Have You Been A Victim of Sexual Assault?
The general understanding of sexual assault is sexual contact of any form without consent. However, the laws defining sexual assault vary from state to state. Sexual assault is not only limited to sexual contact but includes:
- Penetration without consent
- Oral sex without consent
- Exposing children to pornography
- Taking inappropriate pictures of children
- Flashing one’s private parts to another person
- Statutory rape
- Criminal transmission of HIV
- Having a sexual relationship with a family member
Sexual assault cases stem from an abuse of power but have a number of contributing factors to them:
- Age – often children are too young to comprehend or to protect themselves from sexual assault.
- Size – a large physical size can be used to intimidate and influence individuals into sexual assault.
- Authority – persons who hold a position of power take advantage of those underneath them.
Is Rape Sexual Assault?
Rape is a type of sexual assault which is generally defined as the act of sexual intercourse by force or without consent. The victims of rape are usually left defenseless which in turn causes a great deal of emotional and physical distress to that person, sometimes leaving them with post-traumatic stress disorder.
