Intimate Partner Sexual Violence

Intimate partner sexual violence (IPSV) is when an individual uses force, threats, manipulation, or coercion to control their partner and forces them into unwanted sexual contact or activity. IPSV can also include birth control sabotage, forced unsafe sex practices, and/or controlling a female partner’s decisions regarding pregnancy. IPSV can happen regardless of age, race, ethnicity, gender, religion, geography, ability, appearance, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
