What is Sexual Abuse?

Many people believe that sexual abuse is just about physical sex. It is not!

Sexual Abuse can be physical, verbal, emotional, and can include:

  • Sexual touching and fondling
  • Exposing children to adult sexual activity or to pornographic movies and/or photographs
  • Having children pose, undress, or perform in a sexual fashion on film or in person
  • “Peeping” into bathrooms or spying on children
  • Rape or attempted rape
