Read on for the back story that caused him to shed a few tears on daytime television.
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.

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