Amy Schumer Jokes Sex Between Spouses is 'Disgusting'—'That's Your Family'

Amy Schumer has joked that it's "disgusting" for people to have sex with their spouses, because she sees them as "family" to one another.

The comedian, who has been married to chef and farmer Chris Fischer since 2018, made the comment during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday, as the Los Angeles-based show broadcasts from Brooklyn, New York, for the week.

When titular host Jimmy Kimmel asked Schumer how she was and what she had been up to, the Life & Beth star, 41, quipped that she had been "mostly kicking it with Adam Levine," in reference to the infidelity allegations he recently denied.

After Kimmel asked if her husband approved, Schumer raised more laughs, before commenting: "We have a good sex life... So we have found that the best weekday to have sex is always tomorrow... We're like, 'We ate today, maybe we won't eat tomorrow. That'll be a big day for us.'"

"But let's just be real," the 2022 Academy Awards co-host went on. "It's weird to have sex with your spouse."

When Kimmel asked what she meant by that, she responded: 'Because, like, that's your family... Holidays together, you know. He's my emergency contact... It's disgusting."

"I see what you mean," Kimmel said in response. "It's like having sex with a favorite uncle," to which Schumer agreed.

During her appearance on the show, New York native Schumer revealed that she and her family had recently moved to Brooklyn.

Schumer and Fischer are parents to three-year-old son Gene, whose name was changed by the couple after they realized their initial choice sounded unfortunate.

Speaking on her podcast 3 Girls, 1 Keith back in 2020, Schumer said that her son had been initially named Gene Attell Fischer. Her son's name is a tribute to Schumer's friend, comedian Dave Attell, who appeared in Schumer's film Trainwreck. Schumer appeared in his Netflix special Bumping Mics.

"So do you guys know that Gene, our baby's name, is officially changed? It's now Gene David Fischer," the comedian told her co-hosts. "It was Gene Attell Fischer, but we realized that we by accident named our son genital. 'Gene Attell' sounds like 'genital.'"

Her co-hosts jumped in to point out the "genital fissure" sound-alike. Her co-host Keith Robinson asked if she'd spoken to Attell about the change, because the comic had been honored that Schumer had named her son after him.

"His middle name is now David, which is also after Attell, and my dad's middle name is David," she explained in response.

During an appearance on The Howard Stern Show shortly afterward, Schumer said that she doesn't plan on telling her son about his former middle name.

Schumer explained that she and her husband realized the name issue about a month into parenthood.

"You're like the new parents, like just kind of tired and in ecstasy, and then, I don't know if some troll on the internet or somebody, and I read it, and I was like, 'Oh my god,'" she said.

When Stern said that he assumed that the comic was going for the laugh, she said that it was simply a mistake. "Everybody kind of gave me credit, and I was just like, 'no.' That is just a huge f*** up," she said.
