Lots of sex in women's jails, not much in men's

Dr Juliet Richters

According to lead researcher Dr Juliet Richters, about 36% of female New South Wales prisoners have sex or sexual contact in jail, but only 6% of male prisoners.

Part of the explanation might be that one third of the female prisoners identified as lesbian or bisexual, but the men were keen to show they weren't gay.
