In a male prison 80 per cent of visitors are female. So in other words in prison (much like life) the people that are loyal and stand by your side tend to be female.
Often when a woman is sent to prison then it means the end of her relationship.

They would publicly hold hands and show affection towards each other. Clearly, if a female prison officer was having sex with a female inmate, they wouldn't hold hands in public – the officer would have lost her job.
There were male inmates that would have sex together, and there were male inmates that would have sex with male members of staff.
