Bobby KENDALL / PINK NARCISSUS

Wikipedia tells us that Pink Narcissus is a 1971 American arthouse drama film visualising the erotic fantasies of a gay male prostitute. Between visits from his keeper and clients, he fantasises about worlds where he is the central character - a matador, a Roman slave and the emperor who condemns him and the keeper of a male harem. Kendall (the prostitute) is believed to be a pseudonym.
