Is Tracey Emin the new Paul Raymond?

  • Comment
Let's consider the evidence shall we?

Raymond, who died on Sunday (selected obituaries from the Guardian , the Telegraph , and Management Today ) made much of his £650 million fortune by astutely marketing female sexuality (or by peddling smut, if you prefer).

In his heyday, he promoted shows such as 'Yes, We Have No Pyjamas' at his Revuebar in Soho and also flogged an extensive portfolio of girlie mags, including Men Only and Razzle.

However, the Financial Times claims Raymond owed a large part of his wealth to his ownership of much of Soho. The paper reports that he owned parts of Old Compton Street, as well as Romilly, Archer and Greek Streets, and had properties in Notting Hill, Hampstead and Chelsea.

Emin, on the other hand, has made much of her considerable fortune by astutely marketing female sexuality (or peddling smut, if you prefer).
