What Is Sexual Assault?
Understanding sexual assault is the first step towards protecting yourself and your body. Sexual assault is an act by which a person is coerced or physically forced to engage sexually with another against their will. It is a form of sexual violence that encompasses rape, groping, or sadistic sexual torture.
It is common for victims to feel confused after being assaulted. If you are unsure whether what you experienced was, in fact, sexual assault, the following can help you clarify the facts and help you determine if you have been a victim.
It was sexual assault if:
- You did not give consent
- You were a minor at the time
- You were under the influence of drugs or alcohol and unable to consent
- You were verbally or physically forced or manipulated
- Your perpetrator used drugs to lower your inhibitions
- Any unwanted contact or touching occurred
It is still sexual assault if:
- You knew your attacker
- You are related to your attacker
- You previously consented to sexual acts with your attacker
- You were or are still in a relationship with your attacker
If you identify with any of the above points, you may have been sexually assaulted and should seek medical attention immediately. After addressing physical and medical concerns, it is in your best interest to speak with a sexual assault attorney who can help you determine your next steps.
