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.
