What is rape?
Rape is when someone forces another person to have sex against their will. Most rape victims are female, but men can be victims too.
Sexual assault is being forced or pressured to take part in sexual activity including unwanted touching, ‘sexting’ (texting sexual images), being forced to watch or be involved in pornography or sexual bullying.
Rape or sexual assault can be committed by a stranger, but it’s more likely to be someone you know.
