If there was a central thesis for Amy Schumer’s hosting of the 2015 MTV Movie Awards, it’s that women masturbate. Granted, that may not come as much of a surprise to most, but the comedian went out of her way to inform the world of that fact a few times throughout the two-hour show.
It all started with the show’s monologue, when Schumer brought up “Magic Mike XXL.” “It really is magic,” she jokes. “Anytime I watch those guys, at least two of my fingers disappear.”
The masturbation comedy hit its peak with a sketch featuring Schumer, Amber Rose and Nikki Glaser, though. As the women arrive to see “Fifty Shades of Grey” and “Magic Mike XXL” in a theater, they brandish things like a selection of gourds, shower heads and even a vibrating purse. “Why can’t we just treat ourselves?” Schumer wonders out loud.
