When addressing the issue of Sex Crimes such as sexual harassment, sexual assault, and rape one must understand how each of these terms are defined.  child pornography Many people use those terms interchangeably and incorrectly. It is important to understand what each of these different terms mean and when to use them in the correct context. When talking about sexual harassment it relates to the unlawful harassment of a person, like an employee, based upon that persons sex. This harassment includes unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical sexual actions. When a person engages in sexual intercourse without the complainants consent is known as sexual assault. Lastly, in the Pennsylvania Crimes Codes rape is defined as "When a person engages in sexual intercourse with the complainant; by forcible compulsion, by threat of forcible compulsion that would prevent resistance by a person of reasonable resolution, or who is unconscious or where the person knows that the complainant is unaware the sexual intercourse is occurring."
