Tim Gunn Hasn’t Had Sex in Almost 30 Years

ABC News(NEW YORK) -- Tim Gunn is making it work without sex. The Project Runway fashion guru revealed Tuesday on ABC’s daytime talk show The Revolution that he hasn’t been between the sheets with anyone for 29 years. That’s fine with him.

“I haven’t had sex in 29 years,” he said. “Do I feel like less of a person for it? No. Not even remotely.”

Gunn, 58, said that his “very personal” reasons for abstinence have to do with an “intense” and psychologically damaging past relationship. “My partner ended it, saying that, quite frankly, he was impatient with my sexual performance,” he said.

Gunn, who is openly gay, also said that the AIDS epidemic prompted him to reevaluate sex. “I think a lot of people simply retreated because they were concerned about their health. I certainly was,” he said. “And I’m happy to be healthy and alive, quite frankly.”

While Gunn said that he’s “a perfectly happy, fulfilled individual,” he’s happy to engage in sex again, as long as the person is right. “I have feelings,” he said. “It’s not as though I’m some barren forest. 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.”

Tim Gunn, Ty Pennington: 'The Revolution' Not Trying to Replace ABC Soap

Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images(PASADENA, Calif.) -- The final episode of the long-running ABC soap opera One Life to Live airs this Friday. It will be replaced by the new lifestyle program The Revolution -- a change that has upset many One Life to Live fans.

Two of the hosts of The Revolution, Tim Gunn and Ty Pennington, urge viewers of One Life to Live to give their own show a try when it premieres next week. At the TV critics winter press tour in Pasadena, Calif., on Monday, they both said they're not replacing the daytime soap; they're just offering something different. Pennington said, "You guys know about Extreme Makeover, you know, that show got cancelled too. And that's something that's very, very special to me. But, you know, it's about change. And The Revolution is certainly about change."

Kate Middleton's Wedding Dress: Fashion Expert Tim Gunn Weighs In

ABC/ HAZEL THOMPSON(LONDON) -- "This was a fashion orchestration," said Project Runway style guru Tim Gunn on the wardrobe selections Friday at Prince William and Catherine’s nuptials.

Gunn had nothing but praise for the newly named duchess of Cambridge, and her wedding dress. In describing her look, Gunn kept repeating the word "ravishing." When asked to expand on this, he said, "Simply, she took my breath away."

While Kate's wedding dress has been compared to the one worn by Princess Grace, who married Rainier III, the Prince of Monaco in 1956, Gunn said Kate's "couldn't have been more modern." Whereas Grace's dress had modest lace up to her chin, Kate's look was all opened up, revealing a demure bit of cleavage. It was "stunningly paired with the exuberance of the skirt," said Gunn.

Even though Kate's fashion eye is drawn to minimalism, she knew she had to sustain attention for a four-minute walk down the red-carpeted aisle of Westminster Abbey, which explained her full skirt and elaborate lace bodice.

Her sister, Phillippa "Pippa" Middleton, wore a simple column silhouette that reflected "what people thought Kate would look like," said Gunn. "Had that been on Kate, we would have been disappointed."

Gunn said some fashion experts would no doubt question Kate's dress design. "There will always be detractors at events on this scale."

But the clothing on view at Friday's royal wedding is sure to influence trends across the world, an exciting prospect for anyone interested in cultivating a current wardrobe. "I maintain," Gunn said, wrapping up the day, "it doesn't get any better than this."
