Childhood Sexual Abuse

Sexual contact with a youngster constitutes child sexual abuse, a type of child maltreatment. A youngster cannot give his or her consent to any sexual conduct. When a perpetrator interacts with a youngster in this way, they are engaging in behavior that can harm the victim for years to come. There is no requirement for physical contact between a perpetrator and a victim for child sexual abuse to occur. Some types of sexual abuse include but are not limited to:

  • Exhibitionism

  • Fondling

  • Intercourse

  • Forcing a minor to masturbate or engaging in sexual activity while the youngster is present

  • Conversations, calls, texts, or online interactions that are obscene

  • Producing, owning, or sharing pornographic images or movies of children

  • Sex of any kind with a minor, including vaginal, oral, or anal

  • Sex trafficking

  • Any contact of a sexual nature that involves a minor and a legal adult

A perpetrator is not required to be a strange adult to hurt a child. They could be the child's elder brother or playmate, a family member, a caretaker, a teacher, a coach or instructor, or the parent of another child, among other relationships.
