A sexual assault is any form of sexual activity that has been forced by one person upon another without consent. Sexual assault can happen between people of the same or opposite sex. It includes any unwanted act of a sexual nature such as kissing, fondling, oral sex, intercourse, or other forms of penetration, either vaginal or anal. Most victims of sexualized violence abuse are assaulted by someone they know rather than by a stranger. It may be a family member, co-worker, date, boyfriend, friend, or another individual within close proximity to the victim. Sexual assault is a crime.
