‘Rhythmical Shoes’ and Other Comments…


The vast majority of comments arriving on this blog are spam, and get dumped. Interestingly, most of them seem to arriving through sites promoting sportswear and sports shoes, or designer bags. I have no idea why – perhaps someone out there can tell us!

All other comments are much appreciated, whether they arrive directly as comments or via gymacrobat@gmail.com

A number of these are for more information about a particular picture, such as the guy’s name (which I most often don’t know anyway): others are more interesting. Today I am picking out two good examples, the first of which made my day – a request for a post dedicated to ‘Rhythmical shoes’ from Lorenzo in Italy. I interpreted this, apparently correctly, as a taste for boys in ballet shoes. Actually, I don’t have any of those lined up anyway, and the boy above is, for the moment, the best that I can do. But I shall keep your interest in mind, Lorenzo, as I wander about the net. And if you find some you like, send them to me!

Ryan asked for more information about a specific guy – a beefy wrestler in green shorts doing a heavy workout. This is a set I found on ‘Younglifter.com’ and the post disappeared by now (they keep only eight active pages open), but I do have one more for you, and here he is:


Maybe we should send him some money for fresh socks. Me, I’d go barefoot.

So, this is a gentle reminder that I really do appreciate to know your likes and dislikes here. I’m not going to stop pushing a certain set of books – this blog’s Raison d’Etre

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

– but I can tailor the pictures to your preferences a bit, although they are inevitably also going to reflect mine… acrobatics, gymnasts and gym bunnies (either at work in the gym or showing off their results for us), plus that frisson of gay love.

So there we go: apologies for the French insertions there, and let’s enjoy some more boys!





Pictures of wet boys have that special ‘something’…




Actually, a request from me for information. Called us naïve if you want, but the exact meanings of some of those gay (?) hand signs elude us… does anyone know of a good reference site where we can up to speed with what the younger guys are saying to us in their Instagrams? Us thirty-somethings are really struggling with some of the codes! Our gay generation grew up with ‘hanky codes’, but they are seriously ‘old news’!



Is this next one photoshopped, or just an interesting lens/angle with his shoulders thrust forward?


Let’s hope it was the latter, because he looks the sort of guy who doesn’t need photoshopping! Like this:



balcony boi

…and, with that excellent balcony scene (with just Romeo and happily no Juliet!), I’ll stop for today. Enjoy.

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...
