The Spanish crooner Julio Iglesias has never been able to resist bragging about his status as a legendary lover or confessing his & # 39; obsession with sex & # 39 ;.
& # 39; I have many weaknesses & # 39 ;, he said. & # 39; Women of course. I'm not a saint. & # 39;
Along the way he has had at least nine children – the last of them was confirmed this week by a judge in Valencia who decided that Iglesias, now 75, was the father of a 43-year-old man who was born after a protracted week-long affair with a ballerina in 1975.
The twice-married singer, whose hits are also for To All the Girls that I've loved before and who can't help Falling In Love, says he has loved and respected & # 39; since my 15th. This could explain the claim that he slept no less than 3000 – a number he previously both confirmed and denied.
Fame is clearly a great aphrodisiac and Iglesias is far from being the only man in the public eye who admits a staggering number of sexual encounters.
So who is at the top of the ranking list? ALISON BOSHOFF reports. . .
Bedtime: Warren Beatty with lifelike love Goldie Hawn in the movie Shampoo from 1975
WARREN BEATTY, 82,
The Hollywood seducer Warren Beatty once said that he & # 39; with simple arithmetic & # 39; had slept with 12,775 women: & # 39; give or take, a figure that does not include daytime quickies, drive-bys, accidental canyons, stolen kisses and so on & # 39 ;.
One of Beatty's first serious romances was with Joan Collins, 26 with his 22. They were together for two years, engaged, but he wasn't faithful, so she dumped him. & # 39; He and I were actually very compatible, even though he had to have sex several times a day, which I often wore. . . the endless bonking exhausted me, & she later recalled.
Notable conquests include Natalie Wood, Leslie Caron, Diane Keaton, Goldie Hawn, Madonna and Cher, while British actress Julie Christie reportedly broke his heart. Beatty says that after meeting actress Annette Bening he had withdrawn from women's life. They have four children.

RUSSELL BRAND, 44,
Comedian Russell Brand was treated in 2005 for sex addiction in a clinic. He said he had sex with more than 1,000 women and that he had once met nine in one night.
In his first autobiography, My Bookie Wook, he remembered that at the age of 17 he had lost his virginity to a Thai prostitute, while his father had sex in the same hotel room as another. He described a & # 39; harem of about ten women that I would rotate & # 39 ;, and added: & # 39; I just love girls, all different, in a non-optimized, non-evolved way. & # 39; He married pop star Katy Perry (pictured with him) but they divorced after two years. He claims to be a reformed man content with his wife, Laura.
The deceased actor was married six times and slept with most of his fellow stars, including Natalie Wood and Marilyn Monroe, then an unknown teenager.
& # 39; I was running around with a lump in my pants, chasing after all the girls, & # 39; he said. Two years before his death in 2010, he was more reflective: & I have affinity with women. It was love – I fell in love every day. & # 39;

TONY BLACKBURN, 76,
DJ Tony Blackburn was famously destroyed when his actress, Tessa Wyatt (with whom he had a son) left him in 1976 and shared every tear with his Radio 1 listeners. However, he quickly got over it, with a period of glorification that he later claimed to see him sleeping with 500 women. He would sleep with about four women a week, almost all positions of one night.
& # 39; There aren't many, & # 39; he said. & # 39; I was not married. I was free and easy. . . I see nothing wrong. I don't regret it at all. Four different partners every week was my way to dispel the grief. (But) if you train the average, it's not fantastic! The attitude has changed. & # 39;
He married his second wife Debbie in 1992 (they have a daughter) and he has since been & # 39; very loyal & # 39; been.

BILL WYMAN, 82,
The former Rolling Stone took infamous recordings of his sexual encounters in a handwritten ledger, staging 278 direct encounters over a two-year period in his heyday in the rock star. His last count, he says, was around 1,000.
He says he was & # 39; addicted to sex & # 39; and girls would pick up & # 39; & # 39; who were camping outside his hotel when he was married to his first wife Diane Cory (with whom he had a son).
The musician added: & # 39; It was hard to come home to my wife, who clearly knew what was going on. . . sometimes you had three or four a night. & # 39; At the age of 13, he met Mandy Smith, a second wife, and he was 47, claiming they were the first to sleep when she was 14.
He said that their romance & # 39; from the heart & # 39; but that she had been too young. He married model Suzanne Accosta in 1993.

BILL ROACHE, 87,
Ken Barlow is Coronation Street's long-standing lothario, with 28 confirmed notches on his bed post for almost 60 years. In 2012, actor Bill Roache surprised many when he said he was also sexually productive and did not deny when asked that he had slept with around 1,000 women.
He said he deeply regretted cheating on his first wife Anna (whom he had married between 1961-1974) and hurting his children: & # 39; I had rehearsals in Manchester from Monday to Friday. The opportunity was there. There were many girls in the area. . . I had no control over my own sex drive. "He said he changed his way of doing things by the time he met his second wife, Sara, in 1978.

The gambler and spy Casanova, born in Venice in 1725 and once an apprentice priest, left behind 12 bundles of memoirs in which he argued for a life of total sexual freedom and stated that the & # 39; most important activity & # 39; of his life was & # 39; cultivating everything that pleased my senses & # 39; .
And he described in detail his often shocking encounters with women, including the abduction and rape (with seven other men) of a woman during the Venice Carnival in 1745, suggesting that the woman loved the & # 39; experience & # 39 ;. He also slept with his teenage daughter Leonilda and would have had a trio with his daughter (of whom he would have said he had a child) and her mother.
The late Cuban dictator had an insatiable sexual hunger and would have sex with at least two women a day – during lunch and dinner. His guards probably bought women on the beaches of the capital, Havana.
He had at least 11 children from seven different women, starting with Fidelito by his first wife Myrta and then five boys by his partner Dalia.
In 1956 three children were born to three different women. Asked how many children he had, he laughed and said, "Well, I don't have a tribe. Not so much, less than a dozen. & # 39; He died in 2016.

NICK CLEGG, 52,
& # 39; Not more than 30 & # 39;
Former Lib Dem leader and deputy prime minister, Nick Clegg promised to open up British political life & # 39; open and accessible & # 39; to make. In 2008 he delivered an overwhelming style when he told GQ magazine that with & # 39; he did not exceed 30 & # 39; Women had slept and considered themselves a competent enthusiast.
Clegg was widely ridiculed for admission and during the Prime Minister's questions in 2014, Labor Harriet Harman asked how many women he had appointed to the cabinet since the coalition was established.
When he did not answer, she mocked: & # 39; Normally, if he has asked questions about the number of women, he is bold. & # 39;
