She said: 'My mum and I are really open about sex. I had braces on my teeth and I remember asking her if it would be OK to do stuff with a boy with my braces.
'She said: "Yes, but promise me you'll wait until you're 16". It happened about a week before my 16th birthday and I thought, "It's near enough, I haven't broken my promise to my mum".'
Megan lost her virginity to a boy she was with at her friend's house and said they both kept most of their clothes on and there was no foreplay or kissing.
Following this brief romance, Megan had her first serious boyfriend in college and experienced her first orgasm in this relationship.
