Amy Schumer is never one to shy away from talking about sex.

Amy Schumer did not consent to sex when she lost her virginity.

Admitting that it took her a while to realize what had happened, the comedian recalled her first sexual encounter being “not a good one” and that the guy she was with kept apologizing during the act.

“My first sexual experience was not a good one,” she told Marie Claire [via The Huffington Post]. “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.'”

Explaining that the man is no longer in her life, Schumer, 35, shared that she doesn’t want to punish him for what he did to her when she was only 17.

“This was 17 years ago. There are just so many factors,” she explained. She also added, “I had another time with a boyfriend where I was saying, ‘No, stop,’ and it was just completely ignored.”

Schumer went on to discuss how common that type of experience is to women around the world. Although she didn’t specifically identify herself as a victim, she did speak about the victim-blaming culture women constantly face in society today.

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

In the same interview, Schumer revealed she’s still trying to get the hang of her serious relationship with furniture designer Ben Hanisch.

“Being in love is the scariest thing in the world. You want to f-ing cry and scream. I can’t handle it,” she admitted. “I feel like Ben is the first guy who’s really been my boyfriend. There are guys who, if they heard me say that, would want to punch me in the face, but yeah, it’s the truth.”
