(Newser) – Louis CK has responded to allegations from five women that he masturbated in front of them: "These stories are true." The comedian released a statement, which can be read here, on Friday—a day after the New York Times published a story about the allegations. Louis CK says he told himself "that what I did was OK because I never showed a woman my dick without asking first," but he's since learned that "when you have power over another person, asking them to look at your dick isn't a question." He says he had power over his accusers "and I wielded that power irresponsibly." And he admits that while he's "tried to learn" from his actions, he's also "run from them."
