Tim Gunn admits he hasn't had sex in 29 years

Ever wonder how Tim Gunn manages to maintain his refined and sophisticated manners? Well, not having sex for 29 years must have something to do with it.

Gunn, 58, said as much on the talk show The Revolution on Tuesday, revealing the delicate matter in a very candid way. "I haven't had sex in 29 years. Do I feel like less of a person for it? No. Not even remotely," he said. In case you didn't think that was enough sharing, he went on: "It's very personal. I was in a very intense relationship for a long time. And my partner ended it, saying that, quite frankly, he was impatient with my sexual performance." My, that is personal. He also noted that was about the time the AIDS epidemic was really becoming apparent.

Don't think Tim's a cold fish, though, because he'd like to have a tryst with a future boyfriend if the opportunity, ahem, arose. "I have feelings. It's not as though I'm some barren forest," the Project Runway star said. "I don't want to imply to anyone that I have a mandate that says no sex. I don't. I don't know what's around the corner."Time to start scouring the personals, folks, because Tim's on the market.
