Paris Hilton is opening up about her journey with sexuality. In a recent interview with Harper's Bazaar, the pop culture icon revealed that she privately thought of herself as asexual in her early 20s. Here's what she said: “I was known as a sex symbol, but anything sexual terrified me... 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.”

In her upcoming deeply personal memoir, Paris: The Memoir, the star will be opening up about several 'awful' sexual experiences including her sex tape being released against her will in 2004 and being groomed by a male teacher in middle school. In her interview, Paris went on to say that meeting her husband, Carter Reum, changed her view on her sexuality. “It wasn’t until Carter that I finally am not that way,” she said. “I enjoy hooking up with my husband.”

The happy couple tied the knot in November 2021 and welcomed their first child via surrogate earlier this year. “I just feel like after all the hell I’ve been through, I’m finally getting what I deserve, which is someone I can trust and someone to build a real life with,” Hilton said of her life now. Her life goals have also shifted since being a mother. "I’m more interested in babies than billions." However, she still has big plans including new music.

After releasing a new version of her hit "Stars Are Blind (Paris' Version)" in December, a press release promised, "Looks like Y2K is here to stay and Paris Hilton is making music a key part of her 2023 plan."

Paris: The Memoir hits shelves on March 14th.
