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.
Sexual assault happens to people of every age, race, religion, gender identity, class, and sexuality. It can happen to people with disabilities and people without them.
No matter where you were, what you were doing, what you were wearing, or if you were drunk or under influence of drugs – sexual assault is not your fault.
