In an attempt to get more court documents unsealed from her client Andrea Constand’s previously settled 2006 case against Bill Cosby, attorney Dolores Troiani raised the idea that Cosby potentially suffers from a sexual disorder.
“Although some of the women engaged in consensual relations with Cosby, their accounts substantiated defendant’s alleged predilection for somnophilia,” Constand’s lawyer, Dolores Troiani, wrote in a motion this week.
Dr. Michael First defined the condition as “being aroused by the idea of having sex with someone sleeping,” telling the New York Post pleasure comes to the perpetrator whether actual sexual contact occurs or not.
Constand’s attorney argues Cosby’s comments over the year make his right to privacy null and void.
“The release of these documents will assist other women who have been victimized and bring awareness to the fact that sexual assault is not just committed with a gun or knife but is also committed by mentors who engage in exploitative behaviors,” Troiani wrote in asking a judge to unseal more court documents.
