dc.description.abstract This thesis investigates the historical and political influence of prison rape legislation in the United States and the effect of prison rape on the sexual health and well-being of male inmates. I examined a series of case studies using content analysis, quantitative data provided by the Bureau of Justice Statistics and the personal accounts of three former inmates. My findings suggest that the institutional erasure of consensual intercourse is the result of a prison rape narrative that seeks to politically eradicate the sexual autonomy of inmates through a system of violence. The analysis seeks to critique current prison reform policies and offers insight into the process of prisonization and sexual encounters. Understanding the complexities of inmate sexual assault and consensual intercourse is imperative in the implementation of prison-based sexual health reform and in the advancement of international standards of prisoner rights. en
