Child sexual abuse is the exploitation of a child for sexual gratification by an adult or any significantly older person. It is called incest if it occurs between family members, including mothers, fathers, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, adoptive and step relations, legitimate or illegitimate children or relatives of whole or half blood. Child sexual abuse should not be confused with physical contacts between an adult and a child that are fond or playful expressions of love.
