In an interview with The Sunday Times, the actor revealed he completely abstained from sex for months until he met Katy.
Orlando shared that he took the recommendation from his friend, surfer Laird Hamilton: “If you want to be serious about a relationship, go celibate for a few months and figure it out”
Orlando continued: "It takes away the idea of going to a party and thinking, 'Who am I going to meet?' I was suddenly like, 'Oh, I can have a relationship with a woman that is just friends'"
To his surprise, Bloom stayed abstinent for six months: “I was going to do three months, but I was really enjoying the way I was relating to women, and to the feminine within myself”
Orlando said that he "didn't even" masturbate during his six-month period of celibacy. "Completely nothing. It was insane. I don’t think it’s healthy. I don’t think it was advisable. You have to keep it moving down there."
