Tim Gunn has made no secret of the fact that he’s a gay man living a celibate lifestyle. It’s one thing to hear the phrase “celibate lifestyle” and brush it off, but it’s entirely another to hear the man admit to ABC‘s The Revolution that he hasn’t had sex in 29 years.
Yep, 29 years.
He said that the celibacy was brought about by a previous relationship that, in conjunction with the rising threat of AIDS in the gay community, just sorta turned him off of sex for the next thirty years or so.
Perhaps if we took our filthy minds off of sex for a scant thirty years, we would be able to write that novel we kept putting off, start that artisanal granola company that we’ve always dreamed of, or maybe even get popular catch phrase like “Make it work.”
My catch phrase would be “GIMME A HANDJOB!”
