John Pendal

Worthing, United Kingdom

Online kink mentoring and life coaching from professional BDSM educator and former International Mr Leather, John Pendal – either as video calls to individuals and relationship groups, or workshops to larger numbers.

John has 17 years experience teaching BDSM workshops around the world. In 2020 when all his life work was cancelled John started a diploma in transformational life coaching. In November 2020 he also gained a FAA Level 2 Award in First Aid for Mental Health.

Coaching can help you look at any area of your life where you want change: both personal and professional. For example, that may be looking at goals you’d like to set, what resources you have to achieve them, any negative thoughts or beliefs holding you back, how you can become better organised or improve your motivation.

Coaching takes place over video calls, so you can be calling from anywhere in the world. You need to be sitting somewhere quiet and private where you can think and speak without being overheard.

John is a cisgender gay man (pronouns he/ him). In 2003 he became the 25th person to win the annual International Mr Leather contest in Chicago. Since then he has traveled extensively teaching BDSM workshops around the world, including at Beyond Leather in Fort Lauderdale, Down an Dirty in Melbourne, Edgeplay Scotland in Edinburgh, HunCon in Budapest, Inferno, Kinkferansen in Oslo, Leather Camp in Wichita, the London Alternative Market, Lupercalia in Canada, Minnesota Leather Pride, Mr Leatherman Toronto, Palm Springs Leather Pride, Rome BDSM Conference, SINSations in Leather, •SM Bergen in Norway, Spring in the South in Atlanta, Tribal Fire in Oklahoma, and Thunder in the Mountains* in Denver (every year from 2007 to 2017).
