Forced sex with a close relation like a sister or brother also counts as sexual assault. The abuser might also be another member of the family such as an aunt, uncle or even a parent.
Rape may be initiated through threats or by physically forcing a victim for sex. Experts say that no weapons have been used in 8 out of 10 rapes, which is what makes the act so horrifying. Any person from any race, cast or creed can be a victim.

Sexual Exploitation through Professionals
Sexual exploitation through a professional involves sexual contact between any kind of professional and a client. For example, a doctor might use his position to sexually assault a patient. This might also involve a tutor.
Child sexual abuse is by far the most prevalent type of abuse so far. It affects thousands of children and teens each year. The worst part of the problem is that the adults who are charged with taking care of the children are often unprepared or unwilling to deal with it when they do face it.
This makes such incidents go unreported with the unfortunate victims left stigmatized and of course, left to deal with their traumatic experiences on their own. Whatever form it manifests, childhood abuse always violates a young person’s rights. The resultant trauma also has the potential to turn into physical and mental health conditions if it is not nipped in the bud.
Adults can face sexual violence in the form of domestic abuse. Most of the incidents involve the abuser’s desire to exercise power by forcing their partners to perform sexually when they don’t want to or verbally abusing them.
This might involve unwelcome sexual advances, making the victim go through sexual or verbal sexual conduct or a request for sexual favors. Female employees are at the most risk in this regard.
