The Problem

What is child sexual abuse?

Children cannot consent to any form of sexual activity, period. Child sexual abuse can range from fondling or sexual touch, to any form of intercourse, to sex trafficking. Child sexual abuse also does not require physical contact between the abuser and the child. Showing children pornography, exposing oneself to a minor or convincing the minor to expose themselves in person or over the internet, exchanging sexually obscene messages, are all forms of abuse as well.
