I think this is correct. If it is true, why does Cohen continue to deny it? He knows he went there and he should be worried about if there is any proof that he was. Is he stupid? If it was me, I'd do one of two things: own up to it or shut up about it. Denying what you suspect may later be proven to be true seems batshit nuts.

Well, it might all matter if there's video. Trump's self-image very much includes 'I am a stud' and 'I guarantee you there's no problem' about the size of his penis.

Video or stills that would graphically contradict these claims would chip away at the degree to which his fans love to identify with him. If he's a tiny-dicked futile flopper, and the evidence is right in everyone's face, day in and day out---that's going to be a problem. Because image is everything.

I don't think it's necessarily that damning. He has much bigger problems now and it's not a good idea for him to be testifying about any of that stuff (regardless of what happened), so he's probably going to have to plead the fifth in any civil cases, and there's no point in suing someone just so you can plead the fifth when you get to court.

If his hands are in the photo, his dick will look enormous.
