The new claim came hours after the Senate Judiciary Committee agreed to a hearing on Thursday after almost a week of uncertainty over whether Christine Blasey Ford would appear to testify about her earlier claim against Mr Kavanaugh.
The New Yorkersaid 53-year-old Deborah Ramirez described the incident in an interview after being contacted by the magazine.
A tentative agreement has been reached for the Senate Judiciary Committee to hear testimony Thursday from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and the woman accusing him of sexual assault from decades ago. "If Republicans were to fail to defend and confirm such an obviously and eminently qualified and decent nominee", Ralph Reed, the founder of the Faith and Freedom Coalition, told the New York Times, "then it will be very hard to motivate and energize faith-based and conservative voters in November".
"We're not going to turn over to the other side how many witnesses to call", Graham added.
Vice President Mike Pence calls Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh "a man of integrity with impeccable credentials". Kavanaugh is the most unpopular Supreme Court nominee since 2005, according to NBC News polling - more unpopular than Harriet Miers, who was nominated by President George W. Bush but ultimately withdrew under criticism over her qualifications.
"Senator Feinstein also could have referred these allegations anonymously and confidentially to the Federal Bureau of Investigation when she was made aware of them", committee staff wrote.
"I remember a penis being in front of my face", said Ramirez, who says she had been drinking.
Ford will testify against Kavanaugh in an open hearing on Thursday, CNN reports.
The magazine reports that after "six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney, Ramirez said that she felt confident enough of her recollections" to recall the incident.
Ford and Kavanaugh are scheduled to testify before a Senate panel on Thursday about what she says was a sexual assault by him at a party when they were teenagers.

Tensions have been running on overdrive since Ms Ford, a 51-year-old college professor in California, went public with her allegation that Mr Kavanaugh assaulted her when they were at a house party in high school.

Keyser's denial, as a female classmate and Ford's last alleged witness, is the most consequential development that has occurred since Ford publicly stepped forward last Sunday and detailed her allegations to the Washington Post. In addition to sidelining Ford's request for anonymity, Feinstein's delay was also unfair to Kavanaugh, the committee staff wrote.
Debra Katz, one of Ford's attorneys, noted that her client has said she didn't share her story with anyone for years.
No matter. As soon as the Democrats leaked word of the Ford letter, grimly serious Democrat Senators and Hollywood actresses marched up to microphones to role-play as outraged surrogates for the "victim". "She has agreed to move forward with a hearing even though the committee has refused to subpoena Mark Judge". "It's also unremarkable that Ms. Keyser does not remember attending a specific gathering 30 years ago at which nothing of outcome happened to her. Dr. Ford, of course, will never forget this gathering because of what happened to her there".
