Synopsis

Prison Sex Practice and Policy by Christopher Hensley

Sex in prison remains a taboo topic, largely ignored by scientists and society alike. This comprehensive volume explores prison sex, presenting original research on consensual and nonconsensual intercourse, as well as the effects of conjugal visitation policies, HIV/AIDS management, and the treatment of sexually assaulted inmates. The authors also shed light on the sexual hierarchies that form in prisons. The data, interview excerpts, and policy recommendations found throughout the work provide an evocative illustration of U.S. prison systems and their profound effect on society. This study of consensual and nonconsensual prison sex provides an evocative illustration of U.S. prison systems and their profound effect on society.

It is refreshing to see a book that puts all the related concerns into place. - Chau-Pu Chiang An excellent source for anyone seeking information about prisons, as well as prison sex. - Suzanne E. Tallichet
