Former Love Island star Megan Barton-Hanson has opened up on her first sexual experiences with women.
Earlier this year, the dating show contestant came out as bisexual, revealing her attraction to women.
The 25-year-old model said she waited to come out because she feared society would judge her for liking men, as well as women.
She took part in the 2018 season of the show, where opposite-sex couples in a Spanish villa ‘couple up’ and compete to win love, as well as a cash prize.
‘I want to find someone to travel with and enjoy life with, so I feel like I just need to be a bit brave now and say it how it is. It’s so easy to let fear of people’s opinions stop you from being true to yourself,’ she then added.
Megan Barton-Hanson finds women more passionate and attentive
In an interview with Cosmpolitan, Barton-Hanson revealed details about her attraction to women.
‘I have always found women attractive and I’ve had physical relationships with girls, but I’ve never actually dated or had a long term relationship with one. For me it’s about connection and getting on with someone, it doesn’t matter about their sex or anything like that,’ she said.
She then added that her first experience with a girl was with a couple who had been together for five years. She also found women to be more ‘attentive’ than men in the bedroom.
‘For me part of having sex is to please the other person and for them to enjoy it. With men it’s about them being happy, but with women it’s not a race. With boys it’s like, “come as quickly as you can”. Women are more passionate in my experience,’ she also said.

Megan Barton-Hanson also revealed she auditioned for season three of Love Island, but was unsuccessful.
She thinks the reason for this was because she told the producers she was interested in both men and women.
‘I just felt like I needed to get with a guy because society said so, but after the shit I’ve been through, I just want to see how it goes with a woman,’ she told The Sun.
Barton-Hanson revealed she was actually in a same-sex relationship when she was a teenager.
‘We would do everything together,’ she revealed. ‘I found her more and more attractive, and not even the way she looked, just like the way she was in general.
‘I just feel like I have a deeper connection with women,’ she said.
The new season of Love Island started last night (3 June).
Megan Barton-Hanson revealed she’s got a crush on both Anna Vakili and Tommy Fury, the brother of boxer Tyson Fury.
