In a deposition given 10 years ago in a Philadelphia hotel room and obtained by the New York Times, Bill Cosby described in detail his sexual dealings and “rendezvous” with a slew of women, some whom he tried to trade mentorship for sex.
The Times described his demeanor over the four days of questioning as that of “an unapologetic, cavalier playboy,” as he graphically detailed his sexual encounters.
Cosby’s testimony came as he defended himself in a lawsuit filed by Andrea Constand, who worked as a basketball manager at Temple University and accused Cosby of drugging and molesting her. She is one of the more than 40 women who have accused Cosby of assault to date.
Earlier this month, parts of the deposition were unsealed, revealing Cosby admitting to using quaaludes in his sexual pursuits.
The Times notes that throughout his testimony, Cosby “comes across as alternately annoyed, mocking, occasionally charming and sometimes boastful, often blithely describing sexual encounters in graphic detail.”
