Mar 04, 2019, 04:00 AM

Molly Parkin, 87, is a painter, erotic novelist and a former fashion editor who epitomises bohemian London. She discusses her illuminating sex life, her Soho wild days and how to get off in your eighties.

The inspiration for this series, Molly Parkin is a painter, erotic novelist and a former fashion editor who was once just as famous for her bedroom liaisons with the movers and shakers of London. She is never without a bejewelled turban on her head or a saucy anecdote at hand. Now 87, she lives on the iconic World’s End estate in Chelsea, in a kaleidoscopic apartment filled with her art and clothing.

In this candid – and fairly explicit! – episode The Last Bohemians meets her at home, where she discusses her illuminating sex life, her wild days at The Colony Club with artist Francis Bacon, her penchant for erotic writing and how to get off in your eighties.
