Five women came forward and shared their stories with the NYTimes about inappropriate sexual encounters with Louis C.K. You can read the entire piece over there. It’s a slow-motion train wreck.

The lowlights:

— Two women, the comedy duo Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov, accuse Louis C.K. of removing all of his clothes and masturbating in front of them. “He proceeded to take all of his clothes off, and get completely naked, and started masturbating.”

After he ejaculated on his stomach, they said, they fled. He called after them: “He was like, ‘Which one is Dana and which one is Julia?’” Ms. Goodman recalled.

— Comedian Abby Schachner said that she could hear Louis C.K. masturbating on the phone with her when she called to invite him to a comedy show.

— He asked comedian Rebecca Corry, who he worked with on a pilot, if he could masturbate in front of her. She declined. “His face got red,” she recalled, “and he told me he had issues.” (Courteney Cox and David Arquette, producers on the pilot, confirmed the incident).

“In 2015, a few months before the now-defunct website Defamer circulated rumors of Louis C.K.’s alleged sexual misconduct, Ms. Corry also received an email from Louis C.K., which was obtained by The Times, saying he owed her a “very very very late apology.” When he phoned her, he said was sorry for shoving her in a bathroom. Ms. Corry replied that he had never done that, but had instead asked to masturbate in front of her. Responding in a shaky voice, he acknowledged it and said, “I used to misread people back then,” she recalled.”

In other words, he confused Corry with another woman he behaved inappropriately with.

— Another woman, who chose to remain anonymous, said that he asked her repeatedly on the set of The Chris Rock Show in the ’90s to masturbate in front of her. She agreed, but questioned his disturbing behavior later.

— There are some suggestions that Louis C.K.’s agent attempted to silence the women. The agent, Dave Becky, denies these allegations.

— Louis C.K. would not offer comment on the story.
