London - A defence lawyer for Max Clifford, Britain's top celebrity publicist who is on trial for a string of sexual assaults, on Wednesday accused prosecution witnesses of providing unreliable evidence about the size of his penis.

Lawyer Richard Horwell said conflicting claims of women made in court so far, suggesting the 70-year-old PR guru had a "micro-penis" or one that was "enormous", had been incorrect.

A doctor had measured Clifford's penis at five and a quarter inches (about 13.5cm) long when flaccid, Horwell told the jury at Southwark Crown Court in London.

"Certainly not freakishly small and certainly not enormous - not one of these witnesses can be relied upon," he said.

Clifford is accused of using his position as an entertainment power broker to abuse women. He denies 11 counts of indecent assault against seven women and girls between 1966 and 1984.

Taking the stand for the first time, Clifford denied ever forcing himself on a woman and said the suggestion that he was sexually interested in children was "utterly revolting".

Put to him that some of his alleged victims claimed he bragged about having a small penis, Clifford questioned why anybody would say that.

He added: "The women I've actually had relationships with, no-one ever said to me that I've got a small penis or a large penis."

Clifford admitted having sex in his office but only with a woman with whom he was having an affair.

Asked if he had ever had sex without consent, Clifford replied: "No. I get more pleasure from a woman getting pleasure from sex."

He also denied claims he impersonated Hollywood bigwigs such as "James Bond" producer Cubby Broccoli and actor Charles Bronson to woo girls, and said it was "ridiculous" to suggest he told women they needed to sleep with powerful men to get film parts.

The trial continues.
