Reality TV star Austin Armacost is known for many things (his impressive bum among them), but being shy about sex isn’t one of them. In a new interview, Austin opens up about sex with his new boyfriend, sex with the old one, and gay men’s constant need for sex.

Austin Armacost is a 29-year-old openly gay UK reality TV star (Celebrity Big Brother – twice!) and a model. He has a rich past of getting naked on social media – he fulfilled our dream of a nude gym, and recently shared a nude, post-sex photo.

Last year, in an interview with The Sun following his breakup from former boyfriend Jake, Austin said he’s “not that into sex”, compared himself to “a nun in bed”, and said he’s asexual. “I am probably in all honesty the least sexual people you will ever meet.”

But now, in a new interview with Gay Star News, and with a new boyfriend – Darren Banks, Austin says he was misunderstood back then.

“When asked, I was referring to the sexual relationship between Jake and I. Sex was limited with us and because we were monogamous. I had all but dried up downstairs.

However, when I met Darren, he unleashed my inner sex beast! I find sex a wonderful and empowering activity. It is also a great way to burn calories.”

Austin also talks about the constant need to look good and search for sex in the gay community.

“In the gay [male] community especially, sex is an everyday part of our interactions, conversations and relationships. There is no coincidence Grindr has a running stigma of being just for sex.

Men have an animistic desire to do it. Therefore the process of selecting or being selected for sex is constant. We are always being judged on our physical shape, as many gay men’s interactions only consist of physical activity.”
