Amy Schumer Was Raped The First Time She Had Sex

In a new interview with Marie Claire, comedian Amy Schumer opens up about her first sexual experience. Unfortunately it was anything but funny; Schumer reveals that she lost her virginity during a nonconsenual sexual encounter.

“My first sexual experience was not a good one,” she told the magazine. “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 of me. He was saying, ‘I’m so sorry’ and ‘I can’t believe I did this.'”

Schumer lost her virginity when she was 17-years-old, and says she no longer speaks to the man. While she doesn’t explicitly use the term “rape” in the interview, we’d just like to repeat that nonconsensual sex is rape. It’s never ok.

Schumer also elaborated that this isn’t the only time she experienced non-consensual sex with a partner. “I had another time with a boyfriend where I was saying, ‘No, stop,’ and it was just completely ignored,” she continued.

In the full profile out July 19th, writer Allison Glock discussed with the actress just how common that kind of experience is. While Schumer never openly defined herself as a victim, she did allude to the culture of victim-blaming.

“You know, with the rape survivor, it’s not just shaming, it’s fury,” Schumer said. “It makes people so mad if you’re not a perfect victim.”
