What is Rape and Sexual assault?

Rape and sexual assault can happen to anyone

Rape is when someone puts their penis into (penetrates) the vagina, anus or mouth of another person without their consent.

Assault by penetration is when someone puts another part of their body – or an object – into another person’s vagina or anus without that person’s consent.

Sexual assault is when someone touches another person in a sexual way, without that person’s consent.
