Coercion may include: or Use of varying degrees of force. or Psychological Intimidation. or Extortion. or Threats (e.g. physical harm or failure to obtain a job or qualification, etc.). Or Sexual violence may also occur if the person is unable to give consent, e.g. when he/she is drunk, under the effects of a stupefacient, asleep or mentally incapacitated. Sexual violence includes assault and sexual abuse.
