Why do some guys turn gay in prison?

Why do some guys who appear completely straight in the real world turn gay in prison? Are they secretly gay or is it just because of the lack of sex?

  • There's more rape in men prisons then there are in female cells and this is due to testosterone. Testosterone is their sex hormone but it's usually the ones who are not getting out for a very long time and have been in there for a long time that turn to rape. They haven't seen women in a long time, and are partially stir crazy.

  • 1. It's a very difficult thing to decide between
    2. One can argue that unless one has a tendency to be gay they'll never turn gay or bi
    3. However, fact is nature has presented the urge for sex in such a way that it's made it gender immaterial
    3.1. Idea of nature is to keep that urge going and alive so that procreation continues
    3.2. Gay / bi is seen even in the animal kingdom hence not unique to humans
    4. Based on the above, I'd conclude with vote 'B' :)

  • It is a popular myth.

    "In 2011-12, an estimated 4.0% of state and federal prison inmates and 3.2% of jail inmates reported experiencing one or more incidents of sexual victimization by another inmate or facility staff in the past 12 months or since admission to the facility, if less than 12 months.

    Patterns of inmate-on-inmate sexual victimization in 2011-12 were consistent with patterns in past surveys. Rates reported by prison and jail inmates were higher among females than males, higher among whites than blacks, and higher among inmates with a college degree than those who had not completed high school.

    Eleven male prisons, 1 female prison, and 9 jails were identified as high-rate facilities based on the prevalence of inmate-on-inmate sexual victimization in 2011-12. Eight male prisons, 4 female prisons, and 12 jails were identified as high rate based on the prevalence of staff sexual misconduct. Each of these facilities had a lower bound of the 95%-confidence interval that was at least 55% higher than the average rate among comparable facilities.

    An estimated 1.8% of juveniles ages 16 to 17 held in prisons and jails reported being victimized by another inmate, compared to 2.0% of adults in prisons and 1.6% of adults in jails.

    Among state and federal prison inmates, an estimated 6.3% of those identified with serious psychological distress reported that they were sexually victimized by another inmate. In comparison, among prisoners with no indication of mental illness, 0.7% reported being victimized by another inmate."

    It is actually (like on the outside) far rarer than people believe. There is no dropping soap, etc.

  • en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Situational_sexual_behavior

    There are also some cultures that define "gay" in terms of the role taken, that is, not by who a man goes to bed with but rather by what kind of role he takes when he gets there. That is, butt-poking others is "OK" but if someone butt-pokes *you*, they you are a "fairy". Weird, I know.

  • For three reasons:

    1. You aren't born gay unlike some people want to tell you.

    2. It is about applying power and a hierachy which is important in prison.

    3. Lack of sexual release.

  • Rape is a form of violence due to uncontrollable rage or sexual desires. They fuck other guys cause women aren't available the week and gay become their targets

  • No one is 100% straight so when stuck in prison or when no women are around, that small percentage of gay becomes more active

  • nope they aren't gay but... newcomers in prisons are considered as powerless and weak and they get abused by the stronger ones ; the "bosses" that will take advantage of them because the new prisoners are perceived as "fresh meat"

  • People can't just "turn gay" I'm going to have to say it's because the lack of sex. I mean there's guys in there who go years, and years without sex, and you know guys are horny bastards and you know what they say that some guys "fuck whatever moves" well...

  • Guys like sex a lot, but there are no women. So they start having sex with each other.

  • It's a form of showing dominance. They're not gay unless they were gay from the beginning. Sexual orientation doesn't work like that.
