Which term describes forced sexual activity with someone unable to give consent


Class, let's discuss what is meant by the term 'sexual assault'. Sexual assault refers to any non-consensual sexual act that is forced upon another individual. This could take the form of rape, child sexual abuse, groping, or indecent assault. It is a deeply traumatic experience for the victim, leading to feelings of depression, low self-esteem, and loss of trust and confidence. Remember, consent is essential in any sexual encounter and anything outside of that is a serious violation of one's body and rights.
