How Amy Schumer Dealt With Finding Out Her Ex Is Gay

An excerpt from comedian Amy Schumer’s new book The Girl With The Lower Back Tattoo describes a night of passion between the comedian and a hunky marine.

Amy was in her full on hangover-travel clothes when she met a hunky British Marine named Sam on a flight. They chatted on the plane and exchanged emails. To her surprise, after her show, Sam actually sent her an email. Not being one for hook ups, Amy made an exception for this one and explained in her book why…

“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.”

Amy then turned down future flings with Sam…

“Let the record show that I’m not suggesting one-night stands are cure-alls for broken hearts and low self-esteem—but sometimes they really can fix a specific problem. And even better, sometimes sex is just its own reward.”

How does that saying go? “The best way to get over someone is to get under someone else.” We don’t know if that is true, but it worked for Amy.
