Esteemed Project Runway mentor Tim Gunn is always sharing his best style secrets, but what many may not know about him is that he’s been celibate. Yesterday on the new talk show, The Revolution, he spontaneously opened up about his sex life, or lack thereof. “I haven’t had sex in 29 years,” he said. So why has Tim Gunn sworn off sex? Read on for the back story that caused him to shed a few tears on daytime television.

Yesterday, Tim Gunn revealed on The Revolution that he’s been celibate for the past 29 years. “Do I feel like less of a person because of it?,” he asked himself. “No.”

He also elaborated that a past “intense” relationship was the cause of his celibacy. “I’m a perfectly fulfilled person,” he said, “but it’s very physiological.”

Tim Gunn explained that an ex-partner ended the relationship abruptly, which caused him to give up sex. “He was impatient with my sexual performance,” Gunn said while holding back tears.

However, he isn’t necessarily sad about though, despite his emotional explanation.

“I’m happy to be healthy and alive, frankly,” he said about his celibacy.

Can you believe that Tim Gunn’s past relationship sparked such a celibacy? What do you think of his big reveal on The Revolution?
