Touching behaviors include:

  • Touching a child’s genitals (penis,testicles,vulva,breasts, or anus) for sexual pleasure or other unnecessary reasons.
  • Making a child touch someone else’s genitals, or playing sexual (“pants down”) games.
  • Putting objects or body parts (like fingers, tongue or a penis) inside the vulva or vagina, in the mouth, or in the anus of a child for sexual pleasure or other unnecessary reason.

Non-touching behaviors include:

  • Showing pornography to a child.
  • Exposing a person’s genitals to a child.
  • Photographing a child in sexual poses.
  • Encouraging a child to watch or hear sexual acts either in person or on a video.
  • Watching a child undress or use the bathroom, often without the child’s knowledge (known as voyeurism or being a “peeping Tom”).

If you recognize any of these behaviors and do not know how to talk about these issues, or you want further information, in Georgia please call our helpline toll…
