Together, the allegations indicate that Weinstein may have abused his power on a variety of fronts over decades, and identify a pattern of behavior in which Weinstein often invited women to hotels for “business meetings,” only to make sexual advances against their will.Most of the women Weinstein allegedly targeted were young and had little institutional power, and they say they were afraid to speak out afterward for fear that he would ruin their careers.“So, what would happen if, say, we’re having some champagne and I take my clothes off and you give me a massage? “And I’m, like, ‘That’s not going to happen.’ ” When she moved toward the door to leave, Weinstein lashed out, saying that she needed to lose weight “to compete with Mila Kunis,” and then, apparently in an effort to mollify her, promising a meeting with one of his female executives.

"He pushed me inside and rammed me up against the coat rack in my tiny hall and started fumbling at my gown. It was disgusting." She said she tried to push him away but was unable to as he was too heavy. Weinstein said that his neck was sore and that he needed a massage. When she yanked her hand away, she told me, Weinstein grabbed it again and pulled it toward his penis, which was visible and erect.

She told him that she could recommend a good masseuse. “I was asked by an intermediary to go out for dinner with a producer I had never heard of, at the time. Certainly it cost me.” According to Barba, Weinstein asked that she should immediately leave the country and that she should not be able to work in the US again.
Studying sexual satisfaction Respondents answered questions meant to gauge levels of autonomy, self-esteem and empathy, along with their sexual health and satisfaction.
Autonomy is defined as the strength to follow personal convictions even when they go against conventional wisdom, which usually increases as adolescents age and enter adulthood, Galinsky said.
