Over the past couple weeks, Amy Schumer has pretended to audition for The Real Housewives franchise and pretended that she may one day be The Bachelorette.

But the comedian keeps it very real in a new interview with Glamour.

"People think that I have more sex than I do," Schumer says, citing her raunchy stand-up material.

"But you know what? I made a decision. I’m gonna do this anyway. I’m gonna keep speaking up and creating all this work.

"I could have roped it in and hopefully found a mate. But I made a decision. And it does feel like sometimes it’s a sacrifice for my love life and social life."

Aware of how she may come across by using the word sacrifice, Schumer is sure to add the following: "Hero alert!"

Earlier this year, during her Glamour U.K. Woman n of the Year Awards speech, Schumer shocked the crowd by announcing:

“I’m probably like 160 pounds right now, and I can catch a dick whenever I want."

Does she regret the candid comment? Not at all.

"I’m proud of what I said.

"I think it’s good to see somebody saying, ‘I have a belly, and I have cellulite, and I still deserve love – and to catch the old D. And to not apologize.’

Nor should she!

In conclusion, Schumer says it’s silly not to acknowledge a double standard at work here.

"If a guy was like, ‘I can get p—y whenever I want,’ that guy would be a d–khead. But to deny that there’s a major difference is ridiculous.

"For women, we’re taught to eat less until we disappear. And trained to believe that if you don’t look like everyone else, then you’re unlovable,

"And men are not trained that way. Men can look like whatever and still date a supermodel."
