What is sexual violence? Sexual violence means that someone forces or manipulates someone else into unwanted sexual activity without their consent. Anyone can experience sexual violence including: children, teens, young adults, adults, and elders. Those who sexually abuse can be acquaintances, family members, trusted individuals or strangers. http://www.nsvrc.org/saam
Sexual violence is a crime. It comes in many forms.
Sexual abuse, also referred to as molestation, is the forcing of undesired sexual behavior by one person upon another. When that force is immediate, of short duration, or infrequent, it is called sexual assault. The offender is referred to as a sexual abuser or (often pejoratively) molester.  The term also covers any behavior by any adult towards a child to stimulate either the adult or child sexually. When the victim is younger than the age of consent, it is referred to as child sexual abuse.
There are many types of sexual abuse, including:
Unwanted touching, either of a child or an adult.
Exposing a child to pornography.
Saying sexually suggestive statements towards a child (child molestation).
The use of a position of trust to compel otherwise unwanted sexual activity without physical force (or can lead to attempted rape or sexual assault).
Certain forms of sexual harassment.
