Sexual violence comes in many forms. It can be defined as any unwanted sexual activity that is forced, threatened, coerced, or manipulated. Sexual violence is motivated by the need to control, dominate, humiliate, and harm another individual. It violates a person’s feeling of trust and safety and impacts individuals, families, and communities as a whole. Sexual violence can include:

  • Sexual assault/rape 
  • Child sexual abuse 
  • Incest 
  • Criminal sexual contact/unwanted touching 
  • Internet stalking to obtain sex 
  • Drug-facilitated sexual assault 
  • Sexual harassment 
  • Voyeurism 
  • Exhibitionism
