“He probably moved my hand to his dick five to seven times,” she said. She compared the path they cut across his apartment to a football play.“It was 30 minutes of me getting up and moving and him following and sticking his fingers down my throat again. It felt like a fucking game.” Throughout the course of her short time in the apartment, she says she used verbal and non-verbal cues to indicate how uncomfortable and distressed she was.I don’t think that was noticed at all, or if it was, it was ignored.” Ansari wanted to have sex.She said she remembers him asking again and again, “Where do you want me to fuck you? She says she found the question tough to answer because she says she didn’t want to fuck him at all.The day after the incident, she wrote a long text to Ansari, saying: “I just want to take this moment to make you aware of [your] behavior and how uneasy it made me.” To that message, Ansari responds: “Clearly, I misread things in the moment and I’m truly sorry.” The mobile phone number from which his texts to her were sent matches up with his details on a searchable public register.
