I can't say I've been sexually assaulted. I don't consider this story to be that of an assault because I never said no. Also, it didn't get as far as sex. But I never said yes. We were cuddling and he asked me to sit up and before I could think, he was touching me. My face went blank and my heart started beating fast out of fear. All I could think about was how he was violating me. I was completely frozen. He reached into my pants and I shuddered and pushed his hand away. I said "woah" but that was it. He got the message, I only wish one of us had gotten it sooner.
