Amy Schumer might be riding high right now, married to chef Chris Fischer and starring in a groundbreaking new movie "I Feel Pretty", but that doesn't mean she's not as vulnerable and human as the rest of us.
The actress-comic spoke to Oprah Winfrey in a "SuperSoul Conversations" episode recently, where she opened up about her experience with "gray-area" rape - how she had lost her virginity to an ex-boyfriend without giving consent, even worse, while she was unconscious.
She said, "When we hear about rape when we're children, and we're being warned again, it's about a guy popping out from a bush, dragging you into a car...he's some villain. They don't say it's probably a guy you know really well, it could be your husband, it could be your friend. So you think when that happens to you, 'this isn't someone I want to see rotting in a jail cell but what he did to me was wrong and I didn't consent'."
According to Amy, she's tried to address the issue of "gray areas" in sexual abuse in her stand-up comedy over the years, in an effort to educate the men in her audience about the importance of consent.
She revealed, "For me, I lost my virginity while I was asleep. And that's not okay, so in my stand-up, I would say 'if she's asleep, that's a no.'"
