Guys can just be Friends


Well, after the last post commenting on those who feel that two guys together means only lust, rather than love, a couple of people have pointed out to me that two guys together “can just be friends”, can’t they? Well, of course they can! I got so taken up with these strange UK wannabe politicians ranting on, that I quite forget to point this out. Kinda obvious, I suppose, and makes no demands or suppositions about their sexuality at all. Just as it should be. Grab the sun tan stuff, dudes…


Glad I can sort that out. Not quite so sure about these two, though…


or these…

I kind of like the ambiguity in that picture. Now do these next guys have to be gay (and in lust or love?) because they are enjoying their nakedness?


Many sporting challenges are between friends…


No love, or lust, implied between those two. Of course, they may not be friends either, but maybe that’s not the point!

Other friends having fun naked – because ‘naked’ just happens to fit the bill, not for any other implied reason:


So let’s drop the subject now. Given that I’m a gay guy, loving an amazing partner, sharing that love around a bit (with suitable precautions) and collectively lusting over attractive-looking boys because it’s natural for gay guys to do that, I may not be the best person to take this any further!

Some would say I’ve taken it far enough here (clickable links to the books):

Loving the Boy: ISBN 978-1-907732-30-0

The Power of Love: ISBN 978-1-907732-41-6

Against All Odds: ISBN 978-1-908645-35-7

So, we’ll just enjoy some more boys who have put in the gym effort we so admire! Nice if we could be friends with all of them!



Hmmm – one there like us who likes to feel the fresh air around his sweating body during his workout…



We like ’em slim, too:

slim 2


…as well as chunky:

over shoulder style



…and, every once in a while, we come across a guy who makes us look at one another and say ‘perfection’…


Now he can be our friend anytime!


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...
