    is sex.

    if it isn't mutually consensual, then it is something else.

    it seems to me that this is a clear line.

      I think that when you just use one word that has strong biological connotations it gets confusing. There are various forms of sexual behavior that are considered to be unacceptable. It seems pretty arbitrary to try to separate them as not being sexual in nature. I'm a strong opponent of the rape culture and all the lame excuses that are used to justify it, but this particular terminology leaves me scratching my head.
