It’s always the quiet ones, isn’t it? Raised a conservative Baptist, becoming an International Sex Ambassador for a year didn’t exactly top John Pendal’s list of career choices when he was growing up. In this show, he shares his story of learning about his sexuality, and about the kinky underworld he now likes to inhabit. In case you’re easily shocked, he’s got pictures of his cats to soften the blow, but I think he could have risked being a bit more filthy in his jokes; although I’m perhaps less easily shocked than others. It’s certainly an interesting insight into how a softly-spoken man from Watford became the winner of the US based International Mr. Leather competition.

The Stand 4, until 28 Aug.
