Nikki has voiced opinions on rape culture following the Brock Turner case, suggesting Judge Aaron Persky, who handed down Turner's sentence, should be a synonym for rape apologist. She said she quit drinking before 2013 and doing so made sex awkward, as she had relied upon being intoxicated to make it less awkward.
Tatum joins the likes of Lena Dunham and Comedy Central's Nikki Glaser, who've spoken out about rape culture in light of the Stanford case.
I didn't realize how awkward we were with sex until I quit drinking over four years ago. We rely on alcohol to have sex so much. Everyone does. Often in my standup I ask people in the audience who has had sex with someone for the first time when they were stone-cold sober? No one can ever say that they've done it! It doesn't happen! It's because it's so uncomfortable, and it's such a weird thing to do. When I got sober, part of it was because I was having relationships that were based on getting drunk because I couldn't be intimate with someone unless I was fucked up...I had to get inebriated to do it! And then I'd get into these relationships where I had to be drunk to have sex, and there was no real relationship there.
