Cosby Deposition Reveals Shocking Facts

The New York Times obtained access to a deposition Saturday detailing Bill Cosby’s descriptions of coercing women into sex acts with drugs and his fame. The deposition is the result of four days of questioning in a Philadelphia hotel 10 years ago, after 19-year-old Andrea Constand sought legal action against the comedian. At this stage, Cosby has never been charged with a crime and has denied numerous accusations of sexual assault. Within the deposition, though, he describes courting Constand, including a graphic passage in which he recalls asking her to tell her mother “about the orgasm” to demonstrate that the sex was consensual. The deposition also reveals that during some of his travels in the 1970s, Cosby would go by the alias Seymour Rapaport to make his actions more discreet.
