Sexual abuse

Your partner never has the right to force you or threaten you to make you have sex or intimidate you into engaging in sexual activity – like ‘sexting’ – regardless of how long you’ve been together.

You should always have the option to say no, and to refuse to perform certain sexual acts if they make you feel uncomfortable.

If your partner constantly forces you to do things against your wishes, or criticises your performance, that is sexual abuse. Your partner is using sex as a way of exerting his power and control over you.

You may feel uncomfortable or worried about telling people what is going on, but sexual abuse is a recognised form of domestic abuse – people will believe you, they will listen to you, and there is help available.
