What Is Child Sexual Abuse?

What exactly is childhood sexual abuse, also referred to as child molestation? According to the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN), child sexual abuse is when an adult or older adolescent uses a child for sexual stimulation or gratification.

Some forms of child sex abuse include:

  • Exposing oneself to a child
  • Inappropriate touching of a child
  • Masturbation in the presence of a child
  • Obscene phone calls or text messages
  • Showing a child explicit pornographic images or movies
  • Taking inappropriate photos of a child
  • Requesting a child to send inappropriate photos of themselves
  • Intercourse of any kind

Cases of child sexual abuse often involve an inappropriate use of authority, in which someone holding a position of authority takes advantage of a child. The child may feel obligated to take part in the abuse simply because the person has a position of authority.

Of course, there are many other factors and facets of child sexual abuse, as well. If you have questions about child sexual abuse, don’t hesitate to reach out for answers.
