I think of all the hundreds of "celebrites" born out of reality television, Tim might be my favorite....easily, in fact.

I'm unclear, and perhaps it's TMI, about his partner's "impatience with his sexual performance" as Tim says in the clip, but I understand the AIDS part of his answer.

I thought the same thing as one of his cohosts: "I would think you have a line of suitors outside your door." (He probably does.)

At any rate, good for him. Maybe that's why he seems so secure and happy??:confused::eek::lol::slinkaway

This isn't actually new information as he wrote about it without putting an exact timeline on it in his last book. The media just failed to notice.

In the book, he's pretty clear about not missing that kind of relationship in or out of the bedroom. He has a very full and happy life without it. That is completely possible for some people.

I imagine the partner was "impatient with his sexual performance" because Gunn was probably rarely or never interested in sex while together. Maybe Gunn has always leaned towards being non sexual.

He says in the book that he considers himself asexual.

Tim's life story will never end.
It is, after all, without climax. :slinkaway

According to Wikipedia, Tim Gunn was born on July 29, 1953 which would make him 58 years old. So he would have been 29 years old, the last time he had sex. That's awfully young for a healthy, able-bodied adult to give up on sex, imo. OTOH, I suspect that celibacy (both voluntary and involuntary) are more common in the U.S. than most people would assume.

Does it make him any less awesome? I think not. The only only important fact about Tim Gunn is that he embodies awesome.

Asexuality is a real thing. Some people are genuinely not interested in sex. And I think that's okay.

I go back and forth on this. OTOH, being asexual won't negatively impact your health or finances the way substance abuse issues or a gambling problem would. OTOH, being asexual probably means you're not going to have a romantic partner since never having sex would probably be a deal breaker for most people. I don't think people have to be paired off in order to be happy but I also think a good love relationship adds much to a person's life.
