'Anything sexual terrified me': Paris Hilton says traumatizing experiences made her believe she was asexual

Warning: This article contains mentions of sexual abuse.

American media personality and businesswoman Paris Hilton revealed that she thought she was asexual before she met her now-husband, Carter Reum.

Hilton said that due to the traumatic sexual experiences she had in her 20s, she began to think of herself "privately" as asexual. "I was known as a sex symbol, but anything sexual terrified me," she confessed in an interview with Harper's Bazaar.

"I called myself the 'kissing bandit,' because I only liked to make out. A lot of my relationships didn't work out because of that," she added.

Hilton stated that her previous awful sexual experiences contributed to her fear.

She previously spoke about the abuse she experienced as a child in her 2020 documentary, This Is Paris, claiming that it had taken place at boarding schools that promised to reform disturbed teenagers, reported Fox News.

Hilton, in her upcoming book, Paris: The Memoir, has also written about being groomed by a male teacher when she was in middle school, according to Harper's Bazaar. She also had to deal with a sex tape of herself being released against her will in 2004.

However, things changed for Hilton when she met her husband Reum. "It wasn't until Carter that I finally am not that way. I enjoy hooking up with my husband," the 42-year-old said with a laugh.

The couple tied the knot in November 2021 at her grandfather's estate in Bel Air. They recently welcomed their first baby via surrogate in January. (ANI)
