Harvey Weinstein once sent one of his rape accusers a box of gifts — including with movies, a bottle of Valium and ..chocolate penises.

The once-powerful producer sent the gifts to Annabella Sciorra sometime in the early 1990s after casting her in Miramax movies he was producing.
The gesture was “an effort to help me relax and not be so stressed,” Sciorra testified Thursday in Manhattan Supreme Court, adding that she felt on edge because Weinstein wanted her to film back-to-back movies.
The first care package, sent to her Central Park West apartment, contained movies including “His Girl Friday,” licorice, popcorn and a bottle of Valium, she recalled.
Soon after, a second gift arrived.
“Did the defendant send you another care package?” asked prosecutor Joan Illuzzi-Orbon.
“It was a box of chocolate penises … I thought it was disgusting and inappropriate,” Sciorra replied.
Sciorra, who has appeared on “The Sopranos,” is one of three women Weinstein is accused of sexually assaulting — and the first to take the stand against the fallen movie mogul at his trial.
The Brooklyn-born actress claims he raped her in her Manhattan apartment in 1993 or 1994, then forcibly performed oral sex on her.
Weinstein is charged with two counts of predatory sexual assault, two counts of rape and one count of criminal sex act and faces up to life in prison.
This might be one of a few instances where getting chocolate dick is a bad thing.
