  1. Offensive Touching Sexual Assault - the touching of an unwilling or non-consensual person’s intimate parts (such as genitalia, groin, breast, buttocks, mouth, and/or clothes, covering them); touching an unwilling person with one’s own intimate parts: or forcing an unwilling person to touch another's intimate parts.
  2. Non-consensual Sexual Assault – unwilling or non-consensual penetration of any bodily opening with any object or body part. This includes, but is not limited to, penetration of a bodily opening without consent through the use of coercion.
  3. Forced Sexual Assault - unwilling or non-consensual penetration of any bodily opening with any object or body part that is committed either by force, threat, intimidation, or through exploitation of another’s mental or physical condition of which the assailant was aware or should have been aware.
