Sexual abuse is any sort of non-consensual sexual contact, including rape. Sexual abuse can happen to men or women of any age. Sexual abuse by an intimate partner can include derogatory name calling, refusal to use contraception, deliberately causing unwanted physical pain during sex, deliberately passing on sexual diseases or infections and using objects, toys, or other items, without consent and in order to cause pain or humiliation. For many victims of abuse it is very difficult to refuse sexual contact since this might lead to negative consequences. Women we talked to had experienced rape and other forms of unwanted sexual behaviour, as well as name-calling.

Abuse in Intimate Relationships

Ideally such relationships are loving and supportive, protective of and safe for each member of the couple. In extreme cases, abusive behavior ends in the death of one or both partners, and, sometimes, other people as well. Non-lethal abuse may end when a relationship ends. Frequently, however, abuse continues or worsens once a relationship is over.
