What Does Oral Copulation by Force Mean?
The term copulation is a sophisticated term that refers to sexual intercourse. Oral copulation is a form of sexual intercourse that originates in the victim’s mouth. The mouth of the victim touches the offender’s genitalia in a sexual manner because he or she forced the person to do so.
The traditional concept of forced oral copulation is that the offender physically pushes the other person into the act against his or her will. However, some other situations can count as forced copulation, as well. One example is taking advantage of an intoxicated person who is too discombobulated and weak to resist the act. The offender can either place his or her mouth on the victim or force his or her genitals on the victim.
An offender can use threats to force a person into the act of oral copulation, as well. A person’s boss, for example, may threaten to fire him or her if the person refuses to comply. The person may also threaten to initiate some type of falsified legal proceeding if the person does not comply with the request. You may be facing accusations of any of the above-stated occurrences.
