Confessions from the David Galaxy Affair (UK re-release title: Star Sex) is a 1979 British sexploitation comedy film directed by Willy Roe and starring Alan Lake, Glynn Edwards, Mary Millington, Bernie Winters, Diana Dors and Antony Booth. A playboy astrologer has to prove an alibi to police for a robbery five years before. Dors performed the film's theme song over the opening titles.
The film was financed by businessman David Sullivan to promote the career of Millington, who was his girlfriend at the time. It was not part of the Confessions series of films from Columbia Pictures that began in 1974 with Confessions of a Window Cleaner, but it was hoped that it would benefit commercially from the similarity of title.
Alan Lake's wife Diana Dors has a small role while Millington only appears in an extended cameo. The film was Sullivan's first box-office flop, being released at a period when soft porn theatrical films were losing their popularity in Britain.
