    Yes.  I was issued a 'rape kit' for the

    all male maximum slam.  Not at state

    hospital for the criminal insane of all 

    gender and the county jails I qualified

    for.  People are still doing extra years

    because of my observations tendered

    under oath to judicial procedures.

    Of course it's not a myth.  Prison rapes certainly happen.  They are a way of exercising power and dominance within a prison hierarchy, for one thing, and let's face it: when you put a large group of healthy young men or women into a communal, institutional setting with NO access to the opposite sex, what do you THINK is going to happen? 

    Anyone who thinks it's rare in the UK has his head in the sand. A great many UK prison inmates have been subjected to some form of sexual abuse.  One problem is that HM's prison system prefers not to keep records on the subject.

    In some countries it's rife, others it is rare.
