What is Sexual Intercourse?


Print

‘Sexual Intercourse’ is defined by section 61H of the Crimes Act 1900 as:

– any penetration of a female’s genitalia, or anus of any person, by any part of another person or by an object,

– any penetration of any person’s mouth by any part of another’s penis, or

– cunnilingus.

A defence to ‘sexual assault’ is where the penetration was for ‘proper medical purposes’.
