Love Island’s Megan Barton Hanson reveals cast told her to stop having sex on TV and says she was s**t shamed aged 16

In an open letter to i News, the 26-year-old said she refused because she was "not ashamed of her high sex drive".

The candid letter saw Megan opening up about never-before-seen topics on the ITV2 show.

She explained: "Some of the cast were trying to tell me not to have sex again because they knew how I would be perceived. That proves pretty tricky when you are falling in love and living with the person 24/7."

The former glamour model also revealed that she had "been labelled a s**t from the age of 16" and was peer-pressured by a boy to send a sexual video of herself.

After she declined the request the boy asked if she "had even masturbated" before to which she lied and said yes.

Megan, 24, went on to explain that "the next day the whole school was talking about it" and she was left feeling "embarrassed and ashamed".

Megan penned the note in defence of her sexual history, explaining that upon leaving the villa she'd been informed she had received "death threats and 99 per cent were slut-shaming me".

Clearly impassioned by the subject Megan urged that: "Regardless of a woman’s motivation nobody has the right to judge or shame her for her career choices."

The former stripper admitted that she has "a high sex drive and that’s nothing to be ashamed of".

Before adding: "This is my body, my life, I own it and I’m proud."

The 24-year-old continued: "I don’t believe sex is dirty, sordid or anything to be ashamed of.

"It’s totally natural."

Megan encouraged women not to feel ashamed of their past choices, saying:

"Have I made mistakes? Hell yes, but who hasn’t! Should I be ashamed of those mistakes? Hell no!"

The Essex babe said she hopes that by speaking out she can help the "young Megans out there to feel empowered."

Megan went so far as to say: "It breaks my heart to think that girls out there are getting stick and feeling ashamed while guys are labelled heroes by their mates."

The Love Island star has been vocal about her frustration at the double standards applied to men and women.

Earlier this month Megan appeared on Good Morning Britain with her boyfriend Wes Nelson, wearing a T-shirt, with the words ‘Stop valuing women based on their sexual history’ written on it.

Quizzed about her choice of attire by Susanna Reid, she said: “I think it’s really unfair and an old-fashioned way to look at it.

"Just because someone has worked either in the sex industry or done glamour modelling … it’s frowned upon, it’s 2018 women should be able to do what they want with their body.”

She added: “I slept with people on TV and people want me to be ashamed of it. I am not.”
