These Four Sets Of Gay Celebrity Friends Have Never Had Sex (Seriously!)

by Graham Gremore April 22, 2016


There are boyfriends.

And then there are boy friends, AKA bros, AKA buds, besties, meaning two guys, sometimes gay, sometime ambiguously straight, who are friends but who don’t have sex with one another.

Contrary to popular belief, not every gay guy has engaged in sexual intercourse with his male friends. Sure, sex is a great pool from which to recruit your social life. You hookup, find it less than satisfying, then discover a mutual love for Judy Garland or, if you are younger, Beyoncé. Things kinda blossom from there.

Plenty of lifelong gay friendships have begun as tawdry one night stands. But sometimes we connect on a deeper level without ever desiring to see each other naked.

Don’t believe us? Scroll down for four sets of celebrity boyfriends who insist they’ve never had sex with one another…

Korey Kuhl and Tyler Oakley

Don’t be fooled by their flirty tweets and silly banter, this pair of Los Angeles YouTube stars are just friends. BFFs to be exact. They’re currently competing together on the 28th season of the Amazing Race for a $1 million cash prize. And with that kind of money on the line, it’s probably best they don’t complicate their relationship any further. They certainly have great chemistry already. (Full disclosure: We are proud to say Korey once worked for Queerty.)

Sam Smith and Adam Lambert


After Lambert posted this picture of Lambert and Smith partying together in NYC, the rumor mill went into overdrive. When asked by Ryan Seacrest if they were a couple, he replied: “No… no… We bumped into each other at a club in New York a couple weeks ago and had few drinks with our friends … He’s really, really cool. He’s actually really down to earth and he’s got a great sense of humor.” Why does everyone have to make assumptions because it’s two gay guys? The vibe does not always have to be sexual.

Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper


The silver foxes have long maintained that there is absolutely no sexual chemistry between them. In a 2015 interview, Cohen explained: “We were set up on a blind date over 20 years ago and it never took. I thought the call went great but he said that he could picture me wildly gesticulating and it turned him off.” But, he added, the two went on to become “great friends. But we’ve never done a thing. We’ve never seen each other naked or anything.”

Russell Tovey and Jonathan Groff

Sure, they may have shot some pretty steamy sex scenes together in HBO’s Looking, but that was the extent of Tovey and Groff’s physical romance. In real life, they’re buds. According to Tovey, they initially bonded over their mutual love of Broadway musicals. “Jonathan is obviously a musical king,” he said, “so between takes, we’d be singing songs from musicals. They’d call cut and we’d break into a tune from Chorus Line. I think he’s absolutely brilliant.”
