Samantha Fox sexual fantasy
Samantha Karen Fox (born 15 April 1966) is an English singer, songwriter, actress and former glamour model. In 1983, at age 16, she began appearing as a topless model on Page 3 of British tabloid newspaper The Sun, and continued as a Page 3 girl until 1986. During this time, she became the most popular pin-up girl of her era, as well as one of the most photographed British women of the 1980s.
In 1986, she launched her pop music career with her debut single “Touch Me (I Want Your Body)”, which peaked at number-one in 17 countries. In 1988, Fox received a Brit Award nomination for Best British Female Artist. She has also appeared in a number of films and reality television shows, and has occasionally worked as a television presenter.

Fox’s father Patrick, a former carpenter, managed her career until 1991, when she hired accountants to trace over £1 million (£1.9 million today) that she believed he had been embezzled from her accounts. She sued her father, who by then had divorced and remarried, and in May 1995, she was awarded a £363,000 (£0.6 million today) court settlement. Patrick Fox died in 2000, at which time they had not spoken for almost a decade.
In 1994, it was reported that Fox had become a born again Christian; that year she played at the Christian arts festival Greenbelt.
In the late 1980s, Fox became romantically linked with Australian career criminal Peter Foster. They began dating, but she turned down his marriage proposal. She also had a relationship with Paul Stanley, rhythm guitarist and singer of the rock band Kiss. Rumours regarding Fox’s sexual orientation began to surface in 1999 when she judged a lesbian beauty pageant, and rumours circulated that the woman with whom she resided, Cris Bonacci, the Australian former lead guitarist for the rock band Girlschool, was her lover.
Though the two women did live in the same residence together, neither stated publicly that they were lovers. The relationship was confirmed later by Bonacci in an interview. Prior to Bonacci, Fox shared her home with Debbie Connor, but again she herself never stated that they were romantically linked, only that they were “best mates”.
In 2003, Fox made a statement about her personal life: “I have slept with other women but I’ve not been in love before Myra Stratton. People say I’m gay…. I don’t know what I am. All I know is that I’m in love with Myra [Stratton, my manager]. I love her completely and want to spend the rest of my life with her.” Fox said that she had been reluctant to come out because, having already dealt with obsessed fans and stalkers, she feared fans’ possible reactions. In 2009, she announced her plans to form a civil partnership with Stratton.
In 2015, Fox’s long-term partner, Stratton, died following a two-year battle with cancer. She was 60 years old. Fox announced the news via Twitter and Facebook: “It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Myra Stratton. She was Samantha Fox’s partner and manager for the past 16 years.”
