Amy Schumer Is ‘In Love’ with Boyfriend Ben Hanisch, Talks Losing Her Virginity

Amy Schumer Shuts Down Body Shamers
"This is how I look. I feel happy."

Amy Schumer is never one to shy away from talking about sex. So naturally, the comedienne has a few things to say about it in her latest interview with Vogue.

Gracing the cover of the fashion magazine, the 35-year-old admits that though her stand-up routine consists a lot of talking about doing it, she wasn’t very sexual until she went to college.

“I was always boy crazy, but I wasn’t promiscuous,” she tells the publication, adding that her friends were Catholic school girls with bad reputations. “They were acting out sexually years before me. I loved being around that, but I didn’t have sex until I was seventeen. And I didn’t give a blow job until I was well into college.”

She adds, “I’m sure I had some sort of dick in my mouth, but I wasn’t performing sex acts until later.”

According to her, everything changed when she started to attend Towson University, a school known for always ending up on one of those “hottest college girls” lists in lad mags.

“I lost all my self-esteem freshman year,” she says. “I think I was maybe in the twenty-fifth percentile in hotness.”

“And then in my sophomore year, I probably had sex with six guys, and I was like, Maybe I’m like Samantha in Sex and the City and I’ll just keep this train movin’ so that I don’t get attached to anybody,” she continues. “And you won’t believe this, but that did not work out. But I always thought that sex was funny. I was always interested in it.'”

These days, the Trainwreck star, whose much-anticipated memoir The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo will be released next month, is happily dating a 29-year-old furniture designer named Ben Hanisch.

“We’re in love,” she says. “And we’re still in total honeymoon phase. It’s a real relationship. Who knows what will happen, but we’re real good right now.”

As for her future? Well, Schumer isn’t slowing down one bit. Though critics might like to shut her down, she’s not going to let a few haters stop her from being herself.

“I didn’t really remember seeing that many women talk about sex in stand-up. Of course they have. Joan [Rivers] was doing it before anyone else on television. But I was like, I’ll be that,” she says. “I just want to get absolutely everything out of life, but I wouldn’t be surprised if I wound up paralyzed.”
