Jaymee’s Big Challenge

It is usually my boy Leo and his confederate Chris that make the waves at Junior High School here: usually with their enthusiastic, shirtless and frankly brutalist approach to physical education! To the dismay of their classmates, most of the time, since half of them appear to live on burgers and fries and spend their waking lives watching screens.

But now, it’s Jaymee’s turn. In the girls’ Phys Ed classes, she gets used regularly as a demonstrator – considering that she’s trained as an acrobat (with us), attends artistic gymnastic classes regularly, and inherited lanky but sports-mad power-genes from Dave and from her mum Karen, this is hardly surprising.

Two of Jaymee’s best friends in class are of the ‘Burger King’ variety – their families appear to eat little else. But the girls have asked Jaymee to help them get fit – which kind of gets us involved too, at least at the start, because someone needs to talk with the parents! And we are, kind of, qualified – not in slimming exactly, but in fitness at least!

Girls are strong

And let’s be clear – we may be a group of gay guys here but we have no issues with fit girls joining the team!

And, sweaty from training, she had her ‘top’ off when she did it too, which alarmed Dave and I in no small measure at the time… but we moved on!Cover 3 Thumb

So, we wish Jaymee (and her friends) well – I think (with our considerable help) that she will be a good teacher. A pity that she’ll be absent for three weeks over Christmas in Wales with us – since that’s the ‘eating season’…

And now, for my regular gay guy readers, let’s redress the balance with some fit young men:


Now that’s more ‘our’ scene – guys working with (and on) other guys!

Who needs a bar to work out on when you can find two other guys on the street?


Of course, twelve more guys to encourage you is even better:


But your best mate should always come first…


…especially when it’s time to relax!


Good luck, Jaymee!

About tonycavanagh

Born Northampton UK; school Oxford UK and Oak Ridge Tennessee, where I met my wonderful partner Dave, also from UK. Oak Ridge is our main training base for acrobatics and circus stuff, but we also established a base in Wales (UK) to serve us when we are working in Europe. Our 'story', of finding gay love, learning the acrobatics trade and then of how we got shot at during our show (and worse was to follow - just to prove that the risks of being an acrobat are not always the most obvious ones!) are now available in my three books 'Loving the Boy', 'The Power of Love' and 'Against All Odds'. Links available on most blog posts. Actually, waiting for the imminent arrival of the first printed copies was far scarier than anything we do in performance. A fourth book - not about us but exploring the sadness of a gay Native American boy denied his true identity - is currently with an agent for evaluation. watch for 'Let The Future Find Me' in due time. And now to book five... another boy, another quest... seems its always boys...
