English term or phrase:escalate
что имеется в виду: отношения развиваются или обостряются?
Most child sexual abusers offend against children whom they
know and with whom they have established a relationship. In the majority of cases, abusers gain access to their victims through deception and enticement, seldom using force. Hence abuse typically occurs within a long-term, ongoing relationship between the offender and victim and ***escalates*** over time. While some offenders do seek sexual gratification from the act, it is often not a primary motivation for a rape offender.
