The sexual assault trial of embattled comedian Bill Cosby has taken a dramatic turn as Montgomery County Detective James Reape read portions of a deposition given by Cosby in 2005. The deposition was from court records related to the original sexual assault allegations against alleged victim Andrea Constand, whom Cosby is accused of assaulting at his Philadelphia home.

The deposition shows that Cosby admitted giving Constand pills that were supposedly Benadryl and an herbal concoction to help her relax. But what he did after she relaxed and the casual way he described his behavior and sexual technique are shocking.

Cosby describes in the 2005 deposition how he penetrated Constand with his fingers:

“I don’t hear her say anything. And I don’t feel her say anything. And so I continue, and I go into the area that is somewhere between permission and rejection. I go slowly. I don’t want to go to the orifice yet,” he further stated that Constand rubbed his erect penis and “may have moaned.”

The detective continues to read, “We are what could be called in a spooning position. I go inside of her pants. …She then took her hand and put it on top of my hand to push it in further. … She makes a sound which I feel was an orgasm and she was wet. She was wet when I went in.”

Cosby admitted he received seven prescriptions for the now-banned sedative Quaaludes so he could give them to women he found sexually attractive. He is adamant in his defense that the sexual contact with Constand was consensual and that they did not have intercourse. Cosby admitted that he would often give Quaaludes to women that he wanted to have sex with, and in those instances, once again, Cosby stated that the encounters were consensual.

It is a troubling matter for many who were fans of the iconic comedian. Throughout his career, Cosby has been adamantly and vocally anti-drug. Now, it is being revealed that it was all a sham to hide his perversity and extramarital affairs. Cosby is facing up to 10 years in prison if convicted on the sexual assault charges.
