The New York Times on Saturday posted further excerpts from Cosby's 1,000-page deposition in the civil suit filed by Andrea Constand, a former Temple University employee who alleges he drugged and molested her.
In the newly released material, the now-78-year-old comedian reveals why he believed their relations were consensual.
"I walk her out. She does not look angry. She does not say to me, don’t ever do that again," he told Constand's lawyer under oath during the four-day deposition. "She doesn’t walk out with an attitude of a huff, because I think that I’m a pretty decent reader of people and their emotions in these romantic sexual things, whatever you want to call them."
The Times describes Cosby's manner throughout the deposition as "alternately annoyed, mocking, occasionally charming and sometimes boastful, often blithely describing sexual encounters in graphic detail." Cosby's attitudes towards sex and women were also highlighted when he was asked if he ever told anyone about his relations with Constand.
"I am a man, the only way you will hear about who I had sex with is from the person I had it with," he told Constand's lawyer.
When asked why, Cosby explains:
"When I was a boy it was a thing that girls used to say, please don't tell anybody. But it is something that I've learned as you grow older that they’re the first people to go and tell somebody after something has happened."
