This is a pretty good standard, the only thing I'd add is that sexual assault is a much broader umbrella term whereas rape is a specific act (i.e. rape, digital penetration, sexual battery, sodomy, etc are all types of sexual assault). What you said about location is important though, as legal definitions may vary by jurisdiction.

What about if there was digital touching like fingering and attempted penetration but not actually penetrating?


Winsoryyl

Fingering and other similar actions (using sex toys, other objects, etc) are called digital penetration and, if they are done without consent, are considered sexual assault.
