Sex crimes are forms of human sexual behavior that are crimes. Someone who commits one is said to be a sex offender.
Some sex crimes are crimes of violence that involve sex. Others are violations of social taboos, such as indecent exposure.
There is much variation among cultures as to what is considered a crime or not, and in what ways or to what extent crimes are punished.
Acts regarded as crimes almost universally include the following non-consensual sex crimes:
- Child sexual abuse or molestation
- Child pornography (definition varies significantly)
- Lust murder
- Rape, sexual assault and other forms of sexual abuse
Sexual harassment is also viewed as a crime in Western cultures.
Liberal western cultures are far more tolerant of acts such as oral sex or transvestism that have traditionally been held to be crimes in some other cultures, but combine this with lesser tolerance for the remaining crimes.
Cultures with highly censorious sex laws regarding adult sex acts often have high levels of concealed sexual abuse, particularly of children.
Many consensual sexual actions or activities are only viewed as crimes in some jurisdictions, including:
- Anal sex
- Sex among juveniles (usually as Statutory rape)
- Oral sex
- Various Paraphilias/Fetishes such as
- transvestic fetishism
- Prostitution and/or pimping
- Ownership of vibrators and other sex toys
