When I was 8 or 9 I would go to my friend's house and her older sister who was like 16 or 17 would make me do something that i wasn't comfortable with. I remember her calling me into the kitchen and making me grind against her. She was crouched against the corner and i was in the same position. I can't remember if my pants were down or if hers was. I never told anyone except my current therapist because i was afraid of her. I can't remember how many times it happened but i know that it happened more than once. I sometimes have flashbacks about it.

I'm sorry to hear about what you went through when you were younger.

It could count as sexual assault as your friend's older sister was older and should've known better. She took advantage of the fact that you were younger and didn't have any knowledge of sexual activity at that point.

Inappropriate sexual behaviour from a teenager can happen for many reasons and can sometimes be a bit complicated. But whatever the reason behind the behaviour, it doesn't excuse what happened to you and how it made you feel.

It's understandable that you wouldn't feel like telling many people, but I'm glad you did tell your current therapist about what happened. I hope your therapist can help you process what happened and the flashbacks and emotions that it brings up for you

The key words in your post is you were uncomfortable in the situation so yes it does count. You as being so young were put into a situation probably not even know what the Hell you were doing. It is definitely sexual assault. I am glad you were able to report this to your therapist. You are your voice that can make these things clear and also help yourself and others.
