    Holy Celibacy! Tim Gunn Hasn't Had Sex in How Long?

    Fashion guru Tim Gunn certainly knows how to make it work—except, it seems, when it comes to the horizontal mambo.

    The Project Runway mentor revealed yesterday on The Revolution, the lifestyle show he cohosts, that he hasn't gotten some action in quite a while, adding that an ­"intense" but unsuccessful long-term relationship played a hand in it.

    So exactly how long has this dry spell been?

    "I haven't had sex in 29 years," Gunn said on the show, as his cohosts looked on in bewilderment.

    "Do I feel like less of a person for it? No!" he continued. "I'm a perfectly happy, fulfilled individual, and I have feelings. I mean, it's not as though I'm some barren forest."

    Why the prolonged sexual sabbatical? Sounds like Gunn has never gotten over a devastating heartbreak.

    "I was in a very intense relationship for a long time," he explained, "and my partner ended it, saying that, quite frankly, he was impatient with my sexual performance."

    But the openly gay 58-year-old is keeping an open mind about things: "I don't want to imply to anyone that I have a mandate that says, 'No sex.' I don't. I don't know what's around the corner."

    Maybe Hollywood could be around the corner! Gunn appeared in The Smurfs movie last year, and he's logged guest stints on shows like Gossip Girl. Throw in his regular gig on The Revolution and it sounds like Gunn's got a lot to keep him busy. Who needs sex?!
