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‘ pages (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!)

Good Sports

Wrestling is a ‘good sport’: I’ve added 22 images to WRESTLING GALLERY #1 today.

Here are more guys training for  their ‘sport’.

Looks like he’s training in the bathroom. Why not?

OK, he’s maybe not ‘training’, but never mind!

Maleness – “It’s the Pits!”

What is it about armpits?

They seem to be the source of that essential ‘maleness’ – difficult to explain…

Considering that there are more microbes in one male armpit than there are people on the planet, we gay guys are obviously not alone in appreciating that environment!

The microbes impart a special flavour, which is very individual, but I read that there are two basic types of armpit microbe population and, if you have the wrong one, you are the guy with the seriously ‘whiffy’ pits!

I read recently of a pair of twins, one who was ‘seriously whiffy’ and the other being ‘pleasantly male’. A doctor was able to do a transplant of microbes from the good twin to the bad twin. The microbes fought it out, and the good guys won. Stayed that was for months before the ‘baddies’ re-established their colony.

Pits are the firt place to sweat when working out…

Some guys shave their pits:

…especially those who perform shirtless in public…

…although we never have. OK, enough chatter. Some more pits to admire (or, at least, the muscles surrounding them!). It’s a pose often adopted to show off the abs, of course.

Vacuum stomach as well, there!

And finally, one before the armpit hair has first appeared…

Large Groups

Making up for the gap in postings with pix containing large numbers of guys (minimum: 4)! All in fitness or similar situations, ‘natch. 208 shirtless guys on my count. Enjoy.

The pleasures of working out on the bars together! In your underwear? So what?

This next will turn up later on the Gymnasts Gallery page (worth exploring, obviously): gymnast boys enjoying their environment:

This next is NOT a fitness situation, but these Japanese boys have a great diet and are surely fit!

Moldovan wrestlers marching in…

…maybe the first guy is a teensee bit overweight, but the rest… … … ! I’ll start with the guy in the lighter pants.

And, finally, off to the Chelyabinsk gymnastics centre again! … … …

…and to their day out in the country (excuse the girls, but hey’re pretty dedicaed gymnasts too!)… … …

…AND, they go sailing!

And then, without their coach…

Men at Work

…starting with a young Russian gymnast improving his upper back!

And here’s his friend

OK – more general ones now, doing what they need to do!

…Maybe somewhere less derelict would work better! On the roof?

Raising a sweat is good!


Finally for today, back to Russia and those Chelyabinsk lads enjoying their outdoor gym:
