Sexual assault is a broad term to describe any unwanted (nonconsensual) sexual contact gained with or without force that can include:
- Oral Sex
- Anal Sex
Consensual sexual behavior is mutually desired and freely chosen. If you have been forced or coerced into sexual contact with someone without your consent, it is not your fault.
For Legal Definitions see Chapter 5 of the Survivor Guide
