What is Sexual Assault?

Sexual Assault, including rape, occurs when a person is forced or coerced, physically or verbally, into any type of sexual activity with another person, whether the assailant is a friend, acquaintance, or stranger. Rape, in the State of Ohio, is legally defined as forced or coerced vaginal, oral, or anal penetration with an object, penis or other body part. Force and coercion signify a lack of consent to sexual activity. Rape occurs when consent to engage in sexual conduct is never given or when consent is obtained through the following conditions:
  • force
  • threat of force
  • manipulation
  • impairment by being forced or tricked to consume alcohol or other drugs
  • unconsciousness

Sexual Assault is an Act of Violence, Not Sex

Sexual assault, including rape, is motivated by a need for power and control, or by anger. Assailants use sex as a weapon in order to degrade, humiliate, injure, and control their victims.
