It is a form of sexual abuse and it is against the law.

For example, someone may try and get you to do sexual things by:
• offering you money
• hurting or threatening to hurt you
• humiliating or threatening to humiliate you
• buying you presents
• taking you out to places
• giving you a place to stay
• telling you that they love you
