Sexual assault is non-consensual sexual contact. Women and men of all ages, as well as children, can be victimized by sexual assault. A rapist may be an acquaintance, a relative or a stranger. Victims of sexual assault might take years to recover from the physical and psychological effects caused by rape. Victims may suffer from posttraumatic stress disorder. Victims often experience a sense of shame, humiliation and self-blame, which may lead them to keep rape a secret.
