Harvey Weinstein has ‘no testicles and appears to have a vagina’, says rape accuser Jessica Mann during trial
Jessica Mann's testimony describes how she met Weinstein, several incidents of coercion during their relationship, and two especially violent incidents of rape
Harvey Weinstein's rape accuser Jessica Mann gave her testimony in court this Friday in the ongoing trial of the disgraced producer, offering up shocking detail to the courts in describing the nature of Weinstein's assaults.
According to the Daily Mail, Mann met Weinstein a Hollywood party towards the end of 2012. Weinstein met with her a few times after that, once coercing her into giving him a back massage, that Mann described as "uncomfortable." On another occassion, Weinstein forcibly performed oral sex on her, and Jessica Mann said, "I faked an orgasm to get out of it. He asked me how it was, if I liked it. I was nervous, so I told him it was the best I ever had."
Mann entered into a relationship with Weinstein, and describes her confusion. "'I was confused about what happened, and I made the decision to begin a relationship with him. Part of that was because I was sexual with very few people," she said, also adding, "'I entered into what I thought was going to be a real relationship, but it was extremely degrading from that point on."
According to Jessica Mann: "The first time I saw him naked I thought he was deformed or intersex. I didn't know if he was a burn victim but it would make sense. He does not have testicles and it appears like he has a vagina. He does have a penis."
The rape allegation that brought charges against Weinstein happend in March, 2013, at a hotel room. Mann describes how Weinstein booked them a hotel room, which he took her too, despite Mann having "pleaded" with the hotel staff not to give them a room. A frightened Mann describes how she was forced to undress herself before he raped her.
Mann also described a later incident after Weinstein and Mann's relationship had ended. Mann had been instructed not to date anyone in the entertainment industry, but during one meeting, Weinstein asked her about the man she was dating. It is at this point in her testimony that Mann broke down into sobs, taking a break in her testimony to recover.
Mann said that the second Weinstein knew she was dating an actor, he "flipped me up from my chair." He dragged her into the bedroom, after which, "He stood over me and said take your clothes off and I said 'no' again. He said: 'I don't have time for games' and lunged at me with both hands onto my pants and he ripped my pants so hard and so fast off me that I had three scratches down each leg from the top of my thigh to right below the knee...the middle scratch had lots of blood."
Mann blacked out during the experience, only to awake to find Weinstein's penis in her mouth.
Weinstein's defence lawyers have focused on e-mails between the two, wherein Mann has not once accused Weinstein of harming her. This, according to the defence, implies that the relationship between Mann and Weinstein was utterly consensual.
