Power, control, and a pathological desire to elicit fear all play into why a man might engage in exhibitionism, sex therapists say, in the wake of bombshell revelations against comedian Louis C.K. Experts told NBC News masturbating in front of women without their permission is typically about exerting control, not an attempt at seduction. The first came out earlier this year.
Actress Rebecca Corry spoke to ABC News' Good Morning America today about her 2005 encounter with Louis C.K., in which she says he asked if he could masturbate in front of her in her dressing room. "Louis's unprofessional and inappropriate behavior with female colleagues has led us to decide not to produce a second stand up special, as had been planned".
One of the women publicly accusing Louis C.K. of sexual misconduct is speaking out. As Nussbaum reminds us, C.K.'s standup "is not merely confessional... it's also focused on sex and ethics, as well as on questions of decency, fatherhood, masculinity, and, at times, feminism". FX Networks and F.X.P. take all necessary actions to protect our employees and thoroughly investigate any allegations of misconduct within our workplace.
The content removed by HBO includes stand-up specials and its series Lucky Louie, starring C.K.in the title role.

Nintendo and Universal in talks for animated Mario Bros. movie
There's yet to be any official word from Nintendo or Illumination on the deal: Neither side is answering questions. Illumination, which is behind the Despicable Me franchise and subsequent spin-offs, declined to comment.
In the same way, when episodes of C.K's show "Louie" dealt with sexual assault, it was easy to assume they were informed by empathy.
In addition, the network also announced that they were removing all Louis' past projects from their On Demand services. Distribution company the Orchard canceled its premiere ahead of the Times piece, and announced that it is "giving careful consideration to the timing and release of the film and continuing to review the situation".
Still, Corry didn't want to go public with her story at the time, even though she claims Louis' behaviour was "sort of common knowledge in the comedy world", because she just wanted to move on with her life.
"When you're that powerful and you're generating that kind of money and you can literally knight someone's life by giving them a show, you know, that's what going to happen", she said of C.K., 50. "This is inexcusable and he needs to address it", Michael Ian Black tweeted.
Louis C.K. will no longer participate in "Night of Too Many Stars: America Unites for Autism Programs" on November 18, HBO said in a statement.
