A former male escort says he’s now straight after a year of celibacy.

According to The Mirror, Dominic Hilton resolved to take a year off from having sex after breaking up with his last boyfriend on Christmas Day 2017.

Now, after 365 sex-free days, Hilton plans to begin dating again, but he says he feels no attraction to men and he’s looking to date women.

The mental health worker, who came out as gay at the age of 14, told The Mirror, “Sex is always something I enjoyed, but this past year, that sexual attraction to men has just gone.”

“I’d been wondering if perhaps I was bisexual, and attracted to both men and women, but now, I just don’t find men attractive anymore,” he says. “I have no intention of sleeping with a man again.”

“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,” he adds.

Hilton is getting some media attention lately having appeared on the UK dating show, Naked Attraction, where contestants meet potential dating partners for the first time naked.

Hilton is open about the fact that when he was 18-years-old he worked as a male escort for a couple of years. But he gave that up to become a ‘serial monogamist.’

He estimates he has had between 100 and 150 male sex partners, but now wants to settle down with a woman – although he’s never had sex with some of the female persuasion.

“I’ve had sex with men, but not women, so I want to find an open-minded girl I can lose my virginity to,” says 27-year-old.

That said, Hilton admits being honest about his gay past with prospective females on dating apps can “shut down a conversation.”

He says many women stopping communicating with him once he shares the news. “I told one girl, and she ended up blocking me an hour before we were due to meet which was hurtful.”

Hilton says he understands some people don’t understand his new heterosexuality, but says this isn’t a phase.

“I have no doubt that I am straight,” he declares.

And he definitely recommends celibacy to folks who might be feeling “a little lost in life.”

“Even if you don’t go a whole year, just take some time and focus on yourself – you may be surprised at what you learn.”

Matt Baume On The Raid Of

Matt Baume looks at the recent raid and shutting down of

It’s a good day for Craigslist! The Department of Homeland Security just raided, putting an end to one of the best ways for escorts and clients to find each other online.

And good for DHS! Because prostitution is bad, right? Well, not so fast. If sex work is so harmful, why is it that so many major medical and human rights groups actually support decriminalization?

Personally, since everyone knew about Rentboy for over a decade, I wonder why shut the site down now?

Guess what is the #1 concern of male escorts today

If you were to take a guess at the top concerns of male escorts, you might think “worrying about HIV” or “friends finding out you’re an escort.”

But it turns out the TOP issue male escorts care about is getting and keeping the “right” clients, and marketing themselves.

From Queerty:

A new study by the Center for HIV Educational Studies and Training has unearthed the top 13 career concerns for male escorts, and the results have some researchers very surprised.

The study, conducted in 2013, surveyed 418 men from, one of the largest websites for male escorts in the world. Going into it, researchers assumed HIV/AIDS prevention would rank at #1. It turns out, they were wrong. The top concern for the male escorts surveyed was branding. More specifically, how to brand themselves effectively in today’s competitive marketplace, and how to attract the right clients.

“A lot of current research on male escorts has focused on HIV risk and looked at ways to help men stop being escorts,” Dr. Christian Grov, one of the study’s authors, says in a statement. “The assumption has always been that, because male escorts exchange sex for money, they are in dire need of safer sex training.”

She continues: “Instead, we found that over 70% reported using a condom with their last client and that services such as ‘Attracting the right client and keeping them,’ or learning how to navigate the legality of escorting, outranked being trained in how to negotiate safer sex with clients.”

HIV/AIDS prevention didn’t even crack the list’s top 10. It came in a #12.
