Megan Barton Hanson calls on women to put their orgasms before their man’s, as she blasts people for ‘sl*t-shaming’ her

MEGAN Barton Hanson has called on women to put their orgasms before their bloke's - as she blasts society for "sl*t-shaming" her.

The 26-year-old, who shot to fame on Love Island in 2018, spoke to Fabulous for National Orgasm Day - after Ann Summers research revealed 70 per cent of women have faked it in the past.

In an exclusive interview, she said: "I think it’s so sad that so many women are faking orgasms. It’s a part of your body that’s purely there for pleasure.

"I think women are scared to own the fact they like sex, and that they deserve to have pleasure during sex.

"As women there’s this focus on pleasuring the man first and it needs to be a team thing to enjoy sex. It’s not just for the man, we’ve got to put ourselves first."

Ann Summers previously revealed the average woman misses out on 1,734 orgasms in her lifetime, compared to men, and the brand has pledged to close this 'orgasm gap'.

Unlike the majority, Megan says she's never faked an orgasm - admitting she is "too stubborn" to pretend.

In March, Megan announced she had rejoined Only Fans - charging subscribers £19 a month to view her content.

The website is popular with social media stars sharing X-rated content that they can't get away with on other platforms such as Instagram - but Megan insists it isn't all about nudes.

Although she received daily abuse over the decision at first, Megan said: "I'm sure if I went out of my way to look for everyone's opinions, I would find lots of negative feedback.

"But I’m so happy I got on there and didn’t worry about what people were saying and if I was going to be judged - because it’s an amazing platform for women to use.

"Pretty much all my content is similar to my Instagram. It's all bikini and underwear pics, then the odd glamour shot from when I used to do that.

"There is the occasional topless pic, but I don’t think it’s as raunchy as people are expecting."

It's thought Megan has raked in thousands from the site, admitting she's had as many as 2,000 subscribers at one time - which could total £38,000 for a month of fees.

She said: "I had 2,000 followers at one point, when I first joined.

"I think that was everyone being like ‘oh my God, what’s she going to put? Is she going back to the webcam stuff?’

"But it’s really pretty tame, it’s no different to what Page 3 used to be."

Megan previously vowed to never go back to glamour modelling - so why the change of heart?

She said: "When I first came out of the Villa, you get taken into this office with a guy from ITV and you’re told all the stories that have come out (about you).

"At the time that was super overwhelming, I was worried what my family were going to think and all their friends.

"It was a big shock to see how negatively people had reacted to me working in the sex industry, doing webcam work, being a stripper and doing glamour modelling.

In a society where you’re either made out to be frigid or getting slut shamed, why should I not take ownership of my body?

"So at the time I was freaked out and said ‘oh God no, I’m never going to do that, that’s the old me’.

"But in hindsight, I talk all the time about women owning their bodies, and in a society where you’re either made out to be frigid or getting slut shamed, why should I not take ownership of my body?

"That’s what I’ve really done with Only Fans, I’ve regained control. I won't let people belittle me for being in the sex industry and glamour modelling world, I’ve taken it into my own hands and now have creative control.

"It's a great excuse for me to get glammed up and take great pictures - something to look back at when I’m 40."

During our chat, Megan also opened up about the pressures of dating in the public eye.

She said: "When you meet someone and you click, you think ‘what’s everyone gonna say?’

"I’ve only really just come out as bisexual, so I feel like if I ever date a guy it’s like ‘what, so you’re straight now?’

"That’s so infuriating because for me it’s not like that at all, I’ve always said it’s about the connection you have with the person.

"There’s definitely that pressure of being bisexual in the public eye.

"I think I worry about the longevity of relationships too.

"Because normally if you’re seeing someone it’s only your close friends that know, so if that it only lasts a month or a few months, no-one’s judging you.

"Whereas now I think people think I can’t hold down a relationship.

"But I’m young and I’m not going to force myself to stay with someone if it’s not there on both sides."

In Love Island, Megan coupled up with Eyal Booker, 24, before dumping him and moving onto Wes Nelson, 22, who she dated for six months until January 2019.

The reality star opened up about her sexuality and went onto date Towie's Demi Sims, 23, who she met on Celebs Go Dating, then singer-songwriter and footballer Chelcee Grimes, 28, who she was in an on-off relationship with for around six months.

Megan also revealed she has been "talking to someone" in recent weeks, but kept tight lipped about who they are.

She said: "I’m talking to someone but I don’t really want to jinx it and go into too much detail. It’s really early days.

"I think lockdown’s really made me slow down and not rush into things, it’s good just getting to know someone."

Megan moved back into her family home in Southend, Essex, during lockdown, living with her parents and brother Kurtis, 25.

She said: "I moved back in with my parents which was lovely at the beginning of lockdown, but you can imagine by the third week we all wanted to kill each other.

"It was madness with four adults all under one roof."

I’m so happy for Dani, it’s so exciting. I think as we all saw in the Villa when we had the baby task, she's going to take to motherhood super well

Fellow 2018 Love Islander Dani Dyer, 23, announced she was pregnant earlier this week - with her boyfriend Sammy Kimmence.

And Megan says she knows she'll be a fantastic mum - after watching her in the Villa baby task.

She said: "I’m so happy for Dani, it’s so exciting. I think as we all saw in the Villa when we had the baby task, she’s so mothering.

"She looked after everyone in the Villa, so I know she’ll take to motherhood super well.

"I’m so excited to meet the little one. We were actually going to meet up with Samira a few weeks ago and then that didn’t happen for different reasons. But I can’t wait to see her."

Megan also said she'd love to have her own kids one day, be that with a man or a woman.

She said: "One hundred per cent I’d love to have kids one day, but I want to be really steady with the partner I’m with and for my career to be in a good place.

"I would definitely consider adopting but I think I’d want to carry my own child as well.

"If I was with a woman who wanted to have kids also, I would love to have my eggs carried by her and then I’d carry her eggs, so we’re carrying each other's.

"But I know that’s super expensive and some women don’t want to carry babies.

"I would consider a sperm donor. I definitely want to carry my own kids, be a full on mum. My mum set the bar high for me."

Megan, who's in talks for her own podcast about female empowerment and mental health, also revealed she's in the process of buying a doer-upper in Essex.

She said: "It's really exciting and has kept me busy during lockdown.

"My mortgage literally just got approved a few days ago but I can't wait, it's going to be a project so I won't be able to move straight in. It feels like I'm a proper adult now."
