).

Lots of this’ and ‘that’ in these books, by the way! The printed book is coming back ‘in’, but there are e-versions as well for the screen-addicted…

The newest book is a little different as the ‘hero’ is very much on his own for much of the time, looking for ‘it’…

Speedos At The Ready!

It’s warming up! Even in Wales, where we have our pied a terre, I believe it reached 25C today! Time to break out the Speedos or, as increasingly seems to be the case, to appear in public in one’s underwear…

There are 20 more ‘hot’ pics added on the Fitness, Acrobatics and Gymnastics page (https://tonycavanagh.com/fitness-acrobatics-and-gymnastics/)

Wrestling, A Little Loving, and A Muscle Miscellany

Lots of new pictures added on the site today. On the Fitness, Acrobatics and Gymnastics page (https://tonycavanagh.com/fitness-acrobatics-and-gymnastics/) we have a load of new wrestling pictures and 20 ‘Muscleaneous’ photos for fitness inspiration. Then, on the Gay Expression page (https://tonycavanagh.com/gay-expression/), a dozen new delightful couples expressing their love for each other in different ways.

Here are some additional ‘tasters’ for you on these themes…

And, talking of gay love, those first three books are packed with it whilst this fourth one is a different take on that theme – gay love lost, loneliness, the search… and the outcome…

Boys’ Secret Passion…

Well, that’s one way of explaining a gay boy’s passion for things other than the girls, I suppose! Anyway, as you’re here, you probably agree, and I’ve just posted on the Fitness, Acrobatics and Gymnastics page (https://tonycavanagh.com/fitness-acrobatics-and-gymnastics/) a double helping – 40 pictures – of boys who are happy to show off the results of their passion, plus a bonus of a few more looking rather sullen or sulky about being in front of the camera – but who still have the goods to display. Enjoy.

I display my own goods below in the hope of catching a few customers – just click on the covers to follow through and support the blog by buying a book or four. Thanks.
