Rainbow Alliance Payne and Pleasure Party
Born in Bognor on Christmas Eve 1932. She first hit the
headlines in 1978 when the police raided her home in suburban Streatham to find a sex party in full swing.
When the case came to court in 1980, she was sent to
prison for 18 months, reduced to six months on
appeal, for running a brothel. She
continued to give an occasional swinging party, and in 1986 was raided again. The resulting court case in January 1987 stole the headlines and kept the
nation amused for three weeks before she was found
not guilty on 10 charges of controlling prostitutes.
