Sexual intercourse between these women were typically for fun and enjoyment, sometimes transitioning into a serious relationship. However, Dr Alisa Stevens, Lecturer in Criminology at the University of Southampton, was able to interview 26 former prisoners during the summer of — 24 men and two women.
