Many statutes, including New Hampshire's, now define sexual
assault as nonconsensual sexual penetration by physical force,
by threat of bodily harm, or when the victim is incapable of
giving consent by virtue of mental illness or intoxication.
Legally, acquaintance rape carries the same penalties as sexual
assault committed by a stranger.

Examples of Sexual Assault:
- Unwanted sexual touching
- Forcing sex on an unwilling partner
- Demanding sexual acts that the partner
does not want to perform
- Hurtful sexual acts
Sexual Assault is non-consensual sex. It does
not matter if the two people are...
- Living together
Sexual Activity that is non-consensual is
AGAINST THE LAW.
