  • I don't believe either of them should exist as legal concepts. Existing laws about using illegal force or threat of force, or drugging someone, are adequate to deal with whatever harm is caused, if any.

  • I think penetration is the clear cut determining factor. But you can’t penetrate a man per say if a female is trying to rape a guy, or a female authority figure is raping a little child, so that’s where the lines get a little burry.

  • usually rape is penetrating or doing any sexual acts that are not wanted. Sexual assault is more on the lines of unwanted touching.

  • Penetration is the line, set by the law.

    Rape is the forced sexual intercourse. Sexual assault is any other forced sexual act that is achieved with aggression.

  • Rape is being forced to have sex against one's will. Sexual assault can be literally anything that is remotely sexual and also unwanted.

  • When he doesn't get to penetrate you with either his fingers or penis it's assault, when he successfully penetrates you it's rape
