    Around these parts an "unwanted sex act" is called a SEXUAL ASSAULT. When you call a sexual assault an "unwanted sex act" you make it seem like it's not violence, which of course it is. When a woman meets a fireman on OKCupid and shows up at his work for a date and he forces her to perform a "sex act" on her, it isn't a "sex act" anymore, it's an assault.
