Sexual abuse is when someone forces you or threatens you to make you have sexual activity or contact with them. This includes any sexual act that you did not consent to and doesn’t just mean penetrative sex. It includes kissing and unwanted touching.
If you say yes because you are frightened or have been pressured into it – this is not consent. Remember, even if you have said yes in the past, it does not give someone the right to do it again without your consent.
If you are experiencing sexual abuse, Rape Crisis can support you. In an emergency, always call 999.
