Forms of Sexual Exploitation

Sexual abuse

Sexual abuse is used to describe sexual relations and behaviour between two or more parties which are considered criminally and/ or morally offensive. In context of children and adolescent, sexual abuse is any contact or interaction (physical, visual, verbal or psychological) between a child/adolescent and an adult when the child/adolescent is being used for the sexual stimulation of the perpetrator or any other person.

Sexual abuse consists of sexually inappropriate and non-consensual forced actions, like exposure to sexual materials (such as pornography), the use of inappropriate sexual remarks/language, not respecting the privacy (physical boundaries) of a child or individual (e.g., walking in on someone while dressing or in the bathroom), fondling, exhibitionism, oral sex and forced sexual intercourse (rape).

The mere fact that so many different forms of abuse exist is frightening. Abuse can be physical, mental, verbal, or even intimidation. If the abuse takes the form of sexual harassment, bullying, physical or emotional harm, the results are even more serious.
