Peter Stringfellow: Some of his most memorable quotes
The club owner died from cancer aged 77.
Nightclub mogul Peter Stringfellow had plenty to say on Brexit, women and of course sex.
Here are some of his memorable quotes from over the years.
On his celebrity clientele: “My favourite guest was Stephen Hawking. I was so excited when he came in and I wanted to talk to him about the universe. But when I asked him what he wanted he just said, ‘Girls’.” (The Evening Standard from Stringfellow’s conversation at The London Chat Show, 2011)
On claims that he had slept with 2,000 women: “I’ve been around a long time, man. Just by the sheer weight of years you’re going to have a bunch of girls in your background.” (The Guardian, 2000)
On Europe: “These people are young entrepreneurs themselves and they’re going forward. They come from all around Europe. This is one of the reasons of course I’m a Remainer. … I like those European people to come and earn money in my club. The English are more than welcome too.”(Talking to Mary Beard on a ‘first date’ set up by the Victoria Derbyshire programme)
Quipping about being a great catch for women: “I am wonderful, with a perfect physique, very charming, rich and look like Jude Law.” (Metro, 2009)
His thoughts on what men find attractive and how women have changed over the years: “Men don’t want to see ribs, they don’t find that attractive. They used to have real breasts, now some don’t.” (Mail On Sunday, 2015)
On sex: “The majority of people who say they are having the best sex in the world are usually lying and some nights that goes for me.”
