Having sex with another person who is unconscious or who has not given
his or her consent is also considered rape.
Statutory rape refers to sexual intercourse with a person who is under the age of 18.

Child pornography refers to the possession, production, advertisement, development, duplication,
and / or exchange of pornographic films and pictures of anyone under the
