Amy Schumer’s first sexual encounter “was not a good one,” the comedian recently told Marie Claire’s Allison Glock for the magazine’s August issue.

In the interview, where they also discussed Schumer’s career, her upcoming book and her family, the 35-year-old revealed that when she lost her virginity at 17, it was not consensual. Schumer said that, at the time, she didn’t realize what had happened.

My first sexual experience was not a good one. I didn’t think about it until I started reading my journal again. When it happened, I wrote about it almost like a throwaway. It was like, And then I looked down and realized he was inside me. He was saying, “I’m so sorry” and “I can’t believe I did this.”


Schumer told Glock that the man is no longer in her life and she doesn’t feel the need to punish him for what he did. “This was 17 years ago. There are just so many factors,” she said, adding: “I had another time with a boyfriend where I was saying, ‘No, stop,’ and it was just completely ignored.”

1. Somehow she's gotten the impression that we are all required to know about her sex life.

It is incorrect.

6. Nobody should talk about their experiences, ever.

Things need to be kept behind closed doors. no good comes from talking about experiences, like people feeling they're not alone in going through things.

23. That you think that is what she is talking about

Is the point of her comedy: the obsession and sexiest perspective of gender and sexuality.
Amy is a comic genius and so few get it.

Very brutal in her social commentary, too, in a good way.

8. Sex is dirty and filthy and should never be spoken of.

Sex is dirty and filthy and should never be spoken of; even in those cases when it may illustrate a larger point.

(I figured as long as we're both guessing as to motive of her missive...)

11. She wasn't talking about her sex life ... She was recounting her rape. There's a difference.

15. I agree it was rape. And she is clearly ambivalent about it.

Which relegates this story to just another tale of Amy drinking and fucking.

And before anyone accuses me of downplaying rape or slut-shaming, listen to her comedy shows. Drinking and fucking is the basis of her comedy.

17. Do you think her comedy shows are her way of coping with her first "sexual" experience?

This is why women and girls don't discuss rape. Right here, your post.

27. Yes, women are such dirty things that their experiences should never be discussed

Heaven forbid other women might finally have the courage to speak up about what's actually going on out here.

And yes, even you can be raped, even if you're 90 and barricaded inside your home with a loaded shotgun in your lap. Yes, even if you're a man. Just don't expect the rapist to go to jail. Few do. Boys will be boys.

Another celeb that can't stop being in the news, somehow, some way.

A lot of young women---including my daughter look up to Amy and admire her for being who she is---and not really giving a fuck what other people think about her.

22. I'm baffled

Why would people who are sick of her and don't want to hear about her sex life, click on the thread and then take the time to respond to it? Ever consider that what she had to say may resonate with other women or young girls who thought they were the only one this happened to?

24. I am as well

a woman speaks of two non-consensual encounters. The second clearly a date rape. Yet we have DUers saying STFU.

Her last quote is so true-
“It makes people so mad if you’re not a perfect victim.”

31. Some of the responses are really horrible and dismissive

And are the reason why girls and women don't talk about rape, and why rape culture continues to exist.
