Another ‘Taste of Honey’



Well now. Shortly after I ‘came out’ (13 years ago – gosh!) I had a telephone conversation with a rather elderly maiden aunt back in UK whom I wouldn’t have expected to know about such things. ‘Oh, yes, dear,’ she commented. ‘That’s when you put another man’s penis in your mouth, isn’t it.’ And she said it in such a matter of fact way, I had to laugh out loud. Of course, that’s not what it’s all about – for us it is about love – but one has to admit that the act she so graphically described does (generally) give a great deal of pleasure to both parties, and usually leads to at least an orgasm and maybe something more intimate first.

And maybe, as a reward, a ‘protein shake’. A ‘Taste of Honey’, maybe.

Cover1 ThumbWhat prompts all this rambling thought today is a hilarious e-mail from a mate in London where a musical called ‘Urinetown’ is in rehearsal in the West End theatreland. I didn’t believe this at first, but apparently it was on Broadway here in the US first. It is not, as it happens, a gay musical – it’s about a water shortage apparently, and the closure of all public lavatory facilities (I’m having difficulty keeping a straight face as I type this – it’s a REALLY inviting title, isn’t it?)… but I’ve posted before (I forget when) about some gay guys sharing their ‘golden nectar’ as part of the aforementioned ‘activities’… and also about its alleged medicinal value in preventing ageing of the skin (according to Russian baboushkas who save their own urine for the purpose and give themselves a regular facial).

Cover2 ThumbSo we (embarrassed face) gave it a try, back when, and even made some videos (happily long out of print, so don’t ask) of some gay ‘water sports’. Chad eventually decided to incorporate something of this into his ‘initiation’ ceremony for new guys joining his private gym (more silly ‘boy’ stuff) whereby the candidate and his chosen ‘soul mate’ from the existing membership go through a load of physical challenges together before sharing each other’s golden stuff; and one place where you can get the ‘baboushka therapy’ is that same gym, in the ‘wet’ wrestling pit… and, yeah, I have written about these things in the books…

Cover 3 ThumbWithin our select group of ten guys where we choose to share our love around, when we get together for a sleepover with some of the others we do sometimes start our day with a tonic provided by one of us. Ritual? Tradition? Pointless? Stupid? Yes, probably to all of those. Harmless? – yes. In the midst of all that foolery, we actually sought medical opinion. A gay doctor, admittedly, but a very good one.

If I were to give an opinion on my favourite ‘bodily fluid’ to exchange with our friends, tough, it has to be sweat. Sweat hard-won by intense effort in the gym,  on the weights, by training acrobatics, or wrestling hard to exhaustion. The brighter side of all of this, perhaps: the pheromones of a mate sweating next to my face can sure set the heart racing – and the tongue lapping…

Training outdoors in the sun can be really great…


Occasionally, sweating can be avoided during training if you choose the right circumstances…


…but, generally, a good sweat shows a job well done:


For some reason, I’m the least sweaty person in our group… don’t know why. I just aim to join the ranks of those who look great without rivulets running down their chests! Like these:


I really like this next composition – not to mention the guy!


So there you have it. Tone being weird/stupid/ridiculous/feral/********* (choose any suitable term): not for the first time, and probably not for the last. As a penance (albeit with armpits at the ready), here are a couple more

Bonus Boys

And finally (for today) pheromones at the ready…


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...
