Comedian Louis C.K. has been accused of sexual misconduct by five women, including one who claimed he exposed his genitals. Meanwhile, a video clip of the comedian defending masturbation on his show FX sitcom "Louie" has resurfaced.

The clip of the sitcom resurfaced just as the New York Times released a report Thursday that detailed accusations from actress Dana Min Goodman, among other women, alleging the comedian of sexual misconduct that included masturbation in their presence.

Louis C.K. has been known to make light of sometimes lewd topics in his comedy, and the comedian touched on masturbation in a 2011 episode of his hit dramedy "Louie," in which he appeared on a fictionalized Fox News episode of "Red Eye" with Greg Gutfeld.

In the episode, his character Louie commented on an apparent habit of chronic masturbation. He is joined by a female character who roundly denounced the act by citing religion. In episode clip, when the host asked Louie about the topic, he validated it. The female guest lamented Louie’s act and the character quickly fired back.

"I like it, its easy, its fun and nobody gets hurt," the comedian said in character. "How can you tell people not to masturbate? I mean, nobody can not do it. Since there’s been people, every single one of them has masturbated. Its like telling people not to breathe, its not fair."

He added: "It keeps me sane. I’m a good citizen, I’m a good father, I recycle and I masturbate. And I’m proud of it. And later I’m going to masturbate and I’m going to think about you. And there’s nothing you can do about it."

Goodman claimed that Louis C.K. acted inappropriately in 2002 when the comedian allegedly requested that she and another woman join him in his hotel room after an event.

"And then he really did it," Goodman told the New York Times. "He proceeded to take all of his clothes off and get completely naked and started masturbating."

Louis C.K. is among the latest on a long list of Hollywood figures who have been accused of sexual misconduct this year, including movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and actors Ben Affleck and Kevin Spacey.
