Dominic Hilton began working as a gay escort when he was 18. He has now given up the profession and has become a “serial monogamist.” After his break up with his last boyfriend in 2017, he made the decision to go celibate and didn’t have sex at all in 2018.
He says he is a heterosexual now!
“Sex is always something I enjoyed,” he tells The Mirror. “But this past year, that sexual attraction to men has just gone.”
Hilton came out at the age of 14 and has never been with a woman. He realized a change in October of last year while on a trip to Alicante, Spain with a gay male friend.
“I’d usually be chatting about guys we could see and if I thought they were attractive,” Hilton recalls. “I just couldn’t join in.”
He adds: “Then my friend turned to me and said, ‘You really are straight, aren’t you?’”
Hilton did think he might be bisexual; however, he noticed the attraction to men was just gone.
“I just don’t find men attractive anymore,” he says. “I have no intention of sleeping with a man again.”
He adds: “It was a gradual thing, not like someone flicked a switch and I was straight.”
This placed him in a strange position. He would have to come out to his family and friends all over again, except this time he would be telling them he is straight. “A lot of my friends found it funny,” he recalls. “Telling everyone I was straight was like coming out all over again, but my loved ones were supportive and just want me to be happy.”
Hilton estimated he’s had between 100 and 150 male sexual partners, so he is now looking for an “open-minded girl” who he can give himself to.
“I’ve had sex with men, but not women, so want to find an open-minded girl I can lose my virginity to,” he says.
Finding a female partner, however, has been a struggle. Many women cut off communication as soon as he tells them he once identified as gay. One woman went so far as to block him an hour before they were supposed to meet.
“It can really shut down a conversation,” he says. “Though nobody has said anything outrightly rude, they just stop talking, which I almost hate more as it leaves you feeling dismissed and ignored.”
“A lot of people don’t understand it,” Hilton laments, “and think that I am gay but this is a phase. I have no doubt that I am straight though.”
He continues, “I never imagined celibacy would change my life as much as it has. If you’d have asked me in the past if a person can change their sexuality, I’d have said no–but I’m living proof that you can.”
