Tom Ford: All men should try being penetrated
Fashion designer and film producer Tom Ford has claimed that all men need to try being sexually penetrated – for one very good reason.
The ‘A Single Man’ director made the characteristically-outspoken comments in an interview with GQ Magazine, when the interviewer brought up a previous inebriated encounter for the same mag, when Ford had propositioned a reporter.
Ford, who insisted in the previous interview that a heterosexual male reporter should try “being penetrated”, initially tried to walk back his point… before doubling down on his comments instead.
He says: “All men should be f**ked. I think it would help them understand women.
“It’s such a vulnerable position to be in, and it’s such a passive position to be in. And there’s such an invasion, in a way, that even if it’s consensual, it’s just very personal.
“I think there’s a psyche that happens because of it that makes you understand and appreciate what women go through their whole life, because it’s not just sexual, it’s a complete setup of the way the world works, that one sex has the ability to literally – and is expected to and is wanted to – but also there’s an invasion.
“I think that that’s something most men do not understand at all.”
Bill Donohue of the Catholic League launched an attack on the designer’s sexuality.
The anti-gay group’s leader said: “When we learned of this item, I said to the staff that I bet this guy Tom Ford is a homosexual. I was right. He even thinks he’s married.”
Ford is married to long-time partner Richard Buckley. The pair have a son, Alexander.
