Sexual dating violence
Dating violence can inflict long‑lasting pain, putting survivors at increased risk of substance abuse, depression, poor academic performance, suicidal ideation, and future violence. In one Texas high school, a student was raped in the band room.
After reporting it to her teacher, she was told to confront her attacker to discuss what happened.
Examples of relationship abuse include, but are not limited to: attempting to cause or causing bodily injury by hitting, slapping, punching, hair pulling, kicking, sexual assault and/or other forms of unwanted physical contact that causes harm; knowingly restricting the movements of another person; isolating or confining a person for a period of time; controlling or monitoring behavior; being verbally and/or emotionally abusive; exhibiting extreme possessiveness or jealousy.
Sexual Assault is any sexual penetration (anal, oral or vaginal), however slight, with any object or sexual intercourse by one or more persons upon another without effective consent.
Dating violence is violence that occurs within a dating relationship rather than, say, marriage; and dating violence is as much a problem for teenagers as it is for adults.Sexual penetration includes vaginal or anal penetration by a penis, object, tongue or finger and oral copulation by mouth to genital contact or genital to mouth contact.Sexual Misconduct is any intentional sexual touching of a person, however slight, with any object without effective consent.Sexual violence in dating relationships is also a major concern.A survey of adolescent and college students revealed that date rape accounted for 67% of sexual assaults and 60% of rapes take place in the victim's home or in that of a friend or relative.
