Fashion guru Tim Gunn made a shocking revelation about his sex life. The "Project Runway" star said on ABC's talk show "The Revolution" that he has gone celibate for 29 years but he has no problem with it, saying he's "a perfectly happy, fulfilled individual."

"I haven't had sex in 29 years. Do I feel like less of a person for it? No. Not even remotely," said Gunn. Applauded by the audience, the 58-year-old did not stop there. His reason was mostly psychological. "It's very personal," he said. "I was in a very intense relationship for a long time. And my partner ended it, saying that, quite frankly, he was impatient with my sexual performance."
