All Adultery, Incest, and Paedophilia is Harmful Sexual Abuse!
Once in Savatthi the Blessed Buddha said this:
What, householder friends, is the Dhamma explanation befitting for oneself? 
Here, householder friends, a Noble Disciple reflects thus: If someone were to 
commit adultery with my wife, that would neither be pleasing, nor agreeable to me. 
Similarly, if I were to commit adultery with another man's wife, that would also 
be illicit sex, & horny fornication, which would neither be pleasing, nor agreeable 
to that other man either.... 
What is displeasing and disagreeable to me, is also displeasing and disagreeable 
to any other being too. How can I harm & hurt another being with what provoke,
annoy and exasperate myself? Having reflected repeatedly thus, then gradually:
1: He/she will carefully avoid all adultery, sexual and sensual abuse...
2: He/she will persuade others also to abstain from all adultery & sexual abuse...
3: He/she will speak praising behaving faithfully, loyal, in trustworthy fidelity... 
In this very way is this advantageous bodily behaviour purified in it's 3 respects!
One should never mentally hurt or harm other beings, even when Greedy for Sex!
What is Sexual Abuse (kamesu-micchacara)?:
