Definition of child sexual exploitation for Scotland, and summary of how the definition should be applied.

Child sexual exploitation is a form of child sexual abuse in which a person(s), of any age takes advantage of a power imbalance to force or entice a child into engaging in sexual activity in return for something received by the child and/or those perpetrating or facilitating the abuse.

As with other forms of child sexual abuse, the presence of perceived consent does not undermine the abusive nature of the act.
