Project Runway's Tim Gunn recently revealed that he has been celibate for the last 29 years, following a difficult breakup with a former partner.
The 58-year-old TV personality spoke about his celibacy on Tuesday night's episode of his new show "The Revolution."
"I haven't had sex in 29 years," a candid Gunn revealed on his show.
Gunn, who acts as a competition mentor on Heidi Klum's Project Runway show, explained that his former partner was "impatient with my sexual performance."
"Do I feel like less of a person because of it? No ... I'm a perfectly fulfilled person … but it's very physiological," Gun added.
He also expressed no regrets about his decision to refrain from sex insisting, "I'm happy to be healthy and alive, frankly." Gunn pointed out that he believes that life is not about sexual intercourse, and that he is interested in other aspects of it.
Known for frequently using the catchphrase "make it work," Gunn explained that he was left scarred after his relationship came to a sudden end, describing the experience as "intense."
"The Revolution" is a new daily talk show on ABC which provides "life changing tips and essential tools to motivate viewers and serve as a catalyst for change," according to the show's website.
Gunn, who appeared to be emotional as he recalled his relationship woes, has worked as a Project Runway mentor since 2004.
He has also appeared a string of other shows including "Ugly Betty," "Drop Dead Diva," "How I Met Your Mother" and "Gossip Girl."
Gunn's growing popularity among Project Runway viewers helped him land him very own Bravo TV spin-off show, "Tim Gunn's Guide to Style."
Gunn also then wrote a book "A Guide to Quality, Taste and Style," which received favorable reviews.
It is unclear whether Gunn has any plans to end his celibacy.
