I've searched for information on sex scenes and abuse etc. Now that I understand more about depicting these scenarios I have a question in regards to the first scene being that of a sexual assault. Since the mc is obviously new to the reader at this point will they feel completely detached from the scene? It's meant to trigger emotions but I'm concerned it will not achieve that since she is still a stranger to them. Are there any thoughts on this? Sorry if I posted in the wrong section, I'm still learning my way around here.
