Sexual Assault Support Services (SASS) Alliance of Hope, Safety Family Violence Clinic Make an appointment online – or call (541) 346-8555 We avoid using the terms “rape” or “rape by acquaintances” and urge others not to use these descriptions. These terms can lead to confusion about whether “rape” is somehow different or less serious than rape. In fact, in eight out of 10 sexual assaults, the perpetrator is someone the victim knows. Instead, we call it a crime, followed by information about the perpetrator. For example, it is appropriate to say that a person was “sexually assaulted by an intimate partner” or “sexually assaulted by a family member.” It`s not always easy to know what to say when someone tells you they`ve been sexually assaulted, especially if it`s a friend or family member.
