Difference of acts of lasciviousness, slander by deed and unjust vexation.
The common denominator present in unjust vexation, slander by deed and act of lasciviousness is irritation or annoyance. Without any other concurring factor, the offense would be merely unjust vexation. If in addition to the irritation or annoyance, there was attendant publicity and dishonor or contempt, the offense would be slander by deed. However if in addition to the annoyance or irritation, there was present any of the circumstances provided for in Art. 335, of Revised Penal Code, on rape, the crime would be act of lasciviousness.
