Lindsay Lohan might be considered decadent with her coke pants and vodka water, but she and her ilk are only a spit in the ocean compared to the late best-selling author Harold Robbins, of The Carpetbaggers fame. During the ’60s and ’70s, his Fucking Room Only parties for the “beautiful, handsome, well-endowed, or famous” at his Beverly Hills house were full-blown orgies with “copious amounts” of marijuana, Quaaludes, and cocaine, usually ending in “a mass of writhing bodies.” One party featured a sex therapist showing the female guests how to “engage in oral sex in the manner of Linda Lovelace,” says Hustler‘s Larry Flynt in Andrew Wilson’s Robbins bio, The Man Who Invented Sex. “We used to all get naked and lay in a pile.” Sounds flaccid.

Speaking of Linda Lovelace, Inside Deep Throat, World of Wonder’s (ahem) in-depth documentary on the making of and furor surrounding the 1972 porn classic Deep Throat, will be making its TV debut next Friday, September 6 at 11PM on HBO.
