Back in 2004, when interviewed by a straight man for GQ, Tom Ford flirtatiously stated “Every man should be fucked at some point in his life. You shouldn’t force yourself to do it. But it’s really not that different than having a massage.” He added, “Everyone should try it. It doesn’t feel that much different. It’s skin.”

For a new interview with the publication, his provocative comments have been revisited. Though he admits he was drunk at the time, he stands by what he said. He elaborated upon his initial comment.

“I think it would help them understand women,” he argues. “It’s such a vulnerable position to be in, and it’s such a passive position to be in. And there’s such an invasion, in a way, that even if it’s consensual, it’s just very personal. And I think there’s a psyche that happens because of it that makes you understand and appreciate what women go through their whole life, because it’s not just sexual, it’s a complete setup of the way the world works, that one sex has the ability to literally—and is expected to and is wanted to—but also there’s an invasion. And I think that that’s something most men do not understand at all.”

What do you think of Ford’s comment? Do you agree or disagree?
