Orlando Bloom Was Celibate For Six Months Before Dating Katy Perry

After the recent announcement of her pregnancy, Katy Perry's fella Orlando Bloom has revealed that he went celibate for six months before meeting her.

The British actor said he 'didn't even masturbate' for the half a year before he started seeing Katy, 35, after they met at a Golden Globes after-party in 2016.

Orlando, 43, opened up in an interview with Sunday Times, where he admitted that in the period before meeting Katy, he had felt unhappy in general, when a friend suggested that he should try celibacy.

Bloom recalled his friend said: "If you want to be serious about a relationship, go celibate for a few months and figure it out."

He said that he believed it helped him to relate to women in a different way, saying he saw a different side to himself.

The Pirates of the Caribbean actor said: "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'."

He admitted that it lasted longed than he first anticipated, having initially planned to stay celibate for three months, he added: "I was really enjoying the way I was relating to women, and to the feminine within myself. I know that sounds crazy."

He also gave his opinion on porn, saying it's 'super disruptive' to your sex life and libido, revealing that he 'didn't even' masturbate during the period of time.

"Completely nothing. It was insane," he continued.

"I don't think it's healthy. I don't think it was advisable. You have to keep it moving down there."

Katy Perry announced that she's pregnant with a video earlier this month.

In the 'Never Worn White' video, the singer can be seen holding her belly at the end - obviously the international sign for revealing a pregnancy.

After the video dropped on YouTube, Perry said it's the 'probably the longest secret' she's ever had to keep.

She added: "There's a lot that will be happening this summer, not only will I be giving birth - literally - but also figuratively to something you guys have been waiting for.

"We're excited and happy."
