Highlights of the Ordinance. Key Issues and Analysis. Key Features.
There are a range of crimes that can be considered as sexual offences, including non-consensual crimes such as rape or sexual assault, crimes against children including child sexual abuse or grooming, and crimes that exploit others for a sexual purpose, whether in person or online. Crimes can occur between strangers, friends, acquaintances, current or ex-partners, or family members. This is an overarching framework to address crimes that have been identified as being committed primarily but not exclusively by men against women.
There your boyfriend sits, sexy as he be, telling you that he wants to give you control; he wants you to throw him down on the bed and show him who's boss. Done right, being the boss of your boyfriend for an hour or an evening is a little bit like extending foreplay for hours, giving normally ordinary acts a sexual charge. Domination can mean many things, but if you and he are taken by the idea, here are a few ways to get started that nearly anyone can enjoy, safely and easily.
The majority of tertiary students are in favour of tougher punishments for sexual offences committed on campus, a poll by The New Paper shows. This issue became a hot topic after National University of Singapore NUS student Monica Baey, 23, complained that a male student who filmed her showering without her consent at student residence Eusoff Hall last November had been inadequately punished. The police issued the culprit a month conditional warning, while NUS suspended him for a semester, banned him from entering all on-campus housing, ordered him to undergo mandatory counselling and to apologise to Miss Baey. Fifty students, comprising an equal number of men and women, were asked whether they felt the punishments meted out by the police and NUS were adequate and to give their reasons.

You do not have to hit someone to be charged with assault; pushing or just threatening them can still be classed as assault.
The purpose of these guidelines is solely to protect young people aged 13, 14 and 15 from harm. The question of compliance with the law is a separate issue and is not addressed by these guidelines. There are some points where the two issues are likely to coincide; for example, where a young person is at risk of harm as a result of sexual abuse. There are other points where they do not coincide; for example, where young people are involved in consensual sexual relationships and are not at risk of harm.
For example, there are offences against young children—under the age of 10, 12 or 13 years of age, depending on the jurisdiction  —and offences against older children—generally under the age of 16,  but in some cases 17,  or 18 years of age. Accordingly, the sentences attached to those offences are higher than for those against older children. For example, in NSW, different penalties are provided where the child is under the age of 10 years 25 years imprisonment ; between the ages of 10 and 14 years 16 years imprisonment ; and between the ages of 14 and 16 years 10 years imprisonment.
