Daai Ding: Sex, Sexual Violence and Coercion in Men's Prisons

This paper discusses the social circumstances surrounding both sex and violence amongst male inmates of South African prisons, and in particular, the apparently common convergence between the two – when sex is forced or performed in an act of violence. Data was gathered primarily through in-depth interviews and in-depth focus groups with ex-prisoners and current prisoners.
