The New York Times has obtained documents from a four-day long deposition that took place in Philadelphia 10 years ago, during which Bill Cosby was questioned about his encountered with a young woman who had accused him of drugging and molesting her. 

The documents present Cosby as an an "unapologetic, cavalier playboy," who used his fame, influence and Quaaludes in the "calculated pursuit of young women," the Times writes. Cosby denies the title of sexual predator, but, as excerpts from the deposition make clear, was not above feigning interest in a woman's career and the death of her father because he "wanted to have sexual contact with her." 

The deposition reveals the casual manner with which Cosby began and ended sexual relationships with women around him, and the lengths he went to to hide his affairs from his wife. 

One of the most telling things that comes to light in the New York Times' reports is that Cosby seemed to think of himself as an experienced ladies' man, one who can expertly detect women's consent through nonverbal cues.

"I think I'm a pretty decent reader of people and their emotions in these romantic sexual things, whatever you want to call them," he said.
