LONDON: A British woman was so
fascinated with her favourite TV show 'Sex And The City' star Samantha that she
ended up following into her footsteps.
Inspired by man-eater Samantha, Christina Saunders went on to seduce 1000 men.
"Sam went from one man to the next and was proud of it. I wanted to be confident like her. I got hooked on the buzz of one-night-stands," News Of The World quoted her as saying.
The university-educated brunette longed to be as confident in bed as Samantha, so she set herself a 10-year challenge--to get a thousand notches on her bedpost.
She slept with at least one stranger a week, travelled the world hunting for men to bed, and took part in threesomes.
Saunders decided to copy Sam, played by Kim Cattrall, 53, during a bout of flu at university in Bristol.
"The thought of four women gloating about sleeping their way around New York hadn't appealed to me but I had nothing better to do so I watched it," she said.
"Samantha was sexy, confident and proud. She had a male attitude of sleeping around and it fascinated me," she added.
Last month she bedded her Mr 1,000th at a friend's party. Now, that the challenge is over Saunders does have regrets.
"Good friends stuck by me but others accused me of being a slut. I took things too far. Now all I want to do is settle down. I just hope I haven't put men off."
