Physical abuse invariably involves injury or trauma. Sexual abuse is defined as attempted sexual touching of another person without their consent and includes sexual act (rape, sodomy – oral genital and anal genital contact) or fondling. The generally accepted definition is when one engages in sexual activity in which he/she cannot give consent, unprepared for apprehension or an activity that violates law or social taboos of society. This includes fondling and all forms of oral genital, genital or anal contact with the child whether the child is clothed or unclothed as well as in touching abuses such as exhibitionism or voyeurism or involving the child in pornography.
