There are bombshell revelations and new insight into the accusations of sexual abuse by Bill Cosby - and the revelations came from the star himself.

In a lengthy deposition obtained by the New York Times, Cosby talks in graphic detail about his calculated pursuit of young women.

According to the 10-year-old deposition, fame, fortune and occasionally drugs were a few of the tools and tactics used by Bill Cosby to seduce women into sexual encounters.

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

Cosby made the comments during a 4-day deposition for a lawsuit filed by a young woman. That woman accused Cosby of drugging and molesting her. Thirteen other women provided anonymous sworn statements supporting the plaintiff and alleging they, too were molested by the popular comedian. The case was settled in 2006.

Time and time again, the now 78-year-old Cosby has denied the sexual assault allegations. He has never been charged with a crime.

In the deposition, Cosby details numerous sexual encounters with many women, reports the Times. He acknowledges giving Quaaludes to some women, but adds it was not done without their knowledge.
