Tim Gunn is known as a style guru. He’s most famously associated with Project Runway but last week, Gunn began work on his new gig with ABC. The daytime talk show is titled The Revolution which is all about transforming you, the viewer. The panel of experts also features Ty Pennington, Dr. Tiffanie Davis Henry, Harley Pasternak and Dr. Jennifer Ashton. Much like their other daytime chat-fest, The Chew, the five experts come together and discuss topics and give advice to help their viewers through their life and help them transform themselves through make-overs, health tips etc.
On today’s show, Gunn created quite the buzz when the panel began talking about their sex lives. The topic was brought on by dr. Tiffanie Davis Henry who is a relationship therapist. During the segment, Tim revealed that he hasn’t had sex in 29 years. Okay, you can now all pick your jaws up off of the floor. For the last almost three decades, Tim admits to the panel and the audience that he has been celibate from sex.
He goes on to explain the reasons and logic behind it. In the 80’s, Gunn was in a very intense relationship as he describes it. At the peak of the AIDS crisis, Gunn’s partner decided to break off the relationship citing that he was impatient with his sexual performance. However, he admits that he still has feelings and urges (as any human would) but it doesn’t make him feel like less of a person for it and he’s not a barren forrest. It was great to see Tim open up and explain his situation. He says at the end of the segment that he doesn’t have a mandate that says no sex as he doesn’t know what’s around the corner. All potential suiters, get your game faces ready – it looks like you might have a lot of competition.
