Sexual harm comes in lots of different forms
When someone has a sexual experience they don’t want, or are forced into any kind of sexual act by another person, they’ve experienced sexual harm.
Sexual harm can happen in lots of different ways:
It might involve physical contact or it could be online.
It might have happened once or maybe lots of times.
It might involve one, two, or more people.
It doesn’t always have to be an actual experience. Sometimes it can be the result of thoughts or behavior about harming other people.
The effects of sexual harm are different for everyone.
