Comedienne Amy Schumer Shares the Time Her Ex Came Out As Gay
“I really needed a boost of sexual confidence during that time of my life. I’d recently learned that a guy I’d been in love with and had dated in the past was gay. Even though it had been a while since we had dated, it still broke my heart when he came out to me. And it made me begin to question myself. This person who made me feel beautiful and sexy for so long was attracted to men. When you get older and wiser, you get your confidence from within, not from the person you are having sex with. But finding out someone I’d dated was gay at that moment in my life was giving me a hard time. I was having trouble feeling like a sexual being and was wondering about my own worth.”
— A surprisingly un-humorous yet honest excerpt from comedienne Amy Schumer’s upcoming memoir The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo about her feelings after her ex came out as gay and the one-night stand that helped her get her groove back (it’s allegedly the ONLY one-night stand she has ever had which is pretty surprising considering her sexually voracious, drunk girl persona). You can read the full excerpt at Goodreads. She later says that the resulting sex was “just a one-night stand in Tampa. But I felt like Marlene Dietrich in Morocco.” The Emmy-winning comedienne reportedly snagged $8 to $10 million for her book.
