Max Clifford admitted to police that he engaged in "slap and tickle" in his office but denied ever forcing women to have sex with him, a jury has heard.
The 70-year-old listened from the dock as extracts of his police interviews were read to jurors.
Asked by detectives whether his office was "sexually charged" in the 1980s, Clifford told police: "That's probably right [...] "It was that kind of time, entertainers, that's quite possible."
However, Mr Clifford said he had never had sex with anyone in his office and claimed "no-one was ever put in a position to anything that they didn't want to do".
"I'm not that kind of man. I would be thoroughly ashamed of myself if I was putting a girl in that kind of predicament."
Mr Clifford denies 11 counts of indecent assault against seven alleged victims.
An anonymous letter from an alleged victim to publicist Max Clifford was read out in court today.
A woman said she contemplated suicide after being sexually abused by Max Clifford who "took pleasure in degrading her", a court has heard.
