A question that comes to mind is what's the difference between normal sex play between children and child-on-child abuse, or is it all defined as the same? I suppose the usual criteria could apply, as in if it is consensual, but as the article described this is hard to discern with children since they have no understanding of what other people's boundaries are in the first place. I know for myself I was involved in sexual activity at around the age of ten with older, more experienced children. I can comfortably call it abuse since a) I was coerced into the activities and while curious was not a fully willing participant, and b), the sexual activities in question were not age appropriate for either myself or for the kids who initiated them, even if they were older than I was. That said, this is how I define my own experience so how do the authorities view it objectively, the difference between abuse and innocent sex play I mean?
