People outside of prison tend to imagine sex in prison as violent gang attacks on defenceless individuals, but in actual fact, sex in prison is more complicated than the isolated gang rapes that take place.
For the purpose of this study, the researcher followed the qualitative research approach from a constructivist perspective to understand how participants portrayed or constructed their experiences of victimization and/or perpetration of rape.
The population of the study was members of the 28 prison gang with a history of sexual perpetration in prison. Participants for the study were male, released from prison, ages between 25 and 45 years of age. The researcher made use of purposive sampling in the selection of 15 participants.
Data was collected through in depth, face to face interviews starting with open ended questions and probing for in depth experiences, interpretations and meanings. Data was analyzed according to Creswells (1998:140) guidelines for qualitative data analysis and was verified as suggested by Creswell (1998:201).
In order to explore the social context that might have influenced their constructions of experiences, the following question themes were identified:
Participants experiences of family life
Participants experiences of their involvement in crime
Participants gang involvement in Corrective Institutions
Participants experiences of forced sex in prison
Consequences of rape in prison after release
