Tim Gunn has talked about his sex life—or lack thereof—before. But in January 2012, on the ABC talk show The Revolution, the Project Runway icon didn’t mince words. "I haven't had sex in 29 years,” Gunn said. “Do I feel like less of a person for it? No. Not even remotely." The audience applauded. Gunn explained that his three-decade bout of celibacy began after a difficult breakup, when his former partner dumped him over his “sexual performance.” Gunn has described himself as asexual, but he indicated that label might be misleading. "I have feelings. It's not as though I'm some barren forest," he says. "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." He described his “last chance” at love in a 2011 essay for Newsweek.
