Dan's toasts were sexually explicit and very funny, for instance "Gross Indecency" and "Sodomy". All three men are very different characters; Guy is socially awkward but anxious to please and his knitting is a running joke; John looks beautiful and seems caught up in his own thoughts and Daniel, in a flying visit, is personality plus with loads of sexual double entendre.
He is taken in by an American, Fat Sandy who "lived for cottaging and took me under his bingo wing." Later he lives with twins, Jason and Jacob until Jack finds the hedonistic lifestyle they lead of promiscuous sex with innumerable partners, disruptive and intrusive. All the gay bars, pubs and restaurants of old Soho are recalled like a travelogue.
