For over 10 years, teens have been asking us questions on every topic imaginable. While we are no longer taking new questions, we have a wealth of information we would like to share with teenagers.
Questions about suicide? Call the NATIONAL SUICIDE HOTLINE 1-800-SUICIDE (1-800-784-2433).
Navigate: FAQ Home Page > Rape/Sexual Assult > What is attempted rape?
To answer your question, attempted rape is usually an attempt by one person to have some kind of sexual intercourse with an unwilling person. This could involve pressure to have sex against a person's will, using a date rape drug to incapacitate a person, or physically attempting to force a person to have sex.
If anything like this has happened, please call or check out RAINN and they will connect you with a counselor in your area who can help. Good luck!
