Coercion is a tactic that perpetrators use to exert power and control over another person. Coercion occurs when a person intimidates, tricks, forces, or manipulates someone into engaging in sexual activity without the use of physical force. Perpetrators may also use threats of violence, blackmail, drugs, and/or alcohol to coerce someone into sexual activity.
A perpetrator may use coercive statements to manipulate another person. Examples of these include:
🗣If you really loved me, you would have sex with me
🗣If you won’t have sex with me, I’ll find someone who will
🗣But you’ve been flirting with me all night
🗣 I didn’t realize you were such a prude
🗣You’re gonna give me blue balls
