Tim Gunn Says He Hasn't Had Sex In Nearly 30 Years

'Project Runway' mentor Tim Gunn says he's been celibate for nearly three decades.

In a candid interview on ABC's 'The Revolution', the openly gay 58-year-old revealed he hadn't been intimate with anyone for 29 years, but that was just fine with him.

"I haven't had sex in 29 years," said Gunn. "Do I feel like less of a person for it? No. Not even remotely."

Gunn said the reasons for his abstinence were issues from an old relationship.

"It's very personal," he said. "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."

Gunn said over the years his decision, that began out of insecurity, turned into one about health as the AIDS epidemic was just beginning.

"I think a lot of people simply retreated because they were concerned about their health. I certainly was," he says. "And I'm happy to be healthy and alive, quite frankly."

"I have feelings. It's not as though I'm some barren forest," he explained. "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."

"But I'm a perfectly happy, fulfilled individual."
