Kevin Clash -- the voice of Elmo -- did NOT have sexual intercourse with his 2nd accuser while Cecil Singleton was underage ... but they did engage in some dry-humping ... this according to Singleton. 

Cecil just held a media conference about the lawsuit he filed against Clash in New York -- describing the allegations against the former "Sesame Street" star.

According to Singleton, his sexual relationship with Clash began when he was 15 and Clash was an adult ... and initially lasted for 2 weeks. But they picked things up a while later.

Singleton claims that while they never had sexual intercourse, the two did engage in several sexual activities together ... including "groping, masturbation, intense kissing, dry-humping."

Singleton says they had sexual intercourse years later ... when Cecil was an adult.

Cecil says he broke off the initial relationship because he felt Kevin liked him too much -- and Cecil didn't think he could handle the relationship.

We broke the story ... Cecil is suing Clash for more than $5 million in damages ... claiming he's suffering psychological and emotional issues caused by the relationship.

Kevin Clash is the highest paid puppeteer because of the licensing deals he made using his voice for Elmo toys. He made millions from the Tickle Me Elmo doll. He is a multi-millionaire and it's sad Kevin used such poor judgment with sexual partners and when you get involved with parasites expect to get sucked off financially. Just because he didn't have sex with them until 18 he had no business messing around with them thinking he was skirting the laws prior to age of consent.

Kevin did to them what many older gay rich men do, they promise these young boys a rainbow bridge until they get too old and he loses interest in them. Then the young men feel foolish and used and look for a pay day when they aren't young and pretty enough anymore to attract sugar daddies. It's a crime to get old in the gay community, unless you're rich.

You were so traumatized by the man that you went back to him years later to have sex with him?
My guess is that this guy wanted more than a casual relationship and when Clash went elsewhere his feelings were hurt and said "OMG I totally need $5 million to make me feel better."

Mr. Singleton, all I can suggest is that you better be squeaky f'ing clean in the public records because a) Kevin Clash isn't beholden to PBS or Sesame Workshop anymore and b) if you aren't, you and anyone else foolish enough to pull this stunt will be ruined professionally and socially.

OMG...LOL... I believe Cecil is really Sheldon in make -up. He was humiliated with the $125,000 settlement, so he decided to give it a second try.

this is truly disgusting. I SERIOUSLY don't want to know that Elmo had gay sex. It's as bad as knowing as your parents or siblings have sex. It's just something that I NEVER wanted to know in this life.

If the kid was under 18 years old or 16 years in New York, any sexual pleasure with a minor is a crime.

He wants 5 mil for dry humping an old man? What! Besides, two men can't have sexual intercourse only butt sex. Stupid.

They need to just leave the dude alone. He already lost a job he's had for 20+ years. I would counter sue for defamation and lost wages.

I've never heard intercourse defined as anything except a penis inserted in a vagina, so no, they didn't have intercourse

Damn, first off I cannot even think of buying Elmo anymore with all this crap associated to the character. Second, the man is not only gay, but he is obviously a pedophile as well .... Where the hell are the parents when you have sons being catered to by 30-40 some year old men??????? This is all very disturbing
